10/10 Exceptional

We have been to Zihuatanejo several times and have always loved the area. This stay with the Embrac just enhanced our perception of the many opportunities in this area. The property was everything we could've hoped for especially the wonderful staff and service which we received. A particularly pleasant surprise was the quality of the restaurant on property and the excellent food at the beach as well. The views from the balconies are incredible and everything met our expectations. We are looking forward to returning.

Would stay there again. Learned much about what we would do different. ATM on property would be very helpful. Had trouble getting Pesos to use for tips and local shopping so would have exchanged at airport if we had known. Best part of the room was the comfortable mattress. We know everyone is different when it comes to them but it was right for us. Never wanted for towels. Kitchens need a refresh, a bit worn. Some plumbing problems but not a deal breaker. Beach area was great. Excellent service from staff. Food was good, mixed drinks a little weak. We noted that all the glassware for the rooms and the dinnerware in the restaurants was done in fine taste.

Great place!
This is our favorite place to stay when we come to ZIHUATANEJO. You couldn't ask for a better place. The architecture is very cool. The staff is absolutely great. They are willing to go the extra length to make sure that your stay is great. The area is awesome. Nice people. Beautiful beaches. We have been coming here for a long time and Embarc makes the trip even better.

Fabulous location and very well maintained property. Staff were very welcoming and professional in their approach to making us feel like valued guests. Only thing that could use improvement was food. Not great. Not typical of good Mexican cooking. Otherwise would highly recommend.

Love this hotel! Def my favourite hotel in the entire world - the proximity to the beach and pool are amazing. All the staff are super friendly and exceptionally helpful!! From getting a taxi to having something delivered to your room everything is greeted with a smile and willingness to help! Make sure to get an ocean view room as when you open your bedroom shutters and the living room doors you are able to see the ocean from bed and listen to the waves crashing! Can’t wait to return next year !

This is a beautiful property on Playa La Ropa. Our room--king bed with living room, small kitchen, 2 baths, large patio--was wonderful! Great pools and lovely well-maintained beach area. All of the small thatched hut restaurants on the beach are close as well as more fancy restaurants just a few blocks down the street. Downtown is very walkable from the resort. Although there were not a lot of activities at the resort, we really enjoyed the market visit and the cooking class that was provided. We would love to come back again to Embarc Zihua!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Embarc. The accommodations were fantastic! The view of the pool and La Ropa beach were incredible. The staff was friendly and very eager to please. I have been coming to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo for 38 years and this was one of my favorite trips. I definitely plan to stay at this hotel again upon future trips to Zihua.
