In April 2010 we stayed at La Posada de los Raqueros, my friend, daughter and her boyfriend. The accommodations there are just wonderful. We stayed in a two level Casa Sol y Mar and it was perfect for the four of us. Two very large beds, one on each level. A wonderfully clean and modern bathroom on each level. The first level also had a table and chairs and day couch (think it had a trundel bed under it but to be honest did not look). There was also a great outdoor kitchen. Fresh bottled water was provided for the duration.
Hans and Angie, our hosts and the owners of this beautiful place were informative, kind and considerate. They provided a just right breakfast each morning which consisted of coffee, juice, yogurt, granola and fruit. The perfect way to start a day.
The stretch of beach immediately in front of the Posada was just the most perfect place to pass the day................fresh air, wildlife, crashing waves, and wonderful sunshine! There were several restaurants within walking distance, we enjoyed dinners at several of them.
I almost forgot Toofie..........the resident dog. We wanted to take him home with us. He followed us around and protected us, slept in our little yard and was a great companion on beach walks...........miss you Toofie.
You can't go wrong with this wonderful accommodation.
- 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
