We wanted a break away from L.A., with our best friends to celebrate both couples' 30 year wedding anniversary. This resort is just ideal. The facilities and views are spectacular. Staff are among the most friendly, polite, helpful and courteous that I have ever met anywhere. (All were really great/professional, I especially commend Marco at the Bar, [our World Cup Bartender], and Isabella at Reception). The suites are huge and well laid-out; the pools are spotlessly clean; cuisine is delicious. I could go on and on for hours. If you are considering this resort, - wait no longer. - Book it!

Perfect Beach Destination

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last month in this hotel.
The service is great, and the rooms are amazing!
They have a hughe beach front and the shore line is breath taking.
This place is the kind of place where you stay in all your vacation. In other words, you don´t need to leave the hotel!
There´s a great seafood restaurant (la Perla) just 200 yards away on the same beach.
There are diferetnt kind of rooms but it seems that all of them have a private pool and terrace, which is really good!
The food is very good also.
The rooms are very spaceous and the bathrooms are huge and clean.
The main pools is the best place to stay all day long!
Great place to relax at a very affordable rate.

Incredible resort, even nicer people.

We received top quality service and attention during our stay at Villa del Sol. The grounds were impeccable and included large pools, beautiful bars, comfortable beach furniture, and extraordinary views. There were also several games available, such as backgammon and ping pong by the beach. We found the beach to be quite secluded and mellow. I've been to quite a few tropical areas in my life and I found Zijua to be one of the most beautiful. Our favorite activity was playing tennis and enjoying the tray of pastries and coffee brought to our door every morning, and lounging by the beach all day long! Re: the USA travel warning - we did not experience any difficulties and the folks from Villa del Sol picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. I would go back tomorrow if I could!

Perfect spot for rest, relaxation and romance!

We just returned from another four night stay at Villa del Sol and we loved every minute of it. This is our third visit to the resort in the past year and everything -- our room, staff and food -- was wonderful.
The renovations have been finished and never once have I felt unsafe in Zihuatanejo. This is very special place in Mexico and the local vibe, natural beauty and people are amazing.
Huge thanks to the staff at Villa del Sol -- especially, Eddy, Juan, el Guapo, Rosy and the crew at reception --for making our stay so incredible. Can't wait to return in July!

We loved Villa del Sol! The staff was awesome (so sweet!), the facility was immaculate with nice touches everywhere, and it’s got lovely pools & is right on a great stretch of beach (La Ropa beach). Highly, highly recommend this place. We were there in April so it was not crowded at all which was also a huge plus.
