Great stay in Mancora Peru.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Dec 2023via mobile
We booked this hotel for three nights and liked it so much that we booked it for another five. It was a great location and great staff. Our go to man was José, who seemed to be working all the time, he checked us in, cooked us breakfast and was at the door to let us in when we came back from dinner at night. He always had a smile on his face and he spoke English. We had a balcony room overlooking the ocean and it was quiet while we were there. We had to change rooms a couple of times, because of staying longer, which was fine. Good wifi, and good service. We are not surfers and the day we checked out it filled up so there was a lot more stir. Our flight out was not until 19:30 and they provided us with a room to shower and change at no extra cost. The price was descent and it was a very positive experience for finishing up a five week trip to Peru.

Barry I would have no issue recommending this small hotel.

The best thing about the Don Giovanni is the location, otherwise it is a dump. It is right on the point at Mancora where you can watch the surfers and surf school students collide on the overcrowded waves from your balcony. That's about it, the hotel is very overpriced and offers little. When we checked in we were surprised to see a cat poo on the floor of our shower. Management quickly switched our room...to a dismal interior room with only one window high above that allowed the hotel lights to shine in at night. A terrible room.
We asked for a different room and even after the cat crap incident and the interior room they still charged us for the better triple room. Very unprofessional. Shower was weak and outdated in the room though we had a nice view from the balcony. WiFi worked. Breakfast was offered, simple fruit and fried egg but the staff was kind enough. There are no other offerings, the restaurant was closed and the "gelateria" non-existent. Stay elsewhere.

Room tip: Only rooms worth anything are the ones with the sea view. Rooms are mediocre at best but the view and sound of the waves is nice.

I traveled to Mancora alone for a week in hopes of taking surf lessons and relaxing on the beach. Don Giovanni is a great location because it is right on the beach and next to many surf lesson booths. However, it is not a luxurious hotel and I do not think it is meant to be. It is fairly clean and is great if you want your stay to contain just the basics.

On my first night, I arrived pretty late. The front desk was really kind and considerate in a familial way especially when they realized I was alone as a female. But shortly after checking in, I saw a roach in my room. The staff tried explaining that the exterminator comes monthly and would arrive the next day. Also, it is understandable that critters may get in because Don Giovanni has an open air design. It really was not the worst thing in the world but I personally just cannot do cockroaches. The next morning, I spoke to the front desk and they agreed to let me check out early and refund the other nights.

Now my biggest issue with Don Giovanni is the fact that they never refunded me. I spoke with employees over messaging and phone calls. I tried reaching out again once I arrived back into the States. Still, they never initiated the refund and in fact said they would not.

We stayed at Hotel Don Giovanni last Spring and it was by far the best location in Mancora.
The owner is very smart and knows how to handle each situation very well.
We will be back for sure!
Gracias!!

A nice hotel, the room had a beautiful view of the ocean and the beach. But, the service in the restaurant in the beach was awful! They took ages to give us the food, the drinks, and on top of all, the check, which we have asked for so many times but they ignored us until we threatened to go and come back to pay later.
