This is the most magical place to deeply relax and just drop back into being in the moment. We arrived very tired and immediately fell into the nurturing rythmn of Posada de los Raqueros-the sea,the beautiful green grounds of the property and tranquility.The gardens reach to the most glorious beach, nestled into magical Manzanillo Bay.Here the pelicans perform thier fishing feats all day and each sunset is more glorious then the next.
The manageress Ava was wonderful from her helpful advice when we made the booking, to a warm welcome and throughout our stay.We loved having a fresh breakfast available every morning-one less thing to do...yet having the freedom of having a kitchen in our Casita Mariposa was perfect.Fresh fish,veggies,fruit and chicken is delivered to the property gate daily.And there are great resturants at the surrounding hotel properties as well.All so easy!
It is all so peaceful as there are lots of hanging out spaces in/around the casita.We also enjoyed the most incredible verandah with hammocks, and of course the beach front chairs and lounge was hard to leave! We celebrated our wedding anniversary by renewing our vows at sunset on the beach with the owners (who were visiting)Hans and Angie as our ring bearer and witness-what fun! They,like Ava were so easy to be around and so informative yet laid back.
This is the place - not modern and fancy or slick-just an intimate,comfortable, quiet,deeply relaxing place to renew your spirit! Gracias por todos!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Posada de los Raqueros is a beach-lover's paradise hideaway and casitas. Our beachfront villa at Playa Manzanillo, just north of the village of Troncones, features several accommodation options, starting with two beautiful spacious oceanview guest suites (cuartos Viejo del Mar and Caballo del Mar), each with a large private talavara tiled bathroom, your own seating area on the main terrace, and situated around our hammock-lined terrace and garden. Across the lawn and 10-steps from the beach sits our beachfront bungalow Casita del Pelicano, one of our two 2-story bungalows. Behind el Pelicano, you will find La Casita de la Mariposa and the family-sized Casa Sol y Mar, a 2-story, 2 bedroom/2 bath loft-style beach house. All the bungalows feature large shuttered and screened windows, spacious private bathrooms with hot showers, open-air kitchens and refrigerators. And all are just a few steps from Playa Manzanillo - the "jewel" of the region - a wide, sandy beach with a fun surf spot at the south end. FlashFeel We speak Spanish, English, German and Dutch; please feel free to communicate with us in any of these languages. Welcome! Your options are many here. Want to surf? Get up, grab your board and walk 50 steps to a world class site. Snorkel? The bay at Manzanillo is loaded with tropical fish and has beautiful, clear water for excellent snorkeling. Feel like swimming? The water is around 80?F and the waves in the bay are often gentle. How about fishing? You can pick up a boat right in front of your casita and go out all day for Dorado, Sierra, or even Marlin, maybe even stop somewhere for a surf on the way out and back. Is eating your thing? The beach at Playa Manzanillo has several excellent restaurants to choose from, with everything from traditional Mexican fare to brick oven-baked Pizza, excellent European & American cuisine and fresh Lobster right out of the bay.But, then again, you might just be happy enough sitting on the beach in one of our comfy beach chairs with a book from our library and a cold Corona in easy reach. What do you think? La Posada de Los Raqueros is located in Troncones, a small, safe and friendly beachfront community 20 miles north of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa and 40 minutes from the airport. Getting here is so easy that it's amazing how tranquil the area still is. ... more less
