The location of the resort is on a steep side of a hill, could be a challenge for those less energetic my legs especially my calfs were suitably tested on the many stairs. The views are fantastic we enjoyed some great sunsets. Both rooms we had, studio and beach cottage were very good and we could not fault anything. The...

We spent a week in the 3 bedroom villa. The villa was amazing. The staff is wonderful, so helpful. The Sunday brunch at Zi and lunch at the Surf Club were great. The only downside was that the restaurant was not open for dinner as it is off season in Zihua. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance. The...

A bit pricey, and I think things like using the kayaks should be included in the price, but a lovely place to relax. Excellent staff!! Very good food and drinks with great service. Rooms are fabulous. Be prepared for stairs!!

I stayed with a friend in one of the two bedroom villas this past June. The resort is beautiful, though room location is important to optimize this aspect - go for the full ocean view! Service was usually excellent with a couple of small glitches. We did not get consistently good service in the restaurant (waited over 30 minutes for...

Let me start by saying that I considered give the hotel 4 stars instead of five because only the bar restaurant is open after 1 PM (then only until 7), but all the other elements of a wonderful vacation overshadow that glitch. This was our first visit to Zihautanejo and we fell in love with it. The whole area is...
