This is a gem of a hotel. The rooms are simply beautiful, each one with a private small dipping pool overlooking the bay. Breakfasts are prepared daily by Araceli and her sister, Maribel. They are gifted hoteliers in the most professional sense: giving advice but also privacy--this is a small property after all.

While it is not right on the beach, you can see it from each room. You can also reach Playa la Ropa within a five-minute walk downhill. The way back, uphill, might be challenging for some. The walk to downtown Zihuatanejo (mostly downhill, but not just) is about 25 minutes.

This place offered us respite and rest. Greatly recommend it if you like quiet, aesthetics and sea breeze. Simply fantastic.

We enjoy small boutique style accommodations for our vacations! Cinco Sentidos is an amazing hotel - the views, the rooms, the pool area, and the outstanding breakfasts make this hotel paradise! Everything is spotlessly clean and located in a great location making walking into town or to Playa Ropa. Araceli and her team are incredibly hospitable and will help make recommendations or reservations to ensure your vacation is exactly what you want it to be. Zihuatenjo was an excellent location if you are looking for relaxation, great food and incredible weather!

I have just returned from a week (Jan 16-23, 2016) at Cinco Sentidos – an absolute gem of a vacation destination. Having typically been the “all-inclusive” traveller, this vacation was a step into the unknown by booking a small intimate “boutique style” accommodation. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance (by Max) and then introduced to Ariceli (the co owner), we were hooked on Cinco Sentidos.
Like many who have reviewed this place, I am a little reluctant to let the world learn of it …. I want it all to myself whenever I wish to revisit – and I will definitely re-visit. That would however be so unfair on Araceli and her sister who own and run the hotel.
There have been many reviews that have attempted to describe how wonderful the breakfasts are. I will not even try other than to say that no written word can come close to expressing how amazing it was to start your day with the creations that Araceli presented. The presentation’s and attention to detail were mouth-watering even before you took a mouthful. When you took a mouthful you savoured every morsel......delicious. The "pancakes" were like no pancake you have ever tasted.......I cannot begin to describe them. You just have to experience for yourself.
The grounds and accommodation were immaculately maintained by Max and Paula.
We stayed in room #3 on the second level and our friends had the Grand suite on the top level. We also had a chance to view room #4. All accommodation is excellent, with the Grand suite being the best - as you might expect. WHEN we return (as we surely will), I would try and book the Grand suite, but would be just as happy if I was back in #3 or #4. I cannot comment on rooms #1 and #2.
I said to Araceli on our last day that we were made to feel like guest in her own home, as their was nothing that she would not accommodate.
If you wanted a week of total relaxation by just staying in the hotel, you can find this at Cinco Sentidos. Equally, it is a 5 minute stroll to the beach where you will find many great and inexpensive restaurants to choose from. On top of that, you can jump in a taxi and head into Zihua for and endless selection of places to choose from. We did not have one bad meal in our entire time.
This is a gem of a place ..... we all had a fantastic time and plan on returning again in the very near future.

Another year and wonderful stay at Cinco Sentidos.
My wife and I look forward to our yearly stay Zihuatanejo and Cinco Sentidos is a crucial part of the equation.
This year we stayed for 16 days.
Araceli continues to keep up the tradition of a incredibly beautiful setting, a breakfast that it out of this world and a beautifully designed and peaceful resort.
We are always sad to leave and count the days until we are back again.
Thank-you Araceli and the Cinco Sentidos staff!!!!

Room Tip: you can not go wrong with any of the rooms at this hotel.

We stayed in this great hotel for 8 nights - it was perfect. I felt like it was our own paradise. Ms. A and her staff are top notch. There are no surprises here- the pictures are right on. The breakfast that is included just can't be rated, it is just soo good. Fresh fruit, fresh juices, and main entree.

We enjoyed the sunsets from the beach and also from our infinity pool with a glass of wine in hand. The grand suite is unbelievable, great view and you can hear the waves, so peaceful.

Ms. A will help you with reservations, calling a taxi etc. there isn't anything they won't assist with.

I had massages on Playa Ropa beach everyday - they were fantastic and only 13.00 US dollars.

We loved the food at Paty's, don't miss the mango coconut ice cream ... Heavenly.

I hesitate writing this review with the risk of a great place becoming so popular, but it's just too good not to give credit where credit is due. Keep up the great work Ms. A - we will be back.

Room Tip: Go and enjoy paradise
