I don't get how some can complain. We just returned from a 1 week stay at the El Presidente in Ixtapa. Service was superb. Food was great. We ate at a restaurant every night except one we ate at the buffet. Except for a few orders of bad pork ribs the food was exceptional. We never saw a cloud all...

This was an inexpensive, long weekend trip booked fairly last-minute. I read the reviews here, but shrugged them off basing them on different tastes and expectations of the writers. We were booked into a basic room, they had our room pre-assigned, but we wanted a King bed, so asked to be moved, which they did. The room was musty (no...

Just returned last week from our 6th visit to the Presidente in Ixtapa. Weather was perfect, as usual. In the 80's every day with beautiful blue skies, ocean breeze and no snow for hundreds of miles. We love coming back to the Presidente mainly because of the outstanding staff. Everyone does an excellent job and each person you come in...

Late 20's / early 30's couple on first all inclusive trip. Wow it was great! The crowd at the hotel was a complete mix.....families, couples our age right through to seniors. If you are single and looking to pick up this is not the resort (unless things radically change at spring break?) We opted for the oceanview room and despite...

This is the second time we have been to Ixtapa and love it. The staff that we personally delt with, Manuel, Cesario, Teo, Pablo, Cesar, Jesus, Angel, Maria and Dioselina were all EXCELLENT. During our stay a few people were injured due to falls, allergies etc. and the staff went overboard to assist these people. Food is up to Canadian/American...

What a wonderful vacation my wife and I shared at the InterContinental Ixtapa. All groups within the hotel shined, but the restaurant team was truly outstanding. With many different eateries, each with a different theme, it’s hard to believe that each is able to capture the essence of their style so successfully. After our second dinner we found out why....

We just returned from a two week stay at this hotel and had a great time. The service was excellent and the food for the most part was real good. Loved the hamburgers at poolside they were great. The pools were very nice with plenty of room but the best part was the beautiful beaches. If you love to walk...
