TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Alondra Barra de Navidad
The hotel La Alondra was our second choice not realizing how humid the city would be this time of year. Our first choice didn't have air conditioning. The A/C was much appreciated after a day on the beach with son and wind. Staff was extremely pleasant and Jose at the Aquabar made great Margritas and Pina Colladas! Rooms were spotless the pool and beach access the best! There seemed to be quite a bit of beach erosion which was concerning. Hope they can get that stable.

There I am in the shower and after a few minutes - "Bill the water is still cold - Bill the water is still cold - BILL THE WATER IS STILL COLD!" That's when he looked and the problem discovered - the pilot light wouldn't stay lit so no burner - which never got completely solved - a fork was used the next ...
... It would be a good place to stay for a week if you wanted relaxation and wonderful walks for miles on the beach. My favourite picture comes from La Manzanilla. It shows a young Mexican sitting on a concrete pad with a bottle of beer and a dog lying on its back. Life is slow in Mexico.
The sand bar (barra) in Barra de Navidad had a pedestrian walkway which brought us past a surfing area where all the young kids gave us a surfing display.
