This hotel is less than a block from the main drag where all of the "big box" tourist resorts are located. It is in a large garden like setting. There are birds and flowers everywhere. Across the street is the artisan tourist market; walk through the market and you are at the beach. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Furnishings are very functional. All units have kitchenettes that are well stocked. And for groceries, there are two OXXO and a Mersa two blocks away There are multiple pools and one has a water slide. There is a restaurant on site, but we have never used it as there are so many delightful "loncherias" within walking distance. We stayed here 10 years ago and nothing has changed - that is a good thing.

We stayed here for 3 weeks and it was fine. The rooms are very large - like an apartment. Housekeeping does a good job and the staff are helpful. The pools are nice and are cleaned every morning. It's not a 5 star by any means but has everything you need. The kitchen has a MW, full fridge and a 2 burner hot plate. It is stocked with a coffee maker, juicer, blender, dishes but minimal cooking pots and utensils. We might have been able to ask the office for more but didn't even think of it. I had brought some things with me and would be glad to recommend the same if you email me. The hotel fills up on the weekends but is fairly quiet mid week. All in all it was a good stay. I felt safe and would stay there again.

We went with our teenage daughter and our teenage niece. We found the hotel very clean, staff was friendly and the pool area was uncrowded. The location was very close to bus route to Zihua and only few minutes walk to the very beautiful main beach. Hotel has colonial Mexican style which suited us. We will definitely return for another visit. One downside was no in room wifi, only available in lobby area, and even then not always working.

Staff was nice and helpful. The rooms were nicely furnished, however no closet to hang your clothes in. There was a chest with four drawers, which was enough for me. The hotel advertise washer/dryers and dishwasher in the rooms. Not so in this unit. I had to go outside the property to do my laundry or pay a lot to have it done by the staff. I had a problem getting change at the front desk for tips etc. Since I was gone every day, it was only a minor inconvenience. I will be back for a month Christmas staying at the golf club with all the amenities instead. Still I recommend this place. It just depends on what your needs are.

Beautiful suite with all the amenities. Unbelievable value. Clean and secure. We don`t spend much time in Ixtapa, preferring more of the rustic Mexican village scene to the city, but when we hit the city this is THE place to stay. Beautiful and well kept
