“Two tickets to Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

I just got back last night from our 4 day stay at the Inn, and I cannot give this place enough praise. This place had come highly recommended from a friend who had come for his honeymoon and it certainly lived up to every expectation. It's on the quiet side, so if you're looking to unwind and relax this is the place. And the surf is excellent.

The aesthetics of the grounds itself are breathtaking. From infinity pool overlooking the ocean to the lounging area overlooking the beach you don't even need to leave unless it's to get in the water to catch some waves. The cabanas are spacious and charming each with a beautiful private patio with amazing views of the beach and grounds as well. Super clean. We stayed in Cabana 8 which in my opinion had the best view of the ocean with the perfect amount of seclusion. We could hear the waves crashing from inside at night.

The entire staff was beyond warm and welcoming. Belen the general manager is a dream, she helped us arrange taxis as well as a day excursion to another beach to surf. She was absolutely wonderful to be around and very helpful with anything we needed.

There is one restaurant with a full bar that serves at all times throughout the day into evening. It is open, warmly lit and lovely with another great view overlooking the pool and beach. Same can be said for the food. Not one thing on the menu that we didn't love. And we ate a lot. I would definitely recommend the Burger with the mole sauce, the surf and turf, the fried chicken and the guacamole. The portions are definitely on the larger side. And for dessert the coconut ice cream that comes served in a real coconut is easily the best ice-cream we have ever had. A must try during your stay.

We will absolutely come back. Everyone from staff to fellow guests were so pleasant and friendly, you almost felt a party of a big family. We were sad to leave this place.

Room Tip: All are quiet at night. Huge ceiling fans keep the cabanas very cool and comfortable. Cabanas 1 and...

Just like almost all the other reviews here say... This place is great! Belen, who I think is the resort hostess, was so helpful, warm, and welcoming. My cabana (3) was nice and comfortable with a direct view of the ocean. The food was good, but thought the use of mashed potatoes in many of the dishes was a bit odd. The owners installed a new beautiful art glass chandelier in the restauant while I was there. Very nice! It's a relaxing place to chill out and soak up some sun away from the tourist crowds.

Thanks for the input- We just finished adjusting the light tones on that new restaurant centerpiece and it came out great
Agreed on those mashed potatos but they seem to be quite popular - especially the blend with the cheese in the chile rellenos as it fluffs them up. Maybe a bean option is in order.......
Thanks again and I will be sure Belem gets your comments!

The Manager Belem was nothing but the best host. The food was the best Ive ever had, No joke. Try for yourselves ,especially the fish tacos and the coconut ice cream. And for a professional photographer like me, you can take a bad picture there. Will be back soon for sure

Room Tip: Bangalos are awesome and lots of fans, Slept with covers on. But if you are more like a "Ritz C...

This is a jewel of a place to stay, at an out of the way village on the coast in southwest Mexico. It is charming, clean and comfortable, with a friendly staff and good food at the restaurant. I enjoy watching the surf and the surfers, with beautiful waves coming in one after another. It's not a place to go to be entertained--we love to read, relax, and chat with other guests, and The Inn is perfect for that. There are no phones or TV in the rooms, the TV in the restaurant/lounge is rarely on, and there are no amusements nearby. But the weather was warm, the ocean and the pool were warm, and the lush grounds give a comforting surroundings.

Room Tip: From every casita, one can hear the waves, for a perfect, soothing sleep experience. Since there ar...

Wanting to get away from everything and knowing that our vacation dollars could go further in Mexico when compared to other places, we chose the Inn @ Manzanillo Bay after researching sites as this and reaching out for information. So, base on a friend's recommendation we flew into Ixtapa which is then just ~40 minute drive north from the airport. This turned out to be a great decision! My only other previous trip in Mexico was from SDSU to Ensenada for an overnight stay and my wife's was a week in Cozumel. What a delightful surprise! Once dropped off in the parking area we walked into a Tropical Oasis! Wonderful bungalows surrounding an inviting swimming pool and meticulously manicured gardens, all within ~100 yards of the beach! We had #2, and slept so well with the rolling surf sounds at night. When on vacation to unknown places, one often worries about places to eat and quality of the food. No Worries here. Exceptional meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and deserts are served at your convenience, made to order, not to mention the full bar service with always COLD beer (the weather can be quite warm)! As our 2 favorite foods are Mexican and Sushi, we were thrilled by the menu choices. The owner's method of cooking Chili Relleno is by far the best I have ever had! The other favorite of ours was the seared Ahi Tuna salad, perfection! The staff is exceptional as well, always promoting an atmosphere of being guests at Their House! Although this was our first time there, it will NOT be our last as it is now on the short list!

Room Tip: #2!!! great ocean view and slightly set back.

This is probably our 12th visit to the Inn at Manzanillo Bay and we are already planning for lucky 13! Just read the last three reviews and while I echo everything the first two had to say, I was disappointed to read from a travel agent that she apparently expects to be fawned over. That's not what this place is about! This is a casual, relaxed beach hotel where pretentious is not a word. From my observations, the owner and manager are friendly and helpful to all. I have seen him behind the bar cooking and have been have been served both food and drink by both of them. I see them mingle with other guests and even saw them having a drink with some. This time we went with a couple who like us, enjoy wine and champagne. We sent an email earlier asking if they have champagne so we could start our days with a mimosa. The response was, "Yes, and I can get more!" Belem in the kitchen speaks fluent English and is warm and accommodating. Food continues to be top notch- don't miss the pineapple ice cream- served in an actual pineapple- stunning presentation! Still love the Oaxaca burger and the seared ahi salad was fabulous! And of course-the margaritas are the best on the beach- and from what we tasted in town, the best around! We'll be back!

Room Tip: All are great- rooms 1 and 8 are ocean front but you can hear the waves no matter where you are and...

Booked this trip on Zozi.com for my boyfriends birthday and it was exactly what we were looking for. Great little beach bungalows (just 10) around the pool and overlooking the beach. Almost has a Bed and Breakfast feel. You see/meet talk with other guests while having meals or just walking by. We really enjoyed the food and we didn't hold back. It averaged abou $80.00 per day. Part of our 'deal' was surfboards, kayak, or paddle surfing. I was lazy and enoyed reading on our huge patio listening to the waves so I didn't indulge, but my boyfriend took the Kayak out.

Staff was great, room was great, beach was great... no complaints from this So. Cal Girl.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 8. Closest to the Beach.
