Great food and service and so fun to take the Gondala up and down and walk the beach to and from our Hotel on the beach. Went there twice as it was that good.

Over looking Ixtapa bay, this too is a 'must visit'. Book your table to watch the sun set and enjoy a pre-dinner drink whilst studying the menu, which is extensive. The Mahi-Mahi was delicious. We cannot fault El Faro

excellent food and service; a little pricey for the value of the meal; scenic view is amazing; sunset views after mid/late March. Drinks were OK, not great.

Food was very good, service excellent, and ocean view amazing. We stayed at the Pacifica hotel and this was part of our all inclusive package. Worth the visit if you are in Ixtapa.

Take a cab since it is pretty hilly, and there are other roads veering off the main one, so you may end up somewhere else in Pacifica Resort. Do take the gondola down to the beach.

A group of us walked there and back and the other group took a taxi. It is inexpensive to take a cab. We also felt safe on the beach as we were a group. I also would recommend a reservation. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!

No, there is no dress code but once you arrive, I think you will agree that wearing something that makes you feel good and attractive will add to the overall experience. El Faro's is a feel good kind of place. It is my... More
