I stayed at Sosua By The Sea Resort in Sosua D.R.. This resort is excellent and they are trying to distinguish themselves from the others. A small resort compared to the mega resorts in the region and this where they make their distinction. Situated right beside the water where you can experience all your meals looking over the sea as the waves crash against the rocks, a truly romantic experience. Because this is one of first resorts in the area it has survived on focusing on the guest and their stay. The food served in buffet style was truly delicious. They had plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and a variety of local dishes to tantalize every taste. An intimate bar for guests where people can chat, dance and get to know eachother from different parts of the globe. There are several areas from which to choose from to sunbathe. You can stay at the resort, or there are several beaches west and east of the resort. There is an immediate beach right next to Sosua by the Sea where the waves come and you can boogie board or body surf. Be sure to bring your swim goggles and fins as this will definitely help in the surf. Check out the public beach of Sosua, here the beach is longer and the waves a bit more gentler. However, the chairs on this beach are not free, so be prepared for that or bring a towel. Another point of
interest, I highly recommend is to head east (15 minutes) for the day to Calibrete. This place is known for its windsurfing. A steady wind, lots of restaurants, bars and a very long beach make this area not to be missed on your trip. This is where I spent New Year's Eve and did we have a blast. The beach was full of people and at midnight a small firework display.

Joe Neurauter president of the resort was a super host. His attention to detail and his concern for his guests accommodation was apparent everywhere. The staff at the resort was incredibly courteous, efficient and respectful. This is just another sign of Joe's presence and the way this resort tries to distinguish itself from others. Definitely a hands-on-type of managerial style, if Joe thinks he can get something done out of the ordinary for the guest he will try. For example, I tried
to change my ticket from Punta Cana departure to Puerta Plata, and Joe phoned on my behalf, however, the airlines would not budge on their policy.

If you are looking for a place that is clean, affordable, beautiful and a fun place to stay, don't miss this place when you are in Sosua.
