Good Hotel, But It's All About The Beach

2nd visit to Las Brisas. The hotel is nice enough, although perhaps a bit on the older side. The beds are terribly uncomfortable (hard & lumpy) and the food options are over-priced and of average quality. Our room also suffered from a drainage issue that left the bathroom smelling of sewage. But, the reason I still love this place, is the amazing PRIVATE beach. It is seriously the best beach I have ever visited, and the service provided while at the beach is just fantastic. It truly is your own personal Corona commercial.

Take a cab for about $8 or the bus for 80c to Zihuatanejo for some of the best food and drink options around. It is a very safe place and just a fantastic experience all around.

Divine Pools

I mostly swam at Las Brisas Ixtapa. The two swimming pools are divine. They are clean and large and just the right temperature, located a short walk away from the resort to the South. You can take a small shuttle to the Pool Area from the Lobby if the walk is too far. The lounge chairs are comfortable, the bar service is first class, the towels are huge and soft. They also have a casual dining restaurant with very fresh fish in the same area. Beautiful. Great Service. If the mattress is too hard on your bed, let them know. Air Conditioning and TV, just like home. Beautiful view of the Sea.

Great Relaxation

Great hotel. The service was good, location was great. The beach is beautiful and the pool is nice as well. Only problem is the waves are very powerful near the beach which makes swimming in the ocean a little scary. Food was also very good and prices were very reasonable. The room was nice and had a great view of the sky and the ocean.

Far from the madding crowd...

The hotel is delightful, that being said it is secluded and you will probably need to take a taxi to go out to eat. The hotel restaurants are just ok and expensive. Go into Zihuateneo for food, Any's is good for Pozole, a local filling soup. Coconuts is a lovely restaurant with a silly name..more upscale and a beautiful setting. The maid service was prompt but not efficient, I actually wrote "dust me" on my headboard, they also charge you for those little packets of coffee..$6 per pack! Surprise! The rooms all have a lovely balcony with chairs and a hammock and the sound of the surf was delightful..get the highest floor you can for an unobsructed view, anything below 12 and you're looking at trees. There is an all-inclusive option which we didn't take. Las Brisas 2 restaurant is worth it for the view..it's on the beach and is gorgeous..food so-so and expensive. Chili beans (a decent walk from the hotel) is great for a cheap brekfast or lunch. We took a "village and coutryside tour" which was a great day out, stopping of in people's kitchens to eat pineapple empanadas right of the stone, a coconut plantation and more food out of someone's kitchen. I also got to make a roof tile..go me!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

As I mentioned the walk to Ixtapa is doable but a good long walk..Chili Beans for cheap food and a huge breakfast for about $5...the buffet at the hotel was dismal for $20..The Solarium (hotel) is ok for lunch. The shopping is mostly all the same stuff you get at any resort except for the large anount of silver shops. Bargaining is expected but try not to insult anyone! The Mexican people are amazing...all smiles wherever you go.

"Sueñalo, Siéntelo, Vívelo"

The secluded beach, the view from our balcony, the attentive staff, made each day at Las Brisas a pleasure

Don't do the all inclusive. Hotel has three excellent restaurants but you also want to be able to walk into town and try out the many different restaurants in Ixtapa...higly recommend Arborlitos. Also, Zihuatenejo is a short bus or taxi ride away.

Perfect winter escape

Love this hotel! We have been staying at this hotel for past 15 years and its always great! Staff is always friendly and helpful, in fact many staff members are the same from 1st visit!The beach is wonderful! We watched the dolphins play and on 2 differant days we watched whales playing!!The hotel is very clean and you always feel safe. The food is good but somewhat expensive when compared to the many places you can eat at in town (would never do an all inclusive!).The only negative is the very uncomfortable beds!! They are very hard and the only reason to be happy to come back home!

Las Brisas Ixtapa

The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. The happy hour at bar was very enjoyable with live entertainment. There were numerous locals who also enjoyed the evening entertainment. The food in the restaurant was excellent.
