Pitahaya El Tamarindo Zihuatanejo Rental

2 reviews
Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Zihuatanejo, Pacific Coast
Pitahaya is a comfortable bedroom within the family complex of El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin in Zihuatanejo. It has a private bath, large closet, double bed, a/c, fan, independent access from the exterior, and shared use of a rooftop terrace overlooking La Ropa area. Basic weekly housekeeping is included.

The room has plenty of natural light and views over the palms and tropical vegetation of the La Ropa neighborhood.

The room is three levels above the main house, which itself slightly above street level, so there are several sets of exterior stairs interspersed with flat pathways to negotiate as you move through the garden from street to room level.

One level below the room is a partially palapa-thatched terrace with hammocks, table and chairs, free wifi, and splendid views of sunrise and sunset skies.

I am a long-time ZIH traveler and rate El Tamarindo's rooms and overall property very highly. Reasonable prices for a lean, quiet, comfortable, room, with no fuss and easy to coordinate communication on dates and rates. This room had a small fridge, coffee maker and few dishes and utensils for convenience, as well as 2 fans, and good AC (when needed). Tiled bath with shower. Common areas like breezy roof deck with several hammocks and well-tended gardens are nice, too. Safe and secure place to be, and just a 10 minute walk to ZIH's best beach, Playa La Ropa, a dozen or more area restaurants, or hop the bus (85 p) right out front or a taxi (50 p) to centro - which is just about a mile away.

5th Trip to Ixtapa and Zihua. As an architect, I appreciate the high luxurious structures easily found in Ixtapa, but after staying in Playa Del Ropa at El Tamarindo, my heart belongs to Zihua and the people. I could not have been more pleased with El Tamarindo. I was looking for clean, quiet, and a view. I got even more.....loved the upper terrace and the people from all over the world that would gather there for sunset.

Zihua is by far the richer experience with 5 Star restaurants such as Espuma and Tentaciones only a 10 minute walk away, or maybe more than a dozen restrauants nestled beach side at playa del ropa with a more traditional menu. I must mentione las gatas is a beach that you can walk from Playa Del Ropa to Las gatas in approx 20 minutes from El Tamarindo. By far my favorite beach side destination for the day. I went there no fewer than 8 of my 13 days in Zihua. Always to the restaurant called Otilias at the far end where it was quieter and there small...

Management response:

It was a pleasure to meet you, Branden, and to have you stay with us at El Tamarindo. Thanks for sharing your experiences in and enthusiasm for this wonderful and warm destination of Zihuatanejo. We hope to see you again soon!
