If you are looking for a nice and quiet place to stay for a great value, Hotel Luna del Mar is a great hidden surprise!
We've been several times in Manzanillo, since we live a few hours away driving. We've stayed at Barcelo (too expensive) and Maeva (good infrastructure, but rooms are too outdated and usually very far from the pools). Now we decided to give it a try to a Best Western since our previous experiences in Colima, Zacatecas and even, Rome were very good.
First good feeling: I made a reservation online with a great price, but the day we were supposed to arrive there was a hurricane approaching to the Pacific and might hit Manzanillo. I called the Best Western reservation center and being very proactive and helpful, they called the hotel and moved my reservation 2 weeks later without modifying the price, even though the policy said that date changes or cancellations were not allowed. Extra points!
The Hotel room was nice and clean with 2 full size beds (we are a family with 2 kids, 9 and 14). Nice little flat TV hanging from the ceiling and decent air conditioning (not noisy at all). The restroom was a little bit small (thin and long), but it was OK.
The room price included breakfast buffet for 2 (we were changed for the kids even though the reservation did not clarified it was only for 2). The food was average.
The location of the rooms was great... just a few meters away from the pool. The hotel is not bit at all, so it is difficult to find a room far from the pool. The pool is large and nice, although deep for little kids (we don't worry about it any more). However there is little pool for kids on the other side of the hotel and a fountain pool, the some people used to play with their kids.
The beach is literally at your hand with beautiful nightfall. You can just sit and enjoy the dusk and the sound of the waves. Simply beautiful and peaceful. The getting into the sea was ok, but it was to steep, within a few meter it was easily 2 meter deep and more. The only down side of the hotel could be that the access to the beach was at the other extreme of hotel from the main pool (which is really just a few meter away, 50m maybe).
For lunch and dinner we decided to go out. We found a gem just a couple of blocks away from the hotel on the same avenue. It is a Pizza place called Trentino Casa della Pizza. What a great pizza they have! I'll go back to Manzanillo just to eat there again.
If you want to party... you are a little bit far away from the fun. But If you want to enjoy the hotel and the pool in a peaceful place. This Best Western is right for you!!!
