We had a great week staying at the Barcelo Ixtapa. The beach is beautiful, and we enjoyed some great sunsets over the ocean. The staff was great! They are helpful, friendly, and took great care of us.
The food in the buffets was good, where Francisco always made sure we were well taken care of.
Dinner in the Italian restaurant, La Fontana, was really good, and Jorge provided us with top-notch service.
At the swim-up bar, Ulysses made us the best drinks.
The rooms here were OK, but if you're spending much time in your room, you're missing out. The grounds were beautiful and nicely maintained. The surrounding area is gorgeous, with green hills filled with lush trees. And of course the ocean is fabulous. The water is warm, the beach is nice and sandy, and the rocks off shore, help make it even more beautiful.
We went for a bike ride one morning, and got a nice tour of the hotel zone. The tour included a stop at the dolphinarium before returning to the hotel.
Just down the beach, you can find some good snorkeling near the rocks in front of the Pacifica resort's beach.
The evening shows at the hotel were well-done, and we enjoyed the ones we saw.
All-in-all, this is a great place to relax.More
