“Las Brisas es pefecto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you like Pina Coladas(or Margheritas) and taking walks on the beach, If you like glorious sunny days and a spot on view of the sun setting in the Pacific(always to applause) surrounded by lovely music and a convivial crowd,If you like sunning and swimming in indigo pools, if you like friendly staff and excellent food and service then Las Brisas Ixtapa is your place. We have returned here five times and have always gone into full vacation mode on day one as there is absolutely nothing that gets in the way of being deliciously lazy and content. On the practical side. lots of hot water no matter what time of day it is, beautiful products, lots of big thirsty towels, turn down service with sweets and sweet notes on the pillow. Room is spacious with a seating area as well as the large balcony.(really hot there in the late afternoon,an umbrella would be nice) but perfect for waking up in the shimmering soft early morning air. Coffee is $5 a day if you are not on all inclusive so it is a good idea to bring your own coffee and filters. The little market opens at 9AM so if you like to eat breakfast in your room, you might want to stock up the day before. Breakfast is a$25 buffet which is better than ordering a la carte as that adds up to $25 quickly. We most often had lunch on the beach or by the pools and dinner in town. Zhijuatenejo is the place to experience old Mexico of the fishing village variety, it is the "real deal" Eating on the beach is romantic and lovely and the seafood is very reasonable and freshly caught. All of the staff at the hotel are friendly and warm but Maritza Garcia, theChief Concierge is the best of the best, warm and welcoming and most accomodating. Be sure to check out the lobby bulletin board for the daily question, there is always a prize. Looking forward to being at Las Brisas soon again. No worries on the weather, the sun shines all of the time. For the most romantic of evenings try Villa de la Selva, just a short walk up the hill from the hotel.

Room Tip: the 16th floor was great

We returned for a second time to Las Brisas last week and absolutely loved our stay. The hotel is beautiful, impressive, clean and provides amazing sunset views. The staff is incredible, always nice, courteous, smiling and polite. The food is unbelievable.

I honestly have no bad comments at all. Not once did I feel like something needed improvement, maybe just the mattresses, but even then, it's not that big of an issue.

We were very sad to leave and I can't wait untill we return again! Thanks Las Brisas!!

Room Tip: All the rooms have private balconies with Pacific ocean views. Simply perfect!

We absolutely loved our time at this resort! This was our first time at Las Brisas and have been to five other all inclusive resorts in Mexico - on the Mayan, Huatulco, Los Cabos and in Ixtapa, but we stayed at the Barcelo last time. This was by far our favourite but I was concerned before we came because of the reviews on this website. Most of the reviews are bang on but I didn't understand the billing at the restaurants or what was really included in the "all inclusive". Some of the reviews made me wonder whether we would have bottled water in our room or coffee and I really didn't want to have a "bill" at the end of our stay. So this review is to clarify for others who have never been here before and are on the "all inclusive" plan. The room is simple - There is a coffee machine (four cups) with a package of regular and decaffeinated coffee stocked daily along with two 1 1/2 litre bottles of water. In the fridge there are three pops, three small bottles of water and three "mini" Corona's which is also stocked daily. All of this is included in the "all inclusive" package. The room had a safe. The restaurants are awesome! For breakfast, there is only one restaurant open - the Bellavista. It is a buffet and one of the best we've had. Everything you can imagne. For lunch there are two options - the Solarium (which is by the pools) or Las Brisas 1 which is right on the beach - both have menus and the Solarium also has a small buffet. For dinner there is the Bellavista - which has a small buffet or menu and no reservations needed. The other three dinner restaurants are the Portofino (Italian), Las Brisas 2 which is outside on a terrace and the Mexicana. There is no limit to how many times you go to these but reservations are needed. All of them are excellent. All of the menus in all of the restaurants have appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, desserts and specialty coffees. Now the billing - every meal you go to you have to give your room number and you get a bill at the end of the meal in a small folder. You have to write down the amount of the bill, your tip, your name and your room number and sign it. You leave the original in the folder and keep the other copy for your records. We always put zero for the tip and enclosed cash for the tip as we didn't want to have to pay anything when we checked out at the end of our stay. Now that we know the system, next time we go we will not bring as many peso's with us and will pay all of the tips with Visa at the end of our stay. I saved all of my copies and was kind of worried what would happen at checkout but we had no problem checking out - zero balance.
We were on the 16th floor which is the non-smoking floor and loved it. The view was fantastic! The room was a bit dated but very clean. Maid service was excellent. Every day we had either beautiful towell art or fresh flowers - so nice to come back to! We didn't spend any time at the pools but they looked beautiful and refreshing. The beach was awesome - totally private - only access is through the hotel. There were plenty of palapas even when the hotel was fully booked for the weekend of February 1st which is a Mexican holiday. I wouldn't recommend the beach for young children - it was kind of hard to get in and out of the waves but the water was warm and we had a lot of fun playing in the water! The sunsets are the best in Mexico! Ask the lifeguard if they are releasing turtles because that is an awesome experience - we saw it twice while we were there. We also took the "nature walk" which was on Wednesday and Sundays - there was no charge but you do have to register with the concierge as there is a 15 person limit. It was fantastic - we learned so much. As stated there are lots of stairs but we loved them - they are all stone walks in the jungle and look so natural. Beautiful to walk through. The elevator is at one end of the hotel and the pools and tennis courts at the other end so there is a fair amount of walking but it is all in a natural setting and you can hear the birds singing away while you are walking. There is no nightly entertainment or pool entertainment which we loved - When we go to Mexico we want to hear the ocean waves crashing and the birds singing and just relax. The staff are amazing - they did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and it didn't depend on tips - most of our meals we had no idea who our main server was because whenever a plate had to be cleared away, or more coffee or wine poured, someone was there to do it. They also all seemed to really be enjoying their job - they were all laughing and joking with each other, which is fun to watch. Checkin was a breeze. Maritza, the concierge is a delight and very good at her job and all of the staff, no matter where you were, all nodded, smiled and said "hola". The only downside that we found and this is no fault of the hotel is that there were large golf tournaments booked at the resort while we were there and we found that they booked large tables at the a la cartes and were very loud in a small restaurant so it was hard to have a conversation, let alone have a romantic dinner at the end of a perfect day! Also, as stated in other reviews, if you have mobility problems this resort would be a problem as all restaurants have stairs to navigate.
We will definitely return to Las Brisas - they exceeded all of our expectations and we had a wonderful holiday!

