Stayed April 30th thru May 7th. Arrived about 1500 hours. Room was ready, except we were booked into the wrong room. We had booked the jacuzzi suite thru Expedia. They booked us into another suite. They had someone else booked into our room. The safe in the room was not working, broken keys. After about an hour, and negotiating a... More

We felt this hotel was ideally situated, right on Playa La Madera, which is excellent for swimming. Close enough to town to walk to yet was quiet in the evenings, just the sound of the gentle waves breaking on the beach. We utilized the outdoor kitchen for breakfast and lunches, so nice to sit on your terrace eating your breakfast... More

Nice locally run hotel on the beach. Very small, about ten rooms. Very clean and well maintained. They have about six palapas on the beach. The staff was great and worked very hard, thanks Elizabeth and Luis.

Sal was always available and ensured we were taken care of. We felt truly welcomed and would recommend this bungalow to others for sure. The location is also excellent and within an easy walking distance... More

We chose this hotel through Trip Advisor the comments really helped! Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo seem best kept secret we had not heard of Ixtapa at all. The hotel is not a chain hotel it is a great value small quaint hotel with beach front. It allows for tourist to appreciate the beach and the culture. The staff is friendly and are bilingual....
