This hotel while not particularly fancy offered many little extras I really enjoyed. Sunday evening local artisans displayed their wears, while i don't often buy trinkets, I noticed that some of the dolls were faceless.. So I asked the vendor " why ? His reply was something I never forgot.. My country has been ruled by so many countries and... More

Stayed with my husband for 3 days (had to leave early for family emergency) Even thought we only stayed a short time in DR it was nice. The Resort: Super close to airport (15min). It is located right off the main road, so locals can come into the resort quite easily. Just keep this in mind when you leave your... More

Quite a nice small resort with a good animation team, friendly staff, quite ok restaurants, and an ok schedule of activities. I was here in 2011 with a buddy and we had a great time. The resort is just a few hundred meters away from the small village center. O would recommend this resort to anyone visiting sosua

I should have heeded the reviews on here. This property is bottom of the barrel, and well deserves it's 29 out of 32 status. Biggest cockroaches I've ever seen. Run down rooms. More like a 1 star or 2 star at best. I think the TripAdvisor reviewers who give this place more than 2 stars are either delusional and very... More

Having just arrived back from our two week stay at the Casa Marina Reef\Beach, I found September was not a good time to visit, this is based on, that we have been going to the Reef over 14 times in a 10 year period, staying most times in February just as we did in February 2014.

All the shops, beaches bars and night life are within walking distance. Also located between Puerto Plata and Cabarete so gives you the choice to go out and explore different towns and nightlife's of the Dominican Republic. Staff in the hotel are also very friendly.
