How to Get There
We are disappointed with our stay here. We have experienced lack of customer care. Staff seems unmotivated. Buffet food is less than desirable. Many food items does not look good. Room is somewhat tired. AC not cold enough, which makes for uncomfortable room experience. Ixtapa is very hot. The patio furniture is well weathered and looks like its from the 1980's. The hotel is in a beautiful location on a great beach with soft sand. Nothing to do in the evening, not enough English TV channels in the room, we watched Fox News and CNN. This hotel is 3* at best.
Good: Beautiful location with very good ocean views from every room, very good beach and lush tropical gardens and pathways.
Not good : This is not an upscale resort. On weekends, the hotel is over run with bus loads of customers who overwhelm the staff. Service from Friday to Sunday goes down a lot. Buffet food not good. Attitude of staff not good enough, they did not look happy and did not care for us much. Old hotel, room not OK enough. No entertainment. As a guest here, we did not feel welcome. Cannot recommend this hotel.
At checkin Fillipa checked us in. I don't think his English is very good. He told us nothing. We did not know about having to book the restaurant or about the Dress code. The first evening we were turned away at a very empty restaurant. We ate at the buffet and the food was cold. At lunch we ate at the pool restaurant and we would have to ask for a menu as they don't offer it. The food at the buffet here is especially cold as it is heated by one or two candles. The food off the menu is hot and good. The fridge in the room has 2 beers in it and I think 5 pops, poor amount for all inclusive. One large water per day is not enough. We come from a cold climate to hot. 45 C difference. I can easily drink 3 large bottles a day. We are told if you want more water you need to buy? We travel a lot as my wife works for Westjet Vacations and she wants to know what she is selling. There is a coffee machine in the room? Why? Only 1 regular coffee 1 decaf? Most of the 4.5* all inclusive now have cafes throughout the resorts.The bed was very hard and we asked at the front desk for foam to make it softer. The maid came and put a larger duvet on the bed. Another communication error. The views are stunning which makes the views 4.5* however the lack of the all inclusive experience makes it a 3.5*. In my experience the hotels that are partial all inclusive with $ amounts on the menu are not as good. I understand that given the demographics and area that this may be what works best for the hotel. When we had dinner at the restaurant down the steps the two items I wanted off the menu were ones that were extra money? If I have to pay it is not all inclusive. We spent a lot of money and I do not expect to pay for dinner or water. We love the area however I don't think we would return to this hotel.
The rooms and view and beach were lovely. Staff was super kind. The food was not great, but that's to be expected. Also, they accidentally charged me an extra fee, but reversed it after we spoke. Overall, I would recommend for pure relaxation.
This is a wonderful hotel, great location and beach. The dress codes for the three fine restaurants needs to be inforced. The upfront greeters should advise no entry with baseball caps, tee shirts and blue jeans. Otherwise, we will be back.
