Our four bedroom condo has a beautiful & elegant style, yet provides a casual and relaxing space that will meet your highest expectations of a great stay. It can accommodate 2 to 12 persons. Located located in the most exclusive beach complex on the Mexican Pacific coast. Nothing compares to it.
The rooms are all spacious and bright, decorated with an elegant coast style. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 have both one king size bed, a twin bed/sofa, Sky TV and private bath. Both have a gorgeous terrace with resting chairs and hammocks facing the ocean. Bedroom 3 has three twin beds, an additional pull-out twin bed and private bath. Bedroom 4 has also three twin beds, one of which is a bunk bed, and a bath. All bedrooms have A/C, ceiling fans and wifi.
My favorite place is the top floor where there is a huge open space with the living room, dining area, small pool, terrace, sofas, outdoor table and an incredible view. Here you will enjoy life! It also features A/C in case you want a cool environment that can be closed with glass sliding doors (without sacrificing the great view). You have wifi everywhere. In the living room area there is a 50' TV with high definition Sky TV.
Our cleaning lady Ari is also a great cook! She comes everyday (except Sundays) during your stay to prepare all your meals, serve you drinks, clean, and keep everything running smoothly (9am-5pm). Her assistance is included in your fee. For more than 6 guests, she will bring another person to help her with all the daily chores (addt’l fee will apply).
Located in the gated community Punta Ixtapa, in the Veleros section, you will have free use of the luxury resort's 2 clubs and 4 private beaches:
- 'El Morro' beach club with 2 large infinity pools, a great restaurant, and a private beach with kayaks and lifeguards. It takes 3 minutes to walk from our condo to El Morro.
- 'Las Cuatas' with 2 private beaches and an beautiful gym overlooking the ocean.
- The fourth beach is called Playa Quieta and it also has a private club with a pool and a restaurant.This beach is great for jogging, walking or water skiing.
The clubs have an incredibly high level of service: they provide you towels, beach umbrellas, and bar and food service (drinks just keep coming!). The restaurants have a top notch Mexican chef who creates fresh and delicious dishes, at incredible low prices (restaurants are non-profit services).
Our condo has 2 new hybrid bikes that you can freely use to bike around Ixtapa. By the way, Ixtapa is famous for its 'ciclopista', it is a +20km (12 miles) paved path that goes along all Ixtapa an into Playa Linda, where people bike, jog, walk and skate. There are lots of free additional things to do on premises to have everyone happy: tennis, paddle-tennis, bicycles, kayak and workout gym by the beach. There are two golf courses in Ixtapa which are located at a 10 min drive. You can freely use our tennis racquets (2), sets of golf clubs (2), surf board, beach balls, etc. Also, you can get surf lessons right at the El Morro beach (40 usd/hr), get a professional massage at the condo (45 usd/hr), and many other activities (golf, fishing, scuba diving, sailing…) which are listed on a service directory that we provide you.
If you want you can use our car, a GM Suburban, to move around the Ixtapa area, go to other beaches, or to have dinner in Zihuatanejo town (a $20 daily fee for your stay will apply). Also, we can arrange to have a driver from the condo staff to take our GM Suburban and pick you up at the airport. There is no cost. The airport is ~15 mins away from our condo.,
If you provide a grocery shopping list, the condo management staff will buy it and have it ready for your arrival.
Note: our property is in a private area of Ixtapa, not in the (too) crowded area where most of the huge buildings with apartments for rent are located (like Bay View Grand -BVG-, Tesoro, Palmetto, etc.)
I am a mexican IT businessman. I run a company with offices throughout Latin America and my girlfriend Karin is in real state. We really love to travel and do it as much as we can. Specially we enjoy getting to know a city on a bicycle; perfect speed and freedom! We also like doing sport activities like running, windsurf, tenis, squash (ups that sounds old), water and snow ski, ... and even ping pong!
Rene Bravo purchased this condo in 2013
We have been vacationing in Ixtapa for a long time. It is a place that has everything for everybody, families with kids, couples looking for romantic time, people who like to bike, scuba-dive, run, play golf, etc. However, the best time was when we rented a place in Punta Ixtapa, we had all that plus the benefit of exclusivity, luxury and privacy. Since then we were chasing something to buy. When Karin and I saw this condo, we new we had to buy it. The views and living spaces are amazing. It is lovely, we enjoy it so much. As we are still working, we are not able to be there as much as we would like, that is why we rent it. But once we are done with everyday jobs (couple of years away :), we will spend part of the year at our condo.
Owners and staff were a pleasure to deal with. The condo was beautiful. The beach and the services were great. Having local cuisine prepared for us daily in the condo was a wonderful addition to the overall experience. Took advantage of the bicycles made available to us to ride around on the bicycle path just outside the front gate. Access to the car to go to town and do some sightseeing was a big plus. Everything was taken care for us and all we had to do was concentrate on our vacation. We highly recommend this condo for a unique vacation experience.
Clean, well maintained, nice view, walking distance from the beach, tennis and padel courts, running path, well equiped kitchen...
The cook and the house keeper are great too.
Would rent again in the future without a doubt.
Fuimos allí con una pareja de amigos y sus 4 hijos y hemos estado disfrutando del Club de Playa "El Morro" todos los días.
