“A warm place with no memory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2006

The Tim Robbins character in the Shawshank Redemption dreams of "...warm place with no memory" and escapes to a beach in Mexico called Zihuatanejo. I have been to Zihuatanejo several times and it represents for me, like the character in the film, a place for escape from all of the distractions of our everyday life. An opportunity to encounter beauty and wonder again. I found an excellent bunglaow with Casa Loma, where I could relax, enjoy the beautiful playa la ropa beach and escape. It is true that the rooms are located next to each other and other's voices can be heard. Also, it is true that these are not luxury bungalows, but this did not affect the peace I found at this place. The rooms possess a wonderful simplicity. They are adjoined by a lounging area that includes a kitchen and eating area. There is amply space to relax in a hammock or in the lounging area and escape with a book. The bungalow is serviced by a kind staff that is extremely helpful (thank you Alfredo). I highly recommend these bungalows if you want to escape, would like place where you experience simplicy, cook some mexican dishes, and be embedded with other locals who also enjoy the area's beauty.

We thought we would be staying at a romantic little bungalow in Zihuatanejo. We did our research on the web and found the site for Casa Loma Bungalows. Looked lovely and even had an article from Travel and Leisure saying that Lauren Hutton had stayed there. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The "private" bungalow is really part of a four room row of apartments which are generally run down and shabby. Half of the bungalow is outside, with neighbors on either side. When anyone in an adjoining room talks, it is as if they are there with you. Absolutely NO PRIVACY whatsoever! There was a street light outside which shined directly into the room as well. Because the owner demands payment in full up front, there is no recourse if you are dissatisfied, and you are simply out of luck. Don't be fooled by the price $70.00 per night in high season. This place is not worth even that. We ended up at Catalina Beach Resort and loved it. Saved the vacation.
