About PAOLO CERULLI
I like traveling. I visited many countries, not only as a tourist. Nowadays, I spend my life between Italy and the Dominican Republic. I love both the Caribbean and the Mediterranean sea. I'm fond of sailing and water sports. People say I'm open-minded, sincere and reliable. I wish to help you enjoy a pleasant vacation. My motto is: "Bis vincit qui se vincit in victoria".
PAOLO CERULLI purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why PAOLO CERULLI chose El Batey
This island is the only one located right in the center of the Caribbean. Therefore, thanks to its strategic location, it has become a perfect destination for tourists and visitors. It offers a wide variety of natural, geographic, cultural, and tourist attractions, which makes it the ideal choice for a vacation or a second home. I chose to buy this property because of its position so close to town but still in a wonderfully secluded spot with a beautiful beach and lush tropical vegetation. Sosùa international community, which includes Germans, English, French, Americans, and Canadians, has contributed to the development of this region. Sosúa boasts many international restaurants, elegant hotels, cafés, internationally recognized schools and is close to many other tourist attractions in this area. Its beaches and its bay invite you to enjoy water sports, such as snorkeling and diving among the coral reefs with their tropical fish in the endless turquoise waters of the Atlantic. Sosúa is a small paradise which offers you everything in one place!
What makes this Apartment unique
I fell in love with my home because of its vast, comfortable spaces, the beautiful gardens, the almost private beach, the reef rich in colorful fishes you can reach with a short swim and the closeness to downtown.

A friend and I stayed at this property for 6 nights in September 2019. The property managers were great hosts and very responsive. The property is in a great location with beautiful ocean views. It’s also within walking distance to downtown bars and restaurants. I can’t wait to book the property again on my next trip.
Thank you Ben, for your excellent revue. It has been a pleasure hosting you
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcome you again.
Outstanding location to stay
This location is perfect if you want to have a relaxing and quiet vacation. The condo has all the amenities you could ever want and the owner Paolo will be there if you need anything. Our stay was amazing and will recommend this location to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation. The condo is only 10 min walk from the center of town or a 5 min car ride. You will not be disappointed staying at this condo. Will be back soon and will definitely rebook with Paolo at this location again.
Hi Darell, thank you so much for your lovely and detailed review. We look forward to hosting you again whenever you wish.
An amazing oceanfront resort. The best place to stay in Sosua.
The apartment is a few steps from the ocean. Beautifully furnished with all the comforts you can look for. Fast internet connection, two smart TV sets with HD channels, Netflix, but the most precious characteristic is the incredible view from the terrace. The kitchen is professionally equipped and invites to prepare tasty meals. Security is one of the most important aspects to be pointed out and the silence broken only by the sound of the waves and the birds chirping. The beds are super comfortable and the bedsheets and towels first quality. We spent most of our vacation in the resort but Sosua is a little town with a lively nightlife for those who look for excitement and fun, many different good restaurants and bars offer a pleasant entertainment.
The owners are very helpful and ready to help. Definitely a place to recommend if you want to experience the fun of Caribbean atmosphere with all the comforts.
We are proud to receive such good review. We are glad to provide our guests with a pleasant experience and our commitment is to improve every day.
Thank you for your appreciation.
What a fantastic vacation!!!
My wife and I just returned from a 30 day vacation at Paulo and Alina’s condo. We had such a great time that before departing we had already committed to returning for another six weeks next September. It was a totally peaceful and relaxing experience. The condo and property are even nicer than as shown in the pictures and commented in the reviews. We cooked most all of our meals in the condo full kitchen and normally ate on the patio or deck.
We are very active and there is plenty to do. We spent time each day on the peaceful deck on comfortable chairs in the shade, viewing the magnificent ocean and listening to the waves crashing the rocks. It is a great place to read. The infinity pool is large with plenty of chairs and umbrellas, and not too many people so it was quiet and relaxing. There is also a beach where one can relax and play in the waves. You can snorkel off this beach. In fact, it is one of the stops where the snorkel tour boats bring people. The property is beautifully maintained and safe, as there is a daily yard maintenance crew working to keep it all pretty, and there is the presence of guards on the property and at the gates. There was never a moment of safety concern during our stay.
