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
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.

A normal size room with two full beds. Working A/C. Flat-screen TV (that we never turned on). RIGHT ON THE BEACH. Very friendly staff. Firm mattresses (some people may say that they are too hard but we loved them - no back pain in the morning). You can take taxi if you want to go to the city center or you can walk (20 - 25 minutes walk). Clean beach and low waves. Pretty good food in the restaurant.

We liked Hotel Mexicana

Hotel Mexicana is a nice clean no frills hotel. The drinks in the bar are just ok, but the package comes with breakfast. You can order off the menu and there is plenty of variety. The beach here is fantastic! We would have liked it better if the rooms had refrigerators. All in all Villa Mexicana is a good value.

Pro's and con's this year

First the pro's: The staff, everyone of the workers are so nice and friendly, always have a smile and an hola! The location, can't get any closer to the beach! Con's: The price increase, we've stayed at Vm since 2009, we've seen the upgrades (painting, flat screen tv's, new tile in the showers, this year some new pool loungers and railings into the pools) about 5 years ago they started charging for oceanfront rooms, and last year they raised the nightly rates...We get it, rates need to go up at some point. Now they're going to raise them again, for what?? Same old matress', same old towels and bedding, no fridges,smelly air conditioners. I can't believe they can justify $180 a night, $1000 pesos a day for alcohol, $1000 pesos a day for breakfast...really?? We'd be better off not doing breakfast and buying a breakfast or two separately. And I feel bad for those who don't drink...yep they still pay that $1000 pesos a day for two!! MANY of us returning customers can't believe that they are pricing us right out of there, sad because I know that the staff really looks forward to our return! I'm afraid this was our last year at Vm...cheaper accommodations elsewhere!!

Another trip to paradise

This is the first time in 11 years that we have stayed in Beach Suite 1!. We had our small children with us, ages 12 and 9. It was amazing to let them just walk straight out to the beach and play with new friends that they had met there Villa Del Sol is still under construction but never was any noise or disruptions. Food was amazing, Service even better. I want to give a shout out to Gustavo the general Manager. His staff is wonderful, all the time, not just some of the time. Eddieberto, Laura, Diego, Juan, Flaco, Felipe and all the ait staff at the restaurant.
