My family absolutely loved staying here. 10 days over Christmas with two teenagers was very comfortable for us. The en-suite bathroom is a nice added touch for the master bedroom. Well laid out condo. Air Conditioner was appreciated as we are not used to the humidity! The view from the condo is very breathtaking! Every morning we would sit on the deck to read and enjoy the view. Grounds are well maintained and very lush! We made use of the well stocked kitchen. Appreciated the water filtration system, filled up water bottles for the days activities. The affinity pools had umbrellas and chairs and had an amazing view of the bay. Books available to read and return. Our kids appreciated Wi-Fi and Internet access as did we, to wish our families a Merry Christmas! Location is as advertised. 10 minutes to the beach and a short cab ride to the center of Zihu! Eliezer, was in charge of guest services and was helpful with any questions we had. Great customer service! Our highlight was watching the sea turtles hatch and we had the opportunity to release them out to the ocean. Unbelievable! My husband and I took a cooking class with Monica (patio mexica.com to book in advance). She toured us to the markets (fresh fish, beef, vegetables, fruit, bread and spices) and gave us tips on what to buy. We prepared our own salsa and learned how to prepare an authentic Mexican meal. Wonderful experience! Our family is very active! Here is a few of our highlights: Kayaked at Barra de Potosi, Snorkeled at Las Gatas and Ixtapa Island. Fishing with "Moses" and the fish that we caught were then prepared for a fresh lunch. Zip-lined at Ixtapa. Sunset cruise on the Picante. Parasailed, Jet-skied, and rode the waves on La Ropa Beach. Restaurants we loved: Il Mare, Elvira's, La Vita e' Bella (spinach ravioli) La Pearla, Jungle Pizza, and Bandidos (has TSN sports).
As I mentioned, accommodations were perfect for our family. Communication with condo owner was via e-mail with easy payment transactions. On our next trip to Zihu, this condo will be our first choice!
