The Tides Zihuatanejo

The Tides Riviera Maya isn’t Viceroy’s only impressive property in Mexico. Located on Mexico’s vast Pacific coastline, The Tides Zihuatanejo sits on the waters of Playa la Ropa, one of the country’s most pristine beaches. Located mountainside, above the fishing village of Zihuatanejo, the hotel is just four miles from the resort destination of Ixtapa and 150 miles northwest of Acapulco. Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport is a 15-minute drive from the hotel and a 40-minute jet flight from Mexico City.

Thirty-five luxurious guestrooms and 35 suites are decorated with rare artisanal Mexican crafts and clad in vibrant tropical colors. Located mere footsteps from the beach, each room is unique in design (single and split-level) and features a private terrace or balcony overlooking the gardens or the bay. Lagoon, Penthouse and Beach Suites include private, outdoor infinity-pools.
