Beautiful Resort, Incredible Service

A really beautiful location on the bay, with incredible sunsets and beaches that inspire relaxation. The pools are excellent if you are not into the ocean, with staff waiting to help at every moment. The spa was wonderful and the food outstanding. The bartenders were gracious and funny if you're into that kind of thing. I am very much into that kind of thing! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend or week long getaway. Do yourself a favor and stay on the beach as the sounds of the waves are incredibly soothing.

Effortless Luxury

We recently stayed at the Thompson over the 4th of July Holiday with 2 families. We have young children from the ages of 2-5. Traveling with children is stressful and exhausting, but upon our arrival we were greeted with professionalism by the staff. Carlos (GM) and Julian (Front Desk MGR) made sure our stay was the BEST it could be.

The property was absolutely stunning, well cared for, and our room was out of a magazine! I am an interior Designer, so I notice all the details that most do not. I assure you there was no shortage of refinement and sophistication, but at the same time had a simplistic feel that was so relaxing. When you walked into our room you were welcomed by a gorgeous view of the ocean on the third floor with an open air living space with bar, lounge seating, dining table, and beautiful tiled infinity pool. (we used this space daily for meals with the children, pool time, and enjoying the sun with our favorite music and cocktail) To the left of the outdoor living was a room with 2 Queens with its own bathroom. To the right of the outdoor living was the oversized master bedroom with beautiful vaulted ceilings, built in wardrobe, and gorgeous bathroom.

There are 2 restaurants at the Hotel that serve up great cuisine for all to enjoy, my picky kids even found things they loved! We really enjoyed the room service this trip, our two year old son is challenging at restaurants at this age so this was perfect of us.
Our oldest son turns 6 today so we had an early Bday celebration for him at the Thompson. Julian made sure it was special by having a private table set up in one of the restaurants by the pool with balloons, ice cream, and the BEST chocolate cake EVER (which they made onsite) our son felt so special and we all enjoyed the extra effort and special memory.

The beach is gorgeous here, waves are not too big, no seaweed, water temperature is perfect, and no crowds. There are 3 pools, family, private, and adult. All are very nice and located close to the beach.

Julian set up a 5 hr private catamaran for our two families to enjoy one day and it was a seamless process. The boat was beautiful with the most wonderful staff who took great care of all of needs as well as the children aboard. We came back to the hotel feeling relaxed and glad we got to see Zihua from another perspective.

So to sum it up, our stay at the Thompson was nothing short of WONDERFUL! We are all looking forward to making it back as soon as possible!

Thanks again Carlos and Julian, we know you guys went above and beyond for us and we appreciate everything so so much!

Luxury only for us

We manage to get there just before school ends so the beaches and so the hotel too has been entirely empty. But even if it would be full i am very positive all would work 130%. Attention is always high a the food quality can not be discuses. Its high kitchen. We will be coming back always
