Perched on Rincon Bay, within easy walking distance of La Playita, Villa Serena is a hospitable jewel. Our room with King bed and balcony was extremely comfortable, the hotel restaurant offered good meals served efficiently, the pool was clean and refreshing, the staff friendly and competent. The message therapist was amazingly good. Hotel staff made transport arrangements with ease. Our...

The property of this hotel is gorgeous and the staff are incredibly helpful. We emailed in advance with millions of questions and they were always super responsive and helpful. My mom was a little disappointed that the "small, private beach" isn't really so much a beach as it is powdery white, fine, sand that is constantly under water. I didn't...

Perfect to relax and to read a book ... Without any annoying noises except the sound of the waves :) Parsimonious and clean rooms! Short menu, however, the quality of the food is very good and the dishes are tasty! People are very friendly! We highly recommend staying in Villa Serena if you are interested in a quite little hotel.

This nice small ginger bread style hotel with only 20 spacious rooms, a grandiose classy lobby surrounded by a wonderful tropical garden is one of the best places, I saw in the country. Perfect and romantic place for honeymooners and those, who want to relax and don`t look for entertainment or animation. 10 minutes walk to the next village (which...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Villa Serena in Las Galeras in November 2015. The property grounds are beautiful. The rooms are large and ours had a large balcony. The staff were attentive and the hotel restaurant is very good considering Las Galeras is a very remote área of the Dominican Republic. We visited Playita by walking...

Marina and the rest of the staff made our stay very pleasant. We wanted a get away, not a crazy resort stay, and we got just that. Las Galeras is a sleepy little town situated near several beautiful beaches and with just enough restaurants to cover a week's stay. Especially if you do as we did and dine at El...

I wish we could stay forever! Villa Serena is absolutely breathtaking. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and have private terraces with beachfront views. There is an outdoor pool, and there are hammocks all around the property. Breakfast is included, and it's great -- a number of choices for the main breakfast meal, a fruit plate, tea or coffee,...

We are frequent travelers to Dominican Republic and this last trip to the Samana Peninsula (our first time to this area) exceeded our expectations. Las Galeras is a hidden gem of a destination off the beaten path with natural beauty and serenity at every glance, in every moment. There is a small, gorgeous colonial style hotel that sits on a...

We stayed here for five nights and found it very relaxing, as the name suggests.

Serene. If you're looking to stay at a classy hotel in a laid-back town, this is it. My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in July and we loved every minute.
