Room Details

What's to Love

We love the huge variety of water activities here. The pools are large and lively, and there's a beautiful island just off shore that's accessible by kayak.


What We'd Change

Some of the rooms don't have balconies at Melia Azul Ixtapa. But all inclusive activities will probably keep you too busy to spend much time in the room!


Why You Should Go

The golf courses are stunning, the pools are so inviting and the kids get a water park. Everyone gets something to love at this resort!

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.

Hotel Description

Melia Azul Ixtapa: The Hotel for All Inclusive Family Fun and World-Class Golf

Cut loose and unwind at Melia Azul Ixtapa, a hotel with all inclusive packages that make Mexico more enticing than ever. Set among majestic rock formations rising above the Pacific Ocean, this kid-friendly hotel is close to two nearby championship golf courses and offers a huge variety of on-site activities.

The resort scores big with kids thanks to the water park where kids splish-splash through fountains and little water slides to their hearts' content. Children also get to play at the three Flintstones(TM)-themed kids' clubs. Supervised activities like T-shirt painting and Pirate Night take place at the Baby Rock Club, Bamm-Bamm Club and Cool Club, each created for different age groups.

With the little ones busy whooping it up at the kids' clubs, grown-ups can head to the greens for world-class golf. Campo de Golf Ixtapa was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., and is 6,898 yards. This 18-hole, par-72 course has a restaurant and mobile bar. The 6,781-yd Marina Ixtapa Golf Club was designed by Robert von Hagge and was ranked among Mexico's best by Golf Digest.

After a round of golf, join the kids back at the hotel to enjoy the three gigantic pools. In the lower pool, the swim-up bar keeps things cool and relaxed with cervezas and sodas. Poolside bars, Arrecife and Piscina, serve the other pools. Guests can also chill out on the long, tranquil beach, it's the perfect spot to catch an afternoon nap if you're loaded up on sunscreen.

Once you've played and rested your way to a hearty appetite, head to the end of the boardwalk to check out the Oyster Bar for a seafood dinner. Looking to amp up the elegance? Make reservations at Costa Azul, the adults-only Mediterranean restaurant.

Another standout feature here is the evening entertainment as the resort puts on a music and dance show each evening at the outdoor theater. After the show, the party keeps going at Breezes, the boardwalk disco. Or, have a low-key nightcap at the lobby bar, El Palamar.
