“Beautiful, Peaceful, relaxing, place to get away from it all!”
Reviewed 22 January 2013 via mobile

Blanca and Manuel couldn't be more accommodating. They just hired a new chef whom we found excellent!
This was our third visit and its better every year!
If you like to sleep with the sound of surf and awake to the chatter of birds and have miles of pristine beach to walk; sample the waves or laze in the pool, this is what you're looking for.

We spent the last week of December at Solecito and had a wonderful vacation. The grounds are beautiful, our bungalow was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Contrary to what a few reviews have said, because of the site layout, it doesn't really matter what bungalow you have because all have good sight lines to the ocean. Blanca and Manuel were really gracious hosts - they struck a nice balance between being available and checking if all was well versus letting us enjoy the beauty and quiet of their beautiful place on Playa Blanca (which if you don't know, is a fantastic beach). They have recently brought on a new chef, Abel, and we enjoyed some of the best meals we have ever eaten anywhere thanks to his expertise. All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing, rejuvenating week in paradise.

My husband and I have been going to Solecito for 6 years, and we intend to keep going back. The beach is 14 miles of clean white sand ... and without high-rises! The bay is protected enough that you could go swimming in it (when its calm). The birdlife is wonderful to watch, and we almost always spot a whale in the bay.

The casitas, which are either right on the ocean (!) or with a clear view of it, are roomy and tastefully designed. It's wonderful to have an equipped kitchen, roomy bedroom and a wide terrace overlooking the ocean. It's astonishing how cheap it is, considering what you get.

The grounds are simply gorgeous. And did I mention the pool?

The staff is lovely, and the one negative review I see here is so out of character I can't help but wonder what it was about. Manuel and Blanca bend over backwards to make their guests comfortable.

And one other thing: it's safe.

Room Tip: If you want to be right on the beach, choose #1 or #5. #5 has a wide vista and is our favourite. We...

Many of our friends recommended this place for a weekend getaway and we were not disappointed, it's very clean, comfortable, not over-the-top but just right for us. The owner, Blanca, gave us great service, she kept phoning us to make sure we weren't lost and she stayed up until 11pm to receive us at the gate. We stayed in Bungalow #1 which is right on the beach, gorgeous sunsets at night and if you love listening to the waves, you must stay in this bungalow. I could not sleep as the waves were quite loud and appeared to sound as if they were coming into our bungalow! We were the only other people besides the No. 5 bungalow so it was nice to have the whole place to ourselves. My husband was a little cranky not to have tv, internet, etc. but I loved the quietness, the long walks on the beach, a very clean and uncluttered beach, no seaweed although my hubby did get stung by a jellyfish. Breakfast was supplied by Solecito, simple eggs however you like with fruit and fresh juice or coffee. We enjoyed walking down to the restaurants on the beach for dinners, excellent fresh grilled fish "a la talla", fresh coconuts, seafood soup, fried bananas with cream. We also really enjoyed massages on the beach by Juanita.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for bungalow no. 1 or 5

We’ve been coming to Solecito since it was built 6 years ago and it is our favorite destination in Zihuatanejo. In fact we’ve kinda kept it a secret, for fear of losing our ability to get a reservation. But it’s time to share this gem. Solecito is perfect for a quiet, completely relaxed getaway. It doesn’t take long to lose track of what day it is as you swing in the hammock, cool breezes blowing in off the Pacific, rustling the palm trees overhead. Owners, Manuel and Blanca are really friendly and responsive and take great pride in the design, comfort and quality of their perfect little paradise.

Barra de Potosi is a secluded, idyllic, pristine, gently curving beach, several miles long -- the kind you dream about but rarely ever find. And, Solecito, set directly on the beach, is the best place to stay in Barra. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil, immaculately maintained and there are a variety of accommodation from bungalows (kitchen, bath, bedroom, patio (with hammock, tables, chairs, loungers) to rooms with balconies. There is a lovely pool and restaurant at pool side that serves three meals a day. Manuel and Blanca, the owner/managers, are delightful, helpful and attentive. If you are looking for beauty, tranquility and first rate accommodations and do not require night clubs and souvenir shops, come to Solecito.

We visited Barra de Potosi in 2009 and while walking the beach discovered Solecito. When we decided to return in January 2011, we booked 2 weeks there. How do you describe a place that is perfect. Beautiful gardens, a beach that goes on and on, and bungalows that are beautifully maintained. Blanca, Manuel and their staff were friendly , helpful and just plan nice.
They will prepare meals for you on request and we had a wonderful dinner one night served in the garden. Barra is a small fishing village that you can walk to from Solecito. You can get most of the things you need, or take a 20 minute trip into Zihut for additional items. If you're looking for big hotels, nightlife and fancy restaurants don't go to Solecito in Barra de Potosi. If you truly want a wonderful experience, friendly people, gorgeous scenery and beach this is your place. It really lets you unwind and totally relax. We loved it there so much we've already booked a trip for next year. A wonderful place.