Casi siempre hemos estado solos allí para un total relax.
Es un lugar fantástico para desconectar, muy bien cuidado, con un servicio impecable y un panorama increíble.
This was my fifth stay in Ixtapa in the last 12 months. This condo was by far the finest home I've seen. The home is reverse floor plan, with kitchen and 2nd bedroom on the top floor. The kitchen, dining and living room are above as well. There are a few staircases involved in accessing the unit and traversing the property.
The maid (and cook), Ari, was outstanding. She delighted us with different dishes every day. We simply drew up a schedule of desired meals upon arrival. When we changed our mind about the meal schedule, it was always no problem. She is constantly smiling and eager to help.
Taxi service and onsite service was 10 out of 10. The pool service could be more attentive. The beach is lovely, and lifeguards were well qualified and watched our children constantly. The prices at the pool area were extremely reasonable.
This owner was very concerned with our happiness, and checked in with me on two separate occasions. There were no defects in the condo - everything functions perfectly. Some of the architectural detailing and fixtures were very elegant. Air conditioning blows ice cold, and the ceiling fans were helpful in making everyone comfortable as soon as we returned.
I would definitely return! All of our group complimented the choice of accommodations. Everyone enjoyed privacy, service, and luxury.
..like, everything mediocre, But not here!
Our vacation started with a friendly welcome at the airport a comfortable ride thru a nice highway, passing manicured lawns on the side. The staff at the Condo was waiting for us with Luggage carts and a warm welcome!
Once entering the condo, we knew right away this place will be different. Coming up the stairs we were blown away by the spaciousness and incredible view. The wonderful peace & quietness induced immediately vacation mood. We felt at home in a heartbeat!
The next day we met the two ladies which would be taking care of us during our stay, great first impression. Then the vacation was over like lightning and we had to depart, how sad, but we will rebook for next year…..not so fast, lets first praise!
Ari and Carolina were great and they were soon adopted into our family of friends (we were 4 couples) They were very accommodating outside the planned menu and were great culinarians. Their English was enough to communicate and if not Lesbia was a phone call away.
Deliveries came and garbage was retrieved unobtrusively by Lorenzo with a big smile. The beach club “El Morro” a wonderful private retreat had very few people there. When we came back, beds were made and all was cleaned up and straightened out.
Most of the time it was just us there and at the beginning the chaise service was attentive and later it became la bit lax and the lack of a supervisor was evident. Toilet paper was missing one day and there should be a pile of towels for self-service at hand. Lights in the bathroom stalls are dingy.
The Lifeguard on the beach instilled safety as he was very attentive and friendly. We tried to contact a sales person to inquire about the purchase of a unit, we left messages and placed a paper under the sales office door but no one contacted us.
The Suburban is in good working order and we used it on 8 of the 10 days for excursions and for shopping as well as for dinner. Whenever we went somewhere, we gladly came back to our oasis.
The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and the rental process and billing was easy and efficient. The deposit was refunded promptly 3 days after we returned home.
Love to have had a map of the Punta Ixtapa grounds or perhaps signage as we got lost several times.
All in all, an excellent stay, we will be back.
Our first view inside the condo actually took my breath away! Everything was much better than expected. The top floor is enormous and completely open to the jungle paradise of Punta Ixtapa. You can only see a bit of the ocean to the north, but you can hear the waves crashing into shore day and night. We spent most of our time in the condo on the patio and/or in the infinity pool. It fit all six of us!
A bathroom for each bedroom was wonderful for our group. The bedrooms are large, well-appointed and so quiet. The guys in our group found the beds too hard, but the girls thought they were comfortable. The air conditioning is excellent.
Ari is lovely and did a wonderful job of keeping the condo clean. She cooked and served us breakfast and lunch every day! Everything she made us was delicious - especially her guacamole, red snapper, dorado (mahi mahi), and chicken enchiladas.
We enjoyed the use of the Suburban and used it daily to travel to Ixtapa, Zihua and even Troncones (check this place out!). We did have some difficulty maneuvering the vehicle in and out of the parking spot - be prepared for a 3-, 5-, or even 7-point turn! Gasoline is quite a bit more expensive in Mexico than in Canada (~1.40/L when we visited), but you really need a vehicle if you are staying in Punta Ixtapa.
The Punta Ixtapa community was safe, luxurious, and SO quiet. We didn't explore it as much as we would have liked, visiting Playa Quieta for breakfast one morning and spending most of the rest of our time at Club Morro (watching the sunrise and sunset from either of the infinity pools). We had great drink service here a few times, and certainly paid more than the $1 beers/$2.50 piña coladas in Scott's review. For all but one day, we were the only people there!
We would have loved to ride bikes on the ciclopista, but ran out of time. We did not visit Las Cuatas either. Next time!
If you do not speak Spanish but are considering renting this condo, do it. I was the only one in our party somewhat conversant in Spanish. Everyone was very patient and we were all able to communicate. The condo staff, including Lesbia and Lorenzo, were very helpful. Lesbia's English is excellent and she is only a phone call away. Rene and Karin provided a great deal of helpful information prior to our arrival, and the rental process was smooth and easy. I hope to go back to Ixtapa soon and would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wants to experience the area!
