This was our first trip to somewhere tropical March 6 - 13, 2012 and also our honeymoon. We were nervous about travelling to a foreign country, we were unsure of what to expect. We searched and searched and finally decided to book the Grand Bay and we were not disappointed!! This place is MAGICAL! When you dream of paradise, this is it! The staff at this resort are EXCEPTIONAL! Friendly, happy, always right there to help whenever you need them. Everyone, from the cleaning people to the bar tenders to the concierge, all of them were so helpful and pleasant, going out of their way to make our vacation perfect!
The hotel and grounds are breath taking! We took a couple tours, went whale watching, fishing, snorkeling and had lunch and dinner on the beach. Juan was fabulous, helping us book tours and arranging for us to have a true Mexican dinner at a small place on the beach.
A few small little villages are only a short water taxi ride away and are true to everyday life in Mexico. The residents in these towns are just awe inspiring, working hard everyday in scorching heat, always willing to stop and say hello or answer questions. At no time did we feel pressured to buy anything.
Grand Bay is a place to go to relax. It is not a party place which was perfect for us. We lead a busy life and we wanted to go somewhere to unwind and revive, this was the place. They have a wonderful spa and a beautiful golf course.
I could go on and on and on about how this place was our dream come true!!
We are booking right now for another vacation in two weeks. Although there are many places that look nice at a great price, my heart is calling me to go back to Manzanillo. I have already stated to my husband that I wish to retire there. We will be returning Jan 29, 2013 and staying at the Grand Bay, there is no other choice for us!
