Just spent 6 days at the Penthouse apartment (PH 4), at the Preciosa by the bay, in Zihuatanejo. This property has breath-taking views, three floors with a sun-deck, just about the highest point within eyesight. The condo is completely furnished with towels, linens, pots and pans, paper products, toiletries. The beach can be reached turning either to the left or right in about 15 minutes. Its pretty steep, so bring good walking shoes, but great exercise. You have to be somewhat deliberate about planning meals, since there isn't a local connivence store. Going into the city center to shop is one of the highlights of our experience. "Mersa" is the grocery store about 20 minutes walk that contains most dry products you might need in addition to eggs, bacon, milk, juices. Nearby is the market for meat, fresh fruit, vegetables, fish (red snapper was awesome). The kitchen at the Preciosa has just about everything you might need to cook. The outdoor gas grill wasn't working at the time we were here. The place is gorgeous and palatial. Its almost too big for just 2 people. The two bedrooms on the second floor are a little more desirable to the 1st floor bedroom, but still quite nice. Wifi is good enough but erratic. Thats probably true about the internet for the region (friends at club med said the same thing). La Ropa beach is beautiful and the apartment has an umbrella and chairs to use. You can also sit at a beachside restaurant all day, ordering drinks and food as desired. Taxis are readily available and the guard can hook you up. Prices for the cab are fixed and posted (I took a picture of the fares in case there was any question). I bought an inexpensive phone in Zihua (20 dollars), that allowed me to make arrangements with the local tour companies for scuba, ATV, golf and taxi.
If you are looking for an incredible venue, fully furnished, safe, and relaxing, near the city center of Zi, look no further.
