There's not much more that can be said - Amuleto is an amazing hotel, with impeccable taste and design, exception service from the staff, and outstanding cuisine. Nestled in the hills above Zihuatanejo Bay, it's reputation of having one of the best pools in Mexico held true - it's the best view I've had in Mexico and rivals the beauty I've only seen in Kauai's Hanalei Bay.
Each room is perfectly designed to fit the natural topography of the land - all with their own private decks and views of the bay (most also with their own pool). Handcrafted furniture with old world charm has been curated to outfit the rooms - providing tasteful compliments to more modern amenities (recessed spotlighting with dimmers, cold A/C, refrigerators). The bathrooms are superior - ours was open spaced and set outside of the room, with a custom rainfall shower above a tiled bath. Liberating.
The food was among the best we sampled during our visit. There's not reason to venture off too far. Breakfasts where exceptional - with specials every morning (I recommend the enchiladas and chilaquiles). The octopus salad at dinner was also fantastic. We were greeted with a margarita and fresh made guacamole - quickly becoming staples of our time there.
I can't say enough about the service. Not once did we go without. Not once did I have to give my room number when placing an order. And the turndown service - I don't know how they did it. Our room was cleaned twice daily without us evening seeing anyone come or go.
This is highly recommended. I hope to return soon.
