Beautiful beach; definitely Recommend

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Aug 2014via mobile
We stayed here (south of mancora) after a friend insisted we NOT stay in town. Thank goodness. Mancora is dirty, and the beaches are gross. Here, however, it's lovely. There is no garbage in the water or on the beach. The staff keeps up the grounds. The bungalows sit 50 yards from the ocean. My only "complaint " is that there are tiny , tiny ants that get in the room and on the bed. After inquiring at the front desk, my husband just used DEET and sprayed it around the window and doors where they were coming in. Another issue for some could be that the rooms have no insulation. Fortunately we had the very end unit, and our kids were next to us. But when they turned on their tv, I could actually here the words. So, it wasn't a problem for us, but if we had been in a center room, I would have been troubled by hearing from next door. However, I'm sensitive to noise. Overall, this is a great place to stay. It's about a 30 minute walk on the beach into town , or you can take a "taxi" for 5 soles. We got a little tired of eating hers, so we frequently went into town.

My husband and I spent 8 nights here and it was the just the thing we needed to relax before starting out the new year. The hotel is literally on the best stretch of beach on Las Pocitas (or Mancora chico) and all rooms were oceanfront. We stayed in the "matrimonial suite", really a king bed, and slept to the sound of waves. Room was on the older side but very clean and well-maintained. Also, the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was good, not mind-blowing but solid, and more importantly clean. Some of the Las Pocitas hotels, including this one, get their water from Tumbes. Meanwhile, we got ourselves a bad bit of food poisoning when we ventured into Mancora for a dinner out. Would definitely go again!

First time in Mancora and I'm glad I went to this hotel right on the beach. Nice rooms, they are all located facing the ocean where you can see whales with a litlle luck. The service was great and the staff were friendly and always helping to make your stay even better. The food was awesome from breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can always relax right outside your room, at the beach or the swimming pool. At night you can enjoy a nice conversation and drinks around the fire pit.

We were a big group of family and friends, all our rooms were oceanfront, rustic yet very comfortable, we had a tv, wifi and all had their own terrace in front with 2 chais and a hammock, it was so relaxing, we slept with the noise of the waves crashing as the only distraction:) Very clean, excelent service, good breakfast included, we had ceviche served to us on the sand, it was great. We walk all over the beach to the north and south, rented jets skys, you could ride horses at the beach, I would come back happily

Peru's beaches are not world class nor are they known for more than surfing and deep-sea fishing. However, if these activities or another reason take you to Peru's northern beaches, then Las Pocitas in Mancora is among your best bets.

Mancora has some of the best weather conditions in the region (warm waters from the El Niño current) and is less windy than Vilchayito, a beach south of Mancora. The waves are mostly knee high, except for high tide. The beach has soft sand and provides for miles of walking opportunities both ways. Plenty of palm trees create a tropical ambiance against a dry mountain backdrop.

While now Mancora counts with over a dozen good accommodation places, Las Pocitas offers the best balance. 22 rooms, all front row with direct access to the beach just a few meters away. 140mts of beach front and with enough beach so that even at high tide you have plenty of sand to lie on. (Note: most hotels in the area are too close to the water and don’t have a beach once high tide sets in! Las Pocitas and Puerto Palos are the few exceptions!). Abundant palm trees to provide a refreshing shade and a generous pool (a little “foggy” when we were there). The rooms are simple, yet clean and with all the basic amenities including hot water. The food is reasonable and priced accordingly.

A 20-minute walk north along the beach will take you to the port of Mancora, where you will find plenty of affordable restaurants and shops (mainly for tourists). Among the 2 best restaurants in the area and located just south of the port are: Cucina Amore at the 6 –room Sunset Hotel (good Italian yet quite expensive at about S/.110.00 per person without drinks) and Donde Teresa at the Hotel Hotelier (good Peruvian food, mid-price range).

Note that in the summer months (Dec – March) you’re likely to get short bursts of rainfall almost everyday and in the winter months you will need a windbreaker and light sweater for the evenings. The sun is very strong and you will need at least SPF 50!

Room tip: All rooms are on the ground floor and facing the beach.
