I should know better. Never assume anything unless you have some facts to back it up. I assumed that Melaque was going to be a hyped up tourist trap town, with tourists crowding up the streets and fighting for every square inch of sand on the beach. I also thought that I would be in a city ruined by modern corporate greed with high-rise condos and hotels. But, what I found was ...

I have little memory of what we did the remainder of today as I am writing this a couple of days later and all I remember for sure is being very, very happy to get back to the boat. I immediately took a shower. I’m sure we ate dinner at some point and when we returned to our room and slept in the nice, cool a/c.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villas Los Angeles Manzanillo
This was where the various branches of my family scattered across the US came for a Thanksgiving "reunion."
Hotel Villa Los Angeles is situated on a hill with a lovely setting. It has a fabulous view and the property is well maintained. The villas are clean & well appointed with flowers and a fresh fruit bowl upon arrival. It has 26 units and was quiet at night which was lovely when you sat on the deck watching the sun sink into the ocean. The pool is a good size and is cleaned daily. The hotel is located near the beach, restaurants and shopping. We walked to the grocery store and taxied back. Patricia and Michel are usually near by and are outstanding in helping direct you to a restaurant or tour guide. They make you feel welcome as though you are a friend visiting their home. Also, the staff is helpful and never acted put out when you asked for something! We loved the area and found the people to be warm and friendly.
What a wonderful hotel!
We had a wonderful time at Hotel Villas los Angeles. It is a small, high quality boutique hotel with friendly and helpful owners, who have a team of responsive and obliging staff. We stayed in the new villas which are extremely spacious, clean and well equipped. They all have amazing views, air conditioning and high speed internet. All in all, with the swimming pool and the nearby beach, this was exactly what we were looking for in terms of a long working, but relaxing vacation.
¡Increíbles vistas! No te pierdas el Hotel Villas Los Angeles
Disfrutamos mucho de nuestra estancia y ¡recomendamos Villas Los Angeles a todo el mundo! Las fotos del sitio web nos atrajeron pero ¡apenas consiguen reflejar lo bonito que es este lugar! Nuestro apartamento de una habitación era espacioso y bien equipado, y con un buen precio. La piscina y la zona alrededor puede que haga que te olvides de ir a la playa. Las vistas de la bahía y de la ciudad desde nuestra terraza y desde la zona de la piscina eran increíbles. Las habitaciones y las instalaciones estaba muy bien cuidadas, el personal y los propietarios eran muy agradables y serviciales. Los propietarios y algunos miembros del personal también hablan inglés. Esperamos volver de nuevo.
Verdaderamente un gran sitio para relajarse y disfrutar de todas las mejores cualidades de Mazanillo, con la atenta hospitalidad de su propietario, su mujer y el personal. A diferencia de los complejos aislados, Villas Los Ángeles ofrece unas oportunidades fantásticas para probar verdaderamente lo mejor de esta parte del mundo-- la cocina regional en los restaurantes y en los puestos, la natación, el esnórquel y el buceo en la playa cercana (y relajarse en la piscina), y espacio para tenderse y disfrutar de las vistas. El propietario, Michel, nos dio buenas recomendaciones sobre tiendas y cómo moverse, lo cual es fácil en taxi-- ¡Incluso nos ayudó a conseguir un excelente "cerviche" justo en el lugar adecuado! Hay un contraste bastante fuerte con el complejo cercano, donde se dan las conferencias. Es un lugar perfecto para salir sólos, relajarse e ir a tu ritmo.
Truly a great location to relax and enjoy all the finest qualities of Manzinillo with the attentive hospitality of the owner, his wife and staff. In contrast with the isolated resorts, Villas Los Angeles offers wonderful opportunities to truly experience the best of this part of the world -- local cuisine at restaurants and from vendors, swimming, snorkling and diving from the nearby beach (and relaxing in the pool), and room to spread out and enjoy the view. The owner, Michel, gave good recommendations on shopping and getting about, which is easy by taxi -- he even helped get excellent cerviche from just the right place! Quite a contrast to a nearby resort where conferences are held. Perfect place to get out on your own, relax, and proceed at your pace.
I have visited Manzanillo many times over the years trying out different hotels until I found Villa Los Angeles. I've been back a few times now. During my last visit in August '06, I arrived from San Francisco, CA by way of Cd Guzman, Jal where I collected 10 family members to join me. When making the reservations, Michel and Soccoro were exceptionally helpful and patient answering my slew of questions and making their recommendation to ensure a memorable visit. Upon arrival and throughout our stay, everyone was sincerely helpful and pleasant.
My wife, two small children (boy/girl twins, age 71/2) spent ten days in mid August at Villas Los Angeles on the Santiago Peninsula in Manzanillo. The hotel was everything we could ask for and the owners Patricia and Michel were very gracious and went out of their way to accommodate us. Their recommendations regarding beaches, attractions and restaurants were very helpful and informative. The hotel itself is located on one of the highest elevations in the Santiago Peninsula and the views from the rooms are extraordinary. We had a suite (#106) with the kitchen, dining room and big balconies on the upper floor and the two large bedrooms (with Jacuzzi tub) and bathrooms on the lower level. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the rooms are very clean. The high speed internet connection in the room (which was important to me for keeping in touch with the office in California) worked like a charm - plug the computer in and you're on the internet. Bottled water was provided and bedding was changed daily. The kids really enjoyed the pool, with its waterfall, island and unique design and we could watch them from the comfort of the balcony.
Breathtaking views! Don't miss out on Hotel Villas Los Angeles!
We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend Villas Los Angeles to anyone! The photos on the site lured us, but they hardly do justice to how nice this place is! Our 1-bedroom villa was spacious and well-appointed, and a good value. The pool and surrounding patio area might make you forget to go to the beach. Stunning views of the bays and the city from our terrace and the pool area. The rooms and grounds were very well-maintained, staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. Owners and some staff also speak English. We hope to return again.
Just returned from a month's stay at Villas Los Angeles in Manzanillo, Mexico and it was an exceptional stay. The Villas are located on the Santiago Peninsula, on one of the highest spots, overlooking the ocean.
