I just returned on the 20th of March 2005. Ive traveled all over mexico and this has to be the worst. The rooms are bad the food is even worse and the price well I do believe I was ripped off. This resort is totally in need of a makeover. This is not even close to a 5 star, if...

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Presidente. We returned home on Feb 27th, and had a great time. We like the resort for it's location, friendly service, great walking beach, and the weather. Every time we have had a week of marvelous warm temps. I had read all the previous reviews and agree that the rooms...

I am 22, and have been to this hotel twice. Once in '01 & '04. Both years, I had a great time. There is a mix of people from Canada, Nothern States & Europe. The hotel, beach & service was great! I loved it so much the first time that I went back again. I'm a tanner, so the lounge...

We stayed at the hotel the week of February 21st. We had been doing a lot of traveling and wanted an all-inclusive just to lay at the pool and not have to go out to find restaurants if we didn't want to. Asked for an ocean view when we came in. The desk clerk gave us one (which would have...

Well! I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Presidente Intercontinental hotel. I read the reviews 2 days before I left for Mexico and I was worried regarding some of the negative comments. However; I speak as I find, and found the hotel staff to be very friendly, with or without a tip. The rooms were clean and...

My wife and I returned from a one week vacation at the Presidente on Feb 24, 2005. We stayed in a pool view room on the ground floor. The room had a hard bed, but we slept well. The bath shows signs of wear, but it is adequate. The staff is excellent. All were friendly and helpful as possible. The...

As a first try at an all inclusive resort, we had no basis for comparison with what other hotels or locations might offer. We visited Ixtapa from February 6 to 13, 2005, and found it to be beautiful, very safe and quiet. If you are looking for a place to truly relax, this could be it. The beach is not...

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Presidente Intercontinental from Feb. 5th through the 12th. I was so worried after reading all the negative comments posted about this resort. We were very satisfied with the accomodations and the entire resort. Yes it is an older hotel that could use some updating to the buildings but it...

Stayed at the Presidente with our traveling friends during 1/20/05 thru 1/29/05. We travel alot together and stay at AllInclusives. This is how we rate this property. Hotel cleanliness rates a 5star. We stayed in the "Garden view-poolview" on the second floor. It had the most spectacular view of the pool, swimup bar and ocean. We turned down the room...

Just came back from a trip to the Presidente InterContinental. I read the reviews before leaving and tried to keep an open mind after most of all the reviews were terrible. I must say you will want to think twice before booking a vacation at the Presidente. The hotel has not been updated in some 20 years...not very clean and...
