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...

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...

“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.”
