We bought a time share in this hotel and it happens that the show room is the ONLY room that has been remodeled. All the rest of the rooms are old and with little maintenance. The rest of the hotel is quite nice and the pools are great for kids. Another thing is that food is forbidden at the pool... More

We had a good time at the Azul, with one huge deal breaking exception. Ixtapa had a lot of rain before our arrival causing a lot of run off from a river down the beach. For a week the beach was completely unusable, like swimming in coffee grounds. As a result the pools were extremely busy. There is a kids... More

Let's start by saying that we never heard of Ixtapa before booking this trip! All we wanted to do is get away from the freezing cold weather and find a warm, family friendly, safe beach resort. I have to say all this was found at the Azul. The service, food and location are all excellent. We had a room at... More

We stay in room 1708. First the room was awesome and had a spacious balcony with a clear ocean view. The air condition was so cold, sometimes we had to turn it off. This was another great surprise. The staff was amazing and the food was so-so. The Italian restaurant was very very good. Although we didn't participate in the... More

We travelled here in Feb 2014. This is the best of Mexico. There are no timeshare people in the airport. No greedy porters fighting for your luggage. No haggling for taxi fares.(these are preset by the government and it is law)No timeshare at the hotel. It was amazing!!!! You could let your guard down. The bus trip from the airport... More

Booked through Delta Vacation. Hotel was clean, staff was nice, food was good - but make reservations the day you arrive for specialty restaurants (Oyster Bar, etc..) drinks were wonderful!! Take advantage of the activities, there are many. Getting to town is easy by bus or cab. We had fun shopping in Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa … though we ended up... More

Overall, one of the best resorts we have been to. Ideal for over age 60. Great for rest and relaxation. Only down side is the beach area. Super clean pool areas and poolside bathrooms. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Beautiful large suites with large balconies overlooking ocean. Food was average but did find it had it had more spice.... More

I was eyeing up this resort for two years. I have a 3 year old and was looking for a family friendly resort. Gonna make this review as simple as possible. It was a last minute decision to go on a short holiday for a week with my friend and 3 year old son. This resort is great for kids.... More
