I am interested in an extra space additional to a bed area, a sitting room or sittingb area, or something like that with a fridge, AC, pool and security. Closeness to downtown area between Duarte and Dr. Rosen. I do not want a dump.
Apart from the stories of Casa Cayena and their mysterious safe issues are there any reasons why to stay or not stay there?
From all I have talked to, listened to and read from is that Ricks properties aka Rockys hotels and condos - are secure, close to the action, well run, great value, but a little old and a little noisy at night. As far as Sosua Suites they seem close to everything. Is it too loud there? Is it nice or just blah? The Mary Rose condos are a little hike when carrying alot of scuba gear and underwater camera gear. I do like the 2 bedroom condo configuration, but is it a little inconvenient? A great place for 4 guys in 2 condos at a great place. I do like Ricks attitude and willingness to want things right for his guests.
Cuba Dave recommends the Sea Breeze - and its cheap. That is all I know about that place.
El Rancho was recommended to me by a hotel that was full... again no more info.
I do not give a shit what the girls want. It's about me, not them.
If any of you veterans can help it would be great, plus I see free drinks in your future! I am a veteran in Thailand, Indonesia and especially the Philippines. South East Asia in my sweet spot and comfort zone. Howvvever after 30+ trips in the last 7 years from 2 weeks to 5 weeks - I am getting sick of the 30 hour travel in comparison to the 5 hours to get to the Puerta Plata airport.
