Rocky's is right in the middle of town. Walk or take a moto wherever you want to go. Great food and atmosphere! Lots of regulars and kind of an expat hangout. Rick is the absolute BEST for local information and assistance in so many ways.I ran into some issues while staying there and Rick helped tremendously. Note to the whiners...

Recently stayed at Rocky's and in the may rose apartments owned and operated by Rick and his wife. The first thing that struck me about both places was the toilet paper.... Rick obviously wants his guests to be comfortable as the toilet paper in both places was the softest and best smelling TP I have ever encountered on my travels....

This was my first trip to POP without friends in tow. Instead of renting a large house I decided to try out Rocky's and was pleasantly surprised. From the Pickup to check-out I was treated very professionally and like family. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on a budget, but doesn't want to compromise.

When you travel to a part of the world that you don't know. You need to know some one to trust. Someone who wants you to have fun AND has your back. Rick cares about people. Not just for his business but by nature. He will do his best for you. Just such a good vibe dealing with him and...

Wonderful rooms and atmosphere! Clean!!! Excellent service and individualized care. Highly recommend! I am a middle aged single lady and the employees always made certain that I had what I needed to feel safe, even when I left the Hotel.

The Rocky hotel in Sosua is right in the center of town, close to all amenities, restaurants, nightlife etc.; of course it is noisy at night (and amazingly silent in the morning...); Rick also provides accommodation in the Trade Wind Condo, which is slightly out of town but much more silent. Good value for money.

I visit Sosua a few times each year and almost every time I stay with Rick and Rocky's apartments! I say "almost" because sometimes he's sold out! There are a lot of properties in and around Sosua. Few sell out as often as Rocky's apartments. This should tell you something! Rick looks after you and book early! Going back again...

I have been to Sosua several times. Every time we go to Rocky's for food and drinks. It is a nice place to meet other English speaking people. The food is good. The beer is cold. The prices are great. What more could you want. We have also rented rooms at two different locations from Rocky's. The rooms are clean...

Anyone surprised at the fact that Rockys received another award has not had the privilege of meeting or spending time with Rick and Milka. This was my 6th trip to the DR in the last year and only my 2nd time staying at one of Rick and Milkas property's, I wish I had found them for my first 4 times...

A friend of mines who had been coming to Sosua for a number of years invited me to come with him last month. He explained all the details and I was sold on coming to the DR. He told me that he has stayed at Rockys a few times and that it was good value for money. In my opinion...

“Some rooms come with or without AC. I'd advise you choose the room with the AC.”
