Beach, kite and chill. Looks like paradise!

Review of Samana Chakra
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Jun 2019via mobile
Very well located, at 10 min walking from the "city center". A nice and quiet place.
The atmosphere is very peaceful with a wonderful view to the beach that is in front of the hotel.
Enjoying the sunset and sleep with the sounds of the waves was an amazing experience for me.

The kite school is so good, with many instructors. Many options are available, if there is no wind in Mancora, they take you by car to others spots much more windy!!!
For the same price!

The breakfast is very nice and tasty and the chef's meals were delicious.

I definitely recommend it!

We stayed there for 5 nights to do kite surfing and it was perfect. The staff is very very friendly, they take care of you. The bungalow is perfect, cleaned every day with an outside bathroom !! Very very cool.

The pool is great to swim and you are just in front of the beach.

We definitely recommend it!!!

About the nicest people you'll meet in Peru work right here, tight sale yoga or just chill in a safe place surrounded by people who care large rooms open-air bathroom with hot water, gentle rain showers. Everybody went so out of their way even the kitchen made adjustments to suit my picky needs without so much as one complaint. You'll be delighted at how clean the rooms are. So if you're looking for a place to relax or learn to kitesurf this is definitely it

We stayed for about a week and really enjoyed our stay! It's located directly at the beach with a pool and breathtaking sunsets. The bungalows are clean, beds really comfortable and the outdoor bathroom was amazing! It's only a 5 min. Walk along the beach from downtown Mancora. But still far enough to be able to relax if you are not in the party mood. What made our stay so special was the great staff at the hotel. They organized a cool BBQ for us, and were just so nice about everything!! Luis, the hotel manager, made sure we had everything we needed and more! They have a great facility to do yoga and offer high quality yoga classes with a really lovely yoga teacher!
All in all I can only recommend to stay here. I travel a lot and our stay here really stood out as the best in Peru! Thank you for that!

The place is beautiful and contrary to what it says here, they did have bungalows available.
Loved the tranquility and privacy. The breakfast and attention was exceptional.
Definitely coming back! Next time to learn some Kitesurfing!

Room tip: definitely worth paying for the ocean front rooms, although it might get chilly at night.

Reviewed 10 February 2016

We stayed here for one night and there were many nice aspects (the staff, the food, the pool) but for what we paid $90/night for a Sunday night it just wasn't worth it. I also would suggest they provide fans to guests because neither of us could sleep because there was no air-flow and it was so hot and humid but if you open the doors and windows all the way the mosquito were so thick (yes we used the mosquito nets but that also makes it more stuffy). Also we both really need wi-fi for work (we know this is a retreat place) but there is no wi-fi or TV's in the rooms (just wi-fi in the main common area) so not an ideal place unless you are wanting to do yoga and meditate. Just an FYI.

Room tip: Definitely get a cabin ocean front or you will suffocate from the heat.
