We travelled to Troncones with our family (party of 6 adults and a 19 month old)... our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa De La Sirena...we stayed in the Private Villa (which was indeed very private) there is much thought and care put into the design layout and upkeep of the property....the property is nicer than photos on any of the web-sites...staff is friendly, welcoming and responsive to any needs (Humberto was amazing to deal with- he arranged transport into Zihua, return airport transport, dinner reservations, provided a blender and toaster oven and gave us insight into the area)... the grounds are beautiful, well-maintained and private; the pool cleaned daily, beds comfortable, towels large and fluffy, rooms clean, good showers, location is superb, and nice traditional Mexican art and ceramics on display in the rooms. We enjoyed yoga (which you can sign up for) a few mornings during our stay. We purchased fish and fruits and vegetables from the local trucks...outstanding quality and selection.
The local restaurants were excellent with the owners/staff at each being very accommodating and friendly...we went to:
La Mexicana (across the street) - excellent (we had take out lunches on a couple of occasions and three dinner experiences)
Mini Chencho - excellent
Roberto's - fantastic to see the turtles - everyone found this as an experience not to be missed. As for the restaurant experience, this was not our best experience (service and food)
Siete Mare - great setting, service and food was good.
Cafe Sol - great breakfast, smoothies, baked goods and bread.
Costa Brava - only had breakfast - it was really good with amazing tortillas - might have been the best tortillas we ate.
Booking, correspondence etc. with Debbie prior to our arrival was superb - she was very helpful especially making arrangements to accommodate our 19 month old grandson (with crib, high chair and gate). We will definitely consider a return visit to Troncones and if and when we do that Casa de la Sirena will be the place we will stay. Troncones has not yet been touched by mass tourism, yet it has all one needs to have a completely delightful and relaxing vacation...beach is not crowded and perfect for long walks, sunsets (breathtaking), excellent food and extremely friendly people.
Highly recommended if you're looking for a place to totally recharge.
