- What's Included
We have been staying at the Villa Mexicana year after year and always have had very enjoyable vacations. The location is perfect and the staff is wonderful (especially Eloisa). The recent rate increases and policy changes (all inclusive drink package, even for non drinkers) seem poorly thought out, poorly planned and implemented. In light of the recent U. S. State Department's warning about tainted alcohol at Mexican Resorts travelers should think twice about "All Inclusive Drink" offers.We are sad to say that we don't plan to stay at the Villa Mexicana again. We are joining the ranks of "former repeat guests".We're already researching and will be booking our stay somewhere else. What a shame....a wonderful place that once was.
This hotel is situated on La Ropa Beach (The finest beach in Zihuatanejo). Your room is steps away from the ocean and the white sand beach, and the three pools. The rooms are everything you need for comfort. Great air conditioning, just renovated bathroom and wash area, great, comfortable mattresses, towels and linens changed daily, and a great balcony.This year breakfast and alcoholic drinks are included in the price. Well worth it, but, don't forget to tip even though it is included. The grounds are very well maintained throughout the day and night by a very friendly staff. In fact the entire staff is extremely friendly. The Dona Prudentia Restaurant is on the property as well and has great food and an excellent staff. (See separate restaurant review) Mrs. B and I have been staying for over ten years now and have extended our stay to three weeks. There are plenty of activities available along the beach. Enjoy!
We spent ten glorious days as first time visitors to the area last month! The hotel is beautiful and being low season we were able to get a fantastic huge oceanfront room with a view to die for, thank you Eloisa and Jose!! Food was great at the restaurant and the included breakfast was a real treat. Extremely extensive menu, and if what you wanted wasn't on it, just ask...they will prepare it for you! We also loved the included beverage plan. All the bartenders gladly filled our bubba's and after one or two times, they knew us by name ~ thank you to all!It's a great area with so many fun restaurants/bars along the beach. We will definitely be back!!!
To repeat another recent review, this huge rate increase will stop us from returning for another winter vacation. It has been a favorite but to pay almost $200 per night for a few drinks is definitely not worth it and what about us that don't drink alcohol. BTW wine is not included in the package. The dining service and bar is slow, rooms aren't made up until late in the day, the pool cannot be used for swimming due to its small size, lounge chairs are all taken by 6 am, wifi usually does not work. Having said all of that, it was a beautiful spot and enjoyable at a reasonable rate but NOT THIS?
Not sure why, but we've just been informed of a 50% increase in the room rates for 2018. This was a favorite of ours and many other repeat guests. The location to the beach, efficient and friendly staff more than offset the small rooms which lacked a mini frig, basic small swim pool and poor or no WiFi. We generally make a reservation up to a year in advance but the reservation department there has been reluctant to take reservations or quote prices until just recently. And now that they have, wow! $185 US a night for mid January through March? I've never been a fan of the All Inclusive concept, and certainly wasn't impress when this place raised last year's prices to include an afternoon drink package. Availability of some drink items were inconsistent and the only beer available was light colored and dark colored tap beer served in a 8-10 ounce plastic cup. And based on my last communication with the reservation department, renting without the breakfast and drink package is not an option. What a disappointment
