Last year (xmas - New Years) our family of 10 came down to La Manzanilla to visit a friend. After a long search through Boutique Hotels of Mexico, we discovered Chanti Mare which opened the week we were to arrive.
What a gem. A wonderful family has opened their home as a small boutique hotel right on the most beautiful beach - a long crescent shaped white sand beach. The rooms were modern and with A/C and everything worked. Right outside is the pool and thatched palapa open air restaurant and bar, with the most amazing inventive food.
Chef Greg, originally from Canada, is helping the family establish the restaurant from his home base in Guadalajara. We had margaritas and fresh guacamole every afternoon, and then the most incredible dinners - fresh grilled lobster, fish, mexican dishes, curries - amazing.
The family has a vision and cares about their guests in a way that is so unusual in this day and age.
A perfect place to stay, especially for extended family vacations or a group of friends, when you can basically have the entire place to yourself.
Only wishing we had returned this Winter!
