WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO THIS RESORT FOR 25 YEARS. THIS YEAR WITH THE ALL INCLUSIVE CHANGE WE NOTICED THE FOOD WAS NOT UP TO THE USUAL HIGH QUALITY AND THE SEVICE WHEN ORDERING OFF THE MENU IN THE RESTAURANT AND BAR WAS SUBSTANDARD AS THE ALLINCLUSIVE GUESTS WERE DEMANDING ALL THEIR TIME AND ATTENTION.. WE OPTED TO USE ROOM SERVICE RATHER THAN BE SUBJECTED TO AND HARRASSED BY ALL THE NOISE AND CHAOS. WE WILL PAUSE BEFORE WE RESERVE A ROOM NEXT YEAR..

Las Brisas Ixtapa

Las Brisas is considered a 6 Apple property by Apple Vacations, unfortunately that rating did not meet our expectations of a 6 Apple compared to other Apple resorts that we have stayed in in various locations in Mexico. I think that Apple will/should revisit that rating so that their consumers have a better understanding of what type of property they are booking. That being said, the property is in general a 4 Apple. It is in a very scenic location, with spectacular views of the inlet bay. It has a private beach with soft sand and plenty of space to take a reasonable walk along the shore. There are plenty of beach chairs and the area is well kept. There is an area to enjoy food and beverages as well as servers to bring items to your chairs. The rooms are clean but average (Ocean view junior suite) in amenities, size. They could use updating. The food in the main buffet area is average with little variation. The service is very good and they all are extremely gracious, friendly. The fitness center is less than desirable with some of the equipment not in working order. It also has very limited cardio machines so when the resort is busy it can be challenging to get in to use a treadmill or bike (only one bike). There are no free weights; just a limited number of machines. It is somewhat air conditioned. The road to get into downtown Ixtapa or Zhiu is proximal to the resort. Ixtapa is walkable from the resort and Zhui is about a 10 minute bus ride for 12 pesos. Great option to have... Overall, we had a great vacation and we would consider using the property again; however, Apple should genuinely review its rating of the property. We were disappointed as our expectations were beyond what we experienced.

Ixtapa Mexico and Las Brisas is a place we have traveled to more than 15 times. It is the perfect vacation for those who want quiet, relaxation, great staff who always make you feel welcome, and an amazing sunset every evening!

Considering there hasn't been a new hotel on the beach in Ixtapa for more than 30 years, Las Brisas remains a solid choice. But it's getting more shabby each year. Again, still among the best available at the lovely resort town, but not near to what it once was. Even the beach is eroding. Cliental is becoming much more family oriented. The atmosphere less upscale. But the views remain gorgeous, the rooms are fine and the price can't be beat, particularly with the peso so soft against the dollar.

Our 7 day stay at Las Brisas in Ixtapa was wonderful, as usual. The layout of the rooms provides ocean breezes and waves crashing on the shore daily. We are always happy with the hotel and restaurant staff, the restaurant food, and the miscellaneous store. The pools are clean and inviting. We like walking into Ixtapa and don't mind that Las Brisas is built on a hill. You can, however, take a cab easily from the hotel or ride the local buses to and from Zihuatanejo. We will return again next year which will be our tenth visit. The fitness center is a nice addition too!

Las Brisas Paradise

I was surprised to learn this hotel is a classic old hotel, because it is very modern and contemporary, with every amenity one can imagine. The staff, in every area, were very personable and helpful, going out of their way to be sure we were comfortable and showered with kindness. The food and drinks were amazing, both in the buffet and snack bar, (very friendly waiters we came to know), and we enjoyed an evening in the Mexicano Restaurant. Our evening in Las Brisas II was interrupted by the need for a doctor to be called to our room, but the dinners we'd ordered were brought to our room. The staff there were so helpful with this emergency, and even called afterward to check on our status with the doctor. Our room was always clean and decorated with petals and flowers! We took advantage of the pool (gorgeous!) and the massage spa. The spa might be an area that could be improved upon and spruced up and advertised more. The massages were adequate and professional. The staff in the shops were very helpful, as were the taxi staff. All in all it was a fabulous experience, with incomparable views and located right between Ixtapa and Zihautanejo. I would definitely return to Las Brisas.

Disappointment in
justatraveler501, Prince George, Canada

This is very disappointing and a waste of 5k dollars. We will never come back here again the place is average at best not 4 stars,far from it. The staff is very friendly this is the only saving grace. The food is average or less ,sometimes you need to read the sign to recognize what it is not comparisons with other hotels in cabo san luca. There is not entertaining at all , in the evening you can drink only nothing also to do. The minibar in the rooms is closest you can get to an empty fridge two beers two waters and some pop. They have no problems paying 100s of dollars for drinks , but if you ask for an exstra coffee pod in the room they will charge extra for it . The internet connection is very strong. Another wzste of 105 canadian $is a trip to the maya ruins, the only thing you see is piles of garbage on the side of the road, the so called arena and the piramed looks like they are newly build for dure not thousand of years old. Stay away

we spent 2 weeks at Las Brisas hotel. It was the most relaxing time i have had in years.a big thank you to David, he was our beach waiter and also victor, the lifeguard. super helpful and amazingly friendly. i loved the hotel and the views are incredible.lots of walking and stairs but i think that is good to be active just enough. lol. i would tell anybody to go to this hotel. only one very small issue was the beds are on the harder side. for Canadians heading down to ixtapa 2 places to eat that you will feel at home are Generals and Franks. both have super food and very warm inviting staff.

A Great Return Visit

This was our 9th visit to Las Brisas. I am always alert for changes after I read the reviews before I leave home. As always, I find the complaints expressed by some are minor and not important enough to notice. In fact, this year there is a major improvement in that there are no bills to sign for all inclusive guests on the beach, at the pool, at breakfast or in the lobby bar. Paper bill signing is still maintained in the specialty restaurants and I don't see that as a problem. A holiday here fullfills my top requirements, perfect weather, very friendly and accomodating staff, private beach (no vendors) and relaxerd atmosphere. The staff are all terrific and I don't want to name one over another in case I forget someone. For those who have visited before I will say the Maritiza the concierge is greatly missed.

Nice place to visit

This hotel is a good place for relaxation. I don't think it is kids too friendly, but this is okay with me. Food on premises is good and drinks are made well too. Personell at all levels is attentive. It is easy to get to Ixtapa after short walk to highway. But the beach is the best thing, no sellers.

Smokers and rude guests

All was great staff, food and hotel.... EXCEPT... The people smoking on beach! Smokers should have their own area to smoke away from the general public. People are smoking in front of children and polluting the whole scene. These people made us keep moving through out the day at beach. Also, there were people that save a whole section with towels and only show up for about 1 hour in late afternoon. They should not be allowed to save the whole day if they are at the pool or in their room for such length of time. Other than these rude guests, the staff and hotel are amazing.
