Hotel Irma Zihuatanejo
- What's Included
Back for a second year for 2 weeks. The staff really go over the top. An example. We wanted to bring a fishing rod and skim board of my young son. But Air Canada wanted $100 each way, which is a little excessive. So we decided that we would rather give someone in Zihautanejo some money for the use of their gear and pay them instead of Air Canada. Erica in reservations at the Irma Hotel looked after this and helped out. We wish to thank the staff at the hotel for another wonderful stay.
We stayed at Hotel Irma on January 1-8. The hotel was very clean, the wait staff was fantastic, and the food in the restaurant was good. The hotel sits in the middle of a steep hill and there are steps everywhere. There were about 80 steps from the hotel down to the beach and we were also in room 605 so another six flights of steps to get to the room. I didn't mind because if it weren't for the hill and steps I probably would have gained 5 lbs on vacation, but my construction worker husband who climbs steps everyday at work wasn't as crazy about it. Between the hill out front and the steps it was a workout! If you have any mobility issues than this isn't the hotel for you because there are no elevators. With that said, the views from Hotel Irma just couldn't be beat and the pools are really nice, especially the infinity pool that overlooks the bay. My only criticism is that they could use a couple more umbrellas by the pool and it sure would be nice to have a mini frig and a coffee maker in the room, but we made do with a Styrofoam cooler and getting coffee in the morning from the restaurant. If you can get the deal that includes the free breakfast take it. It wasn't included in our package, but it sure would have been nice. I fell in love with their Molletes and the Chantilly Cream Waffles w/ fruit were also to die for. I wish they would have had a few more vegetarian options on their menu though. You could walk down the steps to the beach and walk along the malecon all the way to the pier where there were a lot of really good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. And if you walk out the front door of the hotel and down the steep hill you will find more good restaurants and an Oxxo convenience store 4-5 blocks down. Taxis were cheap and plentiful, so if you didn't want to trudge back up the hill you could always grab a taxi. You could also walk in the other direction to La Ropa beach, but it's kind of a hike. La Ropa is a nice beach and I would recommend taking a taxi to La Perla. They charge $100 pesos for and umbrella and chairs and then you can spend the day at their restaurant enjoying the beach. Their food isn't too bad either and they'll bring you drinks all day long for a reasonable price. The weather is perfect down there -- warm and sunny! I really liked Hotel Irma and staying in Zihuatanejo and I would return!
The staff is friendly and helpful. Jaime, Issac, Jayda, Fredrico and Manuel were all people that greeted us by name, and people that we looked forward to seeing every day.The room was always kept clean and Hotel Irma itself has beautiful plantings, a gorgeous infinity pool and a magnificent view of Playa Madeira. This was my seventh visit, but not my last!
We have been staying at Hotel Irma since 2004. We try and get there every year. We love the location, the view from the hotel pool area, the wonderful staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, and it is mostly adults. Hotel Irma is 'home' to us. We have met so many wonderful people that also make Irma their home and make travel arrangements to meet back every year. We are getting up in age, so too many steps is difficult, so we email the hotel ahead of time, they do their best to accommodate you on the lower floors. We have toured some of the other hotels near Irma, but Hotel Irma still rates #1 to us. The only downfall is the coffee...but hey, if coffee is the only issue, life is good! We will be there early February 2017 for 10 days and we can't wait.
Great location and price. Views are amazing. Excellent service. Rooms are not luxurious. Very, very basic. Great value if you are on a budget. You an walk anywhere for there. Pool is great. Only issue is the rooms are not too comfortable or private.
