Pros: - reasonable decorated and spacious rooms - Good breakfast buffet - Swimming pool and beach is closeby - Modern bathroom Cons: - No WiFi in room, only at reception - Located at the far end of the boulevard. The city centre is also far away - Garden was full with rubish

At my stay in la serena for dakar rally, this hotel was a big disappointment. Worn out beachfront room,dirty and worn out bath room, dirty windows and no service. There was a party ongoing, but staff at the bar didn't service after 11PM.Poor breakfast. Also quite overpriced.

Not a bad hotel, but i would look for better options in the city. Rooms are just ok, with pretty small bathrooms.

The pool was great but I was suspicious as to how clean it was. Our room was worn out, but clean, located on the third floor, no elevator. The first ting I noticed arriving was that the minibar was empty, I belive that this was because the staff has not figured out what its for. Also watch out for the... More

I booked this hotel after going through the location, pics and ratings for this hotel on the net. I wanted to just run away to some other place immediately after I reached this place. While the property as a whole is very nice and interesting, the location is way out of anything. Also the rooms are not modern and nice.... More

This is a htoel that I wouldn;'t rave about nor would I say anything really negative about it. It is a long walk to the center of La SErena but it is next to the beach but quite a walk along the beach to the beach restaurants and activities. The staff was cold, unfriendly and not helpful. The floors of... More

We chose the hotel for its inviting website, however the reality turned out to be very different. The first room we were offered had not been cleaned properly so we asked for another. It too, on closer inspection was dirty and stained. The hallway and room reeked of cigarette smoke and they couldn't offer non-smoking rooms. The bathroom which was... More

I stayed 2 night with my business colleague, in the room at the 2nd floor. Because I saw the previous review claiming its terribleness just after the booking, we were pretty horrified going there. However, fortunately, our expectation was turned out to be wrong. Wooden floor was cleaned up nicely, and the sheets were white and clean. Yes, the wooden... More
