Zihua, GRO Gem! Casa Cuitlateca is amazing!

Posted Dec 17, 2014
Pros: Views, rooms, staff, food, common space, pool. All excellent
Cons: Minor cosmetic updates. By minor I mean very minor. Couple of new pillows here or there.
Location: The location is excellent. Views are amazing. Playa La Ropa is right down the hill and Bandido's is a hop away, or stay on property all day.
The location was excellent. Views from the property are unprecedented. The true gem of the property is the staff. Extremely personable, accommodating, and genuine. For my wife and I it's not a question of if we'll go back, but when. And when we do it will be to Casa Cuitlateca! Enjoy!

Just Perfect.

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: The view and the pool deck.
Cons: We had a few ants in the room, but they handled the problem immediately.
Location: The hotel is between two beaches, at the top of the scene highway. Playa La ropa is a nice, quiet beach. Also, there are lots of restaurants around.
Casa Cuitlateca is the hotel I have been looking for some time. A small boutique hotel but without being ostentatious nor opulent. Even though they have like just 7 rooms, you can feel the friendliness and sympathy of the people who works there. You feel like home. You feel part of it. The deck is amazing. It hosts the small but delicious restaurant, the sun chairs, the pool and a tropical pool bed where you can have the siesta of your life. Also, the view is impressive, maybe the best thing the hotel has. I truly recommend it if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, small and friendly place.

Lush and intimate

It was fabulous. Small, only 5rooms, each with beautiful local art and view of bay. Great service and food. Walk to town or grab a taxi nearby. Two superb restaurants in walking distance, beach too.

Nightmare in Zihuatanejo.

Posted May 18, 2014
There was roaches in the bathroom. Which means if there are roaches here there are roaches in the kitchen. The towels and bedding are stained. The staff sits in the patio area and has lunch or a pitcher of horchata. Very casually. When I came down for breakfast I was greeted by the cook with the gold/silver in her teeth. She looked at me with such fatigue and hatred. Because she may have thought she would be getting up from her chair she was sitting in. I was determined not to eat breakfast after the morning before when she made us the most disgusting breakfast I have ever seen. Everything technically is reheated in the microwave. They need some better management. Someone who will keep their kitchen stocked with the few things they offer on their menu. There's this weird host I didn't get his name he has a blinking problem. He's creepy. He lounges around you where you can see him while you're eating. The last day we were there we decided to bipass the hustle and grind of the city. We ate there. Once again he was eating his dinnerlike many other times. He didn't bother to get up. He finished his meal. Then he waited on us. The place has a nice garden, pool, palapa, and room balcony. The service should be better, they should get new cooks, do something about the cracks on the doors, and rotate their bedding and towels. Zihuatanejo isn't too friendly to tourists by the way. All they see is money.

wonderfully relaxing very small hotel

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: The staff and the relaxing, romantic atmosphere.
Cons: They could use another shaded lounge area by the pool (they are in the process of expanding the deck to do that now).
Location: Great restaurants and the beach within a short walk. Get a massage on the beach, water ski, parasail jet ski, etc. etc.
We stayed 5 nights in April 2014. The staff is wonderfully low key... no hype. service is very pleasant and helpful at all time. The setting is on the hill overlooking La Ropa beach. It is not on the beach. However it is only about a 15 minute hike, very easy going down to the beach and a bit more strenuous coming back up. But La Ropa is close enough that we walked down to get a massage on the beach every day (200 pesos for an hour) and most were very skillful. Several excellent restaurants with fabulous views are within a few minutes walk. The hotel pool and lounge area is so restful and beautiful that you may not want to leave it. It is very romantic. I strongly recommend it unless you are absolutely set on having a room right on the beach itself.

Pros: Beautiful art and design in a true mexican flavor. pool has magnificent view of the bay. Beautiful gardens, coy ponds, and infinity pool.
Cons: Don't change anything!

very relaxing, staff always willing to go out of their way to help.
