I've stayed at Amuleto a dozen times over the last 9 years and I have to say that the experience never gets old. The property has a casual, rustic sense of luxury that I've experienced at no other hotel (and my wife and I are fairly well traveled). The service is excellent and unobtrusive. The staff is exceptionally well trained.... More

My wife and I just returned from our stay at Amuleto. To say that our stay was perfect does not do justice to this wonderful spot. The hotel perched high above Playa La Ropa is a treat for the eyes. It was designed with care to create feelings of peace, tranquility and rest. Our suite with it's beautiful views of... More

I will join in the long litany of 'We are not worthy, Amuleto!!' reviews. It was great. My wife and I spent the week in Suite 1. Pablo, BeBe, Jacobo, Angel - the whole staff was simply fantastic. We will remember for the trip for a long time to come.

Because of Hurricane Patricia our visit to Puerto Vallarta was changed to Zihuatanejo at the last minute. We had visited ZIH 10 years earlier and really enjoyed our stay at Villa Del Sol, which is now Viceroy. During our visit in 2005 we had dinner at Amuleto and always remembered how beautiful the property was. We emailed the owner of... More

Fabulous occasion with husband - many times at this extraordinary place. Attaching photos from our last trip. The sheer beauty and tranquility is something that we can't wait to return year after year. The staff is A+ , always there when you need them and disappear when you want privacy. If you're going to zihua, don't miss this rare experience.

We recently returned from our seventh vacation stay at Amuleto in eight years. With each trip, we develop a deeper appreciation of the beauty - surrounding us in nature, especially the spectacular Zihuatanejo Bay view, and the property and setting themselves - serenity, and the pure and total pleasure of doing exactly what we want, when we choose, and in...

My husband and I travel to Mexico about 3 times a year. We prefer small boutique hotels to the large luxury hotels. There are boutique hotels and then again there is Amuleto. Nestled in the hills above the bay this property is "the best place on earth". A beautiful view that changes with the light. At night you can enjoy... More

If you are looking to get away from it all, look no further. The Amuleto is an amazing property, perched on a hillside overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay. Upon arrival, you are greeted with welcome cocktails and homemade guacamole while enjoying amazing views of the ocean and bay – this is definitely a great way to start relaxing! We stayed in Suite...

We stayed at Hotel Amuleto for a week recently. We cannot praise this hotel highly enough! One of our fellow guests had been coming to the hotel twice a year for 10 years and summed it up perfectly saying 'they never miss'! We stayed in the Palapa Suite which has loads of space, a private infinity plunge pool, a lovely... More

This was our first visit to Zihua and we could not decide where to stay. So we spent 3 nights at La Casa Que Canta and 3 nights at Amuleto. Both were outstanding and each had special touches and unique features. Amuleto This hotel sits high up on the mountain and definitely wins the award for best view. This hotel... More
