About Kevin & Jennifer Herron

On our first trip to Zihuatanejo, we fell in love! We set out with our realtor to look at everything and ended up coming right back to the place we were staying while househunting. Casa Ceiba is very well known, safe, secure and a well managed complex. It was a very easy decision to make this location a regular part of our lives.

Great Restaurants are within walking distance and Playa Madera, the local beach is a three minute walk. We loved the pool area and the tropical grounds are very well maintained.

Kevin & Jennifer Herron purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kevin & Jennifer Herron chose Playa La Ropa

This one checks all the boxes! Being able to stay at a friendly, secure and well managed complex for short or long term stays becomes very affordable at Casa Ceiba. You don't need a car because we are so close to the beach but you don't pay an ocean front price to stay.

What makes this condo unique

This third level spacious open air living, dining and kitchen penthouse with air conditioned bedrooms overlooks a beautiful blue pool. There are approximately twenty restaurants within a fifteen minute walk and the price of food and beverages here are within anyone's budget. Three beaches are available to spend the day at. Madera Beach is only a three minute walk. This is a fishing village and you can purchase the days catch, cook it that night or take it to a local restaurant and they will prepare it. Massages on the beach are an incredible value! Taxi rides are about $3 within the city to and from most locations. This is a very affordable escape!

This was our third year in a row going to Zihuatanejo and Casa Bella Mia and grounds at Casa Cieba Condominiums helped make this the best trip yet. Two blocks from the beach, 5 blocks to downtown and more than a dozen great restaurants with a 5 minute walk. The apartment was incredibly comfortable and we always felt secure. Also the other owners at Casa Cieba were very helpful and always willing to answer our questions or give good advice. If you are looking for a great place to stay a great price than look no further than Casa Bella Mia. It will keep you coming back for more.

Great place to stay! Very clean, comfortable beds, all household amenities provided. Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The open air living room lends to a very relaxing atmosphere. The authentic Mexican decor is comfortable and welcoming. Loved the fact that the ocean front was less than two blocks away. Beautiful family friendly beach. There are two restaurants across the street from the complex with many more within a two block radius, as well as a taxi pick up area and lots of shopping. The downtown streets are just a 20 minute walk and then you can walk along the beach front back to Casa Bella Mia. A swim in the condo’s pool before bedtime makes this place a place we want to go back to many times over. Thanks Kevin & Jennifer for the wonderful stay.

Nice property, very quiet, older demographic

  • 4 of 5

Great central location! Walk to everything. As quiet as one could IS Mexico, after all!

Hard working pool/property staff kept the grounds clean and the pool up and running, even with challenge of the construction dust!

Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms.

A great holiday accomodation in Zihuantanejo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the ambience and privacy of CasaBella Mia set in a tropical garden setting.

The unit is spacious and overllooks the swimming pool and entrance,


We felt we were in a comfortable resort but close to the beach and several good restaurants,cafes and public transport and taxis were handy.

casa ceiba is close to the centre of town and shopping opportunities.

We met several of the other owners and guests like us which was a bonus.The overall experience was like a home away from home
