Went for a long weekend trip for President's Day 2012. We were looking for a nice getaway from the city and most of all someplace warm. Sirena Del Mar seemed to be the ticket.
We arrived at almost 5 pm, immediately were checked in to a standard room, which was very spacious. Though they front desk said they were completely full, we didn't find the property too crowded. Room was very spacious and nice to have the kitchenette, but as we were only there for a weekend we didn't go to the nearby (10 min cab ride) WalMart or Costco to stock up on groceries. We ate dinner the first night at the resort as they were holding their pool fiesta. Decent drinks, ok food. The ok food would follow us through most of the trip.
Pools are beautiful and as I said, the resort never felt crowded. The service by the hotel staff was excellent, they are friendly and very accommodating. With the sole exception of the restaurant. Food is standard resort food, nothing too special but every time we ate there the service was extremely slow. At breakfast when we were one of two tables there it took almost an hour to get food. We thought it was early the first day so we tried lunch -- about six tables and still an hour to food. We thought that the cook must be cooking one dish at a time. It was so bad my partner was sunburnt from waiting for our lunch to arrive.
The day was a bit windy but the massage service had a great view but was cold and in my experience, not very satisfying. We decided to go into town for dinner as we didn't have much confidence in the restaurant. Next day we gave the restaurant one more try for breakfast but it was the same loooong wait for a pretty basic set of dishes. We ended up going to the nearby Villa Serena, a short walk up the driveway and ended up eating there (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for the rest of the trip. Prices were better and the food was much more satisfying than the resort -- plus it didn't take forever.
We didn't attend the timeshare presentation as we liked the resort but didn't love it.
In the end, it was an A+ for hotel staff, A- for the room, A+ for the view, A for the pools, but a C- for the restaurant and a C- for the massage.
