Do not come and enjoy this very nice club: If you don't like the sound of waves breaking on the beach and birds in the trees in your open air suite. If you don't like a little stair climbing on the resort, beach walking and running and an interesting road but safe short walk into town. If you don't think...

I should have read the negative reviews on trip advisor before booking a one week vacation at Club Intrawest - Zihuatanejo. All I wanted was to relax with my family on one of my limited weeks of vacation. Instead, I had to be on top of my game to not get ripped off, to monitor my resort food receipts which...

We spent a week in a two bedroom ocean-view room (#307). The view was amazing and the room was massive and beautifully designed, perfect for our family of five. The room was at the top of the resort but it was an easy walk down and nice to have a walk after meals -- also rides in the golf cart...

We've just returned from our second visit to this property located on Playa la ropa in Zihuatanejo (Zihua). In the year and a half, the top management has stabilized and the result is excellent. At almost any encounter, the standard question is "todo bien?" is everything OK? Our answer was an enthusiastic "yes!" Although small by a lot of standards...

Rooms are very nice and spacious. Fabulous views. Great design of indoor/outdoor concept. Very clean. We were put in building 3, which is across the road and the farthest from the beach( we counted approx. 20 flights of stairs). Didn't mind, however, since when I'm on vacation I tend to eat more and exercise less. Good way to bun up...

Stayed for 8 days in April in a one bed two bath - kids spring break. On the positive side: - Our room (517) had an amazing unobstructed view of the Bay and an oversized balcony with two hammocks. We spent a number of mornings lazing on our balcony. - The beach (Playa La Ropa) is definitely one of the...

This club is one of the top I have visited. As far as I can tell all the rooms have spectacular views of the bay. The building/units cascade down a steep hillside, making problems with some with disabilities, but the staff is great about providing golf cart service up and down, as there are no elevators. The staff is attentive,...

I visited Club Intrawest in mid March, 2013. First the rooms were beautiful, spacious and airy. We had a two bedroom suite near the Main Reception area. That being said there was always a cart to bring us to the pool/ beach. Everyone was very attentive and went out of their way to make the vacation enjoyable. The food plan...

Zihuatanejo is an idyllic resort! Firstly, we booked a lookout suite which are the smallest rooms in the place so we were a bit apprehensive when we arrived. However, the staff were very friendly from the first moment (I'll mention Marie, Eloy, Jorge and Miguel) and our apprehension turned quickly to awe when we entered our room in the sky...
