I have stayed at the Krystal a total of six times in Ixtapa....never had a problem that wasn't quickly fixed by telling the maid or the desk staff. Love to run or walk the beautiful long beach, swim the great hotel pool, workout and bicycle Ixtapa and Zihua. I will return...the sooner the better! Also try Bogart's restaurant on the... More

Was a terrible experience. The rooms are dirty, the food is always the same, and not labeled. The restaurant is being over run by birds! Bird crap everywhere. Very run down. We paid for all-inclusive , but went out for supper every night to get some good food! Do have to say the pool staff/bartenders were the BEST! The pool... More

We have been vacationing at the Krystal Ixtapa for 20+ years. This hotel has the best location on the beach. The staff is very good. The owners need to put some money into it, not a lot, just a lot of modest things. Fix the palapas: have adequate number of towels for a beach resort: train the housekeeping staff to... More

We recently stayed at the Krystal in Ixtapa for 2 weeks. We've stayed at this hotel at least 12 or 13 times before, but have concluded that the quality has steadily decreased each of the last 2 years. We're not complainers but this year we had a terrible experience at the Krystal. This is one of the best locations on... More

I don’t recommend the Krystal hotel on Palmar beach to anyone because the staff at this hotel is rude and impolite. We saw an elderly couple checking the premises at the pool being treated with heavy manners just like if they were disturbing teenagers. It’s a total lack of respect for old age. What a shame. As matter of a... More

Just got home from Ixtapa. Me and my husband love the city and the excursions. We went to Linda Playa, and the Xihuacan Ruins and of course, the neighbouring city, Zihuatanejo. In Krystal, there are a lots of local people, usually big families, cute kids, very busy on the weekend. We were on the 6th floor, I love our ocean... More

Spent a week at the Krystal with 4 other women, and unfortunately from experience women alone tend to not get great customer service. The waiters ignored us while waiting to be seated actually had to hunt down a waiter to get us a table and refill our drinks. The bar tenders were much better. I would recommend the Ixtapa for...

This was our first trip to Ixtapa which is a very pretty area, pleasant to walk the sidewalks around the hotel area. Lots of shops and restaurants across the street. Our stay at the Krystal Ixtapa was very different from any other hotel we have stayed at in Mexico. There was no information about the hotel to help guests know... More

Went with my family for a wedding. The staff were very friendly, never had any problems with any of them. The hotel itself is very run down. Our bathroom door was rotten on the bottom from the water from the shower hitting the door. The bathtub was absolutely disgusting !! I know it was old but I had a hard... More
