Thanks to Eva for making this such a great vacation. After a misunderstanding about our arrival dates, we were welcomed with no fuss at all into the family. She was there for any small problems we had, like the air conditioning and bug bites. This is a great place for R&R and I will be back, hopefully with a group of either friends or students, year after year!
The location is amazing. The only drawback is the fact that the price does not include air conditioning, which is very necessary in either of the rear casitas

Room Tip: The Mariposa is very hot a stuffy, so you will need the air conditioning - beware that this is an ex...

This is the most magical place to deeply relax and just drop back into being in the moment. We arrived very tired and immediately fell into the nurturing rythmn of Posada de los Raqueros-the sea,the beautiful green grounds of the property and tranquility.The gardens reach to the most glorious beach, nestled into magical Manzanillo Bay.Here the pelicans perform thier fishing feats all day and each sunset is more glorious then the next.
The manageress Ava was wonderful from her helpful advice when we made the booking, to a warm welcome and throughout our stay.We loved having a fresh breakfast available every morning-one less thing to do...yet having the freedom of having a kitchen in our Casita Mariposa was perfect.Fresh fish,veggies,fruit and chicken is delivered to the property gate daily.And there are great resturants at the surrounding hotel properties as well.All so easy!
It is all so peaceful as there are lots of hanging out spaces in/around the casita.We also enjoyed the most incredible verandah with hammocks, and of course the beach front chairs and lounge was hard to leave! We celebrated our wedding anniversary by renewing our vows at sunset on the beach with the owners (who were visiting)Hans and Angie as our ring bearer and witness-what fun! They,like Ava were so easy to be around and so informative yet laid back.
This is the place - not modern and fancy or slick-just an intimate,comfortable, quiet,deeply relaxing place to renew your spirit! Gracias por todos!

My partner and I are both writers, so we we like to hang out at "home" wherever we vacation, we like to have a kitchenette, and we like to be able to get a little space from each other, too - just being in one room together all the time doesn't work well for us. This place met all of those needs and many more! We stayed in the Casita de Pelicanos, an AMAZING spot right on the beach - literally - with a huge, totally private ocean view patio complete with our own dining table, an additional table a bit closer to the surface, two ample chaise lounges and our own hammock. There is a well-equipped kitchen open to the sea breeze, and, indoors, a spacious living room plus an upstairs bedroom - really great for us since sometimes one of us gets up earlier and/or goes to bed later than the other. Plus, the common space of the posada is spectacular - spacious, breezy, incredible views. As other reviewers have stated, everything here is gorgeously and thoughtfully decorated, handmade, unique and colorful. The place was perfect for us and at $125/nt - end of season deal - it seemed a bargain as well, for all the space and seclusion we got. As previously mentioned, Eva is an amazing manager - kind, friendly, available, helpful, accommodating. And the welcome margaritas were great! We truly had no complaints at all. Just a few words of advice to others:
- The place is what I'd call "high-end rustic." It is luxurious but not in a typical or sterile way - for instance, our unit had no a/c (we didn't need it, though - ceiling fans and screened windows open to the breeze are just fine), no tv, no stereo, no glass windows, etc (again, we didn't need any of those things! - but perhaps some people would.
- You could manage without a car here, but it's a bit out of the way, so unless you don't mind calling taxis whenever you want to get groceries or go anywhere, you'd be better off with a rental car here. There are several good restaurants within easy walking distance, though, so if you're content with that, you may be fine here. But we had a car and were happy to have it, for the flexibility, even though we didn't use it much. It's very fun to drive up the road to Majahua in the morning and buy fresh fish and lobsters right from the fishing boats that have just come in (and it'd be too far to walk all the way there and back on a regular basis, for most people!)
- Another reviewer was upset about not having known to go grocery shopping in Zihua on the way here, but we didn't have the energy to do that and frankly didn't find it necessary. We cooked all meals for ourselves and were fine with what was available in town - rice, veggies, avocadoes, garlic, fruits, and the aforementioned fresh fish and lobster (oh, and fresh corn tortillas, too!) But yes, if you have more wide-ranging grocery needs, they may not be met in town.
- Beware if you are wheat or gluten sensitive - the granola served in the morning contains wheat flakes - we didn't know, so unfortunately my partner had a reaction.
- The place advertises that there is snorkeling available, but there really isn't, at least not from shore - there are too many waves. There are, however, lovely tidepools you can go and sit in and just watch the fish. (Again, not a problem for us.)
- Some people might miss the absence of a pool (though you are allowed to use the pool at a nearby hotel - but, it's a bit of a walk in the heat, and not like having a pool right there. A minor inconvenience though.

