This hotel is in general good maybe for a weekend or some nights but this is not a hotel to spend family vacation or to stay for holidays. What we liked: big rooms, very clean, good equiped - at least nothing we missed. The pool is big and perfect for kids of any age. Even they have a nice water... More

The Holiday inn is alway from the other hotels on the strip...about a 5 min walk to the beach,market and restaurants. The hotel staff was great! There is a bell person name(Alfredo) who speaks good english and can help you find your way around town. If your looking for a nice quiet clean hotel...the Holiday inn Ixtapa should be your... More

This hotel was clean, the pool is really nice and it is walking distance to great restaurants and typical mexico shopping. But it is farther to the beach than the website implies...if being close to the beach is important to you (it wasn't for us) I would not recommend this hotel. The staff was not friendly at all, we had... More

This hotel is a block behind the main drag which means it has good access to everything but no sea view. Check in was slowish and the receptionist extremely unsmiling. Some of the rooms have a nice view over palm trees and mountains but mine had a view of the kitchen roof and all the smells that go with it,... More

This hotel is like every other Holiday Inn in many ways - the decor, room furnishings and the same standard you would expect from a Holiday Inn. But it also had a fantastic pool and sunbathing area, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful, even bringing us drinks to our sun loungers. The food was good, nothing special, but... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this Holiday Inn. It is a very short walk to markets and restaurants, about 5 minutes. Another couple of minutes and you are on the beach whether you slip through one of the hotels like the Barcelo or use the public entrance to the left of the Barcelo. There is an OXXO convenience...

This is the second time I stay here and I'm very satisfied with the service and the attention I received from the staff. The Front Desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to book my next trip in this Property.

This is a great hotel and offers a real "Mexico Holiday" experience. The rooms are not fancy, but clean, neat and air conditioned. It's every thing you'd expect in a Holiday Inn. They have a complimentary business center and a really nice pool with swim up bar and pool service. There are not many Americans at this hotel. They are... More

I had seen mostly mediocre reviews (and one really sour one) before arriving. My experience in Ixtapa was one of the best holidays I've had in the last few years. Here's why... This hotel isn't right on the beach, but that's accessible a number of ways (Ixtapa is more of a commercial loop than a town) and you're not paying... More

Spent a very nice 4 day vacation here following a business trip to Mexico. Hotel is fairly new, clean, staff seemed pretty friendly, English limited but enough to get by. Nice pool, rooms OK. 2 blocks from beach, but we had a car, so no problem. Rates are lower because not waterfront (we paid $81/night US, but that might have... More
