On a hillside overlooking one of Mexico’s most picturesque bays, La Quinta Troppo is a tiny inn that’s big on charm and style. All nine rooms have traditional Mexican furniture; the palapa-topped atrium is an ode to the surroundings. Breakfast is served on the sun-bathed terrace each morning, and days are spent basking by the pool, sipping margaritas on Playa La Ropa (around a five-minute walk away) or heading out to fish, surf and explore the nearby village of Zihuatanejo by the sea.
Bed & Bath
Cool and peaceful, the inn’s rooms are spacious with carefully arranged traditional Mexican handicrafts, kingsize beds and air conditioning (in most). Large balconies overlook both the narrow, deep swimming pool and Zihuatanejo’s gentle bay, considered to be one of the prettiest in Mexico. Private balconies have low-slung crochet hammocks for whiling away the afternoon and admiring the surrounding Sierra Madres mountains.
Breakfast is served on a sun-baked terrace and there’s a fully stocked honor bar for soft drinks or cerveza whenever you please. While the hotel isn’t directly on its own stretch, there are five only a few minutes away, and staff will organize in-room spa treatments with advance notice. But for the quiet crowd the inn attracts, the best perk of all is the natural peace, privacy and poolside relaxation.
