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 the guys pack down anything you can drink. They also have a snack menu where you can order food and they will go up and deliver it to you on the beach. [ Punta Serena it would be nice to have some tables maybe attached to the Palapas so you don't have to use the lounger for a table] It would make eating so much easier.
There have been some changes to the staff working there but everyone is so nice. It really makes it a nice place to stay.
Alfredo was awesome. Very kind and is really serious about his job. Susana, Andres, Juan Manual, Jose and lots more were so pleasant to talk to.
Now the changes we don't like and you have probably read it in previous reviews.
They have made the pool and jacuzzi's textile only. It is not c/o anymore. Had I not booked my trip before they made the change July 1st we wouldn't have gone. We would have lost our airfare. On their website it states " Free your mind, spirit and soul clothing optional with a stroll along the beach, a swim in the pool or soak in the outdoor jacuzzi's. A couple paragraphs down it also states " clothing optional at our beach only". Also on their website it says " clothing optional" and you click on it and it says " only at our private beach starting July 1st. Its very deceiving and i told them about 3 days before we left. Its still up 6 days later.
Walking by the pool numerous times during our stay we saw no more than 4 people in it at a time. Those that were, were quite often groping each other. I never saw that at all in 2011 when it was c/o so I don't undertand the change. Either you are or you aren't.
We would love to go back again next year but probably won't unless they change back to the old Punta Serena. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
