  • Rustic luxury: Simple beds/baths, but huge & beautiful outdoor living area + the best view ever!

    "I think rustic luxury is an apt description of this property. If you go in with the right expectations, this could be your best vacation ever. The photos don't lie about the infinity pool and view. It really was incredible! The pool water was a nice temperature. The beach chairs were comfortable and well maintained. Etc. I also loved the outdoor living area. It was huge with tons of seating and tasteful, traditional Mexican decor. The area was covered by tall palapas. Colorful tiles lined the stairs. Truly beautiful! The bedrooms and bathrooms were more simple and dated but adequate when it wasn't too hot. The beachside suite (down a long path with some stairs, quite far from the main house) didn't have A/C when we were there, and several of the overhead fans and one A/C unit in the home weren't functioning. Even in the bedrooms with functional A/C units and fans, the shutter windows and palapa roofs aren't perfectly sealed, so air did escape. As a result it was very hot and difficult to sleep on our hottest night--admittedly probably the hottest part of the year. However, on our less temperate night, ocean breezes plus the A/C and fans made it lovely. Some of the beds had mosquito nets, but I'd recommend bringing bug spray and maybe even citronella candles too. Expect mosquitos and other bugs, even inside. The housekeeper does a great job, but this is an older, traditional home. Steep cement stairs with no railing take you to a rocky beach--probably not somewhere you'd want to swim, at least not with kids. We went to look but didn't spend time there. We didn't visit the neighborhood's private beach but did drive a few minutes to the Las Hadas resort (day passes were about $35/person including drinks/beverages). We loved the idea of a private chef/house manager, and he did prepare a phenomenal ceviche! However, service wasn't quite what we'd hoped. For example, he scoffed when we asked for meals earlier than is customary in Mexico. Even after changing times at his request, meals arrived quite a bit later than agreed upon which was a little tricky since we were traveling with young children used to routines. Also, one evening we had a situation that we could have used help with but didn't know how to find or reach him. This certainly didn't ruin our trip -- it just wasn't the pampering we expected. All in all, we had a great stay at this beautiful, traditional Mexican home with one of the best views I've ever seen. I'd absolutely return!"

  • Beautiful, Relaxing and great food!

    "We all had a great time. Pablo and Rosa out did themselves. We had excellent meals, beautiful salads that were works of art, on demand yummy margaritas and spotless rooms. The swimming pool with its breath taking views and the huge palapa were our favorite spots. The well tended garden and friendly cat made me smile each morning. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, napping, reading, and a few ventures out shopping and site seeing. The guys went fishing, and brought back fish that Pablo and Rosa turned into a fabulous meal. We all want to return again and again to Casa del sol y la Luna"

  • Perfect vacation!

    "I can't say enough about how beautiful this place is, and how lovely our time spent there was. My family (husband, 3 children, grandparents) stayed here for a week and were very comfortable, with every wish being taken care of by the excellent staff. The views off the bedrooms and main living area are stunning, and there was always a gentle ocean breeze. Sunsets are amazing, enjoy the view from the beautiful infinity pool. The estate also has an amazing private beach, with it's own set of showers and pools, as well as a safe, inlet sand beach. We did a day trip to see a little town near an active volcano, and we also enjoyed the little restaurants around Manzanillo. But I agree with another reviewer, there is really no need to ever leave this beautiful home! We loved every minute and wished we could have stayed longer. Definitely hope to go back."

    "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!"
