Casa Marina

The place was located in a super nice part of the island, and the beach is great. The food is good, and the restaurant servers are fantastic. The lady who cleaned my room was excellent, and exceptionally nice. The problem is with the people who work the front desk. They are the rudest people I've EVER encountered in any hotel I've ever stayed at. I observed one of the front desk workers behave embarrassingly disrespectful to a guest who was checking out. This particular guest confronted the guy about his behavior, but it did no good. Almost all of the front desk staff seem to have chips on their shoulder. It was very odd.

You Get What You Pay For

The property is located near the center of town, so you do not need to deal with taxis. The private beach at the resort is beautiful. The food was average. Every night there is a pasta station, fish and chicken. Sometimes there is roast pork and once a lobster. The staff in the dining area are very nice people, but they cover multiple areas and are unclear as to who is coming or going. Two times in five days an unfinished meal was removed when I when to the bar for a drink. Also, the bar is located away from the food area. They manually poor beer and soda from bottles which may save on food cost, but they waste money on labor cost and make people wait unnecessarily. The cafeteria is needlessly inefficient. (If you bring your own large cup, they will fill). I asked to change my two times to a lower floor an was told to come back. I gave up. The neiborhood around the resort is save. If you are not to fussy about food it is OK. I would not recommend spending more than $90 US.

Average

I had a good experience for the price. The food was o.k. The pool was great, beach was really good, staff was very polite with a few exceptions. Some of the male staff needs to keep there coments to themselves and stop coming on to female visitors. The grounds were well maintained. Location was great. DOWNSIDE - Smoking..... Smoking should have designated area's not where all people are. Rooms should have a dresser or something so people can put there clothes in instead of going in and out of the suitcase everyday.

Best Value

I have been to the Casa Marina many times and always run into travelers that I had met there before. There are two beachs and it is a great place to go to chill-out. The view from the out door bars and overlooking the beach are beautiful. The staff are hard working and friendly. The town of Sosua has a lively bar scene and is walkiing distance from the hotel . For the price, this hotel is the best value.
