Antonio and Fiorella run a very intimate , cozy place. They serve excellent food , fresh and tasty ! Very clean , new and spacious rooms. Place is very quiet at the beach of San Bartolo with great view. A very good option to enjoy a nice stay. Take a walk around the area and enjoy the surroundings nearby the beach.

Room Tip: Choose room near the beach .Surfers will enjoy nearby breaks like Punta rocas and others in adition...

I booked Penascal Surf Hotel for 3 nights in August. Antonio and Fioriella were a dream team. They made me feel very comfortable from the beginning of the trip to the very end. They went above and beyond as hosts and I got a taste of Peruvian hospitality at its best. I went for a deal which included 3 nights accomodation and full board in a double room. The room was amazing with really comfortable bed and views of the ocean. I had some of the best food in my life at Penascal. Fioriella cooked the most amazing Peruvian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Antonio took me out surfing every day and was very patient in the winter time pacific ocean. Antonio also went out of his way to sort me out with a hammock, which I highly recommend! Overall my time at Penascal was super chilled out, with wonderful food, amazing hosts and perfect surfing for all levels. It is the perfect get away if you want to get out of Lima. Enjoy!

I stayed at Penascal Surf Hotel for a week... there were waves everyday that you could walk to, great food for every meal, and a really nice atmosphere. Can't wait to go back and explore some of the nearby point breaks!

Just got back to Hawaii from my first surf trip to Peru. The Penascal Surf Hotel exceeded all of my expectations. The location was excellent, The Hotel/Hostel was beautifully maintained and furnished, and the food was excellent. Antonio and his family were so hospitable and kind. Can't wait to come back and spend time there again soon.

Room Tip: There is an ocean from room if you can get it. Otherwise the living room and oceanfront lanai will s...

Awesome place, newly renovated, surf right in front, and nair the maid keeps the place spotless. What makes this place even better is the restaurant quality food! Antonio's wife has clearly done chef training, and the food here was phenomenal. Cheers Antonio for an awesome week, I would definatly recommend this place.

The family was very hospitable and we enjoyed our time in this sleepy beach town but we did not get what we signed up for. The surf hotel itself was being remodeled so they put us up in a hostel about 15 mins away from their place. It was still ocean front and wasn't a bad place but they never communicated to us this change and it was quite clear that this remodel had been going on for quite some time and shouldn't have been a surprise.

They were also about 30 minutes late picking us up from the airport and didn't apologize about the delay when they arrived, after which time it took us a while to get to the town because they ran several errands during this time.

The town was nice and quaint, pretty deserted in June but it's their winter so we weren't expecting huge crowds. All in all, it was a pleasant enough stay but I wouldn't stay again if I were to return to Lima.

BUT we reserve 2 double room with private bathroom and they give us 2 rooms without private WC and 1 room was double but the other was twin without any window :( We were very desapointed but we decided to stay because the place and the hospitality.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view to ocean.
