Amara Beachfront Penthouse with immense rooftop private terrace

Bedrooms 5
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

The view from the 15th and 16th floor of this Penthouse is breathtaking! It is truly paradise here. Picture yourself relaxing on a private terrace at the top with 180 degree view of the ocean. Or, perhaps, admiring a spectacular sunset while in the private jacuzzi on the upstairs terrace. Words just can't describe the natural beauty of the little piece of heaven known as the Mexican Riviera. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy a carefree vacation.

The penthouse offers 4200 sq. ft. between 15th and 16th floors. You enter into a large living room and dining room with floor to ceiling glass sliders that open up from either side allowing you to bring the outdoors in. There are two Master Bedrooms each facing the ocean where you can step out onto the terrace to welcome another day in paradise. There are two more bedrooms facing the golf course and have a lush tropical view where you can also see the heart of Ixtapa across the street. The newest bedroom is on our top terrace. The towers were designed where there are only 2 residences per floor so you will have privacy and be able to have the best of both worlds, oceanview and tropical beauty.

The location is right in the heart of Ixtapa. You can walk to restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques, shops, grocery stores, and drug stores. Amara Ixtapa is a new development located right on the main Ixtapa Beach, Playa El Palmar, where you will have all the amenities of a luxury resort, including daily maid service.

Guests can take the elevator down to beautifully landscaped grounds that includes 3 pools, one huge infinity pool for families that feels like it goes right into the ocean, another infinity pool for adults only, and a small wading pool for children. Guests can enjoy very reasonably priced drinks and snacks made by Amara's own bartenders. There is a gate that leads right to the sand where guests can enjoy private palapa's with lounge chairs.

Once you have discovered the beauty of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you will fall in love with this amazing place and return time and time again. Our hope is that you enjoy every minute of your stay in Casa Spadaro at Amara.

Happy Travels!

About Giorgio and Barbara Spadaro

We fell in love with Ixtapa about 11 years ago. After vacationing there time and time again, we decided to buy our own little piece of paradise, Casa S.. We are the original owners of our home at Amara and can't be happier with our decision. One day our dream would be to spend four or five months a year there, but since we have younger children, that will have to wait a bit.

The warmth of the people in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo is unlike any we have experienced in our travels. We have thoughtfully furnished our home with many amenities that we know you will enjoy. We take pride in providing prompt responses to our potential guests either via email or phone.

We would love to open up our home to you and your family and friends to enjoy a wonderful vacation in sunny Ixtapa. Please come visit. We think you will be happy you did!

We walked into the suite just as the sun was setting- the view was spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Ixtapa on a Sunday evening, our first time to this Mexican city. The property manager was away on vacation, so there was a bit of confusion, but it was all soon resolved. The owners of this beautiful property provide you with enough information, that even without the property manger, we were able to book all of our excursions easily. We hired a cook for 4 of our dinners - she was fantastic! The place is well located on an amazing beach, with fabulous resort pools. One of the most relaxing family vacations we have had- highly recommend this place and Ixtapa in general! Definitely would love to come back❤️

Owner's Response: Hi Shelley, yes, you not only got that breathtaking view but you caught it at sunset for the first time! Our favorite treat to enjoy from our home. We are so glad that you had a relaxing vacation. Sorry about the confusion upon your arrival. Glad it got sorted out quickly. For a future visit, I am always available during your stay to help out via text or email. Ixtapa is truly a gem and we are happy when a new family/group visits for the first time and has the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the beach and warmth of the people. We truly hope you will visit again in the near future.

We had another great week at Casa Spadero. We were slightly concerned about the travel advisory, but Barbara assured us that nothing had changed in Ixtapa and she was right. The scenery was as beautiful as always and we felt safe and pampered at all times. The condo is beautiful. Lilliana cooked two fabulous meals for us and Mario carted us wherever we wanted to go. We were able to golf on two occasions and our caddy was helpful and funny. Go early. It gets hot by noon. The condo is supplied with everything you will need and Barbara responds quickly to any questions you might have. We really appreciate the suggestions for restaurants and things to do left in the condo.

Thank-you, Barbara and Georgio for sharing your stunning condo with us. Until next year....

