... was a buzz during this time although we decided not to partake in the Pride march. There were approximately 1.5 people taking part in it. We stayed home and drank Champagne. Cheers Queers! Five nights in San Fran (credit card groaning) and off to Las Vegas. Holy ****! 46 degrees. It was like walking into a fan oven. We could understand now why many of the hotels are adjoining. Who in their right mind would want to walk out in that heat. We took in ...
... is an Indio Aztec Indian owned land at the very end of Playa Melaque on the far West end of the bay. They call it informal because it is a little primitive, meaning that they do not have the full hook ups that most other RV parks have, such as water and electric. The park has modern bathroom facilities with showers, but no hot water. We get our own water by going down to the banos and pumping water out of their well and in to a 50 gallon drum. I then bring the ...
... Plunk. The waiter put down two beers in front of us. When I looked up quizzically, the waiter informed us that one of our new friends had bought us the drinks. We looked down the long table to see him holding up his beer and saying, “cheers”. And so it began that I learned how good my Spanish could be with a loosened-up tongue.
The merriment continued for a few hours, after which we again piled onto the bus. I assumed ...

Looks like we are going to pull into Manzanillo for fuel today, we are almost there. We were going to weather Hilary there, but it sounds like she is turning out to sea and we won't have to worry about her. So ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Vista Playa De Oro Manzanillo
I would stay again
We stayed at the Playa de Oro for a week. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The grounds were immaculate and the pools very nice. There are only a few English speaking families there at a time. Most of the staff do speak English and were very helpful. We thought it was fun to experience something besides American culture. The food was marginal but good enough to get us by. The shows at night were very well done and kept us entertained. They had plenty of things for the kids to do.
Even with the food not being the greatest, we felt it was a very good value. We would definely return.
Wouldn't go back
The good part about the Vista Play de Oro was that the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. The bad thing was the food. It was very unappetizing and not at all worth the all inclusive price. We ended up eating elsewhere. Also it was very uncomfortable for us being the only caucasians at the property, especially for my teenage daughters. The resort was nothing that it was made out to be on the website. We stayed 3 nights then moved to a much nicer resort for about the same price. We won't go back to the Vista Playa de Oro but will go back to Manzanillo.
If you want to enjoy a week (or more) among the truly Mexican population, then Vista Playa de Oro. You don't come here to hob-knob with North Americans. English is not the primary language you hear.
What do you hear and see are Mexican families on holidays enjoying themselves. As for the staff at this resort, they are the best! Our room was cleaned and Flowered every day. The grounds were immaculate.
The food was authentic and delicious. Would I go again? You bet'cha.
Pretty Good Vacation
My friend and I stayed at this resort Feb 27 2004 to March 5th. We had a really good time but we were not too impressed with the food. (we don't want to see another chicken stirfry for a looong time) but everybody was very friendly, especially Juan Pedro and Antonio at the beach bar. The beach was beautiful and we had great weather all week.
The nightly entertainment was good for us young gals, and the clubs were really wild where we met a lot of interesting people...If you are looking for a relaxing cozy atmosphere you will really enjoy yourself.
Just try and make reservations for dinner at the restaurant because the buffet wasn't too good.
Won't go back
We spent a week at the Playa del Oro. I don't think they are quite ready for American tourists. The food was not good. The rooms were okay. It did not meet our standards. I have stayed at other all-inclusives in Mexico and they were wonderful. I would not go back.
Just recently returned from a week at the VCPdeO from 4-11 Mar 03. The staff at la recepcion were most friendly and got us settled into our rooms within 10 minutes of getting off the tourbus from the airport. The rooms were clean, however found the beds and pillows to be quite hard. Drinkable water is provided in a gallon bottle and is replenished as you need it. All the staff were most friendly form reception to the restaurants to room service and the recreation/entertainment staff. The food was average with many of the selections suited to the Mexican taste buds...not too hot though for the North American taste buds. I got thr feeling the Mexican people liked eating wieners. Bar service was good at both pool bars and in the theatre. The location is on Santiago Bay. Buses to el centro de Manzanillo (downtown) take 35 mins and cost 5 pesos, to Santiago 3.5 pesos and 6 minutes.Buses returning from town or Santiago...look for Miramar on the front window. The beaches in Manzanillo are uncrowded and incredibly clean with a very fine white sand...not like the coarse sand found further north in PVR and Mazatlan. You can walk almost the entiore length of Santiago Bay on the beaches...even help local fishermen pull in their nets (a unique experience). The recreation staff were absolutely fantastic and had activities planned for kids and adults throughout the entire day. At night they provided entertainment in the outside theatre in the form of differnt themes each night...Tropical Dances, Mexican Folklorico, audience participation and Broadway Shows. Much of the success of the recreation and entertainment team is due to a beautiful multi-talented Mexican beauty by the name of Alicia whose infectious smile and talent make you want to come back the next night for another show. Similarly, her effervescence around the pool with Mexican and Gringos alike make that side of the stay the most pleasant. Alicia, Hasta manana.
Our stay was comfortable, relaxing and memorable. Steep walking but activities close by, unlike at some other hotels. Staff was amiable and accommodating. Rujillio was very helpful with wife's birthday party at lovely upper pool shared with 18 new-found Minnesota friends. Weather was 100 degrees warmer than 12 degrees below zero at home. Only cloud in 8 days traced to city power plant! Hotel food was varied but all-inclusive price was so reasonable we enjoyed other ocean-front restaurants: La Toscana (Fish in a Shell!) and Marguerita's (Butterfly Fish!!) served by pleasant, Alexandra. Manzanillo's plaza was cluttered but colorful (Cuban cigars!), with Snoopy statue-a gift from sister city, St. Paul, MN. Bus and taxi affordable. Relied week-long on driver, Uziel (#255). We'd call on him again and stay at the same hotel.
It was great!
I thought it was great, Food, Service and Price!
I can't wait to go back!
This will be our second visit to Vista Club Playa de Oro. We loved it the first time. No, it's not high end, but why would anybody want high end when they travel to Mexico?? We own a 4 1/4 Star B&B on Vancouver Island, and were absolutely comfortable in our Mexican accomodations. The rooms are spacious and clean. The nightly entertainment was as good as any cruise ship show we've been on. The staff were very friendly and teenage friendly [we have our daughter on trips with us]. The food was ok, lots of variety and well set up, and certainly appropriate for any taste buds. No get sicky, which is a big thing in Mexico. Pure water, all conditions are met with Northeners digestive systems in mind. Yes, there are more elaborate and fancy hotels and resorts to stay in, but they don't make you feel as if you are in Mexico. This place does. Happy travelling.
