If you’re looking for a vacation that’s as authentic and charming as it is relaxing, then Zihuatanejo is the place for you. This beach town is known for its beautiful beaches, charming local mercados and delicious street tacos.
One of the most popular beach destinations in Zihuatanejo is La Ropa Beach (Clothes Beach). This dreamy beach is a slice of heaven on earth, offering soft sand and gentle waves.
Hotel Thompson Zihuatanejo
With a prime spot on Playa la Ropa, Thompson Zihuatanejo sits among the finest of Mexico’s beach resorts. Its one-, two- and three-story adobe-inspired villas frame palm trees and carry Thompson’s signature mid-century aesthetic with parota wood accents, brass details, Oaxacan clay light fixtures, and contemporary Mexican artworks.
Each room has a private terrace or balcony with ocean views. And if you’re in the mood for something a little more extravagant, look into the resort’s 11 swim-up suites, which offer direct access to an exclusive pool that overlooks the Pacific.
While the rooms themselves are a bit pricey, their size and amenities make them a steal for couples looking to stay in Zihuatanejo. They have two restaurants, three pools (including an adult-only infinity pool), and a spa, not to mention thousands of square feet of indoor and outdoor entertaining space.
It’s the perfect place to wind down, relax on the beach and enjoy a cocktail at a palapa. Guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s extensive array of sports and activities, from paddleboard yoga to fishing and scuba diving.
