I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at Present Moment for 7 days last month (thanks to Groupon!). When I arrived in the town of Trocones I was a bit worried as it is on a dirt road and seems to be like you are in the middle of nowhere but when I stepped through the doors...

We recently stayed at Present Moment for a wedding and we could have stayed all winter. After a week of yoga, sleep, walking the beach and amazing food we came home refreshed and reinvigorated. The palapas are clean and safe, the staff is attentive and amazing--and willing to help you practice your Spanish! During our visit we watched local divers...

I stayed at Present Moment for 3 weeks for a yoga teacher training. My first impression when I walked in was that the pictures online do NOT do the place justice. It's beyond beautiful. The sound of constantly crashing waves in the background, hummingbirds and butterflies flitting by, tropical plants and flowers filling up the space. It smells good, too....

Present Moment Retreat is a very special place. It's intimate and exposed at the same time. Less than a dozen open-air huts with thatched roofs surround a pool and lead to a yoga platform and bar/restaurant which face a small beach and the majestic ocean. Be prepared to spend your entire vacation outdoors and relish in the the warm sunshine...

As two June babies living in the same city (Toronto) for the first time in years, my sister and I decided to look for a nice getaway to "gift" to ourselves, the only givens being sun, sand and surf. We got that and way more at this little slice of heaven. Present Moment Retreat is a unique haven that's a...

We have just returned from a week at Present Moment. The thoughtfulness and exceptional quality of every aspect of the environment, the services, the staff, the food make this my first Trip Advisor report. I felt compelled to write it. We loved: the intimacy of the small environment, waking up in our elegant room with the sounds of the ocean...

I had a wonderful experience at Present Moment retreat at Troncones. As a first time solo traveler I was a bit skeptical going to Mexico alone, but this place totally exceeded my expectations. My stay was very safe and nurturing thanks to cordial and professional staff and friendly fellow residents. This is a place where you will find solitude if...

Okay. We admit it. We got in on a Groupon. And for that reason, we were a little wary, sometimes Groupon being synonymous with "we're dying here." And after a heart-racing taxi ride from Ixtapa that ended in a construction-heavy dirt and gravel road, my wife and I looked at one another with that what-have-we-gotten-ourselves-into look. When Present Moment came...

This is only my second review on TA and like my first the only reason I'm writing it is because this was an experience that was truly great. The location was as beautiful as you could ever ask for, a paradise of waves, sun, shade, sand and sky amongst which the retreat is tastefully built. The staff were fabulous, caring,...

Okay so I'm the type of person who writes reviews only if I've had an exceptionally negative experience or an exceptionally positive experience. I'm in the Travel Industry and have been to many resorts around the world. Present Moment Retreat was definitely an exceptionally positive experience! If I could sum up this place in one word it would be...Paradise. From...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exclusive oceanfront boutique hotel and yoga retreat is situated on a quiet, serene beach in Troncones, thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes, yoga by the sea, meditation, qigong, dance classes and more. Rejuvenate with our offerings of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on healthy gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, waterfall hiking, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, exploring the village and much more. Our loving staff have pleased even the most discerning guests, and are ready to delight you. Our eleven private bungalows are the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Each unique bungalow is dedicated to one of the values that we hold in the highest regard. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of Present Moment. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen. ... more   less
