I am from Argentina, living in the Dominican Republic for extended periods and with permanent residence in the USA.
Pablo was a great host. I made the reservation very last minute, but he was willing to accommodate me. The place is nice, and has a little pool to cool off in. However, you do have a little walk into town. Given the busy nature of Sosua, I found this to be a plus, you just have to be willing to do a little walking or have transportation :) The TV had lot of channels in multiple languages. Internet was good.
My first experience in Sosua and Airbnb and overall everything went great. To start, Pablo is a great host. Very accommodating and completely willing to help in any way he can. Pablo was a big plus for me in making sure that my stay was a good one. The room is large, with all the basics you need. It's a few blocks from town though, so you'll need to get a ride on the back of a motorcycle if you don't rent a car (hint: rent a car). Otherwise, this was a great room and I definitely recommend.
Fantastic accommodations & Excellent host, took the time to show me around town on my first night.
A real Gentleman,really central place!
Très cool !!!!!
Petit studio très bien situé dans Paris. Pablo est un voisin de chambré des plus agréable. Séjour sans histoire. Je recommande.
It is a nice little apartment in the center of Paris very close to Metro station. I could get to any of the touristy places quite quick, Pablo was a lovely host, and I had my brief orientation about the place as soon as I met him.
I recommend the place to anyone travelling alone, backpacking through Paris. Nice place, gracious host and a beautiful city.
Pablo is a great host and very interesting person. Thank you, Pablo!
Please be cautious booking with Pablo. He has gone back on his word to me (by his own admission) and I feel he has stolen my money. I booked for 2 nights around the 21st March but that evening I unfortunately had the most miserable night's sleep of my life. It was a freezing room and I was sleeping on a damp broken futon bed, with only a sheet, no blanket, for cover, (Pablo was on the bunk above snoring and farting rather loudly above me). In the morning I told him I was sorry but I couldn't sleep there another night and he promised to refund a night once he was paid. We left on good terms and with the understanding that I did not expect a full refund, perhaps 2/3 of what I had paid. We both seemed satisfied and I happily (now I see naively) trusted him. I left it for a week to see if he refunded by himself. When I began to contact him to gently chase the debt he would hang up quickly or ignore my SMS or emails. Today (2/4/13) I call to hear he "has changed his mind," and will not refund me anything at all. He admits he lied to me. This has been my first experience with Airbnb and to be honest it has makes me a little wary of using it again. Learn from my mistakes: be careful and perhaps only book one night at first to see what the place and the host is really like.
Pablo was a great guest who actually helped my roommate and I coordinate with other guests while we were both out of the country. Pablo is also very understanding and easy to deal with; I had a bit of drama with my landlord while he was staying, which he should have been thoroughly annoyed about, but instead he tactfully helped me defuse the situation. Pablo's varied language skills can also be handy. Highly recommended.
Very communicative, recommended.
Pablo is a friendly and considerate guest. He definitely maximized the available space! And he made me dinner a couple of times. I would host him again.
Una persona brillante, juvenil, llena de energias y buenas vibraciones, con ganas de compartir y conocer.
Mas que un huesped fue un compañero de aventuras!
Response from Pablo:

enjoyed having him stay! :)
Pablo was an amazing guest! Our other guests also loved having him around to share in conversation. Pablo is respectful, courteous, and communicated well before arrival and during his stay.
Excellent guest! Took perfect care of our home, leaving it spotless, and welcome to return soon!
Pablo is a most interesting person, a respectful guest and a seasoned traveller. I have no hesitation to recommend him.
Pablo is a nice and respectful guest. Accept him if he contacts you ;-)
