When guests choose to stay in Ixtapa villas, it’s a two-for-one deal. Although the area is referred to as Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, it actually consists of two different towns. Both Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo were once quaint fishing villages. Although they have been developed over the years, they retain the special simplicity and charm only found in small Mexican beach towns.
At your Ixtapa villa, you can lounge and relax, or enjoy the active life. Take part in yoga, swimming, golf, horseback riding, snorkeling, sailing and much more. After an invigorating day, there’s nothing more comforting than returning to your private retreat, overlooking the Playa Quieta.

For a meal, dine in one of the cozy restaurants in the area, such as the Il-Mare Ristorante-Taverna, a wonderful Italian eatery perched atop a picturesque cliff at La Madera Beach. La Perla Restaurant-Bar is the most popular beachfront spot and serves fresh local seafood.
Set in a serene, exclusive area that would satisfy even the most demanding of travelers, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo villas boast breathtaking views and utter seclusion.
