The staff, and esp. Cintya was wonderful to help us on anything we needed, and also on info about the area of Zihua. I would definitely return--one week there was just not long enough. Next time we hope to take a "guided tour" in the countryside!

Since 2000, my annual winter vacation destination is Zihuatanejo. I absolutely LOVE Zihuatanejo and like to consider myself an expert. Over the years, I have stayed at many different accommodations - condos, hotels, B&B's….the first time I stayed at Villa Carolina was in 2002. This year marked my 3rd stay at this charming hotel. Comparing VC to all of the... More

This year we once again spent a marvelous three weeks at this splendid seven-suite B&B. The owners and staff have tweaked up an already super place. The suites are ample for a long stay, including a kitchen and dining area. The size of pool and plentiful chaises, tables, and chairs accommodate all clients comfortably. And that clientele fits with a... More

If you are looking for a lovely place to go and celebrate a special occassion - this is the place. The staff are absolutely top notch. The suites provide a secluded area for privacy or if you want to sit and visit with other guests there are lounge chairs by the pool. You can make your own meals as the... More

We thourougly enjoyed our stay at Villa Carolina and the staff were wonderful. We had a garden suite and a master suite and both were excellent. It was nice to have the kitchen in the garden suite so close to the pool. With only 7 rooms, the pool was never crowded and it was quiet with no kids under 14... More

We have travelled extensively but this was our first time to Zihuatanejo and to the boutique hotel, Villa Carolina. This is a beautiful 7 suite boutique hotel with a stunning palapa architectural design. It's great location, just a 2 minute stroll from incredible Ropa beach, gives you the option of lively beach action or just relaxing around the hotel pool.... More

We were so sad to leave Zihua & our home away from home, Villa Carolina. We had the pool to ourselves during Family Week, much to the grandkid's delight. We love the spacious Garden Suites- everything is just a step away, the kitchenette perfect for snacks & drinks. Marta cooked a fantastic dinner with the fish we caught on a... More

We have just returned from our second stay at the Villa Carolina. Given the choice we would never stay anywhere else in Zihua - they are booked full during our week next year :( We will have to try somewhere else. We have stayed in a Master Suite and a Garden Suite. Our preference is the Garden Suite. It has... More

When you think of excellence in a boutique hotel in a resort town, you think of the suites (great), aesthetics (a lovely building with a lovely patio/pool area) , setting (near beach, good restaurants, nearby taxi stand and bus stop) and service (fine staff and quite remarkable manager/concierge). Yet, it is the totality -- this sum is really greater than... More

We found the Villas Carolina three years ago and we know this is where we will always return. As far as we are concerned there couldn't be a nicer place to stay. The rooms are lovely and quite large with their own patios and small kitchens which we find a real asset. There are sweet rolls and coffee provided each... More
