Beautiful view of Zihuatanejo Bay, including La Ropa and La Madera from this restaurant. They also have 3 hotel rooms, our waiter agreed to show us one. They are beautiful, with a 2 person hot tub on the patio along with the amazing view. Drinks are good, you have to spend 150 pesos a person to... read more

This restaurant is located up the hillside on La Ropa beach and has the most wonderful view of the bay. Food was good but a bit pricey. Service was excellent, but the view was by far my favorite part overlooking the whole bay of Zihautanejo.

The restaurant sits high above Zihuatanejo bay and Playa la Ropa so the view is fantastic. The food is very good. If you are in a group watch the bill, not for over charging, for confusion. This is the second year in a row we have dined there and both times they have given us our friends bill. This is... More

This was not our first to to La Escollera but we always enjoy being able to play in the pool, sit in their nice lounge chairs and have a delicious lunch all while enjoying the amazing view. Please note that they don't open until 1:00 p.m. even though you can get in and sit by the pool.

Being a long time visitor of Zihautanejo and Ixtapa, when I became engaged in 2012 I knew I wanted to get married there. It took me a long time to find the perfect location, but when I came across La Escollera and I saw the stunning view, I knew I wanted our reception there. Celine is a perfect and gracious... More

We arrived at noon and was met by Celine who proceeded to take us on a tour of her animal sanctuary. She has a collection of chickens, turkeys, ducks, snakes, insects, hogs and much more. She was very knowledgeable about them. The tour lasts about an hour. Then we went to the attached restaurant. There is a pool on the... More

We arrived a little early as we couldn't find the hours of operation on their website, but Manuel was gracious and courteous to us and allowed us to swim in the pool while we waited for them to officially open for the day. This restaurant has a beautiful location and infinity pool to enjoy. We swam, drank and ate for... More

We only had a cold drink at the restaurant after our guided tour (in English) but loved the gorgeous view. The food prices a a bit steep but as would be expected in that location. The Bio Park is shaping up and offers some very interesting looks at local flora and fauna. Our guide, owner Celine, was delightful -- enthusiastic,... More

We visited the Bio Park with hopes of having some lunch then seeing some animals. The website indicated that the park opened at 9 am. It also indicated that food and drink was available. My wife and arrived at 11 am (the time their website said a tour would take place) and there was no food or drinks and, in... More
