The family had been eating lunch at their table when we first saw them, their daughter noshing finger foods on the tray of her high chair while her parents thanked the server for beers served in a bucket of ice. Over the next couple hours, they wandered back and forth to the beach to splash around, then back to the bed to lounge, read and even nap together.
It was all so breezy, jaw dropping—and simple! So many resorts fall into the trap of complicating their child offerings for fear that may not be offering enough. When really all you need to satisfy a young family is the beach, a nearby cabana, and sand-free dining (yeah, that beer in an ice bucket is nice, too). We know plenty of parents with toddlers that would fork over a pretty penny for a beach experience like this, which is why we almost feel off of our chaise when we heard Viceroy Zihuatenjo’s cabanas costs a mere $30 a day.
Upgrade to a Lagoon Suite for a pretty, airy room like this
Family in tow or not, these cabanas provide a dreamy beach retreat with constant breezes gently swaying the bed and great views all across Playa La Ropa. And now is a great time to beeline for a Viceroy Zihuatanejo cabana as the resort is offering 50% off low-season rates from $178 through October 31.
