As you open the door to the Los Pelícanos building at Punta Marina, you will feel an overwhelming sense of beauty and peace. Located in a private, hillside complex overlooking the ocean, the condo has a panoramic view of Zihuatanejo Bay, the town, and surrounding mountains. You can enjoy this breathtaking view from the huge private terrace, open-air living room, dining area, kitchen, and two of the bedrooms.
Built in 2008, this spacious 2,500-square-foot condo offers plenty of room for your relaxation and comfort. All the woodwork and decorative elements have been handmade by local craftsmen for a classic and elegant Mexican feel. The condo occupies the third floor of a five-level building providing tranquility and a lovely ocean breeze. As the condo faces north, the rooms stay nice and cool during the day and offer an unobstructed view of the sunset over the ocean. You can count on a soothing ocean breeze to lull you to sleep, although each room is equipped with ceiling fans and air conditioning for hotter summer nights.
The master and second bedroom each have an en suite bathroom with a tastefully tiled shower and a beautiful, handpainted Talavera sink. The third bedroom has easy access to a third bathroom just down the hallway. A large modern kitchen with an ocean view makes cooking a pleasure. The adjoining dining area can comfortably accommodate eight guests at the one-of-a-kind glass and cactus root table. One of the best features of the condo is the folding glass door that joins the dining area to the open-air living room for a truly unique living space. The terrace is furnished with very comfortable and modern seating, a traditional Mexican equipal dining set for four, and a small soaking tub for two – the perfect place to cool off and enjoy a margarita. The terrace is also equipped with an entertainment center complete with CD player, TV, and DVD player.
The condo is just a three-minute walk to La Ropa Beach - so close that you can actually hear the sound of the splashing waves. As you make your way to the beach down the stairs and along a quaint path, there's a large waterfall pool surrounded by a tropical garden and you may hear parrots in the trees or see an iguana sunbathing! La Ropa Beach, which has pristine white sand and crystal clear water, is bordered by palm trees and several beachfront restaurants that serve scrumptious seafood. Just across the street from the condo is “La Escollera,” a five-star restaurant with a beautiful view and an infinity pool. A five-minute drive will take you to downtown Zihuatanejo where you will find a classic, old-Mexico style atmosphere with pedestrian-only streets, a wide range of eating/dining experiences, and numerous “Tiendas de Artesanías Mexicanas" (Mexican handcraft shops).

My family of six stayed in this condo in January, 2014. We found it exactly as described - roomy, clean, with a great view. The housekeeper, Dulce, is a great cook so definitely have her make some meals for you. We did not rent a car, but Dulce's husband, Fernando, is a taxi driver and was happy to drive us anywhere we wanted to go. The best features of the condo are the balcony, which has a truly gorgeous view of Playa La Ropa beach and the town of Zihuatanejo. It was lovely to watch the lights in town coming on in the evening.
You can't actually see the sun setting from this condo, since it hugs the side of a mountain. But that is actually a plus, because the mountain provides shade in the afternoon so the balcony and condo stay comfortably cool. This condo building is small and out of the way, so while the beach was very busy during the holiday week when we were there, the condo always felt quiet. This is a hilly area and the condo is high enough to have a beautiful view, so be aware that it is a bit of a climb down to the beach.
The condo building is well-maintained and relatively new. We always felt safe there, and in Zihuatanejo in general. It is a great place for a family vacation!

My wife and I rented this condo for a spring vacation get-a-way. It was a fabulous condo that far exceeded every expectation we had from the website description and pictures. The condo was extremely spacious and wonderfully situated on the side of a hillside with a terrace overlooking the association pool/ocean/beachfront providing beautiful day/evening views and cool breezes off the ocean on warm days. The property was very well maintained that had everything one would expect at a 5 star resort with all the amenities of being in your home. We had the property housekeeper cook and serve all our meals on the terrace which was excellent. The owner provided a very thorough guide to the condo and area activities. All of the attractions listed on the website are worth checking out or simply just enjoying the refreshing outdoor pool on site. It's also a great place to just relax - that's what we did and had the most relaxing vacation of a lifetime. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a wonderful holiday on the Mexican Riviera.

I stayed in this condo for about a week with friends, and had a fabulous experience. The condo itself was roomy and spacious enough for our group of 6, easily. There are two bedrooms and an office with a futon that could serve as a third bedroom; as well as three full bathrooms and laundry. The condo has a fantastic pool just down a few flights, and was never crowded or noisy. Playa La Ropa and several bars/restaurants are just a short walk down a private drive, and it's very easy to walk to Playa las Gatas from the condo. I'd recommend the condo to anyone looking for an easy, relaxed vacation. The kitchen and dining area were great for dining in, and the main town of Zihuatanejo is just a short drive away for a night out in town. My favorite part was the hammock on the porch- what an amazing view! It makes for a great, lazy afternoon of reading, sleeping, and enjoying the ocean air.
“One of the most relaxing, romantic vacations we have taken”

My husband and I came to this beautiful condo on La Ropa Beach back in March and loved it so much we decided to bring our brother and sister-in-law back with us for another vacation. Luckily we were able to stay 10 days this time and loved every minute of it! There is no way to describe the view from the condo of the beach, the pool, the town of Zihuatanejo and the lush greenery - you must see it for yourself!! With the extra days we were there this time, we had a chance to revisit each of the beaches we went to back in March and go to some of our favorite restaurants in town and also try some new restaurants. We enjoyed having breakfasts each morning on the open air patio and then took time to have drinks in the evening - it was all very relaxing and enjoyable! We had Dulce come several times to make us breakfast and also dinners and she was a treasure! We also had her come several times to clean the condo. Everything we needed was provided in the condo just like a five-star resort. You could not ask for a more lovely place to spend a relaxing vacation! Many, many thanks to the owner of the condo - it is such a treasure! We will definitely be back again!
