“The World's Greatest Place!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Cancel all your other trips, and book yourself to Amuleto AS SON AS POSSIBLE. The perfect spot for couples who want to get away from the world and feel like you've won a million dollars! Ricardo (the owner) knows what he is doing and will do whatever it takes to give the best experience. Jacobo and Isidro were excellent and went above and beyond to help us whenever they could. AMAZING!

My husband and I love Zihuatanejo and have been many times. On our past visits we've gone to Amuleto for dinner and finally had a chance to stay for 4 nights this past February. Amuleto is an incredibly unique place to stay and so beautiful. The views are stunning from every spot in the hotel. The location way up on the side of the hill gives you such a difference perspective on the bay, Playa la Ropa and the town vs staying down near Playa la Ropa. We stayed in Suite #1 and loved everything about it from the large living area with lounge chairs, plunge pool and hammock, to the bedroom and the outdoor bathroom/shower. It was so cool to take a shower with a view of the bay. Service at the hotel is great and we loved the breakfasts which they brought to our room each morning. This is the type of place to go to when you want to disconnect, relax and enjoy spending time in your room because they have everything you could ask for.

Amuleto Hotel is a special place on the planet. Situated in a beautiful bay - Zihuatanejo -, the hotel is distinctive because it was thought to offer full integration with nature and provide privacy and relaxation. From the shower to the sea view, Amuleto seems a place outside of our modern times. I was impressed with the quality of services offered at the hotel and the excellent care teams. I decided to have my wedding at this hotel and it was a special moment in my life, I recommend everyone to marry admiring the sunset and tranquility of Zihuatanejo Amulet. It is impeccable!

Room Tip: Each room has its own peculiarities, but I recommend the main suite. Is a luxury!

Wanted to review this place for a while and looked at the other reviews and most of those reviews which are all excellent comments cover the bases of the outstanding service and location you will receive here. I would add this hotel I would consider a romantic hotel for couples not very fun or entertaining for children. This part Mexico is slow paced relaxing not a big party town the hotel is located little out of the way, but cabs are relatively cheap. Looking for romantic getaway you can't lose with this hotel.

I recently joined TripAdvisor and wanted to review the places that we've stayed at over the years. The hubby and I decided to stay at Amuleto in June of 2007 for our honeymoon and even to this day I look back with only fond memories from such a beautiful boutique hotel. I'm so glad that we chose Amuleto instead of a bigger resort. When we stayed (for about 5 days), we pretty much had the hotel all to ourselves. We would get up and enjoy breakfast which consisted of fresh fruit, fresh bread with homemade jellies/nut butters and more often than not the chilaquiles for me (doesn't compare anywhere else). Then the hubby and I would swim our day away on the infinity pool. We only ventured out one day, because the service was so wonderful at the resort and we just enjoyed being lazy by the pool or by the infinity pool in our room. The service, food and atmosphere at Amuleto just can't be beat. I can't wait to return sometime in the future :)

Amuleto was a dream honeymoon. We had a representative from the hotel - Lucio R- pick us up from the airport and he was the friendliest and most helpful companion for the rest of our trip. If you knew Lucio, you knew everyone in Zihua. He took us kayaking the day after we arrived.

The views from our room were gorgeous; we never left the hotel and practically had two private pools since the public one was always free.

The breakfast was my favorite time of day- 4 course meal with a fruit plate, a basket full of homemade pastries, a freshly made smoothie, and the special of the day. All overlooking the bay... to die for.

We went in the summer so there were a good amount of flies (just when we got lunch out at the kayaking expedition) and mosquitos, but the hotel always stocks mosquito repellant and we could close our bedroom doors in the evening (and the room has air conditioning so it's never too hot).

My husband's favorite part was dialing 1 for the restaurant and requesting margaritas... in a minute we were relaxing on our sundeck, hammock, or pool with delicious margaritas in hand! The service was phenomenal - best we have ever gotten.

Muchos gracias Amuleto!

Two tired parents of two sweet little boys walked through the doors of Amuleto, took
one look at the view, and felt immediately relaxed...and stayed that way for 6 days. Our
experience at the beautiful Amuleto exceeded our expectations.

Service:

The staff was excellent. Lucio was warm, friendly, and eager to go above and beyond
to ensure our comfort and happiness. Jacobo was so professional and detail oriented,
giving us 5 star attention. Biby was cheerful, helpful and happy to assist in any way.
Juan ensured our dinners each night were perfect. Ramon, Arturo, and the rest of the
staff handled our luggage and cleaned the rooms so inconspicuously, we barely noticed
them at all, but greatly appreciated their work. We also both enjoyed an amazing inroom massage by Citlali. Each staff member gave us their undivided attention without
ever “interrupting” us. We’ve never experienced such a talented hotel staff.
We also had the pleasure of staying the same week as the owners. At first, we assumed
they were guests because of their relaxed style and enjoyment of the hotel. We soon
learned that they have a true love and passion for this piece of land, the view, the city of
Zihuatanejo, and their staff. It made us love being there even more.

The rooms:

We stayed 4 nights in Suite 1 and 2 nights in the Palapa.

Suite 1 was breathtaking. The room was secluded, bright, spacious, and designed so
that no matter what room you were in, you had a beautiful view of the bay. The pool,
hammock, outdoor shower and daybed were perfectly placed and provided different
areas of relaxation throughout the day. The bedroom stayed very cool and dry, which
was appreciated since we traveled during the hot and humid rainy season. Optional
black out curtains ensured we were able to get as much rest as possible.
The Palapa had its own beauty and charm. It’s ambiance was much darker and warmer
than Suite 1, giving it a romantic feel. The view from the bottom level (where the pool,
bedroom, and bathroom were) was less expansive, but the view from the private
overlook upstairs was one of the best on the property; the perfect place to enjoy our
morning coffee or late night dessert.

The food:

The highlight of our mornings was breakfast in our room. The first course spread of
fresh fruit, jams, muffins, croissants, fresh squeezed juices and coffee and the second
course of hot breakfast entrees were the perfect ways to start the day.
We also ate lunch and dinner several times at the hotel. Lunch was usually enjoyed
poolside. Chips and guacamole was our go-to mid day snack.

We loved the beautiful ambiance of the glowing pool, sunset, string lights, and upscale
settings at dinner. The food was delicious. Thinking back, we can’t remember a meal
we didn’t love. The ingredients were fresh and intriguing, and the presentation was
beautiful.

Activities:

While we enjoyed the absence of a tv in our room, we also appreciated that wifi was
available throughout the hotel. Because we were without our children, we loved being
able to view videos and photos we were sent each day as a way to keep in touch.

Several days, we walked down to the nearby beaches, one afternoon, we visited
downtown Zihuatanejo by taxi, and another day we enjoyed a beautiful kayaking trip
with Lucio to a nearby lagoon giving us an experience of local culture and gorgeous
views.

Most days, though, were happily spent at the hotel enjoying being husband and wife,
resting, and recharging for life at home with our sweet boys.
