Great value hotel

Value is the key here. The rooms and grounds are basic, but the hotel is located right on the beach... See full review

8th visit and still as good!!

As the title say this is our 8th visit to Villa Mexicana in as many years, standard stays the same staff are friendly and helpful food is good quality and value. I only have one criticism and that is the access to the pools, there are no handrails on any of the gorgeous pools so if you have even minor mobility issues then it is quite a trauma to get in and out.

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

Beautiful place right on the beach!

We have stayed at Villa Mexican many times and have loved it each time. The staff at this hotel go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. The locations could be no better as it is located on the beautiful La Ropa beach. The restaurant is one of the best too.

Great hotel ON the beach

This wonderful Mexican hotel is one of the few in Zihuatenejo that is not on a cliff, but is actually on the beach. Terrific, low key restaurants on the beach neighbor it, as well as a good on-site restaurant. Like most truly Mexican restaurants, the beds are very firm, bordering on hard. Very clean. Oceanview rooms are on first-come first served. We put our names on a list and changed to ocean view after three days. These rooms don't cost extra. Some of thr rooms are by a kiddie pool which may or maynot appeal to you, depending on your family. This was our second time at Villa Mexicana and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Zihuatenejo.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

One of the most romantic restaurants I have ever been to anywhere in the world is La Cala, which is build into a cliff just above the water. To get there you need to take a dirt road with a taxi, but once you get there it is charming and the food is outstanding.

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 place

Villa Mexicana is a great place for couples or families that like a more quiet getaway on the beach. I went during their low season (end of May) and the beach was nearly deserted of tourists. The hotel has everything you need at a low price and great location.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

You can walk to a decent snorkeling area on Las Gatas beach. Follow La Ropa beach to the end and continue over the rocks and dirt roads. Takes about 45 minutes and a relatively easy walk for a semi-active person. Avoid the "land sharks" on La Ropa beach trying to make you pay to take you there to snorkel, you can walk and rent snorkel gear for 50 pesos. Very fun day!
