This is a wonderful sandy beach. Restaurants and shops outline it. Very quiet and enjoyable. Different feel from Las Gatas same concept but the swimming is much more enjoyable as there is no coral to contend with. It is also a wider beach area. GORGEOUS.

I found this to be very overpriced, Too many Vendors bugging you. Which makes your stay uncomfortable always saying "No Gracias" only to have them come back 20 minutes later throughout your stay.

Doesn't get much better for an early November beach to relax on. The protect Zihuatanejo Bay calms the breakers making it ideal for swimming with no undertow. Typically the ocean water is warm enough to spend the day in the water. Several hotels and restaurants line the 1 Km beach making your beach day complete. Early November also avoids the... More

Couple of local restaurants. Some nice smaller hotels. Great white sand. Good swimming. Many beach massage huts. Enjoyable place.

We stayed at the Viceroy Hotel and woke up to this beach every morning. Although it doesn't have white sand and tourquiose waters, it is very clean and welcoming. I grew up on the East coast of South Florida and I have been to many beaches around the world. I find this one comforting and welcoming.

I stayed on a hillside hotel and walked down to the beach right before sunrise. The walk from one end of the beach to the other was refreshing. At both ends of the beach I enjoyed the warm ocean water! I do not recommend the hours of 10am-3pm even if you have sunscreen. The sun in this region is deceptively... More

Soft sand, gentle winds, great waves and crystal clear water. Take all of these things and add some nice beachside bars and restaurants and you have Playa la Ropa. We stayed at the Embarc and spent the whole week on this beach Very safe and low key. Oh and the sand is really nice!

A perfect cove with clear water and a gentle surf. The sand is clean and the nights are cool and breezy.
