Estuve hospedado en semana de Pascua, están muy bien ubicados dentro de manzanillo, a 5 minutos manejando de la playa y cerca de tiendas de conveniencia para comprar las cosas necesarias para tu estadía, no tuve la oportunidad de conocer a carlos pero la atención que me brindaron desde que llegue fue buena, una alberca muy tranquila para relajarse y los cuartos cómodos, todo conforme al precio pagado
This small cluster of bungalows, with comfy seating surrounding an outdoor pool, sits up a small hill one big block from the classic Manzanillo beaches that stretch for miles. As we had rented a car for the 4-hr drive from Puerto Vallarta, finding the Bungalows was ‘relatively easy’, and travelling by bus there and getting around on local buses could definitely work, for the flexible traveller!
Carlos and his staff were Very accommodating & reliable, our one bdrm Very spacious & livable (although there were fixable problems with the bathroom sink & a lack of basic eating utensils). Overall, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again or to recommend to others whose basic requirements are “affordable, clean, and convenient”.
Travel-Wise: Even as young 60-somethings, we found this to be a very safe sleepy small beach town, the perfect ‘down-time week’ before spending a much more Swinging 2nd week in P.Vallarta! However, a fun area to have great day trips (all within an hour), north to Melaque & Barra de Navidad on Hwy 200 and east to Colima and then to Comala and the active “Volcan de Colima,” (which burst while we approached it!). Additionally, there’s no end of public beaches accessible within Manzanillo where great food and drinks are available all day till 6pm. For evening dinners & drinks, the main choices are on the (non-beachfront) main boulevard that runs thru the town. Highly recommend “Margarita’s”, short walk from Bungalows Alcaraz for sunset drinks and/or early dinner! Café Bean just down the road for all-day breakfast & sandwiches, and Juanitas next door to Cafe Bean are two very close dynamite resto finds! (We can only hope they all stay ‘Open’!)
Overall ... Assuming no partying guests are present, Alcaraz bungalows are the perfect Peaceful escape with few neighbourhood sounds and a subtle evening hint of waves breaking on beaches below. Perfecto! Thanks Carlos & Staff!

Súper un lugar excelente para descansar y muy céntrico, quizá solo falta tv de cable para la noche y que el internet tenga un poco mas de potencia por lo demás super!!!!
This was our first Airbnb experience and our first trip to Mexico, so we weren't sure what to expect. It was a good space as far as size and layout. The apartment included a cute kitchen, stove, dishes, dining area with chairs, good size bedroom with closet, and bathroom with shower. The state and cleanliness of the apartment left much to be desired, however. The bed was very uncomfortable and I had to buy a foam pad from the store in order to sleep at all. There is no a/c, so leaving the windows open at night let mosquitoes in. The pool area was wonderful though. Very clean and a great chairs for lounging in the evening. The trip was great overall, the people were all extremely helpful and friendly. The price for the space can't be beat, but you get what you pay for.
Carlos is very welcoming, and his staff works really hard to keep the place safe and clean. Best place to stay in Manzanillo, close to the beach, what else?
We were greeted by the property manager who was extremely helpful, kind, and she cleaned our room one day & also did a load of laundry for us! She spoke very little english and us a small bit of spanish, which was fun but all worked out easily. The small apartment room was very basic but had most everything we needed. View from the property is fantastic and pool is lovely & very welcomed after a long day adventuring around Manzanillo. We ended up staying a day longer to enjoy the beaches, view from our place with the sunset & pool! Amazing deal for cheap accommodation & very generous space :)
We only stayed at Carlos bungalow for 2 nights as I had an allergy attack brought on by dust & pollen. Efron & Lorena were wonderful on trying to provide us with extra cleaning materials, but we had to depart to Barra de Navidad.
Carlos was very accommodating in refunding our money for the nights we could not stay.
For the money, the pool was very nice, the hotel is older & with that you get what you pay for. But the service was above & beyond most places.
Carlos was always available in trying to help us. I would recommend his hotel/bungalow to anyone on a budget.
