After experiencing Huatulco in 2012, we wanted to explore something different but still in Mexico.
We booked a 7-day stay at the all-inclusive Tesoro Resort in Ixtapa. Unfortunately our room was located near the building AC unit creating disturbing noise, day and night. The room had also
a permanent smell of moisture. I was stupid not to ask for a room change..but still!!
Dining facilities were average, the buffet style food was mostly over-cooked. We also tried the a la carte restaurant which was a nice experience, eating under the stars.
The swimming pool is rather small for such a big resort. It was mostly crowded with noisy kids. The fitness room was in a poor shape with Equipment to be repaired.
The best part of our vacation was the huge beach, ideal for our early morning run and walks. There were also massage huts on the beach where you could get pampered for 15$ an hour.
In April the sea was too rough to swim in. The nearby town Zihuatanejo is the real Mexico featuring a lovely bay, interesting restaurants and shops. All in all a great destination if you are in the right hotel.
