Hotel Villa Serena *** - Las Galeras
Why we love this hotel: Villa Serena is the only oceanfront hotel in Las Galeras for travellers who prefer customized service with a wide range of options, but without the all-inclusive mentality. Every room offers a fantastic garden and ocean view.
Villa Serena is a small family-owned hotel with only 21 rooms in a Victorian-style building with a lush tropical garden and direct access to the sea. It is located on the peninsula of Samaná in the Northeast of the Dominican Republic in the small fishing village of Las Galeras, the last town along the road. It therefore has no through-traffic which gives the village its special charm as a perfect beach retreat with an exceedingly tranquil setting. Furthermore, the area is famous for its humpback whales passing through from January to March, and can be seen from your balcony, or on nearby whale watching tours.
Villa Serena is an old colonial building directly on the ocean and has been able to keep its historical flair. Both the pool and the well maintained tropical garden fronting the sea, offer even more spectacular ocean views, besides the one you will have from your room.
Las Galeras is the last village on the peninsula of Samaná. The closest airports are El Catey International (46 miles / 75 kilometers), Las Américas International in Santo Domingo and Gregorio Luperón in Puerto Plata (each 124 miles / 200 kilometers). However we advise you to experience Las Galeras with one of our self-drive tours to see the whole beauty of the Samaná peninsula and the Dominican Republic.
Villa Serena itself is situated directly at the ocean. Walking distance to the main beach of Las Galeras is about 5 minutes, as are the local shops, small restaurants and bars. Playa Fronton and Playa Rincon are among the top-10 beaches in the world, according to the famous Condé Nest Traveler Magazine, and can be reached by boat from Las Galeras in about 15 to 20 minutes.
All rooms are very spacious and equipped with 2 queen-size beds or 1 king-size bed, private terrace with lounge chairs or hammock, mini fridge, safe, air-conditioning (for a surcharge, but you probably won’t need it) and garden and ocean views. The rooms do not include telephone or TV. Interconnecting rooms and cribs are available on request.
