I have stayed in dozens of hotels in Peru and never have I have I seen worse quality for price. They say you get what you pay for, but in this case it's one of the priciest places in the area and I thought I was paying for something really nice, but I guess I wasn't. If this hotel wants... More

I agree with lima5678 that this hotel is in dire need of a change of management. It has the basics to be a great beachfront property, but a lack of leadership and care undermines this. First, the positives: - the location right on the beach is beautiful, and we spent many happy hours in the sea. It is about a... More

We stayed here for 6 days in the off-season in March, fully aware that it was a fair distance from any shops or other infrastructure - and we were more than satisfied.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. *Unfriendly employees. Actually witnessed the manager being ugly to staff. Never even bothered to acknowledge us. *Good food at the restaurant when it's open, but if they have chicken, they're out of beef and if they have fish they're out of avocados. *Grounds are unkept, The pool seemed like a giant petri...

We got a package for 2 nights through Groupon. The hotel is very hard to get and their facilities and food are not good enough to use them the whole day. So you will probably need to drive or take a mototaxi (around 15 minutes from the restaurants, banks a others) more than once per day. But the worst part... More

They had trouble finding my reservation, limited hours for serving meals at the restaurant, limited options from the menu, pool small for all the people at the hotel. Playground needs maintenance urgently. A lot of flies at restaurant tables.
