Exquisitely appointed 2 bdrm unit on 16th floor of the newest, most upscale resort on Ixtapa's best beach. Our unit is very spacious with comfortable high-end furnishings, flat screen TV's with cable and blu-ray players in family room and both bedrooms, unequaled view of the entire beach from balcony, free phone calls to US and Canada and your own wireless internet. Master bedroom has king-size bed with pillow-top mattress and private bath with large tiled shower with rain-shower head and walk-in closet with hotel room type safe. Both bedrooms have balcony over-looking golf course, marina and mountains. 2nd bedroom has two queen beds, both of which also have very comfortable pillow-top mattresses. All rooms offer ceiling fans. Unit has 2-zone air-conditioning. Since there are no adjacent hotels with loud noise we often leave all sliding doors open at night and hear only the waves crashing and enjoy the ocean air. Smell only the ocean, no smell from outboard motors at this end of beach.
Dining room, which adjoins family room and kitchen, seats 6. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll need and features dishwasher, gas range, oven and stainless steel appliances. We provide toaster, blender, coffee-maker and all necessary utensils. If desired, our local management company can provide personal chef. Washer/dryer in unit. Balcony furnished with chaise lounge, 2 comfortable sitting chairs and table for 4. We also provide lightweight beach chairs you can bring down to ocean's edge to watch sunset with your feet in the water.
The front door has a keyless touch-pad entry system so no worry about finding, losing or not having enough keys.
This complex offers a first class resort-style vacation experience. There is 24 hour security at front entrance and at beach and a 24 hour lobby attendant. On the ground level there is a large, welcoming child's play room overflowing with toys and games. There is lighted tennis and paddle-ball courts on site and ample parking (although a car is not necessary in Ixtapa). A gym with first rate equipment is available for a small daily fee. Unfortunately, it is not available to renters during Christmas, New Year's and Easter weeks.
Adjacent to the on-site administrative office is a business center and a large theater area.
The pool area is exceptional. There is ample sun-drenched or shaded seating and a giant 70m infinity pool overlooking the sand, where you'll likely spend many hours perched on the edge watching the waves. Additionally, there is a large child's wading pool, a separate adult-only pool and 2 large jacuzzi's. Because the pools themselves are never shaded, the water is luxuriously warm. Seating is either pool-side or under the palapas on the sand. The building's wireless internet reaches both areas. In either area, there is drink and snack service available from the pool-side snack bar. Their food is surprisingly good and very affordable.
Our local management company will greet you, orient you to the facilities and to the unit itself. They have 2 on-site employees and a well-staffed office right in town. They are readily available by phone or email, or front-desk personnel at complex can contact them for you. They are attentive and typically able to resolve the rare issue very promptly. Of course, we also remain available by email.
Playa palmar is a beautiful 1.75 mile stretch of clean, soft sand. Some areas of the beach offer very gentle surf great for children and other areas of the beach have more significant waves for boogie-boarders and body surfers. Jet-skis, para-sailing and banana boat rides are available.
The town of Ixtapa is compact and offers multiple restaurants from very affordable to elegant, high-end dining experiences. One of Ixtapa's best breakfast places is the Marina golf course restaurant across the street. Very affordable and open to all. There are ATM's, a small craft market, gelato shops, pharmacies, coffee bar, and several small convenience stores. A large fully stocked supermarket is 15 min away in Zihuat.
You will find the people to be warm, welcoming, easy-going and eager to please. Please check our calendar for availability.

Seth Strichartz purchased this condo in 2013
In the winter, we crave perfect, warm, dry weather and thus love Ixtapa. This unit is in the newest, most upscale complex on the best beach in Ixtapa and the amenities are 5-star. We have been coming as a family since our children were young; we owned elsewhere on this beach and jumped at the chance to own one of the nicest units in the nicest complex available.
Our goal is to share our 2nd home with you and have you come to love Ixtapa as we do. We have gone to every length to meet all vacation needs and are always open to feedback so as to further improve the experience.
The unit was fabulous, spacious, high quality luxury. The complex was amazing. The staff was super helpful. The pool is better than the pictures! Walking the 2 mile beach was a pleasure. We loved Ixtapa. I had been a little apprehensive about going to Mexico because of the drinking water etc. None of us had any problem. The owner answered my many questions promptly. we can't wait to return to Ixtapa, even though I never thought I would find anything better than Hawaii!
We have been going back to this property for several years with friends and we feel like we are coming home each time. The property is in pristine condition and the location, view and amenities cannot be beat.
Over the years I have stayed at a few other BVG marina condos and this is the best one.
The owner is very interested in your vacation, at their condo, and corresponds with you promptly.
The condo is first class is every way. The view is beautiful. The condo is clean and well maintained. You have your own wifi. The kitchen is well stock with any utensil and dishes you may need. The beds are very comfortable. The condo was much better than I expected in everyway.
We were very happy at the condo. Everything is so nice! The owners are very thoughtfull because everything you need they have it!!
The decoration, the details are so nice! The condo has an amazing view and the property is great, the pools, the beach, the staff.
Is very well maintained. You can hire a maid tohelp you with the cleaning at very reasonable price.
The only thing that was not working was the T.V. remote control on the Master Bedroom, but it` s just a little detail.
We were very pleased at this condo.
Definitely we recommend this property!!
Thank you and hope to go soon again.
Where do I start? The condo exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and felt like home. It was equipped with everything we needed, comfy beds, bedding, towels, & kitchen utensils. It also had a FABULOUS view and nice huge deck to lounge on. The BVG staff (pool & bar/restaurant/security) was excellent. Previous guests left suggestions to restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities to do. This was a great help.
Downtown Ixtapa was within walking distance & Zihuantanejo was a short bus ride away (10 pesos & cheaper than a cab ride).
Home owner was a pleasure work with. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We will definitely return and recommend this place to our family & friends.
We are on the quiet end (no nightly hotel show noise) of beautiful playa palmar beach. Lack of hotel noise allows us to open all windows at night and sleep with cool ocean breezes. At our end of the beach we hear the waves, not the partiers. We smell the ocean, not outboard motors. The sand is soft and smooth and clean. The beach offers parasailing, jet-skiing, banana boating or a more peaceful area. The Marina golf course(voted one of best in Mexico) is across the street and Ixtapa's other course is 2 miles down the road. The Marina's restaurants are 5 min walk away and the village with numerous restaurants and shops is 10 min walk down the main boulevard. The fishing village of Zihuatanejo is 15 min $5-7 cab-ride or $0.75 bus ride away. Ixtapa is family and adult-friendly, no spring-breakers here. Starting right in front of our complex is the paved ciclopista, a 10 km bike/walking path through an ecological reserve to playa linda. We like to walk the ciclopista in the morning, then have breakfast at one of Playa Linda's many small restaurants right on the sand. We then take either a 75 cent bus ride or cab ride back to Ixtapa. Biking, snorkeling, scuba-diving, eco-friendly kayaking through beautiful mangrove-rich salt marshes, deep-sea fishing, golfing, para-sailing, jet-skiing, Ixtapa/Zihuat has it all. Although we feel perfectly safe here (we have been coming with our children for 10 years) our complex is gated with 24 hr security at front gate and the beach. We think you'll love it as we do. Not least of all, the people are warm, welcoming and friendly.
