Good value for money and a stylish boutique hotel with nicely decorated rooms and cold AC. There are power showers and the pool is well maintained and the gardens are pretty. My room had a great view (stayed there Easter 2014). It is the sister hotel of Casa Valeria which was overbooked so I stayed at El Rancho instead and...

For $55 per night you simply cannot beat this hotel. You get a clean room, air conditioning, and hot water. For anyone who has traveled in the Dominican Republic you know these are luxuries normally reserved for much higher priced places. Friendly staff, good food, and a nice pool top this off as one of the best deals to be...

Great restaurant with a few german type meals on the menu. Cabbage, sausage, peasoup, etc. nice clean rooms, fans and ac, nice pool area. Close to the beach, not the main beach but a quieter smaller one. Friendly staff and really nothing to complain about.

A quiet location off the main street; Rooms are basic but cleaned daily and quite nice, ceiling fan is more than adequate, staff is great, always looking out for you and the pool was great after a day at the beach. The restaurant was very good, staff was excellent and the food, German, very nicely prepared. I always felt welcome...

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel el Rancho. It isn't a typical hotel, but the staff is friendly and ready to help with any need you may have. They helped us arrange for taxis to travel to the airport and around town. The Hotel is within walking distance to banking, shopping and the beach. We enjoyed breakfast at...

Always safe, clean, and consistent. Great staff and nice restaurant. Next to a great private beach. The rooms are comfortable. Sosua is a neat town has some great places to eat. Only downside is a slight musty smell. Make sure to ask for a room with a balcony for some fresh air.

“All of the rooms that I saw have balconies, I check out 3 rooms, most people would prefer pool side, but noise was not a factor while I was there but the restaurant is poolside, if you go to bed very early or you prefer silence I would ask for a room away from the pool.”
