Since a get there I like everything, good service and nice room but it doesn’t include food so I have to spend a lot of money on food and also pay for the they which was very expensive to not offer food.

Too many extra charges
The hotel is very quiet. Perfect to relax. The down side was charged way over the amount that hotels puts on their portal room said it was $130 ended up paying close to $200 that included the $10 they charge to use the air conditioner mind you I only stayed 1 night. The problem with the A/C didn’t really cool the room. My husband and I hardly slept. We only had breakfast. Didn’t like it only really enjoyed the coffee. I don’t think I will return.

Beautiful property, but will be better once renovations have been completed. Reception area furniture wasn't set up, and check-in/check-out was extremely slow. However, staff were friendly, food in the restaurant was great, and there was a quiet beach only a 10 minute walk away. WiFi was strong and reached throughout the property.

Calm, peaceful, off the beaten track. Near some lovely beaches and only 30 minutes from Samana.

This hotel is in such a beautiful place! A hidden gem that is truly hidden - somewhat hard to get too on roads that are terrifying to drive. However, it is well worth the effort. The lofty colonial style building is beautiful but diminished compared to the grounds, small but gorgeous private beach and ocean view. Service and food was delicious and I was delighted to find healthy (raw vegan and GF options) on the breakfast and regular menu. My only complaint is of the bed which was uncomfortable and the comforter and linens which were dated and grotty. For such a lovely place I would hope to see a newer bedspread or comforter and pillowcases. Overall though, I give this hotel a big win and we will be back!

A serene getaway close to world renowned beaches
My wife and I loved our time at Villa Serena. We spent 3 nights there after spending 4 nights in Las Terrenas area. From the moment we got to Villa Serena to the moment we left, we experienced a peace and serenity. Both the town of Las Galeras and the Villa Serena are like an oasis in the DR allowing you to really relax and enjoy the beauty around you. My wife said, "Villa Serena frees you to feel whatever you need to." Overall, we had an incredible time and would've loved to have spent an extra week there. Some things we loved: -The details put into the guest's experience (fresh juice on arrival, fresh flowers and unique bed setting each morning, folded toilet paper to look pretty, custom soaps and conditioner) -The views from grounds and balcony (the Mts and ocean were a great combo) -The great-tasting and fresh food at restaurant -The customer service-every staff member from hostess to maintenance made us feel very welcomed -Snorkel gear, kayaks, bikes, etc being available for usage for free -Room- our room was large, balconies were awesome with ocean views, and AC worked great -Javo beach (short walk) was an awesome place to hang out for the day Things we didn't love that could be improved: -Hot water didn't work for more than 2 mins even after following hot water system steps (probably needs an upgraded system) -Fridge was very small and didn't get cold for first two days even on max setting
