In January 2009 I visited this facility in Manzanillo. Went back to it yesterday and obviously the facility has not been maintained to the standards that I would expect. Maintenance has not been done to keep the rooms clean and to not show wear. It still has fabulous views and a great pool, but I think it dropped from a...

We were at first surprised that room was not exactly gorgeous, but we soon got over that. Yes, the drawers and cupboard doors were not perfect, but everything else was wonderful. Great service, great restaurant with great prices. Be sure to have guacamole. It's huge! The grounds were beautiful, as well as the views from every room. The pool was...

My review is strictly for the restaurant as we have never stayed at the hotel. We have been going to the restaurant for many years, I "think" that it has possibly changed hands several times during this time. Recently my husband and I went for dinner. My husbands meal was red snapper and he was delighted with it. I chose...

We booked Dolphin Cove Inn for three nights in August. When we arrived, we were assigned a room in Building 8, about mid-way down the mountain, which meant we had to climb down 105 steps, and then walk down a narrow, spiral stairway in the building to get to our room. Anyone with any physical limitation is going to have...

The water was warm and clear and the breezes were cooling. The resort is beautifully landscaped with lovely tropical flowers everywhere, lining beautiful pathways and stairs. The restaurant is wonderful and...

My sister messaged me from Colima to tell me that her kids had to leave a different hotel in Manzanillo because they were trying to charge them extra money in addition to what they had already paid on hotels.com, so I had to hurry and find them another place to stay.
