I had a tour to islas balestas in the morning and it was amazing alsoI ate some peruvian dishes in this place and they... More

I stayed at this hotel just for one day, but I found it nice, very clean and with a wonderful and relaxing swimming pool. Everybody was extremely kind and food was amazing. I decided to write this review because I think that good workers like them deserve it.

The room was OK, clean enough. Our shower clogged twice, but the receptionist was very courteous & helpful. A bit inconvenience there, but problem solved, no big deal. Breakfast was OK. Location was OK. Even though it is not a far walk from the beach & dock, it is one of the farther out one. Swimming pool & playground for... More

This was a nice hotel with a massive swimming pool. Staff were helpful in booking our trip to the Islas Ballestas, and breakfast was nice. It was a five to ten minute gentle stroll to the beach. It is literally right next to the Cruz del Sur bus station. We were picked up in a car by the hotel and... More

The mattress was pretty good. The water temperature and pressure were great. The room was pretty clean, though basic. We had a room facing the main road, and it was pretty noisy. The hotel has a decent pool, and it is about a five or six minute walk to the main drag of the town and the main stretch of... More

We were taken to this hotel and were very unhappy with our accommodation. The first room we were given had no running water, so asked for another which did have some water. The beds were very uncomfortable and the pillow was like sleeping on a large rock. The food was edible in the restaurant but we had problems with language.... More

barely a 2 stars hotel. It seems that Peru is generous for "stars". This hotel was old: no a/c, old tube tv, internet not working. Food was ok but nothing to remember of. Very noisy if you room faces the main road. In any case, walls and doors offer no filter for the noise coming from walking guests, cars,...

It is a simple motel, with a decent pool. But rooms are small, bathrooms dirty and smelly, full of ants, flies and spiders. Too old, overpriced

The rooms themselves are fairly basic and the bathroom could certainly do with a lift although the shower worked fine with plenty of hot water and it all seemed pretty clean. Arrived after dark and it appeared that the hotel was in the middle of nowhere so we decided to use the poolside restaurant. The food was very good, although... More

El Mirador is a nice place to stumble upon and a good place to base yourself for trips into the Paracas National Park. The rooms are quite simple but very clean with good bathrooms and beds. Breakfast on the verandah was nice and you can see the sea about 200 metres away. This hotel is on the very edge of... More
