We also received a complmentary 5 night stay as a bonus from a time share we purchased in Florida. The Florida trip not so good....

February 3, 2007 We loved the place! We had a two bedroom unit that was very clean with daily maid service. It was great for the whole family. The kids loved the pools, waterpark and amenities. The beaches were nice, we really liked Ixtapa Island and Las Gatas. Everyone at the Ixtapa Palace were very friendly and helpful. They gave...

We had received the 5 night stay at Ixtapa Palace as a bonus from the purchase of a timeshare the previous year. After reading some of the other reviews, I had not set my expectations too high, but we were pleasantly surprised. The Ixtapa Palace is set up to cater to locals, but a little preparation helped us 'gringos' fit...

My wife, 2 daughters and I spent 4 days in a suite at the Ixtapa Palace. We had friends staying in a nearby resort on the water for quite a bit more money--and no suite. Being a 10 minute walk from the beach is the only downside to this resort. The kids enjoyed the pool and waterpark and walked the...

Visited Feb 28 and stayed in a fabulous 2 bedroom villa. Walk to shops, nightlife and the beach. Beach is a 4-5 block walk, however, past shopping, stores and hotels or a $3 cab ride. The units are spacious, clean and service is the best! The resort offers 3 pools, bar, restaurant and the best service staff you'll find anywhere....
