“Clean 2.5 star hotel, lovely beach”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

We spent 2 weeks in the Jr. Suite, ocean view and were extremely pleased. We had 2 separate bedrooms with bathrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room. The staff were extremely helpful, correcting any problems that we had (extra bed in 2nd bedroom, cooking pot for kitchen). The room, pool & grounds were very clean. Rock free beach, good swimming area, 10 minute easy walk to town along rock walkway along ocean. This area is very quiet and a breath taking view of the bay and the fishing boats out every morning. Fresh fish market 10 minutes away. The beds were comfortable, air condition in both bedrooms. We would go back.

Room Tip: Book a room on the ocean view side as compared to the garden view, well worth extra cost.

Having made 10 trips now to both relax and work in Zihua, and sampled a number of properties around the bay, I have ended up at this place a half dozen times. The main reason is the Madera Neighborhood location is the perfect site between downtown and Playa La Ropa. Good amenities, nice pool, quiet and secure enough, never over-crowded at the times I visit. Nice helpful staff. Excellent on-site cafe. They have 2 apartment units. The one that I have shared with a group is large with a nice kitchen next to the pool. It is showing its age and was quite 'buggy' last visit, but if they keep the price down, it's still worth it.
I'll likely return.

Room Tip: Check out the policy and availability of the Wi-Fi as well as total charges when signing in.

Great location facilities are good and the staff very helpful and pleasant. I can see why people keep returning to this little gem with its fantastic views and location right on the beach with a short walk into town and various good restaurants close by. Irma is always on hand to help with any information. We were blown away by the creations made with the towels and flowers in the room, by the maid. Moses will look after you at the bar and Jose in the restaurant. Food was really enjoyable and well presented (try the club sandwich and fries). Rooms are really spacious and spotlessly clean and the fridge is really useful. Gardens lovely and well kept. We spent our first night in a garden view room which was very nice but then managed to get an ocean view room for the rest of our stay which was superb.

Thanks so much to the wonderful staff at Miramar for making my stay post-superbowl extra special.Everything from the carefully prepared room to the convenient kitchen hours make this a real hidden gem. Moses at poolside will make sure the 2for1's are well fortified and flowing and Jose in the cafe takes a lot of pride in his level of service. You can't get a better location for access to Zihua's best beaches and town is only a 10 minute walk away. If you're looking for crowds and lots of noise this isn't the place for you. Next time I believe I'll request a lower floor room as they are cooler for sure...but the A/C worked fine regardless. Also had the pleasure of meeting some of the nicest people, some of whom had been coming to Zihua, and this hotel, for decades. This place was a big improvement over my lodging 19 years ago and I had to take stock of my good fortune!! See you all next year.

Room Tip: Lower floors probably cooler.

This hotel is beautiful, its layed out nicely and has easy beach access as well as pools. All of that got quicly forgotten when we layed down on the beds our first nice in Zihua after flying almost 24 hours and they were hard as rock. The sheets were plastic and made noise every time anyone moved.
The balcony looked over the pool and directly into the room across the pool. With the 2 days we were there I saw atleast 3 people stark naked in there rooms just by stepping out onto our balcony. We were planning on staying a week and ended up leaveing early when a gentlman across the pool began playing is recorder or oboe at 5:30am. When we called to complain to the front desk they asked what we would like them to do? Because he was also a paying guest. This caused us to find another (and cheaper) place to stay!

As a family with two kids of 11 and 8, we enjoyed our stay immensely. We enjoyed the fact that his hotel is a typical Mexican family hotel and no international chain...The staff was very friendly and the kids enjoyed the pool and the beach, which is right at the end of the garden. It is worthwile booking a room with a view to the sea. They are better and the view is fantastic. We slept great and spent the days at the beach or in the pool. The pool is not huge, but big enough. The hotel is quiet and yet it is situated within walking distance of the center of Zihuatanejo. We highly recommend to take a small boat/water taxi from the center of Zihuatanejo to the beach Playa Las Gatas. Here you have the possibility of doing snorkling - and eating fresh fish right at the water front...

The cost of this hotel and cost of food and drinks is not worth it. There are a lot of other hotels in great location in Zhiua that are better value. They got the dates wrong and had us booked in one day sooner than we had previously arranged....they queried me about this upon check in...wondering why i'm a day late...i had printed off the email confirmation and proved the correct dates. This all seemed fine until I got home and checked my visa bill and found that they charged me for one extra nights stay!! Also the rooms are a dump...the only thing this hotel has going for it is location and a pleasant outdoor space with great beach access.
