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.
Used to be one of the best resorts in Ixtapa-Zhuia 15 years ago, but still a nice quiet hotel. A decent walk to anywhere but the seclusion is nice. Staff and services are still good. Pricing has adjusted as well, making it a nice value
This is a huge hotel with large beach and amazing swimming pool. You have a choice of restaurant though I was a bit disappointed by the breakfast and other restaurants in the resort. The hotel is really great, rooms very spacious and clean, staff friendly. The hotel deserves a 5 stars and the food a 3 one in my opinion. I highly recommend for families, couple, friends. The hotel is so big you won't get bored there. If you want to enjoy the region you can easily take a taxi. I personally stayed in the hotel for 5 days and found a lot of things to do. I highly recommend this hotel
This is my second visit to Las Brisas and they did not disappoint. This is an older property on the end of the hotel zone. For the amenities and price you cannot beat the value here. Our room for two adults was approximately 75 dollars US. Had we chosen the all inclusive package our price would have been 140 US but we came during a national holiday so we could not take advantage of that deal. The property has a beach area, adult and children pool as well as multiple restaurants and bars. Walking distance to the hotel zone and for less than a 5 dollar cab ride you can reach Zihuateno for boats to nearby beaches and great shopping/eating in Zihua. We had a basic room which was more than adequate. Very comfortable and quiet, the rooms come with a coffee maker and fridge. Great for storing juice, beer and sodas. They even have a small gym if you like to work out with treadmills and freeweights. The resturants on site are very good quality and a good value. This place is a gem, I'll be back again next Thanksgiving for another stress free holiday. Fair warning, bring bug spray if mosquitos love you. They are somehow able to sneak into my rooms no matter how hard I try to keep them at bay. This has been an ongoing issue I've had (even in Switzerland!), mosquitos love me so I must travel in a halo of Deet or Off Deep Woods. Good travels!
The staff is very helpful when you need anything. Very polite and always available. We have been coming here since the mid 90s and always stay here. Love the private beach and shade available if you don't want to be in the sun. One year we looked at some of the hotels near downtown and decided we still liked Las Brisas better. Like the larger waves here instead of the smaller ones at downtown hotels. Beautiful pools and nice restaurants.
We chose an all inclusive package because this resort is "bit" out of the main hotel strip of Ixtapa on its own private beach. We wanted a very low key, "downtime" type of vacation and Las Brisas was perfect for this. Overall, the hotel is a bit dated but the service is outstanding. The room with sitting area and terrace is spacious. The outdoor terrace is absolutely private and our room on the 21st floor had an amazing view. The all inclusive package for 8 nights included 4 meals at one of their specialty restaurants. Portofino, the Italian restaurant, was outstanding and has won awards. The Mexican one was very good as well. All meals and most drinks were also included. The package does list what is not included so it is worthwhile to check that out. Trust me, they stock your room with beer, water, and beverages every day along with all the other items provided at restaurants, lounges, buffets, pool and beach side -- you won't have to worry about having enough to eat or drink. More the opposite. The buffet restaurant had a very good breakfast choice. Dinners there were good as well. Service was outstanding in the specialty and buffet restaurants as well. We went to the beach every day and did not bother with the pools, which look great by the way. It was just our preference. Service beach side and even the food at the beach restaurant (snack bar) was very good as well. We did book through Expedia and for a bit more than $200 a night (CDN) everything was included - all food, drinks, taxes, and so on. The check in and check out was effortless and I had my credit card ready for any extra charges and there were none. (The all inclusive program says that tips are already included but we just left tips with every meal or drink service to ensure that our server(s) received the actual tip in cash - this seemed to be very appreciated.) This hotel has a program where they check every night to see if sea turtles have come to shore to lay their eggs. They then put them into a protected area away from predators to hatch. While we were there, we saw three separate releasings of several hundred hatchlings at sunset. That was a great experience. Final thoughts - we were there in November and at times, the beach was never very full of people - it is probably much fuller in January, February, and March. On weekends, Las Brisas filled up more with travellers from within the country itself for a weekend get away. As a result, we saw a few wedding parties -- ceremonies on the beach. Overall, this was one of the most relaxing experiences we have had. If this is what you are looking for, then I highly recommend. We will return but next time, we will learn more Spanish - this would be helpful when speaking with some hotel staff and even more so for excursions into Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo.
