This is almost as enchanting as any of Zihua's luxury hotels—and at a price that won't haunt you when you get home. Rooms and services aren't extravagant, but there are many such touches, from the lobby's stone floor and wicker ceiling to the staircases that wander the lush cliff-side grounds. Rooms have Talavera ceramic sinks in wooden surrounds, carved doors and furnishings from Michoacán, molded plastic bathtubs, and large balconies with hammocks; most have fabulous
bay views. Situated on the beach, the stone-and-concrete-floored Bistro del Mar offers simple, delicious Mediterranean food, a wonderful view, and a welcome breeze.
