Spacious with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Two families of 4 shared this spacious unit at the Amara. There was plenty of room and having 5 bathrooms was much appreciated! The unit is nicely appointed and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals. Wide views of the beach and sunsets in the evening made it the perfect beach retreat. The service from the staff was great whether ordering drinks from the pool bar, arranging taxis or just asking for recommendations on local things to do. The beach is approximately 3kms/2miles long and is perfect for morning walks and afternoon plunges into the surf - there can be a fairly strong under tow so be careful with small kids or weak swimmers. We have no problem recommending this property to anyone looking for a relaxing beach vacation.

Midwesterners Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandi's condo for 7 days in February. Sandi Kemps was wonderful to work with. She was prompt in responding to emails and made the rental process easy. The condo is located right off the beach and the view was amazing. It is large enough to accommodate a big group. The sunsets off the balcony are beautiful. The Amara complex is well maintained and staff are very friendly. Restaurants are within close walking distance. We would definitely rent from Sandi again.

Family / Cousins Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sandi's condo for 10 days and found the Amara to be everything as described. The view is unobstructed and amazing! The condo itself is well outfitted with amenities and the kitchen is very well stocked. The beds are a tad firm for my liking but that seems to be a Mexico thing. Everything was clean! We were even provided one unexpected complimentary housekeeping service halfway through our stay! The grounds and pool are well cared for and clean as well. Right out front of the condo you can jump onto Ixtapa's cycling and trail system that runs 10 K north of there! For runners, walkers, cycling enthusiasts this is an awesome location!! Restaurants and shops in abundance right across the street, too. We hope to be back! Thank you Sandi for a GREAT stay!

Excelente Depa y Excelente ubicacion

  • 5 of 5

El departamento en Amara es espectacular, tiene todos los servicios y caben 8 personas comodamente. La atencion de los dueños siempre fue de primera y no tuvimos ningun problema ni con el apartado ni con el pago. La señora que nos ayudo a cocinar sabia todas las recetas que uno quiere probar en la playa. El servicio del Bar es fenomenal y los precios muy accesibles. Tiene acceso a la playa y 3 albercas ncluyendo 1 solo para adultos lo cual se agradece en estas epocas de fin de año. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. Muchas gracias !!!

amara condo at Ix apa mx

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous,spacious condo with a killer view of Ixtapas gorgeous beach and islands. The weather is always sunny and 90f. We have been here at least 8 x in different condos but we love Amara the best and this year was no different. The ad was perfectly descriptive of the rental. It was beautiful and in excellent condition. 2 families stayed there, 7 total, and there is plenty of space. The photos dont do it justice folks...Of you've never been to Amara before, when you open the door your jaw will hit the floor. A huge ThankYou to the family that rented to us. We had a blast!

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th trip to Ixtapa and first time renting a condo. Having watched the Amara rise from the ground in 2006, we had often commented about staying at this location someday and 2014 proved to be the year give the 5 additional family members that accompanied us on this trip. Our stay at the Amara was nothing less that spectacular and by far the nicest accommodations to date. Mike and Sandi’s 4th floor condo is very well appointed, comfortable, and tastefully decorated with exceptional views of the complex grounds, pool, beach, and ocean sunsets. Kitchen and washer/dryer also came in very handy for breakfast and lunch and we shopped for most groceries and drink at the Comercial Mexicana in Zihuantanejo. From the moment we arrived at the Amara, the staff was very welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. Our unit manager Claudia also assisted with some minor inconveniences (lights and ceiling fans) and hooked us up with Mario who provided our taxi service throughout our weeks stay. We met some very nice families with children which was most helpful as it provided us some down time to relax while our 9 year old daughter had fun with the other children. Sergio and female bartender (name escapes me) provided us ice cold beers, tasty drinks, and very good snack foods including great hamburgers. The security guards were also fun and friendly and made the stay comfortable, safe, and secure at all times. We managed to complete a few day trips including Las Gatas for snorkeling and buckets of beer, La Perla on Playa La Ropa beach to relax with friends staying in Zihuatanejo, and Zihuantanejo to shop for souvenirs with our daughter. We cannot wait for adventure number 8 to Ixtapa, would recommend this condo and the Amara to anyone and plan to rent again from Mike and Sandi.
