Villa Mexicana 2017
Mar 13 2017
Villa Mexicana is a lovely hotel on Playa La Ropa, one of the most fantastic beaches in Mxico. The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to be helpful, just as we have learned to expect in Zihuatanejo. There was only one downside to our entire stay, and that was the free frinks from noon to 10:30 p.m. daily, which was included in our and obviously many fellow guests' packages. It attracted what my wife and I referred to as the middle-aged spring break crowd. Beginning early in the afternoon and continuing on until at least dinner time (sometimes well after) the revelers would be feeling their alcohol and it would be loud, loud in the main pool area and sometimes under the large gazebo-palapa near the restaurant. We are not teetotalers by any means, yet we felt as if we could just as well have been at Cancn some days. We have chosen to vacation in Zihuatanejo to get away from noise and all-inclusives, and this year's experience sometimes came close to both. I hope the management of AppleVacations and Villa Mexicana will take the free drinks feature off their packages next year.

My trip to Villa Mexicana in Zihuatanejo Mexico
Mar 14 2016
Very disppointed with Appel Vacations, I had requested a ocean view room 5 months prior to arrival and did not get one. I was told by the hotel manager that is wasn't request by Apple vac. The hotel finally gave me one two days later. At check out I was informed that I had to pay a $20.00 per nite upcharge. I would have paid this when I booked with Apple prior if I have known. If I ever go through Apple Vac again to, I would need to be assured this would happen and get the room I requested

affordable hotel situated right on the best beach - La Ropa. Many good eating spots in Zihuatanejo with $4.00 cab rides each way. The hotel staff is excellent and deserve praise for their efforts. Jose Luis is a very helpful person whether he is working the front desk or kitchen duties. But he is just one example of the friendly staff at Villa Mexicana. Will return to this hotel in the future.

This was my 25th trip with Apple and I am always so pleased with the simplicity of an Apple Vacation. The price was very good and the direct flights with no luggage fees is such an advantage.

Hotel Villa Mexicana

When wanting the best of Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo choose Hotel Villa Mexicana. T excels in friendliness, service, comfort, and beach. Once you stay, you leave knowing you will return and be greeted by guests you met last year. That says more than words.

Zihuatanejo is still my favorite

The location on La Ropa beach is fabulous. We paid $20/night extra for the ocean view-- more than worth it. The breakfast very good. Even during busy Semana Santa (Easter week) we enjoyed the ambiance. Villa Mexicana is a bit plain on the outside but comfy enough on the inside. Maid service was excellent.

The Villa Mexicana Zihuatanejo is pretty much as described by TripAdvisor. Nothing fancy, but very nice. We had to pay an up-charge of $20/day for an Ocean View room. Rated most things as good, but in the end rated the experience as excellent. The included breakfast was good and very handy. Nice location on La Ropa Beach. Beds were firm but comfortable for us. No refrigerator in the room is our biggest complaint. We would go again next time in Zihuatanejo, and that will probably be soon.

Villa Mexicana is a small, quiet and comfortable place to stay
Mar 10 2014
We have been staying at Villa mexicana for 12 years, took two years off in early 2000's when they were renovating the place. We absolutely love the hotel, it is small and fairly quite and there are so many repeat customers that is is like a family reunion there every year! It is located in a prime spot on Playa la Ropa with easy access to shops, restaraunts and transportation. We will continue to go back and stay there.

This is our 4th time staying here! We stayed in an upstairs ocean front room. Ours was recently remodeled and nice. Rooms were clean, air conditioned and smelled good. Elloisa is an excellent front desk person to deal with! The downer is that they have gone to an all inclusive drinks in the afternoon/ I has 2 sodas all week and its built into the higher room prices. i noticed because they are free, not many were tipping the servers. These folks need to make a living too! Please be more considerate. I know you would tip if the billed you. I hope the policy will change back to those that drink pay.

Can’t wait to visit again

This place was fantastic! We will be back some day for sure. People were great, food was great, room was great, beach was great. Find Jorge Soltera on the beach for excellent sunset cruise and island trips. Prices were very reasonable and the hotel was clean and friendly.

Not as family oriented as we had hoped

It seemed nice when we arrived! But no kids to speak of for a place rated good for families. That’s fine - we are here for one another not others so that is ok - but the all inclusive aspect is definitely affecting our stay. Everyone is drunk by 3pm, some people even bringing their own 1 litre cups and demanding alcohol be served in those. Forget non smoking. The kids and I have had to leave the area repeatedly due to people smoking, and after four complaints to three different front desk staff it isn’t improving at all. People are also bringing their own loud, obnoxious music, and again the hotel is doing nothing to maintain an atmosphere enjoyable for all (I’ve only complained about the music once so far). We have another week here and I am hoping it improves because right now it isn’t going as I had expected from the reviews. I will update this review when we leave (6 days into a 12 day stay). Most of the staff are lovely (noted: Lily, Javier, all the housekeeping staff are great); they do put up with a lot of guests being particularly unkind to them and maintain their grace well. The hotel itself is lovely and in a lovely location. Looks like the pics.

Easy nonstop flight with Volaris, checked into VM, was on the beach by 12:30. Very pleased with room, second floor, ocean view. Service, as always (7 year run) is outstanding. Grounds, pool and room super clean. Beach perfect, water temps ideal for me and I am kind of a warm vs cold fan. Waves gentle. Plenty of chairs in the shade. We have never been here this early in the season and I know I will long to be somewhere warm come February, however, a few pluses to late November versus January February. Less crowded, more room to spread out. Plane not packed, again you could spread out. We have only been here two days and already there are standout servers that I want to compliment. Lili, Jose, Francisco, Javier, Hijo,Jared, Casir and Claudia (who kindly returned my email with room request). Only downside, they have begun playing music on the beach. I asked the first day that it be turned off (disco/ rap) and they turned it off. Today however, classical music playing. Unobtrusive but still a little annoying for those of us desiring nothing but the sound of the graceful waves and chatter of happy guests! Other than the addition of music it is perfection!!!!! Maggi and Kevin

Don't plan on returning at this price

AI have stayed at the Villa Mexicana for two years in a row and was very happy after my first stay but this year the rates have increased and doubled in my case. I stayed for a week in mid October and paid 200$ dollars per night, completely ridiculous considering that breakfast wasn't even included. This location is perfect and the staff is very nice, the food is great but these changes which they say are because you have a package with drinks included is not well thought of as I did not order one drink, I don't need this service and even if I did, it wouldn't make up for the high cost of the rooms. I read a review from a couple of customers who stayed in May and had the same comments about the prices and the response from the hotel was that they were going to make changes, well 6 months later there were no changes, prices doubles even in low season, not worth it.