To experience the culture of the city of Sosua, it is a safe walk during the daylight hours. There are many restaurants, clubs, shops, and walking sites to see. There are three beaches that you can walk to with ease. The furthest walk of all is to Sosua beach and that is only 15 minutes. We went there several days. There are numerous shops and eating areas there. We made friends with the group we rented chairs from and they provided great service and watched our belongings when we snorkeled at Sosua beach. This was the best snorkeling location.
The grocery store is very accessible and the Popular bank is a safe place to get money from the ATM.
In the evenings the condo is very comfortable with two televisions with cable, and all other comforts of a home. There is reliable WIFI at both the condo and deck.
There is so much to do and at the same time there is a calmness and peace as this is an absolutely no stress experience. Paulo and Alina are very hospitable and are very available if we had any questions. They are highly customer service oriented and we believe that our vacation enjoyment was their priority. They are the best!
Thank you, for your thorough review. For sure future travellers will take advantage of your detailed description. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and look forward to welcoming you again. You are a beautiful couple and perfect guests. Thank you for taking care of our apartment like it was yours!
Beautiful experince in a luxury condo
I have been on holidays with my boyfriend in such a lovely place. The apartment was very well-maintained and well-equipped in an ocean-front luxury condo. There was a marvallous private beach in front of the apartment where you can spend hours snorkeling. The condo is really close to the city center and you can go on foot to other beautiful beaches, named Playa Sosua and Playa Alicia. I have really enjoyed my stay and I strongly suggest to everyone!
Thank you for the lovely review. Iy has been a pleasure welcoming you. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our apartment, and we hope to accommodate you again.
Wonderful vacation in an ocean view apartment, steps from the private beach
I have been many times in the DR and this is the best place where I've ever stayed. The complex is amazing and extremely safe, they have security 24/7, the right place where you can come with your family and children to relax and enjoy the good Dominican weather.
The complex is located at two minutes walk from the small well furnished town of Sosua, which is great since you don't have to rent a car, you can go to the best restaurants and bars in the area by foot, go shopping groceries at the supermarket, or simply take a walk to enjoy the characteristic Sosua's Caribbean atmosphere.
To go to sea you have many choices, the first and the one that i prefer is to enjoy the wonderful small private beach in front of the condo. From there you have access to the crystal clear ocean, full of colorful fishes which makes your snorkeling adventures amazing, exploring either the three coral reef stones located in front of the complex at nearly 200 feet from the beach or the coastal rocks. The other alternatives to go at sea are Sosua Beach and Playa Alicia respectively 15 min and 10 min walk away.
The apartment is extremely luxurious, and the published photos fail to represent how beautiful and spacious it is. The kitchen is well equipped with stainless steel appliances and all you need to enjoy cooking for friends and family!
The two bedrooms are very quiet and beautiful, the beds are comfortable and help resting and sleeping during vacations.
Last but not least Paolo and Alina are beautiful guests, they took us to the supermarket El Playero on arrival to buy groceries and gave us precious tips about the town and the surroundings.
If you want to enjoy a relaxing and fun vacation in paradise I recommend Paolo's places in Hispanola Beach.
Thank you for the detailed review and your kind words. It has been a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to welcoming you again.
Located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, between white beaches and blue waters, Sosúa is one of the most attractive places near Puerto Plata, with a significant European and American population who, for three decades, have considered it the best tourist destination.
Sosua is a Spanish-Caribbean town full of life; its three powdery white beaches invite bathing and various water sports in the turquoise-blue sea. Beautiful coral reefs lie just offshore and provide an impressive underwater habitat. The corals and colorful tropical fish can provide hours of entertainment for snorkeling and scuba diving.
The combination of friendly Dominicans, lively Latin culture, expatriates, beautiful beaches, and unspoiled countryside makes Sosùa one of the most fun and fascinating places in the Caribbean to vacation.
In Sosùa you can find International restaurants from all over the world, bars, discos, shops and supermarkets, lively nightlife, and the beautiful nature of the North Coast.
