Viceroy Zihuatanejo Review

The main draws are striking rooms with winning Mediterranean-Mexican architecture and the spectacular location on perfect Playa la Ropa. Paths meander through gardens, passing coconut palms and fountains en route to the beach. Rooms are artistically and individually designed with bright but not overpowering textiles and folk art; in some the adobe walls have been left white, while in others they've been painted pale shades of yellow or orange. All rooms have terraces or balconies; suites have private plunge pools. Service is downright deferential, with "beach butlers" delivering everything from sunscreen to pre-programmed iPods to your palapa.

    Beautiful and Romantic

    Spent 5 days here in Dec. 09. Wildly exceeded our expectations. Property was beautifully landscaped; rooms were very swanky, spotlessly clean and so well-cared for by the housekeeping staff. Beach and restaurants were first rate. I had a body treatment, a facial and a massage and they were all really wonderful. My husband used the gym and thought it was well appointed and very clean. Boutique has some cool stuff. The staff were all so warm and professional. But this hotel is not a bargain! The taxes alone will shock you. All in all, notwithstanding the price tag, it was one of the best vacations we've had. Didn't hurt that the weather was incomparable.....
