Why Yadira Ríos Torres chose Playa Madera

Casa Ceiba is a property that combines traditional architecture with first class amenities. It is also located in the quaintest area of Zihuatanejo. This area still looks like the old Zihuatanejo of my childhood. It also has some of my favorite restaurants and it's within walking distance to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

I walk two blocks and I'm in the beach; two blocks and I'm downtown where the action happens. Still, Casa Ceiba is quiet and tranquil.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One month of fun with great accomodations, friendly people and super weather. It's a great place and Yadira is wonderful. We would recommend it to everyone.

Charming Apartment Very Near the Beach in Zihuatanejo
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

An absolute charming condo and wonderful owner and staff!

  • 5 of 5

Besides Zihuatanejo being a great place to vacation with beautiful beaches, delicious food, lots of activities and the nicest locals; our stay at Playa Madera was exceptional! The location couldn’t be better because it’s walking distance to the center of town, plenty of restaurants, shops and beaches. The condo building is very secure with a locked entrance that opens up to a lush courtyard with a well maintained pool and lounge chairs. The unit is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and eating bar. The living area is very comfortable and the bedrooms are big with large closets and nice bathrooms attached. There is a lovely balcony to hang out on in the hammock or sit and enjoy the sounds of nature. The residents are very friendly and quiet at night. Our host went out of her way on several occasions to offer advice and even joined us for a birthday party which we will never forget! This was a true pleasure and I’m very grateful we stayed here.

We were thrilled to find that this condo apt. is exactly as shown. Very comfortable with all you require. The guests and owners are all very warm and welcoming. The beaches are beautiful, the restaurants plentiful and the service and food is fantastic! Yadira welcomed us and gave a good description of all the nearby amenities, very helpful. The condo complex is very secure and the staff are just wonderful ....

Sadly we cannot come back next year as some other lucky folks have already booked! 🍀�

But we will try again another year to return to this little paradise👍�

Great apartment - Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for one month in Oct/Nov 2012. The apartment building is in a great location, a couple blocks from Madera Beach, close to many restaurants and downtown Zihuatanejo, all very walkable. And a 20 minute walk to La Ropa Beach. The apartment complex and the apartment are well maintained and clean. The building has a great pool area. Yadira, the owner, was extremely helpful to us and gave us a lot of information about the area. We recommend this apartment and we plan to rent it again in the future.
