We stayed here during a quiet week in December. Our room was comfy and pretty, and perfectly made up for us every day. Our balcony and ocean views were gorgeous. The nooks and crannies of the hotel are very charming. There are some nice features like ping pong, a cranky parrot, and a turtle living in a little pool by... More

Lovely rooms. Nice staff. Good beach. December is a lovely and inexpensive time to visit this area. Fabulous and tempting beach massages. Good food. Rooms at the hotel have great views and the location is excellent. Near town. Nice promenade.

The Aura del Mar is a marvelous mexican style hotel with huge comfortable rooms with panoramic views and extremely lovely staff. We are looking forward to come back. Highly recommended!!! Their only weak point is that they allow guests to reserve sunbeds. One couple did use them the whole day. This is absolutely fine to us. But two other couples... More

We loved our stay at this charming boutique hotel on Playa La Madera. The hotel is very comfortable, pretty and in a great location. The staff is abundantly helpful. We found the beach front restaurant to be excellent. The swimming in the bay was perfection. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay any longer. Next time we will book... More

We stayed here just one night at the end of our recent trip it Zihua and we really enjoyed this hotel. Warm and friendly staff, beautiful Mexican decor, private patios for the rooms, air conditioning, great pool and lounging area and a restaurant on the beach with impeccable service and good food. This hotel is close to everything and we... More

There is no way to explain my love for the Aura Del Mar. The decision to get married there was the second best decision right behind the marriage itself. We brought 100 of our family and friends down to celebrate over the course of a week and they are still raving about their experience. The employees that put on events... More

Over three days we celebrated my cousin's birthday at Aura del Mar. We were 50 people staying at the hotel. We received an amazing service, ate delicious food (chilaquiles for breakfast, ceviche cocktail at lunch time and great fish, lobster and seafood for dinner). The restaurant is top class, service is spotless, rooms have a view to the Bay, and... More

This hotel is located within easy walking distance of downtown and local restaurants. The views are breathtaking. The staff is friendly, though not fluent in English. The room is nice but not a 5 star American room. The towels were rough and we did not have hot water until I asked for it. The room was always clean. 2 bottles... More

My wife booked our 1-week stay here and I hadn't taken the time to read the reviews prior to us coming. I'm glad I didn't. I was so shocked with the jaw-dropping beauty of the facilities and ocean views that I'm not sure all the reviews would've prepared me. Our room was amazing with plenty of space to spread out...

This hotel is really the best. The rooms are great, with lots of space, great view to the ocean and perfect either for families or on a romantic trip. I travelled with my daughter and parents, we stayed at a junior suite and we love it! The view is spectacular, the room even had a jacuzzi on the terrace and... More
