Mediocre resort with accommodating staff
Tue Mar 13 10:32:46 EDT 2018
First of all I’d like to say that if you come across this being rated as a 4 star, it is not. I would rate it as a 3 star at best. This is our third time to Ixtapa and this was our least favorite resort. I realize that I am in a third world country and do not expect the world, however, my one priority is a decently clean room and I feel that I did receive this at the Tesoro. Upon arriving at the lobby it is quite run down. It is not inviting at all and there are very few chairs in the lobby to just hang out in and have a cocktail. One afternoon, my husband had asked for a rum and coke at the lobby bar and he asked the bartender to fill the glass with ice. The bartender put in 3-4 cubes and my husband again said please fill it up with ice. The bartender pointed at the lobby convenience store motioning for us to go there to buy a bag of ice. This completely turned us off and I said no, we will not go to the store to buy ice. This is an all-inclusive resort and I am not paying for ice for our drinks. We were firm in telling the gentleman to fill up the glass with ice and begrudgingly, he did. Very very poor service, and we never went back there for another drink. Once we got to our room we ended up with a double bed for the two of us. We had phoned the front desk to complain stating that we would like a king or two doubles for my husband and I. (since we weren't staying in this room, we didn't unpack but we did notice that the safe wasn't even bolted down, we could simply pick it up and move it to wherever we wanted) The front desk was very accommodating and the next day we were moved into our new room with two double beds. My main complaint in the room was the teeny tiny shower head. (It worked ok for my husband but a newer updated showerhead might be nice) Being thirsty, I went to grab the ice bucket to fill it up and I don't know when it had been cleaned last but it was filthy. The mini bar fridge was filled daily with bottled water and three different types of pop. Unpacking & hanging up our clothes I asked for a dozen more hangars from the maid and they arrived in 5 minutes however, every hangar was a ridged type hangar and the dirt & grime inside the ridges was a turn off. We had a partial ocean view with the Park Royal hotel next door and while there is a continuous humming from the air conditioners, it wasn’t enough to bother us. Our major complaint and turn off with this hotel is that there is absolutely NO drinking in the pool whatsoever and security is ALWAYS on top of that. We have never encountered this before and just assumed all resorts allowed plastic drinks only but found out differently. That was very disappointing to say the least. We ate at the snack bar twice and always found something to snack on. The beach is beautiful and the waves are fun to play in. There was always service under the palapas on the beach and we had no problem finding a palapa no matter what time of day. This resort is extremely busy on the weekends and geared towards families with small children, so unless you are up very early there is no chance of reserving a lounger with your towel. I cannot comment on the food because we only ate three breakfasts at this resort as we had friends staying at the Holiday Inn and we always met up for lunch and/or supper at our favorite restaurants, The General or Deborah’s Chili Beans. We also went out to Ixtapa Island for the day and also into Zihuatanejo to hang out at the beautiful beaches at Las Gatas, Playa la Ropa and Playa la Madera. Ixtapa is a beautiful place to visit and we will continue to travel there, however, next time we will try a different resort.

Enjoyed It!

We got what we were looking for. Decent price at a decent resort. We went here knowing it wasn't a 4 or 5 star place, but honestly we never stay at 4 or 5 star places. All in all we were happy. I think we would go back again.

numerous problems at this hotel

Sunwing rated this hotel a 4 star its lucky to be a 3 star.normally there is a sunwing representative at hotel not this one.Last day waiting for bus a representative finally came over and asked how was the stay when we all answered this is a 3 star not 4 he never even stayed around.The security guards, one in particular was very rude and hassles the guest.The food was always cold ,a lacarte was a joke.Reviews of hotel say bar fridge in room should say fridge with water and pop.The only thing that made this resort good was the hard working staff that were always freindly. Had no air condition in room for 2 days finally got moved to another room

Would go back!

We paid for a 3 star and that is what it was! The good: The staff is awesome. Many have limited English but many have great English. I used Google translate when necessary. They went above and beyond to help us out and offered great service. The beach is wonderful. We were served on the beach all week. We had an amazing balcony coming our from our room overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was close to walk into town. The rooms are clean and the grounds are immaculately kept. The pool was warm. I know a lot of people complain about the Mexicans at the resort - but we are in Mexico! Do people complain about the amount of Canadians when they travel to places in Canada. NO! It wasn't as busy as people make it out to be...we are beach people so when we wanted to go in the pool many of the locals were inside or elsewhere in the hottest part of the day. I didn't mind the small amount of travellers from other countries! The food was ok at the buffet. Breakfast was our fave meal and the snack bar by the pool was yummy! Order the Spanish coffee at the al a carte! So cool to watch them make it! Head into town and have the table side guac from Generals. Mmmmmm We would completely go back to this hotel!

OK resort

Having read previous reviews I was expecting an unpleasant 2 week vacation. The room we were given was on the 7th floor with full ocean view and balcony. The problem was the noise from ac machines from the next door hotel.At times it drowned out the roar of the ocean. Another problem was the smell of food from the kitchen reaching our balcony and room. The staff is very attentive and took great care of us. The property a bit tired was clean. The lobby is nondescript but with a decent bar at night. The buffet area was hot and very noisy and crowded. We always ate outside . The alacarte was good italian or mexican. The pool was often quite crowded but the water was warm and inviting. Te beach was beautiful with palapas to keep you in the shade. You had to be reserving one by 7am to get a good one. Having spoken to many other guests. We paid for what we got, And yes there were many Mexican families. 80% of all guests. And many many kids.. Would I recommend the Tesoro. Probably not.. The food was just ok . The drinks were the usual all inclusive .. We saved on the price were not disappointed but will go elsewhere next time in Ixtapa
