I absolutely loved this place! The team are great.. They cook wonderful, fresh food all day long which was simply delicious. I also loved that there are plenty of different places and styles of seating to use; deckchairs, sofas, covered palapas on the beach and many more. Lovely room and the dogs absolutely loved the freedom of being right on... More

I was a little skeptical as I would be driving alone from Mexico City, but I made a wonderful choice!! I rented the Samoa bungalow on the beach, I stayed there with my 2 dogs and the 3 of us had an exquisite time! Connie, as Gilda was on vacation, was wonderful and warm! Mauricio and Esther, the two people... More

Restaurant was good, room (right on the beach) was well built, tasteful, and well-appointed (reading lamps, coffee pot, etc). But the best feature is the service and kindness of the staff and the owner. They helped us find our lost dog and brokered his return.

The staff is friendly, especially the owner. Breakfast and dinner were very good. There are no good restaurants or bars in the area. But if you search for a place where you can walk down the beach, visit the laguna and spend a quiet evening, you are right here. Unfortunately, you can not swim at the beach. The waves are... More

Thank you John for your critique. Certainly we try to please our guests as much as possible. As you came very soon after the 2 hurricanes that brought so much rain to our region everything was still a bit humid and so the handcarved wooden furniture had a smell of damp wood mixed with lineoil.

We were aware when we booked this hotel that it was more expensive than the other Pie de la cuesta accommodation options, but assumed from the price, photos and reviews that it would be worth it. It was not. A place can be basic and shabby, but charming if it is cheap. However, the prices at Gilda are comparable to... More

I am very sorry that you did not like your stay . As you booked the most expensive room with kitchen , the idea is that people cook their own food. Our other rooms are much less expensive. Taxis some times come from Acapulco to pick you up, that is why prices vary so much . Wish you the best... More
