"Another Day In Paradise" what my boyfriend and I said to each other every morning.
If I had prescribed for myself the perfect relaxing vacation, with the perfect host, the perfect location, and the perfect setting, with the perfectly clean accommodations, I could not have found anything better then The Bamboo Palapa at Nancy's Villas Los Arcos....I must admit, I was a bit nervous about renting in the low season...humidity and mosquitos...but....sitting up high with a gorgeous ocean view ,sea breezes and fans blowing lightly all
night long, we were lulled to sleep..... awakened by our tree top neighbors every morning...The biggest decision of the day was to decide where to go for sunset happy hour and dinner....The rest of the day was already decided..breakfast, beach, hammock...book...Did I mention the crystal clear large pool (we had to ourselves)...massages on the beach?
....Like I read in reviews before I booked...the only downside...was having to leave...We will be back to your slice of heaven Nancy...

Villa Los Arcos is an amazing place and Nancy Lewis is a fantastic host. My husband and I stayed in El Bamboo for 6 nights. Our routine consisted of beach, pool, eat, pool, rest, eat, beach, pool, eat. El Bamboo is just perfect if you are looking for an open air experience. The apartments are also very well appointed and the cleanliness is 5-star. Each time we came back to Villas Los Arcos we felt we were returning to our personal oasis of beauty. The restaurants in Zihau and Play La Ropa are easily accessed and prices are excellent. Taxis and buses are right outside the door and Nancy has plenty of suggestions for dining or activities.
A Funky Treat!
Staying in the open air penthouse at Villas Los Arcos was a unique experience. Don’t worry about not having air conditioning. It is high enough that there is always a breeze and the temperature is perfect night and day. We enjoyed preparing our own meals and taking advantage of view and the sunsets while we ate. Nancy and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. Our only minor complaint was that the internet in the penthouse was a little bit inconsistent so a couple of times we had to suffer the terrible hardship of using a device by the pool closer to a modem. The beach is a four or five minute stroll away and close enough that you can always hear the surf mixed in with bird sounds. Of course you would be able to find a less expensive accommodation if you wanted and the cost was a little bit more than my wife and I usually spend but we felt it was well worth it for such a funky high end penthouse treat.
We stayed in the Bamboo Penthouse and loved it. I feel that the lack of air conditioning ( lots of fresh ocean breezes and fans instead) meant a better adaptation to the heat. The kitchenette was great for coffee and breakfast daily and we could have made simple meals, but there are so many good restaurants, we didn't feel the need to cook. The pool was delightful, the hammock in our room very comfortable. Nancy was a super hostess and gave us all the information we needed for a great week in Zihuatanejo. Look forward to going there again.
Impressive, relaxful, beautiful, super accommodations
Nancy's place is wonderful. Just a short walk to the beach and features beautiful super clean rooms with a local feel. Just the right size so you think the place is all your own. Quiet, relaxing and very safe. Hope to stay there again soon.
Oh yeah, we'll be back!!
We had never been to lovely Zihuatanejo before but knew what we wanted in an accommodation; close to if not on the beach, a pool, easy transportation and a helpful host. Villas Los Arcos did more than fit the bill and we would have to say, as others have, that this was the best place we have ever stayed at in Mexico. We stayed in the open palapa; if you need walls, hate a lovely soft breeze, don't like watching the sunrise or sunset, don't care for a comfortable bed and can't be bothered with a wonderful host, don't stay here!!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience or a more marvellous two weeks. Thanks for all your info, Nancy - much appreciated and all your recommendations were great.
Upon arrival we will provide information on restaurants, activities, and how to get around. It's Mexico....relax, enjoy!
