Amazing 2 Story Beachfront Penthouse at Amara
The view from the 15th and 16th floor of this Penthouse is breathtaking! It is truly paradise here. Picture yourself relaxing on a private terrace at the top with 180 degree view of the ocean. Or, perhaps, admiring a spectacular sunset while in the private jacuzzi on the upstairs terrace. Words just can't describe the natural beauty of the little piece of heaven known as the Mexican Riviera. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy a carefree vacation.
The penthouse offers 4200 sq. ft. between 15th and 16th floors. You enter into a large living room and dining room with floor to ceiling glass sliders that open up from either side allowing you to bring the outdoors in. There are two Master Bedrooms each facing the ocean where you can step out onto the terrace to welcome another day in paradise. The other two bedrooms face the golf course and have a lush tropical view where you can also see the heart of Ixtapa across the street. The towers were designed where there are only 2 residences per floor so you will have privacy and be able to have the best of both worlds, oceanview and tropical beauty.
The location is right in the heart of Ixtapa. You can walk to restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques, shops, grocery stores, and drug stores. Amara Ixtapa is a newer development located right on the main Ixtapa Beach, Playa El Palmar, where you will have all the amenities of a luxury resort, including daily maid service.
Guests can take the elevator down to beautifully landscaped grounds that includes 3 pools, one huge infinity pool for families that feels like it goes right into the ocean, another infinity pool for adults only, and a small wading pool for children. Guests can enjoy very reasonably priced drinks and snacks made by Amara's own bartenders, Ricardo and Enrique. There is a gate that leads right to the sand where guests can enjoy private palapas with lounge chairs.
Once you have discovered the beauty of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you will fall in love with this amazing place and return time and time again. Our hope is that you enjoy every minute of your stay at our place in Amara Ixtapa.

We adored staying in this lovely condo. When we walked through the doors it literally took our breath away. The view is spectacular, the condo is such a nice size and so well appointed and we just felt thoroughly spoiled. We kept pinching ourselves to see if it was real!
The bedrooms worked out perfectly for our size of family. I loved listening to the waves at night and waking up to that view. I can't tell you how many photographs I took of those rocks, they changed color with the various moods of the sky. I couldn't keep my eyes off of them.
We mostly hung out at the adult pool or on your upper deck. I have no idea where the days went, it seemed like they ended all too soon every day and I'd wonder what all I'd accomplished and really I'd have to admit it wasn't much, other than I did get through a lot of books. The weather was so fantastic too. We had a day of rain early on and then sun, glorious sun ever after.
We loved Marabelle, the maid, and had Lillianna cook for us twice which was great. We used Mario any time we needed a cab, he was wonderful. We felt very well cared for. We had delicious dinners out, my favorite restaurants being Tentaciones (where we celebrated my husband birthday), Coconuts, and El Mare.
New Years Eve was amazing. I'd never seen anything so spectacular in my life. The lanterns being sent out to sea to begin with, followed by LED lit balloons from the neighboring property, and then those fireworks that were so close and extravagant. It was a real treat.

Our family stay at this fabulous condo in Ixtapa was perfection. The property is beautiful with its well-maintained colorful gardens, three pools, and a tropical breeze greeting all day long. The sunset from the balconies is a photographer's dream! Mexican culture is just outside the gate and back inside finds peaceful solitude. The condo itself offers every amenity, wonderful staff, and is very spacious. We are ready to plan our next vacation at this property.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It truly makes us smile when we read the positive comments not only about our home, but about beautiful Ixtapa beach and Zihuatanejo. We feel it's still a wonderfully authentic Mexican experience. We try and share that with everyone we know. We strive to have all the amenities that our guests would need and then some. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and even more that you plan on returning to Casa Spadaro. That is the best indication of your experience. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting next season!

We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was in the Amara Penthouse. Four couples stayed for eight days and the space was great. We never felt crowded or like we were on top of each other. The private terrace was amazing. The views were spectacular and the added space was perfect for coffee in the morning while we planned our day, or using the grill in the evening to cook the fish we bought at the fresh fish market in town. The location is wonderful – located in the center of everything it seemed. We didn’t have far to walk if we wanted to go into Amara and we could walk the beach in both directions. If you look at the pictures and think the penthouse is nice, wait until you actually arrive – the pictures don’t do it justice. We found the owners extremely helpful and easy to work with. They offered suggestions on things to do and answered every question we posed. We highly recommend this rental property and hope to one day be lucky enough to stay there again.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We fell in love with that view, too! We absolutely love to hear about the positive vacation experiences that our guests enjoyed. Glad to hear you took the opportunity to try some of our suggestions, too. There is so much to enjoy in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo and each time we visit, we try to discover something new! We hope you will choose to stay in our home again the next time you visit Ixtapa.
