A guest room at Las Hadas Golf Resort and Marina in Manzanillo

Las Hadas Golf Resort and Marina
Those shiny particles in the sand, often said to be fairy dust, give this enchanted resort its name: Las Hadas. Built to suit the vision of Bolivian tin king, Antenor Patino, this white-washed, Moorish-style fantasy of a resort spills down a bougainvillea-covered hillside to a palm-fringed beach.

Hacienda de San Antonio
The boutique hotel experience doesn't get any better than this: 25 impeccable suites in a sprawling hacienda originally built in the 1870s. You immediately feel like you’ve entered a glorious picture book of Spanish colonial splendor.
