Casa Contenta is gorgeous. The layout of the house, the colors of the house, the decorations, the pool, the master suite are all lovely and elegant, yet with a very "Mexican" feel. There are restaurants that range from very casual to very elegant nearby. There are stores and gas stations etc. close at hand. The beaches are inviting. There is a reason for movies being made in Zihuatanejo (When a Man Loves a Woman; The Shawshank Redemption). My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing time on our stay.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay at Casa Contenta. This house is like a work of art! It is beautifully designed and decorated. Looking around the house, you will find countless artistic details. The house is a compound; a completely private oasis in a fun and vibrant city. There is a private pool and beautiful courtyard with lush gardens and tress where I practiced yoga in the mornings. The kitchen is a wonderful place to make meals with your guests. The house has an open floor plan so everyone has plenty of space. Zihuatanejo is a charming little town with a countless shops, bars, restaurants and art boutiques. However, Casa Contenta is so lovely, I wanted to spend much of my time lounging by the pool while enjoying the breeze and my margaritas!! If you choose to stay at Casa Contenta, you will not regret it. It is perfect for families, friends, or a romantic private getaway.
