We stayed there for 7 days and it was perfect!
I've been in many different Hotels in the D.R. and this was really the best one.
- Rooms are very clean
- Bathroom is big and clean, water has enough pressure
- Breakfast was perfect. fresh fruits / fresh bread / superb omelet :)
- Restaurant excellent
- The service-personel was very friendly

There's nothing negative...We will come back for sure

Room Tip: Suite 1 is the biggest one with jacuzzi than suite 2 and 3

My husband I recently spent 6 nights at Casa 21 and enjoyed every second of our stay! Saskia & Marc really do care about their guests and we felt so pampered and catered to the entire time. The pool area is like an oasis of relaxation, and our room was super comfortable. They have literally thought of EVERYTHING and have not overlooked any detail that could help their guests relax.

We were also blown away by their restaurant, which guests have exclusive access to for breakfast and lunch, and is open to the public for dinner. Marc is very humble, but we think he has got to be one of the best chefs in the DR! He has created so many delicious dishes, and is more than happy to accommodate any special requests. From the drinks, to the entrees, to the desserts, to the service everything was excellent. As a guest you have a table reserved for you for dinner every night for you to dine any time the restaurant is open, from 6-10pm. So no running around trying to not be late for dinner reservations!

Saskia was a wonderful help with setting up tours as well. We wanted to do the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua tour, but the Iguana Mama website said they were booked for the only day we could go. But Saskia was able to get us on the tour, which we were so thankful and relieved! She also took us on a tour of the town and the beaches, so that we'd feel comfortable venturing out on our own.

The hotel itself is a former house that Saskia & Marc renovated and transformed into the boutique B & B that it is today, with three guests rooms, gorgeous common areas & balconies, and truly sensational décor at every turn. Going to the DR we didn't really expect to be staying at a hotel that could easily be featured in an architectural digest magazine! The gardens around the house are also so beautiful, including palm trees and beautiful tropical flowers everywhere you look.

Saskia & Marc have done an amazing job, and as a business person myself I was literally taking notes on what they do, because everything they do is right. Most importantly they are very down to earth and by the end of our stay they, and their two dogs Puka & Blanqito, practically felt like family. Thank you Saskia & Marc!! We appreciate everything so much, and we hope to go back someday!

Casa Veintiuno is a truly wonderful bed & breakfast. Saskia and Marc have captured the true essence of customer service and hospitality. It's absolutely stunning and the décor is comforting and relaxing. There's no need to leave Casa 21 if you don't want too. They cater to your every whim and at the same time give you enough space to just relax. My husband and I stayed in Room 2 with the double showers, it was perfect for us. The rooms are immaculate, Juana does a great job!! She even unpacked for us. The food at the restaurant was amazing with a great selection of wines to choose from. Breakfast in the mornings were so personal and a wonderful way to start the day. We spent most days on the beach enjoying the local beach life. It's a very beautiful beach with tons of eating and drinking options. All in all, Casa 21 is a true gem and there's no other place like it in Sosua. We loved it and plan on coming back as soon as we can!! thank you Saskia and Marc for making our vacation truly memorable.

Room Tip: Loved Room 2..double showers

Casa Veintiuno runs the best restaurant in Sosua, by the way and is frequented by ex-pats and locals as well. Everything is organic and they have eco certificated water---so you can brush your teeth with the water from the faucet, drink the water from the faucets and rest assured that all the raw vegetables and food from the restaurant has been washed in clean water. Elegant and very clean. Juana unpacked our suitcase when we arrived and packed it back up for us when we left.
The service is really personalized: Marc and Saskia organized two excursions for us with a private driver and guide, and if you wanted something, you just have to ask for it. Some days we didn't even went to the beach because the design and the whole environment of the hotel is outstanding and already gives you the feeling of spending a perfect holiday! WE stayed here for 3 days in August. Enjoyed the breakfast that Saskia and Marc prepared just for us. waiter David prepares the best cocktails of the DR (his Caipirinha is really famous) We spent days on the beach or at poolside, drank espresso and el Presidente beers. Did a few cultural things : Sosua Jewish Museum and the odd & terrific Castel del Mundo( Haitian art museum: voodoo, spaceships, aliens and religious symbolism).

We stayed here for 10 days and had a very nice time but the area in which the hotel is located is pretty crappy. We stayed in the nicer of the two rooms here and the room itself is pretty and very clean but the "master bed" is actually two twin beds pushed together which was pretty lame. The breakfast is awesome and the host are nice enough but there was few issues with them including giving us someone else dinner bill when we checked out and than they seemed like they didn't believe us that it was not our order(we hate club soda so it couldn't possibly have been ours).

I am not sure where your from but maybe my expectations of Sosua were to high, but Sosua is pretty dumpy. The food at casa21 is good(possibly great at some meals) but everywhere else in sosua the food pretty much sucks, and that is putting it nicely.

Over all I give casa Veintiuno a 4/5 because their hotel is very nice and BY FAR THE BEST IN THIS WHOLE REGION OF THE ISLAND, but having said that maybe I just expected to much of the city.

This was our second time at Casa 21, and it is the perfect oasis for relaxing! We are such fans of what Saskia and Marc have created. This trip we stayed in the room with the jacuzzi, which we loved for three nights. Last time we stayed in Room #3, which is the most basic room, and liked it as well. We are hoping in the future to stay longer as we easily could have stayed for a week. My husband is from the DR and I lived there for nine years so we are very familiar with the area and what it has to offer. If you want an intimate, relaxing oasis with excellent service and quality you will love Casa 21. The food and drinks are outstanding and very reasonably priced! We also enjoyed massages in our room. Saskia arranged everything for us and we didn't have to lift a a finger. Thank you Casa 21! We hope to be back again soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice, but rooms 1 & 2 offer a bit more privacy.

We stayed for 11 days in Casa 21 and this was our best holiday-experience ever !! This is not an ordinary B&B but a real first-class Boutique hotel with a modern and loungy atmosphere. The hotel has extra-ordinary rooms, full of light and with all equipment at your disposal. The balcony, the swimming-pool and the beautiful garden : every inch of this hotel increases your feeling of relaxation. They have eco-certified water, waiter David prepares the best cocktails of the DR (his Caipirinha is really famous), and they serve a breakfast "de luxe" with fresh fruit, fresh juice of all different fruits available in the DR and fresh beaked bread. In the hotel, they also run the best restaurant in town (and maybe one of the best in the DR !). The service is really personalized : Marc and Saskia organized two excursions for us with a private driver and guide, and I if you want something, you just have to ask for it. Some days we didn't even went to the beach because the design and the whole environment of the hotel is outstanding and already gives you the feeling of spending a perfect holiday !
