Arennas Mancora is one of a multitude of charming beachside resorts lining the northwest coast of Peru. It lies 20 minutes southwest of Mancora, a thriving tourist destination that many Peruvians escape to during the summer months for its sandy beaches, lively water sports and pleasant atmosphere. What makes this hotel particularly appealing is the fact that it’s set away from the often busy town and is decidedly peaceful and relaxed as a result. The town and all its amenities and attractions are still within easy reach.
The bedrooms are in keeping with the hotel's modern, chic and upmarket character. They offer plenty of space and a number of amenities to ensure a comfortable and hassle-free stay. Each room has a view of either the seafront or the hotel’s lush, attractive gardens, and some even have their own peaceful, private deck from which to take in the captivating views. There are 22 air conditioned rooms altogether and amenities common to them all include an LCD TV with satellite channels, complimentary toiletries and a minibar. The design is contemporary, sophisticated and fairly minimalistic; many rooms have large glass windows to let in more natural light.
The hotel’s Gourmet Restaurant offers an array of both Peruvian and international dishes. Breakfast is served buffet-style, while lunch and dinner are served a la carte. Visitors can relax on the beach, go for lengthy coastal walks and enjoy all manner of water-based activities; surfing and kitesurfing are especially popular, as are fishing, scuba diving and whale watching. Conveniently enough, the beach is just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Leisurely horse rides on the beach are also a popular pastime. The nearby town of Mancora has a variety of places to eat and drink, with a good number of shops and plenty of opportunities for water sports as well. Back at the hotel, there’s an outdoor swimming pool with views of the beach and ocean, a bar and a lounge for relaxing after a long day of exploring the local area.
Children are very welcome to stay at the hotel, and while there are no particular child-oriented facilities on offer, the pool and nearby beaches will no doubt keep youngsters well entertained.
Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
