My wife and I have stayed at Casa Manana a couple of times now and have been thoroughly impressed with this property. We will continue to stay at this estate when we visit Mexico because of its beauty, comforts, and the feeling that we are treated as family before, during and after our visits. The atmosphere of Casa Manana is beyond explanation. It consists of several casas and casitas and offers several options and price ranges for the wouldbe visitors. This walled estate is situated in a quiet area of Bucerias right on the beach and is close to many quality restaraunts that offer a variety of cuisines to fit any budget. The gorgeous pool and patio area is surrounded by lush vegetation and offers great serenity. The white, sandy beach is just a few seconds away via a couple of walkways that pass through a large palapa area with palm trees that in itself is a great place to sun, watch for whales and dolphins, read a book or just to have a cold drink and socialize with other guests. The beach and shoreline are gently sloped and the water is shallow with waves good enough for boogie boarding and safe enough for kids. Casa Manana is very well maintained and the staff takes great pride in keeping the property clean, secure and well manicured. The owners, Mike and Vivienne, are "hands-on" folk and are consistently concerned with the comfort and satisfaction of all the guests. They are friendly and warm and understand what it takes to make travelers feel right at home. If you need information on the local scene they are experts and are well connected within the community. The casas are all equipped with any utensil needed to prepare any meal. There are even a couple of Weber barbeques and mesquite charcoal available to grill fresh fish and shrimp that are available daily at the nearby fish stores. Casa Manana even employs a local food specialist, Leonarda, who will come in to your casa and for a very reasonable price prepare a delicious Mexican meal that is absolutely wonderful. Mike and Vivienne and their crew of workers make Casa Manana a place to dream about. The only negative aspect about staying at Casa Manana is leaving......... it's tough to leave "Paradise Perfecto"!
