Tesoro or Gran Festivall?

We are thinking of going to Manzanillo for the 1st time. We are travelling with our 10 & 15 year old boys, so we are looking for a bigger unit. We are not fussy travellers, the resort does not have to be new, just like great service and clean.

We've usually stay at 3 * like El Cid Granada in Mazatlan or Club Amigo in Holguin. I've been reading reviews of both but seem to be equal complaints. Which do you recommend?

Which has a nicer beach for swimming? Do either have snorkeling?

Thanks for any info you can give.

If you google "gran festival activities manzanillo" you will find some trip advisor reviews and pictures.

I know they have a couple of water slides and a number of activities.

I haven't stayed at either but myself, I like the location of gran festival.

The beach is just across the street over the overpass. It is santiago bay and is a large beach.

The tesoro is on playa audencia and is a very small beach/bay.

You can take an afternoon boat cruise that tours santiago bay and then stops by the sunken ship to allow for snorkeling. (Pacifico Tours) They have a bigger boat.
