"My Husband and I just spent a beautiful week here. I have been waiting for many years to visit his part of Mexico. it had been calling me. Now I know why! I cannot say enough about C'est La vie. Harriett the owner has thought of everything. a kitchen better stocked than my own. beautiful linens and soft towels. the beds were superb - and I fell in love with the sling chair on the deck, staring out into the Bay every night falling asleep with the stars above. The infinity pool right below the deck was perfect. we took a dip everyday when we returned from la Ropa beach and spent a full day at the pool on Sunday. It was like having our own pool as no one was ever in it! so much better than having a tiny little plunge pool. I cannot wait to return, as I feel I have left part of my heart there......Be sure to use Harriett's "special" guide to Zihua. she won't steer your wrong! an added bonus to this property.
Notes on Zihua- I would skip Las Gatas beach- or if you must go be sure to bring water shoes as the beach is very rocky and the chairs are right on top of each other along the beach.
for an amazing romantic dinner be sure to check out la casa que canta. We headed into town most nights by cab - 40 pesos plus 10 peso tip - for dinner. amazing food every night with the help of harriett's guide. we especially liked Tamales and Atole Any and El Murmullo. On La Ropa beach - we loved spending our day at la Perla - buckets of 5 beers for 100 pesos - and your own waiter! we did the viceroy for the day which was lovely as a treat - but La perla has the better pricing and good beach chairs."

"We are sold on Zihua for our winter vacation spot! We love staying at this 39 unit complex....and the front building is where you want to be. Great views of the bay and pool area. Great breeze daily! The condo is luxurious and spacious. Furnishings are comfortable, kitchen is updated and has all you need. Wireless and Vonage phone are handy. Short walk to the beach and short taxi ride to town. Other condo complex guests are super friendly. Mollie is very responsive and truly wants your stay to be special. We will be back!!"

"This was our fourth stay at Villa . It is our home away from home. The service was great as always. Lourdes and Marie were available to us as needed. Marie cooked fabulous meals that lasted us the whole week! The villa now has a modem for wifi but it didn't work very well. But we really didn't need it. This visit was quite packed at the Resosrt. Each day there was a bus load of Mexican tourists that were brought in and it made for limited relaxation at the pool. Regardless, The Villa continues to exceed our expectation and we love renting from Dan and Nancy!"

"This place was AMAZING! Like the other reviews stated, the pictures really do not do the view justice. This villa is everything you could ask for. My boyfriend and I stayed for 10 days and we couldn't get enough of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo! We loved the area and the people. It helps A LOT to know Spanish (or somewhat) if you plan on traveling to this area, but you will still be able to manage if you don't know the language. We especially enjoyed taking the bus (which stops right in front of Porto Ixtapa gates) to Isla Ixtapa (Ixtapa Island) where we enjoyed the day at Paraiso Escondido, a local restaurant on the beach. Taking the bus to Zihua was just as easy and if you don't want to deal with the bus, here are a plethora of taxi drivers ready to take you where you want to go! I would recommend not on Dolores' place to any one of my friends, but this area in general. It is a true hidden paradise. Dolores made our stay pleasant and stress free, she was just an email or call away if I ever had any questions!"
