great locationPosted May 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
A great little older hotel. Loved the location and the views. It is not fancy but very adequate. We were a group with four rooms and the wide terraces made it great for socializing.

Great LocationPosted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: The pool area overlooking the bay was beautiful. The location was perfect!
Cons: The rooms needed updating. Mattresses were hard. Air conditioning was loud. Bathrooms needed total improvement from new plumbing to grouting.
Location: 5 minute walk to outstanding restaurants! 10 minute walk to banks downtown. 5 minute walk to Mercado for fresh fruits and vegetables!
Perfect hotel for my husband and myself, but I would not like to mislead others. The hotel was within walking distance to many local restaurants, the market, and downtown. Taxis are located outside the perimeter of the hotel for people not able to walk. The staff was accommodating, helpful, and pleasant. Rooms were cleaned usually by noon. But there was a lot more needed in the rooms that cleaning could not overcome. General repairs needed to be done before I would recommend this hotel to any of our friends. However, outdoor maintenance (pool area, grounds around the hotel) was exceptional. The pool area overlooking the bay was perhaps the most gorgeous and relaxing site of the entire hotel. The common kitchen area on the 1st floor provided a community for people, ideal for conversation and getting to know one another. For the thrifty traveler, or the traveler not looking for a resort atmosphere, this hotel is perfect.

View the Sky, Surf, and VillagePosted Apr 1, 2013
Pros: Sound of the water, charming rooms.
Location: Best for the beach and watching beach activity, yet quietly set above it all.
Great location. Cool, spacious, quiet and friendly. Watch the little boats come in and out of the harbor.

Nothing special, but good location and great viewsPosted Feb 23, 2013
Pros: view, pool, access to beach and restaurants
Cons: checking in was the pits, original room was VERY bare necessities
Location: great location
We reserved the very basic/cheapest room - NOT GOOD! 3 beds and that's it! We upgraded (and paid an extra 600!!!) to get a "suite". This was much nicer, had a king size and a double bed, prived kitchen area outside sliding doors, a "private" jacuzzi, which we affectionately called our "cement pond". Had to be manually dumped, cleaned and filled by staff #which they willingly did#. We shared a large veranda area with others, but since there were not a lot of others, we had a lot of area to ourselves. Unbeatable view of the bay. Good beach access. Easy walk to "town" and tons of good places to eat and drink. We only ate breakfast there one day, adequate, had to pay cash, would not put it on our room. Drinks very poor. My marguiritas #on the one night we tried it during happy hour# tasted like just mix. Again, had to pay, couldn't put it on our room. Because both of these experiences were so poor, we just went elsewhere for drinks/food. Zihuat has a LOT of good restaurants to choose from The pool area was great. The hotel did not have a lot of guests, we had no problem getting chairs/table. Tourists are way down in zihuat and ixtapa and that is very sad. Some restaurants that we loved have closed, and we sensed that the locals were very concerned about this, and went out of there way to be friendly and nice. We have always felt safe there #using common sense# and would not hesitate to return again and again!

Great location, bayfront views, spare back rooms,Posted Jan 23, 2013
Pros: Budget rates, amazing views from the front rooms.
Cons: HARD mattresses, spare furnishings, curtained bathroom.
Location: Perfect for beach and town.
Location is everything--both where the hotel is sited (perfect bay views, easy walk to town) and where your room is within the hotel (back rooms dreary; front rooms bright with amazing views). Our first (back) room was dark, with only a thin curtain separating the bath from the sleeping area. Un-air conditioned but otherwise comfortable living room with fridge and kitchen, separate from the air conditioned bedroom area. Good for families or to put teens in by themselves.Bedroom area spare and depressing, with those comically concrete beds Mexicans love. Sad little pillow wouldn't satisfy a sleepy kitten. Fortunately upgraded to a bayfront suite--the Sun & Moon became Night & Day! Bright, cheerful, well decorated; real door on the bathroom, private jacuzzi (but rarely hot). Great views, but still had hard mattresses. Rooms have outside furniture, which other guests don't treat as private: always some strange kid at our outside dining table lost in his electronics. Same with our hammock. Pool small but with nice views. No public jacuzzi. Long stairway down to beach. Reception (and larger pool) are across the street at a sister hotel, which also has a rooftop bar (with view) plus a (viewless) dining room where you can get meals (we didn't, though). The Sun & Moon would be fine for visitors on a budget who still want views and location. But most travellers (from the US at least) over 30 would find the hotel --especially the rear rooms-- too barebones for a vacation getaway.

Awesome hotel for the cost!Posted Jul 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located near the beach, it's clean, the pool is warm and clean, the hotel staff was very friendly, accommodating, and the hotel had everything we could want for our stay. We will definitely come back to this hotel.
