As a result there’s a happy mix of hotels to suit everyone from beach bums to visiting fishing folk. Most take advantage of the vast stretches of beach, so rooms with a sea view are easy to come by.

Fun-loving families will make a beeline for the giant fiberglass squid wrapping itself around a pirate ship in the swimming pool. There are waterslides and cannons thrown in for good measure. It sets the scene for the grin-inducing zip lines, mini soccer tournaments and kids’ camping night that make up the schedule of fun at Vista Playa de Oro. The all-inclusive resort, set just across the street from the beach, resembles a Mexican town with cobbled streets and clay-tiled roofs.

    Beach-lovers can step out of the hotel and right on to the sand of Manzanillo’s popular Playa Azul. Or, if you don’t want to leave the premises, the view from the infinity pool is pretty beach-perfect too. The rooms are pleasingly simple; think minimalist vibe with primary color pops from the soft furnishings. When you are this close to the natural beauty of the beach and are soothed to sleep by the waves, why would you want anything else? A great budget option.
