Families with little kids loved it
Posted Feb 7, 2017
We stayed at Sirena Del Mar for 5 days in January 2017. Our friends vacationed with us in their own unit in building 3. We booked an ocean view room and that's what we stayed in. We were on the ground floor building 1 (I think). It was perfect for us, great view of the ocean and now gap in the balcony glass which made me feel Bette as a mom of a mischievous toddler. We were close to the pool but the noise didn't really bother us, we're pretty noisy ourselves.
The pools were great. The smaller one was typically a little warmer so we stayed in there mostly. We used the hot tub one night- it's very big and nice and warm. The fire pit was great too. We mostly cooked our own food in the morning kitchen or on the grills that are open for use- we had rental cars and ran to Walmart and Costco (super easy, we rented with Cactus). We did eat at Estrella a couple times. The food was good, the service/organization a little lacking.
The beach is down a long staircase so don't forget anything but remember you have to carry everything back up too. Also, as others have mentioned, the sand is very chunky and could cut up your feet so bring water shoes (Walmart only had a few sizes left when we were there so maybe buy before you come). The beach is nice in that it is private so no one is trying to sell you stuff. Also, if you stay to the left by the big rocks the sand is much softer. The hotel has beach chairs, umbrellas, and snorkel gear to rent.
