We just got back on February 18th from Manzanillo and stayed at the Tesoro Resort. There were 3 couples, we stayed on the 18th floor, the other 2 couples on the 4th floor. We requested king size beds and ocean view rooms when we arrived. We had to wait about 1 hour for our rooms, it was no big deal, we just went and checked things out and had a drink. The views are awesome. This was our first all-inclusive resort, and we would definitely do that again. The resort is very simple but very clean. The food was good, and a big variety of things to choose from, you did not get bored with the food. The al carte restaurants were very good, the fish in both of them were awesome, along with the spanish coffee, you definitely have to have that, if not for the coffee, but the presentation. We made reservations for the al carte restaurants the day before, so that was no big issue with us. The elevators were a tad bit slow, but nothing to complain about, you are on vacation, in no big hurry. We did get up every morning at 7:00 am and save our chairs on the beach, which is no different than any other vacation we have been on. We had no problems with our items being taken on our chairs that were saved. We sat on the beach almost everyday, and had excellent service on the beach with our drinks. We brought our insulated cups and ordered 2 drinks at a time, and by the time we were finished she came around again. We did tip a $1.00 a time, so I am sure that helped our service. One day as we are sitting on the beach, we seen a mother whale and her baby swimming out in the bay area, that was a sight. They say this is the time the whales come closer to shore for warmer water. The beach area is a small bay, and the water is warm, and all sand. We did not find the beach area to be overly crowded, just a nice crowd. The sand does get very hot in the afternoon, so I would definitely bring a pair of water shoes or something, because you will not be able to walk up by the chairs on the beach area without something on your feet. The pool area is crowded, but late afternoon, we would go sit at the pool bar and have a few drinks. The pool water is very warm. The entertainment at the resort is great, with evening shows every night. The entertainers put in a lot of time, and it shows during their performance. When the lobby bar has live music, it is a good idea to get there early, it does seem to fill up fairly quickly for a spot to sit. We did take the bus downtown to a disco bar that the resort had for $5.00, and picked us up at 2:00 am, that was a lot of fun, great dancing. We also did the ATV Tour that we booked through the hotel, that would be something we would definitely do again, even thou 4 of us have never rode one before, they were very patient with us. The staff at the restaurants, bars and lobby were all very friendly and helpful with anything you needed. We did take a taxi down to the small shopping area, it was only $3.00 for the trip, the hotel lined up the taxi for us. The shopping is not close enough to walk, you do need to take a taxi. They do have a few small vendors at the end of the beach area with some nice items, but more of a variety if you go into town. The safes in the rooms are great, we wish our refrigerator was a little cooler, but we just filled our ice bucket and put our beverages in there. They fill the refrigerators everyday. Our experience was very positive and we would definitely go back to the Tesoro Resort to stay again.
