We stayed at Brisas del Mar for 4 nights in June for my sister's wedding. It couldn't have been more perfect! Check in/out was very easy. Our room was very spacious and clean. Bernadino was our most favorite server. We loved him!! He kept a drink in our hand at all times and had the best smile ever! We had...

We just loved our stay in Las brisas del Mar! Originally we were booked in for 4 nights, but extended our stay to 6 and were very sorry when we had to leave! It is our favourite hotel ever, it even beats any 5 star hotel I've stayed in hands down. The hotel is on a slope towards playa Madera...

Oh, what a great place. Situated right on the beach (playa madera) this place has a great location, just steps from downtown, has a high quality restaurant, free Internet access, fairly decent massage, very knowledgable front desk (she helped us book a reservation at "espuma" on valentine's day, wow) and Carola, a friendly parrot that greets you with a loud...

When you first pull up to the hotel, don't be discouraged! It's not super impressive until you walk through the door and see the view of the ocean - incredible. We spent 4 nights there and loved every minute of it - right on the beach, great view of the ocean from the room, great food (especially the shrimp omelet),...

My wife and I went to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We had a great time, beautiful view, close to town and shopping. Colorful room, good and quiet A/C. Private patio w/ Jacuzzi. Diana and the front desk were terrific. Restaurant is top rate but a little pricey for the area. But the service, quality, and presentation was excellent. In...

We stayed at Brisas del Mar a few weeks ago, May 15-21, and had an amazing vacation! The resort is a little rustic, but charming - very nice overall. We loved all the sculptures and gardens surrounding/throughout the hotel - it was beautiful. There are a lot of stairs and they are steep, but if you're somewhat active, you'll be...

We stayed at this hotel for 10 days. This hotel is a little rustic. We were greeted well enough at the front desk. The room was large enough. The bed was comfortable. We were disappointed in the jacuzzi. It was just a large white bathtub. The TV was small. The room had a musty smell to it. The restaurant was...

This was a fabulous spot in Zihua bay on Playa Madera. Stayed May 8-15 in a junior suite. Room was simple and clean. No need for a jacuzzi room. Great views of the bay from the balcony and a 10 minute walk to downtown. Beach was never crowded. Plenty of lounge chairs available steps from the water. Great water slide....
