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.
Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
