"Ixtapa and the Amara were the perfect place with our group of 8, ages 7 to 74. Having the 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and the fabulous deck across the 4 rooms in the front of the condo just added to having a great time. The view was extraordinary. The weather, the pool, the beach, the parasailing, massages, swimming with the Dolphins, wonderful restaurants, all were highlights. Claudia was there whenever we needed her and made sure everything was running smoothly. Mario, our taxi driver also added to a wonderful experience. We loved going into Zihautanejo. These 2 weeks were truly magical. We loved our experience in Mexico. We will be returning"

"We had a great stay in the condo. The condo offers great views of the ocean and about 2 miles of beach. The building is in a great location. The facilities in the building are fantastic - a very affordable snack bar with good food options that allow you to stay on the property to enjoy the pool/beach. There is a gym to use for 100 pesos/day. Good communication with property manager who addressed most questions/concerns quickly; we had a couple small issues with kitchen appliances being broken and new ones were purchased and delivered to us within 2 days.
We are trying to plan out our dates for next year and likely going to book again if the unit is available."

"This is a very large, comfortable condo. Two couples would have more than enough room. And the view from the large balcony is the best! We spent much of our time on the balcony reading, watching the waves and just relaxing. Very few condos have their own spa tub but this one did. We made good use of it with cool water! We would definitely come back. The location of the condo is great. There are many restaurants within a few minutes walk. Transportation is a snap. Buses run every few minutes and stop right in front of the complex, Taxis are plentiful and have reasonable rates."

"This place was AMAZING! Like the other reviews stated, the pictures really do not do the view justice. This villa is everything you could ask for. My boyfriend and I stayed for 10 days and we couldn't get enough of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo! We loved the area and the people. It helps A LOT to know Spanish (or somewhat) if you plan on traveling to this area, but you will still be able to manage if you don't know the language. We especially enjoyed taking the bus (which stops right in front of Porto Ixtapa gates) to Isla Ixtapa (Ixtapa Island) where we enjoyed the day at Paraiso Escondido, a local restaurant on the beach. Taking the bus to Zihua was just as easy and if you don't want to deal with the bus, here are a plethora of taxi drivers ready to take you where you want to go! I would recommend not on Dolores' place to any one of my friends, but this area in general. It is a true hidden paradise. Dolores made our stay pleasant and stress free, she was just an email or call away if I ever had any questions!"
