The pros for Hotel Irma are: Location, View, Staff, pools, cleanliness. It was so easy to walk to town for dinner, enjoy the beach access...the beach closest to the hotel (Madera) was our favorite...small enough and big enough at the same time! The air conditioning was such a treat after a hot day at the beach or in town...worked great all week! The room would be perfect if it just had a small refrigerator so we could keep cold water or beer in the room and a coffee maker...those were our two missing items for a 5 star rating. We had a girls week away and found the pool in the afternoon to be quite the social club, we met such a great variety of people throughout the week and it made the stay that much more pleasant!

"Four Seasons quality with all of Mexico's charm!"
I rarely write reviews but this facility truly warrants some commentary. My wife and myself visited for our 20th anniversary and EVERYTHING was spectacular; Service, location and dining.
Service - At no point during our stay did I ever have to search for an answer. The staff from Laura at the front desk to Fredy in the restaurant a subtle glance from either myself or my spouse they would spring into action...INCREDIBLE
Location - this hotel is literally built into a rock formation and overlooks the ocean...every view throughout the entire facility is beautiful and if you want to dip your feet in the sand it is only 300 yards away!
Dining - we came to La Casa with intention of visiting several different restaurants in the surrounding area but the dining on campus was soooo good we went offsite all of twice. The menu changes daily and the options are a great mix of traditional fare and what is the "catch of the day"
Truly a spectacular trip!

The facilities were as good as the pictures. The staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. We will be going back! Don't take the shuttle, a cab would be just fine, as the hotel is not far from the airport.

This was my third stay and as fantastic as ever. Quaint, tropical jungle setting with white sand beach. This is authentic Mexico with a world class view and location, not the "Hilton".. The rooms are 1950 era but well maintained and like new. Staff is excellent. If you want an "American style setting" stay in Ixtapa. If you want real Mexico, stay at the Catalina. Be aware the property is built on a hillside with long steps, if you are not in reasonable health, don't stay here. The Catalina is a rare find and most people visit again and again....

Its a great hotel but I am not sure it is luxurious enough to justify the 4.7 stars it currently has. The staff is super nice and helpful. It is very open air though which might not work for everyone - ie. there are going to be some bugs in your room and some dust on the floors etc. It is also VERY vertical. We did not mind and we liked the exercise and they were always volunteering to take us on the golf cart down and up from the pool. A solid offering with great views, pool and beach access but it really has that middle class Canadian tourist vibe going. The Viceroy is more upscale and we spent most of our nights there.

On the Pacific Coast of Guerrero, Mexico, the city of Zihuatanejo has worked hard to retain its “village” look and feel. Many downtown streets are still paved with cobblestones, and zoning laws prohibit buildings over 4 stories. A brick-paved beachfront promenade runs along Playa La Madera and Playa Principal to the pier, and all beaches along the bay are safe for swimming.
