Booked a one bedroom two bath beach front, room 806. The view is fabulous overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay. May get a little noisy if the Sotavento condos next door ever get started up again, it has been six years. Granted it is the beginning of their low season now but beach massages have been discontinued. Noticed numerous small maintenance needs that...

We are Embarc club members but this is our first visit in this resort. Excellent and pleasant staff warmly welcome us. We arrived earlier than check in time and was very lucky to be accommodated right away to have good rest after a long bus ride from Mexico City. Our room was very spacious, good for up to 4 people...

We just returned home from a week at Embarc. It was amazing! The room is wonderful, the view great, the staff is the best. We hung out at the beach everyday. They prepared a fantastic dinner on the beach for our group. We love everything about it. The entire staff is amazing. Can't wait to return!

Room 412 is a studio accommodation. NEVER book this room. It is just as lovely as any of the other rooms BUT ... it is on the far edge of the resort next to private homes and a nearby other resort. IT IS NOISY ALMOST PERPETUALLY! Between the resentful next door neighbours and the nearby other resort there is constant,...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom/2 bath unit in building 8. The view was beautiful and the sound of the waves was so soothing. The entire resort is very relaxed and comfortable and the staff is really helpful. Self-serve laundry facilities are free and there is an ice machine in every building. The "paint your own" mexican pottery was really...

This was my second visit to this wonderful beachfront resort, and I have to say I was very disappointed with their unit assignment for my sister who had recently had a double knee replacement. Don't even think about coming here if you need assistance with mobility issues. We had emailed and sent a request via facebook that my sister would...

So first time in Zih. Did not know what to expect. Clearly it's a hike to get there, whether you go thru Dallas, LAX, Houston or Mexico City. But well worth the hike. The property is very safe and the units aware amazing. The staff could not be more friendly, food was great at the bar and the restaurant. The...

Just got back from a 5 day stay at the Embarc. It was beautiful! We had a 2-bedroom suite for our family of five, and it was incredibly spacious. There were 3 full bathrooms, a full-size table with chairs, kitchenette and living room area. The doors opened to a large balcony with lounge chairs, a towel rack for drying wet...

My mom and I stayed at this hotel, last May when it was just changing from a Club Intrawest Property to the Embarc. This hotel is excellent with all rooms having a beautiful view of the bay. I will advise that this hotel had 204 steps from the beach to our room, but the hotel has a golf cart that...

We have stayed here three times over the last five years. Each time it seems to improve. This last time we stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. It was wonderful. It had two beautiful balconies overlooking the bay. Rooms were clean and well cared for. We had maid service everyday. The front desk was helpful in providing advices....
