About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The view from the 15th and 16th floor of this Penthouse is breathtaking! It is truly paradise here. Picture yourself relaxing on a private terrace at the top with 180 degree view of the ocean. Or, perhaps, admiring a spectacular sunset while in the private jacuzzi on the upstairs terrace. Words just can't describe the natural beauty of the little piece of heaven known as the Mexican Riviera. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy a carefree vacation.

The penthouse offers 4200 sq. ft. between 15th and 16th floors. You enter into a large living room and dining room with floor to ceiling glass sliders that open up from either side allowing you to bring the outdoors in. There are two Master Bedrooms each facing the ocean where you can step out onto the terrace to welcome another day in paradise. The other two bedrooms face the golf course and have a lush tropical view where you can also see the heart of Ixtapa across the street. The towers were designed where there are only 2 residences per floor so you will have privacy and be able to have the best of both worlds, oceanview and tropical beauty.

The location is right in the heart of Ixtapa. You can walk to restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques, shops, grocery stores, and drug stores. Amara Ixtapa is a new development located right on the main Ixtapa Beach, Playa El Palmar, where you will have all the amenities of a luxury resort, including daily maid service.

Guests can take the elevator down to beautifully landscaped grounds that includes 3 pools, one huge infinity pool for families that feels like it goes right into the ocean, another infinity pool for adults only, and a small wading pool for children. Guests can enjoy very reasonably priced drinks and snacks made by Amara's own bartenders. There is a gate that leads right to the sand where guests can enjoy private palapa's with lounge chairs.

Once you have discovered the beauty of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you will fall in love with this amazing place and return time and time again. Our hope is that you enjoy every minute of your stay at our place in Amara Ixtapa.

Happy Travels!

About The Owner

We fell in love with Ixtapa about 11 years ago. After vacationing there time and time again, we decided to buy our own little piece of paradise, Casa S.. We are the original owners of our home at Amara and can't be happier with our decision. One day our dream would be to spend four or five months a year there, but since we have younger children, that will have to wait a bit.

The warmth of the people in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo is unlike any we have experienced in our travels. We have thoughtfully furnished our home with many amenities that we know you will enjoy. We take pride in providing prompt responses to our potential guests either via email or phone.

We would love to open up our home to you and your family and friends to enjoy a wonderful vacation in sunny Ixtapa. Please come visit. We think you will be happy you did!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Breathtaking Views in an Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing on the many decks and enjoying the views was incredible. We had a sea urchin incident and Claudia had a doctor come to the condo to save the day. Thank you! Highly recommended.

Never to be forgotten!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Amara beach front penthouse at the end on January/early February. This family vacation was one of the best we have ever taken. The penthouse was impecable. It was very clean, spacious and had everything we could ever need. We can tell the owners take great pride in their place and we are so thankful for their hospitality. The penthouse its self is remarkable. The furnishing are in great condition and the beds are very comfortable. We very much appreciated the daily maid service. She was wonderful to us. We felt very spoiled. The grounds of Amara are amazing. The pools, beach front, bar, etc. are wonderful. The pictures just dont do it justice! The location is perfect and has everything you would need within walking distance. We would eat in for breakfast and lunch everyday and have dinner out on the town. The kitchen in the penthouse had everything we needed for cooking, all we had to do was make a quick trip to the grocery store! We had 2 kids ages 6 and 11 and adults and grandparents on this vacation and I can honestly say this was the perfect place to stay. We will come back to Ixtapa again next year and will hope to stay at this Amara penthouse again. Ixtapa is the perfect place for vacationing. We were so pleased with our stay. Do not delay, book this place! You will not be disappointed!!!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jill! Thank you so much for your review. We always love to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay at our favorite beach. Casa Spadaro is right in the heart of this beautiful and pristine beach and when we hear that guests had a memorable time, it makes us smile. We love those incredible Ixtapa sunsets and we usually enjoy one of those massages right before which makes the experience even more relaxing and peaceful. It is our sincere hope that you will return to our beloved Casa Spadaro once again.

