As many noticed - Great/Outstanding Service - Very Friendly staff in abundance. And they do know how to create festive atmosphere in the evening. Ala Carte restaurants decor at night dramatically differs from daytime. Resort located in the bay with sandy beach and mountains are opening and closing bay views. Wave (yes, generally only one wave went thru) was a...

Our Family stayed for 2 weeks from March 4th till the 18th...the staff was friendly and the food was good...as mentioned in earlier comments they seemed to have no rules regarding noise levels at night...the 1st week we had Mexican families that would sit on their patios talking and laughing till 2:00 - 3:00 a.m. every night and the 2nd...

This was our second time in Ixtapa. We stayed at the Melia Azul last year and chose the Presidente this year. First impressions of the rooms were poor, this is one of the oldest hotels on the strip and shows its age. however it was very clean. My largest complaint about the rooms was the shower, the temperature was inconsistent...

I booked the Presidente because it stated that "spring breakers were not allowed". They must have meant American spring breakers. We arrived on Friday, March 9 and had an enjoyable Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, March 11, a number of buses arrived and and all of sudden the swim-up bar was over run with Mexican "kids". Most did not seem...

We stayed in Ixtapa MX for the first time and loved it. The hotel was very clean, friendly, lots of activities planned for guests. The water was suprisingly warm but the undertow is strong and churns up the sand quite a bit. But the waves are fun, bring a boogie board. The room was well used but very clean and...

We were with a group of seven and stayed one week, January 19-26, 2007. This is an older hotel which is kept very clean, with very friendly staff, always ready to serve your needs. Our stay seemed extremely special from the moment we arrived until we departed. Our rooms were ready on arrival and the concierge "Jorge" was the best...

We have been to several all inclusives including Cuba, DR, Cancun, Huatulco and Jamaica. Here are our thoughts.. Intecontinental Ixtapa has a gorgeous beach, that does have some larger waves at times. We could boogie board and body surf, and get a beach chair without any problems. The sunsets are different every night and the long beach allows great walks....

I don't get how some can complain. We just returned from a 1 week stay at the El Presidente in Ixtapa. Service was superb. Food was great. We ate at a restaurant every night except one we ate at the buffet. Except for a few orders of bad pork ribs the food was exceptional. We never saw a cloud all...

This was an inexpensive, long weekend trip booked fairly last-minute. I read the reviews here, but shrugged them off basing them on different tastes and expectations of the writers. We were booked into a basic room, they had our room pre-assigned, but we wanted a King bed, so asked to be moved, which they did. The room was musty (no...
