Beautiful views from the infinity pool, hot tubs and restaurants but the villa needed some improvements. Do not utilize bruce Kessler for the Hot Yoga Vacations/Hot yoga Bliss. Awful experience. He deceived us to think we were booked at this resort for 7 nights, when he only booked us here for 6 nights and was aware of it but deceived... More

The hotel especially the manager - Angel and the rest of the staff (Myra, Susanna, Ruben, Antonio, Luis) are all amazing. However, DO NOT utilize Bruce Kesller from Hot Yoga Vacations / Hot Yoga Bliss. He deceived us to think we were booked at this resort for 7 nights, when he only booked us here for 6 nights and was...

The resort is on a high cliff overlooking the bay. Just a spectacular setting. The views from the infinity pool, hot tubs and restaurants can not be beat. The beach is quite nice. It is clothing optional and how many take advantage of it varies from day to day. You are allowed to use the family hotel next to the... More

We were so happy to spend a few days at Punta Serena. It was so beautiful there, simple, clean and courteous are the words that come to mind. The staff were so nice and the atmosphere is so intimate and quiet. In the bustle of this world, it is a gem to find. The beach is great, small to larger... More

I recommend Hot Yoga Bliss Retreats and Bruce Kessler without hesitation or reservation! Just arrived home to my beautiful Colorado from my first ever Yoga retreat..... while Colorado is gorgeous it's apple and oranges in comparison to the views and service while at the Hot Yoga Bliss Vacations held at the gorgeous Punta Serena in Tenacatita, Mexico.

The resort has changed hands since our visit last year. Some improvements, some not. We made reservations over six months ago and found that the weekend dates were not available. We now know that they are blocked for tour buses and we had to wait till Sunday afternoon to get in. The checkout for the groups was chaotic but we... More

The views are incredible. The food is very good. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The facility itself is a little worn but we didn't stay inside very much. A good book under an umbrella beside the infinity pool is the most relaxing experience ever. The beach is a bit of a hike down the stairs but is worth... More
