This location also seems very safe, manager keeps the door locked and has a guard during the night. If you arrive and the for is locked, ring the bell to... More

We stayed here three nights and enjoyed it a lot. Rooms were clean and service was very good. The owner is very helpful and friendly. A trip through the dunes including sandboarding was arranged on short notice at a fair price. Hotel is located very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Overall this was very good value for money!... More

I tried emailing the Santa Maria Hostal but never received a reply after several attempts. That should have been my first clue. We arrived at the hostal in January 2013 and inquired about the rates. It's obviously a modest establishment so I was stunned when the bored-looking owner said 250 soles ($100). We declined and walked away but he then... More

Perfectly adequate, but nothing special, good for the one or two nights tourist spend in this town. Smallish rooms, but lots of light from a inside courtyard, no wifi,just one computer.Save and secure, close to everything.

We had planned to stay 4 nights at Backpacker's House across the street, but after one night there, we moved over to Hostal Santa Maria. For $15 more per night, we had a large triple room with a private bath and a balcony overlooking the main square. The room was impeccably clean and we felt very safe. It was a... More

Basic accomodation but fine for one night. The hotels are clean. Hot shower. TV in each room. No views. There is a computer right at the entrance which you can use any time of the day. The location is perfect. Very close to where the boats depart to Isla Ballesta tours. The breakfast was very simple, not great. I slept... More
