About Craig Gilbertson
Our family lives on a lake in the northwoods of Minnesota and love the Troncones area and people..
Craig Gilbertson purchased this Resort in 2007
Why Craig Gilbertson chose Troncones
After vacationing in Troncones we were so taken by the location, the people, and the ocean we bought a lot. Over the following two years we built our small resort.

Tropical Paradise .... I was applauded by my group!
I booked this property for our group, and when I got there 1 hour after they did... I was pleased to get a standing ovation!
Kena is the cleaning lady, and she is very accommodating for whatever you need. The pool guy even took one of us lobster fishing one day!
Use Gustavo for your car needs or airport shuttles, he is very prompt on returning your emails.
The rooms/beds are very comfortable, and we all liked that they are private to not have to hear nightly activities if you don't want to hear them.
The stereo was nice in the kitchen room that had speakers out by the pool. If we go again, we would remember to bring more CD's, or an adapter to play our own music.
It is also great that there is a supply of cleanser for the fruit and vegetables to be washed in. Not sure if Craig supplied it, or if it was left over from last guests?
Sergio cooked us a fabulous meal! We purchased shrimp and Mahi from the locals, and he dug through our fridge and put together e a feast! We paid him $80+tip and paid for our food.
We also had fresh abalone, and muscles that the locals dug off the rocks in the surf right in front of us some days. Can't get any fresher!
Vendors a few, and far between...but they will find what you want and bring it the next day!
I would recommend getting peso's before you go. No banks there, and locals exchange rate is whatever they want it to be at times.....much easier having pesos for all!
Thank you Craig, for sharing your place on VRBO...it's people like you that made our friends quit their locked in time-share!! They LOVE staying in new places and exploring different cities in Mexico other than Mazatlan every year after year! We got them to Ixtapa once, and were hooked on our adventures!
Your place is wonderful!
The absolute PERFECT getaway location!
I can't rave enough about this property and Troncones in general. My wife and I stayed at Merece Tus Suenos for one week of a two week stay. The property was meticulously maintained and in the perfect location. It was just what the doctor ordered. We would have stayed for the second week as well but it was unfortunately already booked. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We became addicted to the regular bread deliveries as well as the fruit/vegetable truck that was in the area several times.
The area is very safe and not once did we feel unsafe or questionable!
We found the perfect little section of beach a short walk to the north from the property and quite literally only had three people cross our path in the 4 hours we were enjoying the ocean.
We just returned home and are already planning our trip for next year. This time we will bring the kids as well... or maybe not.
A little piece of paradise!
Mereces Tus Suenos is truly paradise. You arrive to the sound of the ocean, large private rooms, and beautiful sunshine. The shared kitchen is great fun and a nice way to meet other guests. The owners are incredibly accommodating and flexible. Although this resort isn't located in a very populated area, you can't beat the warm fresh bread in the morning or fresh fruit and vegetables at your door. The food can't get any fresher or better! There's also so much to do in the area, from horseback rides to hiking to a cave, you and your family won't be bored! An absolutely perfect getaway resort tailored to all sorts of travelers. Once you visit Mereces Tus Suenos, you'll be hooked!
This Vacation spot was exactly what we needed!!!!!
I can't say nothing negative about our vacation to Merce Tu Suenos in Troncones, MX. This private resort was exactly what we needed. We have been to all inclusives before where there are hundreds of people, timelines on eating, so many activities. It was nice to have no timelines. Due to size maybe a maximum of 15 people would be there if the place was completely filled. Our rooms were fabulous with king size beds, beautiful bathrooms. Our 2 grown daughters & boyfriend/finance joined us. The setting allowed us much one on one time together with no distraction coming from other guests or activites. We controlled our own timelines-loved that! We spent hours by the pool, walking the beach & climbing the rocks, snorkeling. We found a tidal pool 15 mins down the beach that offered about 10 species of fish, sea urchins and other critters from the sea, Even a baby sting ray! The outdoor kitchen was enjoyable to cook in & offered everything you needed to make meals. Do stop in Zihuatanejo & get groceries. There are two little grocery stores in town but probably not enough of what you might want. The fruit/vegetable truck came by daily along with a beer truck that stopped several times during the week even thou there is a well stocked liquor store in Troncones. No Schnapps thou! Plenty of tequila!!! I recommend getting a mango off the fruit truck and making mango margarittas! At 7:30am every AM the bread lady would come with her warm fresh homemade breads. A bun was 4 peso's and there were loaves sometimes and delicious sweet bread. We immersed ourselves into the little town of Mahajua a 5 min walk down the road. Very poor, but a wonder cultural experience. We attended a fund raiser at the school. They do not speak english so plan to use a lot of sign language. We did not eat at the restuarants there...a little too rustic for us but I hear it is very good. The other direction from our complex there are 3 or so resort complex's that have very good restuarants and bars if you want a cooking break. The complex is managed by two of the sweetest people Jose and Myra. DO HAVE THEM COOK FOR YOU! Fresh lobster from out front, shrimp, you name it. Just make arrangments when you get there. They will answer any ?'s. Highly recommend if you want a quite, personal, romantic, low key vacation together without all the commotion of people. Go into Xtapa if you desire more activites and night life. Taxi's are avail. Beautiful sunsets, scenery and more!!!!
This place is a wonderful, quiet get-a-way; modern yet tastefully simple. A great place to experience Mexico on a different level. Rooms and other areas were clean and welcoming When we wandered through the area we felt like we were on the set of an old John Ford directed western or the Magnificent Seven with Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. We walked down dusty dirt roads through quiet villages down to the ocean. Along the way we saw chickens, dogs, children at school and local fishermen with their catches. Real Mexico with all it's charms.
Private, well appointed, safe, relaxing and well-designed property
We rented 4 of the 5 rooms for a week in January. They place is fantastic. It's well thought out. It's well designed. It's well maintained. It's cared for and loved. It's a special place among many choices. I think one of the key factors are the placement of the pool with the shade of the palm trees. Afternoons get pretty hot down in Troncones, and the palms provide enough shade to still be outside and relax by the pool. Nearby town of Majahua is a short walk away where you can find friendly locals, grocery stores, more beaches and fresh fish. Woman who makes bread fresh daily delivers. Vegetable/fruit truck comes by every two days. Sandy beach is a 10 minute walk to excellent swimming and boogie boarding. The beach right in front of the property is sandy to the water, then it's rocky. TONS of seashells and goodies for the kids to collect. Central kitchen is well appointed with room to cook and serve large groups--all outdoors--but covered, very nice. I would recommend this property without any hesitation.
