After not having much luck finding a good place to stay in the area, we literally stumbled upon this gem of a place. We were instantly greeted and help with everything we could ask for by Karen at the front desk. We cannot say enough good things about Karen, she spoke great english and would drop what she was doing and go out of her way to help us everyday by suggesting things to do and see in Manzanillo, great nearby restaurants, calling around to arrange excursions, taxis, and even helped us find the best rates on OTHER hotels to where we were traveling to next. We sat and chatted quite a bit with Karen, and she has a very upbeat and outgoing personality and so helpful that along with the quality and value of the hotel, we decided to extend our stay here to a full week!
The rest of the hotel staff also were very friendly and helpful, making sure there was coffee and snacks out every morning, bringing us towels and anything else we needed, including using their staff fridge to keep our beverages cold! There are 8 cozy suites on 2 floors all facing the pool and ocean on the quiet side of the hotel. The room we had was amazing... nice big king size bed, great working Air conditioning, very clean, with a great panoramic view of everything from Manzanillo centro on the west to the hotel zone and large rock point on the east, this included some of the most amazing sunsets i've ever seen. It was very quiet and peaceful. We went to bed and woke up to the sound of waves crashing and not much else.
The pool area was also very clean and relaxing. A great place to lounge out and catch some sun & read a book. There was also a shaded area over a large table to bring back some lunch or for when the sun got too intense.
The location here was perfect for someone who has little or not mode of transportation... We caught the local bus which picked us up and dropped us off right outside the entrance if we didn't feel like walking, otherwise, we were a 10 minute walk to all the great restaurants, supermarket and amenities of Manzanillo.
Just a perfect place!!! Pool and Beach right outside your room, with the main road right at the entrance, within minutes of all the amenities you would need during your stay, all with the amazement of zero noise and feeling very safe and comfortable! Thanks to all the staff ... and especially to Karen for all her hard work and passion for making guests happy!
