Greetings Fellow Travellors
Glad to see you are thinking about travelling to Mexico and particularly to Manzanillo. An excellent hotel choice is definitely the Hotel Posada. I/we stay here every time we come to Manzanillo. The atmosphere is very welcoming. Management and staff are friendly and helpful, after a few days, it feels like family. Staff turnover is very low, and it is always nice to be greeted by the same friendly smiles on arrival, each year.
A stay at the Hotel Posada is truly a unique adventure. As you enjoy your multi-choice breakfast in the quaint Mexican style leisure room/dininging room, you will have an opportunity to meet people from all over the world, and exchange experiences(in larger hotels, small talk is usually a turn-off)
Following breakfast you might choose one of the Palapa covered tables to finish your coffee, continue conversations, or just sit back and enjoy the ocean fron view of large ships coming and going from the nearby harbor. The beach front umbrella and chairs provide ocean front enjoyment, and an excellent spot to enjoy whale watching.
The location of the Posada is close to dancing and late nite walking. Manzanillo, is totally safe(now think about your own home town location...do you go walking at nite??).
A stay at the Posada is good value for an excellent holiday. Hope to meet you sometime.

We live near the city of Manzanillo and decided to make a mini holiday out of a shopping trip. We choose Hotel La Posada because of it's TA reviews. The reviews are correct. This is a really neat place to stay. It's in an interesting location, near the port. It's on a good beach with lovely views of Centro Historico and the bay. We were even entertained by whales while eating a very good breakfast (included in the price). It is a little out of the way with no nearby restaurants but if you don't have a car you can use taxis or the bus. We would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: I think that they all seemed well placed.

We absolutel love the "Pink Posada". Yes it is a basic hotel with no tv or radio in the rooms, but the accommodations are spotless, the owners Juan and Clara very friendly and always go out of their way to be helpful. This hotel is pet friendly and we always take our two furry children with us. There are tables set up outside so our poodles can join us the wonderful breakfast which is included in the price. The location couldn't be better; right on the beach with a great view of the ships entering the harbour, the whales frolicking in the bay, and the navy men excercising on the beach. The crashing waves will lull you to sleep each night.
Manzanillo has been given a bad rap lately with the US government warning about drug activity in the area, but our experience is that the only drug war we encounter is between Viagra and Cialis! The mexican people are warm and friendly and eager to share the beauty of their country with tourists.

Room Tip: My favourite is room 12 because it is a little more shaded in the late afternoon, but rooms 10 and 1...

Usually it is just my wife and I that visit this wonderful "oasis", but this time, we arrived at La Posada with 12 additional guests from Canada, plus four from our Mexican side of the family. All of our family were very impressed by this small resort. Between the old folks, the young families, the children, and the grandchildren, we had an excellent and very enjoyable week. To Luce, Crystal, Rosa, Claudia, Guille, Josue, Angel(yes, our guardian night watchman), and Clara, thank you all for everything as you went out of your way so many times for my family. You have definitely left an excellent impression of the warmth and kindness of the Mexican people, especially on our children and grand-children. To Juan, again, thank-you, for arranging side trips, tours, suggesting restaurants, making last minute changes as needed. Sorry to say Juan, but some of us will be back again. The area has been totally redone, the streets are excellent, the side walks are new, it is an very nice and safe area. The local bus stops across the street and for 6 pesos, will take you into the heart of Manzanillo, or to the main tourist area to the north. Just make sure that you read the destinations that are indicated on the front of the bus. For example: "El Centro" and "Central", one will take you to the major bus station, and the other to down town Manzanillo, "Soriana", will take you to a major shopping mall as will "Commercial". Many of these buses do not go in a straight line, but are great to ride. Just take a few extra pesos for a taxi in case you end up where you did not plan to go. Colima city, Comala, Tecoman, Suichitlan, Barra, Melaque, are all fantastic side tours, and they are very safe. As far as food goes: some nights we ate out at very good restaurants, and some nights, Clara just ordered mexican pizza for us at the Posada. An Excellent breakfast is included with the room, plus a very good lunch can be had at the hotel. A couple of blocks to the north, is an excellent family run restaurant called "Cualita's". Outside it does not look like much, but the family service and the food is wonderful. The first time the "entire herd from Canada" went there, our youngest grand child ended up playing "football" with their youngest grand child, and we have pictures of him "awarding" the ball to her. My family is not the type for 4 or 5 star all-inclusives, but we travel to various countries to enjoy the people, history, and scenery. Just remember! safe, secure, friendly, variety, speak a little Spanish, and enjoy. My wife and I are definitely going back again and again to enjoy the area, the staff, and the other people that love "La Posada"

My husband and I spent two weeks in room 19 at this awesome place.The owner, Juan and his staff are the best ever! Juan was always there and available for any questions or help. His staff was very hard working and kind. The staff keep the place spotless. We went for xmas and New Years, and there was lots of fun and noise but room 19 is away from the pool area so once inside it was totally quiet. We totally recommend you try it out! You will not be disappointed. The quietest time to go would be January 6th on. That way the kids are back in school and you really could have it all to yourself!!! Right on the beach too, and near a ship port so lots of interesting ships to watch come and go. We cannot wait to get back! Thanks Pink Posada!!! Say hi to Crystal from Kris and Pete. She is the cutest Mexican waitress you would ever want to meet!!

Room Tip: Room 19 has air conditioner, fridge, stove, microwave, and its own private balcony. Best room there...

This was our first visit to Manzanillo and Hotel La Posada was everything the reviews said we could expect. We'll be among those returning again and again. The service was wonderful, with great breakfasts and sparkling clean rooms. The beach was clean and the water was warm and inviting. You can even schedule a massage right on the beach! The staff is eager to assist with any activities you might want and the location in Las Brisas is superb. If you're looking for 5-star luxury, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a wonderful, friendly, clean hotel where you can feel right at home, this is for you!

Room Tip: Room 15 is upstairs with a great balcony and ocean view. You can leave your sliding glass door open...

Another trip back to the beach and La Posada for the holiday. It was great to return to this wonderful place and find again; nice clean room, great food, and excellent service.
The staff (most of them there for years) went out of their way to provide anything the guests needed – I know because I helped translate some requests; most of the staff is bilingual, at that moment one was not. La Posada is located in an newly refurbished area with new sidewalks, road and landscaping, the bus stop to town is still right across the street. Great value and quality experience.

Room Tip: whatever your needs - just ask, they have many options
