We were looking for a getaway and decided on Mexico. We had been to Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa, and Cabo San Lucas all a couple times over the last 20 years, but then we came across this hotel and decided to try a new spot. It was perfection! We booked the shuttle thru the hotel and the driver welcomed us with our name on a sign, a smile, and cold beers. When we arrived at the hotel We were quick to notice that the property is nestled in between the jungle and the beach with quaint cobblestone roads and paths, and the rooms tucked into the jungle and hillside. We stayed in Luna Serena overlooking the beach. The view was amazing and the room, patio, and bed was clean and comfortable. Even with the high temps the lack of air conditioning was not a problem between the ocean breeze and the fans provided in the room. Not enough can be said about the food and drinks. Gourmet dishes with a flare! We ate most of our meals at the hotel and never repeated a dish wanting to try all of them! The staff was amazing and helpful and communication was never a problem. They remembered our favorite drinks and preferences and even our names. If you go you MUST take the walk thru the jungle to Sayulita(after getting directions from the front desk), do the morning yoga on the beach, and book a massage or two. The massages we had were world class and not to be missed! The setting and the therapists made them memorable and the pricing is fantastic. If you want to chill, reconnect, and simply breathe this is the place to go!
