My husband and I spent five nights at Heven and it's aptly named. I'm not that much of a pool person; I prefer the beach if there is one. But this pool!!! It's small but unbelievably relaxing and with a view to die for. Hang on to the edge and look out over the ocean and your consciousness floats off to la la land. Victor, the host and owner, is a remarkably kind and sweet man who will help you with whatever needs arise. And the rest of the staff are wonderful and responsive. The breakfast was consistently delicious every single morning and you just cannot beat the view from the terrace. It was a magical few days in paradise and I would definitely do it again. Alerts: Yes, there is nudity so, if that bothers you.... well, then you don't belong in Zipolite to begin with. And it is a long walk to "town" so if you have trouble with stairs or exercise, you might want to reconsider. But I guarantee that it's worth it and you might actually be in better shape when you leave than when you arrived. I highly recommend this hotel. Thank you, Victor!!!! I'll be dreaming of Heven for a very long time.

Victor and Andrea, partners and designer and architect from Mexico and Italy have built your own heaven right in Zipolite Mi casa es su casa is the way they run their inn which is so comfortable (beds are huge and the best) and for those who love design full of details. And then there are the views! This and the beauty of the location and with Zipolite’s beaches and cafes a short and very interesting walk away. And you will feel very safe. Some rooms you have full kitchen you can really cook in. Each room or suite has its own unique design. Lots of details for those who love good design. These guys are living their dream and working hard to make your dream vacation one in the same. And did I mention Heven is clothing optional and gay friendly. Stay a week if you can or more. Heven and Zipolite are as close to a perfect “sun” holiday as I have found. I will return.

We have been to Heven on January 25th, the only thing we regret is that our stay was too short !! The room are very clean and well design, bed very comfortable and the two owners are very nice, they are always trying to make you comfortable. The view is simply Fantastic !! The pool is very nice and clean and this place was so far the best place we have been in Zipolite, even in Mexico !! We were travelling with young baby and they did everything to help us having a good stay ! We strongly recommend this place, it s the best view you will have on the Ocean. The bed are high so ou can see the sea, from your bed you can hear the wave. We will definitly come back to this place.

Heven really is as beautiful as all the pictures suggest. A hillside location and spectacular views of the "playa de camarones" combined with super charming hosts and quick walking access to lovely Zipolite make this place a real charmer for anyone looking to get away and enjoy the relaxed, naturist vibe of the area.

The place was clearly a labor of love for the owners, and their dedication to guests shines through in every regard. The one and only nit is the bathrooms: every room is quite spacious, but bathrooms and showers are entirely open to the room. In many rooms, you can't help but see the toilet from your bed (there is no door). If you need or value any privacy while using the toilet or the shower, this is not the place for you.

We made do by asking each other to leave when we needed to use the bathroom. It's not a huge deal, but it's a needlessly unusual design (there is plenty of space) and detracts from what is otherwise an amazingly beautiful place and a hidden gem.

I first need to mention getting to Zipolite is no cake walk, it's miles and miles of windy road, but then, who ever said getting to Heven would be easy!
Zipolite is a wonderful place to escape, to relax and enjoy warm sunshine, delicious restaurants and miles of beautiful beaches. We arrived in Zipolite the first part of March with all of that in mind and a one week reservation at a place called Heven !
It didn't take long to feel that Heven was where we wanted to be!
We absolutely loved our accommodation!
Victor, a most gracious and attentive host heads a great team that meet our every need throughout the week, as well, prepared and served a delicious breakfast each morning.
Our large impeccably clean and comfortable room was beautifully appointed with beautiful tile decoration, a comfortable king bed, sitting room, even lovely little kitchenette that was great for snacking mid day or preparing a beach picnic!, ALL OF THIS including a beautiful view to the sea, for a most affordable rate!
HEVEN IS certainly GOOD VALUE and just as one would expect -5 STAR!

Perched on the top of a hill in this great little town called Zipolite you immediately feel like you have arrived at a very very special Villa. One of the first things we noticed were the views of the ocean and Roca Blanca. The owners Victor and Andrea spared no detail, including every view the Villa would have. The property is very clean and meticulously maintained. Bravo!

The rooms are all beautiful and even the smaller one "El Ebano" is spacious. We had more than enough room and the view from our King size pillow top bed was absolutely stunning. The shower in El Ebano was big and spacious and encourages you to shower together adding to the overall romantic vibe of Heven. A very beautiful bathroom sink, a small fridge, utensils and plates, fresh cold water, a room safe, mosquito coils, repellent plug ins...they have thought of every detail. We immediately felt at home...and in love with this place.

From the minute we arrived to the moment we left, Victor, Andrea, and the wonderful staff of 3 were very attentive. Before I knew it our luggage was delivered from the Taxi to our room. Victor gave us a detailed view guide from his balcony, pointing out special places to eat in Zipolite, describing the overall area, giving us tips on beach spots, showing us the property and our room. He even makes sure each set of room keys has a working mini flashlight for venturing out at night! Beach towels on the bed and even a beach umbrella! Again...they have thought of every detail!

The villa has such an intimate atmosphere that it creates a feeling of being among family. We got to know other guests right away while lounging in the clothing optional infinity pool. We also had an opportunity to spend time with Victor and Andrea What an amazing couple. Continental breakfast is provided daily, however calling this breakfast "continental" doesn't do it justice. Delicious and plenty of options. If you want to try something local....you must stroll down to "Orale Cafe"...what a treat on our last day.

Of special note: We were treated to a benefit concert for TerreXtra. TerreXtra is a special effort of volunteers working hard to keep Zipolite clean and healthy, specially all of its beautiful animals. All of Zipolite's "whos whos" arrived in casual chic and we all enjoyed great music by a canadian singer, great drinks, and an amazing star lit night. Victor...THANK YOU for including your guests in this special fundraiser. We are dog lovers and it touched our hearts...in more ways than you yet realize.

Heven...it is the perfect place to be in love, to fall in love, or to fall in love all over again. The perfect place to go and get away from it all and enjoy life, rest, and relaxation. The perfect place to feel like you have arrived....in Heaven.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending a month with Victor and Andrea at their new little hotel. It is a bit of Mediterrean with European and a little Mexican all mixed in to a beautiful recipe for pleasure. They designed, created and built their now home with lots of care and thought. Now that it is completed they continue their dream with treating their guests with the same inspiration. They are the most giving and willing to please hosts that we have met in our travels. If we needed anything to make our stay that little more enjoyable (there wasn't much to perfect) they were there to make it happen.
We have been to Zipolite and area for the past several years and this is the nicest place I have seen. The community is growing in Zipolite, Bahias de Camaron and the new places that are being built will have to live up to the standards that Victor and Andrea have set.
Thank you to the two of them and to all their little pets and for welcoming us into their family because that is how we felt.

We found this place of such stunning beauty that it was hard to leave. The terraced place holds many little almost hidden treasures, is very quiet although filled with a friendly humming life of the staff and cats and dogs. It is gay friendly and nudist accomodating. The room is spacious and very comfortable. The walk to the beach is easy and short, the view from the room fantastic. Thank you so much!
