The Resort was the nicest on the strip, the directions from google to...

This is the first time we have ever gone back to a resort and are already making plans to go back again next year. It was nice to see familiar faces. Raul, the best bell boy (man) ever.

This was our first visit to the Manzanillo area and we absolutely loved it! What a great change from more tradional tourist areas in Mexico.
