we stayed in Ixtapa Nov 13-27 2005, we have stayed at 8 different all-inclusives in Mexico and the D.R., some more than once and found this to be the worst experience of them all. We have always said the food is not cruise ship food but you are never hungry, well this time we did go hungry some times. We... More

We just got back from Ixtapa & we have an overall good feeling about the whole vacation. The beach was the best part for us, even though the waves can get a little rough. We were body surfing on boogie boards that we borrowed from some people that we met there, but they can also be rented on the beach.... More

A group of us rebooked from Cancun, and were very fortunate to get direct flights from Chicago by going Fri-Fri instead of Sat-Sat, Apple was very helpful through the whole hurricane thing. The Presidente was techincally a "downgrade" from where we were supposed to stay, but it ended up being fantastic. We got a nice room in the "villas" it... More

We were one of the many people who got re-directed from the Cancun area at the last minute due to Wilma. We arrived into Ixtapa with no pre-conceptions of the area so only came with a positive attitude for what the resort could offer us. At arrival they treated us with open arms giving us 3 different options for rooms;... More

We (and friends) just returned from the Presidente InterContinental Ixtapa - literally, last night Nov-17-05. Overall, this resort is a three star at best!. It may be advertised on the net as a 4 or 4+ (considering the local resort competition), but if you were to pick it up and dump it in say, the Mayan Coast, it would be... More

We were there between November 5th and November 12th. Giant cochroaches! Buffet food was mediocre at best. Breakfast buffet was OK. Restaurant food you made reservations for was decent. Totally disorganized. Had to have reservations for anything but the buffet, but difficult to find out what restaurants were open to make the reservations at. Said an all night deli and... More

I thought it was the best hotel I have ever stayed at in my life!!!!!!!! I think all of the people who said something bad about it are out of their minds! I'm not saying it's a perfect hotel(now don't get me wrong)but I really enjoyed my time there.

Stayed there. Terrible food, i was the only in a party of 4 not to get sick... The management said we had brought some sort of virus with us from Quebec! The staff were very unfriendly, and acted as you were bothering them. The beach was beautifull, and the weather, not a cloud in the sky. The rooms were clean... More
