We spent 4 lovely nights at Marcilia Bungalows as a nice relaxing treat before heading to Ecuador. Our stay was everything we could have hoped for - Julio and Marcial went out of their way to ensure our stay was as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Highly recommend.

This is our favourite place that we stayed in Peru. It's a 15 minute mototaxi ride from Mancora so the beach is much cleaner and more tranquil than the city. The owners are incredibly nice and very helpful. The setting is beautiful and the rooms are well-appointed. We rented Penguinas, and it was worth the extra money to be on the water and to have a kitchenette. The food at the restaurant is quite good, healthy and with generous portions. A must-stay for the weary traveller!


If you wanna relax and chill this place is perfect. The owners run the hostel and create an atmosphere that makes you relax from the moment you arrive. You won't want to leave. 5 star service from the hosts. Good wifi, excellent breakfast, lovely food served all da, right beside the beach, host provides help with excursions/day trips to nearby towns. A number of restaurants nearby if you wanna try different food.


Such a great place to stay....really nice owners, chilled out atmosphere, cute bungalow and right on a beautifull beach away from the madness of Mancora. Felt like luxury backpacking! The carbonara was incredible too! Thanks Cecilia and Marcello....it was a fantastic end to our Peruvian adventure! :-) xxx


We stayed at Marcilia for 5 nights and had such a wonderful experience. It's in a beautiful, quiet location, the bungalows are clean and the showers are warm. Everything about our stay there was perfect, when we arrived we were told how to get everywhere we might need and all the things we could do. Marcial and cecilia are two of the nicest hosts and go out of their way to be helpful. Marcial is also an amazing chef, we ate there almost everyday. Thanks so much for making my birthday perfect!


We loved Marcilla Bungalows. We booked two nights but extended twice as we couldnt get ourselves to leave this little paradise on the beach. Breakfast is lovely, only slight downside is that you have to pay extra for add-ons such as eggs, but they are worth it! There isn't much to do close by (Mancora is 7km away), but you can sit on the terrace overlooking the sea, read, swim and relax.


The owner of the hostal is really nice. He will help you with everything. We first booked a room not next to the beach. But on arrival we could change it and nothing was a problem. Perfect hostel, beautifull beach!


Our stay in Marcilia bangalows was a welcome paradise after 2.5 months in the Andes. Marcial & Cecilia are amazing hosts and excellent cooks! We were treated to hospitality at its very best. The warm welcome, their world class service and their food was amazing! We ate all our dinners with them which all of them were excellent. Marcial even organised a pisco sour demonstration and a movie night! Overall fabulous stay, we would go back in a heartbeat!! Thank you!!


We really enjoyed out stay and can recommend it to everyone who looks for some quiet days at the beach and out of the city!
