Hotels in Zihuatanejo

Pure romance of the white-wine-at-sunset and walk-on-the-beach variety is the allure at this 25-suite hideaway above La Ropa Beach. All rooms have a cool Mexican contemporary vibe, ample ocean views, and private terraces (televisions are notably absent); 11 have private plunge pools.

Built into a hillside on a private cove and refreshed to the tune of $20 million in 2007, this seaside oasis lies just south—and yet worlds apart—from Ixtapa’s strip of high-rise hotels, but it’s still just a 10-minute taxi ride from either the nightlife and restaurants of Ixtapa or old Zihuatane

Formerly Tides Zihuatanejo.

Recently reopened palm-shrouded villas and palapas on a quiet beach.

Just a two-minute walk from Zihuatanejo Bay’s secluded palm-fringed beach, this seven-villa property designed by local architect Enrique Mueller is down-to-earth elegant and almost half the price of its neighbor The Tides.
