Just returned from Zijhua and can report that everything the other reviewers have said is true--and then some. Close up and in person, it's even better than the photos were able to capture. This is a chic, sophisticated, contemporary, spanking new 'boutique' hotel/B & B/retreat with 'thisclose' bay views and unbelievably affordable prices. Yet it's far more intimate and peaceful a setting, nestled on the hillside, than the many hotels & condo's that are built one-on-top-of-the-other.
Each suite feels like it's own private oasis, configured to offer great views no matter which way you turn, owing to the quality, design-savvy construction experience of one of its owners. It is obvious that every detail has been carefully overseen, from its top of the line alabaster fixtures and leather chairs down to the hand-stitched natural coco mats greeting you at the entrance to each suite. With it's soft, linen-like neutral fabrics, elegantly designed built-in's and uncluttered feel, smart wooden detailing with plenty of storage space to spread out in, impeccable bathrooms (many with indulgent outdoor showers), sun-dappled verandas shaded by palapa roofs --perfect for lounging or reading lazily in hammocks during the noonday heat, and its romantic outdoor bar for drinks at sunset--just an arm's length away from the inviting infinity pool overlooking the bay-- this unique spot is one of those rare finds that I almost hesitate even sharing.
The owners are warm and hospitable, their drinks strong, the bar food delicious. The extra-wide panoramic view of the bay--larger than most--with its twinkle of Zihuatenejo's lights as the sun goes down-- is just so magical, you never want to turn in for the night--or leave Zihua! Right now, it's still the undiscovered deal of the season, but I fear, won't remain so for too long.
