The instructors and staff are excellent. The maintenance of the property is terrible. We have been here 3 separate years the first one, 5 years ago was terrific. After that they have been cutting back on the quality of the food and just band aids to their electrical and hot water. We lost power, meaning no water, lights, toilets etc....

Louis F- Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff and instructors, as they want only to facilitate the best possible experience for all of our guests. As I mentioned in my response to your traveling companion's similar review from March 8th; your accusation of having poor food quality is wholly untrue and our electrical and plumbing grids are...

We enjoyed a magical week at Present Moment. The setting is gorgeous, grounds and bungalows are clean. The food is absolutely amazing. The sound of the surf is mesmerizing, But what really makes PM special is the staff. The office is efficiently run by the gracious sisters Erica and America. The restaurant & bar staff are really great, and our...

My high school friend and I traveled to Present Moment and stayed in Unity with the yoga and meal package. It is a beautiful place that is tastefully decorated and well laid out. The room we stayed in was very open with mosquito nets around the beds. I was warm a couple of nights but a cool shower before bed...

My trip to Present Moment (October 2015) was absolutely the best. From the moment my travel companion and I got off the plane, there was a woman waiting for us with our names on a sign, with a pre-ordered taxi (and we forgot to tell them our flight info!!!) We were immediately put to ease. The resort is everything you...

Pros: A lovely setting and welcoming, kind staff at Present Moment who worked to make the stay very special. It was very relaxing to listen to and see the ocean from the dining area and also while doing yoga. Pool area was also very nice. Con: The website is very misleading regarding how many class offerings there are daily. It...

So much information has already been written... the location is lovely, the staff exceptional, and the food is fresh and healthy.

I have stayed at Present Moment twice and both times were amazing. The first time was with my husband when we took a getaway (finally) after 19 years of marriage.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exclusive oceanfront boutique hotel and yoga retreat is situated on a quiet, serene beach in Troncones, thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes, yoga by the sea, meditation, qigong, dance classes and more. Rejuvenate with our offerings of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on healthy gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, waterfall hiking, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, exploring the village and much more. Our loving staff have pleased even the most discerning guests, and are ready to delight you. Our eleven private bungalows are the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Each unique bungalow is dedicated to one of the values that we hold in the highest regard. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of Present Moment. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen. ... more   less
