Call to reserve direct for a better price! Our hotel offers six clean, distinct rooms on the beach with a nice view at a nice price. These photos display Cabin 1 and our palapas. Not only can you almost reach out and touch the southern corner of Tenacatita Bay, but you only need to walk only 10 meters to cross the little bridge to reach La Manzanilla’s charming plaza. Please review all details listed. Ask any questions before making reservations because we want everyone to enjoy a 5-star stay!

The space
The rooms are on the beach next to the Crocodile Bar and Cafe Du Calcetin, so you only need to go a few steps to the best coffee in town. Crocodile Bar will also offer breakfast, lunch and dinner on a daily basis in the high season. For those of you familiar with La Manzanilla, you know it remains tranquil, so please don’t fret about sleeping next door to a bar. The large palapa next to the room will shut down by 10 p.m. at the latest and even earlier on some nights. The little palapa closer to the bay will be tranquil by 11 p.m. at the latest.

Please understand this listing is a cabin-style rustic room on the first floor with a concrete floor and a wooden ceiling. Enjoy the views of the bay looking through the restaurant palapas. For extra privacy, the room offers both curtains and shutters. If you desire a more cosmopolitan setting, please refrain from reserving this cabin.

Room 1 includes: Ocean views, king-size bed, matrimonial futon sofa bed, ceiling fan, portable air conditioner for evening use only, extra air mattresses available, drinking water, two stools, dresser for clothes.

Kitchenette includes: small refrigerator, four-burner stove, simple kitchen supplies, kitchen sink, small counter space for maximum of two people.
Kitchenette does not include: Microwave, coffee maker, blender nor any other kind of electric supplies.

Room 1 does not include: Television, portable fans, iron, hair dryer, large table.

Please understand this room is a cabin on the first floor. If someone walks in normal fashion the the cabin above Room 2, it is possible to hear the steps. Also, though there is no smoking allowed in the room, it might be possible on occasion that the cigarette smoke from the palapa area could enter the room.

We hope you understand we are trying to be as transparent as possible about the good and bad about all of our cabanas. If you look at the comments from Mateo's previous guests in all of the rooms, you will see almost everyone has loved the establishment because they came in with realistic expectations. If you wish to get an experience you would find at a Four Seasons, we hope you can make a reservation at the Four Seasons.

Where you’ll be

La Manzanilla, Jalisco, Mexico

The artstic seaside community of La Manzanilla continues to charm tourists from all over the world, especially from Canada, Mexico and the United States. We're big enough to have several doctors, schools, small stores and plenty of wonderful restaurants, but quaint enough that we still don't have chain restaurants. And of course you must visit the crocodile sanctuary!
