We rented a condo at the Bay View Grand residential resort(Ixtapa) in November The resort was great but the condo was the worst experience we have ever had in Mexico ever. We visit Ixtapa every year and the last 4 years we have rented a condo. This condo had a bed that was worn out about 10 years and so... More

Very friendly people. Walked all over the town of Zihuatanejo during the day and at night. Never felt unsafe. Food is fresh and the locals know how to cook.Very reasonable prices. You must come visit.

The bay is large and beautiful. Sunsetys are amazing and a local tradition (you toast the last glimpse of the sun into the water). They want me to say when I travelled here. How about every year on october.

I stayed in a hillside hotel overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay. It was gorgeous every day of my stay. Some people may prefer unobstructed view of the sunset on the ocean, but the sun setting behind the other side of the bay for me was spectacular on my hotel balcony!

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. Great restaurants, authentic Mexican town that we have visited many times now. Lots of options for day trips.

Worth a visit. The most amazing sunset I've ever seen. We picked up a fishing charter in the bay and spent the day out on the ocean. Then we came back and found a lovely restaurant to have dinner and watch the sunset.

We have been back to this area many times. We love Zihua and it feels like home. The beauty of the bay is awesome and beyond relaxing to sit and enjoy (with a Pina Colada!).

Pier and Boardwalk Br shops and restaurants are slow this time of year. So service is impeccable. Waves are calm. Locals fish off rocks and fish market varies day to day. Careful around the rock paths where the locals fish from shore. Lol. View is great lots of swimming going on at beach. Sunday's have gathering but basketball court in... More
