Overview

About the property

Look no further for luxury, relaxation, and some of the very best views in Zihua

Preciosa on the Bay is Zihuatanejo's most luxurious resort condo building. Located just up the hill from Playa la Ropa, the sand is less than a five minute walk away. Or simply relax in the infinity pool and gaze out across the stunning view of the bay. The 2000sqft condo has every amenity and convenience at your fingertips.

The 500sqft balcony is a perfect place to watch the sun set over the bay, or see the fish jumping as they feed in morning light. It has a wet bar, gas grill, and outdoor kitchenette, making it a great spot for small gatherings.

The condo is set up perfectly so that you can see the panoramic views from any room in the house. It has a large master bedroom with a king size bed, private bath, and walk in closet. The second bedroom has one queen size bed and one single, with a shared bath. Located off the terrace is a bonus room with large couches, TV, and a view of the bay.

All the rooms are spacious and have a very wide open feel. The kitchen is roomy and modern, and all cookware is provided. The tap water is filtered and drinking water is provided by the building in 5 gallon bottles so no need to buy bottled water. All plugs are American/Canadian style so no need for adapters. The in house washer and dryer add convenience as well.

There is high speed wireless internet, and free calling to the US, Canada, and Mexico. This is really ideal for working vacations, or just keeping in touch in case someone needs you. Located in the living room is a 2017 Samsung smart TV, so you can watch Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and others.

There is a manager onsite who speaks excellent English. She is there not only to assist with the condo itself, but she can help you arrange massages, a private chef at the condo, watersports, or just answer any questions you may have about Zihuatanejo. The building only has 10 units, and is always very relaxed.

Renting a car is not necessary; the beach is a less than 5 minute walk, as well as numerous restaurants. Taxis are numerous as well as inexpensive. If you do choose to rent a car, we have an off street parking spot for it.

The beach at Playa La Ropa is nice fine white sand. Some of the local restaurants have hammocks and tables on the sand, and it's very well accepted to spend your entire day there while ordering a couple of beers and chips with guacamole. The protected nature of the bay means that it's always calm at Playa la Ropa, and perfect for swimming.

However, a short distance outside of Zihuatanejo Bay, the shore is exposed to open ocean and world class surfing can be found. For those inclined towards fishing, tuna, marlin, mahi mahi, and wahoo are commonly caught, but Zihuatanejo is most well known as a world class destination for sailfish. In the winter months, when the bite is hot, it's not uncommon for boats to tag and release 12-15 sailfish per day.

Notes:
I tried my best to capture the majesty of the view, but I'm not the best photographer, and I'm not sure it's possible to convey just how breathtaking it is with pictures. The view is constantly changing, from the fish feeding in the morning light, to the boats flitting about on the bay, to the brightly colored parasails, to the pelicans soaring, to the dazzling array of sunset pinks and purples, finally to the twilight twinkling of the lights of Zihuatanejo. Staring out at the view with a good book and a cold cocktail truly is bliss.

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks at the Precosia and we all loved it. La Ropa beach was beautiful, lovely and Sandy and great for swimming. The pool at the condo was lovely, it was great to cool down in the pool and gaze at the awesome views. The condo it self was lovely and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Zihuat was a lovely town and we felt safe walking through it day or night. Only one downfall is anyone with mobility issues this could be a problem as the area is very hilly and there are many stairs. We will be back for sure.

Great apartment in wonderful ZIhua!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here recently. We loved everything and particularly the huge balcony with the incredible sweeping views - wake up to gorgeous sunrises and enjoy w drink to even more beautiful sunsets! It has all the amenities you would need and we especially appreciated the purified water, phone, washer and dryer and the plentiful towels for pool and beach! THe building has great staff and it's perfectly situated, a 5 minute walk down to la ropa beach and a 15 minute walk to all the action in charming ZIhua town. Besides being a perfect setting for R & R, ZIhua is also a town for foodies. Nothing but great meals, whether in ZIhua town, on the beach or in la ropa neighborhood. The local megamart and the markets in town have all you could need for food, produce and drinks. Jack the owner also responded to our inquiries promptly, and provided helpful advice.

Location

Nearest Airport
8 Miles
ZIH is 20 minutes by car
Nearest Beach
Playa La Ropa is a 5 minute walk
Car: not necessary

The great thing about this part of Playa la Ropa is that you get the best of all worlds. A variety of different restaurants, spas and the beach are in very close walking distance, but you are still in a very quiet area. Additionally, it's not too far to walk and very quick to taxi into downtown Zihuatanejo and be at the heart of it all.

Despite that Zihuatanejo is a small town, an incredible amount of western products are available. They have Sam's club, Walmart (named Bodega Aurrera), and another large target like store.

Zihuatanejo is also experiencing a boom in restaurants. You have fine dining options with views of the bay, burgers, pizza, seafood, Italian, and even Chinese. For me though, the real star is the local Mexican cuisine. It's as varied as it is delicious, with all sorts of inexpensive local restaurants specializing in different regional specialties.

The real reason why people love Zihuatanejo so much, is that it has a small town charm that makes you feel at home, but also has everything you could want on vacation. Relaxation and solitude are abundant, but if you like you can go ride quads on a beach or go out gamefishing (which is excellent). Zihua is everything you make of it.
