The two master bedrooms and living/dinning area give you a romantic 180 degrees of unobstructed, panoramic ocean view, off a private terrace that runs the WHOLE length of the condo! ***We have a high chair and porta crib***

All water in the condo is purified so you can take chilled water and ice from the refrigerator or any tap with confidence. Off the kitchen is additional sleeping accommodations, the service quarters, has one double bunk bed. This is also where you will find the full size washer and dryer.

During the evening take a seat on the impressive balcony, which opens up to the entire great room and watch gorgeous sunset over the islands over an icy-cold beer, chilled glass of wine or perhaps it is the “hour of the gin and tonic”. Then perhaps enjoy the flat-screen TV and home theater system.

The condo also has a dedicated private DSL wireless network for your exclusive use. Take one of the two elevators just outside your front door that service just 30 condos down to the pool and the beach. Condo to beach 2 minutes, Outstanding!

Spend lazy afternoons reading under a canopied poolside, or take in a perfect cloudless day floating in the beautiful infinity pool or the adult only pool. The infinity pools border the beach making it possible to hang on the edge and enjoy the views and people watch.

A small separate wading pool provides ideal afternoon entertainment for smaller children. You can enjoy a delicious variety of inexpensive drinks and snacks made by Amara's personal private bartender with snacks, shady tables and endless views.

Go though carefully manicured foliage of beautiful flowers and palms and the gate to the vast expanse of pristine sand and clear, warm sapphire blue ocean. Here you can jet-ski, parasail or banana boat ride or just take a massage in a shaded hut right on the beach for about $20, or even go swimming with dolphins. Enjoy your private palapa and sink your feet into the sand while you enjoy every minute of your own tropical paradise. Not for you today, well, a gym, a business center, and paddle tennis courts are also available on the grounds.

Paradise Ah! You will be back year after year whether a family or a couple.

Spectacular views - beautiful beach - great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for just a week, but what a wonderful week it was. Paul's condo in Ixtapa is fantastic! The openness of the living space, the extended patio layout on the 7th floor and bedrooms open to the ocean made us feel as though we were the only people able to see the spectacular sunsets and the early morning sunrise. With such warm breezes, we never used the A/C.

A walk on the beach was a great way to start the day before relaxing at the pool or reading under the palapas. Walk again a short distance for a beach side massage. With so much to do and so many restaurants to choose from, we didn't eat many meals at the condo, but the kitchen was well set up to accommodate. As it was VACATION, we did hire a maid - well worth it! My guess is that most people do as the condo was spotless. She was able to make lunch, do laundry and clean the entire place almost every day.

Paul's condo at Amara is well situated for the views, food, bars, activities and not far from the airport. The property at Amara has beautifully manicured gardens, lovely pools and a great spot to have fun drinks.

It was our 2nd time there and we are now hoping to bring the family for a more extended stay. The information we received from Paul before arrival as well as the book onsite with so many recommendations made the experience very enjoyable. Definitely go over to Zihuatanejo to shop, enjoy lunch on the beaches or posole in town on a Thursday and have dinner up above the city for a great view. A million thanks for a great vacation, Paul. We thoroughly enjoyed your home!

Kitchen - Extremely small and hot. There was an ample supply of dishes but the frying pans were not fit to cook in so we purchased a new pan and left it there.

Bedrooms - No 1 was good , no 2 was okay mainly as the sound of the waves cut down on the noise from the resorts, no 3 and 4 was not good the noise from the neighboring resorts and Bogarts was so loud even ear plugs did not help the poor quality of the window made it like you had a speaker outside of ii. Then some night shift worker played a tape that was continuous same thing high pitched until 5.00 in the morning every night. Bedroom no 4 come on spend a few dollars and at least put a mirror on the wall since you have to leave the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

To pay for the resort bracelets is a money making ripoff and so is the pool bar your paper work reminds guests this is not a resort but a condo but then they charge you for a bracelet (which resorts would supply for free) and try to force you to use the pool bar which is high priced with poor quality food. Either call it a resort or a condo but it can't be both.

Our family has rented condos all over Mexico for over 20yrs sometimes for 3 months at a time this is the first time we ran into one that was trying to be a resort. In that same time span we normally stay at a resort the week before or the week after the condo stay so know the difference between the two. We have never had a condo that had a bracelet or a resort charge for a bracelet right down to the 6 year old, the only one not charged was the 3 year old .

Owner's Response: I am disappointed your experience was not outstanding. As I say in my welcome email. "If you have a suggestion for improvement please email me. I do not take offense and wish to provide an exclusive outstanding friendly experience." Thank you for your feedback. I also wish there was no fee but this is the purview of the condo administration. I am sorry you forgot you were informed beforehand: Note: Maid, Bar Bill and Amara administration security wristband fees are extra and the responsibility of the Lessee. The wristband fee is 300.00 pesos ($16.00) per person, which all renters have to use for security.

Another great vacation stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at Paul's Condo. We had our kids and their kids join us for a part of our stay. Everything went great. The 4 bedrooms were just right, the wifi, filtered water at the fridge, washer/dryer, and the touch pad entry were extras that we all are greatful for. Of course the view is the best and the location is superb. Thanks again Paul.

We loved staying at Paul's place at Amara! Both the apartment and the facilities were beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with our 2 daughters (3 and 2 year old) and we loved that the place has 3 different pools, one specially designed for little kids. The easy access to the beach and "palapas" was very convenient.

We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Ixtapa!
