We just returned Feb 2, 2008 from Hotel Cinco Sentido,
suite # 3. When we arrived we loved the hotel, there are
only 5 suites, so little or no people at the pool. There are
58 steps to suite#3 so if you have a problem with steps
this is not the place to stay, we would walk to the beautiful
beach La Ropa, which has very good restaurants, then would
take a taxi back up the hill to the hotel. We prefer Zihuatanejo
over Ixtapa as it is more old Mexico where Ixtapa is a tourist
town built by the government for American and Canadian
tourists. We were having a wonderful vacation, enjoying the
hotel and my husband did very well fishing, 9 sails 2 marlin,
catch and release. Then the 3rd day everything everything went down hill, Hieko the owner was having people at his office after 10 PM every night and talking very loud, which kept us awake.
Then Hieko decided to clean the water in the pool and said it would be ready in an hour......it was finally ready three days
later an hour before we left for the airport, for anyone who has been around pools you will know it does not take 3 days to clean
a pool...very disappointing.
If you plan to visit the Hotel I would suggest not taking unit #3
as it is too close to office noise at night and make sure they
are not going to clean the pool while you are there.
It is too bad such a beautiful hotel is not being handled unprofessionally. There was another review for Dec. 12, 2007
with the same complaint, wish I had read all the reviews before
