Villa Mexicana 2017
Mar 13 2017
Villa Mexicana is a lovely hotel on Playa La Ropa, one of the most fantastic beaches in México. 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 Cancún 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.

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

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.

I visit Zihuatanejo nearly every year. For the last 5 years, I've always stayed at Villa Mexicana. Great rooms, Wonderful Staff, Best Location ! We walked the beach each morning, got a massage on the beach every day except arrival day. I love Playa La Ropa.

Nice hotel, but they're trying too hard to be a resort.

I'll start off by saying that I dislike resorts. I really do. I stay in smaller hotels to avoid the "canned vacation" feel. Well, the first thing that happens when you check into Villa Mexicana is they slap a fluorescent bracelet on your wrist. Hmm. We were told that we couldn't enter the property without them, but I ripped mine off on day 2 due to a rash that was forming and no one ever said anything (and I was still able to partake in the included drinks package.) When we checked in, we were told that the room tier we had reserved was not available (this mirrored our experience earlier that week with sister hotel Irma.) I'm not sure if it was because we were staying less than a week or because we booked through Sunwing or if it was just unfortunate luck, but whatever. Again, we were told that we could likely move to a better room the next day, but since we ended up spending most of our time down the beach with friends, we didn't bother. Our room was one of the ones near the check-in desk that opens up to a little rectangle of grass. No view, no balcony/porch, but since we were only there for 4 nights, it wasn't a huge deal. I wouldn't want to stay there for an extended period of time. The room itself was decent. Comfy beds, a good shower and we only saw 1 cockroach (a record for Mexico, I think!) The A/C had to be on though, or else the air was completely stagnant. That was a bit of a shame. The restaurant, Dona Prudencia, is very good. I've eaten there in the past and it is always a stop on our annual beach "pub" crawl. The pool is lovely and was never overly crowded while we were there. The impossible thing was getting a front row beach chair. One morning I even went out at 5am and every chair but 1 had a towel on it already. The worst part is that most of the chairs sat empty for most (or all) of the day. That's quite unfair to those who actually want to use the chairs. Long story short, no major complaints with this hotel, which is on, in my opinion, the nicest beach in the region.

Another great stay

We usually stay here in November but wanted to try June the off season (6-9 thru 6-16). Check in went smooth and we upgraded to ocean view room for 285 peso @ night. Room 1410 had a great view. Being off season the hotel was like a ghost town, maybe 5 or 6 rooms rented. The restaurant was closed,they were in the process of putting on a new roof, and should be open by the end of June, but still served food on the paved patio area. Service was outstanding, and the location on Playa La Ropa is the best. See you in November....

Mrs. B and I have been staying here for ten tears and have never been disappointed. The entire staff is warm and friendly, always helpful, always working. Keep in mind when you don't see many reviews, that this hotel is visited by mostly Mexican Citizens who do not use Tripadvisor often. That being said we run into the same people each year, and, now we can communicate better with our new found friends. All the employees speak English, so, no communication problems. The hotel is spotless, well maintained, and that includes the fantastic rooms. When you step outside your room one of the three pools are steps away. The beautiful beach (La Ropa) is about 20 feet from your chair. There are plenty of beach chairs that are very comfortable. The restaurant, Dona Prudentia, is excellent so we rarely went out to other places in our two weeks at Villa. Alcoholic drinks are included and they don't skimp on the liquor. Remember to tip the servers as a tip (Propino) is not included. We actually saw people order the included breakfast and just walk away without tipping. Terrible. We are already making our plans to return to this gem next year.

Great location
