The property was great, we loved the location on the beach and the accessibilty to resturants

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time doing a vacation rental and we had a great experience and would do it again. Our only problem was that we had a maid that we could not communicate with, we had questions about the operation of fans and lights. The staff in the administration office was able to talk to the maid called the owner and help us out. Otherwise everything worked out as we hoped.

Beautiful Amara

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation got off to a very rocky start, to say the least. We were travelling as a group of 6 and our flights were delayed, and delayed, and delayed. We were supposed to arrive at the Amara on Feb. 6th but due to snow and such, we arrived two days later...I contacted Lourdes, the owner and explained what was happening. Lourdes graciously allowed us to extend our vacation at her condo at no extra charge! Once we got through the check in process ( took a little longer than I was hoping) quickly went to the condo. As soon as we swung open the door we were all thrilled by the absolutely exquisite view! The entire condo was better than we imagined. 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms was perfect for the 6 of us. Guille, our helper/cleaning lady did an amazing job every day keeping the condo the immaculate place it was. She also cooked us delicious dinner of prawns and chicken one night for a cost of $25.00 US. Mornings were spent having coffee staring at the beautiful beach and evenings spend gazing at the most gorgeous sunsets ever. I think I took a million pictures! This condo has everything one would need and more. The pools are perfect, most of the time we were the only ones there! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation to the beautiful Amara, in the best vacation destination in Mexico - Ixtapa! Thank you Lourdes, for making our vacation the best - especially after we were 2 days late......

Best Location in Ixtapa

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable view from the living room and deck. Very secure/safe with 24hr security. Very clean condo, grounds and professionally run. The pools were not crowded like the surrounding properties we could see. Very relaxing. Everyone at Amara was helpful - security, administration and the palapa crew. Lourdes was quick to respond to any questions before and during our trip. Highly recommended if going to Ixtapa.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent property. It is very secure and has all the amenities one could ask for. The beds were comfortable, and the place is very clean and nicely appointed. The main shopping and dining area of Ixtapa is right across the street and the locals are freindly and welcoming. We hope to be back again!

Very gracious hostess

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apt after Christmas through New Years. We were graced with Lourdes' kind and gentile guidance about Mexican customs and, in particular, the Luminaries lit on New Years Eve. (Lourdes was staying in a nearby unit.)

The condo, pool, beach and town provided the diversity our multi-generational group needed.

I strongly recommend this home and hostess.
