La Casa Que Canta

by kettravels about La Casa Que Canta

Intimate and luxurious. Stunning views. I've never actually stayed here (I'm a backpacker) but have been invited here for drinks. Very special.

Playa La Ropa

by madamx

Playa La Ropa is the main beach in the town of Zihuatanejo, and there is a wide variety of accommodation located along it, ranging from small bed and breakfasts to the tony La Casa Que Canta, voted #1 hotel in Mexico by Travel and Leisure magazine. Families gather here, both Mexican and non-Mexican to enjoy the water plus the usual activities of parasailing and banana boat rides.

The water here is not clear enough for snorkelling, but is very clean for swimming.

Perfect Honeymoon in Zihuatanejo

by TripAdvisor Member BEBATL98

My husband and I recently spent a week at the La Casa Que Canta resort in Zihuatanejo for our honeymoon and it was amazing. We had read many reviews about different resorts in the Zihuatanejo area and we decided that we wanted the solitude and romantic atmosphere that LCQC had to offer.

We arrived on a Monday afternoon and we were greeted at the airport by a friendly representative from LCQC who welcomed us to Zihua and provided us with cool, heavenly-scented towels to cool off with before our ride to the hotel. The ride from the airport to the hotel was short--only about 15 to 20 minutes. Upon our arrivel to LCQC, we were greeted in the lobby by one of the concierge representatives. We relaxed in the gorgeous lobby with some cool drinks while all of the hotel and room information was presented to us by the hotel host and our bags were promptly sent to our room. The host guided us to our room (we stayed in the Luna building in suite 24-"Mujer") with a short walk through the open air corridors. To get to Mujer, there is a private elevator that is secured with a key. Mujer is a master pool suite on the top floor of the Luna building and it is VERY private and has a spectacular view of the city and the bay. Our host showed us around the suite and answered some of our questions before leaving us to enjoy exploring our suite. All of the staff spoke English and were extremely friendly and courteous.

We spent the next 2 and a half days at LCQC relaxing and enjoying our private pool, the great service, and the fantastic food before even leaving the resort to see the rest of the town and the beach. We took advantage of the room service for at least one meal daily throughout the week. The service was extremely prompt and when anything was brought to our suite, it was presented beautifully on our patio table. When we dined at the restaurant, we had so many wonderful choices and we were pleasantly surprised to find that we enjoyed every single thing we ordered. The rice pudding and the fresh fruit sorbet were some of the best desserts. The ceviche was delicious and we enjoyed it many times as an afternoon snack by the pool. The fresh fish entrees were outstanding. When we finally ventured out to explore some of the areas outside of LCQC, we had a great time, but we were always so happy to come back to the solitude and the relaxing, luxurious atmosphere of our suite. The concierge was so helpful to us in making dinner reservations at restaurants outside of the hotel as well as always reserving a great spot for us when we dined at the LCQC restaurant. The photos and description of the hotel amenities that is presented on the LCQC website is very accurate. We did not use any of the spa services as we were so relaxed just lounging in our private pool and in the common area salt water pool that we never made it to the spa. The suites have AC, but we never used it because the temperature was perfect and the ocean breeze kept our room cool at night. The beds are firm, but we slept wonderfully every night. The bathrooms are large and the refridgerator is stocked each day with lots of bottled water, sodas, and cervezas. Fresh fruit was left in our room each day. The suite was cleaned impeccably each day. We knew there would be no TV in our suite, but we didn't miss it at all. There is a TV/media room at the resort, so if you need a fix of news or internet access, that is available. A printed daily world news brief was delivered to our suite each morning, so that was good enough for us.
LCQC was an amazing, memorable place to spend our honeymoon. By the end of the week, we were already thinking about when we would be able to plan our return trip! We will definitely return to La Casa Que Canta in the future.

Perfection

by A TripAdvisor Member

On the recommendations of my neighbor and my in-laws, and after reading many TripAdvisor reviews, my bride and I decided to make La Casa Que Canta our honeymoon destination. On the flight back to Houston, we were in complete agreement that our honeymoon at LCQC was perfect - this was honestly one of the best trips I have been on, ever!

