I hadn't gone to look at any new places for awhile, and so I thought I'd dig around a bit and add a few to the list:
right across the street from Casa Cayena. Colours a bit garish but the rooms are decent, very comparable to Casa Cayena and $5-10 bucks cheaper a night than Casa Cayena, but no meals included. Little bar/restaurant on premises as well as a pool. Guest friendly and seems like it would be ok for a stay. The Penthouse suite is extremely nice, maybe the best room I've seen in Sosua, with a big spacious living area and kitchen/bar with a nice veranda. The bedroom has two double beds plus a double mattress in a small loft inside the bedroom. This is the only downside, as if you didn't want to float around the place by yourself then you'd be forced to share the same bedroom albeit in different beds. $150 night but if I was going to splurge that's where I would stay.
I had a look at the grounds, which were nice, but you could immediately see some buildigns were better maintained than others. I went with coolricky to see his room and the room was nice, with a good view, but probably a bit overpriced for value at $85/night. It wasn't substantially nicer than other rooms in the area but does come stocked with a mini bar and the view is definitely great. If you're on one of those seaside rooms near the bottom then you have a fuck of a lot of stairs to deal with though. I understand they're still having water issues. I probably wouldn't stay there for the price but there was nothing wrong with the room
I decided to have a look at this place, not having heard anything about it. It's one block up the hill behind Playero supermarket, so very close to the action. This could be a great spot for a budget minded monger. They have 3 types of rooms, normal without air conditioning, normal with air conditioning, and large with air conditioning (large means has two double beds). They are priced at 1200, 1800 and 2500 pesos respectively. The rooms were bright and seemed comfortable. Place has a pool and a small restaurant onsite, which I believe is tied to specific hours only. It's not set up as a commercial restaurant. Very quiet. Very nice Italian woman running the place. Didn't see any daytime security but not sure about the night time. That's good and bad. For the price it looked like a pretty good deal to me. Something to keep in mind especially when everything else is full up. Seems like good value.
