“We were blown away!”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2014

Everything about this place is five-star: the location, the facilities, and the staff. Each morning we were greeted with dazzling array of fresh fruit with our breakfast, and every evening a fabulous, romantic sunset dinner. And in lovely lazy hours in between, we were treated to some of the most uncanny and intuitive service we've ever experienced: at one point, while swimming in the pool, I wondered silently to myself if it was too early for a beer and when looked up, there was a bucket of baby Coronas on ice giving me the answer. I would recommend this to anyone ready to enjoy the royal treatment in a real palace.

“A review of our stay at Palace By The Sea by Bradley and Rebecca”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2014

During the week of Dec. 16-21, 2013, we had the privilege of staying at the luxurious resort villa, Palace By The Sea, in Manzanillo Bay, Colima, Mexico. The accommodations were surely the most luxurious that we've ever experienced. From the gorgeous location, to the beautiful and impressive villa, to the warm and professional staff, to the sumptuous and delicious meals, to the breathtakingly upscale community with all of its many recreational and leisure activities, we reveled in the experience for five days. We enjoyed Swedish massages, horseback riding, snorkeling, lazing about by and in the swimming pool and jacuzzi, touring the lovely La Punta community in the golf cart which was at our disposal as Palace guests, walking the community's private beach. It was a supremely wonderful environment in which to decompress from the stresses of life. Did we mention the food? Every multi-course meal was thoroughly delightful, thoughtfully prepared and presented, and absolutely delicious. Our accomplished chef allowed us to select the menu items which most appealed to us for every meal. We dined on the terrace overlooking the Pacific, taking in the sun and the breeze, and felt like we were on top of the world! Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary that week, the special evening's dinner was taken with a mariachi band entertaining us throughout the meal, and the chef baked us a cake expressly for the occasion. The suites and the common areas were kept clean and fresh at all times and our laundry was wash folded and return to us promptly by our wonderful housekeeper. The community of La Punta is secure, safe and inviting, and our eminently capable houseman made sure that all arrangements were made for recreational activities and local travel. If we wanted anything, all we had to do was ask. If ever you have the opportunity to enjoy a stay at Howie and Frankie alper's Palace By The Sea, please do so. You'll have the vacation experience of a lifetime!

“Awesome Vacation Spot!!!”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

Ourvacation at the Palace was an incredible experience. The Palace is a beautiful first class home designed to take advantage of the favorable climate, with large open air lounging and dining areas. From there, a few steps down to the patio area that features a swimming pool and hot tub, both of which we made a great deal of use. Around the pool there is ample amount of seating, including lounge chairs for sun bathing and umbrella covered tables. The five luxurious bedrooms accomodated us all very comfortably, each one with distintive features and themes of their own. The staff of Jose, Pilar, Paty, Blanca and others saw to our every need, often anticipating our needs even before we did.Jose supplied us with all the food we requested with his many trips to town and acted as our chaffeur when needed. Pilar's cooking was amazing,everything we could want, choosing from a menu that included american and Mexican style cuisine. The meals were always beautifully presented. Paty and Blanca were always busy, from keeping the bedrooms and house spotless, doing laundry, to helping with all of the other details that needed attention. Jean Pierre visited each day to check on us to see if we had any needs or concerns. All were very friendly and inviting and we all appreciated their attention to our comfort. A short walk or golf cart ride took us to the LaPunta beach area where we enjoyed a day at the beach. Jose, Pilar and Paty brought our lunch right to us at the beach pavillion. The area is perfectly safe and welcoming, contrary to what you hear on the news in america. We never felt threatened or uncomfortable in any way. I want to extend my thanks to Howie and Frankie and all of the staff on behalf of my wife Terri and the rest of my family, for offering their incredible villa for our wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend a vacation at the "Palace by the Sea" to anyone looking for a luxurious , relaxing vacation at a five star location. John Peterson

“Luxurious pampering at a beautiful oceanside villa!”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2013

This magnificent ocean-side villa is luxurious with a friendly staff who attends to every need. The open architecture is stunning with exquisite brick domes and marble floors. Three well balanced and scrumptious meals a day are provided at minimum cost and are "works of art". An on site pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained. It is in a beautiful, safe, gated community (LaPunta) with private tennis courts and a beautiful, clean private beach. The views of the ocean from every window are stunning and the sound of the surf lulls one to sleep every night. The bedrooms are beautiful and large and almost an apartment in their own right. A media room offers a place to watch TV, movies and listen to music. There is access to an electric golf-cart and an eight passenger SUV. Golfing, surfing, deep-sea fishing, hiking, horseback riding, zip-lines, paddle boards, snorkeling and scuba diving are just a few of the activities available for rental or at close venues. A Saturday open market is interesting and fun but there is also a Walmart available for shopping. The staff are very capable, friendly, conscientious and speak quite good English. We found the private beach to be a true treasure and we enjoyed many activities there even at night because of its lights. It was a wonderful, relaxing, sun and fun filled vacation for all of us and we are looking forward to the time when we can go again! We all would highly recommend it to relatives and friends.

“A visit to paradise”

Reviewed 22 May 2013

We want to express our sincere thanks to Howie and Frankie alper for allowing us a week of pure pleasure. We were spoiled, pampered and so well fed that our belts had to be let out a notch after a week of Pilar's wonderful, outstanding cooking. Each meal was perfect and the table setting was a compliment to the foods served. Jose was the most wonderful companion and so willing to be our guide, and chauffeur, from shopping, to a day spent viewing the sea turtle sanctuary and a delightful boat ride. He even taught us a bit of Spanish! Jose mixes a mighty Margarita that was so appreciated, and he was always there for our every need with a happy smile. Paty was an excellent house keeper always on top of everything and everything done to perfection. The kindness she showed, with the added touches of a bottle of water by our bedside nightly, laundry done and ready for our next day's needs was appreciated. Omar's work was a pleasure to behold. He kept everything clean and the pool sparkling and the hot tub a delight. The coconuts he prepared for us was a surprise and an appreciated extra treat. As promised there was someone waiting to whisks us from the airport to the most magnificent ocean front place that our party had even imagined in our wildest dreams. The information that was in the book listed so many wonderful places to visit and we just enjoyed all of the information at our finger tips. To speak of the pool and hot tub is an easy subject as it was a pure delight to relax in the warm clean water. The lazy, relaxing days were always topped off with a visit to the bedroom that was spacious and so easy to fall into a relaxing sleep with the sounds of the ocean in the open windows. Thank you again Howie and Frankie for a time of our life. The very best to you and all of the staff and Sonja for making everything easy, answering each and every question and her suggestions that were so helpful.

“Manzanillo Girls Trip”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

The Palace was the perfect place for a relaxing girls vacation. All seven of us had such an amazing time! The staff was wonderful and the food outstanding. We went out to dinner one time and truly felt like the food at the Palace was way better than the restaurant! Jose makes a mean margarita and was at our service if we ever needed anything. The little markets are a must! We picked up some great pewter, mexican linens and other fun things. We look forward to making this an annual vacation and are already looking forward to next year. Below are some of the other girl's comments. "One of the most beautiful and relaxing places I have ever been in my life." - Emily "It is a little slice of heaven-the house and views are stunning; the food was gourmet; and the service was impeccable! It was truly the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation I have taken in a long time!" - Julianne "Palace by the Sea was fantastic! I relaxed more than I have in years! From the 180 views of the Pacific, to the massage room on-site, to the amazing meals, it is a one of a kind experience! Highly recommend this home!!"- - Laurie
