Very nice and comfortable hotel. Easy access to the sandy beach. Great view of the bay from our room. Food was great, and the service excellent. The pool was nice and had a water slide. Only drawback is the 95 stairs to the restaurant and beach so if you are physically challenged, that may be a concern.

My family and I (10 of us) arrived Christmas afternoon for just a one night stay. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist, and all of our rooms were ready. My husband and I stayed in Room 1, The Acapulco room. The views were stunning and the room was beautiful! There was a jacuzzi on our balcony! After we were...

We stayed at Hotel Aura del Mar in Zihuatanejo for a week in November. The staff there was the best ever and always remembered our names with a smile. Everyone was so helpful and anticipated our needs. Our spacious suite, and I believe all the rooms, have magnificent views of the bay which is lovely in the morning sunrise and...

This was our second stay at Aura del Mar. The rooms are clean and cozy, and every room overlooks the beach and picturesque Zihuatanejo Bay. Miguel and the rest of the staff are wonderful. What more can you ask for. And the Bistro del Mar restaurant attached to the hotel has the bet guacamole in the world. Just know that,...

This hotel was just perfect for us: on the beach, comfortable, beautiful setting, close to town and a wonderful staff that worked very hard to make our stay enjoyable and easy. As has been stated in other reviews, this is not a hotel for those that cannot climb stairs because you will be climbing them no matter where your room...

We experienced the friendliness of the staff from the time of our arrival until our departure 5 days later. Rooms were clean and comfortable, with great views. We had a junior suite with a hot tub and enjoyed sitting in the tub, looking out over the bay, watching boats bob in the surf. Easy access to local dining. The only...

My husband and I stayed here a week in December. The ocean view from the hotel is lovely. Especially from the top floor common area where they have happy hour every day at 5. The hotel has a pool with a slide which both kids and adults enjoyed. There are lounge chairs and hammocks around the pool area and restaurant...

We were lucky that we had a great deal booking with booking.com and payed less than USdollar 100,-- per night for a standard room. The hotel is well located and we had a room just in the middle of the stairs. This meant that it was not a great deal to go down to the restaurant or to go up...

Stayed with my mom who has trouble walking. Definitely a lot of stairs which was a little difficult for her but the staff was very friendly and super helpful. Everyone spoke English and that was really nice. The hotel is on the side of a mountain and was absolutely beautiful. The view from the room was stunning. Cleaning service was...

We ended up here last minute due to an AirBNB fail. (Note to self: Never rent an AirBNB with the word Shack in it. :-/ ) Anyway, this place restored our faith in the quaint beachfront quality of Zihuatanejo. We had a room with a jaccuzi out on the deck and it was awesome. This is a charming smaller hotel...
