Villa Mexicana Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Many travelers are repeat each year and two weeks to month is a norm. This resort is loved by Mexican tourists as well. Was busy the first part of January. After the holiday time mostly USA -Minnesota and western Canadians alta and BC. Right on the ocean and the sand is amazingly soft. Approx 8 close by beach restaurants on the beach for breakfast/lunch or dinner. Villa has a 2-for1 from 5-7 as well and the drinks are not watered down. Our room was very clean and cleaning staff was accommodating . We usually tipped 5/day dollars. Need styro cooler from resort if your lucky or purchase a local store to keep your drinks and food stuff cold. No coffee maker. If you don't sign up for food packages you can have coffee free from 7-8 (not great coffee though) we found foods just as good elsewhere and cheaper on the pocket book. You can walk to town 20 minutes. Two hills steepish -one on the way in and one on the way back. Not too bad but you may work up a sweat. Good for your daily exercise! When I go back I would go three weeks rather than two and bring a small coffee maker and coffee. By the way not may kids, and the average age would be mid 40s to 70s but mostly 60ish....quiet and great for reading, relaxing and swimming.

Room Tip: Oceanview second floor near restaurant has great view. #1416 had quiet air conditioner . We paid ext...

Steps from the room to the dining room, beach, beach chairs, and sea.
Clean, comfortable rooms.
Great shower!
Wonderful, friendly, hard working staff.
If you need something, just ask. Staff want to please.
Over Christmas and New Years, many families visiting. Perfect for children.
Saw sea turtle lay her eggs on the beach!!!
Really, this hotel operates very smoothly!! Management credits their staff who do deserve many thanks for providing a great holiday venue.

The Villa Mexicana sits right on the beach so that's a good start. The rooms are adequate for a beach hotel, except I think for a beach hotel it could use some more towel hooks or places to hang your wet suits, towels, etc. The beds are the hardest beds we have ever been on - not very comfortable. The breakfast that was included was ample, a lot of choices, but for some reason, they were out of tamales (which was a menu choice) for 2 days in a row. Overall, it is a nice place for the money.

Super hotel on the beach about 15 minutes walk from town of Zihuatenejo. Good food in the restaurant. Friendly staff. Super location. I went at the start of the low season and got excellent rates for the 4 nights I was there. The presence of turtles at night was an added bonus.

Room Tip: Pay extra and get a room with a sea view.

Every November, we head south to Zihuatanejo's Villa Mexicana for a 2 week stay. The strangest thing is we are not the kind of travelers that go back to same place all the time, but this place has converted us. Villa Mexicana is right on the best beach in Zihua, LaRopa, which has a lot of great places to eat and sleep. Villa Mexicana is the only affordable place right on the beach, nothing is seperating you from the ocean and your beach chair. None of this, near the beach, right above the beach, this is right ON the beach! I dont think you can beat this for convenience and price. The view is spectacular looking right on the bay, there is a restaurant and bar and little boutique as well. Food is pretty good although we like to try other places a lot. The staff is like family since everyone has been there for ages. It feels so good to see the same staff every year and follow their lives. We were even invited to one of their weddings! Massages would be the 2nd reason to return here, Benny is the best there is right on the grounds. I try to pace myself and only get a massage every couple days since the price is right and they get better and better. Happy hour is also an important sunset and social event. We have gotten to know so many of the regulars that it is like coming home when we get there!

Room Tip: You have to ask and pay a little extra for an ocean facing room but well worth it and still a bargai...

Villa Mexicana is a small hotel in a great location on Playa Ropa..the staff is great, very accommodating , the rooms are simple, but well maintained ... The pools are small but clean... And the massages are excellent ...

Room Tip: Pool side rooms have lots of traffic walking by all day.. 2nd floor is better in my opinion..

It's only negative is the hard mattress....a small place, motel like...one level, right on the beach and right next to a lovely infinity pool. My vacation location of choice, hands down. Would skip all the fancy resorts for this place. Great staff, restaurant very close and the best cheesy nachos by far. Highly recommend!!
