El Neptuno is an 18 apartment condominium located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood 2 blocks from Sosua Beach and the center of town. The administrator is the best on the North Coast and our rules are enforced to ensure all the owners and renters enjoy being here. We are gated and have a night watchman to ensure security on the property.
If the apartment shown here is not available, equally desirable apartments are available and the administrator will send you photos so you can see the apartment before booking.
Sosua beach is a 5-10 minute walk, as is the center of Sosua, including restaurants, bars, and a small supermarket. A much larger version of the supermarket is a few minutes further.
Also, even closer, are a casino, full gym, and a disco.
You can easily enjoy a vacation at El Neptuno without need of a car.
For excursions, taxis are available as well as very inexpensive public transportation. Using public transportation you can go to nearby Cabarete for kiteboarding and windsurfing for less than a US dollar and to Puerto Plata for a US dollar. If you prefer a taxi, which charges based on destination, not number of passengers, drivers speaking English and Spanish are available.
The apartment, like all the others, has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of which is in the master suite. Both bathrooms have a shower. We have Wi-Fi in all apartments as well as in the pool area. The bedrooms are air conditioned and have a ceiling fan. There is also a ceiling fan in the living room, and off the living room is a large balcony.

BUT no sleep..because of slatted type windows...ie noise insulation NIL...so you heard every vehicle coming and going, especially motorbikes... or owls/pigeons hooting through out the night...alternating with several dogs barking throughout the day and night. six nights no sleep...horrendous place. never saw the person I made the actual original booking with,..FABIO. ant infestation in the kitchen. avoid like the plague this place
