This was our second trip to Villa Mexicana - this time traveling with our 1 year old. The location on Playa Ropa is excellent and the grounds/pools and public spaces of the hotel are perfect. It's a small property, with 2 very small pools and 1 medium pool so after a couple of days on-site, you kind of "get to... More

One of the nicest locations on La Ropa. It's good for a morning walk either direction down the beach. We went on a package deal thru an agency and got "run of the house" rooms. Upon arrival we were offered upgraded rooms at the front desk at an additional cost. We asked to see both types of rooms. The room... More

Villa Mexicana is the preferred destination of good friends - where they've been going for 10 years or more. This year we went with them (our 1st time in Zihuatinejo) and now we see why they like it so much. Informal, clean, right on the Playa La Ropa, excellent breakfasts and good food for other meals. The beach is clean,... More

Our party of three just returned from a six day stay at Villa Mexicana and love the location. While the food quality has improved since our last visit I would recommend exploring the nearby restaurants for less expensive and better quality food. Our room was not ready upon arrival, and when we did get our room they were still repairing... More

Great hotel and service. We had the breakfast included and it was wonderful but my FAVORITE menu item, Marshal Waffles, was not an item included in the breakfast plan. I would like that changed for my next visit!! :)

Love the location with clean rooms and great beach. But we felt the staff was shady. We booked through Orbitz one month prior and even called the day before and received a confirmation from Orbitz that everything was in order and contintental breakfast was included. When we arrived we were immediately told that there were no rooms and that we... More

Lovely in almost every way. Beach stunning, food delicious, very clean room and grounds, and the service very good. Only draw back for us was the limited space for a quiet place to relax on the beach. Even getting up at 5:30 am to secure a spot you were still packed in with other people under one palapa. Because my... More

Service before arrival- not very helpful. Asked if they could provide a cot- they said they couldn't guarantee it and could only confirm when we book in. Asked if they could buy a couple of cartons of soya milk for our son who is allergic to milk. They said it would be a bit difficult and they doubted it would... More

We, 2 couples, stayed here a week, and totally enjoyed our time there. We had rooms that did not face the ocean, and they were lovely & clean, sound proof, with typical Mexican hard beds. The rooms are very basic....no fridge...but you are not probably going to spend much time in your room. Breakfast was included in our package, and... More
