The Sosua Bay Hotel has a great location, immediately adjacent to the famed Playa de Sosua, although access to the beach is rather circuitous. Ocean-side rooms have a charming view of beautiful Sosua Bay and the beach; one could sit on the balcony and admire the shades of turqoise and azure in the water all afternoon. The rooms themselves are basic but clean and adequate. The bed is comfortable, there is a mini-fridge, and both the air-conditioner and the television work (although my remote control did not). It would be nice to have a ceiling fan over the bed, instead of having to rely on the A/C fan during the night. There is plenty of closet space and a large chest of drawers. My bathroom was spacious and there is plenty of really hot water, although there was no stopper for the sink drain (a common problem in DR hotels). The bathtub drain had a stopper, however, and the shower worked well. I was only there for 2 days, but during that time there were 3 power outages, 2 of them lasting over 20 minutes. The buffet restaurant takes full advantage of the beautiful view, but the food lacks the extensive variety one finds at the nearby Casa Marina resort, for example. The veggies were well prepared, but the beef was leathery, and the squid rubbery; of the meats, only the fish filets were a pleasure to eat. A lot of organized activities are scheduled every day, but I saw little evidence of much actually happening, perhaps because too few guests showed up. There always seemed to be more hotel staff around than guests.
