My wife an I have been to several resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, Israel, but nothing compared to the service and tranquility that we experienced at Club Intrawest in Zihuatanejo. The setting was picturesque. A fantastic architectural design that seems to blend into the coastline. The staff made our visit even more special. The warmest, friendliest staff we've ever...

We stayed here for 5 nights. The room was very nice, spacious. Service was good. People are friendly. You can hear the waves while sleeping. Birds can be heard early morning. There were some bugs but nothing major, No complaints about all that. However there is after 6:30 PM nothing to do at this resort. No restaurant for dinner, no...

Our first trip to this wonderful destination. Can't wait to get back. Rooms were clean and unique. Views from the restaurant were beautiful and the staff couldn't be more friendly. It was a short walk to the village (all down hill) but we recommend a taxi back (very steep hill up). You need to be in good shape to get...

First, about Club Intrawest at Zihuatanejo: The resort is built on a cliff and includes lots of stairs. They emphasize this on the site and are not exaggerating. I would not enjoy this resort with young children. The free laundry and spacious suites are wonderful. The construction (to the right as you look at the resort from the beach) would...

My wife and I stayed at Club Intrawest for our Honeymoon, and it couldn't have been more perfect. It's not a mega resort overrun w/ tourists, so you can enjoy the hotel and all it offers w/o having to compete with noise and other people. The staff is incredibly friendly... David and Alfredo at the bar/restaurant were particularly helpful and...

This was our second trip to Club Intrawest - Zihuatanejo and it was event better than our first time in 2009. We arrived somewhat stressed after missing a connecting flight in Mexico City and spending an unplanned evening there. Within minutes of arriving, all was forgotten thanks to the welcoming staff at the club. We had a 1 bedroom, 2...

Club Intrawest is one of our favorite places.... The room (villa) was wonderful. The staff amazing.... Sweeping ocean views. Everything was perfect. Amazing restaurants that you can walk to, or a short cab ride away. Everyone there made our stay perfect. There is a HUGE grocery store that is a $5.00 cab ride away. Our cab driver even helped us...

Rooms - The rooms are very dark and had poor lighting. The kitchen consisted of a hotplate, tiny fridge, and small micro. Without a grocery store nearby, i guess the designers want everyone to use their resturant and meal plan. Meal Plan - Don't buy the meal plan! The food is poor and expensive. I agree with other reviews that...

Going to Zi is nothing like going to Cancun, Puerto Vallerta or the interior of Mexico. This is a small fishing village with charm, hospitality, and local flavor.
