We chose Amuleto for our Honeymoon due to it's #1 ranking on Trip Advisor for hotels in Zihuatanejo. We were looking for a great room with ample outdoors space to enjoy the warm tropical air as a retreat from the cold rains of Oregon in February. As we eliminated resorts and hotels for being too big and noisy, for not... More

You will simply not find better combination of luxury accommodations, service, view, amenities and privacy in Zihuatanejo. Amuleto offers six suites three of which have private pools and large terraces with absolutely spectacular views of the bay and the Pacific. Because of its tucked away location on the mountain south of Las Gatas, there is very little pedestrian traffic and... More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend a week at Amuleto in late February. We stayed in the one of the terrace suites. Both of the terrace suites don't have their own plunge pool, but because the other 4 rooms do, we literally had the main pool to ourselves all week. We always travel with another couple on... More

We spent five relaxing nights at Amuleto in mid-January 2015. First off, without a doubt the price of admission was money well spent. Ragged from an early morning flight, we arrived at the compound and immediately felt at ease. After sipping on a potent margarita served with a side of fresh guacamole and chips, we ventured down to the amazing... More

We visited Amuleto in Zihuatanejo on our honeymoon over New Years Eve. What a stunning hotel overlooking the wonderful Zihuatanejo bay... Our hosts were very friendly and the staff were only too happy to help with anything we needed. We were constantly impressed by the multiple times per day turn down service. Every time we left our room, staff went... More

From beginning to end, a stay at Amuleto is like a stay in your own home...only infinitely better. It's designed and operated as if it is your home, devoid of a front desk, travel brochures and even charge tickets to sign for food or service. With only six suites, it very quickly becomes your home. There's no stress, only beauty... More

Everything about our dinner experience was magical for our party of four- the location, the view, the service, the food, the setting. The employees were very friendly and attentive, the drinks were excellent, the menu was interesting and extensive, and the food was unsurpassed. The prices were comparable to those in other fine restaurants in Zihuatanejo. Very highly recommended! We... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. Yes, it's expensive, but it's one of the few hotels I've visited that justifies its high price. Private, secluded, cozy, romantic, impeccably maintained, superbly staffed. Making this level of hospitality look effortless is very impressive. We spent a week in the "cheapest" room in the place -- which was still fantastic -- and... More

After reading the rave reviews about Amuleto, we thought we would give it a try for a week this January. Although I was excited to see what all the fuss was about, I was somewhat dubious. Could any place really be that good? Well - after a week there I can unequivocally say "yes!" This is a tranquil, pleasant, warm... More
