It's by far the best option to sleep in Pacasmayo, specially if you like surfing, kite surfing or wind surfing. But the "resort" in it's name doesn't correspond to the facilities: - Very poor Wi-fi quality. Very challenging to get connected. - Breakfast is terrible. Minimum itens (coffee, milk, bread, butter, jelly). - no air conditioning in the accomodation Hotel... More

We arrived on the eve of Easter 2015 around 10 pm and the employee in charge was very nice. He got us water, ice and coke for drinks. We were the first of the Easter vacationeers to arrive and hence got what I think was the best room. The view of the ocean and city lights was awesome, the sound... More

Although it has the best view in Pacasmayo it is an expensive hotel for what they offer. Simple rooms and average cuisine but friendly and helpful staff. Moto taxi service can take you surfing or to town, where a nice boardwalk is located and there are some good restaurants. Nice swimming pool. Worth to try. For your comfort bring some... More

Closest spot for surfing and kite surfing. They have a moto taxi to take you to the point and launch you if you want. Rooms were pretty clean with good views. Breakfast is the same as everywhere so it should not be a surprise when you get eggs bread coffee and juice. A bit pricey and we were quoted one... More

El Faro is the only place you'll want to stay at in Pacasmayo if you're visiting for a kitesurfing holiday. It's right next to where you'll end your session (very convenient). It's also the closest hotel to the main surf point, but note that it is a long walk - 15 minutes, at least. Staff are friendly and the breakfast... More

This was by far our worst experience in Peru...filthy bed sheets, room full of wildlife, unfriendly staff and terrible breakfast.. We booked this hotel because we thought it was right on the surfing/kitesurfing spot "el faro" but it's a 10 min walk to go there anyway, so it's better to stay in town, there are hotels that seem far much...

The site is lovely and the staff is welcoming but the hotel is overpriced. We expected better for the price we paid. Rates published on their website (July 2011) are preceded by the dollar symbol but there is no reference to what type of dollar they refer. This is confusing as they do not display an equivalent in Peruvian Soles... More

Knowing there was a marathon happening in the area in July, I made reservations back in January. Two weeks before my scheduled arrival, I received an email stating that they gave my room away because the event wanted to centralize more of its participants there. When I reminded them I had a reservation, they basically said too bad, they wanted... More

Went to Pacasmayo for a surf trip with my son, brother, and friend. This is the 2nd time I stayed at Hotel El Faro, and it was incredible. Right on the beach, 10 minutes from the point for surfing, food was excellent, service was excellent, a real great value. Pacasmayo is a really charming city, with a lot of great... More
