One of the most prestigious Zihuatanejo luxury resorts, Viceroy Zihuatanejo, awaits your arrival. Hugging the white sands of Zihuatanejo Bay's serene Playa La Ropa, Viceroy Zihuatanejo hotel is a romantic hideaway reclining along one of Mexico's most beautiful beaches. Admired for its "laid-back atmosphere and polished rooms" by Travel + Leisure magazine, this Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo resort's terracotta-tiled villas and thatched palapa cabanas merge with the green sea of rustling coconut palms, tropical gardens and gentle waterfalls that enfold it.

Thirty five luxurious guestrooms and thirty five suites are housed in one- and two-story, adobe-inspired casitas tastefully decorated with local Mexican art and clad in vibrant colors reflective of the tropics. Each room in this Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo vacation hotel is unique in design and features a private terrace or balcony. Suites include intimate, outdoor infinity-pools for soaking up the views.

One thousand feet of private beach stretch along the azure waters of the resort's splendid Pacific coastline, strewn with teak lounge chairs and exclusive palapas, daybeds and cabanas. Guests can enjoy three swimming pools, including a fantastic infinity pool poised at water's edge - as if spilling directly into the sea.

An intimate spa features six treatment rooms and a fitness center. Area activities are abundant and include tennis, golf, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, wind surfing, deep sea fishing, water skiing, surfing, kayaking and yoga. Award-winning Mexican Pacific cuisine at two gourmet dining venues and the convivial ambiance of three bars completes a truly captivating Mexican Riviera vacation experience.

Please note: This hotel also offers an all-inclusive plan in certain room categories. Please ask your Vacations to Go travel counselor for more information.

Dining - Viceroy Zihuatanejo

Viceroy Zihuatanejo offers the following restaurants:

La Villa - La Villa Restaurant in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo features exquisite Pacific-Mexican cuisine made with choice local ingredients and only the freshest seafood. While the wonders of our Mexican fare should not be missed, the restaurant also serves a tempting variety of fine French and international dishes. An adjoining terrace is ideal for romantic dinners under the stars or for casual breakfasts and lunches under colorful beach umbrellas. With its candlelit, yet casual beachfront ambience, quietly attentive service and elegant décor, guests will savor La Villa's overall dining experience as much as the superior food.

La Villa Restaurant is open for dinner: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. We are now having Mercadito night every Friday. No Mariachi. Change Maitre D' hotel by Restaurant Manager. And with a day's notice, any dish our guests desire - to accommodate a special diet or simply a particular craving while dining in Zihuatanejo - can be prepared for their pleasure.

La Marea - La Marea is a culinary treasure, serving superb Mediterranean and Mexican fare for lunch and dinner: Shrimp and grilled fish are perfumed with garlic and fresh herbs; crisp salads come dressed in house-made balsamic vinaigrette; our gazpacho stems from an authentic Andalusian grandmother's recipe; and our bouillabaisse could compete with the best of Marseilles.

The main dining room's open kitchen format allows front-row proximity to the lively culinary action, while the bar's convivial atmosphere and an outdoor deck area provide equally attractive alternatives while dining in Zihuatanejo.

Bars - Viceroy Zihuatanejo

Viceroy Zihuatanejo offers the following bar:

Coral Bar - The friendly sanctuary of Coral Bar offers ceviche tasting and serves superior margaritas, menacing martinis and our bartender's own secret concoctions.

When the sun goes down, this lovely bar in Zihuatanejo becomes the perfect place to relax over a game of backgammon, share your impressions with other guests as you enjoy a favorite cocktail before dinner... or savor a nightcap after. Coral Bar is open from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm daily.
