Hotel Irma Zihuatanejo
- What's Included
This is kind of a hidden gem if you like going out more during a vacation. We had the breakfast only option and it was perfect. We went out for most other meals, and the street just in front of the hotel and down the hill has tons of little cafes and restaurants. The beach is ok, we went to neighboring hotels and over to Ixtapa for beach days. The beds are a little hard. There'a yoga on the deck during the day. Infinity pool is lovely.
Our stay was Nov. 18-25, 2016. I booked the Irma on Booking.com and got a 'fourth night free' deal- I think I paid about $325 CAD....works out to about $80 CAD a night! This place is sure a steal this time of year! The Hotel Irma sure is nothing fancy- very basic and is showing it's age, for sure. But the cleanliness, staff friendliness and efficiency, great location, good restaurant/bar food and drinks (happy hour! dos per uno!) and most of all the GREAT VIEW goes a long way for making up for the shortcomings. We only had breakfast there once but the eggs with some sort of creamy green sauce is AMAZING....friend said it was the best dish he had had in the first three days of the trip. We charged some happy hour drinks and the breakfasts to the room and had no problems paying that at checkout. Pools are clean and the perfect temp to be a little refreshing in the 32 C heat. Could even be a little cooler- I am sure they are unheated like most Mexico pools- later in the winter they'd be perfect, imo. They may have done some room updates or renos -but not the one we were in, for sure. That is needed. Our safe didn't work - so we just hid our passports and didn't worry about iPad, etc. No issues. This room felt safe to do that, as it only has the locking sliding doors to the sundeck as access. Although we had construction (right.next.door!) it was nothing too noisy and while a bit of an eyesore (and hurts the view a bit from that room at least) -was a non-issue for our stay- granted, two of the nights were the weekend and there was no work going on.One minor complaint is the bathroom saloon door- no privacy. Not ideal for a new relationship for sure! But we managed. "Go out on the deck for a minute, would ya?" lolBeds were rock hard as ever, and the TV tiny, but again...those views!It is sort of unfortunately they don't provide a beach club- but apparently you can use the facilities at the Villa Mexicana. For some reason, even though I knew this, we never did it.All in all, another good solid stay. Would return, although I prefer staying in the La Ropa area.
I have to admit when I booked this Hotel I was a little leery as sometimes the pictures are not what the reality is...every picture is exactly what you get!From our beginning to the end of our stay I can't say enough great things about Hotel IrmaOn arrival we were greeted immediately.. check in was painless, keys were in our hands within 10 minutes and that was two separate rooms. Bags where in our rooms in less than 15 minutes we were changed into swimsuits and headed to the pool in less than twenty!The whole ENTIRE staff here is amazing... all are friendly, courteous and go well above expectation...they will guarantee you have a wonderful, relaxed vacation, business trip or whatever it is that your doing. The grounds are spotlessly clean. Food in the restaurant is a little slow in getting but then your in Mexico where there is no hurry to do anything. We traveled with a senior citizen 82 years of age and simi handicapped, staff was always there for help if he needed it. He became "Grampa" to all. We also traveled with a Eleven year old and his review was one word "Fantastico" The views from the terrace are breathtakingly beautiful from sun up to Sun down. Medera beach is just a few minutes away at the bottom of a steep flight of stairs, the younger generation can traverse these easily the older not so... we fixed that little obstacle by getting a Taxi, always readily available right out side the lobby and for $30.00 Pesos they would drive us to a cobblestone entrance at the bottom of the hill which made it very easy to get to the main beach which has some wonderful restaurants, try them all. There is also a walkway to downtown which is not far at all and ends up at the Marina... Take a sea taxi to Los Gatas for a day... Also I would suggest you do the Sunset Cruz on the Picante...it was relaxing and for $35.00 American well worth it. The Hotel Manager was a Gem... a Diamond for sure... very personable always smiling even though she works very long hours she makes sure each and every guest is treated like royalty... if you should decide to book this Hotel tell her "Grumpa" and his gang say hi! I will go back again and again! Can't wait to see all the wonderful new friends we made on this trip!
I certainly did not expect this hotel to be as awesome as it is. Very clean, friendly and beautiful view. Pool area is clean and relaxing, just not enough loungers. Food ok just not served hot and no offer to heat or compensate but many choices of other restaurants very close. Room clean bright and beds comfy, we choose the view room, well worth the upgrade. Not perfect but for what we paid we haven't many complaints worth mentioning. Would ask for small fridge in room next visit and we will be back. Room 28 overlooks pools. Steep walk uphill to hotel and to rooms but we didn't mind.
We have stayed at Hotel Irma in the past but never for this long. Had an incredible time and stay. The breakfast every morning was fabulous. I'd try something different every day. The hotel manager Yara was awesome. She would go around and introduce herself to guest and she made you feel like a member of her family. The staff were great also. Rooms were very clean, hotel has great view of ocean and I swam in pool every day. I would highly recommend this hotel.
