After a long four week trek from La Paz to Lima, we wanted a week on the beach and I had heard great things about Mancora. We found CasaBarco on the internet and were swayed by the great photos and reviews.

After a rather bumpy motor-taxi ride to the hotel were just stunned by the view our chalet had in the grounds. Beyond a lawn with hammocks lay a beautiful infinity pool and beyond that was the beach and the sea. It took us an hour or so just to soak it in.

As we were there, sunning ourselves we watched pelicans and scissor-tails flying overhead and then caught sight of movement off the coast- a school of Humpback Whales. Unbelievable.

Emilio and his staff were fantastic and really made the experience even more special. Breakfast is included and is cooked for you and for a small price they will buy in some fresh fish from the market and make you lunch. Emilio speaks a little English, but you might want to bring the phrasebook.

The hotel is 15 minutes ride from Mancora central and this lends itself to being a very peaceful stay. There are a couple of really good restaurants either side of the hotel if you're feeling peckish for ceviche or Italian.

The hotel itself is beautifully decorated with murals and artwork, is very modern and has free internet access. The weather in August is clear and hot, but a strong breeze picks up for the afternoon. This isn't a problem, as the palm trees in the garden reduce the wind and make it very pleasant. There are also opportunities to go whale whale watching with Pacifico Adventures, which we did on the last day and saw a mother and calf frolicking.

All in all, this is well worth the visit. It was the the perfect end to a perfect trip.

Room Tip: Take one of the bungalow chalets, as they have the best views.

stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2011 with a friend. Very good manager but slightly wayward staff, who seemed rasther forgetful at times - i.e no plates at breakfast, always asked for coffee refills, faulty battery holders on teh safe etc. However it was all done with a smile and its such a nice location with a lovely pool, lots of interesting art and very secure. I would definitely go again but avoid rooms below near the swimming pool boiler room where the noise was a bit intrusive.

The hotel is nice but the noise is terrible. They have a neighbor who plays music all night long and they can't handle it because he is a military. DONT COME TO THIS HOTEL! YOU WONT SLEEP A WHOLE NIGHT! Even Mirella, the manager of this hotel, could not manage this. You have better options to find in the web, here you won't sleep.

We both came here for our honeymoon. We only have positive things to say about Casabarco. The setting was romantic, the hotel was warm and inviting and the staff were friendly and kind. The breakfasts were awesome, best bread in Peru. The owner was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure we were doing great. Thanks Filix and everyone at Casabarco. Don't forget your sunscreen, the sun is intense!

What a beautiful and relaxing place. It is not easy to get to but perhaps that is why it is so beautiful, quiet and unspoiled. We got very good service at reasonable rates. We really loved walking the beaches - the water is warm and there is a beautiful mix of beach and rocks. The waves crash on the rocks and tidal pools full of ocean life are left behind.

We enjoyed our 10-day-stay at CasaBarco very much: very smooth and friendly staff, excellent view on the sea, very delicious food!

Its a kind of family atmosphere there. The house is decorated with many works of art (pictures, sculptures, floor, etc.) made by the owner, very nice! The staff is very relaxed. The cook makes very good original Peru food to adequate prices. By tuck-tuck, you go in 4 minutes to the center of Mancora for ca. 1 Euro. To the beach its 20 seconds down the little "hill". But also the nice and high-quality pool (with jacuzzi) offers a fantastic view to the pacific. We experienced the most beautiful sunsets there. Check out the pictures at Facebook!

All in all, we liked it 100% at CasaBarco and can absolutely recommend this lovely place.
