My family and I spent 5 days and 4 nights the weekend before Thanksgiving 2018 at Siesta Y Sol. We chose this location based on previous reviews, price, and its location near the beach. We had never before visited Zihuatanejo and weren't sure of much other than we were excited to be visiting for a family reunion.
After a 15 minute ride from the airport via taxi, we were greeted at the gate by Carmen, the property manager, and a security guard. Carmen greeted us warmly and introduced us to the security guard, one of two who man the locked entrance 24 hours a day. She pointed out the pool and then walked us to our room where she ensured we were comfortable operating the lights, ceiling fans, AC, and television/cable. After she answered our questions about the immediate vicinity and town, we began to feel really good about choosing Siesta Y Sol.
Our accommodations consisted of a single, spacious bedroom, a living room, kitchenette, and two bathrooms. The kitchenette was perfect for our needs and, most importantly, was supplied with an ample amount of bottled water. The living room was furnished with a murphy bed, a small table with chairs and a futon. A balcony extended the size of the room when the double doors leading to it were opened. The bedroom had a huge, comfortable king bed, lots of storage for our clothes and luggage, a built-in vanity, a bathroom, and also featured a balcony.
Siesta Y Sol's location was convenient for us because it is a five minute walk from the water, a ten minute walk from the main shopping/restaurant area, and a short cab ride from Ixtapa. The immediate area is full of tourists, restaurants and shops. We did not visit many of these as we prefer the mercado-style atmosphere of the main shopping area.
Our stay at Siesta Y Sol was wonderful and I recommend staying there. The hospitality was warm and kind and the accommodations were great. We felt completely safe at Siesta Y Sol and in town. I added this last line because many of our friends and family specifically asked about security. I wouldn't hesitate to visit the area again. My family and I are already discussing our next trip to Zihua and hope to stay at Siesta Y Sol again.
