“Little jewel, still a work in progress”

The most important thing to note about the Phoenix Resort is that it is brand new as of November 2014. The good thing about this is that all appliances and amenities are new and in good working order. The owner, Benoit, who was there when we were there, is very motivated to make things work and responsive to all suggestions. The downside is that it is still a work in progress, with staff being trained and a few kinks being worked out. Having said this, my husband and I very much enjoyed our stay here.

The small complex of 14 units is very clean and nicely landscaped. It is in a small rural village (not a ghetto and perfectly safe to walk through during the day) about 15 minutes' brisk walk to the beach. We found the village residents to be perfectly friendly. The beach is nearly deserted and we walked miles and miles in either direction, meeting only a few tourists and the occasional person on horseback. Cabarete and Sosua are pretty little beach towns. Our recommendation would be to rent a car if you are able, to allow for maximum freedom of movement. However, for $50, you can have unlimited access to the resort's "guagua," or minibus, for trips to town, etc. Our advice is to be patient and to ask for what you need. Give it 6-12 months to get past growing pains and this will be a little jewel for the independent traveler.

Another tip is to ask for a one-bedroom unit, which is much more spacious and has better storage than the studio. Also, if you are sensitive to noise, bring earplugs as this is in the country and screens don't eliminate noise. You will hear some noise from the pool/bar area, as well as barking dogs outside the complex, roosters, cows and donkeys.
