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!

made it their home, but at 60 years of age, ...
This was both mine and my Husband's first time out of the Country. It was a somewhat spur decision, having found a good deal a month before and deciding to do it. 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. The Airport was a little unnerving, being hustled through customs with a lot of ...
