Welcome to our own little piece of Paradise, welcome to Zihuatanejo!
As soon as you enter Villas del Sol, you will be surprised by the 15'000 m2 of green luxurious tropical gardens, on a gentle hill next to the sea. Once you walked down the palm tree shaded alley, you will arrive to our 'Casita del Sol' Condo, which allows wonderful rest and relaxing to a party of 2 to 6 guests.
An exclusive and unique plus of Villa del Sol Condos is that our guests have the privilege and right to use the exquisite five star premises of the The Viceroy (ex TheTides) Hotel. After a mere 30 seconds stroll you will arrive to the beach, and enjoy to the maximum your stay. Indulge yourself with gourmet cuisine, served at your very own white linen table below your Palapa. Relax and for once, do nothing while laying down at inviting deck chairs! Let Reynaldo, Eriberto or Cristino and their crews tamper you with chilled Margaritas, fresh guacamole or with your own catch prepared right in front of you.

No wonder we use our Condo over five times a year. Kids and Parents really enjoy it, and believe this is the best place on earth to recharge your batteries.
Welcome to our little Paradise, Welcom to Zihuatanejo, welcome to the relaxed living at Villas del Sol !
We were there last February and liked it so much that we returned again in November. That fact alone says more than I can say in a review. This is a gem.
It's every bit as nice as its pictures. Master bedroom, main living room with kitchen, a nice second bedroom, two baths, all air conditioned with controls in each room, a new modern system. And a balcony that includes a nice shaded patio, with a fan, that we used for every meal.
The condo complex is connected to the Hotel Viceroy, so you can use the hotel's special area at the beach, where waiters will serve drinks and meals if you like. Playa de la Ropa is a beautiful beach. It's just a 10-minute taxi ride into the main town of Zihuatenejo, 50-60 pesos this month.
What the pictures don't show is that everybody you deal with in this place is friendly, happy to help, and reliable. Fernanda, the housekeeper, is a delightful addition to any vacation, happy to prepare meals and wash clothes and keep the place spotless if you pay her her normal (very reasonable and fair) rates. The people in the main office are accessible and always helpful too. They are happy to bring you the big bottles of water for the kitchen and set aside beach furniture for you at the main beach (for a very reasonable fee).
As I write this I debate giving it four stars instead of five, but hey, we returned to the same place, so that seems unfair. The two reasons I might have for making it four, are:
For the record, you don't see the beach from the condo unless you stand in the right spot and look straight down the path through the palms. You are about 100 yards away, maximum, with a view of the lush vegetation, the tops of the palms, and the well-paved path down through the garden past the hotel rooms, the hotel gym, the 25-year-old parrot, one of the pools, an outdoor restaurant, to the beach.
The wireless bandwidth is only 2-3 Mbps, and the router is by the side table in the master bedroom, so you get wireless effectively only in the master bedroom and the covered patio.
We had the luxury of staying in this condo in March. Condo is exactly as described in the description. It is a wonderful location, very quiet and private. Balcony was fantastic with ample seating and lots of greenery. Nice touch to have the mosquito nets on all windows and sun shades. Balcony also has a hanging rack for wet swim suits and towels. AC in all rooms is operated on separate controls. There is also some board games and books provided. We enjoyed the board games with the kids at night.
Playa La Ropa is a fantastic beach, not rocky, and not crowded at all. The waves were gentle, great for small children. Valerie was able to provide some beach/sand toys for the kids. Condo was within walking distance to multiple restaurants. And only a short taxi ride to Zihuatanejo.
The Private pool was a very nice addition to our trip. Nice to come back from the beach and relax in the afternoon shade while the kids swam in the pool. Also had access to a semi Olympic size Hotel pool and a toddler pool.
Drawbacks, use of the Hotel beach chairs was not free. The hotel told us the charge to use the beach chairs was $100 US dollars a day. However, a short 2 to 3 minutes walk down the beach and there are multiple locations with beach chairs to rent for the day. Very inexpensive and always good food and drinks.
The sunsets are amazing from the beach. Enjoy supper at one of the restaurants with your feet in the sand and the spectacular views. Hotel restaurant was more formal feeling, but was also very good food.
Valerie was very helpful in booking and taking care of our needs. We would stay here again.
Still one of the best kept secrets of the Mexican Riviera, Zihuatanejo offers all what the luxury traveler is looking for: relaxed living, pristine golden sand beaches, 350 sunny days a year, breathtaking sunsets, gourmet local and international dining, big and small game fishing, watersports and diving, tennis and two (Robert Trent Jones & Robert von Hagge) golf courses.
Tipical downtown Zihua, as called by locals, offers the charm of a local fishing village with assorted boutiques, crafts, food and fish markets as well as restaurants and bars.
Sister resort Ixtapa lies 15 minutes north to Zihuatanejo, and offers modern entertainment, night life and shopping.
Nature lovers will adore local wildlife, which abounds with turtles (don't miss egg eclosions July to December, with hundred of little turtles making their way to the sea), iguanas, pelicans, dolphins, whales and even some crocs...
Not to forget that wherever you go you will experience the smiles of the legendary mexican hospitality and kindness.
Zihuatanejo international airport (ZIH / MMZH)receives daily direct flights from major US, Canadian and Mexican cities, general aviation disposes of all facilities.
