I need advice on a great family resort/hotel in ziha. Not much interested in AI's. Great beach and great pool important.

If you don't mind a no-frills experience, give the Sotavento Hotel a look. It's dated, but clean, comfortable, convenient, and inexpensive. We've lived in Mex City for four years now, have traveled to Zihua many times, and always stay at the Sotavento. Our kids (ages 11, 10, and 6) love the place and are on first name basis with many of the staff. The pool is smallish but adequate. The beach is wonderful - great sand and calm waves. There is a good spot to snorkle right in front of the hotel. The hotel restaurant isn't great but there are some good places right on the beach (Playa La Ropa). Town is a short drive or taxi ride away. It's one of our family's favorite get-aways.

We just stayed at the Villas Mexicana and there were lots of families staying there. The hotel wasn't fancy, but very clean and perfect for our needs. The beach (Playa La Ropa) is beautiful and great for kids to play in the sand and water. The pool isn't very big, but the water was warm seemed to be popular for the kids to play in when they weren't on the beach. I think they also have a family-style room. E-mail Judy at traveljudy@hotmail.com if want....she will be able to answer any questions you might have.
