Staying with Sirena is a great place to start your exploration of the Punta Allen/Ascension Bay area. My boyfriend had stayed with her before and took me to Punta Allen for the first time in January. I absolutely loved it! Sirena, along with everyone else I met there was super friendly. For being a small town there is plenty to do (assuming you're into the outdoors and no crowds) and Sirena can hook you up with information regarding anything you could possibly be interested in. We stayed in the Palapa hut and the Casa Chica and loved them both! The garden is beautiful and if you're looking for a cozy, quiet getaway you'll find it here.
Make sure and bring plenty of pesos as there are no banks in town (and the exchange rate is a bit behind the times). Also, the electricity in Punta Allen doesn't come on until evening so keep that in mind. Day trip tourists roll in around 9 AM and are gone by 5 PM so in the evening you'll feel like a local. All of Sirena's rooms have kitchens besides the Palapa Hut but there are several excellent restaurants in town (definitely try the ceviche at any of them). Overall I would definitely recommend Posada Sirena to anyone coming to Punta Allen.
