We reserved a master suite at Aura del Mar and were thrilled with our room, the deck, Zihuatanejo bay view and wonderful service. Very comfortable bed, roomy bathroom, and a handy fridge for beverages / snacks. We enjoyed sitting out on our deck for breakfast, beverages, sunning and stargazing! Wonderful location with the beach and also an easy walk to... More

I don't know what was better... the charming vibe, awesome location, amazing food or the excellent service. Also amazing, the beach vendors right our front of Aura Del Mar. Great vibes, awesome snorkeling close by, and wonderful masseuses. Wonderful place. Highly recommended.

I've been to Zihua many times and, in on prior trips, had walked past the Brisas del Mar/Aura del Mar from the beach side. It had always caught my eye and when planning my most recent trip, fishing with my son, I booked the Zihualtan Suite for a week. This was a great set-up having two bedrooms, two baths, a... More

This hotel is fabulous!! There is so much detail, Mexican colorful personality, clean, great views, friendly staff and the rooms are wonderful. There are not many rooms and they are all different. It had direct access to Madera Beach. Plus it's own pool, hammocks by the sea, and private beach area. Great location. Will be coming back for sure.

My best friend and I spent a long weekend at Aura Del Mar for a girl's trip. The view from the outdoor lobby is breathtaking. The staff is friendly and we had a great room - comfy king size bed, nice shower, plenty of space and reliable housekeeping. We were there in October when it is still rainy season, so... More

Staying in Ixtapa but wanted to spend a few days in Zihua without the to and fro travel (which isn't a big deal but can disrupt plans). Checked in early as we had a cooking class and everyone was more than happy to take our bags and give us water. Friendly, warm check in. Came back later and Carlos showed... More

We booked this trip for our 30th Wedding anniversary because we stayed in the past and loved our experience! From check-in to check-out everything exceeded our expectations!

I've been to this hotel 4 times and figured it is time to write a review. Love everything from the courteous staff the moment you arrive, the food, the parrot that greets you, the location, view and the water slide! The front desk is wonderful.
