This was our sixth stay in Zih and at Hotel Casa Don Francisco. It has gotten to the point that when people ask where I am going on vacation I actually say, “home”. We love this hotel and so do many of the other guests who, like us are return visitors. Since there are so few rooms and it isn't... More

Top choice. Outstanding service, private ambience, nicely decorated, beautiful pool area. Some suites with a private pool. Great bay view from all suites. It is located just a 5 min walk from the beach. Great breakfast. Restaurant only open for breakfast; they will make good suggestions / reservations for lunch / dinner elsewhere. Can't wait to go back...

A few days after arriving at Casa Don a well run family hotel, Erica the owner mentions she needs a break before her guests start arriving and would I like to go to Mexico City with her for a few days. Sure! She also invited another couple we knew, bought our plane tickets and booked their hotel. Erica spent 20... More

My wife and I just came back from 11 days at the Hotel Don Francisco. One word -- AMAZING ! Erica and her staff ( Carmen and Arasmos) were beyond accommodating. They were like family welcoming visiting relatives. The grounds were immaculate; the room , La Perla, had such awesome views, we didn't want to leave. I would have to... More

My husband and I went to Zihua during the off season, and picked the Hotel Casa Don Francisco based on its reviews. It was wonderful...we went to celebrate my husband's birthday and were treated like a king and queen! Erica, the owner speaks perfect English and was extremely helpful in our choice of restaurants and shopping places. The hotel is... More

Hotel Casa Don Francisco was a lovely surprise! The hostess and owner, Erica, was warm, welcoming and very helpful. The property is gorgeous, unique and immaculately clean, as are the rooms and pools. Our room was spacious and the verandah hammock comfortable. Nice touches with fresh flowers and good quality bath amenities and towels. The breakfasts on the terrace were... More

Hotel Casa Don Francisco is an undiscovered Gem just off Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo Mexico. We vacationed in Zihua in the busy Christmas/New Years week, 2012/2013. Don Francisco was one of the few hotels with availability, was half the price of many of the hotels that had doubled their prices for the holidays, and was head and shoulders above... More

We chose Casa Don Francisco based on the reviews of TA. We were somewhat concerned not to find recent TripAdvisor reviews as the last one was posted in March. We were not disappointed. We occupied three suited during the week of Christmas. Erica and her team kept the place spotless, the rooms are very large with various configurations and balcony.... More

Lovely hotel, with friendly staff and very good value for the money. The architecture is beautiful -- lots of gracious touches and creativity. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The views are picture perfect. Walking distance to La Ropa beach and local restaurants. Zihuatanejo is a perfect place for a simple vacation in harmony with the ocean, taking yoga classes on...

This was our third stay at Hotel Casa Don Francisco, which pretty much says it all. Until we retire and can spend several months in Zih, Casa Don Francisco will always be our home away from home. The grounds are incredibly beautiful and serene. With only eight rooms in the hotel, there is a tremendous amount of privacy and very... More