Owner's Response: We are truly happy that you felt safe the whole time you were in Ixtapa. After the travel advisory, a girlfriend and I flew in for a few days and never felt unsafe at any time. All is good as it's always been! It's hard to beat the beauty of the beach and the view from our condo. Sounds like you had a ton of fun. Thank you so much for visiting again and we look forward to you spending another wonderful vacation at Casa Spadaro. Until next year...

Penthouse is amazing! Ixtapa is an undiscovered treasure!

  • 5 of 5

The Amara is strategically located in Ixtapa to take advantage of the best part of Ixtapa beach coupled with proximity to local stores, restaurants and the small commercial hub of Ixtapa. The Spadaro House is a spectacular penthouse suite located at the center of this condominum with a view that is like no other!

5 Rooms and 5 Bathrooms - what is not to like about that when travelling with friends and family! We loved it! We used the kitchen for light food and drink but it could handle much more cooking than we put it through. There are so many good restaurants across the street and even more in Zijuatanejo so it is hard to cook on a trip like this. The upper deck is awesome to sit in the evening and enjoy a drink while taking in the great weather and reflecting on the day.

We stayed 10 days and enjoyed all aspects of this Amara complex from the great pools, beach access, views and proximity to Zijua and other small towns. The staff is GREAT! There is a very wonderful blessing named Maribelle who comes and cleans each day and is a wonderful resource of information. Guards, bartenders and help at the Amara are very gracious and helpful, you will not receive this kind of hospitality everywhere.

One person that we really enjoyed is Erik one of the guards at the Amara who taught us a bunch about sea turtles. We would get up early every morning and run down to the beach to see if there were any coming out of the sand. We saw lots of nests "erupt" with baby turtles! We were amazed at strong population of turtles on this beach! Erik let us help release some of the babies one day that had come out of the nest during the day. He waits till it is almost dark and then releases them down the beach.

Simply glorious! Weather is close to paradise! We will be back!

Thanks Giorgio and Barbara!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, We are so glad to hear about your fun filled stay at Casa Spadaro. You are so right about the kitchen being all ready for some serious cooking but sometimes on vacation you just want to explore new restaurants or visit some favorites. Glad you enjoyed our newest bedroom addition on the terrace floor. Have to totally agree that Maribel, Claudia and the staff at Amara truly go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. Is it not just amazing to experience the baby turtles and releasing them at sunset? How wonderful that you and your family were able to enjoy that memorable experience. Thanks for a great review and we very much look forward to having you stay at our place in the near future!

Great location, great view and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 7 days at the Amara Penthouse. We loved sitting on the balcony and up on the top level. Lots of room and all needed amenities. This is all within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The owners were very prompt when we had a question and easy to deal with.

Best Place to stay in Mexico. Period!

  • 5 of 5

By far the best place I have ever stayed in Mexico. This includes Cabo, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Acapulco. I have been to all those places and Ixtapa/Zihua blows them away. Casa Spadaro has views that can't be beat. The place is a clean and comfortable condo that will exceed your expectations. The very attentive staff at Amara Condo's are the very best. The local food choices are fantastic especially the restaurants in Zihua. Top of the line chefs at many of those places and plenty of local inexpensive, yet delicious choices all within walking distance of the condo. You won't go wrong booking a trip to stay at this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. We are always thrilled to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay at Casa Spadaro. We are always striving to improve it. We just completed the addition of the fifth room upstairs on the terrace. Hope your group enjoyed it. We couldn't agree more with preferring Ixtapa over the other resort cities in Mexico. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are so quaint and we love the local feeling and people. Yes, so many five star restaurants to experience that it's difficult to choose. Then there's the tiny little local gems that taste like five star but we are sitting at plastic tables having the freshest fish imaginable! Thanks and until next time!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

The Amara penthouse was absolutely wonderful! And yes, we did fall in love with Zihua. The location is beautiful and the views from the upper deck were awesome. Service was great. Claudia set us up right and all the staff were very helpful. The amenities were outstanding. The penthouse was stocked well with everything you need. We were at the pool multiple days and used the gym as well. Thanks much for a great place to stay.
