The good: I was blown away by my good fortune in finding this place on basically no notice. I decided to travel to Manzanillo on a sunday, and reading the lonely planet Mexico on the bus. Rooms available literally 50 feet from the water. I got a reasonably clean room with 2 beds, hot shower for $280 pesos (just over... More

I was back packing through mexico and came across this gem. Its not lavish by any stretch but being directly on the beach the air is fresh and naturally cleanses the space around you with a beautiful breeze. A million dollar view with a low price of $20 a night. This beach is not overly populated and the only thing... More

We didn't end up staying at this hotel, but were checking it out because of previous reviews we saw on Trip Advisor. The first thing we noticed is that half the windows were broken, and the floors looked like they hadn't been washed in weeks. Some of the doors were off their hinges, and the beach was smelly and dirty.... More

We really enjoyed the two nights we spent at the Anita. We had called ahead of time to make a reservation for the 350 peso room. Upon our arrival, the friendly lady at the front desk asked us if we'd like to see what we could get for just 50 pesos more and we said, "Sure." It was an upstairs... More

I spent a month at the Anita Hotel in Dec of 06. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean with plenty of hot water. Being an old backpacker this place brought back pheasant memories. Other then Christmas and Easter the Hotel is not busy. Just show up and depending on length of stay negotiate the price. The place... More

We stayed at the hotel Anita and loved it, sure it lacks many things but the things it misses, you gain in it's charm. The building was partially closed in some areas due to previous earthquake damage, and what a thrill to be out swimming with the moray eels! (Didn't know it until afterwards) You can walk into town if... More

I have actually stayed at the Hotel Anita two separate times, once in 1987 and again in 1992. I loved the place, my fondest memories -the old worn tile, the cheap prices, the large room with gorgeous worn mexican tile, the beds certainly lacked lustre (I don't quite know why some hotel managers just don't buy a new mattress??) My... More

We stayed at the Anita two nights. It was $30/night for 2 people, including taxes, with two double beds, fan and plenty of hot water. We had a private but small deck that overlooked the beach below. Towels were handed out at the front desk and we had daily cleaning service. The curtains were a mess and the bedding was... More
