Anyone know or hear anything about the Viceroy being sold?
Thank you.

If you try to book now, you will see that they have closed Aug 1 to Oct 15 for renovations. Know nothing about any sale.

No, the Viceroy has not been sold. It is owned by Grupo Luksic of Chile still.
However, the hotel MANAGEMENT company will no longer be Viceroy Resorts and Hotels of California. The MANAGEMENT of the Hotel is now Thompson Hotels, of California, and the hotel will be rebadged as the THOMPSON HOTEL of Zihuatanejo. Martin Kipping will remain the Hotel General Manager, and all on-site staff will be unchanged.
The hotel is closed for partial refurbishment from last week until October 16th - although the main remodel, the Bar Coral (Orlandos), will be replaced with a swimming pool with private access, to be completed in December.

The "Thompson Hotel"? Has a nice Hispanic ring to it, don't it?

Just as much as The Tides did, or Intrawest, or Viceroy, or Embarq.

Poor La Ropa. Hardly recognize it anymore from the days when we could throw our petate under a palm tree or mangrove and not be bothered by ambulantes and certainly no crowds.

What do I know? Just copied how I saw it written in an article in today's paper. The manager was boasting about making videos of how happy his workers are. Well, I guess they'll smile for the camera if they want to keep their jobs! ;-)

Yup.

Haven't been back since the change over. They really screwed that place up.
