What a great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to Amara for 10 winters and have stayed at the Amara (same condo) all ten years. The Difranco's have been fabulous people to rent from not only flexible to our rental dates, but also as our guides in our early years.

As you can review on the website, the view from the balcony is breath taking. Beaches are perfect sand for walking or swimming. Beach lounges and palapas are provided. As small restaurant is available on the grounds. Pools are great and the entire complex is well maintained. Sunsets are the best part of the day from the 6th floor balcony!

With ample space for cooking, lounging, sleeping or just hanging out this is the spot for a large family or just a few couples getting together for a getaway. Lupita (a family friend) is available for mid week touch ups or to cook a meal.

We have over the years had a few minor condo issues, but they were fixed either that day or the next. We are outside enjoying the beaches, fresh air or sight seeing!! Problems were corrected when we were gone!

Talk about the restaurants! They are right across the street and no need for a taxi. Every possible kind of food is available and reasonably priced.

If you are worried about security, don't. The complex is completely gated and security is always present day and night. You have to check in at the front gate either coming or leaving.

This is the spot for a winter vacation. Weather is perfect, sand is fantastic and vacation location is spot on. Enjoy!!!!!

Wonderful complex, unit needs maintenance

  • 2 of 5

Yes, loved our stay, unit needs maintenance. This is our third time staying at Amara. The place is fantastic. Grounds and pools wonderful, spacious and well kept. Balcony gorgeous for viewing the sunsets. Unfortunately, this unit had issues with the A/C and the water not working while we were there. The owner sent Maintenance staff to try to repair it, but they didn’t come up with a permanent, workable fix, so we vacated the unit after 4 days. Beds and lined linens are also are to the point of needing replacement. If owner can take care of these concerns, one could stay there moving forward. Again, owner tried, to get help, but problems not resolved soon enough.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Three familes(six adults and two babies) stayed at this location. We spent a week and had a great time. The location was perfect for us. The facilities was beautiful and clean. Right on the beach. The balcony view is amazing Michelle/Cliff was very responsive to emails and requests. We used Lupita for cooking and the two meals were delicious. It was nice to have her cook since we had two babies. If we go to Ixtapa as a group, we will definitely rent again.

Wonderful Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 rented Cliff's condo last year for 2 weeks at Christmas time. It was amazing, so spacious and well equipped, just as described. Cliff and Lupita were wonderful, taking care of anything we needed. to celebrate our traditional Christmas! We are returning for Christmas again this year, with the whole family and 2 new grand babes. We love the condo, the area of Ixtapa and Zihuat and the surfing at Las Saladitas. What a fantastic family holiday, one of our very best!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to tell you how perfect this was for our trip. The set up of the condo is so perfect. It was incredible to be able to stretch out and relax. It felt like a home away from home. Everything is exactly as it's stated here. So many other owners in complex know of Cliff and had nothing but wonderful things to say about him and his wife. Lupita..OH MY GOSH...Lupita!! Use her for cooking and cleaning. She is amazing. There are many great places to eat in Ixtapa - but to have Lupita's cooking is undeniably the best in town. She is such a kind person and does an excellent job. Cliff we truly cannot thank you enough for the wonderful accomodations you provided. We plan to come back many many times. I have amazing photos if anyone needs to see more pictures. The view is breathtaking. The staff down at the Palapa are funny, attentive and kind.
