Great beach and close to condo. Plenty of eateries to choose from. Local vendors with the items for purchase are pleasant and non aggressive.

We love this beach. Lots of places to eat like our favorite La Perla, Paty's and Rossy. Lots of beach toys. The beach is great.

We were staying in a hotel above the Playa de la Ropa and it's a very nice beach. The surf is reasonably calm, thanks to it being in a bay, though the water's a little green. The hotel provided palapas on the beach so that was fine. It wasn't crazily crowded even though this was Easter weekend. Negotiating for speedboat... More

Although it is a little out of town and a bit of a drive up the mountain to get down to the beach it is well worth it! We couldn't believe how beautiful this beach was compared to our area over by the azul ixtapa. Water is so blue and clear, the beach is so big with beautiful sand, and... More

The beach is good so is the food and drinks. Everything seemed to be clean. You can stay as long as you like until the water taxis shut down😎😜

We were staying in Ixtapa where the waves were too huge for swimming so we went to Playa la Ropa for lunch and a swim. Absolutely beautiful beach for walking & swimming. Not too busy at all. Friendly people. Very expensive place to lunch.

The sand is nice and white and you can walk for a long ways. There are a lot of activities on this beach such as seadoos, paddle boards, parachutes etc. You can just pick a restaurant to sit at and use their beach chairs all day as long as you order something, even just pop. Its not great for swimming... More
