A real beautiful hidden paradise! Lovely small hotel, colonial style, an oasis of peace, wonderful gardens and pool. Hardly any beach at all, but very close to two stunning beaches! Very polite staff and good food.

Villa Serena is a gem. Consider yourself lucky to have an opportunity to stay here. Great setting, great facility, and great staff. If you're looking for an all inclusive resort you'll want to look elsewhere.

We only stayed for 3 nights but it was perfect. Lamberto was patiently waiting for us at the airport to take us to the hotel. It was a 3 hour drive but worth it! Check in was easy, Carolina helped us. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was delicious. We absolutely loved our room: comfortable bed, large patio with rocking chairs...

Wonderful, relaxing property with great water access. Not only is the pool is open 24 hours, but the hotel both has its own small beach and is a short walk from two other spectacular beaches. Compared to other places in town, the property is very quiet; the noise you will hear is the sound of the waves and crickets at...

The situation is idyllic, the building colonial style and the rooms charming. The staff friendly and helpful but lacking direction. The food was rather unimaginative and was very hit and miss. For instance a toasted cheese and ham sandwich which might once have seen a grill but was served stone cold with the cheese not even slightly melted. A small...

We wanted a relaxing beach vacation and we found a great spot to do it. The hotel has beautiful ocean views from every room. The main building faces the ocean directly and the secondary building is at a right angle. Each room has a private balcony to enjoy the beach. One downside is if you have heavy smokers next to...

The rooms are as beautiful in real life as they are in the website pictures. The location on Avenida Jimi Hendrix is a short walk to La Playita and an even shorter walk to restaurants and bars in the main tourist part of Las Galeras. If you don't feel like walking, the beach on site is convenient for a swim...

We were very generously hosted at Villa Serena during our 2000 mile kayak from Grenada to Miami. While we were originally only due to stay one night we ended up staying ten as our trip was delayed.
