“3 day stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Hotel stuff was excellent, anything outside the rooms was A+ food, pool, view, and room service. Room was below 2stars rating a/c not working properly, I requested to change my room, and they showed my at least 3 more rooms, but all rooms had the same problem. Not a nice problem to deal with in hot and humid weather. One more thing I hated that I was sent to a timeshares like presentation now they are calling it (vacational nights or noches vacacionales) so wrong when people is trying to relax and just have fun with their family. One thousand thanks to all the hotel stuff for their excellent service. (to the manager please address this problem so it will match your awesome people)

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for taking your time to post your comments in TA. Your feedback is very important for us and helps us to improve our service.

I am very happy to hear you enjoy the hotel with your family. Our staff is very focus on the service and always try to make you feel “home”. In reference of the food, our Chef prepares his menus to give to our guest a sample of the typical Mexican food and more especially from Guerrero. And our variety of buffet and a la carte restaurant, give you the opportunity to taste different cuisine (French, Italian, Sushi).

I am very surprise about your comment about the A/C, because usually our rooms have a good temperature for this latitude and my chief engineer did not report any problem with the A/C during your stay. And I imagine this inconvenient make you rating the room 2 stars because our rooms have all the facilities of 5 stars: 60m2, flat screen TVs, Safe deposit, duvet, iron board, etc…

In reference to the Club, after the check-in they give you all the information about the hotel´s facilities, the restaurant schedule, etc… And they will invite you to their presentation, but you are free to accept or not to assist.

Thank you again for your comments and I promise you that for your next stay you will not have any complain about the A/C or the Club.

Best regards,

SMC

I stayed at this hotel with 20 other coworkers for a management retreat. All of us work in hotels and know the importance of customer service and a comfortable and clean stay. This exceeded my expectations by far! All of the staff was incredibly courteous from the front desk to the maid to the concierge. We were always greated with a big smile and asking us what we were doing for the day and if they could help with anything. We knew the staff by name and they knew us by name! If I could take all of the staff and bring them back to my hotel I would! Each and every staff member was wonderful!

Room Tip: The presidential suite was beyond amazing so if you can splurge for it, its worth it!

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking your time to post your comments in TripAdvisor. I am glad that you enjoy our customer service. Our staff is very focused on the service because we know that hospitality is synonym of “service” and a smile can make your day!!!

And if you take some staff from the Hotel, I would be very proud and sad at the same time because you will take with you part of the InterContinental Presidente Ixtapa Family.

Thank you again for you feedback and I hope to see you soon.

Best regards,

SMC

We had a terrible experience and should have written in sooner. They moved us 3 times. The first room had blood in the sink, had not been cleaned and had horrible black mold everywhere. The second room, same thing but it was late so my husband stayed on a cot and my daughter and I slept in the gross bed. The next day after hours of complaining they moved us to a balcony room - not much better and still horrible mold. We ended up with a bacterial infection in our stomaches from the food as well that took 3 months to recover from. Do not stay here! They didn't help us at all and then wanted to charge us for the upgraded room.

The buffet always was poorly organized as no one obey the line to get food and food was not always maintain nice looking. My room had the cable disconnected call front desk for service end up fixing it myself there never a follow up call on that as if they just blow the problem away. Last night power was out and no one was good to let us know what was the problem Never got an apologie for the inconvenience The hotel is just ok but nowhere close to 5 star

Fantastic been here twice now. Feb 2010, Feb 2012 and going back Feb, 2013 just booked 12 nights 13 day trip. Took 10 friends with us this last year they loved it. Staff fantastic, Carmen is the best, Jesus is wonderful, Jorge is great!!! We had a small problem with Orbitz with whom we booked through no fault of the hotels at all. The hotel worked with us pretty well on it. Some of us girls toook a tour to the tile factory, coconut platation and to Petatzlan (spelling??) it was wonderful and felt perfectly safe. The church there is gorgeous, we will be going back there again on 2013 trip to see more of it and spend more time there our tour guide was great. The hotel is right on the beach, fantastic, the food is good but can get to be repetitive, try to mix it up. Would love to see more seafood choices being we are at the ocean. But overall a wonderful, fantastic trip and can't wait for 6 of us to get there this coming year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for the superior pool view rooms behind the lobby, no tower, call the hotel and make sure your r...

It's not the first time i went there, and i did return because the services... Sea Front Rooms are great, pool is nice and location is perfect! The best thing i can tell you about my customer experience is the proffessionnal service of the concierge! His name is Jorge, and day after day, he's there to answer any question or help you if you need something!

This is an excellent cost-value resort, the hotel facility is very good but please do not make the mistake to expect someting compared with a big city Presidente Intercontinental hotel, if you want to have the most luxury room you may need to book it with the hotel directly and not to the low rate you may get through this site that are mostly the standard rooms. The food was very good in quality and taste.

Room Tip: Pool rooms are noisy
