MY TRIP TO THE MEXICAN RIVIERA - MANZANILLO
I was at this property two weeks ago celebrating my 50th birthday. I must say, the pictures on the internet do not do justice. The property is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff is wonderful. It was hard for me to believe that the house was way better than the pictures. The views are unbelievable. The staff provided everything we needed when ever we needed it. The owner Kim is so nice, anytime I would email her with a questions, she would get back to me right away. Everything she told me about the place was exactly on. We walked down to the beach, a 5-8 minute walk every morning and exercised. The place is so beautiful that we didn't want to go on tours or anything, we just wanted to lay around relax at the pool, beach and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. If you are a beach lover like me and my husband, you will be in "Heaven." I can't say enough about it, I can't wait to go back. There were 5 couples and every room has it's own view of the ocean, nice "big" bathrooms with double sinks. The house has everything you would need, golf clubs, pool toys, boogie board for the beach which I used. It's just a really really nice property, oh and very clean, the pool guy came by every day to clean the pool. Kim has put a lot of time and love into this house and it shows. I'm going back probably in two years and taking my kids who will be 16 and 18 at that time, and I know they will love it. I only have good things to say because it was fantastic and to use one of Kim's terms, "The nights are magical." We did go into town for osters and the local mart they have on Thursdays for shopping, but really the staff can provide everything you need. They were very accommodating. I absolutely loved my 50th Birthday Celebration. Oh and did I mention it is 'SAFE" some nights we went to bed and left our phones, lap tops and I even left my fanny pack with all my money down at the pool one night. It is "SAFE." People are always saying you're going to Mexico? Well I can't wait to go back, it was one of the best vacations I have ever had and I travel a lot. I usually use my timeshare and have to cook on vacation sometime. But not here Esther and Shon totally spoiled my group, it was wonderful. Thank you Kim for sharing your home, I will be back:) Darlene from Tustin, California.

Owner's Response: I am so delighted Darlene, that you and your guests enjoyed such a wonderful time at Villa Casablanca. I can't think of a more magical place to celebrate a milestone Birthday !
It was wonderful to hear your validation that the website photos don't do the Villa justice. It truly is a spectacular property with amazing vistas. The Villa was entirely renovated with vision and love and all of the furniture was built by Mexican craftsmen. We tried to create a luxurious yet inviting and comfortable " Old World " feel by marrying our love of Europe with our love of Mexico.
I always say that our staff are our best asset and your comments as well as others' confirm this . I truly believe that we have the best staff in La Punta ! They do absolutely everything possible to ensure our guests needs are met and that they enjoy a wonderful and memorable vacation. Their warmth is felt the minute they greet you to Villa Casablanca.
It is heartening to hear that our guests enjoy such a wonderful time at our home and fall in love with Manzanillo as we have ... and that they can't wait to return !
