Lovely location above the bay with beautiful sunset views. The property is well maintained and decorated beautifully. A very private setting. Staff was very helpful and owners were able to assist with any and all of our requests, including Covid 19 testing prior to leaving.

Property's Favourite Review
We had the best time at Casa Solana. Everything about the place is beautiful and the attention to detail does not go unnoticed. We stayed in the 'Cocos' suite, on the top floor with a panoramic view of Zihuatenejo Bay. Our large room had everything we needed - large, covered deck with a hammock; free, reliable wifi; kitchenette; comfortable beds; spacious living area and bathroom - and the most incredible outdoor shower featuring expansive ocean views. Despite the warm temperatures, we didn't need the a/c as there are many screened windows and the room was naturally cooled by the ocean breezes. Each day, we were served a delicious breakfast and had the chance to chat both with Melissa and Sriram, as well as with other guests. Melissa and Sriram are great hosts who go out of their way to ensure that all guests feel welcome. They are a wealth of information and provided us with many useful suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants. The staff are friendly and attentive and work hard to ensure that guests are well cared for. Our room was always spotless and we looked forward to the daily towel sculptures that were left for us. We liked the fact that we could get some exercise by walking to and from the beaches and into town - about 8 minutes to Playa Las Gatas, about 15 minutes to Playa La Ropa, and a hearty 45 minute walk into Zihuatenejo. Melissa and Sriram pride themselves on providing personable and personalized service, and looked after every detail - from arranging for a taxi to pick us up at the airport to making dinner reservations for us. Everything about Casa Solana exceeded our expectations - you won't be disappointed!

We stayed for 10 days at Solana and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! The property is located on a hillside above Playa Las Gatas, and from that vantage point has terrific views of Zihuatanejo bay. We stayed in the Cocos studio, and our suite had incredible views of the water, complete with hammock and comfy recliner lounge chair! We also enjoyed making a few meals in our kitchenette and sitting at our table, enjoying the incredible view. The breakfast/common area and infinity pool and deck also have this same fantastic view. Melissa and Sriram, the owners, are incredibly warm and hospitable, and we enjoyed chatting with them each morning before breakfast. They are very knowledgable and can help with anything you might need during your stay. The staff is also kind and well trained, and Claudia made beautiful flower arrangements for our room. Breakfast was served every morning by the pool, with a great variety of Mexican and American style dishes, together with fresh fruit, juices, tea and coffee. Melissa is a superb cook, and we never left breakfast hungry! During warmer afternoons, the pool was a perfect way to cool off while enjoying the scenery and getting some exercise. The central part of town is on the other side of the bay, and you can get there either by a car taxi (about 80 pesos) or water taxi (50 pesos per person). We did both and especially enjoyed the water taxi, as it allows you to enjoy the bay. Playa La Ropa is about a 20 minute walk from Casa Solana. To get to Playa Las Gatas (where the water taxi is), you first walk to Playa La Ropa, then walk along the rocky shoreline for about 10 to 15 minutes. Las Gatas feels a bit more secluded and off the beaten path than La Ropa. Because of the more secluded and private location of the hotel, they have a wonderful English-speaking taxi driver, Andres, who will take you anywhere you want to go. And it's a short taxi ride to the central part of town. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway to unwind and decompress, this is a terrific place to stay. You will come away rejuvenated!

My husband and I have just returned from a two week vacation in Zihuatanejo! I had booked the holiday way back in February and so was quite worried that we might not be able to go to Mexico due to the pandemic. However, Casa Solano was open for guests. From the moment we arrived at this beautiful B&B we knew we had stepped into a magical place! The owners - Melissa and her husband Sriram are truly splendid people. They are most certainly in the right business of hospitality. We were welcomed, our bags were taken up to our gorgeous studio apartment The Azullilo Suite where the view of the bay and the town was spectacular. A welcome basket of goodies awaited us as well as a couple of ice cold beers in our fridge. This lovely couple have thought of every little thing to make their guests comfortable. The place was immaculate with fresh flowers, pretty toiletries and beautiful furniture and furnishings. We slept in a most comfortable bed with fans or air conditioning if we needed it. Serenaded by birds in the morning, we went down to breakfast on the terrace. Oh, the breakfasts!! Each morning we were treated to delicious breads and pastries, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, coffee and an entree which was different each day. Melissa is a gourmet cook and produced all kinds of hot treats for us. Masks were worn, we kept our distance but each morning we thoroughly enjoyed a good chat with Sriram and Melissa. As we were the only guests during our stay we had the run of the place to ourselves, the salt water infinity pool, the lush gardens, the library and the veranda. The staff of 3 - Claudia, Enrique and Elias were there for us whatever we needed. Melissa and Sriram gave us loads of helpful suggestions for sights to see, the way to the beaches, the best restaurants and the number of the taxi guy who stood by to take us wherever we wanted to go at a very inexpensive price. Resting in the late afternoon with strong WiFi to watch a show or check email appreciating the soft sea breeze we felt we had indeed landed in a Mexican paradise. After a horrible year of the pandemic, the stress of living, we were completely rejuvenated by this wonderful place. Sincere and deep thanks Melissa and Sriram! Michael and I had a delightful time. Even our ride from and to the nearby airport was made easy by our hosts who arranged for the taxi to pick us up. The view from our deck each morning and night will stay with me forever. Peaceful, beautiful Zihuatanejo....Of course we will return!!! For any folks desperate to get away for a winter break jump on the Casa Solano website and book your suite! You will not be disappointed.
