We loved this hotel. We have been to Zihua a number of times but always at places on La Ropa Beach. This is such a special place that I know we will stay again. The pool area is very nice with an upper deck area away from the pool for shade, views, reading etc. The lobby/entrance is beautiful and a...

I won't repeat what others said about the number of stairs but it does require a moderate level of fitness but hey you can't lie around on the beach loungers all day! We found the hotel staff particularly helpful and pleasant from the check-in to the check-out. Whatever small issue that we had were corrected with a smile thrown in....

I discovered this outstandingly beautiful property 10 years ago and returned for a special birthday in January of 2017. I found that stupendous service, gorgeous grounds and wonderful relaxing atmosphere had not changed one bit. It will be a winter vacation destination for me each year from now on and I was truly disappointed that I hadn't booked a longer...

We were reluctant to write a review on this wonderful little hotel. As another client stated, let's just keep this little secret to ourselves. But that wouldn't be fair to the truly outstanding staff at this hotel. Like many others, we've traveled the world and customer service is huge to us. This hotel has it in spades!! From the professional...

We did a lot of research looking for the right place for my 40th birthday. This hotel has it all. Incredible views, service, and atmosphere. It's close to town without the noise and right on a very chill and beautiful beach. The resturant is great for breakfast, lunch and a upscale dinner. There are a lot of stairs but they...

If you want quiet, Zihuat feel to your stay, this is it. Great rooms, excellent and friendly staff and a very good beach. 107 steps from the lobby to the beach but not all rooms have that far to go. We visited the other beaches and decided we liked the laid-back local feel of this one the best.

As others have already stated, Aura del Mar is a wonderful hotel, with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, a great restaurant, and a fabulous location and views. We recently visited for the first time over the Christmas holiday. My husband, daughter (age 11), and I shared the Zihuatlan suite with my parents. It was perfect. We each had our own...

Occasionally one comes across a place so good you are not sure you want to share it with others - could become too popular or more expensive. However, it would be unfair not to draw attention to the Aura del Mar. This is not top end luxury 5 star and as others have mentioned it does have stairs so not...

We are back for our second stay and what better welcome than for the staff to know this, give us the same room as last year, and have spelled out on the bed with flower 🌺, "welcome home"? Anybody say 2018?
