Reviews for Marina Las Hadas
Not cruiser friendly!!, 2017-04-15
Captain: , Anacortes, WA (10)

We med moored with our own tackle, marina staff were nice, and helped with lines. There are also a few mooring lines that can be picked up as well, but we weren't sure. After staying three nights we realized the permanent mooring lines are for tenants, not transients. So, be prepared to set a hook and back down to the dock!

Power was very sketchy. Only 15A at our slip, and the entire outlet was dangling by the wiring. We didn't take power.

Non potable water.

No access to resort facilities (pool, bar, etc) w/o 900 peso extra fee/day! You can't even order a cerveca!!

Showers are PUBLIC and a long walk.

Aside from the three restaurants along the marina (not open until 6pm), everything is a long cab ride away!

Couldn't find propane anywhere. Cab driver tried, but the propane shop didn't have the proper fittings.

Good provisioning if you don't mind the cab. Loads of big box stores within a few miles. However, you'd be better to anchor out and pay the 250/day at the dinghy dock!

Not Really Worth It..., 2017-02-15

This is another marina hanging off a resort.
It is med-tie only, and run down as others have commented. The new dinghy dock policy at 250 pesos/day (no pool access) seems to be designed to discourage cruisers. The only benefit for us was access to a taxi. We had a pleasant stay anchored in the small bay that is in the lee of the marina entrance although you will get sick of the non-stop jetskis pretty quickly.

Run down and not much happening, 2016-11-25
Captain: , San Diego (10)

We were outside in the anchorage with only one other unoccupied sailboat. We came in to re-provision. The charge to tie up the dinghy was $200 pesos. Didn?t ask what all it included. Only one employee, gardener/fuel & marina attendant all in one. The fuel dock is L shaped so a bit hard to pull in. We used jerry jugs. The marina is really run down. The docks themself are this funky plastic stuff and soft. Not secure, but our dinghy was fine while we had a cocktail. The marina is pretty protected weather wise. It?s also small. There are 2 restaurants and a mini mart with ice.

$20 a day for dinghy landing, 2013-05-25

OK, you can use the pool and drink overpriced beer in a "Has Been" hotel that is associated with Bo Derek. Beware, Bo actually did her beach strolling on the other side of pennisula.

You can try to drop your crew off for lunch at the Marina's many resturants, but keep a $20 in your pocket as you will be hunted down for tieing up. If you must come here and want to park the dink consider pulling in the big boat as the cost may only be another Andrew Jackson.

Pet owners.: Taxis at Las Hadas will not accept your pooch. We had to walk up to the Dolphin Cove Inn to find a taxi to take our dog to the vet.

What can I say, this place is a "10", 2013-04-17

Actually Bo Derek made this hotel famous when she filmed the movie %u201C10%u201D here. Classic Mexico, very pretty Moorish architecture (I think). When I was here in 1999 the cheapest diesel in Mexico could be found in Manzanillo.

Marina Las Hadas, 2013-01-28

This med-moor tie marina is the only marina in the Manzanillo area. The marina is part of the Las Hadas resort and the people running the marina are hard to contact. Try going thru the resort to locate the marina people. Docks are in reasonably good shape with water and power. Water is reported to be non-potable. However, we used it for everything onboard after filtering with a 3-stage ceramic filter. Reasonably good spacing between boats. Not much security on the docks. Security gates are left open and a number of resort guests wandering docks, but not a problem.

Difficult to get marina people to help with reserving space, finding space when arriving, helping with docking, paying, and paperwork. Once you find the marina people they are reasonably helpful.

Fuel dock has a LOT of surge and difficult to side-tie.
