The Review

With a stay at Viceroy Zihuatanejo in Zihuatanejo, you’ll be on the beach and minutes from La Ropa Beach, and close to Virgin of the Tree. This 4.5-star resort is within close proximity of La Madera Beach and Las Gatas Beach.

Hotel took advantage of my interrupted travel and ripped me off completely

I’m a globalist with Hyatt and got completely taken advantage of by this hotel on my last booking. My flight was cancelled and the hotel wouldn’t return calls or talk to me instead they charged me full room and tax for the whole stay even though I couldn’t come due to flight cancelation. It’s so sad to see a brand like this ripping off and taking advantage of their customers interrupted travel plans. Complete disappointment.

Lovely place in paradise

Someone else in my group booked our accommodations, so I arrived without any ideas about what it would be like.
What I discovered the moment I arrived, and every moment of the 5 days I spent here, is a beautiful resort with beautiful friendly staff attending to your every need.
There is no doubt I will stay here again if I get to this place on the map a second time.
A special thank you to Marcos, the young man tending bar in the evenings. He was always gracious and expressed appreciation for us being here and being able to serve us.
Another special thank you to the kitchen staff and chefs. The food was always fresh, creative and thoroughly enjoyable.
Really loved everything about the Thompson Zihuatanejo resort!!????????????

Wonderful Stay

Recently enjoyed another fabulous week at the Thompson, Zihuatanejo. We booked a Beach Suite room which was perfect and a few shorts steps to La Ropa beach where we enjoyed daily walks and massages. Can’t say enough wonderful things about the staff. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. We have been coming here for several years and it’s so good to have the same faces greet us and remember us. Part of our package included a spa credit, which I took advantage of. It was perfect and so relaxing. Upon checkout, I booked a March return visit and I can’t wait !!! Thank you, Thompson Zihuat !!!
