Oleaje Sereno Hotel
Ranked #8 of 20 Hotels in Punta Arenas
Reviewed January 21, 2013

What a lucky find! I had seen some older mixed reviews of this place, but wanted to check it out when I got to Sierpe. It had been taken over by an experienced hospitality entrepreneur only three days before. I got a great deal, the room was just fine and they threw in breakfast for the bargain price of $20 (reduced to $15 for a three night stay).

OK, work is being done, but it is moving along quickly. WiFi is being installed and the kitchen being updated.

The deck by the river is a wonderful place to sit and read. I met some Costa Ricans there one evening who were checking out the hotel for a family visit and had a very nice conversation. It offers a nice view of the tour boats coming and going, a variety of birds and the odd crocodile popping up about 50 feet out.

The room was fine - AC, no TV; private bath with quick hot water. There is secure parking just down the street and it's an easy walk to the center of Sierpe with several restaurants, bars, stores, etc. That is also where the boat tours leave from - mangrove swamp tour, Corcovado, Isla Cano and the shuttle boat to Drake Bay.

It is also only 4 miles from the Archeological Park of the Diquis Spheres - large mysterious stone spheres crafted by precolumbian Mesoamericans. The park is under construction, but open to the public. A visitor center is going up and the small transportation station is almost complete.

David is the hotel manager and is very pleasant and helpful. He is very invested in making it a success.

This is a great place to spend a few quiet days, enjoy the river, and take a tour or two. The food in town is very good., the bars are peaceful, and there is a steady flow of people from all over the world getting on and off the boats.

I will definitely go back for another visit.

Nice air conditioned and clean rooms at a very reasonable rate. Beautiful restaurant with on the river. Helpful staff! Make sure you make your reservations directly with the hotel website, hoteloleajesereno.com. DO NOT use Discovery Travel World to book your room!!! Discovery Travel World charged our card and did not make a reservation. Fortunately when we got there at 11pm there was a room. They were so helpful...we highly recommend this hotel!!!

Don't stay here! We booked ahead at Hotel Oleaje on the internet as we were catching a boat from Sierpe to Corcovado National Park the next day. Our room stank of mothballs (the bathroom was unbearable) and the paint was peeling off the walls where there had been a major water leak from the air conditioner. It was dramatically overpriced (ten times the price of other places in town we later discovered) and depressing.
