Alex's Bar in Ixtapa, Mexico is THE SPOT to meet up with your friends, slam some Tequila shots, and have a really good time.

wonderful food and at a great price. You can't miss this place. Coldest beer in all of Ixtapa and the staff is hands down the best. They serve food late night and it's wonderful. Home made blue corn tortilla's and good party atmosphere

Blue corn handmade tortillas, were the best! Fun nights. I miss it already. The only thing lacking was one of the waiters just seemed out to lunch and the other guy was always picking up the slack for him. The great atmosphere is unbeatable.
