Stayed @ InterContinental Presidente the week of Valentines & thought it was an amazing value! Prior to arriving, we booked one of the less expensive rooms with an "oceanview". When we arrived, we found that it was in the tower (14th floor) so we quickly upgraded for WAY cheaper than booking it in advance. Only paid $120 more total for...

Firstly, I can't imagine anyone having a bad time at the InterContinental Presidente. From the moment we arrived (which was 2am) we were greeted with friendly and accommodating service. Our initial bellman, Teodoro, became the first of many friends we made with the staff of this hotel. From Lucas the bartender to Addie and Kali at the recreation desk, the...

We arrived on February 11, 2009 to a beautiful day in Zihua -85 degrees and sunny. It was like that all week. We have been to Ixtapa several times before, but this was the first time at the Presidente. Check in went quickly and very smooth. We stayed on the 17th floor in the tower with an excellent ocean view...

This very long and detailed review was VERY WELCOMED. It is always gratifying to find comments posted in a very positive way. In this day and age it is my opinion that folks should look to the positive...and put aside negativity. I thank this Reviewer for his posting and look forward to his next visit with us.

I ended up at the Intercontinental as a fluke (problems with my reservation at another hotel). I booked the room through Expedia on the day of my arrival, a wopping $400 a night. The first room the hotel showed me was filthy. There was food on the floor, and the bathroom was covered with mold and mildew. The second room...

This was our 4th stay, however we had 40 people (including children) in our group this time. Previous visits were just with several couples.
