I believe that you can find good in the worst place and bad in the best places if you look for them. That being said, let me start of by stating the good.

We just got back from 10 days at Sosua by the Sea. We've been to Sosua many times but have never stayed here before. What a great place. Big, clean, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, cheerful friendly staff and quiet peaceful surroundings. We will definitely be back. All the staff are great but we'd like to give a shout out to... More

My friend and I arrived late at night. After a long day of flying and then an almost 2 hour drive from the airport we were both looking forward to a hot shower and a cool room. Argh!!! No hot water in the shower and the air conditioner, although on, didn't send cool air out. I called the front desk... More

This hotel was recommended to us by Toni Green, a real estate agent in Las Terrenas. We drove up from Las Terrenas to visit Cabarete, Sosua, and Puerto Plata. The hotel wasn't too hard to find and it did have parking available. Lovely, older hotel but clean and comfortable. Being the low season (Sep/2013) we had no reservation and had... More

Hotel was charming, nice clean beach, staff was incredible, friendly, always bringing you drinks, offering you help. Nice quiet small resort. Buffet was good, with beautiful views, but the menu stayed the same pretty much the whole week.

Sosua by the Sea is a great resort. It's right on the coastline, so you get to enjoy the beautiful beach. The price per night is reasonable including the meals which are delicious. I look forward to staying here again.
