Staff and service is top notch! Beautiful resort. Grounds and rooms were always well kept. We did the all inclusive and the drinks and food were great! The only downside was that we felt the music was always a bit loud and sometimes a little too late in the evening.

The rooms were a nice size. My only issue was the room smelled musty. Some things felt like they needed a little repair ie: our door handle was very loose and hard to open. Other wise it was a nice room.

Sadly first time for my husband in Manzanillo and wasn't at all what we expected. Not a friendly staff, cold food at the restaurant, not allowed to have snack close to the pool (adult) bad surprise to pay for the WiFi. No shuttle service to the airport.

One of the most amazing experiences I've ever had! The buffet was delicious and the bar service was amazing. The Mexican restaurant was good, but I thought it had more spicy food. It has a marvelous view in every room and the beach is so relaxing!

Unless you are fluent in Spanish I would not suggest that you attend this resort due to your special dietary needs. I do not believe that you will be able to successfully communicate your special requests to the kitchen staff. even if you are fluent, I think that you would have significant difficulty in getting food that you are not worried about. I would strongly suggest that you consider another location.

My gf and I had the premium package, the buffet food is average but fills you up... We made a reservation at 8:30am at the concierge for dinner that evening.... I think people here commenting that they didn't get a reservation didn't plan/ask questions properly when checking otherwise they would know that concierge informs you that you can only make reservations with the premium package the same day you want the reservation. That's what we did as early as possible and had no problems at all.

On the other hand we have our Italian restaurant "Capri" this is located in the center of our pool area, surrounded by tropical gardens and its cuisine are distinguished; the veal ravioli, lasagna and finally a tiramisu and a gelato from the house.
