The location of this property was very close to the beach which was great. There is also a small pool where you can mingle the the others guests of this quaint hotel. This is a small property with 6 rooms. The rooms are somewhat close and you can hear your neighbors talking at times during the day. It is very... More

I arrived with my father January 10th, let me start with the fact I am the "obnoxious inconsiderate guest" the review below is talking about. Our room was clean as usual and the grounds impeccably clean. Two weeks later my dad went home and my wife showed up for the last four weeks. Proximity of the rooms is close and... More

Thanks to the Owner Noah, who found us wandering around the streets in town looking for a great Hotel, we found this little gem right on Playa La Ropa. The price was good, you get basically your own condo with a yard, your own kitchen, and a perfectly kept room. You could easily stay here for a week and never... More

We really enjoyed our stay at El Arca. Noe was amazing, so helpful and informative. Great location, very close to La Ropa. Small pool and lovely flowers and aspect. We loved our open air kitchen and deck. Tina kept our room spotless and we will definitely return.

As an airline pilot that flies into ZIH during the winter months, I met Noe, the owner of Villa El Arca. Villa El Arca is a small resort, 6 units, that provides a great atmosphere for families. Noe is a gracious host, a life-long resident of ZIH and will make sure your visit to ZIH is memorable. YuYu, Villa El... More

My wife and I stayed with Noe in January last year for three weeks. I can't say how much I enjoyed staying at villa el arca!!! Noe (owner) came over one night with his wife and grilled some very appetizing arrachara steak and lobster. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, the grounds beam with the same... More
