Stop what you are doing right now and go buy a plane ticket! You deserve some rest and relaxation, no time is better than the present! I also just so happen to have the perfect place to stay in Sosua, Dominican Republic. My Friday Favorites hotel in Sosua, Dominican Republic is Casa Veintiuno.
Casa Veintiuno is a modern boutique hotel with eight rooms and two pools. It is located about 4.5k from the town center of Sosua and about a 5-minute walk to Playa Sosua. If you haven’t been to Sosua before it is a bustling town with tourists and locals scattered about. There are more motorbikes than cars and even more people walking around. When you walk through the doors of Casa Veintiuno it is a total transformation from the city. It is quiet and peaceful with a chic design. You can tell that every part of the hotel was well thought out and designed. There is even rooftop access for some breathtaking views.
Besides the stunning design work another key factor that makes Casa Veintiuno my Friday Favorites hotel is the owners. Saskia and Marc are such delightful hosts. When I tell you that you can’t get any nicer than these two, I’m not kidding. They are originally from Belgium and moved down to the Dominican Republic about 10 years ago. They own Casa Veintiuno with their three super friendly dogs and are available to answer any question you have about the town. Most of the employees have been around since they opened. Everyone is extremely helpful and walking around with smiles on their faces.
The final aspect that makes Casa Veintiuno so amazing and a must stay is their restaurant. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch for guests only. Then they open up to the public for dinner. What makes this restaurant so unique is that they have rotating guest chefs about every 6 months or so. There are some staple menu items that never change, but each guest chef will have their own specials. The current chef is from New Zealand and, if I’m not mistaken, the chef from a few months ago, was Italian.
It is almost impossible to recommend a dish to you because everything was so delicious. Even the mojitos were freshly made to perfection.
I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with whatever you order, but here are a few of our favorite dishes!
The Kataifi with shrimps, chutney of mango and chili sauce was a table favorite! It was a perfect combo of sweet and spicy.
The Beef Tartare was seasoned perfectly and melt in your mouth.
Beef tenderloin with white truffle sauce was another table favorite. Who doesn’t love truffle sauce?!
