All Inclusive resort is a JEWEL in Sosua! It has it's own private beach, chairs provided. All meals and drinks! Very good for rest and relaxation! The staff is very kind and it is a clean place! I can't wait to go here again!

We didn't know what to expect but got lots of advice from others - don't leave the resort, don't eat the ketchup, etc. I was blown away by the beauty of the place as soon as we arrived.
