There are many things called SANS SOUCY in Cabarete... I stayed at the SANS SOUCY PLAYA - at the eastern edge of the town, right on the beach.
I stayed in room 17 for over a week and liked my experience for the most part. The AC worked, the mini fridge and and gaz stove were okay for my needs (bring matches!)
This room is very safe, on the 2nd floor, not 30m from the sea. One thing for sure IT IS NOISY. You hear the winds and waves constantly, and there is a disco 1km down the beach that creates an odd vibration like noise through the structure. So either you go to bed at 10:00 to be sound asleep before the music starts to get loud promptly at 11:00 or just bear through it... Frankly it's not that much of a bother.
Maid service was good, the place is very clean. But they all have the NO-SMILE gene -- they're very honest I guess! (it's odd since most locals I met were all VERY smiling and positive).
The overnight security crew (is happier!), they make you feel very safe, around the hotel complex and even on the beach at night. One has to be carefull after dark - as you should everywhere! - , but it is not a dangerous area.
Internet worked well, except in the evening hours where many seem to abuse the free wifi that actually works for about 2km from the hotel ! You can use skype on your iphone as if you are on a cellular.
Why did I leave ? Frankly I got tired of the wave noises !
And when mosquitoes started to be a botter - check your room to make sure the screens are shut properly -- I tried to get a different room but that didn't appear to be something they wanted to do, so instead I just left !!!
NOTE ON THE mosquitoes, contrary to what I'm used to in Canada, these are very small and you don't feel their sting (often on the lower leg) until you start to get a reaction. I would recommand you take something as a procaution before you get here, they are pretty much everywhere!
