Ceniza | Inspired to take traditional wood-fired cooking techniques to new heights, Chef Miguel Baltazar found the perfect name in Ceniza, the Spanish word for ash. Under a palm-thatched palapa, you’ll be enchanted with Ceniza’s open-air, candlelit ambiance and enticed by a menu crafted daily from the wide array of ingredients sustainably sourced by the chef from the surrounding region.
Hao | On the beach. By the pool. Or at the restaurant. The choice is yours at HAO - a Zihuatanejo bar where a dynamic, all-day menu — and seasonal cocktails handcrafted with fresh local ingredients — perfectly complements the sun, sand and surf of Playa La Ropa.


Here along the white sands of one of Mexico’s most sought-after beaches, you can retreat to one of the thatched palapas, walk or jog along the beach, or dive into all that the resort has to offer: a trio of outdoor swimming pools — two for adults, one for families — water sports, cooking classes, yoga and an air-conditioned gym.


Two 18-hole golf courses by Robert Trent-Jones Jr. and Robert von Hagge are just minutes away.


With the rustling palms overhead and the rippling ocean below, the Spa at Thompson Zihuatanejo is a haven of peace and tranquility.
