He was a wonderful host that would always try to make your stay at his place a great time. Mr. Lewis has been missing... More

Enjoyed our stay at Perla De Sosua. Quick walk to the beach and center of town... very convenient. Beach is beautiful!! Rooms were clean and neat. Neither of us had a problem with the facilities. Any time we had questions about food, where to go, we had great conversations with staff, guests...we felt really welcomed.

I've stayed in hotels in every continent and never let a bad review before but then again a hotel has never scammed me before so here it goes. I arrived at the hotel after a long trip from Santo Domingo and on a motoconcho in the rain exhausted. I was told by the manager that the previous owner had run... More

The hotel is now under new management and ownership. They are already making upgrades to this property that have been neglected by the previous owner, such as brand new air conditioners, furniture, remodel of kitchens and bathrooms. I don't understand what the Australian guy below my review is complaining about. The previous owner did not reimburse the new owner for... More

Nobody robbed you. The previous owner collected your payment by credit card a long time ago and after the sale he did not reimburse the new owner. Only a few customers had to cancel their original credit card payment and repay the new owner. For that, customers received a 10% discount for their inconvenience. Every single client (8 to be...

Travelling from Australia and booked a 5 night accom. For family and paid all up. Got an email stating new owners and they WILL NOT honour any PAID bookings due to old owner but will kindly OFFER 10% upon rebooking with them. Not a great way to run a new business!!Customer service is apparently not their thing.Mind your $$$

The previous owner collected your payment by credit card and did not reimburse the new owner. All we asked you to do (there were about 8 customers in total) was cancel your original payment and repay the new owner. For this we gave you a 10% discount from your original amount for your inconvenience. Every single customer that had to... More

My suggestion is that you not book at the Perl of Sosua or any of the other properties operated by the owner of this hotel. I was, legally, but unethically, cheated out of $1000 by him. I booked the hotel and then, on the same day, had a family emergency; I requested he keep $200 or $300 of the fee,... More

Almost got it 100% correct, As the owner please note the following corrections 1) We are NOT a hotel, we are a vacation rental and most almost all vacation rental payment is required in full normally weeks before arrival. 2) Money paid to any vacation rental property is to secure that rental so the owner does NOT rent the property...
