There is not much beach here but a short distance to the South offers a long beach and to the north, a short beach, both can be accessed easily. I would love to go back and I am sure that I can be confident that my recommendation would be appreciated by everyone. Food was good at all restaurants.

The rooms are very well appointed, spacious and cleaned to perfection daily. The food at the buffets have a fantastic variety of food and was amazing.

This was our first trip to Manzanillo. Probably our last but that would have nothing to do with the resort as the resort was one of the very best. Barcelo and Sunwing were offering the resort at a very good price for the week we went so over 1/2 the plane ended up at the same resort. Barcelo handled the...

Enjoying their small private beach, yet having easy access to the large public beach next door provided the best of both worlds. The lobby is comfortable and beautiful and the pianist that plays every evening adds that touch of class. We enjoyed Sunwing's airport transport to the hotel, but decided to take a taxi to the airport on our return...

Beautiful resort, the staff was amazing and the food was excellent. Fantastic location. The Italian a la carte was easily the best place to eat. Close enough to all shopping and the local market on Saturday is a short walk away! Would return for sure!
