Great place right by the beach - perfect to relax and enjoy the (nice and clean) beach. Comfortable bungalows and the owners made us feel very welcome. We extended our stay because we liked it so much.
We booked 3 nights and ended up staying 7. I highly recommend this place, the beach is the best in the area (much better than Mancora or Los Organos). If you can, book the bungalow by the sea, it's the nicest one as the other ones can get a bit "stuffed" at night... making it harder to sleep well. Also be aware that to get to town will cost you 15 soles one way so it's quite pricey when you need to go get money or want to experience other restaurants.
Perfect place for amazing and quiet beach, although no supermarket around (one hour walk). Restaurant at Marcilia is overpriced, simple but of good quality. For food you have to be a little patient. Owners however are really friendly, place is super clean and they are willing to think along planning your day. Definatelly worth a stay!
Right on the beach,amazing to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves.Owners are very helpful and speak very good English.Some of the bungalows had building work going on.The food is very good but you can wait a while for your food,our first night we waited about 2 hours after ordering our food,and there was only 3 other people there.The place is still under construction,to get to the beach we had to dodge a digger and building materials. When it's finished the place will be amazing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. You sleep to the sound of waves crashing on the beach. You wake to delicious breakfasts with good coffee. The food is excellent. It was our first exposure to Peruvian food and what an introduction it was. We highly recommend the quiet high quality establishment! We were even lucky enough to see a few late December wales go splashing south from the hostel property!
We were looking for a relaxing weekend and Marcial and Cecilia had exactly what we need. The bungalows are in Vilchayito which is a very quite town (not like Mancora). The bungalow in the beach is actually in the sand and is like having a private beach. You can even sleep in the beach looking at the stars... We'll definitelly come back if we go again to Mancora
The owner was fantastic! Very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in the superior room and we basically had the beach to ourselves! The room included a small outdoor kitchen, which was great, and the food made by the owner's wife was excellent! If you want a quiet, peaceful stay then this is your best bet! Felt very safe as well.
Great place to stay if you want to chill out for a few days. The food was really good and all fresh. Marciel's Movie Night is cool too. Private outdoor cinema.
Too bad I can only type 500 words cause this hostel deservers at least 5000. Anyway, all you need to know is, we booked 3 nights, and within 5 minutes after arrival we booked another 3. In short: wonderful staff who both worked on a cruise ship for 15 years, nice food, clean bungalows that are being cleaned every day! Private beach, free movies on big screen whenever you want it, good bed, private terrace with a couch and two chairs (per bungalow), and above all a really nice and warm atmosphere
Great hospitality and really good meals, Marcial really goes out of his way to make you feel at home.
