Reviewed January 2, 2014

We had a great time at Pepe’s. The service, the food, the margaritas, the place… everything was just perfect… We just loved every little detail and every little thing at Pepe’s. Speedy, his son and the rest of the staff are great people. Pepe has a privileged little estate that has a beautiful view to the Pacific Ocean.

The fruit is extremely good, the shrimp, everything!!! Dinner is served at 6:00 pm and is served on a table with the rest of the guests attending too. There is no menu, but they cook whatever te fresh catch of the day is or what the guests ask for. A very personal experience.

We have a tradition of visiting Mexico over US Thanksgiving to get some sun and grilled octopus [pulpo]. Found this 'everything included' gem on a travel website and then checked TripAdvisor ratings which were great. We were the only guests for most of the week, in room #3 [cantilevered over the surf]. Had dinner every evening with Pepe who is a fascinating story teller.The location is drop dead gorgeous, safe and quiet. Pepe's is the only hotel inside the gated area of La Punta, which has spectacular houses to walk around and look at. A nice pool to lie by, with a pitcher of frozen margaritas in the freezer always available. Each room has a small fridge as well with beers, sodas and water. The local beach [over the hill] is quite nice and quiet. We were asked every day what we wanted for lunch/dinner, and I got to go shopping several times with Speedy to the Santiago mercado for fresh food. We had a traditional turkey dinner on Thursday with about 16 of Pepe's friends [all characters] but then Speedy surpassed himself on Friday with grilled pulpo/ steak and mahimahi. Speedy also provided daily transportation for our scuba diving adventures. There are 3 dachshunds on the property who are shameless for attention. The only negative was the rather ferocious mosquitos at dinner [remnants of a wet spell] which were manageable with the provided fans at night.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, make sure to tell them. Rooms 2 & 3 are down steep stairs. R...

With out a doubt, Pepe's Hideaway is one of the nicest resorts in Manzanillo. Amongst the tropical landscape, surrounded by palm trees edged along the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean sets your unique, private and extremely clean bungalow. If you are looking for a private get away or a place to recharge, this is definitely the place to go. Thank you Pepe and Speedy for a wonderful weekend-the food and company were amazing!

I normally don't write reviews. This is my 1st trip advisor review actually. It is a wonderful place, super safe, and great people. Pepe was not there during I've visit but Speedy was. Speedy and his staff are top notch. They treat you like family. Anything you wanted to eat and drink wasn't a problem. Patricia was the chef and her food is to die for. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection daily we will be coming back for sure.

Just to give you an example of Speedy's service. My wife left her iPad at the dinner table the day we Were leaving. I called speedy from the airpirt and told him that I left my iPad. He he drove 45 minutes to the airport to give me my iPad.

Wonderful place!!!

This wasn't my first time at Pepe's and it won't be my last. When you need time away from it all, this is the perfect place. Gorgeous views, delicious food, courteous service and a pampered feeling all vacation long. I'll go back as soon as possible!

I had the most amazing time at Pepe's hideway...it is a beautiful place to relax and loose yourself within the beauty of Manzanilla, Mexico. Im so happy and pleased with the service and location. Pepe had such intresting stories he has seen it all....amazing man!!!!

If you have a chance to plan a getaway you will not be disappointed one bit. Just make sure you have plenty of bug repellent...Mesquites bite around this time of year.

I have found a gem of a destination!!! The grounds are nestled deep into exclusive gated neighborhood of 'La Punta" Mexico. Located in between multi-million dollar custom beach mansions down a windy driveway.....the entrance to 'Pepe's Hideaway'. First of all the service from 'Speedy' is 2nd to none with the all-inclusive meals which I can compare to michelin star restaraunts. Every morning there is a tea and coffee service brought to the bungalow patio with the signature Manzanillo tea.
Each one of the bungalows offer a completely private plush accomodations with a view RIGHT ON THE BEACH. It was so romantic and relaxing listening to the waves crash below our bungalow. The grounds are very well manicured and every inch is flowing in tropical exotic abundance. The colors sounds taste fresh sea air was a refreshing sensory overload unparalled. There is even a private staircase that leads to a very private beach which me and my fiance was able to take in some fun in the sun.
I will be coming back here with my hubby for our anniversary for sure!
