We absolutely LOVE to go for Sunday breakfast at this funky 70s Manzanillo beach hotel and imagine it as it was 40 to 45 years ago, bustling with all the Hollywood stars of the day. Great views of Santiago Bay, authentic Mexican cuisine at great prices, and friendly, attentive staff, keep bringing us back Sundays. Well worth a visit and,... More

Although we arrived during the worst March rains in Manzanillo in 30 years, the hotel staff welcomed us and conducted business as usual. The restaurant serves a great breakfast and midday meal. Bar open in the evening. The friendliness of the staff, cleanliness, pool and beach at our door step along with the funky retro style more than offset any... More

The front desk staff have always been friendly and helpful. The rooms have a small balcony that overlooks the beach. Most rooms have two double beds with faded linens but are spacious enough for a couple of nights. Nothing special about these rooms and they are quite dated. The best thing about this hotel is that it is directly across... More

Clean and well worn rooms with clean but well worn linens. Beautiful views of the bay and mountains, without the haze and smoke at the south end of town near the busy ports and transportation centers. Very accommodating staff and a nice restaurant on site with very short hours. This is the best area we have found on the Mexican... More

Good: the hotel has a great view, I choose it because it accept pets, it's worth to say my dog did't find any trace from other dogs neither in the room or the common areas. The hotel is clean. Direct access to the beach and beach "la audiencia" is 5 min driving (was the beast one I visit in Manzanillo)... More

I had booked this hotel online which said it would be $15us each a night. Got there and after all the taxes and interest it ended up being $37us each a night for the group of 7 of us. We were backpacking through Mexico so this price was way above our budget. The rooms were old and dirty, run-down and... More

Especially when I look back and see the previous warnings. This hotel is old, dated, dusty and kinda weird. The front staff is kinda rude, certainly not warm and friendly. I kept asking where the other people were and was told it was off season. Only 3 other rooms filled in May?? That said, we had a wonderful time there.... More

I want to begin by saying that the rating system or hotel star appraisal system needs a very careful review. This may have been 3 1/2 stars hotel at new however it currently would struggle to be one star, yet promoters and trip organizers are using an outdated rating by about 20 years to continue to sell vacation time at...

We spent 5 relaxing and enjoyable days at this hotel and will definately return again. The price was reasonable and the view from our hotel room was beautiful. The pool and beach where clean and easily accessable. Although the room was tired it was clean. The one thing that I feel was lacking is the bathrooms were needing updating. I... More
