The worse

This was my third time in The Dominican Republic and by far this was the worse vacation in that country that I have yet to experience. If you are traveling with your family, please go to another city like Puerto Plata or Punta Cana. Sousa is a place for single men looking to have a good time. The Hotel itself was terrible, the food, or lack there of, was appalling. The waiters acted as if you were bothering them when requesting an “all inclusive” service. They did not even supply the rooms with bottled water on a daily basis.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk into town for a once in a lifetime nightlife experiences. Bars don't close until 4 am. Sosua is alot of fun. I didn't have any problems. Police are everywhere to watch out for your safety.

If you like that sort of thing

I chose the hotel based on other reviews on various websites. I was looking for something more tranquil than the usual all-inclusives. From the reviews, I'm guessing that the hotel has its fans. I was put off immediately upon entering my room and seeing bits of the ceiling and wall plaster sprinkled at random intervals, the lack of window screens, and only half of the lights working. The property is very basic, adequate for the price, and a good location for access to restaurants and shops around the town. Most importantly, it's NOT on a beautiful beach. The beach is completely washed out and the hotel is nestled on an outcropping of rocky crags with only very small patches of access to the water.
