Me and my wife tend to travel a lot and we found this place cause a destination wedding we attended. What a wonderful surprise my only fear is that it gets popular and more expensive as its on the high end already but well worth it.
The views and the beach are wonderful, and the hotel is very well maintained. The most impressive thing to me was the hotel staff however. From the front desk, Jose Luis and Carlos were always so pleasant and willing to help in any way they could. The restaurant staff were so very attentive, too. The only thing that would make things better would be if there were waiters that came up to the pool area more often to take orders, but that was a very minor inconvenience. The staff had great suggestions for activities and restaurants in the area - and they would readily call cabs for us. They would relay where we wanted to go to the cab drivers, as we don't speak Spanish. Couldn't have a better staff.

This room was excellent, we stayed in the bottom rooms, just above the beach. Playa Ropa is the best beach in the area. This is not a hotel for anyone with a physical impairment as it is built on a side hill and there is nothing but stairs, however if you are in for a cardio workout, you couldn't find anything more comfortable. The restaurant was excellent value for your dollar, presentation was picture worthy.
Only other complaint was the beds were your typical Mexican hard as rock, which always takes time getting use to.
I also want to say what a fantastic staff that is here at the resort, fast, polite, honest and very personable!
Thank you for a memorable vacation

The Hotel is rather old, but has a comfortable feel to it. It has a great view of the Zihuatenjo bay and a good location for other resturants and not far from the market place. No phones, but then why would you want one. Each floor has WFI, so you can hook up your I-pad and send pictures for the views. I would say the rooms at the end of the floors are the best for 30 dollars more a night it would be worth it, since you get your on little hot tub or pool. The furniture is not great but the standard beds are very comfortable. Showers and bathroom need work but they work and kept very clean. Our room had 2 twin beds, a refrigerator, table and mirror and cloths rack. No chairs, you can use the chairs out side and large tables for working or cooking or having diner. Each floor has a small area for cooking your own stuff. We only ate breakfast across the street, which I believe is a sister hotel, good breakfast. The restaurant next doors serves a great Mahi Mahi. Remember your are there for the Ambience. Have a good time, we did and met some great people.
On the Pacific Coast of Guerrero, Mexico, the city of Zihuatanejo has worked hard to retain its “village” look and feel. Many downtown streets are still paved with cobblestones, and zoning laws prohibit buildings over 4 stories. A brick-paved beachfront promenade runs along Playa La Madera and Playa Principal to the pier, and all beaches along the bay are safe for swimming.
