DCO is an oasis of tranquility and privacy that is in connection with its natural environment. It also offers special characteristics and unique services like no other: the Gourmet Restaurant DCO, the terrace and beach Lounge, and the couple SPA at best Asian style. The hotel is so stunning, so individual, so undeniably designer. It's a destination in its own right!

An excellent escape from the cold weather on Lima. It is a small boutique hotel, super cute, great views, great service. Got spoiled by the employees. Specially by Jorge. Will visit again. Located just in the right place in Mancora. Restaurant offers excellent food

What a wonderful surprise! Absolutely beautiful from the front desk to the room to the beach. Service is excellent. Attention to detail in all things…drinks, food, massages, employees, discretion. We will come back hopefully and experience it all again! Thank you all for a magical time after climbing Inca trail to Macchu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Just what we needed❤️

Oh my gosh what a dream DCO is. I would give them a 6 star review if allowed. What a fantastic location perched right on the beach. There are other great lodges I am sure but if looking for rest, relaxation and to be taken care of there can be no better. The service here is beyond exceptional. Jorge, Pedro, Dianna and the entire staff took the best care of us we could have ever imagined. We were there for an extended stay and we did feel like family by the time we left. The food is really really good and they will go over the top to try and accommodate any wants/needs you may have. Location is far enough away from Mancora to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beach but close enough to walk along the beach (just under an hour) or take a quick Moto to town. Also the ocean at DCO was usable, with almost no rocks in the water right in front of the hotel (you still need to be careful) we were in the ocean every day. This is a small hotel so if looking for lots of socializing etc as noted just down the beach is Arrenas and it is definitely bigger and surely more people but during Covid we wanted to avoid a lot of people. What a gem this hotel is though it is really all about the staff who work there.

We went with our two adult daughters and had a wonderful three days. Mostly the others were couples but we still felt very at home as family group. Everything was fantastic with outstanding rooms, exceptional service at the front desk, restaurant and truly wonderful extremely fresh seafood. It was without doubt the best food we had at any hotel that we have stayed at in Peru. We particularly enjoyed lomo Norteño, Brochette de atún con pulpo, Sudado de pescado. It's a great location on the beach although need to be a bit careful with the sea because the waves can suddenly get quite big and powerful. Will have to go back when things get back to normal

ALERT: Keep the body gel they give you complimentary! I have no idea what they put in it, but I use it on my face as a moisturizer. Every single time I use it, I always get comments that my face is glowing. COMPARED TO ARRENAS: I also stayed in Arrenas during my same trip to Mancora. I would say that if you want a more intimate experience, less people, and more quiet, then go to DCO. If still want a beautiful hotel but would like to see more people around, bring your family, have more space in your room, or larger grounds to walk around on, then stay at Arrenas. Both hotels are incredibly hospitable but have fairly different themes. DCO is an absolute dream, exemplary customer service. The moment I walked in, I was greeted by the welcoming staff and relieved of all my bags. Every room has a stunning view and balcony. When I walked into my room, I was greeted with champagne, fruit, and chocolate. The atmosphere is incredibly serene as it fairly secluded.The design has a cool feel and every aspect is meant to channel relaxation. During my stay, it felt as if everything was centered around me. The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. The food was some of the best food I had in Mancora and Lima. However, I will say this. I am not sure if all the rooms are the same size but my room was on the smaller side. It was gorgeous. But still fairly small. LOCATION: DCO is a little far off from the center of Mancora, 2.5 miles to be exact. If you want to take surf lessons, you will need to take a motor from the hotel. You could also run along the beach and get to Mancora center easily and it is a gorgeous run. PRICE: DCO is about $200 US dollars a night. In my opinion, it is worth it if you want a relaxing and smooth experience.

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights during our honeymoon in Peru. We had a beautiful room that had a balcony with a great view of the ocean. The hotel itself was also gorgeous and the staff were all very friendly/attentive. They even gave us a little beach tote with some stuff for our honeymoon. Overall, we had a lovely experience at DCO.

