I stayed at New Garden Hotel in the middle of July 2013. This was just a couple months after my first stay there. Not a lot has changed since my last review. The service is still great. The staff is super friendly and the rooms were up to par. My only two complaints this time around was that the WiFi was constantly in and out and the early morning construction on the top floor. The WiFi wasn't a huge deal, because I didn't rely on it that much during my stay, but if I did need it, it would have been a big issue for me. Fortunately, they fixed the issue a couple days before I checked out. I'm gonna have to say that Wifi, in Sosua period, isn't all that great. This goes for in the hotels and in nearby restaurants who offer it. So, if you rely on internet heavily, your chances are gonna be hit or miss no matter where you stay in Sosua. Finally, there was the construction that was going on the top floor. The noise was unbearable in the morning. I'm not very fussy when it comes to noise, but some mornings were really bad, especially when you had a long night of partying and wanted to try to sleep in and reenergize yourself for the following day. I was wondering why NO ONE at the hotel even bothered to mention that the hotel was under construction via email or when you pay for your rooms. That's something that can totally ruin the experience for some people. Hopefully, it won't be going on for much longer, because I still plan on coming back in a few months. Other than that, everything was on point. The hot water, A/C, TV and safes still worked. Plus, the ladies in the lobby were still friendly, but not too friendly. I'll be back at New Garden for sure.
