This was our second stay in Zihua, we came here 10 years ago before we got married and now on our 10th Anniversary, and love this town even more! We stayed at the Tides our first time here (then known as Villa Del Sol) and had a great time there. This trip we wanted something a smaller, more intimate boutique hotel, and were more than happy with Cinco Sentidos. We stayed in the Grand Suite, which was beautiful and spacious. It was Sept, so very hot, and I kind of wish we had more indoor space that was air conditioned. The living area and bathroom have no a/c, so you need to go in the bedroom to cool off in very hot weather. But when you come to Mexico, you expect in to be hot! We had a late fight out and asked if we could have a late check out. They had new guests arriving that had booked our room, so they let us use another room (maybe rm 3-close to the front desk on the same floor as the pool) and it was very nice too. It would be hard to choose between the two if we went back, because the second room was all enclosed with a/c. It was nice to take a shower and not sweat while you are getting ready to go out. Plus the sitting area w/ tv were also inside. We had a couple of REALLY rainy days, which was fine but we stayed in our room and watched movies. It would have been nice to have the extra space to lounge in that wasn't outside in the humid air. All have private infinity pools and lounge chairs. While we were there we only saw one other couple once, so we had the whole place to ourselves, and used the bigger pool a few times. The hotel is up a little very steep hill, but the walk is nice after eating chips and guac and having a few drinks on the beach. It was my daily workout! I would totally recommend Cinco Sentidos.
