Winter vacation 2019
We were lucky enough to go to Ixtapa in February 2019 and again in March. After much research through Trip Advisor, we settled on the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn was a great choice. The first trip, we stayed in the main building on the main floor next to the kiddie pool Although it sounds loud, it was actually really great. The pool was very quiet from 8 pm to 8 am so the room was nice and secluded. The room was a little in need of an update, but was still clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Being next to the pool, we were able to clearly hear the ocean waves in our room. On our second trip, we were in the tower on the 10th floor. That room was much more up to date and extremely comfortable. When given a choice, I would recommend staying in the tower only because it is newer. The food and drinks were good and the service was fantastic. The Breakfast buffet was very good, especially the egg station. The lunch served at the beach bar was lovely and had amazing service. Dinner in February was fine, but we did find the food and variety was much better in March. Probably because it was closer to spring break. The resort also has a turtle egg hatchery and we were lucky enough in February to be there for a large hatching. The location of the hotel in town is perfect. It is in the middle of the hotel strip and is right across the street from the large market place, restaurants and banks. In addition, Ixtapa has an incredible biking/walking path that runs from Playa Linda all the way to the other end of town. It is incredible safe and pedestrian friendly. The town does not really have a grocery store or bodega. However, the public transit system is cheap and convenient and will take you into Zihuatanejo where there is a Mega and a Bodega to get any items you may need. Zihuatanejo is a busy city and has a number of great beaches and pier. Overall, we loved the Holiday Inn for its service, rooms, resort size, beach, food and the incredible staff. We enjoyed Ixtapa immensely and Zihuatanejo was a good city but is a typically busy city. We will definitely be back to the Holiday Inn Ixapa....again.
Another Great Stay At The Holiday Inn
Our stay for the most part was great, 2 nights the air conditioner wasn't working properly but they got it fixed. Our room was nice, everything worked and the maids kept it very clean. The food was tasty and fresh, kinda repetitive but good. The beach is one of the nicest one I've been at, it's wide and flat. The water can be unpredictable so we did a lot of relaxing under the palapas and had a drink. They have amazing guys bringing you drinks on the beach. The weather is always awesome, we just enjoyed our time so much and will definitely be back. We had a photo shoot done by the photographer on site. his name is Julio, he did and amazing job!! Thank you so much to all the staff who work so hard at making our stay so enjoyable.
Holiday Inn Ixtapa Rocks
We were a family of 7 - with 5 adults and two pre teens. We all had the most amazing vacation at the Holiday Inn Ixtapa. We traveled with Sunwing and had excellent flight times and all ran ON time- in fact we left early. We were so pleased with our room - we were in the little bunglows and facing the garden and front entrance. The room was perfect and spacious for 2. The bathroom had a huge walk in shower - lots of HOT water - really nice towels and toiletries. Enough drawers and cupboards and hangars for both our clothes. The KING bed was so comfortable with really nice linens-changed daily- a big difference from the Beds in Cuba (Ouch). I was thrilled we had very restful sleeps. One night was a bit loud with music...but there was a celebration outside..it ended soon enough. The rooms were cleaned daily and they were pretty spotless. Its an old complex but better than I expected, really well run. I cannot say enough about the staff there. They are the most friendly people, and so attentive its almost embarrassing. If you even glanced at a waiter he was there at your table. Premium service. We just loved the food. So much Original cuisine to choose from. I ate as authentic as I could every day. The fruit was glorious, great bread and pretty good wine. The drinks were very good. The resort seemed smaller than I thought and was not too busy, more busy on the weekend, obviously a favorite of locals too. Never had trouble finding a pool chair or a beach chair. They supplied Massive Fluffy beach towels, and if I had one complaint..it would be the pool chairs... I dislike the ones that are at this resort. They are the hammock style-I find you cannot sit comfortably in them. But that is my only complaint. The beaches are naturally very clean-no seaweed or debris and the water in April was very warm. Big waves all the time...so was very much enjoyed by our family. Except for the 2 pounds of sand in your pants.. The sea was gorgeous. Not one drop of rain nor one cloud interfered with this vacation. Literally across the street was a huge market with restaurants, shops, Ice Cream. Also two bank machines very close to the resort one HSBC and one other. The sidewalks and streets are very clean and easy to walk, with great bike paths in the middle. I wish I had rented a bike. All in all we highly recommend this resort - Its perfectly situated and the beach was amazing, but mostly I must say the Mexican people are really lovely (Like Canadians) and the staff at this resort went above and beyond to make our vacation very fun and special. I will BE BACK VERY SOON
Wonderful staff. Fantastic location. Quiet beach.
My boyfriend and I went to get away from the rain. I was able to book a perfect room thanks to Alajandra. The reservation manager. We also booked a private tour of the ruins and a beach lunch through guest services men. Gerardo and Victor. We were really pleased with it all. We will come back next year
Not a 4 star resort
This resort needs upgrades. The buffet tastes good but has very limited selection. Fiesta night, Friday, is great though. Our first room balcony was too small to sit on and face the ocean as it only had room for the chair. And it smelled of mildew terribly. We requested a second room and the balcony was right on the ocean and our king bed very comfortable. But for 3 nights we had a lot of trouble with the ac, which was finally fixed day 4. Ixtapa is HOT. The two pools are very nice, and I can’t say enough about the staff. From the front desk to the repairmen to the beach bar and restaurant staff as housekeepers etc, they were all beyond excellent trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible. But truly, this is a 2-3 star resort simply because of the hotel itself.
