About the Property
This property is the nicest unit available for rent in The Residencias Villa Del Sol., and Playa La Ropa. We offer Concierge service.
From the moment your plane touches down you will know how special this vacation is going to be. The Residencias is the only place that offers the security and amenities of a luxury resort and all the privacy of your own home. As you enter down the walkway with palm tree arches you will know how special “Celito Lindo” is. This special home opens up to gardens filled with tropical flowers and Palms many swimming pools and the amazing beaches of Playa La Ropa. Norma, the maid will be there every day but Sunday to clean and help make your stay carefree and comfortable.
The beds have all been upgraded and are soft and comfortable. The master bedroom has its own private patio and lovely en-suite bath with marble tile and inlaid stone work. There is a 'bunk' room with 4 beds and an ensuite bath as well. Each room has it's own TV and DVD palyer. There is enough separation for privacy. Throughout both these units the quality is apparent. The private Jacuzzi that overlooks the amazing Gardens and Pool are just one element that makes this spot so special. There is a fully equipped kitchen, open floor plan with living room, patio, and dining room that seats 8. There is a second unit that can be opened up for a total of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, perfect for two families or more. We have a Bose music system, and many different games. I love to play dominoes, Mexican train is a favorite.
We are constantly upgrading to make our home comfortable for the discerning traveler. We have some outstanding artwork that compliments the style of our home. The patio in the living area has doors that slide open so you can enjoy the warmth of Mexico, hear the birds, sip a drink while the sun goes down over the ocean. I love watching all the different varieties of birds in the trees.
If you prefer, meander down through the gardens lined with hibiscus, bougainvillea, and palm trees to one of the restaurants on the beach! The food at The Thompson is outstanding and you can eat with your toes in the sand. The restaurants also offer more formal dining. The Thompson, formally Villa Del Sol, is recognized as one of the outstanding hotels in Mexico by Conde Naste, Travel and Leisure and Esquire.

We had a wonderful time - it's a beautiful condo in a great location. The spacious outdoor living space was the highlight - a great spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails.
My husband and I and our 3 adult daughters stayed at Rich and Katy’s place in mid-December. To summarize - Wow! The unit is even more exquisite than it looks in the photos. Everything works beautifully, and many thanks to Miriam, we had everything we wanted, including a custom birthday cake for my daughter. She is so friendly and hospitable, not to mention attentive. Norma kept the place spotless, and as an added bonus, did the laundry! Directly outside the unit is an Olympic-sized pool and a kiddie pool. We spent a lot of time there but also enjoyed the beach, which is a block from the condo. The staff at Villa del Sol will bring cushioned loungers to the beach (where there are several Inexpensive yet delicious restaurants to choose from) if you wish. This unit is a bit pricey but worth every cent. The only negative thing I have to say is that we don’t live there full time! We hope to return this coming winter.
Cielito Lindo is a spectacular place. I would love to write something new to describe our wonderful experience, however all the reviews written are true! Thank you so much Rich, Katy, Miriam, Omar and Norma.
Fantastic on every level. The home is comfortable. I felt safe and secure and well taken care of. This was one of the best vacations ever.
We stayed in this condo for a week in January. I simply cannot say enough good things! The colors and interior decor of the condo are breathtaking. Instantly felt like I was on vacation the moment I opened the door. The condo has its own small private pool (the size of a hot tub) which was such a treat. The deck/balcony areas had wonderful, cozy furniture which was perfect for lounging and reading books. There is even a mini fridge in the balcony for easy access to a beer or soda! The beds were extremely comfortable and the a/c worked wonderfully after a long day at the beach. The bathrooms were clean and had all the amenities you would need. The private beach is only a few steps away. If you call the concierge, they will set up chaise lounges and towels for you on the beach. Plus they will serve cocktails and food right to your chair. The pools are very clean and lovely. There are so many things to do in this area. Many cute beachside restaurants and bars just 5 mins from the condo. It isn't too crowded which is nice as well. There are some incredible 5 star restaurants within 5 min taxi drive of the condo. It was very easy to get a taxi - the concierge helped with that too. I honestly cannot say enough about this property. It's gorgeous and such a treat!! I consider myself a pretty tough cookie when it comes to accommodations. I cannot think of one area for improvement here. The owners are also an absolute delight to work with. Very helpful with suggestions. Oh and there is a sweet cook who will make you breakfast in the morning. Best chorizo and eggs I ever did eat :) Don't miss out on this experience in Zihua! It was my first trip but I will definitely go back and stay here again.
