We stayed at the Tenisol Hotel in January 2013 for three nights. It is located in the gated community of Club Santiago, a community of condos and vacation homes. The hotel had probably been first class when first built, stone and granite floors and counters in the rooms but anything that was wood or metal was showing wear from the ocean air. The stucco on the exterior needs repair and gives the hotel a shabby appearance but it has a nice pool surrounded by nice gardens. The hotel room was large, clean, had a bar fridge and comfortable beds. It is two blocks from a very nice beach for walking and swimming and a good beach-side restaurant called the Oasis. We had a good breakfast at the hotel restaurant and the service in the restaurant was good. The service from the front desk is of varying quality. We booked through Booking.com and was quoted in US dollars before taxes but paid in pesos with taxes so it was a little hard to tell whether we were getting the quoted rate or not. The evening staff at our visit didn't speak English, but the lady on the desk during the day spoke very good English. They will call you a cab or you can walk to the end of the road and take the bus into the town of Santiago or Manzanillo. You can get laundry done in Santiago. Santiago is a nice Mexican town which has been incorporated into the city of Manzanillo. We took the bus into Manzanillo but beyond seeing the wharf where the sport fishing boats were coming in with their catches of marlin and the iguana reserve, we wouldn't go again. The bus ride took about 45 minutes. Lonely Planet called it a town that didn't know whether it wanted to be an industrial town or a tourist town and they pegged it right. The town plaza is nice but has a huge tanker ship sitting just in front of it.
