As the title says...this was our third visit to this resort spanning over 5 years. This time we definitely noticed a change with the hotel. What we mean by this, is the perhaps the management direction which after being there during the weekdays and weekend, I can see why. From Monday to the Friday afternoon, this place is pretty dead,... More

Week stay Feb 05 - 12. Great value for the money spent for this all-inclusive vacation with Sunwing. Rooms clean, food good although selection somewhat limited. Great location to the beach (excellent) & to markets & local restaurants and bars. Must go to Frank's Bar & Grill. No shortage of hot water & pressure in the shower. No in-room fridge... More

Wonderful resort on the Pacific side of Mexico, Buildings are a bit old, but well maintained, ocean view rooms have an awesome view. Food was excellent and service top notch. Lots to do on the Beach in the way of sports and activities. As well as snorkeling, parasailing etc.Fishing at the nearby village was excellent as well.

We arrived early (Check in 3pm) so the room they had for us at that time had 2 Super single beds, we... More

We were reluctant to book here after reading some of the negative reviews. However after just vacationing a month before in Peru followed by the holidays we were looking at going somewhere hot on a low budget. We stayed at the Fontan from Jan. 3-10 and would return in a heartbeat! From the moment we arrived at the hotel to... More

I stayed here with my family after our flight home was cancelled. My expectations were not very high since the airline was putting us up and we had come from our annual trip to a high end resort, also in Ixtapa. The lobby was crowded and loud. Filled with families coming and going from pools people were all over the... More

I’m actually happy to read positive reviews of this property … at one point last Friday (2 Jan 2015) I was starting to feel I was trapped in an alternate and very absurd reality. This was a Gong Show experience that started out bad, didn’t get better and ended bad. I wasn’t impressed, did not enjoy my experience and will... More

I have stayed at the Fontan 3 or 4 times and have never had a complaint, except it can be a little noisy, mostly on the weekends, where it does get busy with Mexican families. It is Mexico, people. The rooms have always been clean, the staff very friendly and well trained, and I have nothing bad to say about... More
