I stayed here for two weeks prior to Easter and loved it. My friends have stayed here many times over the years. We had the cottage facing onto the beach, Yes the place is old and in great need of a little love and attention, we spent hours cleaning the day we arrived scrubbing and bleaching everything, after this we...

Recently stayed 8 nights. Loved it! Did not see a single bug in the room. Location was perfect for early breakfast and dinner walks. Staff at hotel very helpful. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars was no a/c. I would have liked it for a few of the days, for others did not even need. Location and... More

Oh my, where to begin? I read the raving reviews of this place and it was a no-brainer to reserve here. But after only one day, demanding our money back the next morning and not getting it because we had no leverage after paying cash, the only reason I am giving the place a 2 instead of a 1 is...

As noted in other reviews, this hotel is a precious gem. Simple but very well constructed and maintained beachfront casitas. Private but steps from the water. Extremely low-key tropical atmosphere. Very quiet section of Playa La Ropa, Zihuatanejo- short walk to low key (and some high end) restaurants. A perfect quiet getaway. The one proviso- if you want to reserve... More

MANY YEARS AGO we discovered Las Urracas by chance: walking on Playa del Ropa one evening. We stayed there only once buy oh my wasn't it wonderful. We too stayed in # three with the little kitchen and the balcony, just steps from the beach. Seniora Hernandez and her family counldn't have been nicer. Regretfully we never got back. Phone... More

It's a secret place: perhaps you'll find it mentioned somewhere in the forums on the web or in some book, but in the end you'll never end up staying there. There is no email or website, and you can only contact the owners by phone, which is not easy. But we made the impossible: just went there in low-season November,... More

Las Urracas is a lovely "hotel". It is run by a family who couldn't be nicer. We had our own balcony and small kitchen and the beach was a few yards away. It is very difficult to get a reservation unless you are known locally. It is truly a hidden paradise.

My family stayed here many years ago. I loved it. As I mentioned in my title, it has no frills but the gardens and the simple Mexican ambience is the reason I would want to return. Just steps from La Ropa beach you can hear the ocean from probably all the cottages. The staff.. I hardly saw them, but our... More
