Traveled to Vallenar from Santiago the day before and stopped in La Serena for the night on the way back. Mar de Ensueno is a quiet hotel - at least when I was there - and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast was decent. The coffee was real and not instant. Nice restaurants within walking distance.

Good hotel to spend vacation in la Serena: Nothing fancy but comfortable and good atention from staff The breakfast was simply but good and had nice touches like temperated swimming pool was and bikes to borrow and use in the pedestrian next to the beach I think the quality of matress and pillow could be better.

The staff was attentive, responded to our requests for hot water delays, etc. and the room was clean. The TV had no channels because of some kind of issue with the provider, according to the front desk. There was a minor earthquake while we stayed there ( serval weeks before the major 8.3 struck in September ) and the building... More

We visited La Serena in winter (July 2015) and although it's the low season, it was still very enjoyable to see the nice broad beach and waves crashing in! Mar de Ensueno had a lot of personality, the staff were polite to us and responded to our limited requests, breakfast in the morning was good, and the room was good... More

We stayed in January 2015 and had a great time. The room was small but had everything we needed, including a small kitchenette and a stocked fridge. The pool was great and the kids spent a lot of time in it playing with the woggles and balls provided. The location was excellent, just opposite the beach and main promenade. The... More

Expensive for quality received. Stayed in cabin #1 in late August and it was cold at nights. Heater was a wall mounted gas unit. Very unsafe for our children. Room had a musty smell but was pretty clean. Breakfast ok with good coffee and hot milk. Best part was being right across street from the beach and the grounds good... More

Nice location right on the beach. The price was right and I have stayed in far worse while traveling for work. If the restaurant had been open this would have been a better choice for business travel. This hotel seems more like a family summer beach resort than business travellers location.

We like this hotel because it looks different and very inviting from the main road on the sea front. Although mainly families staying here the rooms are large all with sea views. The town isn't that interesting other than the beach lots of nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

We got to La Serena at 5pm one evening on our trip and had no reservations yet, but in April the entire strip of hotels along the ocean were nearly completely empty so getting a room was not a problem. We walked in and negotiated a decrease in the rate for the evening. The hotel was nothing special at all,... More

I stayed for a week with family and child. We were really unlucky that a massive school sporting event was taking place at the same time and most of the hotel was full of teenagers during our stay. Most of them were misbehaved at night and carried on until the small hours of the morning. Unfortunately the staff did not... More
