This place could be paradise but for a few issues that could very easily be fixed.
Pros: location - it's a minute from the beach; ambiance - hammocks everywhere and it's so peaceful during the day; food - the Belgian chef is excellent; and their two lo(i)vely dogs.
Cons: Mancora is mosquito-ridden so ask whether your room has mosquito nets (our first one, first room under the restaurant, did not) and we were eaten alive; the dorm room, which we were moved to has a serious plumbing problem and stank horribly; noise: there is a party venue down the road (not the camp's problem, I know) but bring ear plugs; luggage storage: if you need to leave luggage for a while after you've checked out, these are just left behind the reception desk - don't have anything loose or dangling. The dogs made off with a pair of shoes tied to the outside of one of our packs and chewed through part of the leather. As in the rest of the town, and in fact Peru, the dogs run free and did have a pop at a few people so if you're nervous of dogs bear that in mind.
