If you are a clean freak like I am, stay away from this place. Although it's affordable and conveniently located close to the beach, the hotel room was disgusting. The room we chose had an awful smell, the soaps in the bathroom were used, and when we asked for a toothpaste, they gave us a reused one. They terribly need... More

From the moment I stepped off the Airport bus and into Serena Villa I was immediately made very welcome and told to treat the place like my home. I started here with the intention of maybe stying a week and then moving on to somewhere else but now I'm in my 3rd week and planning to stay on as long... More
