Casa Cuitlateca, Zihuatanejo: 213 reviews and 0 photos

In everyone's lifetime, they should experience a place like Casa Cuitlateca at least once. This small intimate hotel in Zihuatanejo satisfies all your senses. After a long trip, it was a pleasure being greeted by Alfredo's warm and friendly smile at the airport. After a short ride we arrived and were led across a suspension bridge to "Paradise". The views and architecture were breathtaking and the welcome drinks and guacamole were a nice touch Before we booked this vacation, I read all the positive reviews and was hesitant because it sounded too good to be true. After speaking to Barbara in reservations I felt better and booked our trip.
Believe me Casa Cuitlateca is everything you've read about and so much more. The grounds are impeccable due to the hard work of Paulino. The sounds of nature surround you, while the beautiful birds, butterflies and flowers fill your day with color. You feel totally enveloped in a cocoon of peace and tranquility as your mind and body relaxes.
We stayed in the Puebla Suite. It was large, cheerful and had the best mattress and pillows. It opened to a large private balcony with an incredible view of the bay. The suite was immaculate thanks to two lovely young women, Miriam and Angelika.
The kitchen offered delicious food "MADE WITH LOVE" by Sylvia and Ileana. Starting the day with a satisfying full ala carte breakfast, with a great view and nothing to do could make you feel a bit guilty. The feeling passes while you decide whether you want to enjoy the sensational infinity pool that has an actual fish pond incorporated into it. Casa Cuitlateca is located 15 to 20 minutes from the beaches and the center of town. Plenty of cheap restaurants in town or along the beach. Cabs are abundant but walking is the way to go. There are a little over a hundred steps from the road up to the hotel. There are plenty of places to pause along the way and take in the beautiful scenery.
Freshly picked mint that's grown on the premises make for the "BEST MOJITOS IN MEXICO" thanks to Ileana and Alfredo. The margaritas are not bad either. Overall
the best drinks in Zihuatanejo. Ileana and Alfredo were always available to help,
at the bar, in the restaurant or where needed. We found them to be knowledgeable,
friendly and warm yet professional. Everyone made us feel at home.
We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Terry Cahill, the owner of Casa Cuitlateca, while we were there. It is obvious why Casa Cuitlateca works so well. Mr. Cahill treats this fabulous property as home and his staff as family, which in turn is reflected in the way they treat their guests. Providing the guests with a haven to relearn how to rest, love and relax. It worked for us, we?re home a week now, yet are still enjoying the calming effect of our 10 night stay.
So before Casa Cuitlateca becomes a tourist spot, treat yourself to a little bit of heaven. Don't think about it, just do it!
