I went on a trip with my school's Spanish trip and I absolutely had a ball!!! We stayed on the beach at this hotel for three nights and I didn't want to leave... I wanted at least another week. The staff was awesome!! They were always making sure everyone was having a great time by providing activities and they kept everything so clean and tidy. The food was awesome and it was there at our convenience(our favorites were the cakes!) The view was spectacular from all areas of the hotel. I would recommend this particular hotel for anyone who spends minimal time in their rooms... the beds were a little tiny but they were okay. Overall this hotel was a great exerience!! And I must say... the fun coordinators are quite cute!!! :)

This hotel was great for the price we paid. The staff was friendly and helpful, always prompt with anything. The beach was beautiful, raked every night. The sun was hot. We certainly needed and wanted another week. The only bad thing was the food. We were AI and the food was recycled over and over. Example... Sunday - pork chops.... Monday - cheesy pork chops... Tuesday - Pork stew with cheese. There was only 3 nights of our seven that the grill was on and you could get fresh fish. The breakfasts had a lot of variety but the taste was.... not anything I have ever tasted. They did have fresh fruit but it sat out from morning till night. Kind of gross. I was happy to have lost those extra 5 Lbs. though! The drinks were amazing on the otherhand. NOT watered down and they used a lot of interesting flavors. Try the tequilla punch! We didn't find this until our last day but if you come off the beach onto the resort take an immediate left and there is a hot dog, hamburger, and french fry stand. The fries were awesome! This hotel is not for the picky, anal retentive types. It is for people who want to go to Mexico and relax in the sun without a care.

Top Local Tips for Ixtapa Zihuatanejo

Taxi Fares We paid $32 USD to get from the airport to the hotel in Ixtapa, and were pushed a lot of 'extras' like tours of other properties etc... This price was posted, so I didn't feel ripped off... but strangely paid only $15 from Ixtapa to the airport on the way back. It is worth pushing through the crowds in the airport to ask a driver directly what he'll charge you -- just be sure you agree before you get in :-)

A change of pace Margaritas at El Arbolito, cervesas on the deck at Carlos and Charlies on the beach and the seafood platter at Franks!

Health and safety. At the Fontan, you are safe. There is no danger walking around at night time in front of the beach. There are security guards, and also you can take walks at night to the mercado in front of the Barcelo Hotel and there are two nice people selling and working hard. Tito and Jesus If you go there Say HI (HOLA) Tito and HOLA Jesus de Luc and Lucie de Canada.
