Food was delicious with many healthy choices as well. We went there with our toddler and had no trouble keeping busy or relaxing. Ocean beach is clean and picturesque. Rooms are comfortable but consider upgrading from standard as you get more room and amenities.

We have stayed here for 16 years and enjoy the peace and quiet. The staff are wonderful and the feel of the Palace is more like staying in a private condo than a hotel. The rooms and grounds are clean and it is nice having a kitchenette. Restaurants, beach, and shopping are all within walking distance. The Palace is right... More

Please read the entire review before you make up your mind. Ixtapa Palace is a clean place, that is adequately furnished with a bed, couch, table, kitchenette, A/C and a bathroom. The rooms are kept in good shape, and It is NOT infested with cockroaches or termites like some of the places in Zihua. It has 3 pools on site,... More

I have stayed here before in 2002 and had a better time January 2011. Not many Americans at this place which had Mexican families and has a Mexico feel. Away from the beach front madness. Clean/ cool pools with good pool bar drink service by a friendly man. Staff was friendly and helpful. Don't expect room maintenance repairs although our... More

Just like the review stated before me. IF you like to share your resort vacation with hundreds of Federal Police then this is the place. We felt completely unwelcome at this resort. THis resort caters to the Federals only. Restaurant is open for them only. Swim up bar closed, the water park was closed. The staff was very unfriendly and... More

This is not a bad hotel but is not what I expected for the money. Is not located on the beach, you have to walk some blocks to get to a crowded public beach. I must say is one of the worst locations on the hotel zone because of that, though is close to some nice restaurants. The hotel have... More