Truly an amazing place, unbelievable location, super quiet, restful, peaceful, gorgeous, oh, and did I say quiet? (except for the roar of the ocean, which, yes, is LOUD!) (But if you are someone who likes a more "jazzy" atmosphere, you can go next door to Hacienda Eden for meals and be surrounded by people, get free wifi there too, salsa nights and gift store etc. Not our cup of tea, but convenient to have it right there.)

Again, we were delighted by this place - it's perfect for us.

Room Tip: If you're going to stay "at home" much while here, the Casita de Pelicanos is totally...

We just returned from our 9th stay at La Posada de los Raqueros. Obviously we love the place. This area of Mexico is a true jewel on the Pacific. Are you are looking for long stretches of sparsely populated beaches, with no jet skis or parasailing? Do you want to follow an oyster diver off of the beach and having them shucked and on your plate within a half hour of them being harvested? Here you will find wonderful friendly local people, perfect weather (not a drop of rain in the 9 years we have been coming in Feb) and long tranquil days, without TV or telephones. If this area sounds good to you then you can't pick a better place to stay than Raqueros. It has to best location in the area, on a beautiful bay, wonderfully landscaped grounds and a great and caring staff. Falling asleep to the sounds of the waves on comfortable beds is just heaven. I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back next year, and the next and the next and.....well you get the picture.

Alright, I'm a little biased, but we have been coming to Posada de los Raqueros for the last 10 years, which ought to say something about the property, its management, and the setting in general. With regard to the property: this is a unique place with a common "casa grande" where the daily breakfast is provided, impromptu socializing occurs, and thru which information can be obtained (or services booked) through the very knowledgeable (and friendly) resident manager, Eva. There are two beautiful quartos to rent, a larger, two-story house with all amenities and a kitchen, and two smaller casitas with outdoor kitchens (one of them fronting right on the beach!). Manzanillo Bay is a little jewel of a bay with great swimming, good snorkeling, and a little surf break. Raqueros has a great aspect to it, well-positioned for viewing the sunset every evening with the guests (who quickly become friends). Local vendors come by the property daily with their truckloads of the freshest fruit, vegetables and fish...making it easy to prepare some of your own meals (or banding together with some of your new friends to create a feast for all). The quick walk to the little fishing village of Majahua provides the authentic, small-town dining experiences one comes to Mexico to sample...or you can easily find good food in a couple of restaurants on the beach, just steps away from Los Raqueros.

This is a place to relax, walk, swim...and reconnect. I'll be back for Trip #11!

This time was our second visit to Raqueros. Both times were memorable visits. This most recent time was for a week in January - a pleasant escape from the cold of central Mexico. The genial manager, Eva, met us upon arrival and showed us to our room. She checked back with us to find out about any special wants and to acquaint us with the resort. Eva is an excellent resource for things to do, places to eat, and the like in Troncones. She will make reservations for you at most places you choose to visit.
Raqueros is a wonderful beach front resort. Manzanillo Bay is just outside your door and the beach is incredible. Walks, swims, sunsets! Most guests gather on the beach every day for the sunset and toast the setting sun.
Breakfast is served every day and the kitchen is available for guests to cook their own meals at other times of the day. The fruit and vegetable truck and the fish truck stop by daily. Eating on the large terrazzo in the tropical environment is always a pleasant experience.
If relaxing is big on your agenda this is the place for you!

Our relaxing time began as soon as we arrived in Raqueros. We were shown to the casita "Mariposa" by the very friendly and ever smiling Eva, the resident manager of Raqueros. We were invited to get ourselves organised before we were to come to the beach for the late afternoon ritual of watching the sun go down over the beautiful Manzanillo Bay. "Lord, take me now!" It never gets old. The owner and his wife, Hans & Angie, arranged for a sunset cruise on the catamaran "Picante". What a wonderful experience that was ... another "Lord, take me now" moment. I am already looking forward to the next time.
