Casa Contenta is gorgeous. The layout of the house, the colors of the house, the decorations, the pool, the master suite are all lovely and elegant, yet with a very "Mexican" feel. There are restaurants that range from very casual to very elegant nearby. There are stores and gas stations etc. close at hand. The beaches are inviting. There is a reason for movies being made in Zihuatanejo (When a Man Loves a Woman; The Shawshank Redemption). My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing time on our stay.
