Pros: beautiful beach, architecturally beautiful hotel, great views from rooms.
Cons: tipping for the breakfast buffet--see above.
Location: Soleiado is the best restaurant in Ixtapa, about 1.4 mile walk from Las Brisas. Be sure to visit the pyramids about 25 miles south of Zihuatanejo.
Excellent hotel for the price, beautiful beach, excellent breakfast buffet. We had a package which included the breakfast buffet and there was sign in our room saying that the 15% tip for this buffet would be added to our bill. But when we checked out, the tip was not added. Embarrassing, because we had not been leaving tips because we thought they would be added to our bill. The hotel needs to remove the sign saying that the tip will be added to the bill.

Cons: The hard beds could be improved on.
The hotel is very spread out and it takes quite a few minutes to get from your room to the beach or a restaurant. The staff was a little inconsistent. Our room didn't have a safe, we looked in all the usual places, it was not in our room. The front desk young man told us that yes there was a safe, (there wasn't). We had to wait 4 days to get one. Other reviews commented on the stairs, I thought to myself, how bad can it be? There's a crazy amount of stairs. If you have mobility issues or just can't stand walking 35 plus stairs in one go, don't stay here, you'll be frustrated. Our bed was rock hard, I thought they'd forgotten the mattress, I thought we were sleeping on the box-spring. No, that was the bed, we did ask for and got an extra mattress pad that made the bed much nicer. The room was very nice and the ocean front view was beautiful! The food was good and the beach food service was so fun.

This is great place to kick-back and relax while enoying an outstanding hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, rooms staff view
We have stayed here several times over the past 15 years. We are always impressed: by the setting and the building, by the staff and the room, and by the nearby town, Zihuatenejo. The site is a hillside, going down to a private bay on the Pacific. Each room has a private patio with a spectacular view; we have never had a less-than-perfect room. There are a nice beach and a gorgeous pool area. The setting for the breakfast buffet is possibly the most enjoyable feature of a stay at this hotel: the buffet is great, but view of the birds, foliage and the bay are amazing. We always go to Zihuatnejo (a short taxi ride), where we browse shops and find enjoyable meals. The hotel concierge has recommendations and makes reservations at nice restaurants. We keep coming back; we have recommended Las Brisas to others, and they have all reported wonderful experiences. What else can I say?

Better than "just" Good

Pros: great beach with life guard., excellent beach or poolside services
Cons: No free Internet
This was our eleventh stay at this hotel and we will keep coming back. The staff, especially on the beach, is awesome. The hotel is situated on a large private beach, so it is free of vendors and serviced by the hotel staff. The hotel is built into the side of a hill, so there are many stairs to be navigated to get down to the beach. There is a service that will drive guests to the beach if needed. The food is pretty good but expensive. We find it a better option to either walk into Ixtapa (morning excersize, about 1 mile), or cab it (45 peseos) to the local restaurants (Blue Shrimp 49 pesos for 2 eggs, toast, coffee, juice...same deal at Chile Beans) . That compares to just coffee at Las Brisas for 37 pesos. I do recommend this hotel highly. It's one of our favorite vacation spots. Also, we never had any feeling that there was any danger from "drug gangs...etc. We felt very secure even during our stay.

Our favorite resort, been 5 times

Pros: Quiet
This was my 5th trip to Las Brisas Ixtapa. It is truly one of the most beautiful spots. The pools could use a little updating, but otherwise, the views are to die for, the service old-word and impeccable. My family's favorite destination.

A Great Hotel With A Superb Location

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, fabulous location, awesome staff
Cons: No free Internet
Nestled behind rocks this hotel is so quiet and peaceful away from the hustle and bustle. And that is unique in Ixtapa as a lot of hotels are right on the beach but because the Brisas is sheltered by rocks and the water it is only really accessible to guests. The hotel is situated on several acres and at one point it was considered to be one of the op 10 hotels in the world. The staff is amazing and mades you feel very welcome and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. One problem is that it needs updating throughout even though the rooms have undergone a major renovation but despite that it is still an amazing hotel. We have stayed their more than once. The hotel is like a star that has faded a bit over the years but despite that is still a star.
