Fantastic location and beautiful property, great room. Food was excellent. If you don’t speak Spanish you have to work hard to understand! Employees very accommodating - sunsets are absolutely beautiful!

About
Description
The Hotel ESTELAR Playa Manzanillo hotel's objective is to provide luxury, all-inclusive services on the seafront on the beautiful beaches of Manzanillo Bay. It is close to the cosmopolitan city of Cartagena de More Indias. It has a contemporary design and a very calm ambience, and our guests' first impression is of an idyllic resort to relax and unwind in. Have a dip in the pool, stroll around the beautiful lush gardens or enjoy the 24-hour drink and snack service. Less
