8/10 Very good

The staff are wonderful. They work hard at keeping it clean. Beds are hard and the frame creak.

8/10 Very good

The hotel needs some work, could only have a cool shower no real hot water but okay as it was hot weather. Issues getting towels each day, some days lots other days had to ask as they took them away but didn't replace them. The staff especially in the breakfast room were very friendly and nice, helpful even when there was a language barrier. Not fancy but it's okay.

6/10 Good

Last minute find, great service but needs TLC.
Cute place, nice pool and bar area upstairs. Wifi only worked in lobby, not in rooms as the online description stated. Breakfast was pleasant, and service was very friendly. Our room had leaks both in the sink and the shower; which made for quite a slippery/messy and potentially dangerous situation. We told staff about it right away but nothing was repaired during our stay, so we had to improvise, using the bathroom trash bin to catch the water under the sink, and had to mop up the floor after showering with sopping wet floor mats and hand/face towels daily. Made for a lot of laundry since we try to be more eco-friendly and typically don’t replace our towels daily. Beds and pillows were a bit lumpy and our windows didn’t close shut. Lots of storage in the room for clothing and there was a lot of hot water which was a very nice redeeming quality. Just needs some TLC/maintenance, otherwise a nice place with easy beach access.

10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful choice
Hotel Zihua Caracol is a wonderful choice in terms of its price-point and location. It is convenient for both the main waterfront and also Playa La Ropa, while being quieter than places in the center of town. It is not on the beach, which I prefer because of quietness, but it has superb views and is really only 200 meters from the beach. The included breakfast is great.
