My husband and I absolutely loved this place. The service and food in the restaurant was top shelf. Rooms very clean, with beautiful views. We could not say anything bad about this place and hope to be back next year!! Calgary Canada

Room Tip: We stayed in of the top two rooms but next time will save the extra $100 we spent each night for one...

My husband and I have not been on a vacation in 6 or 7 years. It was my choice to go to Amuleto, it was the best choice ever! The food is to die for, the service the best ever we thought St Bart's
was great but Amuleto makes you never want to leave.

Room Tip: Our room was the Main Suite One, it was a room you never want to leave.

Just spent another week at my favorite hotel in the world. As very experienced travelers, my wife and I know good service when we get it. The experience at Amuleto is exceptional. The staff is always available and extremely accomidating while never obtrusive. That's not easy to do, but they always seem to be there when you need them. That speaks to how well they have been trained. Ricardo and Neglia have done a wonderful job maintaining the high quality of this property. Neglia, having trained in some of the most prestigious culinary schools in the world, is constantly improving and fine-tuning the menu at the restaurant. The views are breathtaking, the weather is always wonderful, and I come home totally relaxed and rejuvenated. I'll be anxiously anticipating my next trip there later this winter

Planning our trip to Amuleto we read all the reviews and we were like sure, sure. Why don't these people ever leave the hotel? When we you get there you will know why. In all our worldwide travels , we have never experienced such a level of helpful, friendly, relaxed service. Not the slightest bit pretentious. Amuleto is the most peaceful place, you can just relax and enjoy the tranquility. You hear Vivianna laughing and Arturo singing, the birds chirping and the gentle lap of the infinity pool. They have only six rooms and we met the most amazing people there. The food is fresh and lovingly prepared. Do yourself a favor and book SEVERAL days at Amuleto. You will return home rejuvenated with a big smile on your face!!

Room Tip: we loved main suite five

My wife and I have traveled all over Mexico and Europe as well as the states and this hotel is the best place we have ever stayed. We have been to some great places but this one tops them all. The setting is amazing; perched up on the side of a hill over looking the town of Zihuatanejo and the beautiful bay. We we arrive at this fantastic little gem of a hotel which is amazingly designed we were welcomed by Jacobe and given the red carpet treatment. The lobby is outside and located in a beautiful palapa overlooking the bay, Jacobe made us feel welcome by serving us some great margaritas and a plate of totopos (tortilla chips) and guacamole. While we enjoyed these pickings our bags were brought down to our room by the singing Arturo Lopz. The lobby is also the dining room and it looks out over one of the most amazing blue vanishing edge pools that we have ever had the pleasure of hanging out in. Magical. For our first night we stayed in room #3 for the first night and then room #5 for the rest of the week. Room #3 is a very nice room located just below the pool, it doesn't have a plunge pool but it is very nice with an amazing bed, a great little patio with a nice hammock to hang out in and the views are fantastic. The next night we up graded to Room #5 which is just to the right of the main pool. Our new room had a great big bedroom, amazing bathroom with a really cool shower that comes out of a log. There is a very nice little terrace with a hammock in front of the bedroom and then there is a great plunge pool in the shade of some palm trees with fantastic views overlooking the bay.
The service is fantastic, everyone was very friendly and helpful, Viviana was very nice and brought us a wonderful breakfast every morning and helped us arrange for a massage and whatever else we needed. We ate most of our meals at the resort because the food is fantastic and once we sampled everything on the menu our waiter, Isidero offered to make anything else that we wanted. Everybody was just amazing.
When we read about Amuleto before arriving we noticed that most people just stayed at the resort, we thought that this was crazy but when we arrived and got into the mood of this magical place we stayed too. We walked to town everyday and took long walks on the Playa La Ropa and over to Playa Las Gatas but truthfully we felt that the best place to be was at Amuleto. We are already planning to return again next year.

Room Tip: Room #5 was really nice with a great plunge pool and fantastic views, very private and close to the...

As a frequent traveler this could be one of the best resorts I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. If you want a quiet, relaxing, extremely personal experience this is the place for you, if you want a large resort go up to Ixatapa as this is like living at a private villa for the weekend. First Ricardo runs a great property, he is always checking in on guests and you can tell his staff just loves working there. I stayed in Suite 1 and the one comment I will have is that it is exposed to nature, with an outside bathroom you need to be comfortable with the occasional bug or lizard. Outside of that the room is amazing, views incredible, breakfast every morning really makes the stay and is one of the best meals we had. Food at the property was great, they make anything you want on or off the menu. I will be booking a return trip soon, the staff makes you feel right at home.

Room Tip: Suite 1 and Papala are the best

If you are looking for a resort experience (large/multiple pools, social activities, party atmosphere, etc.), do not stay here. If you are looking for a private retreat that feels like you are staying in one of your very wealthy friends' mountain compound, this is a perfect place for you. We stayed in Suite #1, and honestly, there was little reason to leave our suite. Great view, infinity pool, two-person hammock, and great room service. Most of the property is "open air", which can be a problem in warmer months. We were there at the end of Oct., which is still pretty warm. If you need an air conditioned bathroom, don't stay in Suite 1. Conversely, the "openness" is also part of what makes this place unique and great. Our suite was also very private. Secluded and quite, which was excellent. A great place for couples. I would stay here again.
