Beautiful Beach, noisy rooms with hard beds.

Make food and drinks available at all times. Rooms too noisy. We could hear dishes clanking from 6am-10pm. Beds too hard.

There is a reason it is only 3 1/2 Stars, there are some points that are excellent but other details were they lack. Door lock never worked properly in one of our rooms, Don Quijote restaurant was always full and could not accomodate our entire party and reception area is way to small with not enough personnel for the check outs and check ins, about 1 hour waiting each time. Food is of very good quality with plenty of it. Service around the pool is good especially if you tip them, otherwise you might not see them for a long time. Rooms were clean and staff friendly, minor repairs do need to be taken care of. You are getting what you paid for overall, that is why I would recommend it, value.

What's to Love

The everything-you-want, all-inclusiveness of it is awe-mazing.

Destressing with body wraps, massages and facials at the luxurious spa.

Sunsets over the turquoise water with breath-stealing coastal views of the Pacific.

The rooms have balconies and most have partial ocean views. You're welcome.

Kids club (ages 5-12) and there is babysitting service. Date night!

If you want to explore, you can rent scooters.

 

What We'd Change

Grabbing a poolside lounger can take strategy and determination if the resort's full, pony-up to the swim-up bar or wander onto the beach for more loungers.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 12 miles from the Zihuatanejo airport. Blink, and you'll be there.

If you book a suite, please know they do not accept children in this category - they only have king beds.

Map of Local Area

Quaint and cozy, the towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are quickly gaining a reputation among tourists seeking rest and relaxation rather than the hustle and bustle of large resort towns.
