6.5 Good
Pros: Modern hotel, large rooms, near the beach if that is where you want to be.
Cons: Poor service in restaurant, poor breakfast (eggs burned and then left to go cold), No heating in rooms and a/c heating function would not work. Hotel is by the beach but the beach is a long way from the city, so really there is nothing in the area. I canceled my reservation for a future visit and rebooked elsewhere.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean and comfortable
Cons: Price was a bit high
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very guest-friendly and accommodating, Good restaurant.
Cons: Maybe more outdoor chairs at the pool.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Stayed just 2 nights for a conference, chose this hotel since it was accredited and had available shuttle to the venue. I was told by other participants that the breakfast in this hotel was better than the hotel where the event was held which was my first choice. If only for that, I am glad I booked this hotel. Coffee was good too.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good
Cons: Nothing
7.1 Good
Pros: An older property situated about ten minutes walk from the beach and restaurants. Bedrooms comfortable and washing facilities were good. No cooking facilities in our particular room although I think that other rooms have them. The staff were very welcoming and were very helpful when it came to booking taxis, advising us of places to go, etc. Relaxed family atmosphere. It seemed to be in a safe area despite being accessed along a dirt road. Other families had children who seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Cons: The room had a toaster and a kettle as well as a large fridge. A hob would have been useful but in our particular room there wasn't much space for one. The other apartments seem to be larger. Very good value for money though, and we were visiting out of season.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: During the time of the solar eclipse, Serena Dream gave us not only a beautiful environment, perfect facilities, delicious food, but also the feeling of an old friend, the feeling of our own family. They drived us to rent a car and brought it back. Conny even called her husband to drive us to the airport. They did everything that a family member could do for you. Thanks Daniel! Thanks Maria! Thanks Serena Dream. Without you, there wouldn't be such a wonder trip of solar eclipse.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The only thing I missed was a kettle in the room as I get up very early in the morning and like my coffee.
Cons: no complaints
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The Location is amazing! The breakfast is really good but unfortunately no avocados, which are so typical for Chilean breakfasts! The staff is friendly!
7.0 Good
Pros: Breakfast was nice; coffee so-so; lovely fruit and flavored waters. The bed was comfortable. Andres, the desk manager in the late afternoon/evening shift is super helpful and always went the extra mile to help us with any issue. He speaks very good English.
Cons: WiFi! It is not a system that is reliable in all areas. Our room was slightly out of reach and the connection was spotty (and irritatingly slow and dropped the connection). Beachfront rooms, for which we paid extra, were noisy and unpleasant until midnight or past. Do not upgrade to beach view—you get to see vendors selling cheesy stuff, playing extremely loud music from boom boxes. Choose a quiet room in the back. I like plain (unsweetened) yogurt at breakfast—one can always add fruit or sweeteners but a pre-sweetened product allows for no choice. Note to Hotel: have a few cartons of unsweetened yogurt in the cooler.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location and shower was amazing
Cons: Too slow to check in and check out. I believe it was understaffed
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location and room size

7.0 Good
Pros: The staff, especially in the dining area, was very friendly.
Cons: The room was supposed to have a balcony. However there are only (loud) rooms with a terrace on the bottom floor and rooms without a balcony on the first floor.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean and comfortable rooms, nice pool and close to the old town, although recent political activities have left much of the old town boarded up and covered in political graffiti. Twenty mins walk to the beach or a £5 taxi ride.
Cons: Nice hotel if a bit soulless, at checkin the receptionist didn’t seem at all interested! Seems a bit understaffed for room cleaning (5pm!) and at breakfast.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Coffee
Cons: Mold in the bath No AC No hot water in the shower the first two days Pool dirty Grass areas with undergrowth Breakfast bread not fresh
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was super nice
8.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the location, just a few blocks from the town center, the room was nice overlooking the pool area from the 3rd floor. The staff was friendly, some are bilingual. For me communication was okay. If you want to get the feel of La Serena, this is where you want to locate yourself, to move around see the day to day life of the people. The beach is about a mile away. Knowing some Spanish would be a plus. All and all, I would do this again.
Cons: If you read the internet, you will know there is protests. The main boulevard during the evening and night is to be avoided. However, the location of the hotel is safe and secure. The police have patience with the protests and protect the business and pleasure areas. This not a condemnation of the hotel and it's location. Be aware of what time during the day you do things and you will enjoy this stay.
7.0 Good
Pros: Hotel was nice , felt bad about tourism being down due to political situation.
6.0 Good
Pros: The hotel provided free parking in very busy La Serena. It had a pool and a few sunbeds.
Cons: The hotel was showing its age. The décor was rather drab and the bedrooms needed updating. Breakfast was poor in a restaurant with no ambience. It was very disappointing that this once grand hotel was no longer grand.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. Patient explanations about visiting places. Friendly staff, comfortable room and bed.
Cons: Shower took a long time to get to temperature and flow from middle of shower head not so powerful. Overhead shower just a dribble. These are very minor niggles.
