Amulets are good luck but with Amuleto, the 5-room boutique hotel overlooking the twinkling bay of jewels known as Zihuatanejo, who needs luck? You've got charm, comfort, a simple elegance, indescribably delicious home-cooked meals, the perfect pool, a show-stopping view from every room and chair and couch, and a clairvoyant staff that treats you like family -- if your family...

We have been vacationing in Zihuatanejo for the past few years, trying out different properties each time. It's hard to go wrong - there are many impressive boutique hotels to choose from. During a prior visit, we had dinner at Amuleto and were impressed and intrigued enough to book a two night stay. Our only regret is that we didn't...

Spent 6 days in the Amuleto and were impressed from the moment we arrived. This small boutique hotel offers beautiful rooms with astonishing views. With only 6 rooms it is a perfect retreat to relax in a quite and calm atmosphere. Service and food are very good and the staff extremely friendly - a special thanks to our breakfast lady...

My husband and I travel all over the world. We love adventure, seeing new things, and having that feeling of being so far from home. Yet, we return to Amuleto each year at the same time. It's been 5 years now that we have spent New Year's Eve at Amuleto and each year, my experience gets better and better. From...

A view like no other. Food that is creative, inventive and delicious. Impeccable service that goes beyond what is the norm for top hotels. It has become a place that my husband and I return to see old friends. But these "friends" happen to be the owners of this hotel. They are there to greet their guests and give you...

We are currently staying at Amuleto. This our 5th return to this idyllic spot. As almost all of the other reviews confirm Amuleto is a special place with its beauty, service and overall care for detail. In response to the Dec. 30 review of "Horrible". I can only say that the "world traveler" who wrote it must have some other...

We are a couple, world travelers. We spent x-mas break in Zihua and heard great things about this location. We headed there to check out the facilities and make dinner reservations. The staff turned us down because they were "too busy" .... really too busy to attend prospect customer with genuine interest? Glad to take my business to Capella or...

Dear visitor, Our apologies for your experience during your visit with us. We are sorry we could not take the time to show you the facilities and make dinner reservations when you came to the restaurant. We are extremely disappointed to have failed to properly communicate the reasons to you. Please, allow me to attempt to do so. Amuleto is...

Any review that does not have Amuleto as the top hotel in Zihuatenejo should be considered suspect. This is an absolutely exquisite hotel and the location is unsurpassed. We have been to the other "top-rated" hotels in Zihuatenejo and Amuleto is in a league of it's own. Amuleto is among the best hotels we have stayed worldwide. Every room is...

My husband and I stayed at Amuleto for our honeymoon. The rooms, service, and food...everything was amazing! The kitchen has an extensive menu and will customize meals upon request. We loved relaxing in our room with our private pool and outdoor shower. I would stay here again. The beach is about a 15 min walk from the hotel, and cab...

I've never written a review here that I can remember, but this place is so special I have to.... Setting: A birthday vacation from my wife. Romantic. The Main Suite was amazing. One night we laid in the hammock together and watched the lightening storm, because we can. The hotel only had one other guest, so I can't speak to...
