Beautiful property with friendly and accommodating staff with a well positioned location. We had the jr king with jacuzzi room number 2. The ac was cold and the bed was comfortable. The sitting area could easily be used as 2 twin beds and made for a nice chill spot while watching tv in the cool. The TV had probably 3... More

My wife and I just completed a week long stay at Aura del Mar and recommend it wholeheartedly. Aura isn't a cookie cutter chain hotel. It's a nicer Mexican boutique hotel that attracts both Mexican and international guests. Every room has an amazing view of Zihuatanejo Bay, and it's location makes for either a quick walk into Zihuatanejo or taxi... More

My husband and I have stayed twice at this hotel and will continue to return to the same wonderful location! Right on the beach with many local restaurants within walking distance. Wonderful staff and beautiful surroundings. If you want to really relax around the pool, in the restaurant or on the beach - this should be your next destination!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a room with jacuzzi over looking the water; a spectacular view. Overall we found this hotel to be excellent value for money. Hotel also has a great pool with a small and fun water slide. The hotel was right on the beach as well and it was an easy walk down a... More

Aura Del Mar was recommended to us by friends that stayed there in Nov of 2014 and it was exactly as they state; staff was incredible, beautiful location, the room (though older) was incredibly clean and comfortable. The hotel is located in close proximity to a great selection of local cuisine or you could just stay and eat at the... More

This was our second time back to Aura del Mar (we knew it as the former Brisas del Mar). It was even better than we had remembered! We were married at the hotel back in 2011 and loved it - the wedding coordinator was incredibly helpful and responsive; the staff catered to all of our guests; the reception food was... More

Just returned from a week at this wonderful hotel. Rooms are spacious including decks that look out over the bay. From the hotel you can walk into town in 10 to 15 minutes along the beach. Staff is incredible and if you have special request Miguel is your guy. Only down side is that it is built into the hill... More

We were looking for a hotel in Zihuatanejo with easy access to the beach and an easy walk to town and got it in the charming Hotel Aura del Mar. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were quickly taken to room #4, a master suite at around the middle level of the complex. It was larger than we expected with... More

5th visit to this great, small hotel for 122 days around first week of March. After a 20 minute cab ride from the airport you'll arrive at the unassuming front entrance that leads into an open-air lobby atop the hotel with a view of the entire Zihau bay. The hotel cascades in terraces down the cliff to the restaurant directly... More

This is a charming hotel with rooms nestled into the hillside. The view from the balcony (with hot tub and chaise chairs) makes you feel like you've arrived in paradise. The room was very clean and the flowers on the bed and in the bathroom upon arrival were a lovely touch. The staff was extremely helpful and answered all of... More
