We stood at Casa Monarca for a week in past February and it was simply Exceptional! We had an amazing weather during all the stay and the facilities are just awesome. The Casa is big and well distributed and both pools are clean and warm.
The location is incredible and the sunsets views are just amazing.
We will definetely come to casa Monarca each year if possible!
This home provides an incredible view of the beaches below and breathtaking sunsets. But the home is poised atop an extremely steep hillside that is NOT EASILY walkable to the beaches below! Many of the cabs-taxis were not able to climb the incline. Driveway roads up to the home are in incredibly poor shape! We had a group of 8 adults that enjoyed the pool area daily and our weather was great! That being said, there is NO escaping the heat of the late afternoon sun during the day other than being in the pool. The A/C ONLY comes on after 10:30pm and if you're lucky may last until morning, but more often the A/C quit working by 1am. A worker drives up every evening around 9pm to "gas up" the generator for the A/C but obviously they were NOT providing enough gas for the air to continue through the night. By weeks end, we encountered water trouble as well. No water to flush toilets and no water from the showers. Again, after numerous emails and text messages they sent someone to "fix" the problem, however the water issues continued. Because the home is "eco friendly", know that it is FORBIDDEN to use any hair dryers, straighteners or curling irons. May not be an issue for most, but if you want to be able to use these items to dress for a dinner occasion, you CANNOT! The solar power DOES NOT provide enough energy for that use. We contacted management numerous times to address the issues we were having, which they did try to "fix", but it was disappointing to say the least that daily we had to contact them. Lastly, we were provided 2 towels and one wash cloth per bathroom. There are no extra linens and no beach towels - so bring your own. Trash didn't get picked up until we called. The home lacked some of the "essentials" we expected. I am NOT trying to "nit pick", but do your own due diligence and ask clearly of management what the home provides and what it DOES NOT. We enjoyed the privacy of the home and made "the best" of our accommodations. We will NOT recommend this particular home to anyone - but we most certainly enjoyed the friendly and safe city of Zihuatanejo! Great local restaurants and bars! Having 8 adults in our group we needed 2 cabs each trip into "town", but be AWARE that the cabs struggle with the roads leading to the house and it can be a very scary ride up as we found out!! Management really needs to address his safety issue!! Lots of beautiful rentals available - we researched many others during our visit. We will return to the beauty of Zihauntanejo, but WILL NOT return to Casa Monarca. Hopefully, the owner and management will realize the improvements that need to be done to improve the home. It may be "eco friendly", but they should also spend some time cleaning up the trash and debris surrounding the home. No escaping the SUN and HEAT in this home, but if you want a rental with a spectacular view, that's the best of what this place provides.
It has been a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed casa monarca and it's amzing view. Quiet, nice, comfortable with two pools all you need to de-stress, relax and trully rest. No doubt you will enjoy the best sunsent in the whole Zihuatanejo bay.
We had a wonderful experience in Zihua. We were 4 families with 3 kids and there was always enough space for everyone to enjoy themselves without being too crowded.
The sunsets from the main level overlooking the swimming pool were spectacular. The house was new and beautiful. The beach was close by although with the kids, we spent more time in the 2 pools. Having the car included was very convenient and allowed us to get move around more. Hoping to go back!
This Villa is amazing !. It is located in a secluded place which provides privacy and tranquility. Our big family (16 people) fitted comfortably. We have visited Zihuatanejo for many years and we have decided to make Casa Monarca one of our top choices. We would highly recommend this property to our friends. We had very relaxing time there. We would like to thank Miguel for his attention and recommendations.
