This place was a relaxing get away after a week traveling around northwestern Peru. This area of Peru does not have much to offer in the way of luxury or beautiful scenery. However, this resort had everything you would expect in a contemporary environment, closely connected with the outdoors. Still, as I have noticed here and throughout my travels in... More

We picked Vichayito because we saw the bungalows on stilts in the photos and wanted to stay in one of those overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately for us our travel agent booked us in one of the bungalows de cana. There is a big difference between the two types of rooms and to make things worse the bungalow that we were... More

My boyfriend and I found this place after suffering a night down the beach at Aquarena. This place was heaven! I loved everything about it! The beach has chairs and covered areas as well as a bar. The idea of a tent seemed odd but you walk in and feels like a luxury hotel room with satellite tv, huge comfy... More

We stayed at Vichayito because we thought that "glamping" would be fun and something unusual. The tent was very comfortable and hearing the surf all night was very relaxing. As other reviewers have mentioned, the resort could use some maintenance. Some areas need some love or a thorough cleaning. But the beach is lovely with plenty of lounger chairs and... More

To start with, we had ordered and confirmed a taxi from the hotel to pick us up at the airport but waited and there was none waiting for us. We called the hotel and they said they forgot and will send one. We knew it was a long ride to the hotel so decided to take the last available taxi... More

The first time I stayed here I really loved this place, but it was two years ago... Now the hotel looks like out of budget for maintenance, food quality and services could be better also, but personnel are very nice. Probably it would be found a better accommodation at similar price. However, me and my wife enjoyed every one of... More

Vichayito is a perfect place to get away for a few days, enjoy the sun and relax. After your visit to the highlights of northern Peru and before crossing the border into Ecuador, you might want to spend a few days here, Take a mototaxi to nearby backpackers town of Mancora and in season look for whales in the ocean...

Lovely resort with a fab beach. Food is plentiful and excellent. Staff, so friendly and kind. However, no room service, so no coffee before 8am; internet only at the main desk and slow. Beware families with small children who cry in the night. Reluctantly, because it is a great escape, we left a day early because we'd had two sleepless... More
