We spent a week at the end of June/July. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were nice any very large. We used points from Interval International last minute and didn't get a room with much of a view. If we wanted to pay for an upgrade we could , but it was pretty expensive. One thing we... More

My husband and I just returned from 8 days, 7 nights at the beautiful Club Intrawest (now Embarc Resort) in Zihuatanejo. It was truly a trip to remember with beautiful views, excellent accommodations and warm hospitality at every turn. Our trip was booked under Hilton Grand Vacations but is now affiliated with Embarc/Diamond Resorts International. This made no difference whatsoever.... More

My wife and I booked this resort through HGVC last December but it has since been sold to Embarc. it made no difference, though, as we were treated very well. This resort is starting to show signs of age and wear but it is still very clean and well maintained. Even the on-site restaurants have quality food and attention to... More
