With a blue colour theme throughout the property, Hotel Maresta Lodge in Chimbote tempts guests with an outdoor pool, free Wi-Fi and free American breakfast. I had previously stayed in this place and found it to be one of the best in Chimbote compared to most on Booking.com The room we chose had two double beds, big, AC and a big shower. Breakfast is included in the price and parking too. The hotel is about 12km from Chimbote city centre. So, having a car is a plus or you can get a colectivo, from the main avenue on either side of the hotel to the city centre for less than $1. Places to visit "Cerro de la paz" you can get a full view of the city and also some beaches near the hotel called "Playa Viento" or the windy beach. You can get transport there and back. The hotel does have a pool, however, when we went the weather was a little cold to get in and they give you 2 welcome drinks on the house. Ask for a Pisco Sour!
