This was our second time to Zihuatanejo, and the second time staying in the Madera area, but our first time staying at Bungalows La Madera (Nov 23-30). We had previously stayed in a pricier hotel and enjoyed the fact that Madera is so central we could walk almost anywhere we knew we would like to stay in the same area. With a toddler in tow on this vacation, we wanted a kitchenette, a pool and access to a family friendly beach and needless to say we quite happy with the price and location. We stayed in a new beach side suite and were not disappointed. Everything we needed was there and spent most of our days in the pool and on the beach. We prefer a smaller family run type of hotel vs. the all inclusive pampered vacation. Here are a few of the reasons Bungalows La Madera excelled....
Travelling with a toddler I was concerned that our accomodations would be safe enough for a very curious and energetic child...numerous emails before reserving gave us a run down of each suite and which one would probably work best for us (we of course were extremely happy with the one we chose)
When we were there it was the American Thanksgiving. The family who owns and runs the place invited all the guests staying there for a full home cooked meal (although we didn't stay our friends said it was absolutely delicious)...quite an undertaking and very thoughtful.
We were sitting at the airport for our return trip home when Mark came through the airport looking for us...we had left our iphone in our room accidently and when the cleaning staff found it, had brought it forward. The fact that Mark drove all the way to the airport trying to find us before we left (without us even knowing we had left it behind) was amazing to us.
All the staff (cleaning, maintenance) were very friendly and helpful. Although we feel safe in the area, having to use a key card to gain entrance to the hotel gave the extra peace of mind. We absolutely will be back to stay at Bungalows La Madera as it provided all we expected (and more)!
