“Superb Spot on Manzanillo Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

Angie and Hans maintain a little piece of paradise which they share easily with their guests. There is a colonial feeling to the house and grounds as the maids, maintenance workers and gardeners move amongst the great columns of the large house, tending to their daily chores. Different pathways through the landscape allow visitors and hosts to move to and from the beach discreetly
.
A continental style breakfast is provided with excellent coffee, fruit and granola. Angie and Hans have a friendly old refrigerator "Pancho", who dispenses ice cold refreshments to guests on an honor system. There is a large tiled kitchen, fully equipped, if you want to prepare your own meals.

The beach is sublime, with luxurious waves for good swimming, surfing and boogie boarding. The water is crystal clear, at times, you can see the fish go by. In the evening we accompanied baby turtles in their pilgrimage into the sea. Manzanillo Bay is an exclusive area, muy tranquilo in stark contrast to the beaches of Zihautanejo. Not a lot of people on this beach the three times I've been here. Los Raqueros provides a very set of umbrellas, padded lounges and canvas sling chairs on their beach frontage. Hans makes a good margarita and is an interesting fellow to chat with. Angie is a lovely, thoughtful host also.

There are three restaurants to choose from on Manzanillo Bay, in truth the food is decent, not mind blowing. You are expected to tip well as the locals don't get paid much, are on a relatively short tourist season and little else goes on there for revenue.

The local taxis charge way too much (700 pesos) to take you back to the airport, in my opinion, when you can get there there for half that with an out of town taxi. There are difficulties between the different taxi syndicates. There is a bus which runs the highway outside of Troncones to and from Ixtapa/Zihau regularly so that's an option if you are more intrepid and patient.

I was quite pleased on arrival to find that our casa and the entire (small) facility was beautiful. It is nicely designed, decorated, and landscaped. It is very clean and well maintained. It is sited on a most gorgeous sandy beach of maybe 200 yards long with rocky outcroppings at either end. Hans and Angie are very welcoming and generous hosts. They provided a nice breakfast daily and bottled water in our rooms that were both unexpected. My sons and I attended a surfing camp with isamexico that I also recommend. I hope to visit again with my wife one day.

We happened to be La Posada de los Raqueros during American Thanksgiving. Not being American was no problem to some other visitors from Chicago that we met there. The four of us had our hosts, Hans and Angie arrange to get some fresh, but amazingly inexpensive, Pacific rock lobster for us. This is one of the several reasons we love Raqueros and continue to go back. Hans & Angie will do whatever they can to make our vacation memorable. Hans, himself a diver, was happy to organise a dive trip for me. The next time we want to split our time between their condo in Zihuatanejo and Raqueros. What a vacation that would be.

We just returned from a weekend getaway at Raqueros and stayed in Casita de los Pelicanos. This was paradise! Our very own casita on the beach, complete with great outdoor spaces and wonderful little kitchen. Even grilled some locally caught lobsters on the grill area supplied by our lovely hosts, Hans and Angie. I can't say enough about this place, at least not before I book our next vacation there! If you are looking for the perfect quiet beach getaway - this is it!

It was everything I expected from the web site pictures, plus more. I could see the surf break from my bed when I woke up in the morn. Early morn surf, then great breakfast of granola yogurt, coffee, etc. The owners Know How to Take CARE of their Guests!
I will be coming back. Thanks for all.

My wife and I booked for one night and ended up staying for 12! We had planned on moving around the area a little staying in different places but we ended up being very comfortable at Los Raqueros! Nice clean rooms or you can rent a little Casita with cooking facilities. We surf so it was awesome to walk right out the door to surf Manzanillo point,( a little rocky, not for beginners there, but La Saladita, 20 min drive north has a friendlier wave to learn). There is some nice swimming and snorkeling to be done right out front of Los Raqueros with great sea shell picking too. Sunsets are world class and there are a couple of restaurants to walk to. This is a wonderful little guest house with great hosts! There are pricier, newer places around to rent ,but you don't really have to, you'll be happy here!

I can close my eyes and still see the absolute beauty of these Bungalows. Upon arrival we were greeted by Hans and Angie. The 2 most welcoming people I have ever met. With a cold beverage and a smile, I knew right away we were in the right place.
The bungalow was better than expected. Very very clean. The colours of the bungalow, Trees and of course the open ocean at our door step were extremely soothing.
During our stay, we saw multiple lizards and birds. The Iguanas and geckos were a real welcome sight. I sure wish I could have Barking Geckos sing me to sleep every night.
With breakfast ready for us every morning upon wake up, we knew our day got started right. Fresh fruit, Yogourt, Juice and of course Mexican coffee.
The beach was out of this world. With frequent visits from sea turtles and big waves, You just can't beat it!!!!
I highly recamend this rental property to anyone wanting to escape the weight of the outside world!!!!
