We stayed from Dec 21-28. The staff was incredibly friendly, especially Raul, the bellman. The check in process was a bit slow. Our room was not ready until almost 4pm that day...we arrived at 8am. The room was spacious, the bathroom huge and we had a nice terrace that overlooked the pools and Italian restaurant. Our AC was a bit...

We stayed at the Barcelo Karmina Palace from Jan. 4 - 11, 2012. A family vacation with our two girls and their husbands and their two babies (both under two years old). We stayed here 10 years ago before it was a Barcelo. Not too much has changed. It is still a Palace. Such a great layout and easy to...

We have travelled all over Mexico and usually stay at a Barcelo, Dreams or other 5 star resort. This place by far had the most hospitable staff we have ever encountered. Everyone so pleasant.

We stayed at Karmina Palace Dec 6-13. Had never been to Manzanillo before and wanted to give it a try. Though we found there wasn't much to do off of the resort, we were there with the intention of lounging by the pool. The hotel was only at about 30% capacity so there were no issues with getting a chair...

The Karmina Palace is a great hotel, impeccable grounds, the friendliest staff, such a variety at the buffets and drinks always available. Evening entertainment is very good for Mexico, yes, the beds are hard but you know that before you go, however, the rooms require a little maintenance, eg, we had to have the screen doors oiled [they wouldn't move],...
