I stayed at Hotel Estelar, Grand Playa, Manzanillo in July 2013 along with 55 other persons from Trinidad. Overall, it was a good experience but there were some negative ones as well. For such a small hotel, the staff did not always do what they were supposed to, for example, during meal times, dirty plates were left for a long time on the tables. Many times there was no water available to make coffee or tea and when you asked, it took a long time to arrive. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was friendly however, the architectural design does not suit a rainy day. When my group was checking out, we got soaked as the overhead covering on the pathways was not designed for shelter from water and the place flooded very quickly. It was not a nice experience to go on a plane cold and wet. There were no umbrellas available when we asked. The meals were quite good but a bit limited in variety however the pizza was great. The hotel was quite far from the tourist attractions, about 45 minutes but this was not too bad. I stayed on the ground floor and so just had to open my door to get to the pool but the noise from the next room came right through the walls.
