We stayed here last year, and have happily returned. For us, it is the right combination.
(see my last year's post.. “We give it 5 out of 5, because we had a great time.”).
Before you come, call ahead and get the Resort to arrange for a Taxi from the Airport. Pablo will answer and speaks English. Give him your time and flight number. It is a $30US ride. Tell him you want to stop at the Playero (the largest supermarket in Sosua). Get all your groceries there, they will wait for you. We give an extra tip for this.
At the resort, after you check in, men will carry your suitcase up to your room. You should carry enough US$ for this too.
We cook in the room every day. (bring a sharp knife)
We arrive in Oct. and leave in Dec. and take a 3rd floor room. There is a breeze most nights, so we sleep comfortably with sheets. All rooms have a ceiling fan and this unit came with 2 floor fans (which we never use).
About water... walk to the sister resort Coconut Groves. There is a very small store that sells 20L of water for 50Pesos ($1.30) and deposit of 200Pesos.
The free WiFi is located in the Games room and is strongest near the Office. On Friday (Nov. 2) they installed 2nd free WiFi at the bar, so now you can Sip-n-Surf.
The Resort offers daily free shuttle to Cabarete or you can take a Carro to town for a 50Pesos for two.
The rooms are clean, clean, clean.
The Resort is clean, clean, clean.
The staff is friendly. Many speak English.
(and) Timeshare resorts have Timeshare Salesman.... that's just the way it is.
As always, do your research and make sure it is right for you.
