Ixtapa is a small beach paradise in Mexico and Las Brisas is a jewel. After staying a number of times at this hotel, I felt compelled to write my opinion. This property is located somewhat away from rest of the hotel resorts/shopping/dining area of Ixtapa. It can be a 15 min walk to other resort areas or 3 min drive by a taxi. The hotel is very good and pays attention to the safety of guests.
Talking about the rooms, all rooms have ocean view and a spacious balcony. The standard rooms have a small sitting area which is very convenient to relax or use as a work space. I have also stayed in a Junior Suite and I liked it a lot - certainly bar better than other hotel suites in the area I have stayed in. A separate sitting/dining and work area and a separate bedroom is what it makes a large suite. Additionally the suites have a jacuzzi at the balcony which gives an amazing view of the sea and can be enjoyed during the sunset with some champagne.
The beds are very relaxing and the wifi speeds are extremely nice. The bathrooms in the suites are larger, but I had a leaky shower (not a big deal). I also enjoyed the English channels on the TV which are somewhat rare in Mexico. Overall the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. This coupled with a terrace sized private balcony makes it perfect.
The hotel beach is private and the water is shallow - so certainly can be enjoyed by everyone. The food options in beach menu are though not attractive. The beach chairs are clean and usually available most of the time. The hotel staff is polite, helpful and speaks good English. I also dined at the Italian restaurant on site - I found the cuisine very delicious and well prepared. Some of the options were pricey but overall value to money is satisfactory.
I will return to this resort again when I am traveling to my business in a nearby town.
