Accomodations

While all of our Villas maintain their own aesthetic originality, there’s a common theme throughout our properties that empowers you to truly take in the beautiful and serene Troncones Beach resort. Start your day by waking up to the soothing sounds of the waves creeping onto the sandy shore. Experience stunning ocean views from your villa and while staying cool with our new air conditioning system and ceiling fans. For those days that you want to take a trip into town, there’s no need to rev up an engine when you’re this close to grocery stores, cafes and restaurants. Your villa is just a peaceful walk from all your necessities, and the popular Café Sol,  the place to enjoy local beer and a friendly atmosphere.

Back at your villa you have access to all onsite amenities like our Infinity Salt Water Pool, Waterfront Yoga, Horseback Riding and Deep Sea Fishing; and if you’re wanting to simply spend a peaceful day in the sun, lounge under our shady “Palapa” (leaf thatched roof). While witnessing a truly gorgeous Troncones sunset, enjoy a fabulous, healthy meal, served outdoors. When you decide to return to your Villa, you’ll find it looking brand new thanks to our daily cleaning staff that ensures every day is like your first day all over again.

Things to Consider

Passport
Please double check your passport! Most countries require it be valid for at least six months beyond your planned date of departure.

Where We Are Located
The location is ideal. It’s a short walk to the center of Troncones. The beach road is being paved at The Villas so no more dust. The beach is great for swimming, surfing, fishing and simply sun bathing. Troncones is a small community at the end of a paved road 3 km off Highway 200. Just 25 minutes north of Zihuatanejo Mexico which has a small and charming international airport.

Airports near the Villas
There are direct flights to Ixtapa/Zihuateneno airport from many major U.S. cities.

Transfers & Shuttles
Direct shuttle bus (6 hours) from San Miguel is available.

Money
It is best to exchange U.S. currency into pesos, and best deals are through ATM machines. There are ATM machines at the airport, in Zihuatenejo and Ixtapa (your shuttle driver can stop there on the way to The Villas) but the ATM in Troncones is not reliably full at all times. Please remember to notify your bank and/or credit card companies that you will be traveling out of the country so you aren’t prevented from using your ATM cards.

You may also use U.S. dollars. Bring bills that are in good condition. Very helpful to have numerous $5s, $10s and $1s. Also good to have a few $20s. Cash is needed for tips related to the airport shuttle (driver and person who gets the shuttle for you when you first arrive). Cash needed for buying drinks at airport, souvenirs at beach, cafe on the last day. There are also awesome jewelry makers/sellers that come visit, so be prepared!

 

Food Allergies
Please let Sabré know upon registration if you have any food allergies so that the chef may be prepared.
