About Bruce Hewins

My wife and our family are all from Alberta, Canada. Although we enjoy Alberta in the summer time there is nothing like a winter vacation in the warmer southern part of the world. Our family spends lot of time together and have taken numerous trips to our get away in the sun.

Bruce Hewins purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bruce Hewins chose Manzanillo

As one of the original builders of the property we were looking for a place we would all like to retire to, enjoy similar activities, while enjoying some of the most consistent weather in the low to mid 80's, with very little rain. We wanted a great location, and built in all the little extras we thought everyone owning or renting would want. All 5 of the builders have a condo on property and enjoy the company of all owners and renters.

What makes this condo unique

For us the consistent weather, along with a top golf course minutes away have made this property a very enjoyable place to be. The shopping, and local restaurants create a very comfortable yet unique opportunity to get a real taste of Mexico. We feel safe in the area, enjoy being with the locals, and have built up many long lasting relationships. Spending relaxing days on property give you endless activities if you want. From a stroll down the beach, local restaurant nearby, library, tennis or exercise facility, one can go at their own pace. If you desire quite time, leave your spacious windows wide open and relax on your private balcony.

Everything we hoped for…and more

  • 5 of 5

Looking forward to our 10 day family get a way we were pleasantly surprised and impressed from the moment we passed the security gate. Friendly staff, clean and well kept, the resort looked exactly as presented in the pictures. Our impressiveness continued as we walked along the pools to our spacious well furnished and stunning suite. All the comforts of home were provided….all appliances worked, satellite tv to keep track of the world at home, fully stocked kitchen and the best part was the floor to ceiling glass doors that opened the entire wall to overlook the pools, court yard and breaking waves on the beach.

The staff was always present and diligently working to keep the complex in pristine condition but Benny, swim up bar cook and host, treated our girls like family - he looked forward to seeing them for breakfast each day. Afternoon happy hour was a nice addition to the day as well.

I recommend renting a car as there are not a lot of amenities on the resort. The small store has necessities but low variety and limited stock. The car will allow you to travel to Colima (highly recommend shrimp empanada's at Mary's) so you can hit the restaurants there or take a water taxi across to Barra for additional restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. The car will also provide the opportunity to drive to the beaches at Melaque and La Manzanillo (crocodile park as well) or Cihuatlan and Manzanillo for groceries.

There are miles and miles of beautiful sandy beach steps away from your condo, but don't plan on swimming…the waves are large, strong and breaking. During our 10 days stay we did not see anyone person swim in the water…but all good with the three connected pools to choose from.

If flying out of Manzanillo I recommend eating prior to heading to the airport as there are no restaurant offerings on or near the airport grounds. Easiest thing is to ask Benny to make a few wraps for the road so you can take them with you on the plane.

Once the booking was accepted Bruce, owner of the condo, contacted us and provided valuable local knowledge and tips to help make our transition to vacation mode quick and easy…we were grateful for that bit of help as it ensured we could plan as much in advance and knew what to expect the moment the plane doors opened. Thank you Bruce.

If looking for a quiet, safe and picturesque break from reality then I recommend this place. You will not regret your decision.

Relaxing and enjoying a peaceful vacation is a very important activity here. Along with the sunshine, blue skies and warm waters of the pools and ocean, it is a very special experience to be in an area of Mexico where the people are so very friendly, helpful and warm. The pace of life here is so very laid back, and you are far from the hassle of crowds and line ups. Just enjoy the peace. Owners and renters will enjoy the social aspect of the complex with many shared activities throughout the day and nights. You can watch whales swim, jump and play. This beach is also a favorite for many sea turtles to lay their eggs. A walk down the beach will bring you to a sea turtle sanctuary, where you can learn more about them. Mingle with the locals in the markets in each of the villages. There are numerous restaurants, taco stands, authentic Mexican and American cuisine.
