Wonderful condo located a hop, skip & a jump away from many shops, a golf course, many authentic cultural food and (if such is your taste) Westernized food restaurants. Beach is literally right out the door! Watch the sunrise inland, and the sunset oceanside!! Warm, wonderful people to meet. Feel like family at the Tesoro!!! ¡México, tiene una parte de mi corazón!
Condo has been recently updated and the facelift makes it comfortable, with functioning amenities and air conditioning which works well. It has great access to local restaurants/shops, as well as taxi and bus access to Zihuatanejo and tourist sights.
As long as you keep in mind that the condo is in a good 3 star facility you will likely be very happy here. We enjoyed great availability of facilities and beach/pool chairs etc. during the week. The weekends were much busier, with the Mexican nationals coming in Friday and leaving Sunday. The floors were recently refinished and were as clean as possible (grout had imbedded discoloration) without having to replace all. The kitchen was fully functional with enough utensils and cooking implements to get by with. The beds were extremely firm, but given they were a type of memory foam, were not uncomfortable. Not the temperpedic type I am used to at home, but we woke up in the morning not feeling any ill effects.
You will likely be very happy if you keep in mind that you are in Mexico and that this is not a 5 star resort! We thought it was a good value during our family spring break.
Axel was friendly and accommodating, and provided a water cooler which we could buy refills from the downstairs restaurant. My only suggestion would be to both confirm housekeeping details before you book, and again on arrival, when Axel shows you around (Before arrival Axel confirmed by email that housekeeping was usually 3 times per week, but he would provide service daily, and beach towel laundering in the middle of each week. On arrival we were told housekeeping was only 2 times per week. Then during our 15 day stay, housekeeping came by only twice).
I decided it was a good idea to leave a review to help the next traveller make their accommodation choice. The condo was clean, maid service twice a week was very nice,2-bathrooms was nice, kitchen had all the dishes and appliances we needed, property manager-Axel was friendly and wanted to know how we enjoyed our stay.
Now to the Cons: we had to carry around the keys to the condo-regular kind and the A/C unit had to be turned on with a key. And the bizarre thing was both were connected with a lock and attached to a lanyard. It was awkward to figure out how to carry this item when going for a walk on the beach or going to town for dinner every night. Not sure in what era they would have had an idea to attach a lock to your keys. So when we left the condo the A/C was always off. The patio door didn't lock, but thankfully we were on the 5th floor so don't think anyone could have come in from the outside.
The master bed in this unit is as hard as the tile floor. What a shock that was to us after having been told that the room had been reno'd last year when the hotel rooms were reno'd.We thought perhaps the TV's had been changed cause not sure what else looked new.
The WIFI costs extra. It was very expensive. Other resorts we've stayed at always had that included in the room rental. This resort in my opinion wouldn't rate higher than a 3* whereas we've only stayed at 5* resorts before.
Wristbands are mandatory and you have to pay for them as well. They promise you'll get a refund at the end of your stay but we never did.
We had a sewer smell each morning from both bathrooms,the microwave handle was broken off, the patio furniture is nothing like posted here.The resort doesn't have enough chairs at the beach for all the guests so if you aren't there to reserve by 9am chances are you won't get a chair, unless you take other people's reserved chairs like what happened to us a few times.
If you are ok with staying at a place where people come and go every few days then this might be the resort for you.
