This was our first time staying at Villa Mexicana. We have stayed in Ixtapa at the Barcelo about 18 times. We could have stayed there for the exact cost of Villa Mexicana but with the Barcelo being an ALL Inclusive package. Friends booked at the Villa so we thought we would join them.
Our friends package included drinks and breakfast. Thought our package included the same but once we checked in we found out it only included the drinks. The drinks; Very little "free" selection which only included the basics. Canned Beer cost $3.00 US and a White Russian was $6.00 US with the peso being 17 at the time we were there. One evening I asked for a cup of coffee. I was told there was a charge for that also so I declined.
Food and Drinks at Restaurant Mary and Elvira (located on each side of the Villa along the beach) were half the price and very good! Both served top shelf liquor to!
We stayed in room 1503. It was clean. Our shower had good pressure but we never had hot or even warm water for showering. Maintenance was called but it was not fixed during our 1 week stay. We were not offered to switch to another room either.
The pool was relaxing and the grounds of the Resort were well kept
Loved Playa La Ropa Beach, the massages were amazing!More
