Ixtapa 2020
Stayed 10 days at this condo in the Amara with 3 other couples. Plenty of room for all, fantastic views from the balcony. For some of us this is our second stay at the Amara probably 8 years ago. Amara is a great property truly loved. The grounds and pools are in great shape. This property is loved by the condo owners you can feel it. Would love to come back but we just need a direct flight from Seattle.

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded our expectations!
What a wonderful property. Everything was as it was described by the owner and exceeded our expectations. Unit is clean, decorated beautifully and has plenty of room. There are plenty of bath towels and pool towels-- you won't run out. We used the washer and dryer. It worked great. Claudia, the property manager is great to work with. She met us at the property when we arrived. She walked through everything with us and showed us how to operate everything in the unit. She also helped us with groceries and dinner reservations. Very responsive if we had a question. There is a bar/snack hut down by the pool. Food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. Great place to hang out and watch a sporting event on TV or play cards if you need to get out of the sun, but want to stay down by the water. They do a nice job of taking care of the property. Great location too. Right across the boulevard from lots of shops and restaurants.

4/5 Good

Home away from Home
The unit was great! Initially we planned on staying with another family of four but they no longer were able to make the trip. We kept the unit anyway as we didn’t mind the extra room. We were 4 and I honestly feel if we had been 8 it may have felt cramped. However, there was ample, comfortable seating inside & out. I dropped the ratings on cleanliness of the property & check in process but the reasons would not discourage us from returning. The (lack of) cleanliness of the palapa bar & lack of maintenance around the pool area throughout the day brought me to drop their rating. There were always unfinished drinks around seating areas which indicates guests are on vacation & require more service. These “drinks” would bring ants so they need to consider poolside service, even if it’s at least just for cleaning up. There is zero service at the pool so you have to be willing to go to and from the palapa for anything (from the limited menu). This was actually the most disappointing part however, we adapted easily as we are very familiar with the town and where we like to eat. In addition, the proximity to everything is one reason we’ve returned for our 15th visit. The check in process was very vague. We arrived by taxi, were dropped off with our bags and did not know where to go. There is no reception/check-in or lobby area. After a few minutes of confusion, A gentleman with an Amara shirt saw we were confused and directed us to leave our luggage at a set of stairs and proceeded to lead us down into an administration office in the basement location of the building. Upon confirming our name & the unit we were staying in, the ladies in the office called our property manager. Once Claudia arrived and assured us she would bring us to our unit and explain everything we were more confident in our stay. Upon arriving to our unit we found it to be very clean and organized. We had freshwater waiting for us, amenities such as toilet paper, paper towels & a linen closet stacked with clean towels. We have stayed in other condos where we needed to make a grocery store run for these basic necessities so it was nice to see they were already here for us. We exchanged information with Claudia, she was very easy to reach and very accommodating to any of our needs. The grounds are very well maintained and the pool is very nice despite the lack of service. The hallways and elevators were always free of debris and in good working order.

5/5 Excellent

Slice of Paradise INDEED!
We absolutely loved every moment in IXTAPA! Sandi and Mikes condo was beautifully colorful, cozy and spacious. We've stayed at Amara once before and love the relaxing non-crowded environment, perfect location and wonderful staff! Prior to booking the place Sandi was very helpful and responsive answering all the questions I had. Our family had a wonderful stay at the Property and look forward to visiting again next year! Thank you Sandi, Mike and all the staff that made our stay a great one!!
