“Peaceful, friendly, and picturesque hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

The staff is super friendly and personable, not to mention extremely responsive to all the customer's needs. Be prepared to hop on one of the cycle taxis or walk from the beach and restaurant zone. The bed and its linen has a sophisticated European touch. Wifi in the room and throughout the property is very stable and reliable. Overall a nice value and reliable place to return to year after year.

First I would like to emphasize that everything that Ian R posted is accurate. The speed with which common maintenance issues is dealt with is rarely found anywhere in DR. The rooms are very comfortable. The A/C works great and there is also an overhead fan. Water pressure in the shower was only matched by 1 five star hotel in Santo Domingo. No fluctuating water temperatures causing you to get burnt 1 minute and freeze the next. Very adequate hot breakfast including a small cold buffet. Nice pool table with equipment in good condition. Very comfortable patio/balcony. Comfortable, modern lounge chairs surround the very clean pool. I must emphasize the service. I really felt at home. Henk never once made me feel that any request was an imposition. Having visited a multitude of all-inclusive resorts in DR, this was unique. I actually enjoyed the 15 minute walk to the beach or into town even though 50 peso motorcycle rides were readily available. I will DEFINITELY return.

I had an excellent stay at the Voramar, and would highly recommend it to anyone going to Sosua, the hotel is safe and very clean throughout, rooms were cleaned daily and well maintained, the pool was always clean and refreshing. The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the town, or you can opt to get a motor concho day or night for about 1USD
The bar staff were amazing, very friendly and always smiling and laughing never a dull moment with the bar staff. The maids that cleaned the room very friendly, patient and trustworthy, I left them money in my room for a tip on a few occasions and it was still there when I returned, I had to hand it to them in person, the night porter was excellent very friendly looked after your welfare after the other staff had left, served drinks throughout the night with no problems. As for Henk and Joe, what excellent hosts, they run a very nice hotel in a nice location with excellent staff, nothing is too much of a problem, they were always on hand to offer advice on the local candy shop!!! and on the local places to visit, it doesn’t feel like a hotel it feels like home for the time your there, you always got a “hello, how are you doing” from them. I would highly recommend a stay at the Voramar, I will certainly be returning at some point thank you Henk & Joe...Ian R

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Voramar.
Henk and the entire staff were excellent. They were very attentive and addressed any minor issue I had.
I really liked that they arranged a taxi to pick me up from the airport and take me to the hotel. Since this was my first trip to Sosua, it was nice not to have to worry about the hassle of finding a cab and getting to the hotel. Henk also drove me back to the airport at the end of my stay.

If you are looking for a good place to stay while in Sosua, I highly recommend hotel Voramar.

Clean, good sized rooms. Great management (Henk & Joe) and wonderful Dominican hospitality by the bartenders and service ladies. I checked around all of Sosua and this is perhaps the best place in town for the money.

Henk is an excellent host. Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is very well maintained and clean. Location is a short distance from downtown Sasua, but close enough to beach and shopping and resturants. I would stay again and highly recommend. Bob R. Tampa FL

I stayed a Voramar in June 2013 for a fortnight during my maiden trip to Sosua, I was most certainly not disappointed, I loved it there and could easily have managed another two weeks. The Dutch (Henk) & German (Joe) management team do a magnificent job and with only twenty rooms you are quickly really made to feel like one of their friends.
Henk collected me from the local (POP) airport while Joe delivered me back and that in it's self represents a saving of $50.00 from the local taxi mafia.
Although Voramar target single guys as their chief area of patronage, I would most certainly not rule out staying there as a couple.
Rooms are simple yet comfortable & satisfactory with king size bed, walk in shower, flat screen TV, key safe deposit box and pool side balcony.
Location is a little out of the way from Sosua's lively night life (about 2-3km) but there are plenty of local motor concho riders in close proximity who'll take you for 50 pesos.
Their are two top class features of this place, the magnificent swimming pool with both pool side sun loungers & hammocks and the hotel's truly magnificent team of Dominican staff.....every single one of them made me feel so damn welcome, always smiling & laughing.
This trip to Sosua was only meant to be a one off however, it won't be long before I'm returning with Voramar as my address.
