About Tim Wright
I was born and raised in the UK but I have spent most of the last 25 years living and traveling on boats in the Caribbean. My work involves photographing yachts, mostly when they take part in major Caribbean regattas. Apart from the photos on this prospectus you can see my work at Photo Action website.
Tim Wright purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Tim Wright chose El Batey
After 25 years afloat I wanted a place ashore to 'sling my anchor' when I am not working. What immediately impressed me about Garden Condos was the sense of calm and tranquility once inside the secure gates, and how well kept the gardens are. The condo is pretty darn good too! As I am not planning to live permanently in the DR I wanted a place that is close to everything so I do not need a car.

The place was filthy dirty and I stay here numerous time at this establishment. There were chinnish in the room and other little bugs. This is my worst experience here and the bed curtain was just plain dirty. This is unacceptable. I did not bother telling the Fransika about it. There are many people in and out and you must know cleaning is needed extra.
Dear Big Pop, I am sorry that the cleanliness of the apartment was not up to your standards. As you can see from other reviews this has not been the experience of all. Might I suggest, though, that it would have been helpful to have mentioned your concerns to Franziska at the time (or to me) so she could have done something about it? We only want to do our best for our guests but we can only rectify problems when we know about them.
The place was average. Need some structure upgrade. And better quality of linens and tower, as well as a good upgrade of bedding and pilows.
Management personel was very attemptive and helpfull.
The area where is located is not family friendly.
My experience in Sosua, Garden Condos, #45
I'm a long time visitor of the North Coast of Hispaniola. My main goal is kitesurfing. So easy access to Kitebeach is paramount important. This accommodation gave me a spacious, airy and clean resting place. I didn't had to use AC at all. Had a big balcony to dry my clothes and equipment. Fridge is big. Everything works. Inside the complex is nice and quiet. The pool is big and well maintained. Kitebeach is 7 min away by car. Inside parking! Security for 24 hours! Franziska, the property manager is very helpful. I can honestly recommend this accommodation to single or duo travelers.
One time in Sosua
I arrived in Sosua late at night and the Manager (Franziska) had made arrangements with the security guard and they were waiting for me to arrive, and took me up to the condo which was unlocked and all prepped for my visit. It is a very nice condo looks exactly as shown and is quite safe. The surrounding area is a typical D/R residential not Main St in Disney World.
It was about a leisurely 10 mint walk o Sosua Beach and non stop shops and restaurants all the way right down to and including the beach.
The condo was perfect for me a single male and there were other couples in the complex who said they were quite happy with there places as well. I had access to 2 supermarkets for groceries both of which I walked to quite easily. There were enough pots and pans to cook anything I wanted but access to the BBQ was compromised due to some renovations on the patio.
Thanks Tim I enjoyed my stay at the Garden Condos.
The Best First Time Experience
It was my first time in DR and it was a pleasure to stay at Sosua Gardens. It was just as advertised being secure, with a kind and friendly staff. The condo is far enough from the city center to be peaceful but close enough to walk to and from the nightlife. The condo was equipped whether you are cooking at home or having take out. I would surely recommend it for a single person, couple or friends. Franziska the property manager is a Godsend. I will surely stay there again.
Nice, Clean, Secure, and very reasonable. The staff was very helpful, and much fun was had by all.
There are so many activities to choose from like, surfing, diving, snorkeling, golf, Eco-tours, zip-lines, kite-surfing, white water rafting, gambling, boogie-boarding, deep-sea fishing, safari tours, adventure tours into different parts of the Dominican Republic and much more are available close by.
The Dominicans are very friendly and helpful, you will enjoy their company!
