Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

A dated property which could use some upgrading yet fairly well maintained & very clean. And each room has a balcony facing the bay &/or pool. The 'beach' is very unimpressive - small, possibly polluted from the marina next door, but there are some beauties only 15 minutes away in Santiago! Staff, at the front desk & in the restaurant,...

This is the 10th year we have been travelling to Manzanillo Mexico and staying at the Dolphin Cove. Our experience has always been positive and so I guess that is why we keep returning. If you want a 4 or 5 star all inclusive resort.. this is not the place for you. It is a boutique hotel, the rooms being...

Checked in with another couple for a planned 2 week stay. Stayed one night and left next day. DC was recommended by friends who stay here every winter. There are a number of buildings with rooms of different options. We had chosen a Junior Suite. My wife and I had room next to our friends. First impressions were bad. Room...

We love the ambience of Playsol Manzanillo/Dolphin Cove Inn. As mentioned by lots of other reviews there are a lot of stairs, we didn't find them a problem, but some might. The outside of the complex is stunning and the view of the pool and ocean amazing. We loved to sit on the balcony both day and evening enjoying our...

We have been going to Dolphin Cove for 9 years. The staff are all so kind & giving. Some rooms needed to be updated with improvement. They are working on improvement. Yes, there's lots of stairs, but, it's so easy to overlook them, when everything else is so beautiful. Try booking a lower floor less stairs. The restaurant staff are...

My wife and I spent a couple of weeks at this beautiful resort in February 2017 and although there are many good things to say, we will not be returning for reasons I will get into. First, the good. The rooms are somewhat dated but they are clean and the room had a spectacular view overlooking a bay.The staff is...

The hotel is really has a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. Going to the pool and restaurant is all steps. If you have a problem with knees, this is not the place to be. My husband booked 3 junior suites middle of the year last year. My daughter's room was a suite but my son's room and my room are...

In January 2009 I visited this facility in Manzanillo. Went back to it yesterday and obviously the facility has not been maintained to the standards that I would expect. Maintenance has not been done to keep the rooms clean and to not show wear. It still has fabulous views and a great pool, but I think it dropped from a...

We were at first surprised that room was not exactly gorgeous, but we soon got over that. Yes, the drawers and cupboard doors were not perfect, but everything else was wonderful. Great service, great restaurant with great prices. Be sure to have guacamole. It's huge! The grounds were beautiful, as well as the views from every room. The pool was...

Beautiful grounds,great views, very nice staff but way too many stairs! Bus stop right in front of hotel lobby which was convenient. Room was large, bright and clean. Only 3 tv channels in English with no news channels 😟
