I had a great holiday with my family and sister and nephew for sure, seadoing, parasailing (go Periwinkler go) and meeting new friends. The Presidente (in my opinion) needs some MAJOR work to bring it... More

We just returned from a week in Ixtapa at the Presidente. It was EXCELLENT!!! The Presidente is a great place to stay. The Ocean View room is definitely the BEST. Contrary to what others have said - the beds were fine, no mosquitoes, the food was great, etc. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

This was a last minute holiday in fact I call it suicide travel where you book the day before departure and just leave on an adventure. You cannot be fussy, just have your bags packed and be ready to go at all times! I was given three choices Cuba, Dominican Republic or Ixtapa. I understand weather conditions and opted for... More

Overall, It was fabulous but here are my random thoughts & suggestions - First of all, A visit to the massage huts at the very end of the Ixtapa beach (outside of 'Carlos and Charlies') is a must for those that love massages/relaxation- walk down the beach to...
