I really have no idea where begin. My now-husband and I chose to get married at Brisas after researching destinations and hotels all over the world for more than 6 months. We wanted something authentic but accessible, and I can honestly say that our experience at Brisas was so much better than I had ever imagined. We stayed at Brisas...

If what you are looking for is an authentic mexican experience, complete with friendly helpful people, delicious food, wonderful weather, and great water activities, this is the only place to go. I can't say enough about what a wonderful vacation this was. We came for a week and stayed two extra days - still not long enough! The steps are...

My girlfriends and I just booked our third trip to Brisas Del Mar in Zihuatanejo. There are six 'mature' but definitely not old women in the group, and we've had so much fun every year that we're not interested in looking at any place different to go. We love the cozy, laid back atmosphere of this fishing/tourist town that is...

Absolutely fantastic. Really great people that work there, killer pool, great food, and an incredible view. We got an unbelievable deal on hotels.com, a room with two doubles for 69 a nite, so with three of us staying it was dirt cheap. I can't believe you can stay in a place like this for cheaper than a best western.

This is a small hotel with personality of "we are the best". They are! A Mexican best attitude of service and pride. We planned to stay for four days and then go back to Vallarta but decided to skip Vallarta and stay at this hotel for three additional days! We asked for extra towels, pillows, water, wireless connections, etc and...

Our recent stay at Brisas Del Mar was absolutely fantastic! From the moment we checked in the staff was friendly and accommodating. They took our bags to our rooms and proceeded to give us a tour of our room while sharing information about the hotel amenities. Our room was extremely tidy and spacious, almost too big for two people! We...

A great hotel located on Playa la Madera, Zinhuatanejo Bay and a ten minute walk from downtown along the seafront path. From check in to departure the quality of service was excellent. The bedroom was spacious with plenty of room for us and our teenager! Most importantly the beds were very comfortable and we loved the view of the bay...

Our family of four enjoyed this hotel very much. We stayed in the Zihua Suite which was perfect. The property is very clean and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel had so much charm and was located perfectly in Zihua bay.

I thought I would save some typing by recommending the reviews of others. Hotel was clean, spacious, friendly and located on a great spot overlooking the bay. Zihua (Bahia) Suite was actually too large for the two of us. The architecture was totally unique. This place was the best, as you will read in the other reviews. I will say...
