You cannot beat the convenience of this place on Playa Madera. Very easy walk to town or sty close by for meals in some great restaurants within a few minutes walk. We ended up with a 2 br that was within 10 yards of the beach. Full kitchen, ample bathroom area with great shower. Ac worked perfectly in bedroom. No... More

my wife and I have just returned from 4 weeks with the wonderful Gladys and her amazing staff. the place is very well maintained, with maid service every day and helpful folks at the desk and keeping the grounds immaculate. We stayed in #10, #2 and #4 and each had its own charm. the location is perfect as it is... More

I had a great stay here just last week. The location is ideal, perched above Playa Madera. The hotel has its own little section of beach where you can use lounge chairs for free. Really good massage is available there for a lower price than other locales. Armando and Clarize, the owners, are very personable and helpful, as is the... More

We have just returned from our second trip to Zihuatanejo - both times we have stayed at Arena Suites on Madera Beach. It is a tidy, well located small hotel (10 rooms) which is perfect for a lazy week at the beach. The rooms are clean and all are different - we like Unit #10 with its private outside kitchen,...

We found Las Arenas using Trip Advisor b/c the reviews were so good, & they were spot on! The price was amazing, the location couldn't have been better, & the staff are kind & professional. Would stay again!

Clean rooms with a good air conditioner, a tidy and well looked after little hotel ideal four couples who like to spend a few quiet days in an authentic little town. Jogging along the pretty and quite clean beach in the morning reveals a little fish market in the centre.

We stayed 2 nights in this large hotel room. It was great. It had a full kitchen, a bathroom and an area to get ready. It is right on the beach that is gorgeous. It is about a 5 to 10 min walk to Zihuatanejo. I would stay here again. Some of the staff don't know any english.

My husband and I were so enchanted by the Arena Suites on our first visit in 2010 that we invited our adult children and their families to accompany us during March break this year. One family with an 8-year-old and 10-year-old took us up on our offer. The Club Madera suite was perfect for them with its two ensuite bedrooms,... More

Stayed here in January 2012. As mentioned by other travelers, these units are exceptionally clean and well managed. The housecleaning staff goes overboard to make sure your your needs are met and you have everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. The only negative point about Arena Suites is the number of stairs needed to hit the beach or climb to... More

This was our third time staying at Arena Suites, aka Bungalows Ley. It was wonderful walking into a clean, furnished room after a long day flying. When making our reservations we requested # 2 again but it was booked. We were quickly encouraged to reserve #10, it has the same amenities, outdoor kitchen and deck, as #2 so agreed to... More
