Absolutely wonderful vacation!
"This was our first time in Ixtapa, and we are still talking about our vacation there. The Bay View Grand was a wonderful place to stay. It was great to have the swimming pools, be right on the beach, and of course, the balcony with the beautiful view! The condo was very clean and comfortable. Tom was very helpful in giving us information on Ixtapa. And if we ever have the chance to go back to Ixtapa, we will definitely rent this condo again."

"The pictures and reviews of the unit are accurate. So nice. Being an end unit, I think it probably has better natural ventilation since you can leave the back windows open without losing privacy to the outdoor hallway like the others do. We never needed the AC.
We spent most of our daytime on the beach and would get a cab to go back up the hill. No big expense. It is walkable if you prefer. It's also a very interesting walk into town, about 45 minutes I think. After you crest the hill, you can get down to the beach and walk in that way. Go before 9 to see the fishermen selling their catch from the night before. You can watch while you eat breakfast.
We really enjoyed Zihuatanejo, and Puesta del Sol really makes you feel like you have a home."

"This was such an amazingly cool place to spend 5 days (too short; longer next time). Beautifully appointed and with all the modern conveniences. The open-air palapa was amazing, offering stunning views onto the bay, which never failed to bring a little gasp each time you saw it, even if it was the 10th time. Lois was such an accommodating host, who happily answered all my questions, and kept in touch throughout the whole process.
Really nice plus was Naty, the friendly woman who came each day to make beds, clean the place up, and even met us with freshly-made salsa and guacamole. They’ll even have beer waiting for you in the fridge if you request in advance, or just for their cost.
Beach was just a quick hike down, but understand that it’s a pretty steep climb back to the unit from the beach. If you have any mobility issues or get winded really easily, it might not be ideal. My lady and I are in decent shape, and it definitely got our heart rates up, but in our case, the exercise just helped justify our beer or tequila shot upon arrival…;)
Location is at the south end of Playa Ropa, putting you at the far end of the bay, but we never felt out of it. Taxis and colectivos into town are easy to grab by the beach at the end of your hike down, and both are cheap. We usually just took colectivos into town (15 pesos for two people) and taxis back (~35-40 pesos).
Be sure to pick up some freshly-made ceviche from the oyster guy who sets up on the beach right at the bottom of your climb down from the villa. I got a “small” order of the incredibly fresh and delicious stuff, which filled a standard-size paper plate (we ate off it for 3 days), and cost 50 pesos (less than $4).
Villa Zanzibar is really a very special place. Not your typical condo, but so much richer an experience. Can’t wait to get back there next year for a longer stay!"

"Our third time to Ixtapa and first time staying in a condo vs. all-inclusive. Loved it! Did a lot of research and this is the best condo complex on this stretch of beach in my opinion. Excellent security and location. Market, restaurants and shops directly across. Wonderful pools and lounge areas. Great service and restaurant had great, inexpensive options for our lunches. Like this side of the building (south side) as you do not get the direct sun which would be very hot. Cannot see the sunset from this side but we go to the beach to watch anyways. Very large condo and two single beds in 2nd bedroom so perfect for our two kids....and they had their own bathroom which was nice. Huge balcony where we enjoyed breakfast together and evening cocktails as we watched the waves come in. Thanks so much!"