We just got back from our seventh trip to Ixtapa and wish we could have just stayed and not come back. We have stayed at Las Brisas six of our seven visits and love the hotel for its private setting and lush tropical surroundings. It feels like you are staying on the edge of jungle right on the beach. My wife and I love the adult pool as children under the age of sixteen are not allowed even on the pool deck. One day when we were at the pool someone carried an umbrella stroller down to the pool and within 15 minutes they were asked to go to the family pool. Bravo the the management. This is not a place to visit if you don't enjoy a reasonably long walk to the pool. We like it because it helps burn off those vacation calories. The Mexican fine dining restaurant El Mexicano was something we discovered this visit. Absolutely delicious cuisine. A great find that we are sorry we haven't found prior to this visit. The rooms and lobby are very well maintained as well as the pool area. The housekeeping is done on a daily basis with the option of using the same linens to save water. We did this every other day. Turn down service every night was very nice to come back to after a trip to Ixtapa proper or Zihuataneo. The only complaint I have is that they charge for coffee setup in the room. We booked this vacation for about $2500 USD for one week and for that price I feel they could provide free coffee in the room. We did not use this as we have been there many times and just brought instant coffee with us. This is a trivial complaint that will not keep us from returning to our home away from home again. We absolutely love this resort.

Our first visit to this resort and hope there will be more. We chose Las Brisas as had previously enjoyed a sister resort - Las Hadas, Manzanilla. The resort, beach and area has much going for it. Yes there are stairs, yes there are stone walkways to the pool and lunch restaurant, yes the ocean has an undertow, yes it is very quite - all of these things is what makes this resort unique and enchanting and why we loved it! We loved hearing the crashing waves, feeling like we had the beach or pool to ourselves, watching the sunset and enjoying fine dining and attentive, gracious service. Any request was simply not a problem (though the resort was at less than 50% capacity). The unlimited a la carte dinners at the 3 fine dining restaurants was the best we have had. Make sure you go 'all inclusive' as the drinks and meals would be very pricey. It will be a definate step down in 2014 when/IF the included dining is limited to only 3 a la cartes per week. This really must be reconsidered by management and renegotiated by Air Canada - it will influence our decision for a return visit (not interested in any buffet). We also were part of a turtle release which was extra special. Overall - excellent.

Room Tip: Make sure you take a taxi into Zihuatanejo ($10. includes tip) early evening to relax with a refresh...

We just returned from another wonderful stay at Las Brisas. We have been coming here with friends for the past ten years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The location is unparalled, sitting on a lovely secluded beach, surrounded by tropical foliage, unusual birds and an occasional iguana.

The rooms are spacious, and all are ocean front with large patios. Watching the magnificent sunsets from our room or the lobby bar each evening is a special treat.

Not only do we enjoy this hotel's magical location, but we also appreciate its dedicated and caring staff, who always makes us feel so welcomed and special. Every year they unfailingly help to make our vacation a truly memorable one. Each day Alberto, one of the beach waiters, would automatically bring us our favorite drinks and snacks as soon as he saw us sit down at a table. Maritza, the concierge, always made time to answer our questions and provide us with useful information and suggestions. And every day we looked forward to seeing Julian, one of the porters, who would greet us with a genuinely warm and friendly smile and kind words.

We are already anticipating a return to our Las Brisas "home" and "friends" next year!
