My fiance and I stayed at the Presidente from 10/30-11/05/04 with some friends and had a wonderful time. The staff can't really do enough for you so I really don't understand when some people say the staff was unfriendly. If you are nice to them and show your appreciation for what they do then you will make fast friends there.... More

We stayed at the Presidente from 10/09/2004 thru 10/16/2004. Our expectations were very high because we stayed at the Presiedente in Puerto Vallarta prior (excellent stay) and we expected Ixtapa to be the same. When we checked in we asked for a room upgrade (we are Presidente priority club members) the man at the front desk told us it was... More

We just returned from the Presidente July24-28. I thought the Hotel and beach was very pretty, the staff very friendly, BUT the food was not so good, the hamburger's were great. We have stayed at other AI resort's in Mexico and I could not believe you had to pay for room service to get bottled water and there are no... More

We were at the Presidente June 5-12 and were pleasantly surprised. After reading several of the negative reviews I was very concerned. It was the first time that we had stayed at an all inclusive and I must say, it is easy. The hotel is like most of the others in Mexico, unless you are at the Ritz. It is... More

The food was bad, and drinks were prepared with the cheapest liquours . Rooms are average but they need major work. The hotel is too... More

After reading some of the negative reviews recently we were a little hesitant about our vacation. However, we loved the Presidente. My husband, myself, and our three children were there from April 3-April 10, 2004 and had a wonderful time. We thought the staff was extremely warm and friendly. The service was excellent, the food was great for breakfast, good... More

Ixtapa is beautiful place to go on vacation. I agree with the last few reviewers that raved about what a great place the Presidente Intercontinental is. The pool, grounds and beach are absolutely spectacular. The food is above average and has alot to choose from. The hotel staff go above and beyond to make sure your holiday is an enjoyable... More
