“Casa Don Francisco was everything we had hoped for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2010

We stayed at Casa Don Francisco on March 13 for 6 nights and were very happy with our choice. Our room was La Langosta with an amazing view and a very nice patio on which to sit and enjoy it. The bed was very comfortable, room spacious and clean and we really loved the bathroom, especially the shower with big screen windows overlooking the bay.
There were a lot of stairs up to our room (72) BUT I welcomed them as I needed to work off all the great food we ate while in Zihua. The service provided was exceptional. Lorena is wonderful and so willing to help with anything, and Erica as well. Breakfast was very, very good. I would definitely stay here again!!!

The Hotel Casa Don Francisco is a gem. So friendly. So immaculate! Erica and Lorena were amazing hostesses. The breakfasts in the morning were a treat and an incredible way to start a day. There cannot be another place in Zihuatanejo that even comes close to this. Heavenly....

Our fourth trip to "Z" and our first time at this fabulous hotel. Location,beauty,solitude,views,friendly family owned staff. We had our own private infinity pool on our patio overlooking the bay from the third level of the hotel. Very private and romantic!
They will make you a great breakfast if you like. My favorite; Huevos Mexicana with fresh tortillas!!
I'll ad to this post when I have a few more minutes...

My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights leading up to our wedding in Zihuatanejo. We cannot express how perfect of a place Hotel Casa Don Francisco is. Firstly, it is at the end of La Ropa beach, so there is much more of an isolated and private feeling to the location. Secondly, Erica, who runs the hotel is one of the kindest, warmest individuals. Her entire family is so deeply rooted in La Ropa beach and they truly bring a spirit of hospitality and fun that is unparalleled. The breakfasts are delicious, with a wonderful view of the bay and all of the rooms are spectacular - we stayed in the El Dorado room - with a dipping pool. The staff is so sweet, they helped move baggage, offer ideas for day trips, and chatted with us as if we were friends for years (their english is excellent if you do not speak spanish). We will return here when we go back to Zihua.

My wife and I just returned from a weeks vacation in Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa. We stayed the first 3 nights in the LaPerla room at Casa Don Francisco. This room is perched on top of the resort and provides privacy and a beautiful view of the bay. The shower in the room was enormous with a large window to the outside. The resort is spotless and the gardens beautiful. Erica was most helpful answering questions by e-mail before we arrived and in person while at the resort. Her sister prepared a spectacular breakfast each morning-Mexican eggs, tamales, chilaquiles, fresh fruit---we didnt need to eat again until supper. We enjoyed and felt safe walking on the beach at night to the restaurants on Playa LaRopa -however would carry a flashlight. A short cab ride is necessary for the restaurants and markets downtown. No negatives-would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Zihuatanejo.

This was truly an excellent hotel in Zihua. Unless you are staying at the bigger, much more expensive resorts (of which there are only about two or three in zihua) this is without a doubt your best option, and definitely the best value. Each room is different, but all are beautiful. Erica, the owner/manager is a dream, and the hotel is very convenient to the beach (about 40 steps) or to the bus station to go into town. I'm surprised it's not rated higher, because having scene quite a few of the hotels in Zihua, the rest don't even compare. If you are a tv addict beware that they don't have any tvs in the rooms, but that is a good things. You won't miss it. The included breakfasts were the best food we had while in Zihua.

My husband and I wanted to get away to enjoy a relaxing week in Zihua. We wanted a hotel that reflected the flavor of Zihuatanejo while providing comfort. Erika and her family provided us with excellent service. Casa Don Francisco was close to a marvelous beach and great local restaurants. Erica helped us plan a lobster dinner and a kayak trip. We also enjoyed the safety of the beach and the fact that we could walk at night to the restaurants without fear. Our room had a dipping pool - a place to cool off during the day or evening. We also had an excellent ocean view. We highly recommend this hotel and hope to return.
