I loved Villa Don Manuel for so many reasons.. It was a tranquil garden oasis, steps away from a beautiful and expansive beach. Toby and Claudia were exceptional hosts, attending to my group's every need and cooking the most delicious and authentic meals I have have ever had. The pool is clean and inviting and the perfect place to relax...

Our 8 day stay with Claudia and Tobi was wonderful in every way. Villa Don Manuel is a well maintained, clean, quiet, peaceful, safe haven in a beautiful authentic Mexican fishing village. A delicious breakfast was served each day, and our hosts were always available to help us get around to enjoy the local attractions and activities, local taxi service...

If you can't afford a beach house, please give them a visit, you'll feel like you do actually have one... Service is excellent, they are extremely friendly and always smiling. Turtles everywhere, cheap, peaceful, excellent and pretty nice rooms, breakfast is homemade with heart. and changes everyday. Definitely recommend it.

Claudia and Tobi have created a treasure that I'm tempted not to tell of in the hopes that it never changes. Our comfortable and very tastefully designed rooms stood in the midst of palm trees and a lush, colourful garden tended with utmost care. Every morning our rooms were cleaned and sheets and towels changed. After an early morning walk...

Went with an Audubon bird.watching group so nearness to the lagoons was a plus. Beach across small street lined with palms and great for long walks. Villa Don Manuel excellent, quiet and restful and food delicious. Setting in palms, flowers, ponds and a nice swimming pool could not have been better. Proximity to picturesque Zihaunajuato an asset . Will recommend...

For each of the past three years we have been taking small groups of Americans and Canadians for week long yoga retreats to the Villa Don Manuel in the Barra de Potosi. Each year has been a wonderful experience. From the moment we started planning these retreats with our hosts, Claudia & Toby, we were met with only the greatest...

So glad I avoided Ixtapa and went out on a limb with Barra de Potosi, and in particular Villa Don Manuel. As my wife said upon returning to the grounds one night, "this place is enchanted, if I lived here I'd never leave." This pretty much sums it up. And as for Barra de Potosi itself, it made Zihuatanejo feel...
