Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo Hotels

Las Brisas Ixtapa


  • Great balconies and views
  • Great beachfront
  • Away from the hodgepodge of hotels on the main strip


  • Lobby area is cavernous and not that inviting
  • Amenities and on-site restaurants are really expensive
  • Not within walking distance of main strip ($4 cab ride away)

Fodor's Review

The balconies of this pyramid-shape resort are reason enough to stay here—sunbathe or sip cocktails from a deck chair during the day and stargaze from your hammock at night (junior-suite balconies also have hot tubs). Las Brisas is at the secluded southern end of Ixtapa away from the main strip, so there's nothing but blue water to gaze at. The resort is built into a hill and has a bit of an awkward layout (it's a bit of a hike from the main building to the pool complex),

but who needs gardens to stroll through when you're on the best stretch of beach in Ixtapa? Standard rooms have low ceilings and are a little narrow, but they have heavenly pillow-top beds and small sitting nooks with comfy window-seat-like couches.
