Staying in Ixtapa but wanted to spend a few days in Zihua without the to and fro travel (which isn't a big deal but can disrupt plans). Checked in early as we had a cooking class and everyone was more than happy to take our bags and give us water. Friendly, warm check in. Came back later and Carlos showed... More

We booked this trip for our 30th Wedding anniversary because we stayed in the past and loved our experience! From check-in to check-out everything exceeded our expectations! We were pleasantly surprised that after 5 years there were still a lot of staff members that we remembered from our last visit. Miguel helped us arrange our reservation prior to our arrival... More

I've been to this hotel 4 times and figured it is time to write a review. Love everything from the courteous staff the moment you arrive, the food, the parrot that greets you, the location, view and the water slide! The front desk is wonderful.

The Aura is excellent for a beachside hotel that offers large rooms with balcony overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay. With over 70 steps down to the beach and a winding ocean path to the Centro, this location is beautiful and provides a vigorous walk that off sets the food consumed on vacation. The staff is amazing, professional, and knowledgeable about history, etc...We... More

Thanks Carlos and the whole staff for welcoming us, taking care of everything we needed, and pointed us in the right direction everyday! The hotel is very clean and well kept. The views are awesome from every level. The restaurant is excellent. We were close enough to walk into town when ever we wanted. We had a great spa treatment...... More

Cozy, private, friendly and HAPPY! Aura is a great place to unwind and just chill. A beautiful location, hospitable staff, and amenities most anyone would ever need - beach, pool, food, drink - AND "downtown" is just a :10 walk away. We'll return.
