We had a comfortable cabin for 4, Location was great, It was very clean, the people were very friendly!! they did not speak English, but I speak Spanish, so there was no problem. Breakfast was adequate. Coffee was only instant and we had to request milk. price was a good value.

Great and tidy little cabanas with decent space and very close to beach. It isn't the cheapest place but still value for money. Only downside is that rooms only have very basic kitchen facilities which makes cooking impossible.

If you pay the full price fixed to high season, so you are losing your money or maybe get regretted later. I paid around 90 USD a night and this was ok considering a fair breakfast is included and that the hotel has a very good location. (One block from the beach and pretty close to Serena Mall).

We had one of the larger cabanas, and it was very roomy for four of us. The inside was clean, but not very nice -- the furnishings are old, with rusted metal parts, a malfunctioning shower head, and show a lot of wear. On the upside, the location is great, a very easy walk to the beach; and the exterior...

We stayed for 5 nights in peak season. La Serena was absolutely packed. The cabins are a bit old and cramped for 4, but they do have a bit of character and tended to grow on you. The swimming pool is good and was kept clean. It is only a minutes walk to the beach.

Also, it was placed near to restaurants and pubs few minutes by walking (But it is possible to find a lot of similar accomodations near by). -The pool was fine and clean and the garden was nice. Negative: -The reservation has to be made only by...

We spent 5 days in our own cabana, in peaceful garden setting near the swimming pool. Had access (by taxi) to shopping centre and "old town" as well as minutes walking to beach. Staff were friendly and efficient, able to help with all our needs. Miguel on reception was excellent, nothing was too much trouble.

We found this accommodation by chance, no lonelyplanet no tripadvisor, and for that reason, we were a bit afraid, but everything was perfect. Cleanliness, Localion, Wifi, Bicycle for free, Service,Swimmingpool everything was perfect. If we come back to la Serena we will lodge here again.

“If you are put in a front room (any room in the small building) ask immediately to be moved to another room in the back. There is some kind of loose part in the street that every time a car pass over it you will hear a disturbing noise like clap, clap. And believe me no one deserves it during the night”
