Fabulous location, cheerful bungalows, well-maintained, well-equipped kitchenette, wonderful hospitality, WiFi worked well. Great sense of privacy in each bungalow, yet the proprietor and staff are available when you need assistance - even repaired the suspension in my minivan!

This is a "best find" absolutely - Mark was great, Bamboo room clean and neat with fabulous, postcard views - pool beautiful and Mark a real stickler about getting the chemicals perfect and pool ready for guests after a large group previous to us - easy access to beach and town but place set up so you felt very private - would not look elsewhere for our next visit and his new place across street is equally impressive

I booked with Mark (owner/manager) and these bungalows for the Bamboo Room. It was an amazing bungalow with an absolutely amazing view of the beach. The rooms were clean with large beds and clean bathrooms. The main living and kitchen area is an open room with a hammock and over views the ocean. It is an amazing spot to just kick back and relax. I was travelling with a couple of my dads old business friends so for there own reasons we needed to change to a hotel. There is nothing wrong with the bungalow itself! So we told Mark we needed to change places and he was so nice that he actually took us around to places he knew that were good and fit the needs of the people i travelled with. He found us a different place and he did it out of his own good spirit. This shows how well the place is ran and how friendly the owners are. I would definitely come back and stay at this place over the other!

The coconut room has an excellent unobstructed view of the bay with its own small shaded terrace (with no railings)and personal hammock. Having coffee outside or in the breakfast nook was simply wonderful and relaxing. The a/c worked as well as the bathroom and kitchen. Mark has purified water available for you to chill in the refridgerator so you do not have to buy any. The pool was clean and refreashing but no umbrella. The flora around the place is kept very neat and is beautiful with the humming birds to the lizards. The walk to the beach was 72 steps or you can go down a very long sloped walkway as you are not really on the beach but then again, there are very few properties that are. Location is what sold us on staying there. You are only about a 7 minute walk from downtown so we went to town in the morning and came back after dinner and drank till about 6 and went back for dinner. The walkway to town is cement and was sort of a lovers lane. But do not let your guard down as a lady was mugged at 10 in the morning. Going at this time of the year is not crowed at all and allowed us to stay for 10 days at the lower offseason price. We honestly felt that we will come back because of the value and upkeep and quietness of the place. PS the other bungallows look good too but we recomend the coconut. Thank you Mark for a wonderful 30th anniversary vacation!

A good value for your peso. Also a great location to town, beaches, restaurants, etc. Not a luxury place, but private, comfortable and has a great view. Don't stay here if you like an all inclusive resort. This place has local flavor and Mark was a most amiable host.

We stayed at Bungalows La Madera for two weeks and truly enjoyed our stay. The bungalows have a beautiful ocean view, well appointed, daily cleaning service and you feel taken care of when you need the assistance. Mark, the manager and his terrific parents are wonderful hosts. The property is secure, quiet, only steps to the beach, walking distance to town and nicely landscaped. Wonderful to have a dip in the pool at the end of a hard day at the beach. As Bungalows La Madera has numerous steps, the property may be difficult for the handicapped or families with very young children and is not suited for folks who like to party late into the night. We will be back.

We found this little jewel of a place through Zihua Rob's website. Checked their archives & found that several people had posted their wonderful experiences there. This clinched it for us, especially after checking out the place's website & talking to the owner.

Our bungalow was awesome. The bed was comfy, the amenities (tv, fridge, coffee maker, microwave & blender) were just what we needed. The bathroom had a great shower with hot water & an artistic river rock mosaic on the floor . The infinity pool was clean & inviting. it was only a steps away from our bungalow & the other patrons respected the owner's request about quiet. The grounds were lovely with well-tended flowers, trees & walkways. The maids were very attentive & obtrusive; cleaning the room quickly & efficiently as if they didn't want to be in our way.

The front & rear entrances were gated with a keypad entry. The front gave you access to the street, taxis, & several restaurants within easy walking distance. Also, an easy walk into the main part of town. The rear allowed easy access to La Madera Beach via either a 24-hr lit walkway or several different stairways down to the beach. Then there was another lit footpath into town.

Also, there was a boogie board & a pair of kayaks available for any patron to use. We used the kayaks several times & enjoyed them immensely.

All in all, our vacation in Zihua was made even more pleasurable due to the wonderful accommodations. Thanks, Mark