Our group had the most wonderful week at Katy's condo in the Villas del Sol. Everything was perfect - Miriam was so helpful (fridge was stocked full of the groceries we requested), Lupita was so sweet (and patient with us while we practiced our Spanish), and the condo was gorgeous (it really looks even better than the photos). It was also the perfect location - short walk to the beach, and very easy for us to walk to all of the wedding activities we attended next door on the Viceroy property. The pool is quiet, too; never more than 1 or 2 people there during our stay. Town was a 5 minute cab ride, and the Villa Del Sol office will arrange the taxi for you - very easy! We would love to come back to Zihuatanejo again, and absolutely would stay at Katy's place. Gracias Katy, Rich, Miriam, Omar, & Lupita!
we were headed for a wedding in zihuatanejo and we were fortunate to hook up with rich and katy and the use of their condo....what a great location and for us the perfect vacation. katy and rich's condo was beautiful and a "short" walk to playa la ropa. property managers miram and omar could not have been more accommodating and lupita (maid) was the best. the town of zihuatanejo was just a short taxi ride away - fine restaurants and "shopping". or you could just walk on the beach for some great beach front meals. the condo is in a great location within the complex....great for rest and relaxation. 5 star....we will be back!!!! darlene and patrick watsonville, ca
At the risk of never being able to book this beautiful condo again I am writing this review because we absolutely loved our recent stay in this unit. The owners are very helpful and the condo is even more spacious and pretty than the photos describe. The unit directly overlooks the large swimming pool dedicated to the condos and was almost always empty. Sun loungers surround and there are outdoor showers, restrooms, and shady areas poolside as well. Behind the unit and up a few steps is a smaller pool with views over the lush resort to the bay; my husband and I were the only ones at this pool for a week. The large plunge pool with surround interior seating on the condo terrace is lovely for a late afternoon dip and if you want additional privacy while cooling off there are roll down blinds to completely screen off the area. The sliding doors and windows do have screens although we did not see a bug all week. The kitchen was well appointed; we made breakfast there most mornings and snacks in the afternoon. The Mega grocery store is a $4.00 taxi ride away in town; the security guard calls taxis for wherever you'd like to go. It would be easy to make dinner in the condo but we preferred to walk up the beach five minutes to La Perla most evenings to watch the sunset over the beach activity and a margarita. It's a two minute walk thru the lovely resort grounds to put your toes in the sand and you're right in the middle of the arc of mile long Playa la Ropa beach with easily surf for swimming and all kinds of water sports. The bed was super comfortable, linens were lovely, shower water pressure was awesome with plenty of hot water. Miriam, the property manager was there to meet us with the keys, a full orientation, and had stocked the fridge with requested wine and treats for just the price of the groceries. Lupita the maid is darling and does a great job. Hope you have as great a vacation in this condo as we did!

This place is Amazing!!! We had a wonderful vacation - relaxing, swimming, reading and shopping in the town of Zihuatanejo. The units are spotless, well maintained and very comfortable. I brought my Ipod to hook up to the music system - great sitting on the patio overlooking the gardens with the private jacuzzi listening to music - This is the Life! The owners were very helpful with our needs and very knowledgeable about the area. Very safe and comfortable. We would highly recomment these units to our friends and family. Looking forward to returning soon!! Best vacation!!! A+++++
What a great vacation! The location is nothing short of perfection, being in the middle of the nicest resort on the finest beach in the best vacation spot in all of Mexico, and then... you've got the condo. It's nothing short of fabulous. Once you get there, you might not even want to leave. It's too tempting to just lounge around in the cool water in the little private pool and sip on a cold cervesa and read a good book, or sit in the living room and take in the view, or take a nap on the patio. I have to confess, we spent a lot of time doing just that. But once you're able to rouse yourself and venture forth, there's just no place like Zihua, and in Zihua, no place like la Ropa, and in la Ropa, no place like Villa del Sol! It's just gorgeous. One of our favorite things was breakfast (or brunch) right down on the beach. The food is delicious. There's a nice breakfast buffet, but my favorite was the stuffed poblano chile. They even have good coffee, and if you've been to Mexico, you know how great that is! And then go for a walk down the beach. There are tons of other good restaurants in walking distance, kayaking, sailing, swimming, snorkeling, shopping, just about anything you might want to do. We had such a great time, we almost cried when it came time to leave. The owners Katy and Rich left no stone unturned in seeing to our comfort, and I have to say, it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. We will be back!
