Perfect hotel for us

Would recommend Tue, Jan 19, 2016
My sister and I travel to Mexico every year and had not been to Zihuatanejo before. So happy we picked Aura de Mar as it was perfect for us. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. We did go to the city, Ixtapa to swim with the dolphins which was an amazing experience but glad to come back to Zihuatanejo and Aura del Mar where we felt at home. The food in the restaurant was delicious and we tried breakfast and dinner! Great restaurants everywhere and a little grocery store across the street for when we just needed a snack. Loved Aura de Mar and will most definitely come back because of the kindness of the staff, the great rooms and the pool is perfect! Swimming in the warm ocean was pretty darn nice too!

great stay

Would recommend Tue, Mar 24, 2015
This is a funky little hotel perched on the hill above Madera beach. Only 30 rooms spread over 8 floors, so lots and lots of stairs. This was our second stay and we returned because of the great proximity to restaurants too numerous to count, the great staff, great views of the bay from the room, and the relaxing atmosphere.

Relaxing Location

Would recommend Mon, Jan 19, 2015
We went to Zihua for an escape. The hotel was so relaxing. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were comfortable with amazing views. The layout of the hotel makes it feel intimate and private. The pool and deck areas are set up well. Kept immaculately clean. And Carola, the resident parrot is a hoot! Location is great too-- very close to amazing food (shout out to La Pearla Negra and El Arrayan), Mercado Centrale, Paseo Pescadora and downtown. My only complaint was the massage I got at the in house spa. It was only about 40 minutes, even though I paid for 60-- and it felt rushed, like they had to get though each "piece" more than the amount of time. Place next door was amazing for massages thereafter though.

Dining

For great food and even better people, try out La Pearla Negra and El Arrayan just down the hill.

GREAT LOCATION

Would recommend Sun, Nov 23, 2014
Everything setup for us was just great. Service was excellent, and immediate. I recommend Aura Del Mar to all my friends. I do wish they would acquire an escalator. Our room was located is a very pristine location. The hotel located the perfect fishing vessel.

Dining

Lot of places to go to shop, snack, drink close by.

This was our favorite hotel in Z

Would recommend Wed, Sep 17, 2014
We'd previously stayed on La Ropa Beach, which is lovely, but decided to try Aura del Mar. The location made it so much more fun as we could easily walk into town, which we did once or twice a day. The beach is fine. Steps away from the lounges we were on was a restaurant with the most fabulous fish tacos. The reception area is a nice way of starting and then a parrot greets you on the way to your room. The staff is terrific. Best of all, we were upgraded from a junior suite to a fabulous, large room with an entire kitchen out on the porch. We were totally delighted. Bed was comfortable. Shower was great.

Location, the staff, the room - perfecto

Would recommend Sat, Feb 15, 2014
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.

Dining

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

Would recommend Sun, Feb 9, 2014
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.

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!
