We were fortunate to get upgraded to the Don Augustin Villa due to a mixup with our reservations. We had such an amazing and relaxing time with our own pool and lounge area and ended up spending a lot of time in the villa. Carlos at the front desk was always helpful and extremely patient with us. The staff was... More

This was a fantastic hotel with everything you might need. The best part is the walk down the stairs directly onto the beach. The cost also included breakfast at the beach restaurant. Fantastic view with great service and food. Well worth the price and will be going back. Only negative was the WiFi service was a bit spotty at times... More

Because of the rooms, the location, the staff and the food (both in the hotel and nearby), we will always choose to stay here. Rooms are nicely done (with sweet touches like a gift, petals on the bed, and I asked to have two Margaritas waiting (as a joke) and guess what? They were. The staff is terrific. Rooms are... More

Boutique hotel built on mountain side by the beach. All rooms unique and decorated with style. Employees speak English and are always available to help in any way. Restaurant in on the beach, but not owned by the hotel. Breakfast included can be arranged with the hotel. Nice touch. Small area on the beach secluded with longchairs for guest. Very... More

This review is long overdue, but my experience was so memorable I wanted to make sure to get it out for others who may be considering a destination wedding. Let me start by saying this is THE BEST place if you are looking for an intimate setting where you truly get authentic Mexico with all the amenities of a bigger... More

We loved our stay at the Aura del Mar. We stayed for one week in January 2015. Our room was a Master Suite. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the view was AMAZING! We used the jacuzzi twice. What a treat! This hotel doesn't skimp on any of the amenities. Air conditioning, large shower/bathtub, evening turn down... More

Returned for second time in two years to find the hotel and staff as delightful as before. The location, views and amenities are perfect for a relaxing troublefree vacation. Minor quibbles are spotty wifi (but always strong in common areas) and less than hot water, though still okay for comfortable showers I do like hot! There are 93 steps from... More

We stayed here Christmas week 2014. The hotel was absolutely the best part of the vacation. We loved the overgrown vegetation, the colors, and the way it cascades down the hill to the beach. It has a definite “Mexican” character, which we appreciated: welcoming, not stuffy, a little faded at the edges (but beautifully maintained). We reserved a "junior suite... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. Feels like Mexico. Staff super friendly. Beach access. Great location for walking into town. Food at hotel restaurant some of the best in town though a bit more pricey than many of the other options (skip the pizzas and opt for local dishes). The staff will accommodate off menu requests too. Also try Carmelita's in... More

This small and charming hotel was the hallmark of our wonderful family vacation. Everything was so perfect I don't even know where to start, though I suppose at the beginning would be best....Last year our extended family made a collective decision to spend Christmas and New Years away from home, and my husband had a hunch Zihuatanejo would be the...
