About the property

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, entertainment room, sleeps 6

Our condominium is located on the top three levels of Elegance Blue, a six-story oceanfront condominium complex. The guard at the gate will direct you to what, at first glance, appears to be a huge luxury hotel. From the impressive lobby you will catch a glimpse of a magnificent heated swimming pool, the largest in Manzanillo. An elevator will take you to our condo. The first floor of the condo has a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, and a living room. There is a half bath adjacent to the kitchen. Off the living room is a terrace that offers a great view of the ocean. The master bedroom and the second bedroom are located on the second floor. Both bedrooms have fully furnished private bathrooms. The top floor of the condo has been designed to serve as a social activities or family room. The family room has a private bath with a whirlpool tub and a terrace with an ocean view.

The Mexican Riviera has many great vacation spots, but more and more vacationers are discovering that Manzanillo has a special allure. The beauty and charm of Manzanillo is more than a match for any of the various resort areas along the Pacific coast. It offers all the activities, entertainment, and accommodations normally associated with oceanfront vacation sites. The unique attraction of Manzanillo is the pleasant, dignified manner in which it has absorbed tourism. Vistors can relax in a beach chair or stroll along the beaches of Manzanillo undisturbed. Unlike many tourist areas, Manzanillo's beaches, shops, restaurants, and night spots are free of annoying solicitors pushing cheap souvenirs, side trips, and time share offers. Manzanillans are cheerful, friendly, and helpful. They are cordial but never pushy in their interaction with visitors to their little piece of paradise.

About Jackie Burns

We live in Mexico half the year and Canada the other half.

Jackie Burns purchased this condo in 2003

Why Jackie Burns chose Playa Azul

We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it. At first we thought it was a hotel until we saw a for sale sign posted and inquired. We bought our villa immediately and have never once regretted it.

What makes this condo unique

The benefits are that we get the nice cool ocean breeze all the time. We can view the ocean, mountains and pool from the decks on all three levels of the condo. The entry was enough to sell us on the property because of it's drive through luggage drop off, friendly staff and beauty. Then we saw the pool. This is the largest pool we had ever seen, the water was clean and clear and there is a stairway leading to the top of the restaurant/swim up bar where we could use the jacuzzi or simply lie in the poured lounges in the water and watch the ocean waves crash in and the boats awaiting entry into the port in the distance. Our condo is ideally located as we are situated where we only get direct sunlight onto the decks late afternoon. This tends to keep the condo cooler. Our location in the building is also close to an upscale mall and it tends to be far quieter than the other wing which is near a casino/bar.

Guests of all countries love the place and come back to rent year after year. This condo could not have a better location as it is within walking distance to so many amenities and restaurants. In other words it is a great place.

The condo is located on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors of Elegant Blue/Gran Pacifico. The building itself looks like a huge hotel. It has elevators and is wheelchair accessible but the bedrooms in the condo are on the second and third floors of the condo and are only accessible by staircase. Under normal circumstances, the condo would not be acceptable to persons with limited mobility. The pool is heated year round. We supply cleaning products, toilet tissue etc for short term guests (1 week or less) but longer term must provide their own.

Nice place with a great view

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks learning about the particulars of renting a suite.

1) Cab fare from the airport was $500 pesos but the return trip is $400 pesos.

2) The weather is outstanding and the room air conditioning served us well when needed.

3) All sorts of dishes cups, glasses, utensils, household cleaners etc.

4) The view is breathtaking from all 3 floors.

5) Many of the staff speak English but it never hurts to work on our Spanish.

6) The bed was very comfortable with lots of bedding if needed.

7) Mexican TV leaves a lot to be desired but we hooked into it with our HDMI cable and watched our own movies.

8) Staff come by regularly to clean and freshen the suite.

9) NOTE: In Mexico they want you to put your used toilet paper in the waste container in every bathroom and the staff are by every day to clean it. Not something we are used to doing but it obviously helps prevent sewer backups.

10) The pool is nicely heated and perfect for children and adults. the property is gated with security on site.

11) Grocery stores (Walmart and Sorieno's) very close by. Sorieno's allows us to take our shopping carts to our suite to carry heavy groceries.

12) Lots of restaurants and misc shopping all around us. The on-site pool restaurant (open Thursday to Sunday) was a pleasant surprise. Great food and excellent prices.

13)The beach walks were fun but the ocean is for viewing only. No swimming in our immediate area.

14) Manzanillo is a MAJOR seaport town and tourism is in it's beginning stages. Busfare into town centre (Centro) is 9 pesos.

Owner's Response: In Elegance Blue it IS permitted to toss your toilet tissue (although nothing else) in the toilet. This does not apply to everywhere but if it is not permitted due to bad plumbing, there will be a sign asking you to deposit your paper in the garbage can. We have owned the condo for about 10 years and have always flushed the toilet tissue. Other than that, our guest was pretty much spot on. Manzanillo is being found by tourists and new owners alike, but here you will not find aggressive vendors trying to sell you their wares or time shares,

The condo and property are fabulous! Plenty of room with 3 stories! Facility is very clean, pool is heated and you can order food and drinks from the swim up bar or take your own drinks and food to have pool side. Grocery store is walking distance with plenty of restaurants in walking distance as well. Right next to the facility is a mini mall with arcade, trampoline place, movie theater and food court if feel like you’ve had too much sun it a great little break.

If it’s an adults getaway this is also a good location with two karaoke bars across the street and even a casino on the corner.

March Break Vacation 2018

  • 4 of 5

First of all, Jackie the owner of this Elegance Blue condo is wonderful to deal with, she was very prompt with her responses and helpful along the way.

The lobby area when we arrived is beautiful and welcoming, the front desk staff spoke some English, some were better than others, but, all friendly and helpful.

The pool is fantastic!! Our kids loved it and what a bonus to have the pool side restaurant to have a snack and a drink. The beach was not suitable to swim for the kids so having the pool there was excellent.

Location: Fantastic!! We walked to Walmart and Soriana Grocery Store and there are many restaurants within walking distance. 50 pesos taxi to go to Miramar Beach and buses on a very regular basis that were easy to use.

Condo: Clean and well kept, nice patios to enjoy the beautiful view

Security: We felt very safe in this condo as there were many security staff there

All in all we would recommend this condo to anyone!

Thank you Jackie!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we stayed in this condo and we will return for sure. The Gran pacifico staff is great specially the security folks to make you feel like home. The pool and all the shared areas are in great conditions same as the condo all the furniture in excelent conditions. I want to highlight that my wife is really special with hotel blankets and Jackie keeps everything like brand new. Location is great close to stores and restaurants.
