Nice place

I was at the hotel late Jan. to early Feb. I could always find a place on the beach or at the pool. One rule I don't agree with is that if you go down early and throw a towel on a chair it saves it tell the person shows up. Which could be 10-11 am. The hotel staff was helpful and kept my room nice and clean. I never even saw them in 8 days. If you need any help on directions talk to the guy's out front downstairs. DON'T USE THE PHONES!!! I had a 200.00(US) bill for a 1 hour call to the states. Local calls are like 15.00(US). The sound of the waves crashing helped me to sleep each night...along with a small amount of 'Don Julio'.

Having visited the Dorado nearly every year since 1987 were have never been disappointed until 2005. We found the grounds,room & hallways, pool & area, outdoor restaurants not well maintained, especially the pool & area - simply dirty. But the worst was the Front Desk customer service (an oxymoron). When questioning our final bill there was strong & rude reluctancy to remove overcharges (not our room number, name or signature on ticket) The front desk nazi refused to remove an overcharge (approx. US $6.00) small overcharge but the manner we were treated was unbelievable! Received the rudest treatment from front desk staff. Our friends who traveled with us were treated worst! Next return visit to Ixtapa we'll stay at the Krystal or other hotel. Never again the Dorado.
A great safe and fun place

This hotel was great! If you are looking for a great safe and fun place to take your family... This is it! They have multiple daily activities for adults & kids. Due to all the family activity, I missed my kids more than ever on this trip and wished I had brought them with. Service is wonderful, the hotel is very clean, and you are in the middle of pretty much everything. We heard from a lot of people that the other hotels they stayed at said they had activities at the hotel and didn't have any at all.

Get up early to get your chair by the pool. We went down every morning at 6:00 am. You can leave your towel or books on your chair and believe it or not they will not be touched or moved all day... We put our towels down at 6:00am and came down to the pool around 10:00. People and staff are very respectful. "

Top Local Tips for Ixtapa Zihuatanejo

Tip on tips Make sure you have correct amount for the taxis, with some small change for the tip. None of the taxi drivers could break large bills - they received quite good tips that way!

What to bring and not bring Bring some binoculars for the balcony of your room, a couple of umbrellas in season. do not bring beach towels....they do a nice job providing dry towels as needed. it's hot which why i went there, you can get by with very little clothing, i wore sandals the whole time. travel light you will be glad you did in customs.

Don't miss Playa la Ropa Most folks go to the main part of Zihua, and call it a vacation. If you do, then you're missing out on a great day of sun and food to be had at Playa la Ropa. It's only a coupe of dollars more by taxi from Ixtapa, and well worth the extra ten minutes it takes to get there. Palapa restaurants stretch for a mile down a wide sandy beach. Plenty of beach activities, or just hang out with a beer and get a tan.
