Pampered and relaxed

I loved this stay. My first time in Zihua. The staff is so attentive, but not overly so. I spent my days on a palapa, swimming, sunning, relaxing. At the end of my day I would shower and head to Hao, their restaurant, for happy hour.

The hotel is right on Playa La Ropa with a gorgeous view and very safe ocean swimming.

I was there in the slow season which turned out to be perfect, upgraded my room to a poolside!

I've never taken this type of vacation before and now I'm afraid I'll never feel the same again.

A+++to the Thompson for facilities and stellar service levels.

Amazing Property and Amazing Time

The property exceeded my expectations. It literally looked exactly like all the online photos. The spa treatments are amazing. My massage with Rosie was fabulous. All of the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Both restaurants had great service and amazing authentic food...presentation was on point. Love Taco night. I had a blast all 4 days. I WILL be back!

Great Place, Great Service!!

This was my first time in Zihuatenejo, and I loved every minute of it. The Thompson hotel is first class with first class service. I stayed there for 4 nights in July, 2019. Everything about the hotel is excellent, from the bartenders, waiters, staff etc.

We ended up spending most of our time on the Beach. We ordered food and drinks every day, and it was excellent. One of the beach staff really went over the top with excellent service. Make sure you look for Eriberto, he goes by Eddy. He went above and beyond what we expected. I asked him about a florist nearby because I wanted to surprise my girlfriend at a dinner nearby. He personally took them to the restaurant and placed them on the table before we arrived.....WOW!!
