Villa Serena Review

One of the better hotels in the eastern corner of the peninsula, Villa Serena makes for a wonderful, stress-free Samaná vacation. You'll love the secluded location removed from the business of the main beach, but it's also nice being able to walk over to town. Included in the price are the use of kayaks, bicycles, and snorkeling equipment. The views of the El Cayito directly ahead of you and the long pier are a large part of the joy of staying here. In the newer wing, the sensational Room 17 has two balconies and a hammock overlooking the beach. Newer rooms have bamboo canopy beds with covering scrims. Excursions are available directly from the premises and can include a drop off at quiet Playa Rincón for the day by a local fisherman, hiking, and horseback riding.
