Loved everything about this place. Nestled into the quiet hillside of Playa Ropa, short walk to the beach, easy cab into the very cool town of Z, hard to leave the infinity pool though... :)

Amazing Location, Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. I was traveling with a friend who previously stayed at Playa La Ropa and highly recommended this location. Our stay did not disappoint. The accommodations were wonderful, and the location was absolutely perfect. We took full advantage of the infinity pool and didn't have to share with any other residents during our stay. Additionally, the beach was just a short walk away (under 10-minutes), where we were able to have 1-hour massage for $10.00 (I went daily). The restaurants located throughout downtown and along the beach were great. I found the local community to be very friendly, safe, and accommodating. I would not hesitate to book this location again in the near future.

Beautiful, spacious and quiet condo in a central location with great amenities and views. Magical!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place for our 5-night, mid-July vacation! It was my third time in Zihua, and this is by far the best place I've stayed. Breathtaking views, spacious, comfie bed, hot shower, loved the pool. Very quiet, secure and small complex in a great central location. Even though it is lovely in the photos, it is even more impressive in person. The interior finish out and amenities were very nice. The place has everything you need, and I will definitely stay here again! Thank you.

This property was everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The view was fantastic. Outdoor living at it's best. Everything was there that we needed and it was just a short walk to the beach. Temperature was on average 72 to 88 daily with a consistent breeze. We kept all the doors open and never turned on the air conditioning. There was a book that covered all the info you needed. We had a regular taxi driver "Andres" (in the book, what a great guy!) who took us wherever we wanted to go and was always available. The staff there were great, restaurants were close and town not far away. The only thing that some might not like is that there is a short walk uphill when you return from a walk to the beach or restaurants. Small penalty for a beautiful hillside view. You really can't beat this property. We'll be back.
