This review is going to be detailed and positive. We stayed at Club Intrawest Zihuatanejo Jan. 19, 2014- Jan. 24, 2014. It was the most amazing resort we have ever visited. We have traveled throughout the Caribbean, Hawaiian Islands, and this was by far my favorite. (Although the Hilton Waikoloa is hard to beat.) We exchanged through Hilton Vacation Club....

This was our 5th trip to Zihua and we just loved the Intrawest. It is in a great location and the most fun we have had at a beach hotel in a long time. It's close enought to walk to town (we did this only once), but there is so much on this side of the bay, you may end...

In particular the F&B available at the resort especially the "fish to market" buffet served on the beach on Tuesday evenings.

Muchas Gracias to the wonderful staff (Marie, Hugo, Alma, Miguel, Alfredo, Eloy,--everyone!!). We spent nine days at the club, including New Year's Eve and had a terrific time. If you're looking for pampered relaxation with good food and a beautiful beach, this is the place! The service at Acopio (new restaurant) is outstanding. The food was delicious and satisfying. Even...

This was my 11th visit to this club and as always, it was an enjoyable one. The staff is awesome! Everybody was so friendly and accommodating. The new thing about this visit is acopio, the restaurant that replaced Zi. Chef Mario has made some great changes to the menu being much more reasonably priced but still very tasty. Even the...

We just returned, and it was lovely. The resort is quite nice-- perfect location, clean, and very well run. The staff, and I mean every single person, was fantastic. The stairs were not an issue, and neither were the bugs. The beach is fantastic, but don't expect waves. I am not sure that a real foodie would find Zihua the...

We read many negative reviews prior to our arrival, but the pictures of this lovely resort tell the truth. My wife and I visited for a week in early October; low season in Mexico. No guarantees for rooms (HGVC exchange). But we had a one bedroom, two bath we a tremendous balcony and view of the bay. Friendly and responsive...

Late October is low season here, and we got lots of attention from the staff. I can hardly say how well we were treated.

I made a reservation for a week's stay at this Club/Hotel back in August as a gift for my wife's birthday, paying in advance through Expedia.
