If you wish, plan to spend a day or two in Guadalajara and/or Mexico City on the way or returning - it'll break up the trip and make it more interesting.

Many travel agents are not familiar with the nuances of getting to Manzanillo -- including feeder airlines. Therefore, feel free to discuss with us, as we may be able to provide helpful hints.

Our Great Time at the Palace

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Palace by the Sea was the definition of a luxurious vacation. The attention to detail is impeccable.
Escorted from the airport by limo, we were greeted by a fabulous staff who carried our luggage into a gorgeous, spacious, and well-appointed room.

The villa's living room is an enormous open atrium overlooking the ocean. All views are grand - visions from a beautiful dream. Favorite areas were the large pool, jacuzzi, outdoor lounging and dining, the exercise room and the media room. Complete with indoor and outdoor music systems we relaxed to smooth jazz, danced when wanted. At sunset we watched the incredible views serenaded by the waves and the breeze.

Chef Pilar serves meals fit for a king. The fresh Margaritas, courtesy of Jose, are to die for. Twice we arranged for a delightful massage from the local massage therapist, Cecilia, who came to the villa. Everything is provided in the most thorough, loving, and exquisite way. You never have to lift a finger. The entire staff is kind, friendly and always accessible. They made our stay totally enjoyable and relaxing. Our special occasion was gloriously celebrated. We simply let them know and watched the magic happen. At the end of our stay, we wanted to hug every staff member.

Our time at Palace by the Sea was a treasure and we look to return soon. We highly recommend The Palace to anyone who demands the best.

Pampering at beautiful, luxurious oceanside villa

  • 5 of 5
This magnificent ocean-side villa is luxurious with a friendly staff who attends to every need. The open architecture is stunning with exquisite brick domes and marble floors. Three well balanced and scrumptious meals a day are provided at minimum cost and are "works of art". An on site pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained. It is in a beautiful, safe, gated community (LaPunta) with private tennis courts and a beautiful, clean private beach. The views of the ocean from every window are stunning and the sound of the surf lulls one to sleep every night. The bedrooms are beautiful and large and almost an apartment in their own right. A media room offers a place to watch TV, movies and listen to music. There is access to an electric golf-cart and an eight passenger SUV. Golfing, surfing, deep-sea fishing, hiking, horseback riding, zip-lines, paddle boards, snorkeling and scuba diving are just a few of the activities available for rental or at close venues. A Saturday open market is interesting and fun but there is also a Walmart available for shopping. The staff are very capable, friendly, conscientious and speak quite good English. We found the private beach to be a true treasure and we enjoyed many activities there even at night because of its lights. It was a wonderful, relaxing, sun and fun filled vacation for all of us and we are looking forward to the time when we can go again! We all would highly recommend it to relatives and friends.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I'm happy to say that we all had a wonderful time, and the Palace By The Sea is truly a "palace". Not only is the home absolutely beautiful in every way, the staff was a joy to work with and be around. Fabulous food and cooking, and Jose made all of our plans so easy to execute. He was a great guide and chaueffer.....The beach is a very short distance away, very beautiful and very few people there. The weather was perfect; it's an easy drive from the airport, and we all felt very safe at La Punta (the secure area of homes where the Palace is located). The bathrooms are very large and the bedrooms very roomy - especially the 2 Master bedrooms. VERY clean and well kept - the staff every day would be there to take care of any needs you might have - you simply had no worries! Every day you pick from a generous menu list, and the cook does a marvelous job of preparing your meals. The "worst" meal that we had all week (and it was still very good) was when we went out to a restaurant for dinner one night - we were spoiled by the great food at the Palace. There are many local golfing choices and other activities to enjoy. We went deep sea fishing, shopping and took the kids for a "zip" ride in the mountains. I would definitely recommend the Palace to anyone who is looking for a great place to relax with family and friends.

A Trip To Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to La Punta in Manzanillo was amazing! Weather was in mid-eighties w/ low humidity. Not a lot of tourists based on time of year. Staff was great, spoke English, very friendly. Chef (Pilar) made fantastic meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ate lunch at a restaurant once and wondered why since the food at the Palace was so much better. One meal I do recommend having out is the grilled fish/shrimp at the restaurants on the beach near the turtle sanctuary. Turtle sanctuary was worth a visit. Kids got to send 1 day old baby sea turtles into the ocean. Another fun activity was zip lining - about a 40 min. car ride to get there, but worth the drive. Had access to Suburban (w/ driver if needed) and paid an additional $500 for 2nd Suburban (w/ driver for a week) since we had 12 people (5 adults, 7 children, ages 7-11). Very helpful to have a guide to set up activities, interpret, etc. Palace is in a great location, near water, beautiful views, safe, and well maintained. Also nice to have phone/internet access. Beach club at La Punta is a wonderful amenity - lush and picturesque, plenty of tables/chairs, pool, very private. We rented 2 jet skis and had them delivered to the beach club so we could take turns riding them, and we spent a lot of time snorkeling. Tennis courts at La Punta are another great amenity - our families played tennis every evening. The golf cart that comes w/ the house is the perfect way to get around La Punta and explore a bit - kids loved riding in it. Bedrooms were all a good size and beds were comfortable. Customer service at the palace was excellent, and we felt very well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend. Perfect for large groups.

We all had a wonderful time. The staff were so warm and accommodating. The food and menu choices were delightful. And the staff coordinated our excursions for sunset cruises, zip lining, etc. were smoothly handled. Would love to stay again!

We would go again in a heartbeat! The Palace is beautiful, the staff is wonderful, the owner was very pleasant to work
with. We spent a week being pampered by the staff, enjoying the pool and hot tub, loving the scenery. Every meal was
delicious---we went elsewhere for one lunch and one dinner, but the food prepared at The Palace was far superior! We enjoyed the private beach and the tennis courts. There were 10 of us---7 adults and 3 children---and we were all
very happy with our week. We highly recommend this experience!!
