A cold cerveza and homemade guacamole await your arrival at Casa del Platero. The only private home on La Ropa Beach, Casa del Platero features a panoramic view of the Bay and our famous Zihuatanejo sunsets, which you can enjoy from our patio or infinity pool. Our on-site staff pampers you with daily maid service. Upon request our cook will also prepare home-cooked meals for you. La Ropa Beach is a few steps beyond our front gate: there you will find many restaurants to enjoy as well as beach activities like para-sailing, banana boat rides, water-skiing, jet-ski rides, snorkeling and sailing. Downtown is a 5 minute cab ride away. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, and can sleep up to 8 people.

Casa del Platero means 'House of the Silversmith" named for famed Taxco silversmith Hector Aguilar. His artistry can be seen in the beautiful details of the house. The house is decorated with original oil paintings and other fine hand-crafts from the area. The house is tucked securely behind adobe walls. Each room has a locked safe for your valuables.

Interaction with guest

Hello fellow travelers, I am always available to chat by phone or text with any questions you have. Locally, we have a full-time staff who live on-site in their own home, directly behind the main house, and are dedicated to your stay 24/7. The couple have worked for us for 12 years and understand plenty of english but are shy about speaking it! But their daughter and granddaughter speak English, so between that and calling me, you're never without assistance!

Caretakers wife stole money out of my luggage Owner apologized and said they would reimburse me the $ but never did.

Response from the owner These guests defrauded us and our staff, bringing 18 guests to our property, which is 10 more that our stated policy maximum, a notification received when they booked. They were rude and abusive to our staff, sent our caretakers to purchase groceries we were never reimbursed for, and then stiffed our precious and hardworking staff after the week of caring for 18 people. We reported the fraud to Trip Advisor when it happened, along with their names so that other properties can avoid these unpleasant, disrespectful people. Owners, Casa del Platero
