I had a great stay at Los Balcones once again.
It was my second stay at the place in 2017. In addition to what I wrote in my previous review in March, I was pleasantly surprised by freshly painted walls and new furniture in the living room as well as renovated condo common area, pool and Jacuzzi. Another advancement was a faster beach access due to sand build-up, the stairs from condo to the ocean that used to end in the ocean now give a more direct sandy beach access, just 50 meters, three times shorter than before. The price is too good for this place.
Highly recommend. I can't wait to visit again.
This condo is clean, safe, close to everything, and very peaceful for its location in Sosua. Michael and Sasha were so helpful I needed a car to rent and they told me where to go before I even arrived. The sunsets by the pool are amazing and the steps carved out of the rock that lead you down to the beach in the morning are full of tiny hermit crabs Wow! Most of the guest we saw were older and friendly, the staff like the security and grounds keeping are very helpful as well. We would like to book again in December this place wont disappoint its truly a Gem in Sosua.
If you see a young security guard at nite named Feliz he is so friendly and helpful please tell him the Green Family said " Hello".
Had a brief stay here and found it to be conveniently located at both the beach and the city center. This condo offers a very quiet environment with a beautiful balcony view of the Atlantic Ocean. It was exactly like advertised with a well equipped kitchen and groceries close by, the walls need some fresh paint here and there. All in all very nice place for the money.
What I did not like, a few minor things: some bathroom fixtures dislocated, ground floor apartment, so a bit more noise than an upper level apartment. What I liked: Very nice layout with decent view of ocean. Nice furniture, including balcony furniture of loveseat, coffee table and two chairs. Decent-sized balcony. I left balcony doors open all night and had no problems. Balcony is nicely designed so that you aren’t staring at people on other balconies. A couple of flies but no mosquitoes. Regular coffee maker and Italian-style 2-cup stove-top coffee maker also. Pretty complete range of pots/pans/dishware/glasses, and corkscrew. Bottled water and stand and property manager checked to ensure there was a full bottle (property mgr was good). Good supply of towels, and washer/dryer in the apartment. Free/easy parking. Friendly security guards. Excellent access to beach next door and Atlantic Ocean waves crashing as you fall asleep. Easy walking distance to downtown, supermarkets, main Sosua beach (different beach). Microwave, range with oven. Full size refrigerator which makes decent ice. Would definitely stay here again if by myself.Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
A great getaway for a family vacation. This clean and beautiful condo is steps from the beach and a short walk to near by shops and restaurants. The area is very quiet and safe both within the grounds and in the surrounding town. The booking was very professional. Highly recommended.
