“Best beach-front hotel near San Blas”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

Our family loves Casa Manana. It is the best beach-front hotel near San Blas, and consistently delivers the most authentic, fun and tranquil vacation on the Riviera Nayarit. We've vacationed there several times over the past seven years. Almost all of the rooms face the ocean so you can watch the brilliant sunsets each evening. The restaurant has a diverse menu, offering fresh Mexican, seafood and European dishes. Saturday night is pizza night where they fire up a traditional pizza oven - you won't find a better crust and seafood pizza around. We're often entertained on site with the on-site game room and local musicians. The staff is very professional and speaks several languages. Casa Manana is on Playa Los Cocos about 20 minutes south of San Blas near the village of Aticama, so while you're not in San Blas directly, there are fewer bugs and it's much quieter.

The Hotel Casa Mañana is really a beautiful place for some relaxing times. The Ocean view is breath taking, the staff is very nice and friendly. The room was always clean and the food at the restaurant was really good.

Is very near to San Blas, where you can book a whale watching tour (from November to March) or go to swim and sunbath at Las Islitas beach.

We will definitely go back to this hotel!

We stayed at Casa Manana for two nights, and went into a small town to eat those two evenings. Food was fine. We very much enjoyed our visit to the San Blas area. We wanted to be close to San Blas for birding, but heard of the "jejenes" - tiny biting flies in San Blas, so we stayed at Hotel Casa Manana - about 15 min. drive south of San Blas, and it was great! One downside: the beach is not great for swimming - a lot of rocks... The view was spectacular - we got a room with view to the beach, and the grounds and pool were great - our children loved it!!

The Tovara river tour was wonderful, and highly recommended, especially to those interested in watching birds!! ! You are able to see some of these beautiful birds from fairly up close. After out boat tour in San Blas, we went into a restaurant that was recommended by a few local people called "McDonalds" (no, not the one you are thinking of...) - we had an excellent brunch there! Great service too!

I am glad we did not stay right in San Blas, because in late afternoon, there was a family visiting a beach close to San Blas, and apparently they got swarmed (?) by the much heard of (in the San Blas information) jejenes. Casa Manana was fine for that! Only very few jejenes 2 or 3 - so at least I know what a few felt like!

We stayed for 10 days here at Casa Manana in Los Cocos, appx 12 miles south of San Blas. Very sweet, right on the ocean, quiet, nice restaurant, internet service, swimming and a great price. Not the tourist scene. Some foreign tourists, but mostly Mexican families on vacation or business travelers. Clean, comfortable. Beach grounds are well maintained and you can walk the beach to the small village of Aticama. This is a get away place. We felt safe and cared for. It's about 2 hours by car from Puerto Vallarta. Best to rent a car. We will visit this place again. Check out their website. http://www.casa-manana.com/ubicacionI.htm

Our family stayed at the Casa Manana, and it wasn't the most comfortable hotel bed- but the food was good, and the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. It is more of a Mexican's resort. We met alot of locals, and well travelled people at the hotel. While there isn't alot to do at the hotel, the beach is beautiful, the restaraunt is the best in the area, the pool is small, but clean. There is a pool room and big tv's in a room off the bar to visit at night. It is a good place to stay and use as a base for exploring the area. The price is right for what we got- the beds and rooms are clean, and yes the air conditioners and tvs work! No, it isn't a five star resort, but niether is the price! We will probably stay again.

I just came from SAN BLAS NAYARIT and we stayed at the Hotel Casa Mañana, it was horrible, everything was wrong, the rooms are very old, had water pipes passing through inside the room, the air conditioning did not work, Nor would the TELEVISION, the sink leaked, the windows did´t opened, the food was not bad, but the service was bad, the truth is that i´m not going back, it was a one night say and it was enough for me, not invited to go back.
