Stayed here Jan.2014 and Jan2015. both for 2 weeks. If you have to have a great beach, this is not the place for you...but just 7 minutes down the beach, is the sister resort with a great beach( You can use it! Rooms were some of the nicest we have stayed at in Mexico. The view from the balcony was just breathtaking. Food was all very good , staff very helpful and almost all spoke English or atleast enough to answer your question. Ixtapa itself was just a 10 minute bus ride(1 America Dollar) The bus stop is just out front. Zihuatanejo is about 30 minutes.again bu stop right out fron. Buses are so easy to use, really!) Fun places.. Both have good shopping and restaurants. Evening shows were really colourful and I learned alot about Mexician History, music and dance.
I would definately go back. Just loved place, people and felt completely safe. one of the best things is that the airport is about 40 minutes from hotel. I will be back~!SOON

Had a relaxing week. Great views, good food for an AI. Really nice rooms and wonderful people. Easy access to Isla Ixtapa which offered decent snorkeling. Pretty good bargain for the package we got with non stop flights from Phoenix. Lack of a true onsite beach was not as much of an issue as I thought it would be.

This is a remarkably beautiful hotel - The view from the room (we were on the 20th floor) is the most incredible view I have ever had. Ixtapa Island on the ocean horizon, the remarkable sunsets, the scenery is magnificent. The rooms have double sliding doors that open onto a balcony, it?s quite extravagant, and the view out those doors is nothing short of spectacular.
The Bartenders along the pool are fun and friendly and take pride in the quality of drinks they make. Very good service.
The resort next door is connected, a beautiful rustic boardwalk takes you along the beach to the other hotel (this boardwalk is illuminated at night). You can access restaurants (buffet's and a la carte's) at both hotels - which was nice.
The resort is very family friendly - lots of lifeguards on duty.
The only reason I gave this hotel a ?very good? rather than an ?excellent? was the Food selection could be a bit limited at times, the buffet would best be described as "good." The a la carte restaurants were also good. I would certainly not complain about the food nor the restaurants, but compared to most other hotels of similar star ratings I have stayed at, the food venues in this hotel would not rate very high.
I could write a thesis on the horrible experience we had with SunWing vacations ? we ended up missing out on about 2 days of our vacation as a result of SunWing vacations error ? which really soured the entire holiday. However, the friendly staff, great bar tenders, awesome infinity pool, gorgeous sunsets, and sparkling clean resort allowed us to still enjoy what was left of our vacation. Also, we knew we were not alone when everyone who booked through SunWing Vacations at the hotel was exchanging SunWing horror stories.
They take room cleanliness very seriously at this resort, and the staff are very attentive. We received a room clean every day, turn down service every day, and the bar fridge stocked every day. Very impressive. At one point we noticed out room bar fridge seemed to have stopped working. We mentioned it to the front desk. A few hours later, when we returned to our room ? the bar fridge had been fixed and was working again.
I would stay at the hotel again.
Lovely All inclusive - finally good food!

We arrived late at night and couldn't see the wonderful place until morning. Our room as in all faced a magnificent view of the ocean and overlooked the property. Multiple levels provided many choices of where to sit for the day. I usually don't care for all inclusive food fare but this place had three different restaurants all with fresh choices that would please anyone, but the big food deal was that with our weeks reservation they included 3 dinners in their exclusive dining places and the one in the hotel proper area was without a doubt 5 star quality, we even called the chef out to commend him on both the taste and presentation. All kinds of things to do for all ages. We loved the short walk down the beach to the boats that took you across to an island where we spent the day ($4 round trip). We brought a cooler but there was very good service there for drinks and light lunch. Also down the beach(5 min) was a wildlife sanctuary which houses some of the largest crocodiles and iguanas we've seen, plus lots of birds. The walk between the conference center and the grand was short and we enjoyed the extravaganza show although this was the only time we didn't care for the food (cafeteria style for 500 people).
I even had attended Zumba classes and painted my own ceramic keepsake.
Rooms were clean, comfortable and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. We even took the bus into town and enjoyed the shopping. We'll go back again!

I was staying with friends at the Azul Ixtapa and we took a tour of the Grand and choose to upgrade halfway through. This resort is beautiful! The pools, grounds, spa, views are all incredibly amazing. But there are some pros and cons to consider.
Pros: Gorgeous pools including an infinity pool with a grotto bar. The servers around the pool area are extremely friendly and polite and will never leave you wanting for a drink. The pools are beautiful with jacuzzis in every room. The wifi and food at this hotel are better than at the Azul Ixtapa. The common areas are air conditioned. Nicer game room/dance lounge than at Azul Ixtapa. Private cabanas and more shade by the pools. Offer adult only pool and jacuzzi area.
Cons: About half of the staff my friends and I encountered were not as courteous as everyone we encountered at Azul Ixtapa, particularly the reception and security. They turn their nose up at you or ask you questions if you have a provisional wristband which means you didn't purchase the all inclusive that day. The linens were rough and scratchy. The pool area, which is the major draw, is not open late. The grotto bar did not have a bartender while we were there even though the reception claimed the hotel was fully booked. You're further removed from the beach activities at Azul Ixtapa, though you are invited to walk. They offered no shows, we had to walk to Azul Ixtapa for the shows. Lack of bathroom privacy in rooms.
