We just returned from a week in Ixtapa at the Presidente. It was EXCELLENT!!! The Presidente is a great place to stay. The Ocean View room is definitely the BEST. Contrary to what others have said - the beds were fine, no mosquitoes, the food was great, etc. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

This was a last minute holiday in fact I call it suicide travel where you book the day before departure and just leave on an adventure. You cannot be fussy, just have your bags packed and be ready to go at all times! I was given three choices Cuba, Dominican Republic or Ixtapa. I understand weather conditions and opted for... More

We just got back from the Presidente this week; Stayed Dec 4-11th. Overall, It was fabulous but here are my random thoughts & suggestions - First of all, A visit to the massage huts at the very end of the Ixtapa beach (outside of 'Carlos and Charlies') is a must for those that love massages/relaxation- walk down the beach to...

We chose this property for our stay in Ixtapa as we had went to the Presidente in Los Cabos last April and had a wonderful time there.

We are Platinum Members and try to stay with the Holiday Inn brand when ever we can. The staff was very pleasant for the most part (front desk is a bit on the rude side). We always enjoy our stays in the area as we return on an average of 4 times a year! We are a little disappointed not... More

If you are looking for a typical North American luxury hotel this is not the place for you. BUT if you are looking for a pleasant hotel, with excellent service to spend your holiday, you can’t go wrong with the Presidente. The lobby and common areas are quite elegant, and the hotel is very clean. Their a la carte restaurants... More
