Last month, we asked you, our readers, about your favorite lesser-known Mexican hideaways: those resorts, inns, B&Bs, and hotels you love and look forward to revisiting. Readers answered the call with great suggestions such as a $58-per-night gem in Manzanillo, $300-a-week vacation homes in Progreso, and the ultimate splurge in Cancun.
Manzanillo, known as one of the prettiest beach destinations in all of Mexico, has a reputation as an upscale resort area, rich in golf courses, sport fishing, and dive sites. But reader Phyllis P. has found a hotel that offers all the elegant charm of the destination at a price that can’t be beat:
“Our favorite place to stay in Manzanillo is the Hotel La Posada. It’s a small pink inn with about 25 rooms, and is clean, quiet, reasonable, and fun. It is within walking distance of some restaurants and easy to catch the bus to get around Manzanillo. We love being right on the beach with the pool right there and watching the ships and boats going by. Some of the men like helping the fishermen pull in nets with the catch of the day. It’s a really restful place.”
Rates at the Hotel La Posada are $58 dollars per night for double occupancy during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. During winter, rates rise slightly to $78 per night for two people. The price includes breakfast, and discounts are available for guests staying three days or longer.
