Our Opinion

The Vista Club Playa de Oro is a great resort for families looking for a resort where they know their kids will have a good time and a the same time wont break the bank. Themed "pirate" staff wears eye patch and costume around the resort. There are lots of fun activities and entertainment for everyone in the family. Kids will love the pirate pool area. The beach is across the street along with a local market. Room interiors are very much a casual Mexican style. The Vista Club offers a very casual atmosphere and is good for families with young children.

The Vista Club Playa de Oro Manzanillo is a 245-room resort is set into a lush hillside across the road from Santiago Bay. Across the street from the lovely Miramar beach with its miles of fine black sand conveying from the volcano's in Colima. Only 20 minutes away from the airport and 10 minutes away from the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Manzanillo. Wonderful value within a very complete all inclusive program, targeted towards fun and excitement for all. The daily activities program replenishes on the word "FUN", filled with daily excitement all day long. The children will never forget the Pingos Kids Club, with its famous mini-camping nights, Baby-Disco evenings and much more.

Location: Across from the beach, 25 minutes from downtown Manzanillo and the airport.

This Place is Magic!

We’ve stayed at Vista Playa de Oro many times and the always memorable experiences continue to draw us back, year after year. This is resort frequented by Mexican families wanting a great family getaway. We love this opportunity to meet and visit with folks and watch the kids delight in the many entertainments created especially for them. If you sign up expecting a quiet air-brushed adult retreat you may be disappointed. Given our exceedingly limited Spanish we were a little apprehensive the first year but Jorge said “this place is magic” just let it wash over you. And he was right! We immersed ourselves in the Play de Oro ecosystem and basked in the niceness of our fellow vacationers and the incomparable attentiveness of friendly staff seeing to our every need. Language was not a problem!The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable; internet connectivity was fast and reliable this year; the TVs are ancient but we rarely turn one on. I mean, we’re at Playa de Oro! I can watch TV and play on the internet at home! We’ve had some minor issues over the years but we talk to Jorge and they’re always resolved quickly and to our complete satisfaction.The food has always been good with many healthful and tasty choices but this year was exceptional with memorable dishes like a Mexican riff on Caprese salad; beef roasted with mango; meatballs a few different ways; fish delicately poached in lemon and butter; tasty soups like cream of elotes and clam chowder; a splendid array of pretty desserts; and Mexican coffee hot as hell, black as sin, and sweet as love. My favorite meal is always breakfast – first a small plate of fresh tropical fruits then a custom-made omelet with my choice of over a dozen fillings sided with frijoles or chilaquiles (or both!) and accompanied with many cups of excellent coffee. This year I missed the big raisins. Meals are a very friendly and social time with many smiles and greetings and pop up conversations! Throughout the day, the snack hut next to the pool churns out grilled to order burgers, hot dogs, and other fare. There’s plenty of condiments and accompaniments like chicken wings, tenders, beans (of course!), salads, ceviche, nachos, and tacos. Perfect and easy access for hungry swimmers! There’s an extensive list of tropical drinks for adults and a couple kinds of beer. Kids even have their own drink menu! I drink diet Pepsi, coffee, water, and the occasional gin and tonic. Laurie has fun experimenting with the many well-prepared frozen drinks available.There are many things to do! Aqua aerobics (my fave), dance lessons, volleyball, pool volleyball, water polo, zip-lining, tennis, mini golf, beach, horseback riding, city tours, boat rides, and on and on. The nightly after-dinner shows are what I look forward to the most! The animators are super friendly, exceptionally talented, and seemingly indefatigable as their day starts early and ends late. The shows are creatively choregraphed, entertaining, engaging, and very well-executed. Audience members, adults and kids, are frequently called upon to participate and with great effect. Most of the narrative is in Spanish but the themes are universal and easily understood even if you don’t speak it. Thank you, Alan, Jose, Carlos, Salvador (aka Chava!), Josua, Lulu, Michelle, Johanna, Julia, and Perla for sharing your many skills to dazzle and entertain us. They’re the best and we much enjoy following them throughout the year on the Playa de Oro Facebook page! We travel frequently and have been many places throughout the US, Mexico, and Canada. But this is the only place we continually return to. Mauricio and Jorge and Marisol welcome us each year as being part of the Vista Playa de Oro family and we genuinely feel at home here as we catch up with familiar staff members that we’ve come to know and love and make new friends with our fellow travelers. Thank you all for the many fun and indelibly fond memories you have created for us. Playa de Oro IS magic! Until next March! Amor y paz...

My friends and I were looking for inexpensive and a last minute trip when we found this place. I will say the rooms were good for the price we paid. Everything else was totally amazing. I had never stayed at an all inclusive and now I am sooooooooooo very happy we found this gem. Food was great and delicious The drinks were so very good and never ending. What really made this trip so amazing were the people/staff. Polite and very friendly. They have a show performed each night and it was incredible. The entertainers during the day are out mingling and playing games and other activities with everyone. Shout out to Julia and Jose, you are the best. I will always remember this trip. Also the resort is super family friendly. Well worth it

Great time with great people! ¡Un tiempo estupendo con la grande gente!

Great time for over 12 years at Vista Playa de Oro! This time was no exception. Every time we visit it feels like coming home. All the staff truly make us feel at home. Beautiful, truly Mexican resort set in a palm grove, right on the ocean! Food the best, lots of choices, nutritious and delicious. Activities for everyone. Easy and safe to travel alone anywhere off the resort by bus. Only 7 pesos to get anywhere in the entire Manzanillo area. If you are adventurous like us enjoy the bus service at the main terminal near downtown to visit other Mexican states.The evening dinner show for the whole family is outstanding. Truly professional!! If I begin to list names of staff, there is sure to be someone I will miss. So I will only mention Jorge Ramos "George" and his wife Marisol. If you need anything, from tour advice to information on local medical services, they will provide it. Thank you for everything Jorge, Marisol and staff!! You are like family to us. Miss you all!!
