Rooms are very nice and spacious. Fabulous views. Great design of indoor/outdoor concept. Very clean. We were put in building 3, which is across the road and the farthest from the beach( we counted approx. 20 flights of stairs). Didn't mind, however, since when I'm on vacation I tend to eat more and exercise less. Good way to bun up...

Stayed for 8 days in April in a one bed two bath - kids spring break. On the positive side: - Our room (517) had an amazing unobstructed view of the Bay and an oversized balcony with two hammocks. We spent a number of mornings lazing on our balcony. - The beach (Playa La Ropa) is definitely one of the...

This club is one of the top I have visited. As far as I can tell all the rooms have spectacular views of the bay. The building/units cascade down a steep hillside, making problems with some with disabilities, but the staff is great about providing golf cart service up and down, as there are no elevators. The staff is attentive,...

I visited Club Intrawest in mid March, 2013. First the rooms were beautiful, spacious and airy. We had a two bedroom suite near the Main Reception area. That being said there was always a cart to bring us to the pool/ beach. Everyone was very attentive and went out of their way to make the vacation enjoyable. The food plan...

If you are looking for a vacation that will meet all of your expectations, this is the place. This was our first visit to the hotel and it will not be the last. The facilities, the beach, the view, the rooms, the hospitality and most importantly, the staff will meet and exceed your expectations. The beach is beautiful, no weeds,...

Zihuatanejo is an idyllic resort! Firstly, we booked a lookout suite which are the smallest rooms in the place so we were a bit apprehensive when we arrived. However, the staff were very friendly from the first moment (I'll mention Marie, Eloy, Jorge and Miguel) and our apprehension turned quickly to awe when we entered our room in the sky...

First of all Zihua is highly enjoyable if you intend to kick back, enjoy fresh, unpretentious seafood, and warm ocean water. From the perspective of Cancun, it's Night&Day. Just what I expected. Loved it. We stayed at Club Intrawest, swapping a timeshare, since we had read good reviews. And we were not surprised nor disappointed. Great beach views and access....

We have "traded" with REI and others, utilizing our time share to visit Cabo, Cancun and the like. We enjoyed each experience but the visit to Club Intrawest - Zihuantanejo was truly relaxing, fun and memorable. Upon check in we found our accomodations were not to our liking, just kind of small and too close to the entrance. The Manager...
