I was there for four days and enjoyed it a lot. It is located near the beach and the urban area; nevertheless, it is quiet and safe. My room was big enough and comfortable. It's quite affordable and has everything you may need.
Thank you for the Trip! Was really Nice place to live. Is nearby the beach and not so far from the sentrum. The rooms are also clean when we arrived. Perfect IF you want to relax and have a quite time with your family.
The service very good.The bungalow is cleaned daily and the sheets interdiario. Most restaurants nearby, we arrived walking in 5 minutes and the beach about 80 meters, 2 minutes walking! We were able to make bonfires, barbecue and we bathed in the pool until 1 am. Excellent!
A week resting, enjoying the beach, the pool, the breakfasts and the market. cool. a place to return. the owners are very good people. attentive and cordial.The hotel is very well located, one block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. The Bungalows are clean, safe, quiet and have wi-fi. In addition the breakfast is punctual and very rich. Good people :)
Stayed here only for one night and regret that I couldn't stay longer. Excellent place for everyone. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is also nice. Breakfast is good. I honestly recommend!
Really very nice accommodation. I was in Suite Pez Espada, and I come from Norway. I will recommend this lodging to my friends. The treatment of the owner very good. Pool and bungalow clean, very close to the beach and above all .. no noise! total tranquility! Beautiful!
Nice, clean rooms. Quiet, nice pool and relaxing spaces. Recommend for a good family time and beach goers. Good simple breakfast, cheap rates for the area for this kind of accommodation. Mancora is very nice
We traveled with or 2 year old niece and had a great time. She really enjoyed the pool. The "Estrella de Mar" bungalow is nice, well equipped and clean. We asked for a mosquitero which was kindly provided on request. Also, the owner made sure we had a great time! She even took us to the market so we would´t be overcharged. You´ve been great Melva, thank you!! We recommend the Ñuro turtle tour as well. It is much cheaper the way she recommends it. We will definitely return!!
I stayed here in January 2014. Here are my thoughts: PROs: - friendly owner, staff on-site 24 hours - the owner/manager accepts dollars or soles as payment (credit surcharge) - the owner explained the lay of the land and warnings for the first-time traveler. This was my 2nd visit to Mancora, so I was familiar with what she was explaining, and felt her advice was accurate and helpful. - free typical breakfast included (fresh rolls and jam, papaya juice, coffee or tea) - private cabana with toilet and large shower with hot water in one small room, and the sink in the main room, which turned out to be quite convenient - mini fridge, tv with remote, small closet with hangers and 2 drawers - very comfortable memory foam double bed - quieter location at the edge of town, farther away from the club music that thumps until 5am - two blocks from the beach and direct beach access - the soothing sound of ocean waves can be heard, especially from the hammock on the porch - small "living room" area with rug, small wicker chair and loveseat set - porch area has a chair, hammock, porch light, and is enclosed by a picket fence that many guests use to dry beach towels and clothes - cabana double doors open to the porch and a nice, light ocean breeze - cabana privacy: about 6 or 8 individual cabanas with about 4 feet between neighbors - large lot: the huge lot is secluded on all sides by a perimeter wooden fence about 8 feet high - the front gate was closed at night (although anyone can enter by pulling the wire), but I felt my privacy and items were secure day and night - security: the on-site care-taker, though none too friendly, was diligent about making sure only authorized guests entered the property; he was visible on the grounds all day, and made rounds every few hours at night. CONs: - Mosquitos have access to the cabana 24/7 through small rips in the screens and areas that weren't sealed - in my cabana, the electrical currents ran through the bathroom fixtures; therefore, I had to adjust the shower head BEFORE showering, and not touch it during a shower, and had to use a dry towel to turn off the water in order to avoid a jarring shock (this would have been helpful information to include in the manager's welcome speech) - sink water was hot, but the shower water varied from hot to lukewarm, which didn't matter as much, as Mancora is known for its warm weather year-round - the Wi-Fi signal was very weak, slow, and inconsistent, which is common in any lower-end motel or hostel in town or on the edge of town, particularly in high season (the only signal that could be relied upon were in some of the higher end hotels on the opposite side of town and Victor's Surf Shop restaurant, located on Las Positas Beach) - It was impossible to connect to the Wi-Fi at all during the day when my cabana neighbors were staying in their cabanas all day using multiple devices - In high season (December, January), the majority of travelers are Peruvian seeking an escape; they aren't as interested in sight-seeing, and often remain in their rooms all day and night. As a result, it can be loud during the day as guests talk, laugh, fight (siblings), and drink. At this particular location, it only bothered me when I wanted to catch a quick nap between activities. - this is not beachfront property. The expensive hotels across the street were beachfront properties. In addition, the high wall surrounding this property would prevent any beach view had there been one - the property lot is rather desolate, devoid of landscaping, save a rock-lined path to the cabanas in the otherwise bare dirt lot - the property is located deep within the "red zone" - a more darkly lit section of town among the housing of the locals - seedier, can be dangerous to walk alone at night. If you take a moto-taxi whenever you leave or return, you will have no problems. Cost: 5 soles each way, or 50 cents. I am a single, white, female and had no problems walking down a main road frequently traveled by walkers and moto-taxis to and from the center of town at all hours. However, I stayed in the light, walked with purpose, and did not walk while intoxicated. I did walk all other roads in the daytime, in the center of the roads, without any problems. IN SUM, these are not luxury, beachfront cabanas with amenities. But for the same price as a small room in the heart of the lively and noisy town, I felt this was a comfortable and more private option. During my first trip to Mancora, I stayed in a pricey beachfront property (Hotelier) on the opposite edge of town; while I would not trade that first stay for anything, I decided as a return visitor that I wanted something cheaper, as I wouldn't be spending too much time in the room. This place was perfect for that, and I would stay here again if I ever return to Peru. Happy travels!…
