We stayed in a 1 bedroom/2 bath unit in building 8. The view was beautiful and the sound of the waves was so soothing. The entire resort is very relaxed and comfortable and the staff is really helpful. Self-serve laundry facilities are free and there is an ice machine in every building. The "paint your own" mexican pottery was really...

This was my second visit to this wonderful beachfront resort, and I have to say I was very disappointed with their unit assignment for my sister who had recently had a double knee replacement. Don't even think about coming here if you need assistance with mobility issues. We had emailed and sent a request via facebook that my sister would...

So first time in Zih. Did not know what to expect. Clearly it's a hike to get there, whether you go thru Dallas, LAX, Houston or Mexico City. But well worth the hike. The property is very safe and the units aware amazing. The staff could not be more friendly, food was great at the bar and the restaurant. The...

Just got back from a 5 day stay at the Embarc. It was beautiful! We had a 2-bedroom suite for our family of five, and it was incredibly spacious. There were 3 full bathrooms, a full-size table with chairs, kitchenette and living room area. The doors opened to a large balcony with lounge chairs, a towel rack for drying wet...

My mom and I stayed at this hotel, last May when it was just changing from a Club Intrawest Property to the Embarc. This hotel is excellent with all rooms having a beautiful view of the bay. I will advise that this hotel had 204 steps from the beach to our room, but the hotel has a golf cart that...

We have stayed here three times over the last five years. Each time it seems to improve. This last time we stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. It was wonderful. It had two beautiful balconies overlooking the bay. Rooms were clean and well cared for. We had maid service everyday. The front desk was helpful in providing advices....

This was our second time to the Embarc property and I can say for sure that we'll be back again before too long. Friendly, helpful staff; well maintained property; the best location in Playa Ropas; and gorgeous, huge suites! You can walk into the ocean in front of the resort and snorkel around the rocks to see all manner of...

This is my second time returning to Embarc (previously Club Intrawest). This time I traveled with my adult daughter for her 30th birthday. We exchanged through Interval for a 1 bdrm/2 bath. Same as I reserved last year. This unit number was 303 (last year it was 204 - I believe). The unit was virtually laid out the same way...

So very impressed in every way! We were in a studio unit. Could not believe the size .... It was huge! The partial kitchen was nice to have fruit and coffee in the morning. Every detail was thought of when designing this place! Resort staff was friendly and attentive. We didn't eat meals on the resort (except our first morning)...

Great weather, great location right on the beach, staff is very accommodating and appreciative you are there. Since it is on the beach, you have access to massages on the beach and other beach activities with in a very short walk or just a great choice of ocean front restaurants on the sand for snacks or dinner to people watch...
