Few people are able to realise a dream, and even fewer are able to share their dreams with others. We feel very blessed to have spent time in your dream and dare to hope we can do so again!

It was such a pleasure for us to enjoy the good vibrations at Los Raqueros. Maybe we were lucky to find so many good friends and people to talk to but..this is a special place to be and you Hans and Angie-are special too, so we think it wasn?t just luck.

Hans, Deinen feinen und ironishen Humor warden wir nicht vergessen und es is gut zu wissen, dass es einen wondervollen Platz gibt, wenn man den rest der Welt vergessen will!

Danke fuer alles und hoffentlich bis bald.

Veel liefs,

We felt comfort and right at home when entering the grounds at Raqueros. All of our expectations were exceeded in every way, shape and form. We are thankful for the hospitality of our hosts, and for the calm, relaxed, feelings we have as we return home.

Thank you very much for providing Debbie and I with great accommodations to help us in our on-going quest for rest and relaxation. Your hospitality and knowledge of the area does not go unnoticed! Lazy days and quiet nights were exactly what we hoped for and received!

We will go back to the States relaxed abd ready for whatever we are faced with! Tuffy and Marimba are wonderful dogs. We enjoyed their company.

The web site that advertises Posada de Los Raqueros is nicely done. It does however lack one thing. This was our 4th trip here. The web site could never come close to explaining about the true heart of this beautiful place. Hans and Angie, from the first ?Welcome Home? to the ?Goodbye?, there is nothing these two people could not do to make your stay as private and peaceful as you could imagine.

Muchas Gracias me Amigos

You have created a wonderful atmosphere at a beautiful place. We enjoyed our honeymoon very much.

Uwe and Steffie Weinzierl

You, your staff and your wonderful home hold such appeal for the traveler ? these who wish to see the beauty surrounding them from the perspective of those who live where they have been privileged to travel. As wonderful as this gorgeous setting, so too are the smiles, the laughter, the conversations that you and others here have shared.
Paradise is not lost. It is found here at Posada de los Raqueros. May the tourists love Ixtapa!!

Gracias amigo Y amiga

What a beautiful place you have. This is a paradise tht you should be proud of. Our Casita was comfy and cute and we loved the front yard. Coming here was the most relaxing part of our trip. The surf out front and down at the beach was great. THE BEACHES WERE GREAT, THE SURF WAS GREAT, THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND THE PEOPLE WERE GREAT. We look forward to coming back.

Posada de los Raqueros is quite unlike anything I have experienced in my travels throughout Mexico. There is a profound sense of peace and tranquility. The d?cor is eclectic; it felt as if I were staying in an art gallery or a museum ? wall hangings, statues, pottery, carved masks- everywhere. I looked if there was something more to take in. It is the sum of a multitude of special touches that add up to an incredible experience: The ?real? world seems a million miles away. I felt a sense of timelessness as I stepped from the beach into the ocean and snorkeled for hours. It felt as if I were in an Italian villa or Moroccan palace. This is a place of rejuvenation for the body, mind and spirit? a place I will remember forever.

Wendy Lee- Midhurst Ont. Canada

You said ?Welcome Home? when we arrived and it has truly felt that way ? like coming home. Meditating as the sun rises, in total solitude (save for an occasional canine companion) is a precious gift. We loved everything about the experience this year. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting your son Sorin, spending time with the two of you, a wonderful Christmas dinner and New Year?s eve at Do?a Martha?s, Glenn and I having smoothies in the AM at our special table for 2, the sound of the surf, the warmth of the sea, the glorious sun. Thank you so very much and see you next Christmas!

With Love, the Gores

Thanks so much for the great accommodations and the very special vibe?. Feels like home.
You are special people surrounded by so much beauty. Good feelings to you Hans, Angie and staff.

As one of the founding disciples of ?tufi?ism?, I must say, these past weeks have been enjoyable. Enlightening & invigorating! ?Wherever I will go, there I will be? and the friendly spirit of ?tufi? will follow!
Last week, yesterday, tomorrow ? it really does not matter when you are a guest at Posada de los Raqueros ? rest assured – as the world gets crazier, Hans and Angie see to it that Raqueros only gets better! Many, many thanks. I look forward to my next week under these truly lucky stars!

La posada de los Raqueros es manifique. Le surf formidable, les poissons y l’oiseaux unique. Le retour a Marseille va etre dur. Merci beaucoup por cet accueil chaleureux. Plein de belles choses.

Mis finos y estimados anfitriones Hans y Angie:

Fue un verdadero placer el haber estado con ustedes en su estupenda Posada, y sobre todo en una de las mejores caba?as, que es la casita de la Mariposa. Lo mas considerable de la agradable estancia no lo fue el lugar sino su incomparable trato, y espero que compartan mi deseo de que nos consideren sus amigos, nos sentimos mejor que en nuestra casa, y el trato que recibimos de ustedes fue mejor que el que se le da a un viejo amigo. No hay mejor forma de poder agradecerles su amable e incomparable hospitalidad que ofrecerles nuestra casa, que como se los comentamos en la pl?tica y que les dejamos nuestras direcciones. Estamos para servirles y los esperamos cuando vengan a esta bella y colonial Morelia.

Un saludo cordial de sus amigos, Rafael, Manuel, Fabian y Sergio Arturo.

There is a TV commercial where you see the ocean, the reflection of the sun, a chaise lounge and thatch roof canopy. There is stillness between the sounds of ocean waves. A cell phone goes off and the arm of a guy picks it up, then he drops it into the ice cubes and water that are cooling bottles of Corona beer. The sea continues to whisper.

That laid-back feeling was a part of my experience when I visited the posadas. Some mornings started early watching the mist over the ocean where you cannot distinguish between sea and sky. I combed the Playa Manzanillo and other beaches for shells and took a midnight swim with tiny luciferase animals that glittered on my t-shirt like a reflection of the stars. I dined with Hans and friends, talked to men and women from all over the world, took a hundred photos of people and pelicans, http://community.webshots.com/user/mzdiana111, walked to a nearby fishing village, wrote poems, surfed the waves, shopped in Zihuatanejo, enjoyed a massage from Karolyn?s magical hands, sipped wine at sunset engaging in relaxed conversation with always the rhythm of the ocean waves reminding us that we are alive.

To whomever gets this mail….. I just wanted to let you know that I have never written a note to anyone after staying at their establishment. We were totally satisfied and felt so at home at Raqueros. We never got or felt we needed a key. Libo, Chencho, Beatrice and Karoline were great to us and we loved the Casita de la Mariposa. My husband John tells everyone how unbelievable luxurious it was. And, he is right. We are home now and as much as I love leaving I love to get home. Tuffy, the resident dog, was the greatest. Hope to see you next year…
