“Very friendly, clean, close to center of town”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

The good:
1. Staff was very helpful, friendly, sincere.
2. Rooms were very clean, white linens, large, balconies, safes in room, air conditioned.
3. Food was pretty good. Coffee was great.
4. Drinks were strong (maybe too strong).
5. Close to town - you can walk to night life which is ok, but good for people watching.
6. Can walk to 1 of 2 beaches.
7. $$ not bad per person.

The bad:
1. Cleaning staff, although very nice, are very loud, shouting down the hall at each other. It made napping impossible.
2. The men who go to Sosua for sex can unfortunately make you a little sick because if you have the misfortune to be located near them you hear them being disgusting all night long.
3. While the staff is super nice, I got the feeling that there are sankies (do a google search) there. Basically they are resort workers who prey on foreigners who appear to be easier targets because they are single and may be susceptible to romance. Being single myself, I was targeted but I knew what was going on so I just enjoyed the extra attention. So just be aware. If someone calls you "his love", is half your age (ha ha), wishes you felt for him what he feels for you (the guilt card), and so on, it's a scam. They won't ask for money, they may ask for sex, but the long term goal is to have a multi-year friendship/romance that will produce you volunteering to offer gifts of money when he or his family run into various struggles. Seems pretty obvious that this would be easy to spot, but when one is on vacation, it's very easy to overlook the obvious. ;-)
4. I thought the food was overpriced.

But, all in all, a decent place with really nice staff.

I went for a 3 nights stay with friends last april. We stayed in a 2 double beds room, very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was ample and clean and had hot water.

Maid service was good and efficient. Front desk was very corteous and efficient too, specially Wellington and a peruvian guy. Poolside bar had good drinks at very good prices, they even had a happy hour 2x1 in drinks.

Breakfast was very good but only limited to 3-4 choices. Even though it was very complete.

Sosua beach is like a 10 minute walk, very beautiful but lots of street vendors. You can rent a beach chair and umbrella.

Location of the hotel is centric and close to many restaurants, bars, grocery stores and gift shops in Sosua town.

Parking is limited but good. Room was ample as well, beds are very comfortable, there is complimentary wi-fi. A/C was good and there was also a ventilator in the room.

Pool area was very nice and clean with very nice landscaping.

I liked my stay very much and i am willing to come back next time. This is a very beautiful small hotel and i can recommend it to everyone.

Enjoy!

Nice, clean small Resort with excellent Location to all the Actions Sosua has to offer. The Owners and Staff very friendly and helpfull. Young talented Dominican Chef with great knowledge of Food Presentation and International cooking. However to my Surprise; Local Fare OK but not Great. Free Breakfast is very good, but little Choices, if you stay fo several days. For good Wifi choose Building A for less noise at night choose B. Deffently will stay at the same Hotel on my next Trip

There is nothing outstanding about this hotel - but there is nothing wrong with it either. We were here for seven nights. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean, but no bottled water was furnished - we went to the nearby super market and bought enough for brushing teeth and drinking...much less expensive. The breakfasts were good, but the choice is limited. The menu lists eight breakfasts for the same price, but the menu for the guests' free breakfasts lists only four of them. Go figure. The pool area is comfortable. The location is within easy walking distance to all of the "action" spots. The staff is helpful and firendly. All in all, a good experience.

I stayed at Terra Linda hotel in May. Good location central Sosua, rooms were recently
remodeled-very nice. Pool area very large and quiet. Complimentary breakfast each morning was good-had a choice of 5-6 items. Ate at restaurant also for dinner-steak and lobster was great. Was hoping on staying there again next month but rates were $25 higher-opted for another property.
