Hotel Real de la Palma
Ranked #9 of 63 Zihuatanejo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 April 2014

My wife and stayed 24 days (ending April 4, 2014) at this excellent hotel. The hotel was recommended by friends. We found the owners, Carlos and Elsa to be on premises every day. We found them to be very hospitable, extending every kindness...even offering to take me to their personal physician! The hotel has a fine restaurant, two pools, lovely gardens, and is immaculate. Our veranda was equipped with a functional, small kitchenette...perfect for coffee and pan dulce. The staff is friendly and helpful. The property is a short, level walk to Playa la Ropa...less than five minutes at vacation pace. The property is secured with a gate at night and has a night watchman, Juanito. Juanito was prompt in serving a s a wake up call on the day we went fishing. While the hotel is certainly conducive for families, we found it ideal for couples as it is a small, uncrowded, beautifully maintained hotel. Carlos and Elsa have more than 20 years in the hospitality business and speak excellent English. We will most assuredly return.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool are spacious, and have nice verandas. The cabanas are set in the garden and wil...

Having travelled to Zihuatanejo many times, this was the first time we stayed at Hotel Real de la Palma. Having no idea what to expect except through internet reviews and pictures, we were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. This place is a real gem - just off the beach. Very quiet, clean & comfortable. Elsa & Carlos are wonderful hosts and made us feel comfortable right from the start. The on-site restaurant is great - food, prices & service! We have already booked for next year - can't wait to go back.

My second stay at Hotel Real de La Plama was consistent with my first stay two years ago. Carlos and Elsa go out of their way to make a guest feel at home. The hotel is small, clean, quiet and private. The restaurant serves very good food and is well priced. The staff is friendly and many have been there for a long time, attesting to the fact that they are treated well. It is a short walk to the beach. When not in the mood for sun and sand one can relax at the pool or on a private veranda.

Beautiful hotel, fabulous service. Carlos and Elsa make the experience. Rooms are spacious and clean. Baths are like spas. Quick walk to the beach, easy taxi or bus ride to town. Crystal clear pools. The restaurant serves delicious food for any meal and its always affordable. Cannot rave enough about how this hotel adds to the whole experience. It is not a "cruise ship on land" it allows you be part of this magical village. Do not miss the sunset cruise.

Room Tip: The first floor room with the kitchen is a great suite. But any of the second floor rooms with a bal...

Everything about this place is great. Helpful owners , great staff , beautiful gardens, two swiming pools,and a very good restaurant-bar. top it off with its only two blocks from the beach,Playa Popa. The bus downtown stops out front, and costs 6 and one half pesos, .50 cents. You have the makings of a great vacation. Its good for kids also.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the villas in the back with a kitchen.

Carlos and his wife have managed this jewel of a hotel in Zihuatanejo for years. They run the place more in the spirit of a B&B than a hotel; they are ever present and they and their staff go above and beyond to make guests welcome and comfortable. The place is better than the website images with beautiful pools, gardens, restaurant, patios, and very comfortable rooms. The beach is a VERY short walk down the street. This has become a long-term wintering spot particularly for Canadians, USAers, and Europeans with some guests staying for months every winter. Everyone is like family and there is no shortage of recommendations for sights and eating spots; one couple called to get us their special table overlooking the coast at one of their favorite restaurants for our last eveing - breathtaking. This place is a real value.

Our son and future daughter-in-law plus our future in-laws stayed here for one fabulous week. It is two doors from our winter 1 bedroom apartment The service is amazing, the grounds breath-taking, the rooms immaculate, and all with a Mexican touch and flair. Everyday the beds were done with flowers and swans (towels) etc. You can eat at their charming restaurant or sip a margarita at the bar. You are just steps from Playa la Ropa. Lovely pool, balconies off your room. There are rooms available with kitchenettes if you are looking for something longer term. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Look for a view of the pool.
