A short 5 minute downhill walk to this beautiful beach, you will find numerous activities and restaurants. The energy of downtown Zihuatanejo is a 20 minute walk or a short cab ride.
With your own private dip pool, you can choose to stay in the comforts of your unit and enjoy the gardens and relaxing view of Zihuatanejo Bay. Alternatively, you can go down to the main salt water infinity pool which at times will feel like a private pool. Common area palapa provides a bar area and barbecue.
Casa Ziesta was designed with privacy in mind. Units in the complex are staggered so you only share one wall with your neighbor. No worries about hearing the footsteps above you. Bedrooms are located on either side of the living area. Relax on your private deck as the soothing sounds of gentle waves resonate from the beachfront.

A short walk from Casa Ziesta, you will find a wide selection of great seafood and international restaurants of all price ranges. The waves on La Ropa are generally mild and allow for great swimming.
Downtown Zihuatanejo is an authentic Mexican fishing village with a relaxed atmosphere. Here you will find a wide range of restaurants from gourmet to family run.

Why Allen Eng chose Playa La Ropa
Our travelling in 2010 brought us to Zihuatanejo and it didn't take us long to fall in love with the area. We realized that Zihuatanejo was a very special place in the world and soon after, our second trip was booked. It was on that second trip that we decided Zihuatanejo was a place where we needed to spend more time. It was on this trip that we met Tara and Andres who were developing the Ensueño 10 project. The concept was refreshing in that it was designed with green initiatives and sustainability in mind. We decided soon after that Ensueño 10 was for us and haven't looked back since making the decision to buy. We hope to share the beauty of our unit, complex and Zihuatanejo with other travelers who we believe will love it as much as we do. Zihuatenajo has a year round average temperature of 78.8 degrees and 340 days of sunshine per year.

Luxurious Place in Paradise
This place is amazing! My husband, daughter and her boyfriend had such a great time at both this condo this town. Everything pictured about this place is accurate. The staff is very kind, efficient, and supportive during our whole visit. The owners, Allen and Colette, are also wonderful and very attentive during the whole renting process. We will be back to this place many more times.
In a word - SPECTACULAR!
This was our first trip to Zihuatanejo and we wanted to be near Playa La Ropa, so we booked this beautiful Casa. We were looking to relax and unwind, and our goal was achieved! This Casa is well stocked, beautifully maintained & the attention to detail is evident throughout, they have honestly thought of everything - I can't think of a thing we needed that wasn't already provided! The bed is super comfortable and we slept well, hearing only the occasional bird or gecko. The staff were fantastic - friendly & helpful but never intrusive. Each unit is completely private from the others and the main pool is perfect for whiling away the afternoon. Taxis are plentiful and you can go anywhere for about $3.00. Or, order pizza to be delivered and watch another sunset from the patio! Not a bad way to spend another beautiful day...
This is the third time that my husband and I have stayed in Zihuatanejo and Casa Ziesta is the perfect location. A short walk to the beach, a short ride (bus or taxi) to the markets. Restaurants within walking distance...
Everything about this condo is so well thought out. The condo itself is beautifully decorated. Pictures alone do not due it justice. The kitchen has high quality appliances and everything you need to prepare a meal. The pool area is both beautiful and relaxing. The balcony has a small dipping pool that is private, with a breathtaking view that can also be seen from every room in the condo. The view of the ocean fringed by the roof top garden is beyond spectacular. We will miss seeing this on daily basis. Loved staying here, it had everything we needed and more. I would definitely rate this place more than 5 stars if I could.
We were so fortunate to spend 2 weeks at Allen and Colette's beautiful Condo. It was perfect for 2 couples . Lots of room and plenty of privacy. The view was incredible and the sunsets beautiful. ( We also enjoyed the early morning sunrises. ) It was so peaceful and quiet at the Condo and really gave us that relaxing and stress free vacation we were looking for.
Evelyne had cold towels and icy Margaritas waiting for us when we arrived from the airport and it was sure welcomed ! Ana did everything to make sure the Condo was cleaned and looked after and Armando kept the incredible infinity pool ( one floor down ) and the mini dip pool right outside the Master bedroom clean and in perfect condition to enjoy.
We always felt safe and secure as Augustine the security guard was there throughout the night. Sephius the resident house cat also kept an eye on things and even joined me one morning to share the sunrise.
Everything in the Condo was wonderful and it even had a wine fridge ready just in case. ( replace before you leave ) The cupboards were well stocked and we just shopped nearby for what very we would want to cook. In reality though it was so cheap to go out that we often ate just down the hill ( 7 minutes ) at Elvira's .Super service and great people. We took a panga one day over to Playa Las Gators and had a great day snorkelling and enjoying the sun. Food was so good wherever we went and truly enjoyed the Shrimp ! Try Bandidos in the town centre.
We actually walked to Playa Las Gatos one day along the beach. Trail a bit rough in places but was alright and took only 20 minutes. Kept us in shape for the class my up the hill to the Condo ( 10 miles notes from beach ) The view always made it worth it. Taxis were always available should you decide to cab it for 45 pesos which is less than 3 bucks. We have already befriended Francisco and will look him up on our next trip.
We really loved Zihuatanejo and have already made plans to return for 3 weeks next year. Colette and Allen made everything so easy and had so much information in a visitors book in the Condo. Though we had planned to check out the sights and see Ixtapa (4 miles away ) we didn't venture out at all ! I think we enjoyed Zihua so much it was just nice to stay " home "!
We had a perfect vacation and would highly recommend Casa Ziesta to all !
Thanks for your review Holly and sending the spellcheck corrections....
Wow spellcheck got me.
The walk down the hill was an easy walk and the walk back to the Condo from beach only 10 minutes ( not miles ) and kept us in good shape. Forgot to say too that everyone in Zihuat was so friendly and accommodating. Loved that it wasn't the " touristy " busy vacation that an all inclusive gives you.
We will definitely be back.!
The nicest place we have ever stayed.
This was our third visit to Casa Ziesta. This year we took our son and his wife and we had a great time as usual.The apartment is set up for maximum privacy with the 2 bedrooms being on opposite sides and the living room being in the middle.The weather was perfect with 14 days of sunshine.The new rooftop garden makes sitting on the balcony,looking at the view, even more pleasurable .
The staff kept everything clean and neat and were very helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible. We will definitely be back for a fourth stay.
Beautiful place in the world
My wife and I and another couple just returned from ten days at Casa Ziesta. It was as beautiful and well kept as the photos and reviews state. Although we certainly loved the city of Zihuatanejo and Playa La Ropa the apartment was so quiet and peaceful that we spent several days just lounging there, never wanting to leave. It is incredibly quiet and peaceful. The only sounds you wake up to are the surf, roasters and a donkey down the hill. It is well furnished and everything worked. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there when we needed them. The owners created a guide for things to do and where to eat that was very helpful. Zihuantanejo has grown a lot since we first visited 25+ years ago! but it is still peaceful and easy to get around. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. The walk to and from the beach is short but the hill is very steep. But again, taxis were easy to get and cheap. We highly recommend Casa Ziesta. My only hesitancy is that I don't want to have to share this gem with anyone else. We are already making plans for our next stay.
