Located on the hillside above Zihuatanejo Bay, Solana Boutique B&B is an oasis with spectacular bay views. We offer more than just a room but an experience, a place to relax and unwind, with the amenities of a boutique hotel. A full breakfast is included in the room rate. It includes fruit, cereal, bread and one main entree that changes daily, just let us know in advance if you are vegan or gluten free. A cook is also available in the afternoon to prepare food and beverages from our bar menu.
We designed Solana boutique B&B to be a contemporary retreat with spacious garden areas and a seamless integration between the gorgeous tropical hillside, the spectacular bay and our contemporary Mexican interiors.
The Ceiba jr suite is one of our more private jr suites and has a private terrace with hammock, airy shower with view, Mexican handmade decor and luxurious linens and finishes.
The Ceiba jr suite has a queen-size bed to accommodate up to 2 guests. There is also a built-in loveseat and desk space. The suite has spacious closet and vanity area. A private shower opens to a small garden with views to the bay.
We designed the layout of the room and windows & terrace doors to take full advantage of the blissful breezes coming off the Bay but have also included ceiling fans and A/C to ensure your personal comfort.
While Solana was being built, we traveled all over Mexico looking for furniture, art and linens from local artisans. We have custom-made bedspreads from a family-run factory in Michoacan, hand-embroidered pillows and colorful hammocks, Oaxacan wall art and many other uniquely Mexican touches.
A complimentary breakfast is included in the room rate. There is also an honor bar and light lunch/dinner menu available. The entire property at Solana has wifi internet access but you might just forget to check in after a day or two of hammock-naps, sunset happy hours and massages on the beach.
We live on the property and always enjoy chatting at breakfast. We are here to make sure your vacation is refreshing, relaxing and customized to your personal preferences. Please ask us or our staff for assistance with anything that will make your stay happier and more memorable. We can arrange taxis, tours, snorkle cruises and reservations for dinner. Of course, we are also happy just to point you to your hammock and let you spend your entire stay there with cocktail in hand, a book to read with the gorgeous Zihuatanejo Bay on your horizon.
At Solana we have a shared open air palapa area that is used for breakfast, an honor bar, cocktail hour, reading and games. It overlooks our infinity pool with a stunning bay view. The palapa area is cool and airy with ceiling fans when the weather turns warm. Other areas that guests may use are the infinity pool, sundeck, library and garden spaces.
Interaction with guests
We assist with breakfast every morning and so are available for guests questions. In addition we live on site and so if a guest needs our assistance during the day they can simply ring the office bell to be attended to. We are happy to help and readily available in case of emergency.
Smoking is not allowed in our guest rooms but is permitted on terraces and other outdoor spaces. Please be respectful of our non-smoking guests.
Because we have a resident cat and dog on the premises, we unfortunately are unable to accommodate other pets.
Well-behaved child over the age of 12 are welcome. If the entire B&B is rented by one party, younger children may come if the parents assume responsibility for their safety and behavior.
My husband and I are avid world travelers and as we journeyed, we fell in love with Zihuatanejo. In fact, we loved it so much, we got married here! We had a dream of leaving the city and our fast paced lifestyle and opening a bed and breakfast. It only seemed natural to move to the place that inspired a sense of renewal and retreat in us so that we could share it with our guests.
We have a wonderful group of friends that we've developed over the last few years of building Solana. We spend a lot of time just relaxing and laughing with them - sharing dinner at one of our favorite restaurants on the beach, meeting for coffee in town and watching the fishermen bring in their catch, taking a drive out to the archeological ruins outside of town or going kayaking on the bay. We love to garden and have been learning all we can about local fauna as well as experimenting with growing our favorite vegetables, fruits and herbs on the property. We will be excited to share our knowledge and our garden's bounty with you at the breakfast table each morning!
