“Lovely colourful room.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2009

We stayed in the room with a private bathroom. The room had a very open feel with no glass in the windows, just shutters. Our room had a small area with hammock and deck chair surrounded by plants. The room was clean and colourful and decorated with traditional textiles. The bed had a mosquito net provided.

The location was fantastic, right on the beach, and within minutes of places to eat. Our visit was in low season and the restaurant / bar didn't seem to be open all throughout the day but served a great breakfast.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2008

This is a really gorgeous posada, and I'd highly recommend it. We stayed in the sea-view room, which was 400 Mexican pesos (about £20 a night). For that you get a large room, with a mosquito net over the bed, a balcony on the beach and an en-suite bathroom. This is a budget traveller choice, so there's no hot water, but it's so hot in Zipolite, that isn't a problem.

Other cheaper rooms are set in a lovely garden – the really simple ones with a shared bathroom are only 200 pesos a night, and each has a hammock hanging outside.

The owners are charming and create a lovely easy-going atmosphere. The restaurant serves juices, milkshakes, cocktails and fantastic Italian food, and they have a lovely area on the beach with deckchairs, palm-covered parasols and straw mats for sunbathing.

Extra touches included free snacks whenever you ordered cocktails and free still water in your room. One of the owners, Marisole, even took me along to her yoga class down the beach, which I'd really recommend. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend Zipolite, or Pousada Mexico enough. We stayed in Mazunte, and visited San Agustinillio (two beaches nearby), and I'd recommend Zipolite over both of them.
