    just got back 2 days ago. Good food and great staff. Raymondo and Simon at the swim up bar - my 2 new best amigos - hard workers and excellent service. Christopher the concierge was amazing throughout our stay, beyond our expectations. We can't thank you all enough for a memorable vacation. -- corrected stars

    Great resort in Ixtapa! With a few hiccups this time!

    This is the fourth time we have stayed at this resort and the first time we went in November. We have always found this place to have the best people. Antonio, our pool waiter, was so good at ensuing we had a drink. Always friendly and quick. The activity workers, Raphaël, Victor, Majella, and the rest were, again, great at ensuring that the beach volleyball and other activities were fun. Again, the meals were all good at the various places except, to our surprise, the Bluewater restaurant was closed due to renovations taking place for the entire 10 days we were there. We like to eat there as it is basically located outside away from the main building and has a great dinner menu. The renos also closed the adult only beach location for the our entire time and shut the swim up bar down for 2-3 days. Other than these surprises, all else was good. We always book the Sunclub room and enjoy specials drinks and snacks in their club room. Marcelo, the evening bartender, is a wonderful person, always willing to help and easy to talk with. We will probably go again, but we were somewhat surprised with not knowing that the renos were going to take place, However, as we booked through WestJet vacations, we mentioned the surprises were encountered, and they said they were not aware of the renos taking place either and contacted the resort. The resort responded by giving us 3 free nights accommodation which, I guess, is a decent response.

    Love this place

    We arrived Nov 20 to Nov 27 2023 from Canada we upgraded to sunclub. check in was easy. The hotel itself is fantastic, ocean view from each room. We did book Ocean front room 1714 which has 1 king bed and couch/double bed 2 patios 1 big bathroom. Nice size room. The beds are super comfy. This hotel has had lots of updates since the last time I was there 2 years ago. The pools are always clean, the resort is always clean, food is good. The service at the pool from Antonio was fantastic, we rented the gazebo off Jesus to enjoy our stay. This place is really good, walk across the street to DT Ixtapa. Great location , Excellent food, drinks and service. Love this place.

    Best hotel in Ixtapa

    We return year after year. This hotel has by far the most amazing staff. You are treated as family. A large portion of staff speak English. Rooms are very nice and since Hyatt has purchased the property they are making upgrades to areas and rooms. I highly recommend. It’s a two minute walk to all of downtown shopping and dining. Right by bus stop to go to nearby beaches or towns. The beach here is great for walking. High wave action so caution while swimming. Hotel pool is large.
