Food is great here. Never tasted anything but good. Fantastic soups especially Tomato & Thai soups. Largely German menu, very tender meat and tasty sauces. Lovely ambience in the evenings but equally good for lunch.

Very good stay of 3 nights with my 13 yr old in tow....as far as not being child friendly the truth of matter is 'Las chicas' is an inescapable truth of the town itself. You see it just from walking throughout the town itself. The place does not overtly advertise this sort of thing, so for us it was fine.... More

The overall sleep quality at this hotel was descent the rooms were clean and the water was hot in the morning. The walls are designed in some psychedelic type of theme I'm not sure it was not very appealing . Unfortunately this hotel only allows patrons one guest at a time and is a cash only establishment. I also was... More

I had a horrible experience at another hotel in Sosua and had to find a different place to stay. This place was amazing! Right in the center of everything, safe parking, clean rooms, WITH AIR, the staff was extremely nice and they have a kitty to greet you every day when you leave and return. :) EXCELLENT RATES!

I came into town just for a night. I've stayed at a different hotel down the block but they were booked solid. This place came highly recommended so I marched down the street to be pleasantly surprised. The man at the desk was able to accommodate my needs last minute. The grounds were really nice and that pool is very... More

Loved this beautiful hotel. Well maintained. Hotel El Rancho looked exactly like the pictures on the internet.The food in the restaurants was wonderful. The beach was just a few minutes walk and there was no need for a rental car as everything was within walking distance. All of the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to... More

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... More

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... More
