Gran Bahia Real Resort

We are a group of four considering going to Manzanillo and staying at the Gran Bahia. How does this place compare to Nuevo Vallarta? How are the rooms, beach etc. We aren't big partiers so aren't looking for night life, just at relaxing holiday somewhere warm. Also any suggestions for tours to take.

this is a lovely newly renovated hotel. Rooms are very nice, views spectacular. Food is good, staff are wonderful. Restaurants need help though. Hotel and pool very crowded with locals on the weekends.

Manzanillo is gorgeus with cobbled streets and mountains. Very strong current on the beach, not possible for swimming.

This used to be the Hotel Sierra and was bought some months ago. They repainted all the exterior but I do not know about the interior. The hotel is very busy right now for Chritmas, many from the US and Canada. I saw the beach last Monday at 6.30pm just as it was getting dark and there were many people still enjoying the ocean - the beach is big enough to not get really crowded.

Stayed here several years ago. It is a great relaxing resort.

The beach is great and does not get crowded, the food was good, and the pool staff was entertaining.

We walked over to the Las Hadas, shopped downtown, and rented a VW for a day to see real Mexico.

I would recommend this hotel and would go back again.

I just came back the place is still in need of major renovations. They have only renovated a few rooms at best. Beach has a current not easy to swim in. The pool is packed. My friends stayed at Karamina its only 4 years old also Las Hadas is better as well...Plus Gran Bahia has no night lite whatsoever the club is open twice a week only. It is very secluded if you just want to relax.

Consider Las Hadas, which has much more character, particularly if you get one of the large suites away from the main building.You will pay more for food at Las Hadas, but overall, I believe you are getting one more * than the Real. If you want a new hotel, then check out the Karmina.

Manzanillo has more charm than PVR, and also has wamer nights, by 5-10 F.