Our room (we were in one of the Grand Suites) had a tremendous view from its terrace - from what we could tell, all the rooms had the same view. One of the strengths of LCQC is the fact that it is a small, private resort, relaxing during the day and quiet at night. Our room was quiet and private with a spectacular view both morning and night - breakfast on the terrace each morning was fantastic. You could open the rooms up to the outside no problem, and if you wanted to be cooler, the air conditioning system worked perfect. Bathrooms/Showers were spacious and well appointed.

We were fortunate to make acquaintances with a couple who had been coming to LCQC for years, and they gave us the lay of the land on day one. We apparently came (and left) at just the right time, as we were oftentimes one of maybe two couples at the fresh water pool or the places to eat. The fresh-water pool was one of the highlights, and we didn't miss the beach one bit. Both of us love the beach, and did go down there and walk it a few times during our stay, but our opinion came to be that the pool was the best of what the beach had to offer, without the people, sand and salt-water that can make the beach a pain. In other words, we had the tremendous views, the cool winds, and the sounds of the beach, while also getting to have one of the many friendly, gracious staff members regularly bring us drinks and food. A no-lose situation!

On that note, I remembered one or two TA reviews that cited problems with the staff. We didn't see anything close to that. In fact, the staff at LCQC is another one of its many strengths - from Juan, Arturo and Antonio down by the pool to Yvirdiana and the other concierges, they were all gracious and friendly. After the first day they knew us by name, and regularly had ready what we liked to eat and drink.

As to the food and drinks, we ate both at LCQC and in town. The food and drinks at the resort were also terrific. Breakfast in our room was always hot, with french-press coffee ready to go, and always brought and set-up by Cele with a smile. The meals were, in a word, perfect - we recommend the ceviche and guacamole by the pool for lunch with a Negra Modelo. Also, it was our experience that you can feel free to eat and drink what you want, with no hesitation about getting sick. We were told that the resort goes to great lengths to ensure that the water is pure and the foods clean.

As with others, I was also impressed with the bill at the end of our stay. On the first day, try as we might, all of the employees refused to accept a tip from us - this is because they add 10% on your total bill at the end. It made for a much more relaxing time knowing that we didn't need to keep dollar bills handy all of the time. While LCQC is expensive, it was such a perfect experience that we definitely got our money's worth and then some. We doubled the recommended tip at the end because of that, and still felt like we needed to add more.

As mentioned, the walk down to the beach was no problem. If you want to be on the beach, then by all means try Villa Del Sol - it looks like a really great place. It also appears to be a much bigger resort, so our guess is that you will lose some of the personality of LCQC if you stay there. The food was great, but LCQC's was better, in our opinion. We did rent a water-bike the last day, and toured the bay in front of LCQC - that was fun.

Apparently since the Red Sox won the World Series, anything can happen, because upon our return Houston was about to experience snow! There is a satellite TV and internet access room if you need it (God knows why you would spend more than 15 minutes total doing so, but it was nice to stay in touch), so we knew the situation and were pre-emptively dreading the weather back home in advance. We did not want to leave LCQC. The people, the food and resort in general are perfect. We will be back.

Canta vs. Villa Del Sol

by A TripAdvisor Member

Before booking our trip to Zihua, my wife and I read the Trip Advisor reviews of both Casa Q and V. Del Sol. Since both locations sounded so very appealing, we decided to spend time at both locations.

Our assessment (for what it might be worth) -- while Villa Del Sol is a very nice resort, Casa Que Canta is a truly special place.

