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

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 $$$

Came down from NYC on a quick 4 day scuba trip. As usual the apartment rental was great. A short walk to the scuba shop on the beach. Met some cool people staying there also. Always laid back. My friend rented apartment 8 which is huge with 2 entrances. My favorite is 9 with its large terrace. Can't wait 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...

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. I arrived at the gates of this establishment around 9:30 p.m. after a 4 hour bus ride from Santo Domingo. There was no one on duty to let me in.The last... More
