La Casa Que Canta

Reviewed 14 June 2004

just returned from zihua and stayed at both casa que canta and villa del sol. cqc is unimaginably beautiful, and my wife and i agree that it has a certain magical quality to it. the staff was impeccable, and that means everyone from chambermaids to upper management. the rooms (i saw quite a few as the hotel was not full) are architectural wonders, as is the entire hotel. also, all meals eaten were superb, and i did not find the sevice snooty as has been mentioned on this site and others. when you walk through the door of this place, you enter another world. a very peaceful and quiet world where there is virtually no guest interaction, and enough hidden lounging areas to make sure it stays that way. this is by no means a complaint; you just need to know what to expect. which brings me to villa del sol.
i have read countless comparisons of cqc and vds, including one account where the reviewer could not wait to leave cqc, and saved their zihua trip by fleeing to vds. while vds is a nice place with beautiful rooms, there is just no way to compare the quality between these two hotels. food,staff, and public spaces are just not on the same level at vds. if you like considerable interaction, maybe cqc is not for you. but 5pm poolside at vds with a boombox, people doing cannonballs into the pool, and shouting to the bar for more drinks was not particularly for us. again, the room at vds (we only saw one-ours) was fabulous, but it did not make up for the other shortcomings between the two properties.
regarding the beach, cqc is on a cliff with beach access only. the amazing salt water pool made up for it, however. vds is directly on the beach which is good and bad. beach vendors are pleasant but non-stop. also, this is not the caribbean. two women boogie boarders received relatively bad facial injuries after being crushed by waves which do not particularly look all that threatening. (one fx'd nose and the other some pretty bad scarring)

After much deliberation, my husband & I chose to spend our honeymoon at La Casa Que Canta. There are so many beautiful resorts along the Mexican coast, but we chose this one based on Tripadvisor reviews and their beautiful website. We splurged and stayed in the "Mexico Lindo" suite, the largest, most expensive suite on the property. It was well worth the extra money. The entire resort is absolutely breathtaking, although it was several days before we left our room to explore it. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. They go above & beyond to satisfy your needs. Everyone that we had contact with spoke English, so there is no problem with miscommunication. The food is excellent & they serve you more than enough. A previous review stated that the food was not that good and the quantities were small. We did not find that to be true. Everything about this hotel is geared toward serenity, privacy, and romance. This is not the place to go if you need to be around other people. It was exactly what we needed after 1+ years of planning our wedding.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys all of the finer things in life without all the stuffy attitude that comes with it. If at all possible, request Suite #2, the Mexico Lindo. The pool is totally private, as is the spacious patio area.
We are already planning our next trip and will stay in their private residence next door, "El Murmullo". I didn't think anything could top Casa Que Canta.... until I saw this place. Just gorgeous!!
