The staff at The Hotel Irma (pronounced Air-Ma) staff is the most congenial and helpful that you could imagine for a "budget" resort property. The facility is large, several levels, on the bayfront cliff with a screwy staircase leading down to the La Madera beach. It is reasonably priced, safe and secure. We slept with our glass slider open during the night...stayed for 6 nights....enough said about security?
The drawbacks of the property are:
1. after a night of boozin' the last 200 feet of hill are a real drag (take a taxi back to the hotel).
2. most of the suites have a built-in bed situation without box springs....bad for the back but good for sex.
3. stairs down to the beach are okay....trek back up requires insurance.
4. coffee in the restaurant is beyond bad.
5. pool(s) is(are) good for nothing.
Would I go back?????
SURE. The views, the balconies, the friendly staff, the sense of "security", the CLEAN rooms, totally acceptable bathrooms with real water pressure, perfect proximity to the village, the sea breeze thru the glass sliding doors and Spanish language TV!!!!!!
Have no fear. The Irma should be an enjoyable Viva Zihuatanejo Experience.
