Just like the review stated before me. IF you like to share your resort vacation with hundreds of Federal Police then this is the place. We felt completely unwelcome at this resort. THis resort caters to the Federals only. Restaurant is open for them only. Swim up bar closed, the water park was closed. The staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful. The rooms were old and worn down. No hot water. Nothing seemed to work. We spent majority of our time off the resort. Ixtapa itself is a wonderful place, but just do not stay at this resort. We called RCI and complained and they did compensate us by giving us another week. Thank God there was plenty of other things to do off the resort. Ixtapa has great restaurants, and shopping and lots of activities. We booked several activities through Ixtapa Holidays. Carlos was wonderful and very accomodating. Go to Las Gatas if you can. Beautiful beach. Walk all the way down to the end of the beach and stop at Otilia's. Ask for Franco. The staff there was wonderful and we had a blast. We went over there twice during our stay and Franco just took really good care of us. We will be going back to Ixtapa our next trip, but we will never stay at the Ixtapa Palace again.
