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.

Excelente experiencia

  • 5 of 5

Pase unas vacaciones excelentes en compañía de mi abuela, mi mama y mi tío, lo que hizo mas especial esta semana sin lugar a dudas fue AMARA, y sobretodo este PH que se distingue de todos los demás departamentos por la vista increíble que tiene al mar, y sin dejar atrás que esta adecuadamente bien equipado, para cualquiera que sean tus necesidades. La terraza fue mi lugar favorito, con vista a la playa, cuenta con un jacuzzi en donde puedes ver relajadamente la puesta del sol, es una experiencia sin igual. Petra una persona muy amable, excelente trabajadora, cocina delicioso, muy atenta. Definitivamente superó mis expectativas, ampliamente lo recomiendo, vale la pena.

  • 5 of 5

As a short getaway from business life for a group of 9 we had choosen this PH for a weekend which in reality exceeded our expectations.

The PH is great equipped with all the things you need, perfect located with a breathtaking view from the Top. The service and here especially the cooking skills of our housekeeper (!) was awesome. They prepared our caught sailfish in different ways and it was excellent.

I would recommend this location to anyone.
