My husband,adult daughter,and I just returned from a dreamy trip to Zihuatanejo,while staying at Villa Guadelupe. Prior to our arrival, I had ironed out some special requests and trip details with the ever-gracious Daniel.Upon arrival and during our stay, all requests were fulfilled.
We love the property as it is very understated...only 3 suites(plus a bonus "nanny" room) which cannot be seen from the street(where Espuma Restaurant is).The suites are staggered down the hill,with breath-taking views of Zihuatanejo Bay and the ocean beyond.We stayed in Lilia Candelaria,the biggest,which was the closest to the top and was 67 steps down,thus giving you an idea of the incline. Our daughter stayed in Maria de Lourdes,the suite closest to the water,which is on the small side but has 2 very private terraces.Others are correct...the sound of the crashing waves is very prevalent,but we loved it.
Breakfast and taxes are included in the fare,which is a BIG bonus. The breakfast is served on the private patio(exclusive to the 3 suites)again overlooking the magnificent bay, fishing pier and nearby beach. Fresh fruit, yogurt,granola,fresh breads and delicious coffee along with freshly squeezed OJ. Upon returning to our suites at the end of the day, our beds were adorned with whimsical designs made from fresh bourgainvilla petals. I'll reveal no more,other than to say that I wanted to take the staff home with me. Dante was wonderful from early morning to late afternoon,and always accomodating in his charming way. Audi,the housekeeper,always with a smile,took care of our rooms including those wonderful floral designs.Daniel, as mentioned previously,oversaw everything and did a fantastic job.
As a family,it's not easy to get away at the same time so having our vacation worry-free was such a plus. The hotel is wonderful and while situated on the water,there is no beach. It is a short walk to Playa de Ropa,but a steep climb upon return. Danielle arranged for us to spend one day at nearby Las Palmas resort, which was wonderful. All in all, our trip was a memorable one.
