Las Brisas Ixtapa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionWhile the Las Brisas is a great resort it is not your full all inclusive. Your meals and drinks are included but there are no watersports or activities. The food here is excellent and lunch and dinner are all a la carte. This resort is quite large, so be prepared to walk and do some stairs. The rooms are very nice, all with ocean views and big balconies. Be careful to read what is included and not included in your package as you must sign for everything you order and if you sign for something that is not part of your package, you will have to pay at time of check-out.
I was drawn to this property by its architecture and appreciated it even more in person: my patio was totally private yet had an expansive view of the Pacific and the 400 room hotel nestles into the hillside instead of dominating the natural beauty of the spot. Plenty of shade (or protection from light rain) at both the beach and the pools. As a woman in my 50s traveling solo, I did not venture outside of gate--and had no need to. Las Brisas provided a scenic, quiet, affordable getaway with everything I wanted. I might even make this an annual destination!
We have been staying at the Las Brisas hotel for over 25 years. The location and the staff are 5 Star.?The facilities need a face lift. Our daughter had to move a room twice because of leaky ceiling's. The large adult pool was closed for construction. Expedia had no notice of that. For several days the hotel had almost 70% occupancy in the small of the pool was nowhere near enough space for everyone to enjoy. We will come here again because this is our "second home" and we have many friends we have met in that area. But if the hotel management does not do significant work to the hotel we fear that eventually it will become an undesirable place to stay. As far as the staff the lobby bar for breakfast restaurant in the pool staff as well as Concierge will do anything they can to make your stay absolutely fabulous you will feel like you have known them forever after one encounter. They are also the other reason why we would continue to return.
Pool paint, tile are cracked and chipping off, chairs lounges by the pool and beach are beyond old, ripped and worn out. All inclusive option is really not that good of a value, there is no buffet and food options are very limited. Staff was great, and location is wonderful but the hotel is in serious need of an update.
Went with husband, his brother & sister, and their significant others for 6 nights over the Memorial Day weekend. Even though we were all under the age of 30, we weren't interested in a super energetic "party-type" atmosphere - we wanted something more leisurely and low-key, while also offering plenty of activities if we were so inclined. FOOD WAS AMAZING. Tennis courts were very nice. Nature trail around campus is gorgeous. Private resort beach is beautiful, but the waves are monstrously huge....you can't do much swimming. Town of Ixtapa is a short walk from hotel - Zihu is a cheap cab ride. Bike trail around Ixtapa is impressive. I am a runner, and enjoyed jogging around the relatively safe-seeming resort neighborhood roads in the hills above the ocean. Rooms were standard; walls are very thin. Resort got very crowded with families over weekend, but was quiet during week days. Most patrons spoke Spanish, but hotel staff spoke decent English. Breakfast buffet was a daily treat! I really can't say enough about the food. Summary of drawbacks: weekend crowd with ill-behaved kids, thin walls, must make dinner reservations well in advance, ferocious waves, LOTS of stairs and walking (but I actually liked that... some people wouldn't), not in immediate vicinity of other Ixtapa resorts, not super convenient to local restaurants. OH... almost forgot... Saturday night dance "show" was atrocious. I'd definitely go back though - I very much enjoyed the views, atmosphere, and food!
I booked this resort because of the reasonable price and the photos, but I lucked out. Las Brisas turned out to be the perfect resort for my family. The location is outstanding, with quick access to anything you'd want to do in Ixtapa or Zihuantanejo. This really is a beautiful part of Mexico, where you can visit a city (neighboring Zihuantanejo) that hasn't been changed by tourism or influences from other countries. It truly is a Mexican city. Ixtapa, on the other hand, is more upscale, but still not over-run by foreign tourists. There are tons of clean calm beaches to chose from within short driving or cab distance, but Las Brisas has its own private beach, and it was my favorite. No vendors or outsiders that make it so you have to watch your stuff. Plus, it's just steps away from the back doors of the hotel. The employees were great! Props to Diego at the front desk who gave me accurate details on where to go and what to eat. Itzel and Ivan at the main restaurant treated us like royalty everyday and got our preferences down immediately, so fresh juice and side dishes were always at our table within seconds of our arrival. These nice people took the time in explain the ins and outs of Ixtapa so that we could have a drama-free vacation and not have to waste time figuring things out on our own. This resort offers an all-inclusive option, but we chose not to pay for that. This allowed us to eat in town, as well as at the resort, which has five restaurants, including at the pool and the beach. Still, eating at the resort was very inexpensive and the food was tasty and safe. In La Costa Grande (this part of the state of Guerrero), your money goes much farther than in other parts.I recommend Las Brisas because it was clean, had everything you'd need on site, but mostly because it had a good feel to it. We spent 9 days at Las Brisas, and it is now our favorite destination in Mexico, even over places like Playa del Carmen, Cancun, and other beach towns.
