About the property

4+ bedrooms, 5 baths, sleeps 9

Welcome to Ixtapa and the beautiful beachfront Amara Ixtapa resort condominium.

Amara Ixtapa is one of the newest condo developments in Ixtapa and has the best location: directly on the 1.8 mile Playa el Palmar beach in Ixtapa and across the street from shopping, restaurants and clubs; five minutes from Zihuatanejo, and twenty minutes from the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo (ZIH) airport.

This ocean view four plus bedroom, five bath private residence is one of only thirty in the tower and only ninety on the whole complex ensuring a peaceful getaway from crowded hotels and mega condo complexes. Situated on the third level, it is an easy walk up the steps from the beach, gardens and pools, or use one of two elevators that drop you off right outside your door. It has more than 2200 sq. ft of living space including the full length terrace with walk out access from the living/dining area, and both master suites.

A private high speed WiFi network is available in the condo and free WiFi service is available is throughout the grounds so you can stay connected with the world while enjoying the paradise of Ixtapa.

Living/Dining Area

From the moment you enter the condo, you are embraced by the openness of the room and the floor to ceiling windows that bring the outside in. The doors can be fully opened to the left or right giving the feeling of being nestled within the palms with views to the open ocean.

Tastefully decorated with furniture and décor that compliments the views, the room invites you to relax on one of two full size sofas, and enjoy the sights and sounds of this tropical paradise. For your entertainment, a 50" LED TV and a BluRay/DVD home theater system is available. You can watch HD satellite TV, watch Netflix, put in a BluRay/DVD (we have many, or bring your own) or CD, or listen to one of the digital satellite music stations.

Bedroom suites

With four private bedroom suites capable of accommodating up to 9 persons, there is plenty of privacy for everyone in your party.

There are two master suites with king beds, private baths, and floor to ceiling sliding, wall to wall windows providing beautiful ocean views, ocean breezes and the soothing sounds of the waves on the beach. The first master suite has a 32" LED TV with satellite service, Netflix and BluRay/DVD. The second master has a 22" LED TV with Netflix and BluRay/DVD. The master suites are equipped with high quality linens including luxurious Egyptian cotton towels and 400 plus thread count sheets. All bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers and the showers are equipped with dispensers filled with soap, shampoo and conditioner for your convenience.

The third and fourth bedrooms have town and mountain views. The third bedroom has one queen and one twin bed with a private bath, TVwith Netflix and BluRay/DVD. The fourth bedroom has one queen bed, TV with Netflix and its own bath that is also accessible from the living area. All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning units and ceiling fans for your comfort.

For additional sleeping accommodations, the service quarters has one twin bed and a private bath. This is also where you will find the full size washer and dryer. This room is not air-conditioned.


The kitchen is fully equipped with first class stainless steel appliances and everything you need to prepare a quiet meal at home, that is if you decide not to take advantage of the numerous dining opportunities just outside your door. There are utensils and dishes to cover at least two meals before needing to run the dishwasher. A blender, coffee grinder, coffee maker, toaster oven and even a large George Foreman grill are available for your convenience. The quality pots, pans and utensils should satisfy the needs of the cook in your party, or you can hire a cook by the day to shop and prepare your meals for you. (limited availability)

All water in the condo is purified so you can take chilled water and ice from the refrigerator or any tap with confidence.


Amara Ixtapa amenities include:

There are three pools to suit your individual preferences including an adult infinity edge pool, family infinity edge pool and a toddler wading pool. The infinity pools border the beach making it possible to hang on the edge and enjoy the views and people watch. In the condo you will also find a few floatables, a boogie board and toys for use at the beach and pool

The private beach area has shady palapas and chairs and is right next to a watersports provider who offers jet skis, banana rides and parasailing. A short walk down the beach, you can get a one hour massage in a shaded hut right on the beach for about $20 USD, or even go swimming with dolphins.

The poolside palapa bar offers very reasonably priced (from $2 USD for a beer to $4 USD for top-shelf mixed drinks), snacks, shady tables and endless views.

There are also beautifully landscaped gardens with beautiful flowers and palms.

A gym and paddle tennis courts are also available on site. Tennis courts and discounted golf are also available.

The complex is covered by 24 hour gated security.

About Richard Kirby

We currently live in Utah and have been visiting Mexico for more than 30 years. We have always loved Mexico and even lived and worked in central Mexico for two years.

Richard Kirby purchased this condo in 2007

Why Richard Kirby chose Ixtapa

After visiting all of the major beach destinations in Mexico (Cancun, Puerta Vallarta, Cabo, Mazatlán, etc.) we visited Ixtapa while living in Mexico and fell in love with the small town authentic Mexican feel of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. Amara appealed to us because there were fewer condos and they were larger (all 3 and 4 bedrooms) allowing us to share with our family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

On the beach, close to shopping and dining, a palapa bar with amazing views and pools which border right on the beach.

Beautiful Property and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 bedroom was very spacious and clean, a few minor issues with the appliances but the property manager took care of them promptly.

Over all very pleased with the unit, security, grounds, pools and beach. The bar on the property was very inexpensive and pleasant. Wish List: Cushions on the beach chairs and service directly on the beach.

I would definitely return, had a good time!
