The hotel is even nicer than on the internet in brochures and see! We have never stayed so calmly and relaxed. Only the breakfast was absolutely not in accordance with the price-performance ratio, since little varied and good quality not high-quality. If you overlook that can spend a holiday in a quiet, natural setting. read hotel review

The hotel is an oasis of calm and relaxation, even if all 21 rooms were occupied! Through intensive care, the complex is very well maintained and has a very special charm! There were all age groups were represented and also many nationalities. The wireless has always worked well, in our case on the balcony. read hotel review

    The rooms are very large and furnished with attention to detail. Very good we liked, that really much reservoir available and a sofa with a table! The bathroom is very spacious and there are toiletries. Every day the refrigerator is with 1.5 liter of mineral water and also the towels were changed every day! A safe is also available, and can without costs be used! And although we had a room in the ground floor, we stayed in 3 weeks not even bugs in the room or on the balcony! We know that different! A truly outstanding housekeeping!

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    Small, but fine restaurant. The here no offer as in all-inclusive hotels offer is, goes without saying. But the menu offers wide selection and everyone can be food to their own taste and put together. We were very satisfied with the food and the service at the table very much! Extra desires without surcharge fulfilled! (we had half board). And in terms of cleanliness: there was nothing to complain about! We know that from all inclusive resorts, but very different! The staff is friendly, courteous and always tried, the guests right to make!

  • Service
    6.0

    The entire staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful. We are against midnight arrived and we could immediately move into our room, in the fridge waiting for a very delicious lunch to us and to the declaration was the next morning in the peace and quiet! It is spanish, english and german spoken. The cleanliness of the whole hotel is outstanding! We had problems with the air conditioning and could immediately move into another room! Briefly and scarcely: here everything is done, so that you feel at home!

    The pool is nestled in a beautiful garden, very clean and well maintained. You can over 3 steps to the sea and then on pure sand! Beach chairs are enough available, also without towel-reservation! There is a shower and every day there were fresh beach towels. If you want a real sandy beach, can these in few minutes reach.

    The place is in about 3 minutes walking distance, where you can find everything, What you need: restaurants, souvenir shops, pharmacy, bank etc. For a larger selection is a drive to Santa Barbara de samana. Also 2 other beaches are within walking distance. The airports are far away, from Puerto Plata we 4 hours. Next time we will on santo domingo are kindly, this transfer takes only 2.5 hours.

Small and quiet cozy hotel with beautiful garden area and a small private beach with rocks and sand. The entrance into the sea is at high tide not always easy. We really enjoyed it. To change recommend excursions (organised) and walks to las galeras and after playito. After a week half board you want a bit more variety, particularly for breakfast. However the service is very pleasant and everything is very relaxed and friendly. read hotel review

A hotel secluded from beaten track. Small (21 rooms) in a lovely, well-kept garden area. Absolutely peacefully located. Atmosphere of a Florida-key villa (reminiscent of hemingway house in Key West). Large balconies. Beautiful rooms, older furniture, but always freshly painted. No tv, no telephone (we didn't bother us). Hotel has charm. Staff friendly, particularly mr Fernando from the reception, the good spirit of the hotel. Manager mrs gillardi open and geprächsbereit with criticism. Restaurant staff willing but hardly fremdsprachenkenntnisse. Very good the service staff Lydia, Carmen, Anna and Esther. Menu was adequate. Breakfast poor but sufficient. Town las galeras could ... 10-minute walk from the hotel, with good shopping possibilities for food. Several good restaurants in the place. Samana original and actually the best address in the cathedral. Republic the place is relatively safe, the population friendly and accommodating. Just a nice place to stay a while. You can get the long transfer time of almost 4 hours (Puerto Plata) gladly in purchase (of santo domingo only 2.5 hour). We felt very much at ease and will be back. read hotel review

Very nice hotel in the colonial style with a magnificent garden. The view from the rooms, from the restaurant, or garden is beautiful! If only take a break from everyday life would like, is here in the right place. Only negative points: the air conditioning is dated and accordingly noisy (really cool they do but), the bath, hand and pool towels ' were in despicable condition and should be urgently renovated, the front desk is the half time not occupy and if, then usually only Spanish speaking staff. read hotel review

The 'villa serena' is a small (21 room), quiet (no animation, no tv, no telephone in the room) and very nicely located hotel, the directly at a very small, but fine sandy beach is (only a few rock at the entrance). The building (main building, neighbouring house and restaurant) remember an old english stately homes-with the difference, that hardly spoke english or german. At least a spanischlexikon everyone should bring your own, otherwise take the improvised 'conversation' already for a very long time (but they are all very friendly and put in the effort). Is' time really beautiful, if you ... don't understand and only with the other guests (many germans, swiss, but also canadians, americans, french, spanish guests etc.) Can speak. The rooms are individually furnished, but are hardly upscale european standards. Skylight there is in the main building (we had room 6) not. The two small lamps are for a big room simply too little. The beds consist of three primitive single parts, with the unsteady kopfkissenseite took some getting used to, but for sleeping is adequate. The bathroom is except for the toilet flushing ok. Our was the whole two weeks only limited, that means as soon as you a paper with reinwarf, you had to having flush, until it drained off was. To two-time repair it was exactly like at the start. As you can tell, that you are in a developing country vacation makes. But the great view of the very well-kept garden and the beautiful sea makes it easily makes up for it. The balcony with the two very elderly rocking chairs has a brighter light and the room! The air conditioning worked reasonably-with us a power outage badly after. Luckily it was at the end of february/beginning march but not so hot. We booked half board. The breakfast is simply, but good. Buffet does not exist, the girls bring the ordered directly at the table. For dinner there are the possibility from four different menus to choose, with it usually beef, fish, pork and a bit vegetarian there. Repeated itself fast and is not very varied, but it tasted and is lovingly prepared. And it isn't so bad, on vacation 'times not outrageous. read hotel review

    All are friendly, foreign languages no-one and the cleaning service do 'was clean, ' not and ' a bit. Especially on your towels you should be careful, otherwise you quickly in the warn out hotel laundry. On complaints reacted immediately, if the repair rarely what. In the restaurant there are some, the react very quickly, other against teach you already ' time the bottle. However altogether does the whole tidy.

