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!

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... More

Like a previous reviewer correctly stated, you do need to have a realistic set of expectations when travelling here in South America. This place is not club med (thank God) but here is what it has: the beautiful Pacific Ocean literally right in front of you, friendly and extremely helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, good food, free yoga, decent...

To appreciate this hotel, it is critical to arrive with a realistic set of expectations, which you will not get from looking at the pictures on the website. This is not a glamorous or refined hotel as you might assume from the sexy and shiny photographs. However, if you are in Mancora, one can assume that you are there for... More

I spent two weeks here less than a year ago and promised to leave a review but never seemed to have the time... however after recently speaking to my friends and family, reminiscing about my time in Peru, I couldn't stop thinking about this wonderful resort where I spent two weeks of bliss.

Exceptional service, an all around great experience. We took a meditation class with Laura aswell which was excellent, highly recommended.

I recently stayed at the Samana Chakra in September 2014 for almost a week. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for some peace and quiet. It's about a 10 minute walk to the center of action though you can easily get around with moto-taxis for no more than 3 Sols. It tends to be harder to get... More

Walking up and down the beach I couldn't find a better place to stay. We got there early in the season so For 5 of the 8 days we stayed there it was just us and the staff. They upgraded us to an ocean front villa because there wasn't anyone in the rooms so that was a nice bonus! The... More
