Not quite sure what all the trip advisor fuss is about this property, where we stayed 3 nights in Nov 2013. The Las Brisas area has, to quote Alexander McCall Smith, a sense of reduced circumstances about it. The property is located at the end of Las Brisas near the sea entrance of the port. I loved watching the container ships being towed into the port of Manzanillo and seeing the fishing vessels; others may want a more idyllic beachfront setting, so should not choose this location. The hotel serves a decent breakfast (included with our rate) and has a few lunch offerings, but after 2:30 you are on your own food-wise. The closest restaurants are a 15-20 minute walk away, which we were glad to make down a well-lit boulevard. However individuals who don’t wish to walk that far will need to take a taxi for food service. There is not much to do at the property which has basic rooms, decent beach and smallish pool. Internet service erratic. I get the vibe of a small independent hotel in Pacific Beach (California) in part because the clientele were mostly Americans, some ex-patriates from inland Mexico wanting a break at the seashore, of a certain quirkiness. Check in didn’t happen until hotel day 2, due to the inexperience of a new front desk employee. However a day before planned departure, surly innkeeper was wondering why we were still there. We had paid cash for three nights and had many confirmatory e-mails with hotel management about our length of stay. It wasn’t our obligation to present him with all those emails and our receipts, but that’s what he petulantly required. Eventually I received a weak “I’m sorry for the misunderstanding” from him. Logistics and hospitality do not appear to be the hotel’s strong suits, so be forewarned. We do appreciate that the hotel linked us up with DaniTours with whom we enjoyed a great ATV trip. Despite that benefit, we do not plan to return to Hotel La Posada in Las Brisas
