We just got back from 11 days at Hotel La Posada and we can see why they have so many repeat customers. We didn't want to stay in a big resort and found Hotel La Posada on the Internet. It looked like fun - all bright pink and right on the beach, and at $58 U.S. a night, it was half what we usually pay for a hotel room.
As others have said, the staff members, most of whom have been there decades, are terrific. Juan, the owner, is a hands-on kind of guy and made sure we had everything we needed. He literally went the extra mile and filled in when a guide didn't show up to take us a tour. The rooms were clean, the breakfasts were standard American-style dishes, and the location is right on the beach.
After a few days of getting used to things (like a fan in our room we called "Senor Frog"), we fell into a pattern of swimming in the ocean right in front of the hotel, taking a dip in the pool, reading our books in the fabulous great room or in beach chairs looking out at the ocean, and talking to the other guests. It makes a big difference when there's no TV. It creates community.
We used public buses or cabs to get around and found Manzanillo to be a safe and fun place to visit. It's not 100% focused on tourism so that made it interesting as well. We were lucky to be there for the Revolution Day parade, which was terrific.
If you want a great (and cheap) vacation in a balmy climate in a bright pink B&B with terrific staff, then contact Hotel La Posada.
