Great value for a beach front, small family owned hotel, the suites are roomy and very clean, there is no pool on the property but who needs a pool when the Chrystal clear beach is right in front. here are a couple of tips for future travelers: 1. If you like Margaritas, go to Armando's Bar at beach level and...

We felt this hotel was ideally situated, right on Playa La Madera, which is excellent for swimming. Close enough to town to walk to yet was quiet in the evenings, just the sound of the gentle waves breaking on the beach. We utilized the outdoor kitchen for breakfast and lunches, so nice to sit on your terrace eating your breakfast...

The room was exactly what we were looking for. Right on the beach, nice view, private, and had an outdoor kitchen. The room was cleaned daily, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Sal (the manager of the hotel) was very personable and really made it a point to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I would stay in...

Nice locally run hotel on the beach. Very small, about ten rooms. Very clean and well maintained. They have about six palapas on the beach. The staff was great and worked very hard, thanks Elizabeth and Luis.

My wife and some good friends recently stayed at the Arena Suites. An excellent staff as led by Salvador (Sal). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Sal was always available and ensured we were taken care of. We felt truly welcomed and would recommend this bungalow to others for sure. The location is also excellent and within an easy walking distance...

It took me a long time to choose this place for our recent stay in Zihua (we just came back yesterday), but the place exceeded my expectations. I choose it because of the location right in the middle of Madera beach, whcih is smaller than the main La Ropa beach but prettier in my opinion. I booked directly through the...

We ended up with a 2 br that was within 10 yards of the beach. Full kitchen, ample bathroom area with great shower. Ac worked perfectly in bedroom. No...

I had a great stay here just last week. The location is ideal, perched above Playa Madera. The hotel has its own little section of beach where you can use lounge chairs for free. Really good massage is available there for a lower price than other locales. Armando and Clarize, the owners, are very personable and helpful, as is the...

“We love number 2 with one king size bed. They called that a "single suite" - not sure why. The room next door, number 3, is the same and has 2 double beds. Haven't seen the other but the big plus of those 2 rooms are the outside kitchen and the huge terrace. Paradise!”
