Serene by the Sea is truly a special place in this crazy world. It is family owned & run. The family & staff are the most lovely & gracious hosts. Directly on a water with a small beach, protected by natural barrier- snorkeling, swimming, kayaking are all great fun here. There are plenty of lounge chairs and a few comfy hammocks. The breakfast in the morning is delicious. Freshly made by a kind hearted chef with a giant reverence for the fish & his iguana friends. He can prepare a delicious lunch & dinner if you ask him ahead of time for a private meal. The rooms are sparkling clean, simple and supplied with fluffy beach towels, snorkeling masks, towels, refrigerator, ac( TV too) simple & exactly what you need.
We would recommend a car-- the wonderful manager Reno made arrangements for us. We took a cab ride from airport that cost $38- Airport 10 minutes away.
However, if you simply want to chill and stay put- there are two restaurants next door & grocery store down the road. Or bring home food and dine on the gorgeous deck overlooking the ocean.
Serene is a quiet, peaceful intimate place- we made some great friends. We would return to Aruba just to stay here & decompress.
This place is very unique, so special. Very hard to leave. Thank you Serene by the Sea for everything.
