The food is delicious, by far the best I've had in Ixtapa. The service is really good and there's always someone there to serve you. Music and drinks are always available and safety first seems to be their number one rule, aside from fun of course.

Stayed here Feb. 2016. Room was nice. Food was better than a lot of Mexican all inclusive deals. Seems like breakfast was the best of the three meals. Don't drink so can not comment on the booze. Nice pool and beach. Like all pools you have to reserve your place in the a.m. Everyone will say this is not allow,... More

Great place to stay. Had to get used to wearing shirts with sleeves whenever you were in a restaurant, dining room or the poolside café. Had to upgrade to get a good view of the ocean, otherwise it was looking at the road and above the theatre.Great beach for swimming and snorkeling.

Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of April 2016. Loved the location of this resort and Ocean Views from the club premium rooms. Loved the club premium lounge and ocean view rooms. The food and service was great! The Beach is amazing and I strongly recommend going for a morning walk along it! I look forward to returning!
