Manzanillo Bay is a sparkling blue crescent of the Pacific at the north end of Troncones Beach just 30 minutes north of Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo. With prevailing winds and waves from the south, the Bay is very protected and perfect for wading, swimming and snorkeling. Yet the Inn is situated on a point which forms a spectacular left surf break right in our front yard!
The Pacific Coast of Mexico provides an enchanting experience for the cultured traveler - Yoga Retreats, Eco-Tourism and World-Class Surfing. Troncones beach offers miles of sparsely populated sand and surf. Truly a feast for the soul! If it's escape and renewal you crave, or great surfing on our Point Break, steps from your room, make the Inn at Manzanillo Bay your secret hideaway!
Ixtapa is an immaculate first-world tourist destination while the bustling fishing village of Zihuatanejo offers up the charming chaos of authentic Mexico. Our guests at the Inn find Troncones Beach to be the perfect balance between the popular tourist frenzy of Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo and the sublime relaxation that comes with being a world away from careers and pressures. The atmosphere is very relaxed - a perfect place to unwind. The sights, sounds and scents of the sea, joined with the sun and the surf will lethargize even the most ambitious adventure traveler.
The Inn is nestled against Manzanillo Bay with its eight beachfront bungalows clustered around the swimming pool in the midst of a manicured tropical garden.
Each guest bungalow is accented with local artisanship such as terra cotta and hand-painted talavera tiles fired in nearby kilns. The roofs are palm-thatched palapas woven by local craftsmen. Canopies drape each king-sized bed. Natural light and soft tropical breezes seep through the louvered windows and hand crafted plantation doors.
Fabulous weather mandates outdoor living. Each private bungalow includes a patio salon for cocktailing, entertaining, reading, resting or simply contemplating. With double doors wide open, the barrier between private space and universe erodes. Doze in your hammock, or lounge on the colorful patio furniture. Soak up the tropical surroundings of the Pacific Coast and the timeless energy of the nearby surf to renew your perspective. The new Terrace Suites offer HDTV and Whisper Quiet Air-conditioning for those who can't live without.
