High on the hill overlooking Zihautanejo Bay, Casa Solana B&B provides the solitude of it's name, an extraordinary view, exceptional service, excellent cuisine & genuine hospitality from hosts Melissa & Sriram & their staff, in a tasteful, contemporary Mexican style property. After touring for two months we found our "special place" in Zihautanejo to celebrate a big birthday (expedited by our generous hosts) while enjoying this peaceful retreat, from the gorgeous infinity pool, palapa lounge, or our personal hammocks of our room, all with the fabulous view, day or night! So much so, that our five day reservation extended to ten, it was so hard to leave. The chef Antonio presented a different hot breakfast every day originating from his & Melissa's family recipes, including made fresh tomatillo jam. Happy hour drinks & snacks (made fresh) were equally delicious. The kitchen was very accommodating for impromptu lunches or dinners when we couldn't tear ourselves away from relaxing. We arrived just in time to enjoy a special "Curry Night" presented beautifully to a full house by Sriram. The property & rooms are immaculate, done tastefully & enhanced by the beauty of fine crafted wood doors & trims, and pieces of genuine Mexican folk art. Great open showers with luxury towels in a tropical jungle setting! We found the location a bonus, being somewhat removed from the touristy hotel zone, requiring a short taxi ride (or 20 min walk) to the nicest beach, La Ropa. One can only get such an amazing view from that perch. All in all, our experience at Casa Solana far exceeded our expectations. They have achieved a 5star from us, offer an incredible value, thanks to our consummate hosts Melissa & Sriram!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We enjoyed meeting you both and celebrating your birthday (with chocolate cake of course) and hope that the remainder of your trip in Mexico is wonderful.

Had a wonderful time, really enjoyed the pool and the lounging area. Was impressed by the breakfast, friendly staff and clean rooms. Good value for your money! Bonus: most rooms have private open air showers.
