Mary Rose Condo Apartments
Ranked #4 of 40 Specialty Lodging in Sosua
Reviewed November 12, 2012

It's difficult to share this Caribbean gem and tell the world about a small property that is truly delightful from the moment you check in until you tearfully say goodbye. I can see why patrons stay for 2-3-4 weeks or longer and make their return reservations before they leave the property. I didn't want to get on the plane to go home!

Mary Rose is the perfect get away for families, couples or singles looking to enjoy a quiet, well maintained and safe property within a few blocks of the city. Each apartment has a full kitchen with cooking and eating utensils, a flat screen TV in the living room, a clean modern bathroom and enough storage to accommodate a longer stay. The apartments surround a garden like common area that includes a swimming pool, hot tub and a small bar area that is open in the evenings to patrons staying at the Mary Rose.

As much as I loved the property, it was the down home feel and nightly chats with the other patrons that truly made this feel like my second home. Owner, Colin Williamson has created a community atmosphere that embraces you whether you are there for a few days or a few months. Whether you are grilling something for dinner or enjoying movie night at the pool, you'll feel right at home at the Mary Rose.

I'm booking my next trip as soon as possible!

Room Tip: Some apartments are on a 2nd level, let them know at the time of booking if that will be a problem f...

Once again, we had a great stay at Mary Rose! Staff was great, clean rooms and with a small grocery store across the street, it can't be any better. It is quiet, yet close enought to walk to downtown.

We will be back in the spring!!

Stayed two weeks at Mary Rose and it was one of the most relaxing holidays I ever had. Mary Rose is a quiet, clean and comfortable place, far enough outside of the town center to avoid the nightly high life in Sosua but still near enough to everything you need or want (only 10 minutes walk or 1 minute motoconcho ride to Sosua Beach). Colin and Jose are great hosts, willing to go the extra mile to make a guest happy. I'll definitely be back next time I go to the Dominican Republic.

Booked myself an 3 week stay at Mary Rose and it was great!
The condo was very nice with all the modern conveniences you would need to for an comfortable stay. (good A/C, very clean, nice equiped kitchen, flatscreen, good wifi, etc)
The place is located just outside the madness of downtown Sosua : ) 10 min walk, so during the night nice and quiet for an good sleep.
Also nice pool and the tropical garden gives an nice touch to the place.
Great value for money! and no suprise bills for like rental of an safe or something.

Colin the owner is a really nice guy, he and his crew are really friendly and helpfull.
Pls make sure you also get some drinks from Jimmy the topless bartender : )
One warning, don't end up shooting pool with Colin (He cheets hahahahaha)

Overall i had an really good time in Mary Rose and if i will go to Sosua again i will defenitly know where to stay!

P.S special thanks to team Iceland (whats up guys)!

Best regards,

Hildo

While this was not my first trip to the Domincan Republic, it was my first where I stayed in a larger town (Sosua) and thus my first at the Mary Rose. I became familiar with the Mary Rose by virtue of my use of Northern Coast Diving in Sosua (also reviewed by me) so I was inclined to try it. The Mary Rose met my expectations and then some.

The hotel has approximately 12 rooms on two floors. All rooms overlook a courtyard containing a pool and a whirlpool tub. There are cooking facilities in the room but I chose to eat out for all my meals. There is a flat screen television in each room with a cable hookup that has a wide variety of US, European and Caribbean/Latin American channels. Since I'm a diver, it was a nice 10-15 minute walk to the dive shop. At the Mary Rose you're close enough to Sosua's restaurant/clubb area (Avenida Pedro Clisante) but far enough away to not hear it at night.

Colin Williamson, the owner, is a very friendly fellow who easily mingles with the guests. During the week I was there the guests included several folks from Iceland along with some other Americans and I think some British folks. The pool is well maintained and good for either swimming or just lounging in the water. There is a Dominican grocery store about 300 feet down the street from the hotel.

The rates at the Mary Rose are very attractive and a real value considering the accomodations. I had plenty of room and was able to dry my scuba gear so that I could fly home. Colin will pick up guests at the airport in Puerto Plata and help with arrangements to get back to the airport if necessary.

If you're looking for a quiet place to stay in Sosua, this is the place.

I went for the first time to Sosua, DR with a friend and decided to book with Mary Rose Condos. As soon as we arrived I knew it was going to be a great stay. Located about half a mile from the main downtown and strip area was no problem. Nice little market is located 200 ft down the street for all your basic vacation needs. Beautiful small beach located in the area, about 10 walk or 3 minute taxi ride. Motorcycle taxis are only $50 pesos. The 2 bedroom condo was very clean. Hot water. A/C available. WiFi works great all around the area. Refrigerator, stove, kitchen, maid and laundry service was very efficient. Collin, Jose, Rick and Jimmy make your stay as relaxed and easy as possible with no hassles. Jimmy operates a nice little bar and will provide drinks and great conversations. These great people make you feel welcome and will help with any questions or problems you might have. Pool was kept in excellent condition, very clean establishment all around. We stayed for 8 days and if I could I would have stayed another 8 days at Mary Rose Condos.