After hosting our families for a large wedding celebration in Lima, our honeymoon to Mancora was the perfect way to press “pause” and slow down the happiest days of our life.  One of the most special wedding gifts we received was a four-night stay at the D.C.O. Resort and Spa at Playa Las Pocitas in Mancora.  The entire team at the DCO Resort and Spa went above and beyond our expectations to create the perfect environment for our visit. We landed in Talara airport in an impossibly romantic propeller airplane from Lima and were greeted with the friendliest airport pickup greeters from the DCO Resort.  Once we arrived at the lush, highly manicured DCO Resort and Spa estate along the beach, we were shown to our room, the Master Suite, complete with a jacuzzi bathtub and open-air shower overlooking a private terrace out to the sea.  From the moment we unpacked, the staff showered us with spa gifts, fresh fruit, decadent treats and delicious cocktails. We are normally big adventure travelers, but having just thrown the wedding, we needed every single minute to recap all the details and special moments.  We only left the property once because the atmosphere, amenities and outstanding customer service kept us entertained and supremely satisfied for the entire stay.  When we were not lounging by the luxurious pool area, we were perusing the beach library or walking the expansive sandy beach that hugs the DCO Resort. On our last evening at DCO Resort and Spa, we booked a sunset couple’s massage that started with a steam bath and ended with a jacuzzi hot tub and a fresh bottle of chilled champagne.  For dinner, the staff set up a fine dining display on the beach complete with white tablecloths and a romantic walkway and heart shaped perimeter marked with candles.  Needless to say, we listened to the seashell windchimes and ocean waves all night, wishing it would never end. If you are looking to create a special memory, the DCO Resort and Spa is a perfect slice of luxury beachside to the natural beauty of Peru.

After months of research for our 20 year anniversary trip to Peru, we settled on a week in Mancora at DCO Suites. We spent the week prior hiking the Inca Trail, so when we finally got to the rest and relaxation part of our adventure, we had such high expectations. Paula at the front desk welcomed us with champagne and chocolate strawberries and said Leave everything to us, time for you to relax...I about cried. Our entire week was amazing, from the morning coffee on the terrace watching the ocean, to the quiet walks along the pristine beachline to the bustling town of Mancora and then taking a motor taxi (tuk-tuk) back to our quiet piece of heaven. Every single member of their staff is just outstanding. Their service is the best we've received anywhere. The food in their restaurant is out of this world. We had so many items for lunch and dinner and all of it was perfection. The sesame crusted tuna over risotto was our favorite. Every morning was this French toast that I looked forward to when I went to bed the night before, and always the fruit salad with delicious fresh fruit. We also had a couples massage which included a turn in their sauna, and a soak in the Jacuzzi with a bottle of champagne. What a luxury and oh so worth it! We can't say enough about this place. It was the saddest day when we had to check out. Oh, and we wanted to stay an extra night and Paula worked scheduling magic and made it happen on the fly! For a couple celebrating a milestone such as 20 year of marriage, this is the pampering we were looking for, and we got it in spades at this little piece of paradise. Thank you to Paula, and all the staff at DCO for helping us make memories for a lifetime.

I went for 4 nights to celebrate my birthday and was extremely surprised and satisfied with the service. They really go out of their way to please you in every need. The staff is super friendly. The accomodations are great, especially the big terrace each room has overlooking the beach. You can see one of the most beautiful sunsets from there. It is a small hotel, around 8 rooms so everything is smooth and relaxing and nothing crowded at all. It was quite a surprise they give you a kit to go to the beach, with a pareo and after sun lotion, it simplifies everything. The food was spectacular and I think we tried almost all the items on the menu. It was great that you can order anything from the menu at anytime and they will serve you on the beach, on the pool area or in your private terrace. The service is outstanding, they were always offering their services. They realized we enjoyed a cup of natural lemongrass tea after our dinner, and even when we didn't ask for it they offered it to us. A special treat was cleaning our sunglasses daily at the beach with a mixed lotion that left them clean of all lotion and sand. The spa was a great experience overall, we enjoyed it thoroughly and overall it was a great relaxing stay, at one of the most beautiful beaches and with a really outstanding service from all the staff. I will definitely recommend it at return someday.

The staff were great, and we had an issue upon arrival of a bag not making it from the cab to the hotel. The manager/owner(?) was very helpful in the recovery of the bag by following up with the cab company, and she made sure we got it back after 2 calls. The hotel itself is superb, and having only 7 rooms makes it a greater experience as you have a lot of space to yourself. The lounge chairs are really comfortable. I've stayed at a lot of airbnbs, hotels, and accomodations throughout Latin America, and this was my favourite. The price is reasonable. The food is outstanding. The spa is absolutely unreal. Ensure that you book a massage! The penthouse view is amazing (seen from the spa). The beach is not a real swimming beach, but the water is fun to stand in. The waves are too big to swim, but Mancora is just a short $2-3 ride away. Despite the big waves, you have a lot of beach space to yourself. We had a great time here and it was a fantastic way to end our vacation in Peru. The only thing, if I had to be picky, was that the room was a bit small and there was no minibar. That said it was big enough, and the staff kept our drinks cool for us which we appreciated. We flew via Talara. If I visit Peru again, I will definitely stay again at DCO.
