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...

We stayed there for 5 nights in January 2013 and were very happy about it. We stayed at four different guest-houses during our island hopping this winter and the Perla was good like any of the others. I was a little worried after reading the earlier reviews but we had nothing to complain about. After reading all the owners, Brents,... More

Apartment 9 was amazing. 1 bedroom (larger then some of my friends places in Manhattan) and a huge balcony. We nick named it "the veranda". Router was on the balcony so mornings we'd meet... More

I booked my stay at the Perla mid April 2013 despite several negative reviews commented on tripadvisor. Turned out I had the exact same experience that others complained about.

The price does not reflect the quality of this hotel. Furnishings and my room were minimal standard. There is hot water and a refrigerator but the interior of the room definitely needs a makeover. Good feature is the property is gated and guests are given an access key. The place is generally acceptable for the non discriminating person but overpriced... More
