Condo is spacious and clean, with private pool for each complex. Rented from private realtor, a fellow Canadien. Talking to other residents in complex who rented from the company, Sosua Village, I got taken to the Bank. The condos are all the same layout, with the same amenities, but I paid almost twice the amount from 5 weeks that people are paying for a month...sort of puts a damper on vacation. The ocean is close by ,but no beach access...the beach is in Sosua, about two miles away. Taxis are very expensive...to Sosua and back can put you back 25 dollars Cad. I feel safe in gated community...people are friendly, but have run into some language barriers with taxi drivers etc. Lots of restaurants to choose from...groceries are expensive compared to other tropical places, such as Mexico. If you want a quiet vacation, this is a very nice spot for some down time.
I arrived at the resort and was very pleased. the place is beautiful and the condo was very comfortable and just what I needed. the grounds are very well maintained and place was very well secured. The community pool and health Club were extremely nice and the restaurant has a wonderful view of the ocean. It was very romantic and I'll never forget it. I only with I could have stayed longer.
I was very nervous about booking a rental for the first time, as I have heard horror stories about doing so. This condo was anything but. When you first walk in the door you realize the grandness of the condo when all the rooms (including the walking in closest), besides the hallway have exposed beam vaulted ceilings. We were happily surprised when we found a washer and drier in the hall closest, along with cleaning supplies, fresh towels and linens. The condo was decorated beautifully and included all the cooking ware and place settings. They also left us a loaner phone so we were able to make local phone calls and the wifi worked pretty well.
The driver Coco picked us up for the airport and was waiting for us with a sign. He took us to the supermarket before taking us to the condo so we were able to get food for that night. We rented a car for 4 days from the owner of the condo and he dropped it off the next day for us.
Our favourite part of the condo was the balcony. There was a little one off of the master bedroom, one off the dinning room and a large one with seating off the living area and it had french doors into the dinning area. The pool was not busy, most of the time it was only us in it.
Overall, we loved our stay and we found it so much better than staying at a resort. We are already looking forward to coming back.
