My wife and I spent the month of Febuary in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. We stayed the entire vacation at Hotel JB, only a three minute walk to beautiful LaRopa beach, the jewel of the Pacific. The owner and staff of the hotel were very polite and on top of everything. I can truly recommend this hotel to anyone that decides to stay in Zihuatanejo. Frank and Anita Sears, Lake Placid , NY .

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool, Just select the one for the amount of people in your party.

This hotel while relatively cheap, $70.00 a night plus money transfer fees and a tip, was a very bad experience. No one at the hotel spoke any english and it was NOT a clean hotel by any means. I am a single male, age 60 and have stayed at many hotels in my life. This one was definetly the WORST. At the time of my booking this place,they did not accept any credit cards which should have been a warning to me. I went on line and looked at the hotel and from the pictures it looked fine, but it certainly was not. I wired the money for my room to the hotel 5 months in advance. When I got ready to leave they tried to get me to pay for the room again, and even threatened to call the police on me. After 30 minutes of haggiling and a few phone calls they finally let me go. Pay a few dollars more and go anywhere but this place. A VERY UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE. By the way I have never before wrote a review on anythingbefore, so that should tell anyone reading this how truly terrible it was. Best of luck to anyone reading this.

  • Liked — The Price
  • Disliked — Dirty and, No one spoke ANY English, and they tried to have me pay twice for the room

We booked this hotel because we required a 2 bedroom with kitchenette and wanted to be near Playa La Ropa . Each bedroom had an air-conditioner with king size bed . There were no closets or drawers for storing clothing . There is one bathroom which had plenty of hot water once it got there . The living room area came with a chair and sofabed , both of which were filthy . The kitchen came with a dirty coffee maker , a unclean set of dishes and various pots and pans . The refridgerator had been left unplugged with the door closed and no baking soda to absorb the odours . Despite our de-odourizing attempts , the entire unit reeked of some mysterious odour which still persisted 3 days later when we checked out . One bedroom was quiet and the other required earplugs to deaden the noise from the compressor located right outside the window and the braying donkey from across the road . We would not have continued our stay in this unit had it not been Christmas week and there was not a single unit to be had anywhere . This hotel is located on the La Ropa Road , about 3 blocks off the beach . There is onsite parking & a small pool but no restaurant , internet access or vending machines . The owner accepts only cash as payment .

  • Liked — Security of premises
  • Disliked — Uncleanliness of our suite , lack of services
