Excellent place to stay. It is a little outside Macora, which is good if you like quiet and relaxing. The owners were wonderful.

Marcilia beach bungalows is one of the nicest places I've stayed throughout South America. We were lucky to be in the bungalow at the front of the beach which was so beautiful. The owners are really friendly and helpful also. If the breakfast was improved a bit then this place would be perfect!

We could not have been happier with our decision to stay with Marcial and his wife, Cecilia. Once we saw the beach at Mancora, we were much happier with our beach and the atmosphere. If you need groceries or want to eat out, Mancora is about 25 min by mototaxi. The food that Marcial and Cecilia cook is good (and cheaper) so you may not need to go anywhere else to eat! Lastly, we can't thank Marcial enough for his hospitality and kindness. Would go back in a heartbeat!! A+!

very nice and directly at the beach. you can see the ocean from your bed. after spending a couple nights in mancora-town this was just perfect to end of the trip on a quiet place. very nice food. breakfast could be improved. or actually can, but is a little expensive. wifi is very slow. so if you have to look up and book your next location, you won't be able to do it there.

Dear S. thank you for your comment, wifi becomes slow when there is somebody downloading anything against our permission, once located it is neutralized. Any way you could have asked for help and for sure we could have provided support and some times we lend our laptop to help. I will be waiting for you as promised. 1000 thanks.

Pros: really lovely owners very eager to ensure you have a good stay. Lovely beach far from madding crowds / ounst-ounst-ounst music in town. Bungalows very tidy and spotless. Cons: a little too far from town; 20 mins & 15 soles by tuk tuk. Not many restaurants nearby so cost of commuting to Mancora adds up. Breakfast is a little sparse and a la carte additions a little pricey.

Dear guest, thank you very much for your comment. There are several food offers and specialities around Marcilia. We have pizza,, pasta, sea food and a suchi bar restaurants no more than 300 mts around, there is a place to make yoga and eat superb vegetarian alternatives 500 mt north, Unfortunately you booked only one night with us with no time to check around and enjoy what the area has to offer you.Regarding portion sizes, it is always relative …quality is what really matters to us.

It's such a beautiful place with so sweet owners. They make you feel like family. Either at the movienights or when you talk to them. The food is good the beer is cheap and the beach is directly next to the place. I would come there every time I'll visit mancora. It's so much nicer than the city.

Perfect place to stay if you want to get away from Mancora for a couple of nights. It's very quiet and relaxing - good for couples. Very clean and the interiors are really nice. However we weren't impressed by the breakfast, for the price I expected more than just bread, jam and butter - you can add extras but you will be charged. Also there aren't any cooking facilities in most of the rooms which wasn't made clear on hostelworld and the food available seemed expensive.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a break from the main Mancora beach. The location is remote, so definitely take your food etc with you if you can however there is a tiny grocery store next store for the absolute basics. The beach is stunning, there is noone around, a perfect getaway, it is clean and the water is really blue and clear. We had the cabin w the kitchen and it was amazing to cook every meal, relax and enjoy the beachfront. The place is very clean and comfortable. We even saw whales!

We've stayed a few hostel on our travels throughout South America and this one stands out for being excellent. As ever it is the proprietors that make or break your experience. Here they have beautiful beach-side bungalows, offer great fresh food and are on hand to ensure you have an amazing, relaxing stay. Thoroughly recommended.
