Stayed here as a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children ages 3 to 8) in March 2017. We had a two bedroom apartment and it was perfect; lots of space, 3 bathrooms (1), large veranda with loungers and dining table, outdoor plunge pool and sweeping views. The room was a bit dated but in no way unpleasant. The kitchenette...

We stayed here for two weeks. The first week we had a one bedroom unit and the second week in a two bedroom unit with three bathrooms. The first unit was musty smelling and there was visible signs of past water damage in the unit. Sprayed with Lysol and opening the room up helped a little. Our second room smelled...

We have stayed at the resort twice before and found the same attentive and friendly staff as always. The proximity to the beach (right on Playa la Ropa), the food and unbelievable views make this a perfect setting for either couples or families. There are a number of stairs and, if mobility is a large issue, you may want to...

I have stayed here 3 times and each time has been magical. The staff is amazing, the rooms are wonderful and I saw the most incredible sunset I have ever seen - it still brings me to tears when I think about it. I am going again in June and can't wait to see my friends at Embarc that are...

Thanks so much for making this an enjoyable stay! I always enjoy reading the reviews of the hotels especially the bad ones :), people have the weirdest ideas about 'acceptable'. This place is FANTASTIC, there are stairs, lots of them. You will find that this is the case with most hotels in Zihuatanejo. We have been coming as a family...

Beautiful resort right on La Ropa beach. Very accommodating staff. We visited in Jan/17. No problem getting chairs on the beach or at the pool. Beware - no elevators! If you have a room a the top it is 300 steps to the beach, and almost the same to the pool. It is a time share so hard to get...

We have stayed at many resorts in different areas of Mexico, but this was my favourite. The vacation homes are beautiful and well maintained. Not having to go out for every meal allowed for a much more relaxing week. I could have spent all week on our terrace looking out over the bay. The staff are totally on the ball....

Once again the old Club Intrawest now Embarc did not disappoint. The change in the management of the group has not had a negative impact on the service or resort itself. The manager has not changed (thank goodness) and her staff have had little turnover. The biggest change with the staff that I noticed is their english, its even better....
