I;ve visited this hotel on several trips but this tear it seems like the management has has work to do on this property ; my room on my up grade was suppose to have a mini fridge in it but had none and I was told by my my noiltour rep there that this hotel has not had any fridges for a at least 3 years ; my a/c kept turning off on its own even though I had my key card reprogrammed several times ; the food there was mediocre some days good but lots of days the beef was tough and so was the pork ; everything is fried in the same oil or grease so after awhile everything tastes the same ; they did have very good breakfast but lots of times the home fries were way under cooked ; the grounds were well kept but there were never enough chaise lounges at pool side or on the area facing the ocean and at alot were broken ; there was the odd chica there with older men but I heard they somehow bring them in by paying someone off they did not bother me so that's no issue with me ; there was a very distributing or should I say disgusting guest that I seen sunning himself by the ocean side wearing a outdated speedo type of bathing suit that was most likely worn out as that persons private areas were in plain view for all to see ; this man even sunbathed naked on his lounge chair or if he got up pulled his shorts up and everything just hung out for all to see ; there were children at this resort so finally I reported him to security ; other guests that I talked to also said that this gentleman practiced no sense of common decency being that he looked like he was in his late 60's ; security did show up after taking a picture of him and told him to cover up or leave ; they said they could charge this person with nudity in public but that I had to be a witness but I was leaving the next day ; this offensive gentleman if I could call him that ;got very lucky that I never reported him at the beginning of my week there or he 'd still be sitting in a Dominican jail ; topless is tolerated in the dominican but compete nudity is not nor is bathing trunks that reveal private areas ;that was my most disgusting part of my vacation at casa marina resort all other guest were well attired except this one old guy that who knows who he was trying to impress ;in previous years this resort used brugal run in their drinks but now they used a cheaper rum that always left a bitter taste in my mouth ;also the staff took your towels away in the morning so u could not shower at lets say noon with any towels available till after 3 pm ;the only saving grace for this hotel is that it is right in sosua so if you not like the food there are lots of in expensive places to go to eat and drink with in walking distance and its safe to walk any place in sosua ; yes I have complained about the food but a couple times both me and my friends bit into a hamburger or sausage and nearly chipped a tooth hitting something real hard in it ;some people complained in here of hawkers bothering them at sosua beach but here its the same with the stands just by the amphitheater trying to sell u over priced merchandize or phony cigars we were told by our tour rep that the hotel charges these merchants a fee to sell on their premises for guests that never leave the resort but that alot of things like cigars are not good quality here ; and you should stay clear of them ; if anyone wants to buy a good cigar you should go to cafe cubanna down town sosua for the real thing ;
