Why Victor chose Manzanillo

We have been visiting Manzanillo for over 20 years and just love it there! We enjoy the Mexican hospitality, the sun, the surf, and relaxing nature of being in a warm climate.

A wonderful winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great month at El Faro. The condo was very well equipped, and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable, from margaritas in the blender to burgers on the barbecue!

The views from both sides of this corner unit were breathtaking- glorious sunrises on one side and amazing sunsets and ocean views on the other side.

The people at El Faro were very friendly - the staff, the residents, and the visitors like us. Beatriz, the manager, was a gem. She answered all our questions, called taxis for us, booked a couple of tours for us, and went out of her way to help us enjoy our stay.

The grounds at El Faro were very well cared for and the pools were a great place to spend some time in the sun and visit with the others.

El Faro is situated very high up, so it is quite a walk to get to shopping, restaurants, etc. We made the trip down with no problems, but found we had to rely on taxis to return home with our groceries. Taxis are cheap, so it was worth it, if only for the view we enjoyed every day.

The condo owners were very helpful and great to deal with. They provided us with some very valuable information about the area, which helped us in choosing things we wanted to see and do.

I have been spending March at El Faro Condominio for the last 10 years, the past three in this two level unit. i have reserved March for years to come in this same unit as it is an ideal top floor unit situated at top-most part of the hill. From its three balconies, you get a 360 view, ocean, mountains, surrounding pueblos below. You can follow, or avoid, the sun all day long by chosing your outside nook. From the condo, there are several walking beaches in both directions ( 5 minutes down the hill) , many unique coffee houses, easy walk to many restauraunts, villages, markets, supermarkets. Going further out, the buses are within minutes, to all destinations, 70 pesos (50 cents).

You would be hardpressed to find a place where you would feel safer. The staff, cleaners, groundkeepers are friendly and always helpful. Both the condo and Manzanillo area as a whole are a feel-safe place for a 70ish woman, alone.

I have cooked many a wonderful meal in their well-equipped kitchen, gotten caught up in Netflix programs in their entertainment corner, and love waking up to a cool breeze travelling across the room and the sound of ocean waves below. With luck, I hope to have another 20ish March years there, that tells it all!

We have visited Manzanillo every winter for the past several years. The condo is an end unit, light and bright, well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Evening breezes always allow for pleasant evenings.

The views and weather are always terrific, the balconies are great for watching the sunrise in the morning and sunsets in the evenings. El Faro is a secure, friendly and well maintained complex in a great location.
