Originally my boyfriend and I planned on going to Florida for relaxing vacation, until one of our good friends recommended this resort. It was much more relaxing that I could have ever thought. Excellent, hard workers with positive attitudes. The food was really good and we were literally across the street from downtown and all the stores and more restaurant... More

8/2/2014 Ixtapa,.. Ahhhhh,….. Tropical Paradise. We stayed at the El Presidente Intercontinental All-inclusive Resort Hotel for a week and planned for a return by the second day. The unbelievable service began with the Concierge, Jorge Luis Sanchez. No opportunity was missed to share his knowledge of the hotel and local attractions. He made us feel special, welcome and like family.... More

This is my second stay at this hotel and I will never grow tired of this place. Although the building from the outside looks kind of old and outdated don't let yourself be fooled by its appearance, there is more than meets the eye. The service is always friendly and outstanding from everyone, it is hard not to leave a... More

Loved, loved, loved Ixtapa and Zi. I totally understand why everyone keeps going back to these two places!!! We spent two weeks at the Presidente and I would return to this hotel. The number one thing about this resort is the staff, everyone that works at this hotel is friendly and helpful. We thought the food was excellent, no complaints... More

Would have been nice to see a listing of different things the resort does, wasn't really able to find anything like that. Didn't know they have a... More
