We went for lunch to restaurant Luilui (or something close to it) and Tony provided wonderful and warm service throughout our stay. Great waiter!!! I ordered a shrimp cocktail and my dad ordered coconut shrimp. The coconut shrimp were DELICIOUS. But instead of my shrimp cocktail, I was given shrimp tacos. I didn't want to make a big deal of...

The island is pretty much 2 beaches - 1 is for swimming (where the boat lands) and 2 is for snorkeling (walk right across through the restaurants). We went to 2, picked ay of the restaurants, that give you a base for your stuff and you go: We rented snorkel gear (they all rent it and they are all about... More

We spent the day there but the beach is on such an angle its hard to get comfortable in your chair without sliding out, the beach is a bit rocky. We still had fun but don't set the expectations too high.

We spend the day here swimming and relaxing . The water was clear but would advise water shoes for the snokling beach. This beach has lots of fish to see , though not especially colourful , kids would still find it interesting. The food offered at most beach restaurants was grilled and fresh. The elaborately decorated Pin Coladas not to... More

I love the island. One side has calm waters, the other snorkeling delights! Getting there is half the fun in the little boats. A treat for everyone not to be missed

Beautiful island, had a great time. But also got ripped off paying almost 1000 pesos for a fish. Our lunch was included in the price for the tour. My husband upgraded his lunch but did not ask what the difference in price was. This so far was the most expensive experience we had here in Zihua. My tip, don't pay... More

The island was fine, the food was fine. the snorkeling with a guide was great, but we got ripped off by the waiter. We had paid for the whole day beforehand at the hotel, but when it was time to go the waiter said we owed $30.00 each for the food. When we saw our tour guide the next day,... More
