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

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. When you pull up, it doesn't look like much....but then you walk through the front doors and your jaw drops. You're met by a wonderful staff, a cool ocean breeze and magnificent views. The rooms all have balconies that overlook the bay and they all feel so authentic. They are clean... More

I've been home for 48 hours and already want to plan my trip back to Zihuat. Especially to Aura Del Mar. The grounds are lush, romantic, very clean, and feel so much more authentic than the hotels that line the coasts of Ixtapa. Every staff member I encountered spoke at least some english, and were very, very accommodating. 1. We... More

This is my favorite place in Zihuatanejo. The other reviews are not exaggerating: it is wonderful. Definitively, there are a lot of stairs, but they are not very steep and that means all the rooms have a great view. The staff is really friendly and accommodating. I have no doubt that I'll stay in this hotel the next time I... More

We stayed here for five nights in May. We had an amazing view from our room, #17, which on the top level of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were there off season so the first few days we were practically alone, which we did not mind at all. It was very peaceful and you can... More

I enjoyed this hotel a lot. I came by myself before I was to meet my boyfriend in DF. I was upgraded to the 2nd largest room in the hotel. The front desk was very accommodating and tried to understand my Spanish. I never ate in the restaurant because I preferred eating where the locals do. One night the front... More

We found Aura del Mar on the web and knew it was the experience we were looking for in Zihua. We wanted old world charm with some modern conveniences, a location close to town so we could walk places, and also private beach front for chilling out. We got all this and more. The front desk staff was amazing, especially... More

I just returned home after having my wedding at the beautiful Aura Del Mar! My wedding was everything I have ever dreamed about and more. It was absolutely perfect! The hotel is so beautiful and the staff so nice and helpful. Janet is the wedding coordinator for the hotel. I really cannot say enough positive things about her. She took... More

We've been to Zihua 7-8x since 2005 & always stay at Aura del Mar (formerly Hotel Brisas del Mar). We even got married there. The location, views, rooms, friendly staff & simple tranquility is hard to beat! We absolutely love it & while I'm happy more people are appreciating the area & hotel, do want it to stay a secret.

Stayed 2 nights in a junior suite with jacuzzi. At check in we were given cold face cloths and bottled water. Had room 6 - it was clean and provided a great view of the pool and beach from the deck. Lots of traditional Mexican charm both in the room and throughout the hotel - friendly and helpful staff. The... More
