    Great views from the rooms, rest. & bar. Nice wide beach access. Relaxed atmosphere and nice included breakfast service with lots of fruit. Built in exercise program going up and down the many stairs - not for those with mobility issues.

    The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. The views from the bar and restaurant we're exceptional. We didn't find the stairs to be a problem,we considered them to be a form of exercise. On the downside,it is Mexico,things don't always work--usually to do with bathrooms.

    We loved the older style property and location. The staff were so pleasant and accommodating. Our bungalow room was large and very clean. The view of the ocean from our deck was fantastic . Breakfast was excellent and the staff bent over backwards to make changes to the meal as requested so it wasn't the same daily. There are a lot of steps, but you get a nice little workout daily. Beach facilities were very good and beach is one of the best in the area. Not crowded and good swimming.

    Disappointment

    Perhaps we were assigned our room because we were only staying one night, perhaps other rooms are nicer, and perhaps our room is not used often. Nonetheless, our room was a real disappointment -- the entry way outside the door was filled with garbage, the room had a thick patina of dust/dirt on every flat surface, and the toilet was badly stained. Breakfast was good and the beach area is fine.

    We loved the hospitality, the access to the beach and the included breakfast. I would recommend it as an affordable alternative to Zihuatanejo.

    This is a nice hotel, albeit older. The beachfront with palopyas on La Ropa beach is an awesome feature. The grounds have well-kept gardens and trees that attract birds and butterflies. The staff are accommodating and friendly. The hotel is situated on a hill and there are many stairs and no elevator. If you have mobility problems then this is not the right property for you.

    First night there had dinner in restaurant. Didnt know it but waiter didnt speak English and brought us all the wrong food. No "I'll get you something else". That was it! No compensation! Just a brief "waiter doesn't speak English". Our receipt from expedia said "Breakfast included" which was EXCELLENT. The receipt also said $50 in beverages. Which we found out at checkout was 50 pesos. There again a "Too bad" explaination.

    This was the first cliffside resort built in 1951 in Zihua, note there's no elevators and huge set of staircases. So, not the best choice for anyone with body aches, poor knees, or ankles, etc. However, the views are gorgeous, the beach bar and palapas offer shade with old growth of plants and trees. It's more of Mexican quality and style of hotel, which I love the ambiance of. Food is more bland but very well prepared and prices are extremely reasonable. Some rooms do not have AC and the bathrooms are very old/dingy. The views and hammock on our deck made up for it. You get cliffside restaurant view, pool options and fabulous beach access in one for a very affordable price. Just beware of those stairs! I had to take 3 rests to make it up to the reception. We found a taxi could get us up/down a steep side road as our room was pool level.

    It is run down and had lots of issues with no hot water. There were way to many steps and can be quite dangerous at night. The food was mediocre.
