Discover one of the most popular residential communities located within a five minute walk to the heart of town, yet secluded in a countryside atmosphere setting. Our beautiful, newly constructed villa is situated on the exquisite Residencial Hispaniola in Sosua, Province of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Residencial Hispaniola Villa #8 offers a perfect location with direct connection to the downtown area and, therefore, Sosua's tourist center. Stores, international supermarkets, pharmacies, medical services, restaurants, and last but not least, beautiful Sosua Bay - whatever your heart desires lies within walking distance! Thanks to the proximity to the center of town and the public transportation, which is within easy reach, a rented vehicle is not an absolute necessity.

Disappointed but made the most of our month

  • 3 of 5

The location and security were good, as were the daily maid service and gardener. There was always a fresh bottle of water for the dispenser. The layout of the house works well and the pool was used daily. It is close to the supermarket (and a couple others too) and all the taxis know how to find you.

There were numerous deficiencies and it took us over 2 weeks to get some things fixed. We would have preferred to have decent amenities, especially the fridge. They finally fixed the barbecue but a number of things still weren't done by the time we left.

Not all of their photos are accurate. Some of the furniture is missing.

We were looking forward to "The community also has its own private beach less than a 5 minute drive away." but that is untrue. To access this beach costs $50 per day payable to the hotel. There is no arrangement.

We do have good memories but there were some challenges we weren't expecting.

Short of luxury

  • 3 of 5

A very convenient and quiet location but it fell short of my definition of luxury. The kitchen was under-equipped: no suitable knives, one wine glass, mismatched dishware, and the fridge froze food even when the temperature was reduced. There was no usable BBQ which I do understand was subsequently repaired. The BBQ is on the ground level where after dark there is no suitable light so be prepared with a flashlight to see what you are cooking. The pool area has three lounge chairs, all showing signs of mildew. If guests exceed three people, someone will go without. A simple water and bleach solution used occasionally on the chairs would remedy the mildew issue. The pool was well maintained with daily cleaning. The house includes a room for the grounds keeper and supplies as well as a laundry and clothesline that maids use for for laundry from other properties, meaning these staff are frequently walking around the property throughout the day. Not exactly private.

not as advertized

  • 3 of 5

Had termites in headboard which crawled a over the person for 3 nites. Rented for 5 people and only pool furniture for 3. BBQ was rusted right through. Definitely not luxury. Missing lots of kitchen tools. Even had to buy knifes

Owner's Response: From a management perspective we don’t like to hear you were not 100% satisfied with your stay. This is highly uncharacteristic for our properties; we have a proven track record with numerous reviews to corroborate the positive/exceptional experiences from other guests. We always strive to exceed expectations, however sometimes as many of us do, we fell short. For that we are sorry that your experience was not the stellar one we all had hoped. As you stated there were many things you enjoyed about your experience; therefore, your entire trip was not unpleasant! In an effort to satisfy your request, we happily refunded a portion of your payment, quickly responded to all of your concerns and had onsite staff to assist you.

Safe , quiet place , nice people we had a few problems .

  • 2 of 5

The complex is nice , flowers beautiful , the staff very nice . The" Luxury Villa" was not what we expected ,the furniture is nice , pool great , five adults booked in only three lounges , for a two week stay 2 people were always switching not great for visiting . The water cooler leaked & was replaced by the management of the complex ( a loaner ) Thanks Delphenia ! The barbecue is rusted right out , we couldn't use it at all ! We had some other problems which the owner gave us back 2 nights worth of money , so I'll not mention them . It was stranger to see armed guards every where , at the villa complex , at the food stores etc. Not used to that in Canada ! Hope they fix their problems and it'll be a beautiful little get away .

CHARMING SMALL VILLA PERFECTLY LOCATED

  • 4 of 5

We took some French friends on a bit of a driving trip through the DR and spent two nights here. We enjoyed the house very much. It is VERY close to the gate of the gated community but no so close that there are any annoyances. Just means it's quicker and easier to get to the beach or into town.

The house is well and comfortably furnished. We made a grilled langoustine dinner the second night and the kitchen had everything we needed.

The pool is inviting and nicely screened with vegetation from other homes. From the patio there is even a sliver of ocean view. "Pretty sweet", as my nephew would say.

We ate a meal at Carpe Diem, the French restaurant on the main strip and the food was TRULY well and thoughtfully prepared. The real deal. (The strutting and posing "professional ladies" in town can be a nuisance - depending upon your point of view, I suppose...)

If you're going to Sosua - and it does have its charms and a fairly interesting history - then I can wholeheartedly recommend staying at Residential Hispaniola Villa 8. We felt safe and comfortable and the staff - from manager to gatekeeper to maid - were all extremely friendly and helpful.
