We had an amazing 4-night stay at Vichayito. Unspoiled beaches, friendly staff and an extremely relaxing experience. We stayed in one of the Carpas (tent) suites, that was 10-steps from the beach (we counted). Don't let the "tent" fool you, this is luxury accommodations: Air Conditioning, King Sized bed, separate bathtub and shower, TV with DirecTV. It was a three-room... More

Nice location on the beach, with a swimming pool. We walked the beach, loved the sunsets. It was fun playing ping pong with my wife. Used the computers next to check in to stay in touch. We had fun. Our tent had a bad smell to it that gave my wife head aches. We asked that housekeeping or tentkeepers not... More

2 single girls stayed here for 4 nights. Lovely carpas on the beach, clean and well maintained. Food very nice and good portions. Miguel the manager really looked after us and spoke good english. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet relaxing break. Tips: take mosquito repellent and the basics of spanish. Wifi not good at all.

The staff was very friendly and the family bungalow outstanding. Pool and beach areas very good but I would suggest to put some extra focus on the meals, considering the prices were extremely high. ceviche was not good at all during the week. Vichayito is a paradise!

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

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
