Travel Blogs from Manzanillo
I didn't think Manzanillo was a popular tourist destination compared to some other cities like nearby Puerto Vallarta to the north or Acapulco to the south. Imagine my surprise when I embarked on a packed Boeing 777. I hadn't heard of this city until a good friend moved there.
Now the airport is tiny and obviously not designed to handle …

We were due to see C.d.S Ka show but one of their performers fell 90 feet to her death during a live performance so the show was cancelled UFN. We found some great beer houses, gambled and lost $20 and after five nights, were ready to leave Sweatlands. We arrived at Ross and Glens a week ago and have been really enjoying the downtime and pool and ...
... corners and walked down other streets... local color was everywhere. Brightly painted houses cascaded down the hillsides behind the downtown streets. People were friendly and smiled and greeted us with "Ola". When we walked back toward the waterfront, we stopped at an outdoor cafe to have a beer. Although our stop was short, it was nice to visit an area we had not seen before.

Tonight's dinner was incredible! Yellow fish curry with rice...soooo good.
I got to see more dolphins on watch tonight. Well, mostly I saw streaks of bioluminescence where the path of the dolphin disturbed the little guys. Pretty amazing to see. Pitch black out, millions of stars above, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dolphin Cove Inn Manzanillo
Pure relaxation at theDolphinCove Inn in ManzanilloD
The Dolphin Cove Inn was so lush and beautiful! The people were warm as was the water. Every day was a delight! A wonderful spot to slow down and just relax in the tropical breeze.
Beautiful and Restful
My husband and our grandchildren loved our stay at Dolphin Cove Inn. The swimming pool and restaurant are excellent.
We would recommend this hotel to our friends.
A great place!
The suites are superb--clean, well equipped and maintained, with magnificant balcony and sliding door views of the bay. Quiet, with good privacy. The pool and food were good, too. We had a wonderful time, and would love to go back again. f
My husband and I just got back from a very relaxing week at the Dolphin Cove Inn. Our one bedroom unit was not posh by any means but it was comfortable and roomy. The terrace was huge and very private and the views spectacular. The grounds are absolutely lovely. Yes, there are alot of steps but they are manageable. The restaurant does not have a very large menu but the food and service was good. There are many good and reasonably priced restaurants just a short cab ride away and the Las Hadas and Karmina Palace resorts are within walking distance. As an aside, if you want a massage, ask the concierge to set one up with a service that comes to your room. My husband had the best massage of his life for 300 pesos/hour ($30.00)! All in all, we had a lovely, low key and relaxing vacation.
Stayed in a studio suite. Beautiful view and excellent beds. Be prepared to walk up and down numerous steps to get anywhere. Was there the week after Thanksgiving and it was very quiet. Would recommend for its value, but there is nothing fancy here.
Dolphin Cove Inn has the view and location of Las Hadas at a reasonable price. The suite we were in had a huge terrace with gorgeous flowers overlooking the bay, framed by coconut palms. It was breathtaking. The rooms were stark white, but restful. The beds were excellent. Any maintenance item noted was attended to the same day. The staff was very accomodating and gracious. We were able to get around the property fine - even with one young child. Lots of stairs - no need for a stair master workout - but the walks to the office, the pool, and the beach were worth it. The website is very accurate about what to expect - the one thing I wish I knew before going was to expect that few (if any) merchants take credit cards. Most prefer pesos. Once I knew that, I was fine, but expected it to be more like Baja (CSL). Our limited Spanish proved helpful, and a phrase book helped us even more. All in all, it was a great place to relax for a week, and entertain all 5 of us.
Stayed in late Feb.03. The owner's guidebook overstates the quality of the property although the location is good in terms of the neighborhood and view. Property, part of a condo complex, situated between Las Hadas and the Kamina Palace. Our one bedroom suite was large with great deck. Large kitchenette area. Some deferred maintenance which, if taken care of, would make it much nicer. Guidebook info understates the challenging steps to access pool area and beach area and restaurant. Leak in kitchen sink drain pipe; lost water for a few hours one morning and shower diverter valve needed replacement. Hot water was not until hot water heater thermostat was adjusted. Relaxing during week - got crowded on weekend with lots of kids around pool but easy enough to go to beach area. Great view of MZ bay but there's a factory of some kind to the south spewing smoke and whatever into the sky every day spoiling the otherwise great view because of the haze. I think we prefer Ixtapa.
My husband and I just got back from a week at Dolphin Cove. We had great time. Very relaxing. The view from our room was one of the best we've ever had. If you need a long stretch of beach right in front of your hotel, this isn't for you....their website shows exactly what the rooms and beach are like. If you like small hotels, yet like some conveniences of larger ones, this is it. The hotel staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The on-site restaurant was good with reasonable prices and beach service.When they warn about lots of steps, they aren't kidding. But we are just moderately fit, and we had no problems.
My wife and I, plus 7year old daughter, loved our 1bedroom condo at Dolphin Cove. We have been to Mexico many times (Baja, Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Acapulco, PV, etc.) but I have to say this place had the prettiest view of all. Our huge terrace overlooking the sea had bougainvillia, citrus trees and assorted other flowers. Beautiful! The condo itself was huge, with full kitchen, washer dryer, bedroom with 2 queen beds and nicely (if starkly) decorated large living room. (I wish the A/C's were quieter).
Very hard location to find. Lack of proper signs. Studios very stark. All white (newly painted), no pictures, heavy metal chairs with plastic seat coverings(stick to your body). Chairs need rubber padding on legs to avoid noisy movement. Maid used sheets that were too small for the beds. That was corrected the nest day.
