The word that most comes to my mind when thinking back on my experience at Azul Ixtapa is clean. The staff does a wonderful job of keeping the resort very clean. Housekeeping did an amazing job! Each day they would design fresh, tropical flowers on the bed and in the bathroom. Such a nice touch! The resort is very family friendly, perhaps too much so for a couple with no kids. Kids are everywhere! The all inclusive price is cheap compared to other places that we have traveled. The result is not very much variety and lots of Mexican buffets, but it also gives you the opportunity to get out and explore the tastes of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo! I suggest Villa del Selva in Ixtapa. Wonderful meal and ambience, especially at sunset! With the all inclusive plan you are limited to only three specialty dinners for a one week stay at the resort (something that was not publicized until we arrived at the resort). There are only two choices, a Mediterranean themed restaurant,which was okay, and a waterfront seafood restaurant, which was pretty good. Again, the all inclusive is cheap, so no big deal to go out and grab some tacos on the beach! The timeshare salesmen are not too pushy, but that was a downside to my experience. We already own timeshare so we were not interested in their program, but our guy, Bill, had been so helpful and nice that we agreed to listen to the presentation as a favor for him. He had to have known we were not going to purchase anything. Luckily we did this on our last day, because as we were leaving the resort our friendly Bill was suddenly very rude and unpleasant. Not enough to leave an unpleasant taste, but had this happened earlier in the week, it would have made for an awkward and uneasy resort experience.
