Every November, we head south to Zihuatanejo's Villa Mexicana for a 2 week stay. The strangest thing is we are not the kind of travelers that go back to same place all the time, but this place has converted us. Villa Mexicana is right on the best beach in Zihua, LaRopa, which has a lot of great places to eat...

It's only negative is the hard mattress....a small place, motel like...one level, right on the beach and right next to a lovely infinity pool. My vacation location of choice, hands down. Would skip all the fancy resorts for this place. Great staff, restaurant very close and the best cheesy nachos by far. Highly recommend!!

Our fourth visit and the hotel is as wonderful as always. I sure sign of a very good hotel is the staff, and this hotel is able to maintain the same wonder staff year after year. We always get a Welcome Home", as soon as we arrive. The minute you arrive you know you made the right choice of hotels....

Villa Mexicana offers a great experience for people who enjoy a quiet beach hotel. We found most of the guests friendly, and all of the staff outstanding. This year - and last year - we found part of our stay was spoiled somewhat by a group of extended family (last year) and friends (this year). Some people are better of...

I didn’t know what to expect when we booked this hotel. I usually stay at a very small, very local place and this was a “regular” hotel. I was ready to be critical but, as it turned out, I really enjoyed myself. In the future, if I can’t get into my local digs, I’ll book this hotel again in a...

This is a Mexican hotel, as opposed to an American-style resort, and that is its charm. That and it's unbeatable beach front location. If you are expecting instant service and constant, hovering attention from the staff, you'd be better off elsewhere. But if you have time to appreciate the unaffected charm and sincere care of the staff you'll end up...

Love this place because it doesnt have that resort feeling so much like other places in Ixtapa. Traditional food. Nice pool and beach club. Awesome coconut shrimp! You have to try them. Panuchos Tulum as delicious as well.

I stayed at Villa Mexicana for a week during a relaxing vacation with my cousin. The hotel is charming, with colorful tile fountains and terra cotta details. It's also quite minimal, meaning no frills. The rooms are quaint and don't have much to them, but you don't really need much. This hotel is right on the beach, with a large...
