Reviews of Sunset Club

Located in a quiet part of Zorritos, Casa Kresala offers a unique experience. The relaxed yard, right at the beach, features several rooms and a lot of cosy communal space. They also organise their own surfing classes and have a nice collection of rent surfboards at your disposal. On the rooftop balcony you can enjoy healthy breakfasts in the morning and delicious meals at night while overlooking one of the nicest beaches in the country with nice cocktails.
The owners are big animal lovers, which is not only noticed on their menu – but also becomes apparent from the numerous animals that roam the land; cats, chicken and a dog. The food is deliciously put together, mostly vegetarian, although they also work closely with the local fishermen to serve ultra-fresh fish dishes. For a couple of soles they also take care of your laundry.
The owners of Casa Kresala also run a small NGO called Hands & Surf, which aims to help the locals in Zorritos. They teach local children how to surf and also provide English classes at a local primary school and at Casa Kresala, as well as organising other workshops for them. Guests are welcome to get involved in their volunteer program which is incredibly rewarding.

Reviews of Casa Kresala:
“Casa Kresala is one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in! Willie and Cleo go out of their way everyday to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Willie is a tremendous chef, and their restaurant is the only place in Zorritos you can get truly inventive and high quality cuisine (or anything other than the standard Peruvian fare). The Hostel itself is beautiful, quite modern for Zorritos, and 50 yards from the beach. Willie is also an excellent surf coach and Cleo makes the best Mojito I have ever had in my life. Period. I would highly recommend them to anyone staying in the Zorritos, and especially to TEFL students who will be there for a month or more.” Mitch Norton, USA
“Casa Kresala is absolutely amazing!!!! Highly recommend for laid back & respectful students in the future. The hosts and the ambiance were beyond my expectations. It was a tiny paradise. They made the experience of staying in Zorritos very comfortable.” Charles Flowers-Mitchell, USA
“I absolutely LOVED Casa Kresala! The hosts are relaxed, fun, and very helpful and accommodating. Their restaurant is delicious and our room was perfect. I highly recommend it!” Bekka Shadoan, USA
“I had a great experience at Casa Krasala. Friendly owners and welcoming atmosphere. I would definitely return.” Jeremy Petru, USA
“Casa Kresala (Sea breeze house inn Quechua) has to be one of the best unsung hotels of northern Peru. A fantastic environment, just a stone’s throw away from the gorgeous beach in Zorritos, coupled with incredible owners, Willy, a true renaissance man, skilled not only in surfing, but also a wonderful chef, and Cleo, who without a shadow of a doubt makes the greatest cocktails. I would murder for one of her Mojitos! If privacy is your thing, they offer a private bedroom, or if you fancy slumming it with the normos, the dorm room is fantastic. Honestly, if I could, I would live there.” George Docherty, UK
