“Simple Rooms, Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The hotel is located on one end of Playa Madera (great beach for kids), In Colonia La Madera on a super cute street with plenty of restaurants near by and a short walk to the town center. The beach is easily accessible by a few stairs from the hotel grounds. There are two parts to the hotel, the ocean side and the garden side across the street with the lobby, a restaurant serving breakfast/lunch and a pool.

Stayed on the ocean side, beautiful gardens, pool and a bar (great happy hour). Lots of flowers, grass, and palm trees. There are plenty of chairs and lounge chairs, even more a step down towards the beach. Stayed in La Casita (2 bedroom/bath, living room, full kitchen) for a week, the unit was simple and did the trick. The price was really affordable and too good to pass up.

One great part about the hotel was the other guests. They were super friendly and social (some have been staying there every year for the past 20 years!), great to chat up during happy hour. It made it feel very homey.

Just got back from 5 days in Zihuatanejo. Fell in love with the town. This hotel is 10 minutes walk from the City Center and the last hotel on the South end before you have to climb the hill. It is located on both sides of the road. We stayed in a room on the 'other' side of the street, so we had to cross the street in order to get to the beach. Very quiet street, so no big deal. Both sides have a pool. There are plenty of lounges on the lawn above the beach, overlooking the water. The water is fairly shallow for a long ways out. Lots of little kids playing in the water. Beautiful cove with colorful buildings all around. Plenty of sailboats anchored farther out.
I walked to the fish market on the beach every morning. Just a hive of activity at 8 in the morning. Lots of restaurants close by including a nice restaurant in the hotel for breakfast and lunch where everything is made from scratch. Make sure you go to the Italian restaurant at the hotel next door. Really excellent food. The Bistro down the beach is nice as well, but pricier. 30 pesos to take the taxi into town if you don't want to walk.
It always blows me away how many taxis and buses there are in Mexico, and cheap.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

Ideal for budget traveler. Best location in Zihua. Right on the far end of the beach within walking distance to the town via a well lit and safe path along the ocean. Try to get the upper floor ocean view rooms. Extremely quiet and clean. Did not eat there but heard from local ex-pats that it was very good. Very close to our favorite restaurant Casa Elvira.

This was a well situated hotel that I wouldn't hesitate in recommending. It is well located between downtown Zihua and Playa La Ropa. It's a 1 minute walk to La Madera beach. The rooms are clean and quiet. We had a beautiful ocean view upgrade!

What was left wanting at this place was the details. Ten years ago, I might have been excited to just have air conditioned room, but now...I'm looking for a little more. My husband complained of poor sleep due to a thin and hard mattress. If you fly all the way to Mexico, you gotta sleep well. We switched to a hotel down the road which was significantly more expensive but allowed him the rest he deserved for a few more days of a wonderful vacation.

We spent 2 weeks in the Jr. Suite, ocean view and were extremely pleased. We had 2 separate bedrooms with bathrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room. The staff were extremely helpful, correcting any problems that we had (extra bed in 2nd bedroom, cooking pot for kitchen). The room, pool & grounds were very clean. Rock free beach, good swimming area, 10 minute easy walk to town along rock walkway along ocean. This area is very quiet and a breath taking view of the bay and the fishing boats out every morning. Fresh fish market 10 minutes away. The beds were comfortable, air condition in both bedrooms. We would go back.

Room Tip: Book a room on the ocean view side as compared to the garden view, well worth extra cost.

Having made 10 trips now to both relax and work in Zihua, and sampled a number of properties around the bay, I have ended up at this place a half dozen times. The main reason is the Madera Neighborhood location is the perfect site between downtown and Playa La Ropa. Good amenities, nice pool, quiet and secure enough, never over-crowded at the times I visit. Nice helpful staff. Excellent on-site cafe. They have 2 apartment units. The one that I have shared with a group is large with a nice kitchen next to the pool. It is showing its age and was quite 'buggy' last visit, but if they keep the price down, it's still worth it.
I'll likely return.

Room Tip: Check out the policy and availability of the Wi-Fi as well as total charges when signing in.

Great location facilities are good and the staff very helpful and pleasant. I can see why people keep returning to this little gem with its fantastic views and location right on the beach with a short walk into town and various good restaurants close by. Irma is always on hand to help with any information. We were blown away by the creations made with the towels and flowers in the room, by the maid. Moses will look after you at the bar and Jose in the restaurant. Food was really enjoyable and well presented (try the club sandwich and fries). Rooms are really spacious and spotlessly clean and the fridge is really useful. Gardens lovely and well kept. We spent our first night in a garden view room which was very nice but then managed to get an ocean view room for the rest of our stay which was superb.
