We were told we would only have WiFi access on our balcony and in the publix areas but we had it inside as well. I wanted...

We sailed our boat to Zihuatanejo and anchored in the protected harbor. We joined my friend here at her timeshare here and we loved it.

Beware on our trip we were asked to pay a large UPCharge at check in for an ocean front view we had reserved. This was very disappointing. Go only if owner for this reason. Do not bring children. Beautiful views if you have them. Very nice people but this was a surprise.

We stayed here for a week. The resort is built on a cliff with lots of steps going down to the beach. The rooms were comfortable with excellent views of the bay.

Excellent location on Playa La Ropa, easy 15min walk into Zihuatanejo centre. The hotel is designed to take advantage of 180 degree unobstructed views and privacy. Gorgeous gardens and Adobe design. We had a rooftop lookout suite that was incredible. Big comfy bed, huge patio with dip pool overlooking the bay. Outdoor shower and wall to wall louvre doors open...

Very nice place with spectacular views. Great staff and beach. No elevators so be ready to climb. Many fun activities for all to enjoy. Restaurant is very good and very convenient. No need to rent car as taxis are cheap. Ixtapa is worth seeing but very different than zihuatenejo. Weather very warm and sunny.
