We stayed a week at La Casita, the bungalow across the cobble stone street from Brisas Del Mar. The cost is less than the hotel rooms and though there is no view it is only a few steps across the street to where the hotel lobby and view is.There was never any significant noise on the street that was bothersome....

We had our wedding at Brisas in November. It was absolutely wonderful, if we could do it again, we would! Lorena helped us with the planning, Edmond with the food, and so many others helped with every detail. Our guests had the time of their lives. Thank you!

We stayed in room 108 ($140 + tax) and loved it, the veiw was the best! It was clean and comfortable. So many plants and flowers. The pool was great. The location was perfect for walking to town and if we went out the main door and walked down the street we could get breakfast at a couple great places.

I found this hotel on this site and booked it for the last two nights of a week-long family vacation. I figured my little brother and I would be ready to have more space between us and our mom by that point. That was a correct assumption so I was really happy to have the reservation at Brisas all set... More

For the first part of our honeymoon, we arrived at Brisas at the top of a hill and entered the open-air lobby. Manuel promptly carried our luggage down the stairs to Chimalpa 107, our room, which was amazing. The room was sunwashed from the light coming in from the huge glass wall/sliding door to our balcony. There were hand-carved wood... More

We loved everything about this hotel. The staff was so amazing and friendly. The rooms were spacious, clean and had loads of character. The pool was awesome, it was right on the beach, the property was maintained to perfection. There is really nothing I can say negative about this place. We will 100% be back here!!

We went for a week over christmas break with our two kids (boys: age 8 and 9) and had a fabulous time. We booked a family suite, because that was all that was left. Normally we prefer a little more space, adjoining rooms or one bedroom with sitting area. But I have to say, the family suite worked out perfectly.... More

We spent a fabulous week at Brisas del Mar in early Oct. 2008 for our honeymoon. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel that offered a chance for us to experience as much of the Mexican culture as we desired. Brisas was the spot. Located on Playa Madera it allowed us the opportunity to venture into el centro to... More
