“Coco hotel ,service with a smile”
Reviewed May 10, 2008

While I didn't actually stay at Coco Hotel this time around, I did hang out there for drinks several times, and get a tour of the place, as I most likely will be back in June .

The rooms were basic , but a good size and very clean, there was a safe deposit box and TV in all the rooms. I understand there has been considerable renovations since I was there last.

Gerry the owner, will go out of his way to make sure your stay ins enjoyable, right down to making sure there are fresh coconuts on hand for my new fav drink, Brugal and coconut water and downloading a music selection just for us!!. Great atmosphere at the bar. one big advantage over the AI's , BRUGAL is on hand ! Altagracia was our bartender at the time, and she came out to party with us out a few times . The hotel being small, it is very easy to make new friends. Request at least one meal cooked by Diego!

The hotel is ideal for single travellers, but is a comfortable and safe environment, I will be going back with my 4yr old.

Stayed November 2007

I just returned from 4 days in Sosua- March 08. I booked hotel over the telephone and was pleasantly suprised that although the start of the trip was delayed by a day due to missed connections; the owner jerry was at the airport to pick me up. This is the perfect hotel for the single traveler. Jerry the owner was great in providing the costs for goods and services as well as reccomending places to eat and daytime activities. I have stayed at lots of similar small hotels in Sosua but I will definitely be returning to Coco hotel because of the high level of service. I truly felt like I had a personal guide who made sure my stay was great and all about having fun!

if you think you are ready to try something completly different than
big and sometimes too anonymous all inclusive hotels, this small
family and friendly place is exactlly what you should go for.

jerry, the owner speaks perfect english, french and spanish (i'm sure even german and possible more), and he is smart and intelligent person, who will help you to get around, advice you depends on your interests, and you may also save some money.

his staff is a small team of wonderfull local people, begins with the cleaning lady (sorry forgot the spanish name, so i had just called her during my whole stay "signora buena"), which will take care about your room and even some laundry, continue with diego (handy man and driver), his lovely sister in the kitchen (will try her best to prepare your meal or snack exactly the way you like it), and
the girls from the bar, beautifull sandra, christina, blonde canadian girl (party animal), and a few more... (sorry about the names)....

they are all so friendly and fun (have to learn some spanish and french to be able make even more jokes with them), that you will soon feel like a VIP in this place.

the rooms are basic , but always with the warm water, and as i mentioned above daily cleaned to superior standart.

pool in the hotel is refreshing and clean as well, and almost
private and very nice beach is just behind hotel.

the centre of sosua is about 5 min. safe walk from the hotel, or a very short ride.

thanks jerry for everything

Review for Coco Hotel in Sosua, Dominican Republic


I had the tremendous good fortune of staying at the Coco Hotel in Sosua, DR for eight days in December of 2007. I was pleasantly surprised that the owner, Jerry, was willing to pick me up at the airport. He was extremely communicative and responsive while arranging my stay. Jerry is intelligent and sensitive to your needs as a traveler. You will receive as much or as little assistance as you desire.

The rooms are clean and very reasonably priced. My room had a fan, air conditioning, a security box, television and a refrigerator. The pool is well-maintained and refreshing. I recommend a dip in the pool as the stars fade to give way to the morning. Beautiful!

Beyond the wall of the hotel in the back, there lies a secluded beach that few know of and fewer frequent. It is a short walk through the tropical vegetation to your own little paradise. The main beach in town is a short walk or motoconcho (motorcycle taxi) away. The town center precedes the beach. A casino that stays open until 5:00 AM is on the same street as the hotel, a short walk away as well.

The bar in the hotel is well stocked with your favorite drinks, music, a TV and an internet connection. Wi-Fi is available. You may choose to include your meals in the payment for your room if you wish.

The nightlife in Sosua never stops. The discotecas in town go until about 3:00 AM and then you can go to the Casino discoteca floor. Reggaeton, Bachata, Salsa and Merengue pulse through the night.

I would return to Coco Hotel in a heartbeat. Great place, great people! Thanks for the great stay, Jerry.
