My husband, 13 year old son and myself spent four nights at Brisas del Mar. The weather was sunny, hot, and a bit humid. The restaurant was delicious and the service was outstanding. The pool was clean and there were always chairs and lounges available. My son loved the water slide. The room was spacious and clean, and the service was good. If we needed something in our room (like an extra pillow or blanket), it would arrive within seconds of our request. The beach, although not the biggest in the area, was nice. Some days the waves were bigger than others. However, because the surf was close to shore, the boogy boarding wasn't the best. We enjoyed walking to Zihua which was only about ten minutes from the hotel. The town was much bigger than I expected and was not just a tourist town but a real town where there was a fish market every morning and lots of natives walking around town doing their business. There were also lots of tourist shops located closer to the beach. We spent one morning at Playa las Gatos, which is only accessible by boat at the town pier. There really isn't much to do there besides lie on the lounges and do some snorkeling (which wasn't very good). We also went by taxi to Playa del la Ropa, a beautiful long beach which I highly recommend spending some time at. We spent one evening at Ixtapa, where we walked around the outdoor shopping area and had dinner. Being there confirmed that it was not the place for me. Too contrived and unnatural.
