Amazing views, beautiful grounds, classic architecture. This is an older hotel, very large with many features no longer in use - multiple restaurants, roman style theatre, and watersports services. But what remains are hauntingly beautiful grounds, fabulous multilevel pool overlooking the bay which is in very nice condition and extremely clean. Situated all around the pools are areas to lounge and enjoy the views. Access to sosua beach is steps away - but many stairs down. There is at least one working elevator to beach level. We enjoyed an average sized room with a balcony boasting incredible views of the bay and the beach a comfortable king size bed, free wifi in room and lobby - which is classically beautiful, with soaring ceilings , lots of comfortable furniture , and a marvelous breeze. We also enjoyed cable TV, mini fridge and microwave.
This is a European style hotel, for those that appreciate classic beauty, attentive staff and good food on the dining room. If you are looking for bright and shiney all inclusive- not it. But I've never stayed in a more beautiful place for the money - yes, it needs love but we found it to be clean, charming, with a wonderful pool, excellent proximity to downtown Sosua shops and dining, and of course the beach. Beware the many levels and stairs, and enjoy the view and the price.
