We originally booked for two weeks but extended to three weeks we enjoyed it so much. Great location on the Playa Madera beach. Excellent helpful and very friendly staff where nothing was too much for them to handle at a minutes notice. The rooms large, comfortable and the views amazing. Daily flower decorations on the bed, a lovely touch. We... More

As an avid beach goer/traveler, I was excited to Zihuatenejo! I didn't know what to expect but noticed there was a big swing between hotel costs. As I furthered my research I was DELIGHTED with the choice I made to stay at Aura del Mar over the other properties I was considering! Appointed with a beautiful open air lobby, awesome... More

We stayed at 'Aura del Mar' for four nights and we were extremely happy with our choice. The hotel is not very big, has a lot of vegetation, large rooms with very nice balconies, a private beach, a nice swimming pool and particularly friendly staff. In terms of rooms I think all are about the same, there are no rooms... More

I stayed 2 nights in this lovely hotel on the hill overlooking Madera beach in Zihuatanejo. Loved the sea breeze and the views. The service is excellent, I received a late check out on my final day as a courtesy. The restaurant on the beach has great pizzas cooked on a wood fire and breakfast is fine too. The balconies...

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous giving a vibe of Old Mexico mixed with boutique touches like fresh hibiscus on your pillows. The staff are super friendly, and most speak at least some English. Each room has a private balcony and hot tub, along with a view of the ocean.

We spent 3 nights and loved it! If you can walk up stairs ( there is no elevator) you will love everything about this place! It is on a hill overlooking the the z bay... On the edge, in the perfect location. Great pool, restaurant, service.... Love it!

Today is my last night here. I just told the lady that my flight is not until 4pm and she gave me late checkout no problem tomorrow. I have nothing but good things to say about this lovely hotel and staff. If you are looking for a big resort go to Ixtapa but if you looking for boutique with old... More

We stayed in a balcony room facing the beach/waves. Lots of stairs to go down to the beach - loved the extra mini workout. Oversized jacuzzi tub on the balcony was fun and private. Service was great. Really enjoyed walking into town from the beach and shopping in the village was fun too. Very local feel. Not so touristy

Like you, I pored over reviews for places to stay in Zihuatanejo. We were looking for something affordable, but nice. I toyed with several hotels before choosing Hotel Aura del Mar. As my title suggests, we chose wisely. If you are teetering or tottering on a place, teeter no more. This is it! We loved the tender loving care the... More

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
