zihuatanejo luxury hotelWe just got the reviews posted for the best hotels in Zihuatanejo: Casa que Canta and Tides Zihuatanejo.

Casa que Canta continually shows up as one of the best hotels in Mexico, at times topping readers’ polls as the best hotel in Mexico and Central America. I’m not sure I’d go quite that far, but it definitely is in the top 10. The big draw here is the setting, with the buildings looking like some fantasy sand castle rising out of the hillside. The structures dominate the view from both Madiera and La Ropa beaches, but are not ostentatious.

The location provides amazing views from the balcony or terrace of pretty much any room and it’s hard to top the feeling of dining with a panoramic view and the sound of waves hitting the rocks below. Now if only you didn’t have to hike to the beach…

Tides Zihuatanejo gives up the views from on high and instead gets direct access to a beautiful beach. The former Villa del Sol was already a great hotel before it became part of the Kor Hotel Group’s Tides brand, but now it is getting a makeover that is bringing it up to the decadent standards of the best hotels in Mexico. Expect to be pampered at every turn here, from the spacious rooms with every expected amenity to the terrycloth neck pillows and waitress service at the beach.

For a romantic vacation, a honeymoon, or just a reward for lots of hard work, you can’t go wrong at either of these fine Zihuatanejo hotels. Split a week between the two and you’ll get the best of both worlds.
