Great Family Vacation Site
Paul Tomlinson: Villa Pellicanos, March 6 to 12, 2017. Villa Pellicanos provided our family (eight adults and six children all under the age of six years) a place for an intimate family get-together involving three generations. This was a highly anticipated event for us all. The villa and our stay was everything we hoped for. The physical setting—sleeping arrangements, main living areas, swimming pool, furnishings—provided a pleasant and comfortable place to be. The staff (Vicky and Guadalupe) were beyond our expectations. They provided us with three amazing, carefully prepared, well-balanced and interesting meals each day. We loved their 'naturalness', how they were themselves and how understanding they were with the children. It also helped that part of our family is Mexican. This facilitated meal planning and relaxed interactions between the staff and all members of our group. Thanks also to Nelly Arvizu–our friendly Internet-based contact. It was a pleasure doing business with you, although we'll have to stop meeting like this. The location is spectacular. The villa provides a panoramic view of two bays with lots of interesting boat traffic to maintain our interest. As we looked out from the villa, the sun rose on our left and set on our right. There was even a full moon on the last evening. The only drawback for us was the isolated nature of the location. It was a fair distance from the villa to the beach and to Manzanillo itself. The area is quite hilly and not good for strolling. However, it did lead to us feeling safe and secure. All things considered, we had a fabulous family get together. We recommend Villa Pellicanos for others seeking a safe, luxurious holiday setting. What is presented on the HomeAway site is what we experienced on the ground.
