    Having been born and brought up in the Caribbean and travelling extensively through many of the islands, Villa Serena in las Galeras offers up a destination I have never seen before, a charming old world feeling boutique hotel, in the uniquely lush gardens of beautiful greenery and wild volcanic facing the sunrise of the Atlantic.

    In the very well-kept garden one lies under palm trees, with a view of the sea and the mountains. The water is pleasantly warm and very clean; the small island in front can be reached by swimming. The restaurant is very good, everything is freshly prepared and special wishes are not a problem. If you are looking for peace, you will find it here. A dream.

    The setting is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are well-kept, we loved the pool and little beach. Beautiful room, comfy bed, and stunning view from the porch as we were sitting in out rocking chair or swinging in a hammock. Delicious breakfast every day. Everyone was so sweet and kind, from our driver Lambertoto the front desk manager Fernando and manager Marina. Would love to go back, this time for longer. Thank you everyone!!! Best wishes.

The residence with it's 20 rooms offers a similar atmosphere and the perfect surrounding to get rid of all our daily stress and the negative properties of a common city life.
