If you want quiet, Zihuat feel to your stay, this is it. Great rooms, excellent and friendly staff and a very good beach. 107 steps from the lobby to the beach but not all rooms have that far to go. We visited the other beaches and decided we liked the laid-back local feel of this one the best.

As others have already stated, Aura del Mar is a wonderful hotel, with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, a great restaurant, and a fabulous location and views. We recently visited for the first time over the Christmas holiday. My husband, daughter (age 11), and I shared the Zihuatlan suite with my parents. It was perfect. We each had our own...

Occasionally one comes across a place so good you are not sure you want to share it with others - could become too popular or more expensive. However, it would be unfair not to draw attention to the Aura del Mar. This is not top end luxury 5 star and as others have mentioned it does have stairs so not...

We are back for our second stay and what better welcome than for the staff to know this, give us the same room as last year, and have spelled out on the bed with flower 🌺, "welcome home"? Anybody say 2018?

Very nice and comfortable hotel. Easy access to the sandy beach. Great view of the bay from our room. Food was great, and the service excellent. The pool was nice and had a water slide. Only drawback is the 95 stairs to the restaurant and beach so if you are physically challenged, that may be a concern.

My family and I (10 of us) arrived Christmas afternoon for just a one night stay. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist, and all of our rooms were ready. My husband and I stayed in Room 1, The Acapulco room. The views were stunning and the room was beautiful! There was a jacuzzi on our balcony! After we were...

We stayed at Hotel Aura del Mar in Zihuatanejo for a week in November. The staff there was the best ever and always remembered our names with a smile. Everyone was so helpful and anticipated our needs. Our spacious suite, and I believe all the rooms, have magnificent views of the bay which is lovely in the morning sunrise and...

This was our second stay at Aura del Mar. The rooms are clean and cozy, and every room overlooks the beach and picturesque Zihuatanejo Bay. Miguel and the rest of the staff are wonderful. What more can you ask for. And the Bistro del Mar restaurant attached to the hotel has the bet guacamole in the world. Just know that,...

This hotel was just perfect for us: on the beach, comfortable, beautiful setting, close to town and a wonderful staff that worked very hard to make our stay enjoyable and easy. As has been stated in other reviews, this is not a hotel for those that cannot climb stairs because you will be climbing them no matter where your room...

We experienced the friendliness of the staff from the time of our arrival until our departure 5 days later. Rooms were clean and comfortable, with great views. We had a junior suite with a hot tub and enjoyed sitting in the tub, looking out over the bay, watching boats bob in the surf. Easy access to local dining. The only...
