Barcelo Karmina Palace, family of 4 (kids are 9 and 11)...

OK so I have some basic questions... please note, I am a complete newbie when it comes to Manzanillo and know basically nothing.

How far is BKP from the airport?

We are thinking of going in January, will the water be warm enough to swim in?

How about the pools, are they heated?

Do all 2 bedroom rooms have private plunge pools (tripcentral.ca doesn't specify)

Can you do whale watching in Manzanillo?

How about other activities for families with kids?

Do the restaurants have kids menu's?

Will we get by with basic Spanish? We have been to the Mayan Riviera twice.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advise.

Cheers!

Yes, I kind of thought Steve may have been involved.

Keep your stick on the ice up there in Winnipeg!

Hi Willbetrvlng - the Karmina has a paid internet service in the rooms - you can buy a couple of hours or a full day, but in our experience, the paid internet isn't very stable.

The lobby has free wi-fi, though, and it extends through the lobby bar and, if you're lucky and the stars are aligned right, just barely out onto the patio in the courtyard near the lobby / courtyard entrance.

ChellyBelle A, thanks for the information. I hope the stars align and I can get internet on the patio. Would you know what kind of refreshments are provided in the room. Beer, wine, hard alcohol, juice, pop, coffee?

There'll be a coffee pot, bottles of water and pop - if you're in a suite with a plunge pool, you're probably in Club Premium, so I think you probably qualify for free room service (check with your travel agent) which means you can phone down and ask for pitchers of juice and bottles of wine and they'll bring them up to you. They may or may not do the same with bottles of booze - you may just have to order drink by drink. :)
