We stayed here over the Christmas and New Year period in Dec 2010. The hotel itself is beautiful, it's set in perfectly manicured gardens and is between Ixtapa and Zihuateanejo. You can easily get a cab from the hotel to either of the towns and both are very different. Ixtapa very family and touristy, and Zihuateanejo more real Mexico. The staff at the hotel, Felix and Ricardo in the Office, Arturo the Bar Manager, Inez the waitress and Cesar the waiter were all so friendly and helpful. The hotel has an amazing pool area and you also have the option of a 10 minute walk or being driven in a golf cart down to the beach area. This is a sectioned off area with umbrella's and beach loungers and waiter service from Cesar. The beach was clean & beautiful and the water warm - heaven. Rooms are huge, and have everything you need and the daily maid service was great, leaving pretty little flower arrangements everyday on the bed. The restaurant at the hotel La Luna de Shiva was excellent, the chef was friendly and the food delicious. The restaurant with the most amazing view over the whole Ixtapa Bay, connected with the hotel called "La Pampa" also had delicious food. Make sure you have a ride on the Gondola down to the beach and back. We took a Catamaran Trip one day from Zihuatanejo (arranged by Felix at the hotel) which was great fun, beautiful scenery, lots of drinks and snacks all included. The Thalasso Spa Couldn't recommend this hotel enough, as our stay was such a wonderful one.
