I have a broom / dustpan should you wish to do your cleaning instead of paying housekeeping to clean your room. A clothes stand to hang your beach swimwear or beach towels to dry is on your balcony. Do not take the white room towels to the beach as they may get stained and you will be charged accordingly if they are stained and cannot be used for the next guests.

Location is just a few steps from Pubs, restaurants, shops, rental cars & bicycles, banks, dive and fishing gear, para sailing & water sports. Beauty & Facial parlors. Indoor/outdoor coffee & breakfast shops. There are 2 lovely beaches called Playa Alicia and Playa Sosua within a 5-10 minutes walk. I highly recommend the hotel restaurant and also the Hotel bar outside of the lobby is full of life and very vibrant thanks to the friendly hotel staff. Walk down Pedro Clisante and you will find other restaurant, shops, bars and cafes.
Shopping, dining, bars, clubs, beaches and entertainment are just a few things that are just around the corner. The walk from the apartment to the beach down Pedro Clisante is a colorful introduction to the DR culture and you will find virtually anything you need from the mini mart around the corner. From local food to international restaurants (Italian, Chinese and a British Pub to name a few), you can enjoy a diverse cuisine. Once you get to the end of Pedro Clisante, there are a stretch of local shops that lead up to the beach.
On Playa Sosua, the shopping continues with dozens of dining and retail establishments located right on the beach. If you are looking for a quieter beach experience, head over to Playa Alicia at the end of Calle Dr. Rosen. At the end of the day, the party shifts to Pedro Clisante where you can walk around at night. As with any place you would visit, use common sense, and you'll have a great time.
The town is relatively small and easily walkable. You can also get around using the motoconcho, where you are basically hitching a ride on the back of someone's motorcycle. The price within the El Batey area of Sosua is approx 50 pesos, though you will certainly be quoted more if you ask them first hand. Simply tell the driver where you want to go, hop on, and hand the driver the exact fare when you arrive at your destination and walk away. The motoconcho drivers are everywhere and will actively solicit you for a ride. Do not hop a concho while you are intoxicated, medically unfit or have dizzy spells.
The cheapest way to move between Sosua and the surrounding cities and towns of Puerto Plata, Cabarete and Rio San Juan, as well as the tourist resorts in between, is by guagua (Caribbean Spanish slang for bus), which are small mini-vans operating on the main highway between Puerto Plata and Rio San Juan. At peak hours they pass every five or ten minutes. Short distances (i.e., Sosua to Cabarete) should cost no more than 30 pesos to Cabarete, to 40 pesos to Puerto Plata. They will pack in up to twenty-five people per mini-van (this is not an exaggeration!), with passengers almost in each other's laps. You may even have someone's cage of roosters deposited on your lap.
If you'd like a less colorful option, tourist taxis are plentiful but expensive when compared to the guagua or motoconchos in Sosua. Should you arrive by bus from Santiago, tourist taxi from Caribe Tours bus station to El Batey is around 150 pesos. A taxi from Sosua to Puerto Plata airport will charge $25US for the car; however, many taxi drivers will attempt quote $25US per person, so be aware.
The nearest taxi stand is at the corner of Calle Pedro Clisante and Calle Dr. Rosin, however, finding a taxi or motoconcho anywhere along Pedro Clisante is easy to do.
You will pay about $15US from Sosua to Cabarete; however, if you wish to be adventurous saving lots of money, you can take a guagua for about 25 pesos per person. Guaguas run through the main road (Rt. 5), which is about 1 block south of Pedro Clisante. You have to flag them down so they will stop for you.
