“Lovely Innkeepers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We had a really nice time at Regalo del Mar which was a last minute booking when our reservation at Tres Mujeres got forgotten about! The beach is really wonderful for long walks. The rooms are traditional open palapa-style which means no screens/windows for those sensitive to insects and noise. However, we slept so well because of the sounds of the roaring surf. A short distance away is Present Moment Yoga Resort which accepts non-guests at a rate of $14 per class. Present Moment has a bar/restaurant that we ate at frequently because it has great food, service and atmosphere. Troncones is easily accessible form Ixtapa/Zihua by taxi. Once there, a car is not necessary.
The best part of Regalo is the personal service provided by Innkeepers and staff.

We just spent 8 days at Regalo del Mar and it exceeded our expectations in every aspect. The grounds and buildings of this property are harmoniously and tastefully designed. It's a calming setting right off the beach where the sound of the waves mingles with the sound of exotic birds and crickets. Although it was high season the beach was empty, sometimes we would see a few people or a couple of horses coming by. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet and kept impeccably clean. Our hosts Bev and Cam were extremely helpful and always ready for interesting conversations. Their property manager Jose and his wife Natty, supported by a gardener kept the whole place in excellent shape. Note: you can walk to several restaurants nearby but for more variety and flexibility we rented bikes and recommend that or a rental car.
We highly recommend the place to anybody who does not want be be squeezed like a sardine on the beach among hundreds of other tourists. We are thinking we should come back with our children and grandchild to have a family vacation at Regalo del Mar.

We're just back from our return visit to Regalo del Mar in Troncones, Mexico and feel (if possible) even happier! The facility had improved--a gorgeous slab of marble for the back wall of our shower and a delightful outdoor bathroom for added convenience--not to mention the addition of a second swinging bed--no more fights! We saw guests from last year and met new ones, all interesting and fun. The hosts are sensational, we felt like we were coming home. We rented a car this year which is a great idea and we took the eco kayak tour, also delightful. Obviously we were happy and can't wait for next year's trip!!!

Room Tip: We love the casita redondo, but it all depends on your budget and group size.

Casa Grande at Regalo del Mar is a piece of paradise. That and the hosts, Cam and Beverly, make this place very special for anyone who wants an oceanfront experience that is at the top of our list and we've been to many. The furnishings are exquisitely beautiful, comfortable and this is an out of the way retreat where you can rest, renew and regenerate. The sound of the ocean, the weather and the amenities are perfect for us. Good restaurants are nearby.

Room Tip: Casa Grande in front of pool and ocean

Just returned from another marvelous stay at Regalo del Mar in Troncones. Xtapa and Zihuatanejo around the corner on a brand new highway.

A delightful combination of stunning views, breathtaking casitas and warm hospitalitly. Regalo is a unique combination. Gracious hosts, an international clientele, and opportunities to mingle or relax on the beach in solitude. Dining is also very special. Each casita has a separate fridge, but cooking is done communally. Meals are thus either individual creations or combined opportunities. And always a night out at local eateries.
The highlight this visit was sleeping under the stars in a king sized bed covered by a casita with the waves meters away. Did I say that the bed was really a supersize swinging affair.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELER.

Room Tip: All are spectacular, but perhaps those nearest pool are my favorite.

We spent a week at Regalo Del Mar this January as part of our third visit to the Zihua area. This was by far our best visit including a very relaxing week at Troncones Beach featuring our stay at Regalo Del Mar. We loved loved the Casa Grande suite with its open air living space - we could hear the crash of the surf at night and enjoyed the ocean breezes. Amazing sunsets and long walks on the beach with many places to stop in for snacks or drinks. We enjoyed local restaurants including Manzanillo Bay Inn, Eden, Troncones Bay Inn, Majuaha Palms, Cafe del Sol, Roberto's and our special favorite - Rufys for chicken mole and stuffed poblano peppers. Our hosts cam, bev, wayne and jackie and family and the staff at Regalo Del Mar Jose and Natty were amazing - we felt right at home and we had a memorable week. Another highlight was our fishing trip with Benito from Majahua Palms. Unforgettable. We will return next yea!

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful here.

We weren't sure what to expect but we could not have been happier. The setting was incredible, the atmosphere lovely, the other guests delightful and the hosts (and their siblings!) were so much fun! I wish we had rented a car so we could get around more easily, but that didn't stop us. We will definitely be going back.
