About Kim Holmsen

Our family fell in love with Manzanillo in the 70s and have been coming back every since! We love the fact Manzanillo is still a small town and not a huge tourist destination.

Kim Holmsen purchased this condo in 1970

Why Kim Holmsen chose Manzanillo

Our property is built on a hillside which offers amazing and unobstructed views of the bay. It is simply gorgeous to sit on your private balcony in the evenings and watch the ring of light around the bay. We just love it here!

What makes this condo unique

Beachfront location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Dolphin Cove for a lovely week. It was the perfect place to unwind and warm up after the Christmas chaos in the cold north! We loved just hanging out on our patio and talking long walks around the beautiful property. We had a great stay!

A great Valentine's Day trip!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a week over Valentine's Day. We really liked the property and amenities. They had a nice Valentine's Day dinner which was fun. Our condo was clean and simple and had everything we needed. We took a tour to Colima and Comala which was wonderful. We can't wait to come back and explore more of Manzanillo.

Very relaxing and lovely

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent at week at in a one bedroom condo. We had a really big outdoor balcony and we watched the sunrise every morning with our coffee. The unit had a nice big kitchen and we went to the local grocery store and stocked up with food. We also at several times at the restaurant by the pool which was very good and inexpensive. The pool was really nice and we enjoyed walking along the beach and over to Las Hadas. It was a very relaxing trip. Thank you.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for something special and we found it at the Dolphin Cove Inn. We spent three amazing weeks there. The owners and staff are warm and wonderful people who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We can not wait to go back, hopefully for longer next time.

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to sneak away for a romantic getaway and avoid the crowds. Dolphin Cove was the perfect spot. This little condo-hotel is a perfect place to escape. It is a really nice property with everything you need at a very cheap price. The blackberry margartias are amazing!

A beautiful spot with gorgeous views -- enjoy a relaxing experience in Manzanillo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a special experience in Manzanillo at this property. The setting and views are gorgeous -- the bougainvilleas were absolutely breathtaking! We enjoyed the restaurant and the food was excellent. The rooms were spacious and all had a lovely view of the ocean. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the service was excellent. All in all, a wonderful week in paradise!
