First of all let me say that we arrived at Villa Vera only one week after Hurricane Manuel devastated a lot of the western coast of Mexico. Although the Zihuatanejo area was not affected as much as other areas there was evidence of damage as well as much evidence of how hard the Mexican people were working to repair the area.
The resort itself is quite nice. We were looking for a place to relax and Villa Vera really fit the bill. The staff was incredibly helpful. Every meal was excellent. The view of the bay and town is fantastic. There were only 6 couples staying at the hotel during the time we were there. It was almost like having the hotel to ourselves on many occasions. Although we got to meet and chat with most everyone there, it was not uncommon to be the only ones in the restaurant, bar or pool. We were most pleasantly surprised to see that the service remained impeccable, which often is not the case in many places when occupancy rate is low.
As has been well documented, the walk into town is short and easy downhill. Not so easy up hill and 44 steps back. We opted for a 40 peso taxi back.
If you are looking for glitz and proximity to the beach you are probably better going to Ixtapa. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and use as a base to explore this beautiful area, the Villa Vera is an excellent choice ... I would not recommend with children though.
