“Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

A group of 7 friends and I stayed here in late April. The waves were fantastic with a solid swell and Chicama lived up to it's surf spot reputation. The hotel is wonderful with extremely attentive and friendly staff, great rooms, delicious meals and an excellent facility and process for storing boards and wetsuits. I would highly reccommend it. Staff members that really stand out include Raphaell, Favio, Pedro, Santos, Percy and all the restaurant staff. This hotel makes an effort to give back to the local community which is reflected in the staff, you feel like familiy. Some friendly suggestions for the hotel: use a central water treatment facility and reusable containers for drinking water to eliminate plastic bottle pollution and upgrade the Internet connection. When the hotel gets full the system gets overloaded with logins and a connection is impossible.

Room Tip: Any of the upstairs rooms are best as they have a view of the beach and surf. Downstairs rooms open...

The management, staff, service, amenities, food and overall cleanliness and beauty of this resort will bring us back and allow us to recommend it to anyone, young or old, surfer or not. This was hands down the best surf trip, not just for the waves, but for the ease of managing our gear, wetsuits, and arranging great day trips. Surfboards, board bags, leashes and wetsuits could all be neatly and safely valet stored in the well ventilated, organized board locker room with 24 hour on site security. I loved the fact that I could take a hot shower seconds after entering the resort after a surf and wash my self and wetsuit in a spacious locker room then take my wetsuit next door to hang it up in the open air wetsuit hangers labelled with each guest's room number. The place caters to surfers every need. The zodiac boat service team was spot on, never missing a surfer as we rode waves for hundreds of yards distant to our takeoff spots. The boat drivers were very safety oriented, super stoked for us and equipped with Go Pro cameras to document those legendary minute plus long lefts that we rode. Not once did they complain about hauling our weary bodies into the boat with longboards and short boards. No matter how many waves we surfed.
The manager Miguel Vegas Van Ordt is legendary and runs the place with tremendous team spirit. He planned some fun day trips for our group and even accompanied us one day keeping everyone laughing, eating safely, and hitting the surf on the best tides, while sharing his vast knowledge of the history and culture of Peru. His van driver Jorge is outstanding!
The resort rooms and common areas, and grounds, were clean and beautiful. The dining area was always stocked with coffee, tea, cocoa and cookies and the service and main meals were outstanding. The large fireplace added cozy ambience and the views of that gorgeous coastline and point break are breathtaking. Great beach for hiking as well. Go there!

Wonderful place to surfing, with waves that do not ever stop even when it seems that the sea is flat!. The staff is pretty patient, careful and attentive to the details of a proper care. Great food and drinks ... Perfect facilities. The tow back service is essential and very good.. I'm planning to be back soon

Room Tip: Try get the ocean view rooms!

I was there with some friends on a surf trip. Unforgettable experience, thanks to the Chicama waves and the great hotel.
The staff is fantastic and will do anything to make you feel at home and comfortable. They seem really genuinely nice, not artificially like in some other places.
The structure is surprising and you can bring your family with you and they will have a good time too. Next time I will bring my wife.
Miguel, Fabio, Percy, Alexi, Pedro and all the other people I forgot the names (sorry) made our stay really great.
The food is very good, bedrooms are comfortable, warm jacuzzi after surf is great. We just relaxed and enjoyed.

Room Tip: Ocean view, if you can. If Chicama is breaking you can watch it for hours from your room.

This place is great. If you are coming to surf, you will get it all. Boat service, a board room to suit up and wax, gym style hot showers when you get out of the water.

If you are bringing your wife or girlfriend, she will give it a nod too. Infinity pool, indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, spa, and bar. The restaurant does Peruvian hearty, light, and healthy. The rooms, bedding, and bath are all top notch. I am a business traveler also so I stay at plenty of top notch hotels in big towns across the globe and I can tell you this place is legit.

The staff is what puts this place over the top. They are a mix of surfers and locals and they can bro down in the surf but also provide professional and friendly service, no matter how small your special request. We had a problem getting a board there and they went out of their way to help, including driving us into the next town to get some legal services.

Can't wait to go back.

We had an amazing experience at Chicama Surf Hotel & Spa. The property is beautiful with garden view rooms and ocean view rooms - both have outside patio spaces with chairs to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Rooms are super spacious and beautiful with wood floors and a great ambiance :) The hotel has everything you would need for a relaxing few days (or longer) away. Spa/Sauna, jacuzzi, pool, game room with pingpong, billards, TV, DVDs, they also have a surf shop with rentals and 2-hour surf lessons for only $25 which was a great deal.

The staff is very helpful, friendly, and pleasant to be around, and the breakfast was AWESOME! Breakfast included omlettes, eggs, bacon, fruits, pancakes, sandwiches, and french toast... giving you lots of energy to get out and surf afterwards. Lunch and dinner options are good too, although there are other local places nearby if you are looking for something different. Happy hour was a nice touch as well.

The best was having the jacuzzi/pool overlooking the beach and ocean. No better way to watch the sunset after a day out in the water.

Thanks especially to Miguel for his hospitality - he truly welcomed us to his hotel and made us feel at home. I can't wait to go back someday :)