Totally different from Villa Del Sol

by TripAdvisor Member ktm11990

We just got back from 5 days of heaven at this hotel. We almost stayed at the Villa Del Sol and I just want to say that comparing the two is like comparing apples and oranges. The VDS looks lovely, but is much more of a traditional resort. There you lay on a chaise in the row of 100 they have lined up along the beach, at LCQC you select your chaise from one of the small secluded clusters (8 at the most, but several areas have only 2) and spend your day in secluded bliss. LCQC feels very exclusive, romantic and peaceful, VDS feels more fun and is where I would go if I wanted a luxury vacation where I could bring my kids.

A Very Special Place

by TripAdvisor Member mikeny-7

My partner and I had the pleasure of visiting during the week between Christmas and New Year's. CQC is truly a special place for those seeking serenity in an elegant yet rustic atmosphere. Loved the pools, the service, not being crowded chaise to chaise and the adult atmosphere. In addition, having breakfast served each morning on our terrace overlooking the beautiful bay, was a special treat. I was also impressed by the people staying here. A really nice group, many of whom return year after year. We look forward to returning many times in the future !

LA CASA QUE CANTA

by yeah_baby

The filming of "When A Man Loves a Woman" was done on this romantic location.

This place blows me away with its unique Mexican architectural concept and is perched on a cliff, surrounded by the sea of Zihuatanejo Bay with a magnificent panoramic view. This is where heavens begins...

The resort/fishing village of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is nestled in a semitropical area right by the ocean, which ensures a gentle climate throughout the year. The resort, with the beautiful Sierra Madre Mountains in the background, is settled amid 16 miles of hilly coastline, laden with sandy beaches and scalloped coves. The sun shines almost every day, with occasional rain late in the summer. The average temperature is: From December to April -- 65º to 75º F., from May to November -- 80º to 85º with brief showers during the summer months.

"Accommodation"

Sometimes life requests that you take time off and pamper yourself a little bit. Here is an awesome, beautiful place to do it!

In the friendly fishing town of Zihuatanejo, it's delightful simply exploring the handicraft marts and beachside seafood eateries, and strolling along Paseo del Pescador (fisherman's walk) to watch local fishermen either preparing to head out to sea in their small "panga" boats, or returning with fresh merchandise for sale to markets or restaurants in the area.

This location is located at Camino Escenico a Playa La Ropa, Zihuatanejo, Guerrero 40880 Mexico

Located approximately 20 minutes away from Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo International Airport.

"the beach"

This is the perfect getaway for those discerning travelers seeking luxury, intimacy, and a little pampering :-)! Truly, an elegant experience!

The beautiful beaches of Ixtapa are only a short drive away.

ZIhuatanejo, Mexico

by Zihrena

"A special spot on the Pacific coast of Mexico"

Zihuatanejo is stlll a fishing port - perhaps too big now to be called a village, though - that retains much of the charm of the real Mexico, despite that fact that the mega-resort area of Ixtapa is right next door with it's high-rise hotels, golf courses and upscale Marina. Located north of Acapulco in the state of Guerrero, Zihuatanejo has recently become very well known and a surfing destination as well as being a fine spot for other watersports such as snorkeling and skin diving, sailing and excellent sport fishing for catches that include sailfish, marlin, tuna and mahi-mahi.

?which resort

by Maryjohn

We are wanting to book for Mexico later this year but have seen some lovely resorts, now cannot decide which to go for? We are hoping someone can help us make the right decision please! They are in different parts of Mexico. The ones we really like are Las Ventanas, Royal Hideaway, La Casa Que Canta or one of the Secrets Resorts. I also like it to be quite hot and would hope to get very little rain so what time of year would be best. We are already going to Dubai on 6th June so it would be best if we went a few months after that. If anyone has any opinions or advice on any of these resorts I would really love to hear from you. Please, please help!! It's all I have been talking about these past few weeks. Thank You in advance. Cheers!

RE: ?which resort

by graz-ie

I stayed in the Allure Resorts (Allure Mayan Riviera) close to Tulum and Playa del Carmen when I went to México for the first time and I liked it a lot.

Sure there are some of those resorts close to each other but when you´re laying on the beach enjoying the sun you don´t notice that at all and there is a lot to do and see around there.
Have fun!
