Nice clean hotel, room was great. For the size of motel has the smallest beach area in Manzanillo. Food was decent not spectacular. Service was great. If you book for there site it is much cheaper. Probably cleanest motel in Manzanillo and most modern. I still think all inclusives should include Internet Barcelo does not, even had to pay per...

When I went to the Karmina Palace, there were no flaws. The sunshine was great, yet there was no problem keeping cool in their 9 pools (and not to mention the ocean-front beach). The food was great while the staff was hard at work. Activities filled my days and it was the fastest week of my life! This place is...

The best hotel in Manzanillo. The rooms were great and the food also. The staff are aware and helpful. The food were excellent. The only thing that I didn't like was that they don't have a bar in the pool, but the waiters were aware of you and always serve us. The hotel also count with an excellent architecture.

I am not sure if I was at the resort as other people who have posted here....the Karmina Palace is a wonderful resort! The service was outstanding all over the resort! The rooms were huge - the biggest of any resort we have visited. There were many pools, some for kids and others for adults. There was also a jacuzzi...

We stayed in a Club Premium room, #6218, from 3/20/11 to 3/27/11 and had a perfect room with a great view of the ocean. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. We went through Continental Airlines Vacations, because they had better prices than Apple, and Delta Airlines Vacations. Cleared customs quickly and found our ride from the airport to the hotel waiting...

The architecture was breathtaking, and the building and grounds very well laid out and maintained. Cascading, interconnecting pools allowed for privacy and enjoyment. Drinks were not watered down, and servers were disappointed with orders for water only. There was a good balance of Mexican to North American food at the buffet daily. Disappointing were the cracked and chipped cups and...
