A very beautiful & convenient location with immaculate large rooms. the deck was large and brightly tiled and looked down (40 steps) on the beautiful sandy beach with large surf rolling in. great place to swim and little eating places right on the sand. Sra Eva was very friendly as well as her staff and we would certainly book there...

I am a long stay here, it has been 2 mos so far but they do dailies also. The location is right on the beach at playa la madera, a nice quiet, small beach within walking distance to downtown via a beach side cement walkway. Everything is within walking distance. The patios are huge with perfect views of the bay....

We loved our stay at Bungalows Sotelo. The owner and staff were very friendly, the rooms are basic but clean. #10 is the best room on Playa la Madera....your own private terrace right on the beach....lovely and very convenient to the beach activities.

We spent 10 days at Bungalows Sotelo in Feb 2010. For $160/night we expect much more, especially after having seen what's available for what price in the neighboring accomodations. The positives first: Sotelo is located directly on Madera Beach and the view from the terraces is spectacular. But that's about it. Our biggest gripes are: a) the uncaring attitude and...

We love this place, set against a hillside above a small quiet beach with 3 restaurants, one superb and one casual and fun. Our room, simple but roomy and comfortable, was cleaned daily. Our terrace overlooked the beach and bay. Problems were minimal. Yes, the hot water didn't always work well, there was rust on some pipes, the A/C was...

My family and I spent December 26, 2009 - January 1, 2010 in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. We stayed at Bungalows Sotelo. We were well pleased with the place. Plenty of room. Right on the beach. Short walk to the market and places to eat. The staff of Sotelo helped us with anything we wanted to do. We went snorkeling, para-sailing, deep...

We stayed in #10 Bungalow Sotelo for 10 days in January 2010. Our unit was right on the beach and we really enjoyed sitting out on our patio surrounded by happy Mexican families, spending a day at the beach. We swam right out front at Playa la Maderna and often walked to Playa la Ropa, the next beach over (more...

They advertised air conditioning, microwave, TV, etc. The room had it all, but nothing worked! Everything was so dirty we had to cover the furniture with sheets. Water from the deck above came directly into the kitchen. The shower didn't have hot water and turned the bathroom into a swamp. It is the worst place we ever stayed.

My boyfriend and I were booked for 7 nites at these bungalows, my 3rd trip to Zihua. We ran into problems as soon as we arrived. The desk clerk couldn't find our room key -- the room was found unlocked anyway. The room was unacceptable so we asked to see another. We were offered another which seemed perfect, large w/a...
