Relaxing, serene, inspiring
We had a great stay at Serenata del Mar. The house itself is beautiful - completely open and looking out onto the pool, grounds and ocean. We loved the open air style, and also the fact that you could lock off the bedrooms when leaving for the afternoon, and also keep them cooler with air conditioning if needed. Our kids played in the big pool all day long and into the evening and then occasionally we'd head out to boogie board and jump in the waves (big during our stay, but still doable for a 10 year old boy and his mom). We left every afternoon for the 30 minute walk down the beach/road to get dinner at the small ocean restaurants and were able to get a few supplies at the small grocery stores in town.
If you are looking for a completely quiet, beautiful, peaceful way to reconnect with family and nature, this is your place. We spent our 10 days there reading books, playing in the pool and ocean, and enjoying each other.
Last, but definitely not least, is mention of Zoe and Gary, the next door neighbors/caretakers. They were fantastic and brought us with them to visit the nearby Refugio, as well as a turtle releasing event with a handful of residents. They are great people, very welcoming, and we hope to be back to visit with them, as well as the relaxing stay at this house!
Dear Rachel and family,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Serenata. It means alot to us that you and the family embraced the spirit of Playa Blanca. It is a magical place that puts one at peace. Please come back and see us.
Excellent, relaxing stay at Serenata del Mar
The house is perfect for two couples or a family. The pool is large and maintained extremely well - as are the gardens. Thanks Roberto. There are good restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay at Serenata del Mar in the future. The property is so private and quiet - and so well maintained. Very comfortable beds and nice linens. Thanks!
Perfect week even in the off season
Safe pleasant setting, incredible pool and yard. All of the locals were
friendly kind and very hospitable. The house is lovely and it was all very
A beautiful place but the bugs ruined our stay
Serenata del Mar is an amazing property located in a beatifull location and the personnel taking care of the property could not be better. Unfortunatelly for us, the bugs in the area made us leave in advance because it was just too much.
We are still not sure about what type of bug got to us but it was definitely not the common mosquito (wich is annoing during this time of year), back, legs and arms of 3 of us were completely covered with bites (vast ammounts of repelent were used during our stay).
I strongly recommend to close with mosquito screens the open area of the house and continiously fumigate the place.
Other than that, the place is just perfect for a getaway.
Perfect Spot For Our Honeymoon
Serenata is beautiful! We loved the open space, the pool and the beach. So peaceful and relaxing. Thank you!
We are happy that you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. Congratulations to both of you. May your life together be filled with happiness and joy. Come back and see us and thank you for your kind words about Serenata
Clean. Great Location. VERY nice property. Warm friendly area.
Spent 10 days here with wife and 3 children (two teens and an 11-yr-old). It was a fantastic property. The home and grounds are very well kept. Roberto, the grounds keeper is there 5 days a week to care for this home, and it shows. Ask him to cut down a few coconuts from the trees on the property and open them up to drink. His english isn't all that great, but he's happy to help with anything, and when he wasn't smiling it was because he was singing or whistling! Gary and Zoe, the hosts who live full time next door, are warm and friendly and helpful. They even took us on a personal tour of El Refugio, which proved to be an amazing experience. The little town of Barra de Potosi is cozy, has nearly everything we needed, and is full of very friendly people. So nice to spend time in "old, real Mexico" instead of in the tourist zone (although we hit Zihua/Ixtapa a few times to shop and play -- only a 20-30 min drive). The seafood was great -- we even caught our own and had a local restaurant prepare it for dinner that evening. It was excellent. We nearly always had the beach out front to ourselves, and I already miss the sound of crashing waves lulling me to sleep. The information provided by the Owners was thorough and helpful. We used many of their recommendations and were not disappointed. Booking, payment, and planning were smooth and simple. I would recommend this home without hesitation, and I would go back -- both comments i do not make lightly.
Thank you, Scot, for your kind words. We strive to make our guests experience perfect from the time they book until they shake off the sand and head home. We are lucky owners to have Gary, Zoe and Roberto as our team at Serenata. They are a part of the Playa Blanca magic. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We would love to have you come back to visit.
