Having traveled many places in the world and having stayed in some of the most highly rated resorts and hotels in the world I have to say that my experience here was nothing short of outstanding! The hotel is older and the rooms are on themselves nothing exceptional but very functional with many features we all consider to be comforting when we travel. We stayed in Room 9 on reception level with Carola. Our room had 2 double beds, small refrigerator freezer in room, jacuzzi, 2 lounge chairs, table and chairs and hammock on balcony, more storage space than you needed, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, clothes line in shower, hot water, good water pressure, safe, double sinks in bathroom and the best view in Zihua you could imagine. All of the staff was amazing, with special thanks to Alexander and Carlos in reception. The Restaurant El Bistro bartender Alfonzo was above and beyond exceptions for the whole week opening the pool bar up for us whenever we went to the pool (we were in off season). Now about the steps, they are a bit of exercise but kept me from gaining weight. But they are doable as we were two 60 year old guys here for fishing. The fishing was bad as we had a Hurricane form off the coast and the Port was closed while we were there due to high waves. This is definitely the place to stay in Zihua for the money. If you need anything just ask and they had a great exchange rate for dollars if you needed pesos currently 12 pesos for a dollar. We also had breakfast included in with our $139.00 room rate which was worth $10 US each and fantastic. They give you a little menu to choose from but its basically whatever you want.
