We just returned. We felt totally safe on the premises as well as in Ixtapa, The weather was perfect, mid 80s, the beach is certified by the govt. and also perfection . The resort was busy, immaculate, the room cool and comfortable, pristine. Every person who worked there was friendly , polite, knowledgeable, efficient. Their English was much better than our poor Spanish. We do not travel expecting to have locals speak English, but it did make everything easy . They were there right away with any concern. Dumb ones on our part, i.e. couldn't figure out how to drain the sink . A person was there in two minutes, just had to tap the drain plug, a new style for us. We all had a great laugh.We read a review complaining about theft of money from a guest room , I would guess a rare occurrence. There is a safe in each room , common sense, they should have used it. We had no sense of unease about leaving things anywhere. The place has been remodeled, and they are very proud of how it looks. They should be. Decor is cool blues, creams, white, marble. The pools are huge. Breakfast is amazing, the dinner restaurants certainly offer something for every one. The bars are busy ,the bar tenders are friendly and polite. We saw very few who over indulged, so even though the drinks are free and excellent, it was still family friendly. There are time share sellers available, they were not intrusive. Since we were not interested, we just politely said ," No thank you, " the first time we were approached, the rest of the vacation we were left alone. The only down side was the lack of courtesy by some patrons who didn't honor the dress code ( which is very reasonable and makes for a respectful atmosphere in the lobby etc.) and the silly race to claim a lounge by the pool. We observed the poor manners, a towel would be placed at 7 am, the person often didn't show up until one or two , keeping it from others. Selfish. Plus the lack of courtesy of removing the towel when done, again keeping the lounge from others. We used the lounges on the beach , no towel monkey business, much more space and fun. I can sit by a pool anywhere , but not the warm Pacific . This may not be the most elaborate, or expensive resort in Ixtapa, but you certainly have everything you need, in a warm inviting atmosphere, with a million dollar view right in front of you . One thing, it seemed busier than many of the other hotels along the beach, an indication people know a good value when they see it. Envy those of you who are planning your stay . You will have a memorable vacation. Adios ...
