Websites like Trip Advisor can provide a lot of reviews on any of these hotels, but beware that some can be biased to increase or decrease a hotel`s popularity. The best way to tell if a place is good or not is to talk directly to people via the forum or private message ( fake reviewers hardly stay online after posting ).
Bachelor parties in Sosua can be noisy, so it`s much better to consider a private rental such as a villa, with prices starting as low as $180.00 per day for a 2-bedroom unit. The private swimming pool is a blessing when traveling with groups of friends, not to mention having the entire place to themselves. There`s also 6-10 bedroom units.
SOSUA HOTEL UPDATES
Among the important changes of the past few years are the closing of Piergiorgio, due to management changes. Casa Cayena was totally remodeled and reopened with the name Playa Alicia. Casa Colibri also was completely renovated, will be reopening soon as a private rental. Don Antonio underwent serious renovations and now it`s called Las Palmeras. Perla de Sosua has new management following the tragic loss of Brent Lewis, its former owner and a dear friend to us.
The top 5 hotels in Sosua should of course be ranked based on location, size and service level. In the hospitality industry the system is based on stars, 1-4 and the higher the better. In Today`s world, social networks are playing a key role empowering customers, so be sure to check the regular Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and Pinterest posts from the hotels you plan to visit. Fresh content makes a huge difference than just seeing photos taken years ago.
Reviews also help, although people should beware of fake ones. Sometimes no reviews are better than too good, fake ones. In the real world, most travelers do not post reviews unless those are negative, let`s face it. Hotels take time and effort trying to get people to post, as most will hardly take time to write good stuff. In our opinion, the top 5 hotels in Sosua should be:
- Casa Marina
- Sosua By The Sea
- Terra Linda
Those are also the biggest size ones, as we prefer to compare by size first. Places like Las Palmeras, Sosua Inn, Alicia Beach Hotel, Casa Valeria and El Rancho compete in a smaller category, but offer very good service at decent rates. The alternative are private villa rentals, it all depends on what the traveler needs are.
