Fodor's Review

This is almost as enchanting as any of Zihua's luxury hotels—and at a price that won't haunt you when you get home. Rooms and services aren't extravagant, but there are many such touches, from the lobby's stone floor and wicker ceiling to the staircases that wander the lush cliff-side grounds. Rooms have Talavera ceramic sinks in wooden surrounds, carved doors and furnishings from Michoacán, molded plastic bathtubs, and large balconies with hammocks; most have fabulous

bay views. Situated on the beach, the stone-and-concrete-floored Bistro del Mar offers simple, delicious Mediterranean food, a wonderful view, and a welcome breeze.

A good deal

We liked this place. Our first room was too small (3 year old in tow). We upgraded to a suite that was perfect. Big enough, without being too much. Loved the outdoor room (except the bats that lived there at night). Service was good and beach was nice and secluded.

Lovely and convenient!

Three friends and I had a GREAT stay at Hotel Brisas del Mar April 8-12 (2006). Front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely with local touches of Mexican tile, art and carved wooden furniture and doors. Each day we were treated to fresh flower petal arrangements on our beds. Walkways and public areas are beautiful with tons of potted plants, local art and statuary, fountains, and a pair of chatty parrots. The in-room

fridges, safes and AC/fan wall units, adjoining balconies, restroom by the pool and travel agent's desk in the lobby were all convenient, as was the small grocery store across the street and proximity to downtown Zihua (close enough to walk but not so close as to be noisy). Breakfasts at Bistro del Mar were delicious. We did not eat dinner there. (Check out La Casa Vieja around the corner!) Cocktails from the bistro bar weren't particularly good, but they were convenient and refreshing on the hot beach. I would definitely return!

Just perfect!

If you do not want to pay for Casa que Canta or Villas de sol, Brisas del mar is the best option for you, there is no better place in Zihua or Ixtapa for the price you pay in Brisas del mar, wonderful rooms and view... very good service (except for room service!), la madera is a beautiful beach and you can walk to town and to la Ropa

Disappointment at a price

This place was a complete disappointment and a terrible value. The hotel is run down, the furnishings are cheap and of poor taste, and there is a sporadic sewage smell that runs through the property. The service was non-existent and they have ridiculous policies like their towel policy (they threaten to charge you $30 if you dont return your beach towel by 7 PM, the only problem is there is usually nobody there to take your towel back). The

food and service at the restaurant, Bistro del Mar, was mediocre at best. The only thing this place has going for it is the view and a spot on the small Playa Madera. Avoid it if you can.
