4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I loved the yoga class and I had a massage which was amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend you get a room that is not above the kitchen (it was boiling hot in the room already). The staff could use some service training as we didnt get service in the pool area or on the beach.. and that´s a must. Make... More

I heard so many stories about the wonderful paradise of Zipolite but never got a chance to go; finally this year I made it there and before the trip I was a little wary as I was wondering if the place would really stand to its reputation. We were a group of four and when researching about places to stay... More

We found this on the internet, lucky us! It was truly pure delight. We kept finding new things about it we loved. We could literally roll out of bed onto the beach or fall asleep under the full moon, clear sky & nearly bugless night, on one of their beach beds, lit by candle light, near the huge rock they...

We loved the location, and the cabanas were all gorgeous. Loved the laid back vibe and the front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. There was a bit of a mix-up with our room (we had booked a room with 2 beds - our only requirement since we were travelling with our child, but there was a double booking... More

This is comfortable and well run hotel. Our room had everything we could hope for - a large balcony with hammock and daybed, air-conditioning or fan, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and even hot water which is not that common in this area. They also take VISA which is also unusual. We booked a garden room by the pool which was... More

Fantastic spot tucked away in the corner of the beautiful Zipolite beach, perpetually underscored with the sound of crashing waves. Wide range of room types to choose from based on your travel preference, from small huts to the two-story penthouse. I stayed in cabana 19, which is currently the only room with air conditioning, and has a private balcony with... More

This place has fantastic food & drinks, I had a dreamy smoothie....and my husband had a margarita....and also mango margarita. Seemed like they had the best food in all of Mexico for artisanal quality, and having a bit of high end flare. You can be drinking your drink sitting on the beach, and jump into the water 10 feet away.... More

A much slower vibe than Huatulco or Puerto Escondido. This is the best hotel On Zipolite beach by far. Awesome yoga classes and massages, super nice staff, great food, and a secluded little cove at the end of the beach. Wide variety of rooms, but you're going to pay more here than anywhere else in Zipolite. That said, it's money... More

In my opinion the first choice in this area. Very nice Bungalows and rooms by the beach great service and a very very good restaurant and a nice spa with a really quiet pool side. I would go there everytime again.

Myself and my husband stayed for 6 nights and had the most incredible time. The staff are friendly, laid back and helpful. The accommodation is comfortable, well thought out and fantastically located, and the food is delicious. The views are mesmerising and in the evenings the restaurant looks spectacular (with great music). We'll definitely pay this place another visit! Gracias... More
