We had the pleasure of spending one week at the Dorado Pacifico at the end of November, for me it was a return visit after an absence of 25 years! I loved it then when it was almost new and loved it just as much this time despite the fact the hotel shows signs of aging. However, it is being updated gradually. The exterior has been repainted and the room we were given was great. The food in the 3 restaurants is wonderful and the service from every area of the hotel is outstanding. It is located in the middle of a wonderful stretch of beach which was safe for swimming when we were there, at times it can be too rough. Righ across the street is a quaint area full of good restaurants and shops. The local bus in front of the hotel will take you anywhere for less than a dollar from the Marina to Zihuatanejo.
So if you are looking for an American style hotel with all the bells and whistles, this is not for you. But if you want a smaller hotel with charm and the warm, Mexican hospitality, you will enjoy the Dorado Pacifico.
