Casa Serena Guest House
Ranked #8 of 31 Sosua B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 March 2012

My husband and I stayed here in January of 2011. We had just been married and were looking for a quick week away! This place was perfect.

Richard has an amazing B&B! He keeps the place in excellent condition. We stayed in the ground room and the top room with a view. Richard was an amazing host, he had great tips on what to see and do. He told us about a Thai restaurant up the hill that was spectacular, he made the reservation, dropped us off and picked us up. He is such a great person. Please take the time to get to know him! Breakfast was beautiful and very yummy.

I was too scared to ride the motorcycle taxis so we walked into town everyday and walked home. It was roughly 15-20 minutes to walk. But a great time to chat and meet all the street dogs!

We highly recommend staying here! It was very peaceful and relaxing! We would definitely come back to stay again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful! We liked the ground room the best because we enjoyed our morning and ev...

Wonderful B&B in a nice residential area in the hills above Sosua. Spotless, comfortable, nicely but simply decorated. Lovely pool and patio areas, and garden. Richard was a great host and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. It was fun talking with him. Breakfasts were large and very good I never needed lunch. Very comfortable bed, nice linens, screens on the windows (there was a nice breeze, which made air conditioning unnecessary). I was in the turret room - large, bright and airy with great views.

Be aware that you are a bit far from town and the beaches, but if you don't have a car, it is easy to flag down a "moto" (taxi scooter) on the road for a ride in (about $30 pesos) and there are always plenty of them in town.

The neighborhood is generally quiet, allowing you to hear frogs and birds, but one night there was live music from a resort nearby and a neighbor played music loudly one day and evening. But all was quiet by 10 or 11 pm and most of the time it was nicely quiet.

The family dogs were great.

Be sure to ask Richard about the Thai restaurant further up the hill. It was great (see separate review) and he took me up and collected me afterwards.

We had a 2 week stay at the beautiful "Casa Serena Guesthouse" in June. Richard's hospitality was truly amazing...he made us feel at home as soon as we entered the property.We booked the "turret room",which has it's own private balcony,with great views across the surrounding area. It was great relaxing at the side of the swimming pool for a couple of hours,before taking a lazy 15-20 minute stroll into the town of Sosua and the beach. We booked a couple of organized day trips,one of which was snorkeling on "Paradise Island"... it was such a beautiful experience. We enjoyed our little chats with Richard,who advised us on how to get the best from our holiday. Would we go again ? YES ! Thank You so much Richard...for the memories !

Casa Serena is located justed far enough away from the bustle of Sosua to make us feel like locals. Host Richard made us feel so welcome, and provided insights into the country we would have missed if we'd stayed at a big beach resort.
Our quiet comfortable room overlooked the large pool, perfect for our morning and afternoon dips. Resident dogs wagged their welcome. Breakfasts were delicious, served on the lanai overlooking the tropical garden,
We visited the Museo MUNDO KING - an eclectic collection of Haitian art, not to be missed.
Our stay was short - just two days - but perfectly relaxing. We arrived as guests and left as friends.

Richard took excellent care of us on our three or four nights stay, including great local coffee in the mornings.

Beautiful round rooms, smashing breakfasts, secluded enough from the hubbub of Sosua without being isolated, excellent pool, four dogs keeping an eye on things, great views from balconies, highly recommended!!!!

Casa Serena was all that we had hoped for and more. We cannot praise it too highly. Our room was over looking the pool. It was simple. very clean and tastefully decorated. The pool is scrupulously clean and the gardens are lovely.

Wonderful breakfasts were included.

Richard and Richi are marvelous hosts. They gave us a lot of information about Sosua and surrounding areas which made our trip much more enjoyable. They have lived in Sosua for five years and were able to advise us and to recommend the best of the local and international restaurants.

We had no problems walking to the beach and using moto taxis and the local busses. They are both easy to use and Richard and Richi were very helpful with their advice.

We are a middle aged couple and have travelled all over the world. Mostly we have stayed in guesthouses. Casa Serena is without a doubt the best bed and breakfast experience that we have had.

We just returned from a week at the Casa Serena. Such a lovely house, gardens and pool. Richie and Richard are just great hosts and treat everyone like family, maybe even better than family. We have done much traveling and were very impressed with how clean and comfortable the rooms were. This is THE PLACE TO STAY in the Sosuo/Puerta Plata area. Look no further.
