I've been building a house here in Zihuatanejo. I've been staying on and off at Bungalows la Madera for a year. I've stayed in almost every room. There's a room for everybody's needs and desires. The Hilltops rooms are a good size with a spacious outdoor living areas and fully equipped kitchens, really nice because it's like living in a...

This was our second time to Zihuatanejo, and the second time staying in the Madera area, but our first time staying at Bungalows La Madera (Nov 23-30). We had previously stayed in a pricier hotel and enjoyed the fact that Madera is so central we could walk almost anywhere we knew we would like to stay in the same area....

We stayed at Bungalows La Madera from Nov 30 - Dec 7. This was our second time here, and enjoyed it even more than our first visit. This is a wonderful, central location - downtown or marina is a 5-10 minute walk. You can walk to La Ropa, even Las Gatas ( if you are adventurous). We stayed in one...

I was pleased with my stay here as while I didn't have the best in the house, the Platano was great for me. It has a small area with basic kitchen supplies, large king bed, desk area with view of pool and beach and a small shaded outdoor area with table and chairs. There is a great open dining/cooking area...

I chose this place, based on tripadvisor's reviews. I was looking for a beach front, or beach view, place that would be close to town central. This met my criteria, and there were not many to choose from. The web site's description and pictures made it look quite appealing. I had booked the "Cocunut Bungalow", way back in May. Upon...

We here at Bungalows La Madera would like to apologize for the discomfort you had during your stay... I wish something would have been mentioned to us so that we could have fixed any or all problems you had with the room.

We arrived on September 25th and left Oct 14th. This was my third time to the area and by far the best accommodations. If you want the real experience of the mexican culture go to Zihuatanejo. If you want a party scene like that of Cabo or Cancun go to Ixtapa. I prefer the real Mexico. I read the reviews...

I took a trip to Zihuatanejo with my husband and brother-in-law at the end of February/beginning of March 2011 and stayed at the Bungalows La Madera.

My husband and I stayed at Bungalows La Madera for our honeymoon - ten days of bliss! We caught the tail end of a hurricane on the first day we arrived, and our original room was apparently ankle deep in water on the balcony. We had planned to stay up on the hill in room 7. Mark switched us to...

My wife and I spent a romantic week here. The owners were so accommodating. They were so nice when my wife had an upset stomach, the owner brought her to the doctor himself. They even invited us over to dinner on Sunday. Wow! What hospitality. We will come back evey year! We love it!
