Nice room, resort seriously lacking.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was two parts. The part containing the master suite and full kitchen was well decorated and comfortable. The oven did not work and only 2 burners on the stove worked well enough to actually cook something. The second bedroom had some major issues. The water in the bathroom smelled like rotten eggs. It could not be turned on at any point during our stay or it would smell throughout the condo. The ceiling in the 2nd bedroom also looked to have water damage.

We did not opt for all-inclusive at this resort as other guests stated that the options were limited and lackluster. The beach was very disappointing in front of the condo. It has the large rock fixture that creates a natural pool but it stayed completely covered in seaweed. We saw someone shoveling the seaweed a few times but it remained all over the beach and in the lagoon area.

We left the resort to eat a few nights but the cab fares were $60+ dollars to go to Punta Cana. We tried to use the conceierge, Angel, to recommend some local fare but we found him to be quite rude and unhelpful.

If you are looking for a happening spot with activities, this resort is not for you. The activities "staff" did 1-2 small activities (throwing a coconut, 2 rounds of darts, etc.) per day. The pool bar closed at 6pm, the pool closed at 8pm and no entertainment happened in the evenings.

The resort is in need of some updating/repairs. We had fun and loved the things that we went off resort to see but the resort was disappointing compared to the other Al Sol resorts.

FABULOUS ACCOMADATIONS!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice Condo with all the comforts and convenience. When we got there it was later in evening and thought we would sit in the private pool and relax after a long trip. Unfortunately, someone had the temperature up so high you could cook a lobster. But it was no big deal we found the controls and and fixed that the next day and loved the convenience of the private pool. The location within the complex could not have been more perfect. We heard people complaining about noise and a few other little complaints, but we always felt like we were secluded somewhat and very quiet. If your looking for relaxation.....this is definitely the place. We were a little disappointed in the evenings as the resort does not have much for evening activities. We are not real night people but would have like the more options. The condo itself has everything you would need.

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had an beautiful stay at this condo over Christmas 2015. The condo is as beautiful as you envision from the photographs and was even decorated for Christmas with a fully adorned tree! Being on the first floor was a delight and we were able to walk easily to the pool (100 ft away) and the beach (another 50 ft further), or just lounge on the veranda. We rented a car and made trips to the grocery store, so we ate some meals at the condo, some outside the resort, and for others we purchased a la carte from the pool restaurant which was totally reasonable. It was perfect!

Sotogrande at Cap Cana is a lovely, quiet resort.

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying that the condominium was lovely and nicely appointed. However, there were problems that arose in the unit throughout the entire stay. The owner’s LACK OF RESPONSIVENESS was a huge negative. The main problem was the washer and dryer (we rented both sides of the unit so there were 2 of each in the unit)...none of them worked properly or at all, and emitted a musty smell (permeating throughout the whole unit). We had 4 children with us and had packed assuming there was working washer and dryer. We had to "borrow" towels from the hotel pool (the hotel management would not provide towels, because it was the “owner's responsibility”), and I had to hand wash and hang clothes to dry out on the unsecure deck (I am sure the other guests enjoyed seeing our socks and underwear!) I placed several emails/calls to the owner, however he never responded to me directly and they were never properly fixed. Although maintenance came to fix them on a few occasions, they failed to fix the units. Worse yet, they would not come unless we were there in the unit and we waited for the maintenance guy for hours instead of being outside enjoying the wonderful sunshine. I also asked the owner to recommend where we could go to do our laundry, but he never responded. The maid did not even show up one day without notice, and she picked the day that we ran out of toilet paper. Again we were six people, and had to take individual sheets from the pool as the hotel would not give us TP (“owner's responsibility”) and the owner refused to respond to my emails/calls.IN ADDITION, the hot tub didn't work, the maid tried to get us to pay additional amount for service, the master bathtub did not have hot water and would not drain (there was standing water in it when we arrived) and the drains in both of the master bath sinks were broken. While I wouldn't have minded a broken item or two, having to spend our vacation time waiting for maintenance crew who sometimes showed up...late...or sometimes not at all....and NEVER hearing from the owner at all was SHOCKING AND SO COMPLETELY FRUSTRATING. To this day, weeks later, the owner hasn't responded once to me, let alone apologized.The SotoGrande itself is a lovely resort...part condo, party hotel. They do offer daily "all inclusive", and if you bargain, they will discount the daily rate and allow you passes to dine at one of the marina restaurants. Hard to order/pay for anything ala carte. Having only 2 restaurants,

Owner's Response: Sotogrande is indeed a lovely, special place!. It is quiet, incredibly beautiful, with an amazing pool that ovelooks the turquoise ocean and at this time of the year it is graced with warm breezes that will make you forget the cold harsh winter. The beautiful Punta Espada golf course, the great restaurants at La Marina, the incredible Eco-Park Scape to Cap Cana add to the wonderful experience that is Cap Cana and Sotogrande. Maybe those are the reasons we have gotten such great reviews over the years. Some guests have complained in the past about minor issues but haven't bothered degrading our beautiful destination and apartment with low reviews centered on a single issue, obviating the other 99 great things about their stay and the site. Appliances break down! Unfortunately, some parts aren't available on new years eve. The problem has since been fixed. I appologize for the inconveniences this single issue caused you and hope it did not ruin all the other great things that the apartment and the location had to offer.

Amazing scape!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed for a weekend in this beautifull apartment at Cap Cana!! Tha apartment was in perfect conditions, Very cleaned, amazing decoration with a lot of details it really felt homy. We have on hand anyhing we should need during our stay and in excellent conditions. The kitchen the bathroon full equip. My best part of the apartment was laying down next to the jacussi and see the wonderfull beach view from the Terraze. I didn't want to leave. We want to come back and take this same unit but next time we want to take our kids becuase eventhough we had a romantic scape it is also very famiy oriented. We felt very secure. The resort provides also concierge service, nice pooll with beach view. You can used all the facilities of the resort.

Great option and owners are very on hand and responsible person.

I recomend renting a car so you can go take advantage of all things you can do around,

Amazing Spot!! Can't wait to come back!!

Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I, along with another couple from NC, were looking for a golf getaway retreat that would comfortably accommodate use. Our search began in VRBO and we quickly zeroed in on Sotogrande, unit 5102 to be specific. It was everything and more as advertised, 1st floor walk-out, 2 equally comfortable bedrooms, well equipped and decorated, clean and well maintained. Our rental unit was centrally located between golf courses, beach options and the Sanctuary resort. We loved it and cannot wait to return.
