Location, the staff, the room - perfecto

We'd always stayed on the other beach, which is longer and perhaps more pleasant, but this hotel is so well located, making it a great change as we went into town easily and happily. The staff is delightful and we had a wonderful room with an enormous patio, complete with jacuzzi and kitchen, which was terrific as we were there for 8 days (never enough time in Zijua). We ate in town so I can't speak to the restaurant, but they attended to our needs and were most accommodating. The bed was king-sized and super comfortable. The wi-fi was erratic but we managed. The bathroom was fabulous and the view is incredible. We got a lot of bang for the peso.

Go to Carmelita's for lunch or brunch, have chicken at the dive (Meson de Chong) and mahi mahi tacos (guacamole too) at the restaurant on the beach with the Tecate signs to the right of the hotel.

3rd stay at Aura del Mar still great as ever

Although its name has changed (formerly Brisas del Mar), this small hotel on Playa Madera remains a wonderful spot for relaxation and exploring Zihuatanejo. The concierge Carlos helped us arrange a fishing trip with a very good captain.

Best Location

Charming, clean, walking distance to everything! Only downside was after the first day, there was no poolside service. Had to walk down to restaurant/bar for service. Everything else was great!

Another week in Paradise!

My only frustration with this stay is that it could'nt be longer! The service here boarders on that of any 5 star hotel. They were vey attentive with little extras and local advice. The restaurant was amazing! The pool clean and slide was a blast. Sunset cocktail bar very good. Zihuatenajo is a bit spendy compared to other areas of Mexico we've enjoyed but we will be back :)

If you get the chance, book the snorkel and spinaker fly on the Picante'. Flying from a spinaker over the bay was a highlights adventure I'll never forget!

Great views and pool. Efficient staff. Bar and food service slow at poolside. Bathrooms need updating. Lovely setting. Nice happy hour at sunset.

A little bit of Paradise in Mexico

This hotel was recommended by a friend. It was so charming, great location. friendly staff and nice big rooms and great big decks! The best part was the pool, the private beach in the shade and all close to the water! Be prepared for lots of daily steps! Loved it and would return!

Cozy, friendly, homey

Enjoyed it very much. Beds were a bit hard for my taste, but others might like that kind of bed. It was basically a great room, with attentive maid service. Flowers on the made beds every day. Restaurant was quite good as well. Views from the rooms are terrific. Has a boutique hotel feel about it.

Staff and location outstanding.

I will go back to this hotel again. Other than the fishing fleet sending dead fish ashore along the beech and a plugged shower drain,( both situations out of their control), the entire work force help make this a very nice get away.
