Villa Mexicana Hotel
Ranked #24 of 77 Hotels in Zihuatanejo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Super hotel on the beach about 15 minutes walk from town of Zihuatenejo. Good food in the restaurant. Friendly staff. Super location. I went at the start of the low season and got excellent rates for the 4 nights I was there. The presence of turtles at night was an added bonus.

Room Tip: Pay extra and get a room with a sea view.

Every November, we head south to Zihuatanejo's Villa Mexicana for a 2 week stay. The strangest thing is we are not the kind of travelers that go back to same place all the time, but this place has converted us. Villa Mexicana is right on the best beach in Zihua, LaRopa, which has a lot of great places to eat and sleep. Villa Mexicana is the only affordable place right on the beach, nothing is seperating you from the ocean and your beach chair. None of this, near the beach, right above the beach, this is right ON the beach! I dont think you can beat this for convenience and price. The view is spectacular looking right on the bay, there is a restaurant and bar and little boutique as well. Food is pretty good although we like to try other places a lot. The staff is like family since everyone has been there for ages. It feels so good to see the same staff every year and follow their lives. We were even invited to one of their weddings! Massages would be the 2nd reason to return here, Benny is the best there is right on the grounds. I try to pace myself and only get a massage every couple days since the price is right and they get better and better. Happy hour is also an important sunset and social event. We have gotten to know so many of the regulars that it is like coming home when we get there!

Room Tip: You have to ask and pay a little extra for an ocean facing room but well worth it and still a bargai...

Villa Mexicana is a small hotel in a great location on Playa Ropa..the staff is great, very accommodating , the rooms are simple, but well maintained ... The pools are small but clean... And the massages are excellent ...

Room Tip: Pool side rooms have lots of traffic walking by all day.. 2nd floor is better in my opinion..

It's only negative is the hard mattress....a small place, motel like...one level, right on the beach and right next to a lovely infinity pool. My vacation location of choice, hands down. Would skip all the fancy resorts for this place. Great staff, restaurant very close and the best cheesy nachos by far. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Nothing fancy...no spa, although there are very reasonably priced massages on the premise. No fitne...

Our fourth visit and the hotel is as wonderful as always. I sure sign of a very good hotel is the staff, and this hotel is able to maintain the same wonder staff year after year. We always get a Welcome Home", as soon as we arrive. The minute you arrive you know you made the right choice of hotels. The grounds, from the check in, to your room and to the beach are constantly manicured.
The arrival at the front desk is a pleasant and warm experience and where you will receive your keys, beach towels and TV remote (if you really want one). There are beach view and garden view rooms, but the rooms are all the same and very comfortable. Either way you are steps from Playa La Ropa the best beach in the area.
WiFi is included at no additional charge and the signal is pretty good.
Three different pools, an infinity pool large enough for many people, a medium size pool for the taller children and another medium size pool where the smaller children can stand up and enjoy the warm water.
The ocean and beach are clean and warm. The waves are just big enough to enjoy. Be sure to visit the restaurant as the menu is not a tourist trap menu, instead the very good meals are very reasonably priced. Happy hour runs from 5:00 PM through to 7:00 PM daily with two for one drinks, served to you right on the beach.
Any staff member in contact with the public is fluent in American and Spanish languages. If you drove here, the parking lot is directly across the street. If you arrived by taxi, you will be delivered right to the front desk area, help is available to bring items to your room.
All in all you will be very pleased with your stay here and will return.

Villa Mexicana offers a great experience for people who enjoy a quiet beach hotel. We found most of the guests friendly, and all of the staff outstanding. This year - and last year - we found part of our stay was spoiled somewhat by a group of extended family (last year) and friends (this year). Some people are better of going to Ixtapa, and booking into an all-inclusive, where they can yell back and forth, and party all the time.
Villa Mexicana is small enough that when those types of people show up, and show no respect for the other guests who prefer a more peaceful experience, they can ruin some of the precious holiday time for the rest of us
.
By all means, if you want to enjoy a great beach experience, come to the Villa Mexicana.

If you want to have a noisy family reunion, or just have drunken, noisy parties, go somewhere else!

Room Tip: Beach view rooms cost an extra $20. Most of the non-beach front rooms are quieter.
