Best Pick! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this unit!!! This was an impromptu moms weekend get-away, and it was perfect. (4 br, 4 bath - each master suite looks out to the ocean, the other two rooms each have twin+full beds) Kitchen is fully loaded w/ 2 eating bars and the huge dining room table is awesome. Beautiful deck w/ table and lots of chairs. Plus great wi-fi in the condo which was important bc we had 2 doctors with us who needed to work. But overall the hospitality is what made our stay so memorable! The owners of this unit happened to be in Ixtapa and were SO gracious and helpful. Upon booking they'll send you a 4-page letter with everything from good cab drivers, what to expect at the airport, recommendations for restaurants and things to do -- it was so helpful! They've been coming to Ixtapa for 20yrs so know everything and everyone! They also have an in-town contact who meets you at the unit to explain how things work and is available as needed w questions/needs. Security gate at the front is super solid (nobody is getting in the front without a wristband) and security on the beach made us really comfortable. All food/drinks you have at the pool is charged to the room --they have quick food available by the pool (eggs, hot dogs, guacamole, etc). The ride from the airport is only 20-min. It's a small airport, so we didn't even wait in any lines on the way home. Overall we had a great trip and would love to return soon! Ixtapa is gorgeous, perfect weather and a great time..this condo is a winner. PS -- these owners have 2 condos, so if you're looking for a larger group let them know. :) Enjoy! ..... (oh, and get $20 massages just down the beach at hut #4, amazing)

Outstanding unit

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the units where the kitchen/living area has been remodeled to open up the kitchen to the living area. What an improvement! This was our third stay at Amara, and I highly recommend it. Owners of this unit went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and bar area well supplied. View from the balcony is fantastic. The pools and grounds are gorgeous, and not packed with people. Pools especially suited for kids and adults alike. Would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing 11 day vacation at this beautiful property. As beautiful as the pictures are, they don't do the condo or the view justice! It is even more stunning in real life. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need, and the beds are the most comfortable beds that we have experienced in Mexico. Both the owners and the property manager were so accommodating and helpful with any questions we had. We were there over Christmas and New Years and never found it to be too noisy or busy at the pools. My kids absolutely loved the baby pool, and the gradual entry on the main pool was a hit with them too. We went out for dinner many nights and it was great having so many restaurants right across the street. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great getaway. Hope to be back one day!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in February and could not have asked for a more beautiful and convenient location. The condo is just as the pictures show. Lots of room for everyone with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. TV's had limited English stations but that is the same as other condos that we have rented in Mexico. Living room TV has a DVD player and Netflix which was great for the occasional movie. One of the best equipped kitchens that we have ever had. Lots of plates and cutlery, pots, pans and storage containers. Separate small fridge was great for the beer. Separate "bar" area had lots of glasses for any type of drink. Drinking water is delivered by administration for 20 pesos. Such a nice service instead of having to buy water elsewhere. Beds were comfortable, air conditioner and ceiling fans worked perfectly. Only used the AC occasionally at night due to the nice breeze from the open patio doors. What a view from the balcony. Amazing. Lots of towels of every size. Lots of pool towels. Landscaping and pool area are so beautiful and extremely well kept. We didn't use the adult pool but the main pool was the perfect temperature. Cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough that you could just walk in and never feel cold. Pool was not too busy, often there were less than 10 people in the pool at a time. Shaded area for the lounge chairs under a thatched roof is much better than using umbrellas. Never had a problem finding a lounge chair to use. Internet worked perfectly at the pool and the separate internet in the condo was great. Drinks at the palapa were very reasonable and the servers were very nice. They even remembered our room number after the second day. Oxxo and convenience stores across the street. Lots of restaurants with great food and very reasonable prices also across the street. Building, condo, pool area and even a couple palapas on the beach are accessible for wheelchairs. Property manager is wonderful. Helpful with everything from groceries to arranging transportation back to the airport. The owner is one of the best that we have ever rented from and we have rented through VRBO over 20 times. Always answered my emails and all my questions. Very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this condo and this owner. We could not have asked for better. We have booked again for next year.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The condo was accurately described, but it really exceeded my expectations once I saw it. It had all the necessary appliances and kitchen utensils, which is nice you are looking to prepare or eat meals in the condo. The location was great, just was I was looking for. Great view, easy access to beach, bar, pool, and transportation. The condo staff was very friendly. I was there on a family vacation.

I was initially worried about the monetary transaction because the owner does not use VRBO's payment service, but the owner was very responsive to my concerns and the transaction ended up going smoothly.
