It's an upscale restaurant that has a nice view but the service is a bit slow. You will pay for the view so don't expect a great meal for the cost

Over looking Ixtapa bay, this too is a 'must visit'. Book your table to watch the sun set and enjoy a pre-dinner drink whilst studying the menu, which is extensive. The Mahi-Mahi was delicious. We cannot fault El Faro

Take a cab since it is pretty hilly, and there are other roads veering off the main one, so you may end up somewhere else in Pacifica Resort. Do take the gondola down to the beach.

A group of us walked there and back and the other group took a taxi. It is inexpensive to take a cab. We also felt safe on the beach as we were a group. I also would recommend a reservation. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
