“Everything they say it is -- Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

It was everything I expected from the web site pictures, plus more. I could see the surf break from my bed when I woke up in the morn. Early morn surf, then great breakfast of granola yogurt, coffee, etc. The owners Know How to Take CARE of their Guests!
I will be coming back. Thanks for all.

My wife and I booked for one night and ended up staying for 12! We had planned on moving around the area a little staying in different places but we ended up being very comfortable at Los Raqueros! Nice clean rooms or you can rent a little Casita with cooking facilities. We surf so it was awesome to walk right out the door to surf Manzanillo point,( a little rocky, not for beginners there, but La Saladita, 20 min drive north has a friendlier wave to learn). There is some nice swimming and snorkeling to be done right out front of Los Raqueros with great sea shell picking too. Sunsets are world class and there are a couple of restaurants to walk to. This is a wonderful little guest house with great hosts! There are pricier, newer places around to rent ,but you don't really have to, you'll be happy here!

I can close my eyes and still see the absolute beauty of these Bungalows. Upon arrival we were greeted by Hans and Angie. The 2 most welcoming people I have ever met. With a cold beverage and a smile, I knew right away we were in the right place.
The bungalow was better than expected. Very very clean. The colours of the bungalow, Trees and of course the open ocean at our door step were extremely soothing.
During our stay, we saw multiple lizards and birds. The Iguanas and geckos were a real welcome sight. I sure wish I could have Barking Geckos sing me to sleep every night.
With breakfast ready for us every morning upon wake up, we knew our day got started right. Fresh fruit, Yogourt, Juice and of course Mexican coffee.
The beach was out of this world. With frequent visits from sea turtles and big waves, You just can't beat it!!!!
I highly recamend this rental property to anyone wanting to escape the weight of the outside world!!!!

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.

La Posada de los Raqueros provided us with the truly relaxing vacation that we were looking for in a setting that can only be described as stunning. From the sunsets and tidal pools to the pounding surf as you sleep, Raqueros gave us the that profound beachfront setting we were seeking. Located on Manzanillo Bay just outside of the town of Troncones, this place gives you the feeling of escape, but with comforts. Our room in the main lodge was spacious and charmingly decorated. We often spent siestas lounging on the terrace, while still in view of the beach. The senoritas created different floral artistry on our bed and towels each day.

The beach here is is open ocean, known to surfers, but swimmable with some caution. Watching the surfers was a great pasttime. Hans and Angie are gracious hosts who provide you with local tips, great conversation, and host sunset happy hours. A highlight for us was witnessing the release of sea turtles, (little green ridleys), on both our first night and our last night. (That must be an auspicious sign!)

Troncones itself has enough of everything you need including beachfront bars and restaurants, a modern liquor store in a new little mini-mall, little shops, and even yoga. However, our favorite restaurant quickly became Hotel Eden, just next door to Raqueros, particularly the tuna in its many variations.

It's easy to catch the combi/bus to either Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa if you need a taste of the city, but you'll be glad to return to your seaside garden of Raqueros at the end of the day.

For me the surfer this was 18 days in Paradise. Surfing everyday. I have stayed in various location in Troncones and this was my first stay at Raqueros. The place mimics the character of your hosts Hans and Angie who welcome you to Raqueros as if you were old friends. The staff that Hans and Angie employ quietly go about their duties in an unobtrusive manner and anticipate youe needs. We plan to visit again in 2011.

We simply loved posada Los Raqueros, a wonderful, quiet place, decorated with much taste in « mexican » colors! Its owners, Hans and Angie did everything to make us feel “at home” and to find our way around. Also we had most interesting talks with the other guests. On our long walks along the beautiful beaches of Manzanillo and Majahua ( lots of pelicans, exotic fish, even baby turtles!) we had the privilege to be accompanied by “Tuffi”, our hosts’ affectionate, funny dog! Back home, we enjoyed the wonderful sunsets, right in front of “Los Raqueros”.
This definitely is a place to enjoy, away from the roaring crowd!
