This was our first trip as a family to Ixtapa. Staying at this penthouse was absolutely fabulous! No one wanted to leave. From the moment we opened the front door and set our eyes on the spectacular view, we were literally mesmerized. Jorge, the property manager had lead us to the penthouse and shared information about the property. He became our instant friend. He beamed with pride as he showed us this unbelievable penthouse. None of us could take our eyes off the beautiful view. The penthouse itself is wonderfully decorated - stylish yet totally comfortable. Each room is cozy and has the air of a resort. The entire penthouse is simply fabulous. The pictures don't really capture its beauty. What's more, is that the staff, Petra and her assistants, are gracious and hospitable. She prepares meals with love and flavor and she keeps the place immaculate! We spent much of our time relaxing by the pool and spending time on the beach. The beach is clean and we felt safe. The staff at the Amara was very well aware of its guests and they, too, always greeted us and took care of us. The Amara is a stone's throw from local shopping, the flea market, and many fabulous restaurants. Our family chose to do a dolphin encounter, which was a brief walk from Amara. This property exceeded our expectations on every level. The kids didn't want to leave! We highly recommend this property for your next visit. We certainly can't wait to go back. Thank you for an AMAZING experience!

WOW!!! The pictures don't do this amazing penthouse justice! Beautifully decorated, amazing views day and night! The living room and the master bedroom have floor to ceiling sliding doors so you never miss seeing or hearing the ocean. Venture up to the rooftop and it just takes it up another level. Comfy, high quality furniture and a jacuzzi to cool off in, especially at night as well as spectacular views of the bay.

We spent most of our time relaxing by the pool and enjoying watching the parasailers and seadoo riders come and go. We took a walk on the beach (very clean), to one of the massage shacks that was recommended by the owner. One of the best hour long massages ever and so inexpensive. We went back again! We did the Ixtapa Island snorkel trip which was great! Not what I was expecting, but definitely worth it!! That's what adventures are all about! The island was covered with coral and the fish were beautiful. We had fresh caught lobster and red snapper!! After the day on the island, we visited the alligator lagoon which also had huge iguanas! Our dining experience: El Faro near the southern part of the bay, took a short taxi ride and sat outdoors with a view of the bay! Gorgeous! The food was incredible! We also went to Bogart's, which is right outside Amara. Probably one of the best meal experiences we've had, as there was a solo musician playing romantic music, and the waiter prepared homemade caesar salad dressing at our table!! Out of this world goodness! And then the open flame caramel sauce crepes!! Oh my goodness!!

The day we arrived, Gabriella called to make sure we had arrived and gave us gave us direction on what to do. Petra arrived at 9:30 the next morning and made us our first breakfast after the date of our arrival. Homemade tomatillo salsa, fruit platter with yogurt, and huevos rancheros. Muy deilicioso!!!! After that, my husband enjoyed his daily breakfast at Deborah's. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend staying!!

When we pulled up to the gate and saw the front of the Amara for the first time, we were even more excited! The grand curved elevation of the building was so well designed. The parking lot made of grass with covered spaces keep our car cool.

But when we walked in the front door into the living room the ocean breeze hit us and the incredible veiw of the ocean, wow, we knew we made the right decision! The living rm floor to ceiling sliders open to the walls on either side creating an almost complete open air room. The glass railings give you an un obstructed veiw of the grass lawn, pools and ocean. The whole layout of the place is perfect.The staff were awsome, they made us feel like royalty!

Zihuatanejo is a very cool laid back town. Most of the streets have wooden awnings over the sidewalks like the old west. Very nice people.

It was just my wife and I, but it is a perfect place for our next family reunion.

We will most certainly be back!

Beautiful penthouse, superbly maintained

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fabulous penthouse. Gabriel, the owner was always responsive and extremely helpful. Petra, the cook and Jorge, the property manager, took such good care of us. It was heaven to wake up to Petra's amazing breakfasts, with fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit, and anything from eggs and bacon to traditional Mexican breakfasts (great chilaquiles!). For lunch, Petra would fix shrimp cerviche, chicken tostadas, pescadillas, guacamole, sides or whatever you ask for. It was wonderful. We did Yoga on the top deck of the penthouse before breakfast and that was the perfect start to our stay. This penthouse is special-it is on the south end of the condo towers so it has a 300 degree view of ocean, beach and mountains-spectacular! The cool tub on the top deck is another great place to relax. The furniture, decorations, linens and kitchen gear are all top notch. You simply won't find a more wonderful place for your beach vacation.

beautiful, great memories to be made with family or friends

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was jaw dropping beautiful. I needed more than a week to enjoy every corner of the living space. The environment was comfortable and cozy, with plenty of space for 9 the 8 adults and one child . Sometimes it was hard finding everyone spread out on the rooftop cold pool, enormous deck, or in large bedrooms. The views and sunsets were stunning. On New Year's Eve the fireworks were at eye level with us on the roof top. Petra, the cleaning woman and cook was fantastic. She spent several hours every day picking up after us, keeping the place spotless. She cooked 3 wonderful dinners for us during our stay making traditional Mexican meals, including preparung fish we caught deep sea fishing. It was great to sit back, watch the sunset, then be served and cleaned up after in the comfort of the beatuful living space. Despite having some communication problems with the condo manager, Gabriella, the owner, was very helpful and consciousness about checking in with us to answer questions, and give suggestions about restaurants, and activities like paddle boarding. If you want to have fantastic memories in a warm, inviting, and safe place, choose this penthouse.

One Week during a 3 1/2 months world around trip

  • 5 of 5

End of June 2015 my girlfriend and me spent a wonderful complete week in this wonderful penthouse. We appreciated very much the privacy of the pool area and of course the appartment itself.

Awesome view and a wonderful dinner made by owner's maid. Wonderful Restaurant El Faro in Ixtapa and La Case que Canta in Zihuatanejo.

We are looking forward staying again in this wonderful appartment in wonderful Ixtapa.
