I have stayed here many times over the years, its the best location on La Madera beach, a pleasant walk to town. Rooms are older, giving it more of a relaxed feel. The restaurant Bistro Del Mar on the beach attached to the hotel is one of the top ten in Zihuatanejo, nothing better than breakfast near the beach people... More

We came to Zihuatanejo with friends for a seaside holiday and we had booked into a resort hotel on Playa la Ropa. Our rooms there were not at all what we expected, the worst we had ever stayed in actually, and we decided to see if there were any available at Aura del Mar where we had experienced a lovely...

This is my 5th stay here. The location can't be beat. On the beach and a close walk to town. Yes there are many steps, but you are on vacation no need to be in a hurry to go any where. Every room with views of the bay. You can chill by the pool or the beach and if you... More

We spent 10 glorious days here in January 2016 for our honeymoon. The rooms were impeccable with authentic Mexican touches and colors. The staff were so friendly and helpful with all our needs. Every room has a huge balcony with beautiful ocean views. The pool and beach were very relaxing. The hotel restaurant was amazing as well with delicious food... More

This was our first trip to Zihuatanejo, and we are SO grateful we chose to stay at Aura del Mar! We arrived from Colorado which is COLD in January, and walked into a lobby which is open to the warm open breezes - even in January! What a week. The reception was so friendly. All the staff is great. We... More

Stayed here for 10 nights , Dec 26, 2015 until Jan 5, 2016. I could not have been happier with my choice. It is a little scary to choose a boutique hotel over the big chains at times because of misleading information or misleading reviews. However, this choice was BETTER then expected. First the room,, was large, SUPER clean, large... More

We live this hotel! Miguel is the best hotel manager ever. Juan Carlos remembers every guest's name. The service is personalized and personal. Breakfast is delicious, rooms are great, view is spectacular, pool is sparkling. Miguel loves his hotel and it is why we keep coming back!

Hate all-inclusives as much as we do? Stay here! We loved Aura del Mar, it's just a really well-run hotel. Perfect for kids, as the ocean is very gentle and the terrific swimming pool has a really fun waterslide for them. And the restaurant is great, the breakfasts were the best we had in our 16 days traveling around Mexico.... More

I am doing my review very late. We are now planning another trip to Ixtpa/Zihuatanejo and I realized I didn't do my review from our last trip. We stayed at the Aura del Mar for 5 nights in February 2015. When we entered the lobby, my jaw dropped at the absolutely gorgeous view. The hotel is built into a hill... More

Just returned from a pleasurable stay at Hotel Aura Del Mar. It is a small hotel on Playa Madera. Great location, about a fifteen minute walk along the beachfront to town and shops. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, although our bathroom was a bit on the small side. The grounds are luxuriant and very well-kept with foliage everywhere.... More
