My mom found Aura del Mar after lots of online searching to host our small wedding group of about 30 people. I cannot even explain how wonderful the staff, the grounds and the experience was for everyone. First of all, the hotel is beautiful. It has an authentic Mexican feel with beautiful, colorful embroidery and art, greenery and flowers, set...

Spent a fantastic 5 days there for my husband's birthday. I was a little nervous because I booked it based solely on online reviews - and none made mention of its openness to gay couples. However, there were at least three or four gay couples there during our stay, and the staff - and fellow guests - were all awesome....

The hotel was nice and the staff more than willing to help make our stay memorable. Madera beach was excellent and just at the bottom of the hotel. I must say that if you can't do LOTS of stairs then this may not be the right place for you. I didn't count but from our room to the beach was...

This lovely boutique hotel is located right on Playa Madera, a wonderful swimming beach in beautiful Zihuatenajo. It is full of character and charm as the rooms are terraced up the hill and each has a view of the bay. We especially enjoyed the lush greenery and running water incorporated into the stairways and walkways. The hotel has a lovely...

Very nice property and friendly staff. The view from the lower level was not great as the palm trees were blocking it. The rooms on the upper level had a great view of the Bay. The restaurant was good and breakfast was included each day. The pool was nice and the water temperature refreshing. Plenty of places to have sun...

A boutique hotel of about 32 bedrooms with very few children present when my wife and I stayed in February. We were there for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is lovely overlooking the beach, has a nice pool with plenty of loungers and shade. The mattresses on the sun beds need replacing with thicker padding however...

This is a great property, with great service, great location, and great value. My wife and I stayed at this location for 8 days in mid February, 2017. We have been going to Zihuatanejo for many many years, and found this property by accident. This will be our "go to" location from now on. Madera Beach is a great location,...

We loved this hotel. We have been to Zihua a number of times but always at places on La Ropa Beach. This is such a special place that I know we will stay again. The pool area is very nice with an upper deck area away from the pool for shade, views, reading etc. The lobby/entrance is beautiful and a...

I won't repeat what others said about the number of stairs but it does require a moderate level of fitness but hey you can't lie around on the beach loungers all day! We found the hotel staff particularly helpful and pleasant from the check-in to the check-out. Whatever small issue that we had were corrected with a smile thrown in....

I discovered this outstandingly beautiful property 10 years ago and returned for a special birthday in January of 2017. I found that stupendous service, gorgeous grounds and wonderful relaxing atmosphere had not changed one bit. It will be a winter vacation destination for me each year from now on and I was truly disappointed that I hadn't booked a longer...

“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.”
