El Pirata is on Playa Ropa in Zihuatenejo, at the far end of the beach. The rooms are clean, and spacious. The bed was soft, clean and made up nicely every morning. There is staff available throughout the day, though in the evenings it helps to speak some Spanish. My room had excellent internet service, in fact better than anywhere else I've stayed or visited at Playa Ropa. There is also a pool. The hotel is located a hundred feet (30 meters) back from the beach, so it's not a view property, so to speak. There is a restaurant of the same name that serves excellent ceviche. At $50 per night, I don't think there's a better deal to be found.
Room Tip: There's an awesome two-room suite, room no. 2 on the ground floor. It even has air conditioning!
