Winter Vacation

We have been going here for the last three years and we love it. The location doesn't get any better for the price and the staff is always friendly. The beds and the drink prices are a bit stiff. However there are a couple mini-marts right next door to buy drinks from. We have been to Cancun, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta and we keep coming back here to visit Mexico for real.

Right next door is Paty's which has great breakfast, lunch,dinner and massages. Much better than the hotel itself and at cheap prices (except for the massages).

Best vacation

The hotel was beautiful, clean and excellent location. The staff takes very good care of the property. Food was very good and especially the snack menu and breakfast menu were very reasonably priced. Many good restuarants are a short walk away. You can easily walk to town or take a taxi for around $4usd. We would definitely stay here again. My husband is a commerical airline pilot and I am a flight attendant so we have stayed in many hotels. We would recommend Hotel Villa Mexicana to anyone looking for peace relaxation and location

Best value on the best beach.

Right on the beach, nice hotel, good staff, very relaxing. Second floor room of beach units was great. Close to nice downtown area, $ 4 or less by taxi. We liked it better than Ixtapa. Better swimming, more of a Mexican atmosphere. At night you may see a Sea turtle laying eggs. Collected turtle eggs are kept in a breeding area up or down the beach. If you are lucky, you might see them hatch. Full body massages at the beach for 300 pesos ($ 25.00) are great.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Get pesos from teller machines in the commercial zone (near banks) in downtown Zihuatanejo. Dollars in cash are difficult to exchange at banks, passport and a long waits are required. 1,000 pesos costs you approx. $ 80.00. If you pay cash in $, they charge you 1 to 1, $ 100.00 for 1,000 pesos, a 25% premium.

"Great beach location at a great price"

This was our 8th stay at Villa Mexicana.For a relaxing, quiet spot at a great price, it can't be beat. It's basic but clean, and the staff is very friendly! You're 5-10 minutes away from several beach restaurants, and town is a short taxi ride away.

We love Villa Mexicana!

We love Villa Mexicana and have returned year after year! It is a perfect chill beach vacation spot, great for kids and romantic couples alike! The rooms are no frills, but who wants to spend their beach vacation in their room!?

There are some fantastic restaurants in town! Just a quick bus or taxi ride. The bus is great but stops running at 7pm and is just 65p the taxi is easy as pie and pretty reasonably priced to el Centro for shopping and great local flavors! I'd stear clear of the beach front restaurants and hit up Tamele Ani! Yum!!!

A good trip

When we arrived at the hotel after a long day of traveling, they did not have our reservation in their computer, even though we had booked it 6 weeks prior. They put us in a room in the back which was available until they could look into it further. This was aggravating and very disappointing. By the next day, they were able to confirm our reservation and got us moved into a sea-front room. This was the only aggravation Otherwise the staff and the cleanliness and the location can't be repeat. We will definitely go back again.

Awesome

Well the hotel is definately in need of renovation it is clean and well maintained and what it lacks in style it more than makes up for in value and location with a friendly helpful staff.

best place on La Ropa of the money

This hotel is FULL of repeaters....that should tell you something. Our 3rd stay...beachfront rooms are best; interior ones have no view. 90% of the rooms are identical-a bit small, some have good closet space, some have next to nothing. It's on the best spot on the beach with a wonderful private lounge/pool area that you never have to fight for a good place to hang out. Simple quiet rooms, great location, nice staff, great value!

Very nice hotel

Friendly, clean, with rooms in good shape. Location is excellent -- just steps to the beach. Right next door to the Tides which is 3 times the price for the same beach.
