If you want a laid back relaxing sort of a vacation resort, this is it!
The villas are comfortable, with fully equipped kitchens. THe pool is beautiful. The lush tropical foliage provides cool shade but there is ample space for sun-worshipers.
Villas del Palmar really offers great value. The area is quiet but only a few minutes from the best beach in zihua/Ixtapa. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance (a great pizza restaurant next door) but a bus stop or a taxi right out the front door. My wife and I walked into town almost every day (about 30 or 40 minutes).
Other reviewers mentioned Ruben. Ruben Gonzales and his wife Yvonne are great hosts. Ruben is around every day to make sure you have a good time. His suggestions about restaurants and places to go were terrific. Real Mexican food that we would not have found by ourselves. He even took us to some of these places.
I've already booked our villa for next year.