    Swimmers, kayaking and that was all. Snorkeling is worthwhile not, it is as good as nothing (stray fish, much seaweed) to see. Who diving wants, should be to playita (20 minutes on foot) go, there continue out. Definitely not miss: a massage when Maria directly at the beach. The woman has magic hands, is extremely nice and understood not a word of english or german, which body thai -massage to the unforgettable experience. We have almost every day a massage when Maria retreat. Every Peso value!

Luckily it was at the end of february/beginning march but not so hot. We booked half board. The breakfast is simply, but good. Buffet does not exist, the girls bring the ordered directly at the table. For dinner there are the possibility from four different menus to choose, with it usually beef, fish, pork and a bit vegetarian there. Repeated itself fast and is not very varied, but it tasted and is lovingly prepared. And it isn't so bad, on vacation 'times not outrageous.

    The small, clean and also for non-swimmer appropriate beach is directly at the hotel. A few minutes walk away there is a shopping mall with pharmacy and internet cafe (mostly, but ' no internet today '). There is also the main beach of las galeras. Those looking for action and parties,, is in the right place there. In villa serena you can barely with (only bad winds could wash algae ashore blasts the bass from there somewhat, but takes not long). With the taxi or with the various tourangeboten one comes through the whole country, should but for the trips (definitely not drive, is suicide!) Much time. From the airport duärt it three and a half hour until to the hotel. Is a real experience \u263a

the hotel lies about 300 meters away the town of LAS galeras, and that is a good thing, as the place often a hell of many boxes and the blasts with your Mopets back and forth. After a annoying and strenuous Island round trip (which we cannot recommend, because of the blatant streets and many military checkpoints) this was beautiful hotel salve to our soul: wonderful large and clean rooms. Very nice and helpful staff. The embedded restaurant is a bit unimaginative the variations for example in the breakfast regards, but this is not so bad, since it is in ... the nearby some nice small restaurants is. The pool is excellent, very clean and with great view on the sea! It is luckily no choice music played there. A quiet, very beautiful hotel! in case we were to go back to the Dominican Republic-which we did not go-we would gladly again anytime to this hotel go. A relaxing Oasis of the silence. Here one can recover! ☺ read hotel review

We (2 friends) stayed for 12 days at the villa Serana, and it us very well pleased, the view from the balcony is well worth a visit. Although the arrival strenuous -3.5 hours by bus from the airport Puerto Plata, it is the trip in any case value. Secluded from Stream. read hotel review

So we recommend this hotel... Beautiful rooms, great garden, nice people. The only negative was the breakfast. Lot too few selection! A buffet very nice! The infrastructure in Las galeras is not designed for mass tourism but perfectly adequate. Some beautiful bars and restaurants are on foot within easy reach. In my opinion a beautiful Mixture of local culture touristic influences. read hotel review

super good food, daily other map with a good choice, daily fresh seafood, service, no buffet. Mineral water free of charge in the room. Wi-Fi free of charge. Bicycles and free canoes; very tasteful rather small area in colonial style. Very spacious tastefully equipped rooms, every room different designed. Very friendly and helpful staff, professional in handling. Directly at the sea and unspoilt, no noise from the street. Spacious designed garden area. In short: ideal to the appreciative enjoyment and relaxation! read hotel review

Always, always stay Villa Serena archived

There is not much to say, as the Villa Serena is only recommendable, Pure Caribbean. Great location from the hotel, beautiful gardens, wonderful food by breakfast + dinner ( from Show can be selected), it's personal chef available where very good cooks ( We had three starters three main courses and three desserts to choose from), especially the fish must be tried, a joy. Beach-small beach front, where sufficient for bathing. Many excursions, and beautiful beaches. ( Playa Rincon, Playa Frondon, Playa Madame, Cala Blanca). The front desk is Julia and Verena the a always help and can also speak ... German. ( We greet you T+C). We were there at the beginning of May and it is always rain, but you couldn't ruin the fun and with such a great place. On a rainy day, the bicycles grabbed ( from the hotel itself without cost) and went to the Playa Playita drove through Las Galleras, then follow a little dirt road to the beach -> adventure pure relaxation. The whole area ( Las Galleras / Samana) is just great -> a Palmenmeer. We stayed for a week at the hotel was not one person ( low season), we had the whole place to ourselves, just peace, and enjoy the sea- sound. Everything was fine a great holiday. All the staff were very kind to us and very friendly. The cocktails we tried were a treat, absolutely delicious. The best is every room has a view of the ocean. We stayed in the main house, I think better as in the annex. In general, the Villa Serena a great Caribbean flair, if you're looking for peace and want to get away from it all from the Stressaltag, is in this area. Villa Serena is just to be recommended. read hotel review
