We just returned from Ixtapa, after staying here for a week. We vacationed with our friends, who have spent quite a few weeks in the Riviera Maya area. They are convinced the January weather is much better here. Blue skies and high 80's every day! We never wore the light sweaters we took along. We had the deluxe ocean view rooms and they were very nice--just a great view. We walked the beach every day and it was wonderful. I was pleased that the complimentary WIFI worked quite well for me. The Oceana, Bluewater Grill and Da Mario restaurants were excellent. The buffet breakfasts were quite good with variety every day. We were impressed by how hard the staff worked in every area to keep us happy.
We were disappointed that beach chairs were hard to get. Elevators did not work real well. Having fans in the rooms might be helpful, because with the hot sun, it was hard to keep an even temperature. Avoid the "steak and wine" dinner and we wish the kebabs had been prepared before we arrived at the "kebab festival" lunch--they never got cooked to the point we could trust eating them.
Above all, if you have booked with Apple Vacations, do not fall for the "required" meeting the night you arrive. It turns out to be a pressured sales pitch for their version of timeshares. Also, do not fall for the $200 coupon promotion. You are given coupons that will partially apply to wine, massages or dinners. You cannot use them as you wish.