Paradise by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary with our family. We wanted to stay someplace special to commemorate the event and we got it with this condo! The condo sits on the top floor of a private, gated complex. The bedrooms were spacious and it was nice having 5 bathrooms. The condo was clean and tidy. The daily maid service was a plus. On the second level of the condo was a private patio complete with a cooling jetted tub and lawn chairs. The most amazing part of this condo is the view! We watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean every night from the patio. It was incredible! We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wants a private, safe get-away. Restaurants, shops, grocery store and banks are a short walk away. We hired a cook one night to make us an authentic mexican meal in the condo. Very reasonable. We also went bike riding, parasailing, swimming with dolphins, shopping, snorkeling at Isle Ixtapa and to Zihuatanejo. The weather was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review, Debbie! We are so happy that you chose Casa Spadaro for your parents' 50th anniversary celebration. I really enjoyed the picture of your family that you forwarded to me. It's nice to put faces to our guests and I loved the big smiles and the matching t-shirts. We have many favorite spots at the condo but the top terrace is truly unique. Glad you were able to enjoy it during your stay. We would love to have you return one day. Again, thanks for choosing Casa Spadaro for your special trip. :)

Treat Yourself

  • 5 of 5

What can we say. let's start with WOW! This condo knocks your socks off from the moment you enter. It is incredibly well appointed and feels like home moments after your arrival. My husband and I stayed at the condo this past February and enjoyed this gem of of a location. The top floor terrace with panoramic views of the ocean were breath taking. Some days it was actually tough to decide whether to leave as it offered everything you could possible desire. Comfortable lounge chairs, a small plunge pool to cool off and a grill should you wish to cook a meal. You will not be disappointed if you book this impressive and beautiful accommodation. The owners are incredibly easy to work with and Claudia the property manager is helpful and accessible with anything you may require. We have travelled throughout Mexico and the Caribbean and this condo will always stand out as the most luxurious and breathtaking. Thanks for sharing Barbara and Giorgio!

Saved our vacation

  • 5 of 5

So my wife and I had booked a room down the beach through a time share trade. Upon arrival we knew we would love the Ixtapa area more then PV or Mazatlan, where we had stayed before, but the unit we were staying in was lacking considerably. After a couple of days we looked at our options, and amazingly there was this place available Wednesday afternoon to Saturday. We contacted one of the owners (Barbara), traded some texts, emails, and paypal information, went to ZN Commercial Mexicana for groceries, and within three hours our vacation went from "ho-hum" to "holy cow!" We knew we were in for a treat when, as we arrived and one of the owner/tenants asked where we were staying. We told him, and he said "just the two of you? You are going to be living large the next few days!"


Location - right in the center spot of the 2-mile long beach. Shops and restaurants directly across the street.

Bar and Pool - we wouldn't know. They look nice, but why leave the penthouse? My wife didn't leave the front door from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. I never saw more than six people in the three pools combined, as I looked down from the balcony.

What's awesome:

*Even without the private upstairs enormous rooftop balcony, the place would be terrific. But the rooftop is the star of the show. Barbeque steaks and dine or soak in the cold spa while taking in the views to the west and the east. Part of the balcony is an outdoor, covered living room. Plenty of shade to stay comfortable with a rooftop breeze, but plenty of room in the sun to soak up the rays.

*If you like to cook, the unit is stocked with everything you might need - just bring groceries. Lots of people must decide to stay in and cook, because there was a great stock of little things you don't think about at the store - spices, condiments, etc. (Although perhaps we were overly impressed by this because we had to ask for forks and washrags at the previous place.)

*Claudia and Mirabelle.

We have just returned home and have already contacted the owners for next year's week-ling visit.

Owner's Response: Ahhh, we absolutely love to hear how we were a part of a good vacation. Stars were aligned and it all worked out so fast and efficiently. Thank you for trusting us to be honest and fair. Our goal is make it easy so that the vacation can begin without hassles. I giggle about your wife not leaving our place. There are several areas to just unwind and relax up there. Truly happy that you found us. The biggest complement is when guests want to return and by you already booking next year at Casa Spadaro, speaks volumes. We appreciate your kind words, Allan, and look forward to having you back!
