We enjoyed another great vacation with friends. We have met very nice couples here. The food is better than previous years. Every request is quickly responded to be Jose. He is fluent in English and a great representative for the resort. We enjoyed the beef canneloni and the salmon ranks among the best. I sure wish they would have coconut... More

This was our 3rd visit to Punta Serena. We were there in March of 2011 and 2012. We enjoyed 2011 the best of any time there, especially becuase it was C/O at the pool and hot tub areas. A lot of the employees have left since our last visit and the restaurant, although the food for the most part is... 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

Pros: -Really nice location with it's own private beach perfect for a "clothing optional" vacation. -Public areas are always kept clean and in great shape (view from the second jacuzzi and the infinity pool were quite amazing). -All personnel are courteous and go out of their way to give great service. -The villa we stayed at (5B) was spacious, clean...

Very nice location and the staff is working very hard to make all right. The rooms are bit old but very clean and big. All rooms have ocean view and the grounds very well maintained. The beach (clouding optional ) is nice and very clean. Security needs to pay more attention for photographers on the beach. Some older male guests... More

To all those looking for that new next step into the wild world of the "au naturel" lifestyle and get shy when reading the information on the web regarding all those places because it seems too extreme or off your own limits... come to this place !! Down to matter, it is a clothing optional resort, but nudity is allowed...... More

In terms of value for money, Punta Serena Resort and Spa is hands downs one of the top two worst hotels in my experience. I was charged 5,964 pesos (over 475USD) for a two night stay, and to describe the hotel and service, especially the reception staff, as sub-par is an understatement. Upon arrival at the hotel the reception staff... More

This was our 7th trip to Punta Serena, and we enjoyed it very much even with the latest changes. What attract us to Punta Serena are the isolated clothing optional beach, the waves (great for boogie boarding) and the wildlife (dolphins, birds, iguanas, turtles). No changes there. The beach is as lovely as ever with spectacular sunrises and sunsets. You... More

We were at Punta Serena several years ago and had a great time. We really enjoyed the nude pool, hot tubs and the beach as well as the good service and the wonderful views. The resort has a great location and a wonderful private and romantic beach that can't be beat for couples. We only travel to clothing optional resorts... More

We just got home from 2 weeks at Punta Serena. This was our second time there as we were there in March of 2011. As my title states changes have been made. First the good. There are two flush toilets down at the beach as well as a shower. They also now have a bar right on the beach that... More
