About the property

Multi-Couple Dream Rental! 2 King & 2 Queen Suites with Privacy & Luxury For All


Pictures of paradise are just pictures, but they are all we have to show you. That's why it is so important for you read our testimonials. 100% FIVE STARS. What better way is there to really know that your stay will be exactly as advertised?

PARADISE is an experience, or rather, a mix of experiences that involves memories, emotions, and all the senses. Ixtapa shares the same latitude as the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Welcome to the Tropics! As you browse through our pictures, please add your own seashore soundtrack, the feel of tropical breezes on your skin, and the bouquet of lush tropical gardens. Imagine slipping into one of our blue-tiled infinity pools or settling down with a good book, in the shade of a poolside pergola or at one of our private palapas on the beach. Imagine hooting with abandon as you dash into the warm, crystal-clear, Pacific, or holding hands as you stroll barefoot on Ixtapa Beach, on a balmy, moonlit night. Its all here.

AGAIN, READ OUR TESTIMONIAL. Some start with “Wow!” and wow is about right. After six years, three vacations per year, we still find ourselves thinking “Wow” every time we open the front door. You will too. WE PROMISE.

AS YOU ENTER, you realize that the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, glass doors plus the glass balcony walls, completely blur the line between being indoors and outdoors. This is true of our beachfront suites as well. ONLY 12 OF 90 AMARA CONDOS have balconies that extend to the bedrooms, and of these, only 6 are on the 14th floor, tucked in the tropical shade of the penthouse patios above. Only a few of these 14th floor condos are available for vacation rental and, of these, ours is centered, away from the large hotels at either end.

THINK OF THIS PLACE as an open-air, 2,200 sq ft, observation platform. Here, you can watch the sunset from the living room couch, from a King-sized bed in a master bedroom, from a lounge chair on the balcony, or from a seat at the dining room table. And please, don't forget our sparkling sunrises, and impossibly romantic moonsets.

BEST OF ALL, the condo is continually awash in fresh onshore ocean breezes (daytime) and cool, earthy, offshore breezes (nighttime). Since the Amara has no hallways (hence the private elevators), the ocean breezes come in through the oceanfront glass doors and leave through the mountain view windows in the kitchen and Queen bedroom suites. You control the amount of breeze flowing through all the rooms, simply by narrowing the openings of the mountain view windows. Imagine that!

On our beach we have, parasailing, banana boat rides, jet ski rentals (go early for smooth jetting), massage tents, plus a sparkling clean ocean with a clean sandy bottom and beach. At the marina you can go deep sea fishing, scuba diving, or dine right above the water. At the Amara, we have an air conditioned weightlifting/aerobics gym, paddle tennis courts, full tennis courts next door (by arrangement at Sunscapes), and three crystralllne, blue-tile swimming pools with a private poolside bar and grill. At Playa Quieta, take a water taxi to Isla Ixtapa for a day of hiking, tidepooling, swimming snorkeling, sunning and dining. Or, take the Picante Sunset Cruise out of Zihuatanejo. Ixtapa has nice beachy boutiques, great restaurants, bars, clubs, atms, car rentals, bike rentals, scooter rentals, bike paths, grocery stores. In short, all the conveniences. While in town, swim with some dolphins at the Dolphinarium, cool off at the water slides, go horseback riding, scootering, and bicycling with your kids. But best of all, just hang at the Amara. You will find it tough to leave the shade of the poolside pergolas. The ocean breeze, the garden fragrances, the sound of the surf, a good book, and a nice cold beverage can zap the wanderlust right out of you.
