Nice buy shoud have Ac

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
The location is wonderful the hotel in general is really nice the only problem was that there was not AC on the standard or small casitas. We were right on the beach, but for the same price I could of have stayed on the other side of the street on a room with AC. Too many steps, but well worth it to walk them since the food is delicious at the restaurant.

Built in exercise program!

Would recommend Wed, Jan 21, 2015
First time in a long time I've come home from vacation and actually lost weight instead of gaining! Lots of steps but you get used to them and it is definitely good to wear off all that good food and drink! Enjoyed our room, the pool and the restaurant and bar but the beach is what you go for - and Playa la Ropa is the most beautiful beach ever! Staff is courteous and helpful and always smiling of course!

Dining

Bring a small flashlight as the beach is dark at night - nice restaurants close by where you can sit with your feet in the sand....

Great Hotel On Playa La Ropa

Would recommend Wed, Dec 11, 2013
Great Hotel on the beach. Excellent staff and service. Restaurant is the unsung hero of Zihautanejo, excellent food and presentation, service to match. This hotel does not have all the amenities but offers an excellent hotel experience at a budget cost. Views of the bay are breathtaking from almost anywhere within the hotel property. We are going to return next year and bring other family members to enjoy.

Nightlife hint

Fiesta in town on Fri. Sat. and Sunday, at the Basketball Court Downtown Zihua Fun evening for entire family.

loved it

Would recommend Sat, Apr 13, 2013
We were in an older room that was just the basics. There were other options that were more upscale. The grounds, retaurants, pool were all perfect. The cost of meals was great and the staff was amazing. It is a very steep incline where it is located so not good for those with physical setbacks and elderly people. The views were breathtaking and the area was lush with trees and flowers. The beach was right there and had every excursion you would want. No need for a car, cabs were great. Can not drink the water but food and drinks with ice were no problem. Very close to the airport (Ixtapa). We had no issues with any bugs, but saw great wildlife in and out of the water. Loved it all!

Dining

The Linda Vista restaurant is at the hotel, the food was the best food I have ever had in Mexico let alone many other places. The staff was so professional and friendly. The fish was freshly caught and amazing. Great prices and we charged it all to our room.

on the beach

Would recommend Sat, Mar 2, 2013
Clean, friendly hotel on the beach at La Ropa. Good food and reasonably priced--willig to cook to our preferences. Room was mediocre, in need of an upgrade, but a great view from the patio. Noisy--we had a loud family and cranky baby next to us in a room that wasn't close to full. Lots of steps to climb--you have to be in shape to stay here. Pool was clean, beautiful. Beach palapas were great.

Wonderful place!

Would recommend Mon, Mar 12, 2012
Catalina Beach Resort was wonderful. Playa la Ropa is a beautiful beach to stay on and they had a wonderful set up of loungers and shade right on the beach. It was a bit strange getting used to only having screens on the windows, but I quickly became pretty comfortable with my surroundings. There are a whole lot of stairs here, so just be prepared to get a bit of a calf work-out. I would most definitely stay here if I return to Zihuatanejo.

catalnia beach resort

Would recommend Sat, Apr 23, 2011
the beach and scenery was beautiful. the activities were reasonably priced. jet skis about 35 per half hour. food was very good at the hotel. my compliments to the shef for a job very well done. the staff was very friendly and helfpull! good hotel. the one bad thing is all the stairs you climb to the resturant if you are the lower level. from the beach to the lobby is about 180 stairs so bring some walking shoes. if you dont mind that then its gorgeous. beds were a little hard but we had the cheapest room so waht do you expect...

Shopping hint

not to far its about 50 pesos to go from the hotel to the market and another 50 to go back. the town is nice but didt offer much for us.

Unbeatable for the price

Would recommend Fri, Apr 8, 2011
I agree with the poster about not getting a small casita...we did at first but I immediately upgraded for $25 more per night and was extremely satisfied with our room (a newly remodeled one). Cleaned every day which we didn't need but we didn't have a sign to put out. Great food, and the staff were very helpful and personable. Loved the Sunset Bar and Beach Bar. Gorgeous views from all over the hotel. There is construction going on at this hotel and next door, but it was never distracting. Infinity pool was perfect...beach was wonderful and they are right there with food and drinks if you ask. I caution about the numerous stairs but I must not be in too great shape because no one else seemed to complain! The stairs did add to the charm of the resort. This was a very relaxing place to stay if you want to steer clear of the more touristy areas in Ixtapa. All in all, we loved it!

Don't get a casita

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 22, 2011
We needed a hotel to stay at one night before transferring on to the condo we were renting for the week. Upon arrival Catalina reminded me more of a youth hostel/pension than a hotel, and the small casita we rented was on the same level of quality. All the way down by the pool in room 13, we had two double beds, a fridge and a bathroom and ceiling fan... its classification should lay somewhere between rustic and dumpy, though I must admit it was clean. The bed was hard and equipped with two lumpy pillows. The restaurants, bar and beach area are all quite lovely and I'm sure if you upgraded to some of the higher quality rooms it would be quite nice, but I can't recommend staying in a small casita under any circumstance.

Nightlife hint

The sunset bar has 2/1 happy hours from 6-8. Their margaritas and mojitos were divine!
