What a find! Eden Beach Hacienda is a boutique hotel nestled in the center of Manzanillo Bay, just north of Troncones, Mexico. The ambiance is relaxed, coastal Mexico. Eden has a variety of accommodations including suites, rooms, and bungalows. For years my wife and I have stayed in a bungalow. While all rooms enjoy easy beach access and are all well appointed, we are particularly fond of the bungalow’s secluded open-air showers. What a treat to rinse while gazing at the sky through palm trees fronds.
Should you choose to stay put your entire time there…no problem; there is an on-site restaurant with an unobstructed ocean view. Troncones is a few miles south (a quick cab ride back and forth for about eight dollars) and it has a variety of restaurants. Just north of the Hacienda is the small fishing village of Majaha. Many nights we’d find our selves strolling the half mile there to enjoy the local fare…red snapper, octopus, and shrimp. From sea to plate a journey less than twenty yards!
If you wish to be indolent and do nothing it’s a fine choice to loll away the day reading and napping to the surf gentle cadence. There’s a rimless pool for those who don’t find swimming in the ocean appealing. If you’re a birder an early morning walk will be amply rewarded. It’s not unusual to spot fifty to sixty varieties within just a few hours. There are tide pools to explore, surfing and kayaking for the more adventurous. Costal boat trip can be arranged with ease.
The owners, Jim and Eva, live on site. They’ve anticipated most every wish and those they haven’t are graciously accommodated. Massages and pedicures can be arranged for very reasonable rates. Free Wi-Fi allows contact with the outside world for those who wish to stay connected, and a serene atmosphere for those who don’t.
If you’re looking for the high-rise-tower, all-you-can-eat-drinks-included experience I wouldn’t recommend the Hacienda, but if you get it…you get it!
