I had debated about this property but after reading others reviews decided to spend two weeks at the Coco. The owner Shelley and her son Ian picked me up at the airport for $15 and this is a very good deal, taxis charge at least $25. Both Shelley and Ian explained some things about Sousa to me on the ride to the Coco. They were both very helpful to me my entire two week stay. Shelley would ask me if I needed anything at the store if she was going and gave me a ride a couple of times. Bernie works at the Coco and is an all around guy and seems to be able to do anything. I would recommend making contact with him as he has many funny stories! The Coco is not right in the hub of things but this also makes for a more peaceful stay. The highlight of the Coco is that the beach is short stroll away and there is a reef to snorkel. The beach is also very scenic and quite with few people using it so much better than the main beach in Sosua with no vendors trying to sell you something. One of the main reasons I chose the Coco is because I do not speak Spanish and I knew that it was Canadian owned thus someone there would speak English. Ian also contacted a tour operator for me and the guy came to the hotel and I made my choices for excursions. The buses picked me up at the Coco. If you like to snorkel take the Paradise Island Excursion the best! If I am ever back in Sosua I would stay at the Coco again.
