    • Quite good by Peruvian standards but improvements could be made

      Reviewed 25 August 2019

      Pros: The communal areas were clean, the staff welcoming, the pool was nice, the room was clean with a good TV service and good warm water shower; and an excellent view from the balcony. Cons: The upper bunk for the bunk bed was far too high (or youngest slept in our bed), the WiFi was abysmal (but we were pre-warned), the table football was rusty and dangerous, cats wandering in the restaurant isn't hygienic. They had music blaring out by the poolside, which wasn't a problem in itself, but when there was rap music I didn't want to hear f* this and n* that particularly as I had children, I did ask them to change it, which they did but the same music was on the next day. Averages: The food was OK but nothing to shout from the rooftops about and a little overpriced (we ate out for two of the four nights); breakfast was basic, however it wasn't a problem asking for a bit more. Note in the Los Organos area on the whole prices seem to be higher than they would be compared to the rest of Peru.

    • Nice facilities, poor restaurant

      Reviewed 22 June 2018

      My partner and I were the only guests at the resort for the two nights we were there. It was nice having the whole place to ourselves, though the weather wasn't that great. Days of 23 degrees (Celsius) but with strong winds which made it fairly cold. The beach itself was ok, but the tide left a brown/yellow kind of foamy sludge on the beach and, as appears to be normal in Peru, there was excessive rubbish strewed along the beach and surrounds. We saw two dead sea birds in as many metres, maybe killed from ingesting plastic? Facilities at this resort were quite nice. The pool is modern and attractive (but wasn't clean), there are hammocks, beach umbrellas, a games room, and a concrete fire pit. We stayed in a bungalow facing the beach with a sliding door directly opening to the pool. The restaurant is also modern, however the food served was mediocre and overpriced. Perhaps they put less effort in because it was just the two of us at the resort or because there are no other restaurant options nearby, but that should not be the mentality of a business operator who is trying to draw in clients. Fish or chicken (very dry and bland) with rice was 35 soles, and this was the average price for the limited range of dishes. Ceviche was 50 soles. All the things we tried just weren't up to scratch in taste or value for money. On top of the poor food, the resort has a number of live-in animals. We counted 5 cats and 2 dogs. The cats feel comfortable enough to come into the restaurant and beg for food right at your table, and even attempt to jump up - with no intervention by restaurant staff. At one point I saw two cats walk through the restaurant to the kitchen. I asked the guy if it was acceptable behaviour to let cats into the restaurant and he said no, but would they have shooed them out if I hadn't said anything? My guess is no, given the previous begging cat incident. We also had a cat following us around and trying to get into our room at night. Overall, might be better in summer but there are other options. Unfortunately though you can't do anything about pollution in this country.

      Pros: the linen was nice, the pool was cool, clean and enjoyable, the wait staff were A+, dinner and lunch were good, beach area was fantastic not crowded at all, tv service was great, the room maintenance was fast. Cons: wifi was terrible, they said only worked in the common areas but it didn't work at all anywhere, they need ceiling fans, check in is way too late (3pm), breakfast was mediocre.. need to improve that, they said bar was open since 12pm but one day they decided to close at 4.. don't know why.

      Estuve hospedada hace una semana,la ubicacin es muy buena , al estar alejado es tranquilo, salida directo al mar; no obstante, al estar ubicado un poco lejos, te ves limitado a comer en el restaurante, si bien n9 es un gran fastidio , ya que te podrias quedar muy cmodamente comiendo en el restaurante del hotel,la opciones son limitadas, caras y no son tan buenos, le falta mayor sazn para lo que pagas, esto en comparacin con muchos de los restaurantes que hay en Mancora los cualsa cumplen las tres B

      Un lindo lugar para relajarse, un verdadero Refugio! A unos pasos del Mar, su sonido arrulla, te hace soar! Cabaas frente al mar impecables, una vista inigualable! Naturaleza hermosa, el atardecer increble y su Cielo un Paraso.
