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... More

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... More

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.

This small hotel exudes Spanish-Caribbean atmosphere, but with a German owner it is very well run and maintained. For $50 a night, I had a delightful room with lots of light and a little balcony. It was at the front overlooking the street, but it was not noisy at night. Although the room was relatively small, it was comfortable and... More

Jürgen from the divebase Merlin recommended this hotel. Our room was no 16. It had a good size, warm shower, balcony for two and a slightly creaky bed. There was a ceiling-fan with adjustable speed and a ridiculously small TV with a cable receiver (which we did not even try to turn on - it's vacation, eh?). We stayed for... More

Having only booked 2 nights at Casa Valeria (highly recommended!) and a change of plans, we needed a place to stay over Xmas. With little reasonably priced options this is where we wound up. Basic room, ground floor, $45, no windows, tiny tv w/cable, a/c, best feature was the 5 minute walk to the beach. FYI-most of the clientele we... More

After a terrible experience at Tampico Angel, formerly known as Sosua Bay Resort, we moved to El Rancho Hotel for the remainder of our trip. We instantly fell in love with the charm of the hotel. For only $50 US, we got a very clean room with A/C and hot water with only 4 minute walk from the beach. The... More

We stayed 4 nights at this small, lovely hotel in Sosua in August 2013. We paid $55 USD per night for an air conditioned room with a kitchenette facing the pool. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel staff was very accommodating. Jesus cleans the pool twice a day. Soledad, the hotel cat, even hung out with us. There... More

El Rancho is perfect! Brief walk to the beaches, cafes and shopping. Clean, convenient, secure and inexpensive; we paid US $50 per night for a poolside, terrace room with a kitchenette. Stayed six days. Garden like setting with abundent hisbiscus and a large overhanging limoncillo tree. Wonderful staff: Jose, Hector, Jesus and "Soledad" the friendly hotel cat. Resturant on premises... More
