We spent 8 days/nights at the Hotel Irma in November. The reviews were great, but the hotel was even better. At this time of year, the hotel was nearly empty and we enjoyed a practically "private" resort.
As others have mentioned, the hotel is on the cliff side overlooking beautiful Zihua bay. There is a steep stone staircase leading down to the beach, or one can walk down the streetside to the beach access. The hotel has 2 gorgeous pools and plenty of lounge chairs. Since our stay was during the low season, we never had any problems with finding chairs - our only problem was deciding which ones.
The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, from the front desk clerks (hola Jaime!) to the wonderful wait staff and housekeepers, who kept our room spotless and created adorable towel animals every night. Our room overlooked the bay with a balcony and chairs. The room was huge, and had a king size bed, large walk in shower, plenty of shelves for storage, and beautifully decorated.
We ate breakfast most days at the hotel, and the food and views were excellent. Breakfast was about $7 a day. Breakfast can be had for about $3 elsewhere, but not with this view. Food was delicious and fresh.
The Hotel Irma is in very convenient location, about 10 minutes walk to downtown Zihua. There are restaurants close by, as well as an internet cafe and small bodegas. Cabs are readily available. The hotel is at the top of a steep hill, which could be a challenge for older or less fit guests, but we enjoyed the climb. It helped burn off some of the great meals we had. Don't miss Rufo's Grill, just down the hill from the Irma.
