As a result, I have always had a vacation I expected and enjoyed, and any travel companions did as well. This review is written to be fair to the hotel, as due to weather related missed connections in Canada, Air Canada... More

good Morning Thank you very much for letting us your comments are very important to us, actually part of what you say is true because these services are not we offer. Is very important prior to booking to verify the services that the hotel has. We are a 4 star all inclusive hotel with set times, not 24 hours. but... More

We stayed for the week of Feb 17-24 2013. We first of all upgraded our room to a suite which was great! They have a loft upstairs with another full washroom which was so ideal for my husband and I trying to get ready to go out in the evenings. Honestly I had never heard of Ixtapa before we pulled...

This is our third time at the Fontan and we certainly knew what we would be getting. It's rated 3 stars for a reason so if you're expecting 4 or 5 star, don't stay here.
