We had a wonderful stay at Aura del Mar. The hotel is beautiful, especially all the (locally made) details. Our room was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The location is perfect, it's quiet but just a 5-10 minute walk to the town's center with many restaurants. It's a perfect destination for a romantic getaway, we'll definitely be back.

Recently returned from a family vacation at the Aura del Mar in April 2017. The room, service and hospitality of the staff was outstanding. Everything we expected and more! The location is perfect to walk to many great restaurants in the evening.

Aura Del Mar Hotel, built on a cliff overlooking Zihuatenejo Bay. In a most luxurious location. Service was amazing, rooms great, staff helpful. Chairs and beach toys available. Was only a 5 minute walk into town, where you could eat a very good meal for under $20 a couple, but miles away when there. Already booked next year for the...

After deciding to have our wedding in Zihuatanejo, and after contacting several wedding planners and hotels in the area, we chose Hotel Aura Del Mar for our wedding venue and accommodation for the week. From the first emails exchanged with the Hotel's wedding planner, Janet, we were thoroughly impressed with her excellent communication as she promptly answered the many questions...

From the moment we booked the room, everything was perfect. Carlos, Miguel and the staff made everything perfect. Miguel took care of the champagne and flowers that I asked for to be there upon our arrival. They exceeded my expectations. We booked the transportation from Aura and Carlos and the driver met us at the airport. We stayed in the...

Aura Del Mar was the perfect choice to enjoy the beach, the sun, and the interesting little town of Zihuatenajo. We could walk into town center along the stone boardwalk and always felt safe. The staff at Aura Del Mar was very friendly and helpful. Carlos scheduled a kayak/eco tour that was awesome. Saw many birds and the tour guide...

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Staff was universally supremely gracious and helpful. Most have been there for many years. In-house restaurant is one of the best in the area, and very reasonably priced (elegant dinner for 4, with cocktails, at the water's edge, was about $100). We were 4 adults, so we stayed in a suite,...

This is a beautiful hotel right on the ocean with beautiful views. I love having my breakfast every morning at the hotel's restaurant on the beach. The rooms are beautiful and have wondering balcony's to look out onto the bay. We will return to this hotel for many years to come. We really like the staff and service that you...

The Aura del Mar has amazing views and is centrally located on Playa La Madera. It is a short walk along the beach to Playa Municipal and shopping, restaurants, etc. The staff is friendly and provided many great recommendations. The Bistro del Mar serves excellent breakfast (the only meal we ate there) with a peaceful view of crashing waves. We...

We enjoyed our week-long stay at Aura del Mar during our kids' spring break. This was our first trip to Zihuatanejo. The hotel is well-located on Playa la Madera beach, a short walk from the village and near a number of good restaurants. However, we concluded that Playa la Ropa beach was preferable, and likely would look for lodging there...

“There are no elevators here so ask for a lower floor if that is a problem. My wife and I both over 60 had no real problems.”

“It is a multi-level hotel, so I don't think there is a bad room in the place!”

“Rooms that are higher up have better views, but more stairs. Ours was one floor above the pool level and we thought it was perfect.”
