  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A perfect place for a quiet, small place right on the sea. The owners treated us like family. Elise is a great chef and prepared made to order breakfast each day. He also prepared an amazing surf and turf dinner for a good price. If you want lots of tourists nearby, this is the wrong end of the island. However, if you want intimate and quiet with great beaches a few kilometers away, this is a great choice.

    This place was amazing! The staff was super friendly and treated us like family. The view was incredible along with the tranquility. Best snorkeling on the island off their deck. Just perfect all around. It’s name is absolutely fitting.

    This family owned and run hotel is perfection. They made us feel welcome and part of their home while we there. They have snorkels and kayaks at no additional cost. You have a home cooked breakfast every morning on the water and access to the outdoor kitchen if your like me and get up super early and NEED your coffee fix. This place has everything you need for amazing trip. LOOK NO FURTHER!

    This is a boutique and very personal attentive hotel. Absolutely love it. The space, the scenery was beautiful, the personal interaction with everyone. They made every accommodation we requested. Perfectly off the tourist area but close enough to all attractions the island has.

    They treat you like family. Awesome place. The chef makes a good breakfast and you can have a private dinner by the water at sunset. We didn't have a car and the owner ran us to the store. I would recomend renting a car.

    A hidden diamond, an enchanting experience, amazing family, feel free to be in a free spirit on your own private island experience. In a judgment free zone, where the importance of family prevails.. the local experience is to me more of an interesting experience than in the resort venue.. Serene by the Sea is still in the making with an undercover presence.. I was warmly welcomed by Reno who was outside waiting for us as we arrived! Every morning fresh coffee awaits and Chef Elise awaits eagerly to make breakfast for you. The Owner Desiree a lovely down to earth soul, provides even more VIP experiences, I had an excellent pedicure on site they also provide massages,, Blanca did my pedicure very relaxing on the premises. Aimee and his wife Alicia were charming couple! Aimee makes sure your having Fun and can recommend local places to dine and visit! The rooms are spotless and the views are breathtaking! You can even dine on the premises with chef Elise the food was excellent with local flavors fresh from the sea! Momma also was elegant and kind I had a hard time leaving my puppy behind and was so happy to have family pets around I personally was able to engage with Luna who is a sweet and loving and if your scratch her back she dances and bingo I absolutely love this Pitty made my trip and Puppy who has so much energy so cute! I best restaurants are located right in walking distance and there is all you need right there beach kayaks etc. you can chose to engage or just Be.

    Nicely located by the ocean

    We had a really nice stay at Serene by the Sea. The people who own the place are really friendly. The place is well located by the ocean.

    The B&B is very private and quiet. Cleanliness of the beach is not great, primarily because of the dogs ( seen lots of poop on the beach area). The rooms are OK. Service is interesting. The B&B is operated by a family. They take care of breakfast in the morning (which we barely had). The food offered is very basic - toast, coffee, peanut butter, eggs. It is mostly self service. I don’t recommend having dinner there as the food wasn’t great. The restaurant next door (Fishbone) is amazing.

    Serene by the Sea truly made my vacation experience. If you're interested in a little less glamour & a little more authenticity, island vibe... then this is the perfect place for you. Serene is family owned so everyone was incredibly friendly & welcoming. It's in the non-tourist area of town so less crowded, quiet and many areas for relaxing by the water. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance, grocery stores within a 5 min driving distance and San Nicholas/Baby Beach within a 15 min drive. I didn't travel North much, only when I wanted to do the touristy things but it was only a 30 min (very easy) drive. I've recommended this place to all of my friends and family! I would definitely stay here again.
