Very quiet place surrounded with nice garden. There are two buildings, the main one has better view on the see. Rooms are big and nice equipped. The only problem is, that there are no mosquito nets above the beds or in the windows. The beach is very small, but sufficient for the people from the hotel. It is a private... More

We stayed here two nights recently as part of an Air Rally. It was the last stop of our trip and turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The rooms are excellent, the grounds are beautiful with a wonderful beach and pool. The WIFI in the lobby as excellent, patchy/absent in rooms. As a place to escape and relax it... More

Serena is a perfect name for this hidden gem. I hesitate to review as to try and keep this place a secret! The people are so kind and the hotel and grounds are so well kept. Loved our stay and didn't want to leave. Wayne and Rhonda Burchett

Villa Serena is a beautiful colonial style building which is nice and light and open with wonderful sea views. We loved Rincon beach which is nearby. Wifi was very patchy although this seems to be par for the course in Dom Rep. Main disappointment was the restaurant. Food took ages to arrive and many things on the menu weren't available.... More

Spacious room adorned with hibiscus flowers and a private balcon with rocking chairs. Our bathroom had its own small hot water tank which never worked that well. Mosquitoes are an issue. Beautiful well-kept gardens, great pool, beach chairs on the lawn and by the pool and small quiet beach with its own deserted island. The view - it's perfect.

The minute you walk into this hotel the first thing that strikes you is the view!! You walk in the door and see right out to the ocean!! The pictures on tripadvisor and the hotel website are what drew me to this hotel and in reality it's even better!! We spent six nights here. As we were on our Honeymoon... More

Villa Serena is a beautiful hotel set in with only 20 rooms. It is very relaxed and the scenery is fantastic. The nearest beach is a 7 min walk away but the garden area and pool is also a great place to relax. The restaurant is okay but sometimes at a Dominican pace. However the food is good and at... More

As you come into Las Galeras take the last turning on the left before you hit the beach. At the end of the road turn right and Villa Serena will be just ahead of you. Don't take too much notice of the approach as this hotel, with just 22 rooms, is a gem. Don't expect loads of facilities, but if... More

Villa Serena is tucked away just off the main roads in Las Galeras making it a relaxing and quiet setting. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well presented, the staff are helpful and friendly, and the grounds are well kept. Overall the décor and design of the hotel gives it an old-worldly feel which we quite enjoyed. The view from... More

Excellent place to stay and relax in a very pleasant environment. The hotel grounds are superb, our room was very nice and the restaurant is quite OK. Don't expect a large beach (there are many coves to explore in the area, and huge beaches between Rio San Juan and Sosua), but enjoy a quiet day in the breeze and a... More
