Hotel Cinco Sentidos
Ranked #25 of 79 Hotels in Zihuatanejo
Reviewed 22 October 2017

Where do I start? Gorgeous place, every detail is so well thought out. From the details of the suites, the property overall, the breakfasts and the care and love of the owner Araceli and the staff that is so evident. We stayed in the grand suite on the top floor and wanted for nothing. Arrived to a batch of amazing guacamole, salsa and a fridge stocked with beer, sodas and water. The breakfasts were the best we had this trip. Beautiful platters of fruit and a different main dish every day. Loved the homemade granola, yogurt and marmelade.

The plunge pool on the patio with the view was so perfect. As was the air conditioned bedroom with satellite tv and same amazing view. Cell service was very good. Wifi was hit and miss in our room. Good on the dining area patio. For us this mattered as we were away during the wild fires in Sonoma County and being in touch with our pet sitter and others was critical. We had to leave a lovely rental house near Troncones we were staying at because of the lousy cell and wifi. Any other time it would not have mattered as much. But just a heads up....

Beautifully decorated and maintained. Small and intimate. Crisp clean sheets and towels, it was heavenly! We were the only guests when we were there last week. I think the level of service would always be as high and personal as it was during our stay, even with a full house.

Can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Zihuatanejo....thank you Araceli and to all for a great stay!

Room Tip: Loved the grand suite, highly recommended unless a lot of stairs is a problem.

This our 6th trip to Zihuatanejo and our 2nd stay here. We will never stay anywhere else! There are stairs to the rooms which could be a challenge for some but it is well worth it if it isn't problem.

The previous reviews touch on most all the great qualities of this fine boutique hotel. As a guest who has repeatedly stayed here, I'm still blown away by the attention to detail and how much the staff make you feel welcome every single day. Thank you Araceli, Maribelle and Paula for everything you do!!

As first timers to Zihuatanejo, my husband and I were eager to try a small property. We chose Cinco Sentidos based on photos and the abundance of 5 star tripadvisor reviews. Within minutes after arrival, we were captivated by the stunning property, gorgeous suite and warmth of Araceli and her sister Maribel. Our suite #2 was located closest to the pool and breakfast area. We found it to be lovely and very private. Suite 2 is the best choice if you prefer less of a stair climb to your room. Breakfasts were prepared by Araceli and graciously served by Marabel each day. Delicious and such a treat! We absolutely loved Zihuatanejo and can't wait to return next January. Without a doubt we will be staying at Cinco Sentidos!

My wife and I stayed at Cinco Sentidos over the holidays for two weeks and it blew our expectations out of the water. Araceli with her gourmet breakfast made it easy to get out of bed every morning. The service and cleanliness of the rooms definitely put some of our stays at a few five star resorts to shame. Both Maribel and Paola were incredibly kind and helpful with anything we needed help with. The private dunk pools on the patio was a highlight to come home to every night after dinner and Margaritas:) The king bed was so comfortable, we slept so well.

Another favourite part of our room is the huge window in the shower, it makes you feel like you're outside.
Such a great feature.

There was a taxi strike the day we were departing to come home and Araceli insisted she was taking us to the airport and wouldn't take no for an answer, now that's customer service!

A few must do's and must see's are:

Dinner at Mar Y Ceilo ( one of the best views and meals we had over the two weeks )

Rent a catamaran with Javier ( on the beach in front of Paty's ) and get him to take you to Las Gatas Beach drop you off and pick you up a few hours later. Super cheap and the best way to go there.

Taco's El Pastor downtown Zihua, you can enjoy 5 tacos for 25 peso's ( thats a buck )

Walk down Adelita Street, enjoy the restaurants and if its a Friday night go to Nardo's and listen to some live music ( 70's/ 80's Mexican cover band )

Much love to Araceli and the staff at Cinco Sentidos we'll see you next year for a few sunsets and more wine.
