We have a 3 bedroom ocean view for 6 adults and 10 month old baby. Large Deck with cold tub, loungers and hammock. We have cooked every day in the outside kitchen. There could be a few more kitchen tools available but we made due with what came in the unit.
Beautiful view, can't be beat. We were concerned with the amount of stairs as we are in the highest unit #308 and 4 of us are 50 plus. We would walk down to the pool and then shuttle back to the room early afternoon so it wasn't a problem.

Room Tip: Try for lower floors where possible. This resort is on a cliff so everything is steep and lots of s...

We were originally going to Miami for 5 days just as the hurricane hit, so cancelled and ended up, purely by chance, at the Embarc for 10 days. What an amazing time we had.
Not only our first trip to Zihuatanejo but to Mexico, and we fell in love with the place.
Our original booking was confusing as we really didn't know what type of room we had booked, on arrival we had a one bedroom one bath which was gorgeous but no sea view (the sound of the ocean was like being teased as we couldn't see it), so we upgraded to a one bedroom 2 bathroom and wow.
The food in the restaurant and at the Surf Club is amazing, and Alberto Alfredo and the guys at the Surf Club are fabulous. A must is the romantic beach dinner, a lot of food yes, but awesome and great service.
We were also lucky to see the release of the baby turtles, the care the security staff take of them is amazing.
Safe to say we will be back.

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at Embarc Zihuatanejo. The staff were extremely attentive, beach access perfect with many friendly tour operators available to organize fun excursion. My favorite thing must be the excellent $10 massages on the beach.

My husband and I spend a glorious week at Embarc Zihuatanejo. The Resort is beautiful, the staff is super friendly, every single one of them. The food was excellent and very well priced. WiFi, parking and use of laundry facilities is included. Plenty of beach towels, very comfortable beach chairs. The protection turtle eggs and release of turtle program is fantastic. All the staff is committed to the program and show tremendous pride in the program and the resort. We cannot say enough good things about the staff; ALL were so friendly and welcoming, the ocean water temperature was perfect. We cannot wait to return next year!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view, but some might be only partial views Buildings 4 & 8 have the best vi...
