The Casa Veintiuno is one of the best places to stay in the Sosua neighbourhood. Small and quiet and run by a charming Belgian couple, Saskia and Marc, staying here is just like staying at friends' summer house. Located just acorss the road from Sosua Bay beach, the small boutique hotel is a pleasant and clean pied-à-terre to spent a couple of days before moving on to explore another area of the country. Ideal for couples and small group of friends.

    Location 4.47 /10

    The hotel is located in the small town of Sosua, a small beachside village close to Cabarete in the Puerto Plata province. Puerto Plata town is about an hour away and Cabarete, about 20 minutes. The nearest attractions are the restaurants and bars in town - although you have to be strong-willed to ignore the plethora of prostitutes that creep out after 5:00pm.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    A handy little B&B to keep up your sleeve while visiting this area of the Puerto Plata province, the Casa Veintiuno has just four rooms (so book in advance). Breakfast and Wi-Fi internet access are included in the room rates.

    Although there is a beautiful view of the beach (which is just across the street) from the upper floors, the views are not the main draw. The simple but tasteful decor of the rooms and the homely feeling are what people come here for. All rooms are spacious, bright and white with touches of colour to create a style that appeals to a European clientele. All rooms have air-conditioning, televions, DVD players and iPod docking stations. The bathrooms are equipped with showers (as opposed to bath tubs) and a few toiletries of the Hydrotherapy brand are provided .

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 2008, the hotel was originally two flats, which the owners, Saskia and Marc, have converted into a B&B. The hotel is walled in and the main door is always locked for safety. The terrace that lines the pool area in the small garden is adorned with large Klimt prints to brighten up the area. A simple but smart and contemporary little establishment, we recommend staying here when in Sosua.

    As the hotel is so small, there aren't many facilities to speak of, but the owners have made an effort to try and fit in as much as possible. Aside from the small pool out front, there is also a games room (including a large flat-screen television, pool table, a Wii, a couple of exercise machines and the largest collection of DVDs we've ever seen. For guests wishing to have a massage, Saskia has a lady on call who comes to the hotel and carries out the treatments in the rooms or out in the garden. As far as excursions go, the owners are happy to listen to guests' suggestions and sometimes take guests to explore Cabarete, which is about 20 minutes away by car.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Guests can opt to have breakfast, lunch and dinner onsite if they wish. The restaurant is however closed Mondays and Tuesdays (although breakfast is still available for guests). Guests should discuss this in advance with the owners prior to arrival, especially in low-season. The bar by the pool is open throughout the day. Marc used to be the head chef, but now a team of local chefs have continued his legacy. Guests eat at one of the tables out on the terrace that lines the pool area. Guests can also ask for room-service.

    Spa

    While there is no spa here, the owners work with a lady who can come by and carry out a massage in the rooms or garden (book at least 24 hours in advance).

    Beach 6.70 /10

    Sosua Bay beach is just across the street. The water is turquoise and the sand golden, just like on the front of postcards. Behind the beach, a row of wooden huts sell all sorts of holiday souvenirs and some have also been converted into bars and restaurants - make sure you try platters of fresh fish here. The only downside is the number of prostitutes, some under-aged, in the company of middle-aged (or older) men, both local and foreign, creating a seedy atmosphere.

    To know

    Guests should be aware that Saskia and Marc have several (very friendly) dogs, which roam free onsite.

      • Value for money 7.12
      • Location 3.0

      The Topacio Azul, one of the few resorts in Sosua, sits in a privileged spot on a low cliff looking out to Sosua Bay, a view that is easy to get lost in - until a pumping party yacht whizzes into view that is. Sosua is one of those places that could have been a quaint little village by the sea full of local charm, but instead it has given way to the darker side of hedonism. The resort itself dominates the bay and is just a few steps from Sosua Bay beach. A typical resort with fair facilities, it used to be two hotels, the Sosua Bay and Victorian House, which have now come together to form the one. Topacio Azul is a reasonable enough hotel for holidaymakers wanting to stay at an all-inclusive resort.

      Sosua by the Sea has a great location and great sea views, but it's seen its hey-day and needs a complete refurbishment. The hotel is really just a base for exploring the rest of the province, as the rooms are extremely basic and the facilities few and far between; even the pool could do with a new floor. Guests from wide-ranging backgrounds and nationalities come to stay here and the general atmosphere is generally quiet and relaxing.

      • Location 4.62

      The Piergiorgio, although still rides on its hey-day reputation, is an eerie and crumbling hotel with its beautiful location as one of the few draws. Opened back in 1997, the hotel hasn't really undergone any major works since the owner passed away although it could do with a full refit. The hotel is located in Sosua, Puerto Plata province, and it isn't on the beach although its balconies sit over the turquoise water. The rooms are a bit grim and dated.

      El Colibri is a small hotel located in the centre of Sosua. It is fair to say that the hotel has seen better days and doesn't really offer much to the guest who wants a pleasant base while on holiday. We've classed this hotel as a two-star due to its dire need of a renovation and lack of facilities and service. Although the hotel is in Sosua, the beach is a fair walk away and although the small town has lots of shops, restaurants and bars, most brim with prostitutes as soon as the clock hits 5:00pm.
