Reviews for Las Brisas Ixtapa
I came to the Las Brisas Hotel for a Business meeting in 2005 and I was very impressed by the architecture and the facilities. I returned this year with my wife to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We were both very pleased with the hotel facilities, the private beach and the friendliness of the staff. This hotel is a gem and we would not stay anywhere else in Ixtapa. We are planning to return next year with our children.
We booked the Brisas Beach Club at Las Brisas Ixtapa. Beach club offers a full breakfast and a cocktail hour between 6:00pm and 7:00pm. Alejandro and Pedro are very very attentive during happy hour and at breakfast. The best thing about Las Brisas is the beach. There are plenty of palapas and itâ€™s semi private, so there are no vendors present. Staff waiters will appear every once in a while to see if one wants to order drinks or food. Taxi rides into Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa range from4 to seven dollars. Tours are available through the concierge. Our favorite was the sunset cruise. ($65 each includes drinks and small dinner) The staff at Las Brisas makes a big effort to be friendly and courteous at all times.
First, let me preface by saying that I plan to return next year. There are some very unique, wonderful things about this place, but it would not be for everyone. If you are American, you need to know that this hotel caters to Mexicans, and is definitely not up to the standards of what some Americans might expect from, letâ€™s say Club Med down the road which is likely full of Americans. I personally liked being in what I felt was truly an authentic Mexican hotel, with stunning Mexican architecture (it was designed by a famous Mexican architect, the "bones" of this place were incredible.) If you appreciate building design and architecture, this hotel cannot be beat. It's just a totally unique design literally built into the side of a mountain. Which ever room you pick, know that you can stand on your patio with no clothes on, and no one would be able to see you, and you would have an unobstructed view of the ocean and the secluded cove where this hotel sits. It's completely private - beach and all. It's almost fortress-like, and would be hard to sneak into this place! Security is tight, and where it is built would be hard for a "stray" to ever get into. So I felt extremely safe. We had a junior suite on the top floor (floor 22) which we loved. Clean, spacious. However, our first room (a deluxe, standard room) was not good, so the hotel upgraded us for no charge to a junior suite. I would only go back to a junior suite, unless the hotel decided to refurbish. The standard room had patio furniture that needed to be thrown away, or at least refinished, and room looked tired. Unlike when I stayed there 30 years ago, the standard room had no plants on the patio. (Junior suite had plants). However, both standard and junior suite had an authentic feel to it and were very clean. By far the best thing about this hotel is the private, secluded beach with huts and incredible service (Sergio, Hector, and Jose took very good care of us, and we constantly had a drink, and bucket of ice next to us with cold water and beer). The beach was inpeccably clean and situated in a private cove. Loved being at the beach all day, and nothing could have improved that part. The big downside of Las Brisas is the food, as others have remarked. We did the all-inclusive package. The buffet lunch and dinner were almost inedible, wasn't even sure what some if it was (signs were in Spanish), and it was at times lukewarm. (If you are used to a cruise buffet, you must lower your standards a lot!). All-inclusive for a week allows you to eat three dinners in one of three nice restaurants. That also gives you 50% off on room service (dinner one night in the room was good.) Loved eating at night at Las Brisas II. You had to walk down a path lit with candles to get to the outside restaurant overlooking ocean. (It had a sort of "Secret Garden" feel to it). We had no less than three lovely waiters waiting on us at all times. Food was fine there - but if you are a "foodie," you might be a bit disappointed. Next time I may forgo the all-inclusive, and eat some nights in town. Las Brisas could easily fix the food problem which many have commented on. Not sure why they don't, and perhaps this explains why there weren't more fussy Americans staying there. I didn't go to Mexico for the food, so was ok with it (other than with the buffet lunch and dinners). A few more comments. Looks like the hotel is being repainted, and there are places they have not gotten to yet. Again, I liked the authentic feel, and wasn't looking for an American-ish hotel, so it was ok with me. The gardens and "jungle" you walked through to get from place to place could use some better upkeep. (I'm a gardener, and was dying to get in there and yank some tired looking plants.). Other comments: The employees are really nice, but the head manager needed some training. I had lost my luggage for 5 days (not the fault of the hotel), but couldn't get the manager to call be back about it to reach the airport that didn't answer the phone. I left her 2 messages, and she never bothered to try to reach me. Also, the hotel does not answer emails. I tried 3 times before I arrived to tell the hotel that there would only be 2 of us instead of 3, and to inquire about our room, but never got a reply. People at the front desk, the bellboys, and severs were all really good, though. No complaints about them at all. Finally, I kept thinking the whole time how my 82-year-old mother would not be able to handle this hotel. Lots of walking, stone steps (how ever beautiful). And if you're handicapped, don't even think if staying here! You'll be frustrated. All in all, despite the negatives, I do plan to return next year. It's a beautiful, quirky, unique place in a unique, quiet setting. Just know that you may have to lower your standards just a bit if you are used to, say, a cruise, etc. P.S. I slept well. Great mattress, pillows, and linens.

The beach is quiet and clean with spectacular sunsets and a broad shore. Service is average: it took me one hour to check in and had to wait 25 min for transportation between the lobby and one of the restaurants. Infraestructure is good but could have better maintenance. Employees are very kind and do their best to service you. Food is average unless you eat in the fancy restaurants, which are really expensive.

Second time back to Las Brisas (was Westin Ixtapa for our first visit) and we were not disappointed. Great relaxing place with excellent private beach, warm water and attentive beach staff to bring you food and beverages. Pools are nice as well. Food and drink is reasonably priced compared to USA which is nice if traveling with a family. Biggest negative was the check-in process, which included waiting in line for a hour (got there at 4:00pm which is check-in time), it was hot and I felt someone from the hotel should have engaged with the folks waiting and at least apologized. Note if traveling with 5 or more cabs in Itaxap/Zihutanejo are small (no vans) and don't like to take more than 4 people, some will but it is a tight fit. We found in our experience most taxi drivers to be rude, but we did have a great experience with Jose Manuel - cell # 755 113 00 32 and would highly recommend using him to get around, he will make great recommendations as well. Not much nightlife if you are looking for that or have 20 somethings traveling with you, more of a quiet and relaxing getaway.
