So hip it almost needs a replacement, Hotel DCO sits in prime posing position on Las Pocitas beach. Looking more like the dream home of an award-winning architect than a hotel, Hotel DCO is all sleek lines, white walls, billowing linen and comfy daybeds from which to watch the world go by.
There are just seven suites (including one Master Suite) so as you can imagine things get busy in high season, but a stay here will be well worth the pre-planning. All the suites have uninterrupted views of the beach and ocean beyond and feature must have mod cons such as ipod docks and walkie talkies for asking the staff to bring you up another cocktail.
While the beach beckons constantly, there is a small pool to cool off in, and a rooftop spa offering a range of relaxing Asian inspired treatments. The restaurant Gourmet DCO specialises in Peruvian specialities such as super fresh cerviche and there is a small bar serving cocktails.
Why we love it
The barman mixes a mean version of that Peruvian classic: the pisco, but try the house Mojadita - a mojito spiced up with the addition of jalapeno chilli.
