We stayed for a week at The Fontan and NEVER AGAIN! We also paid the same price that friends paid for the Barcelo. The food was horrible at the Fontan and we ended up eating out alot. They would take away all the chairs at the outside bar and shut the bar at 5 p.m. and you had to sit...

Being the second time to this excellent area we decided to go from a 5 star hotel to the Fontan Resort this year. We were equally happy at the Fontan, in fact found it much friendlier . The food was excellent, except that after two weeks we were just tired of FOOD in general as it was always available to...

We stayed at the Fontan from March 7 to 14, 2006. The weather was outstanding, 30 degrees and no clouds every day. The food was edible, but not great. None of us got sick. Our 8 year old had a hard time finding something to eat besides watermelon and jello. The drinks were good, especially the margaritas at the lobby...

I went to the Fontan Feb 2-16 2006. The service at the bars was great. Just see Serafin or Anthony. They were fast pleasant to customers who loved them. As a bartender myself I feel able to rate bar service. The rooms were very good and the beach the best. Heidi was in the dining room with a Hi hello...

We just returned from a fabulous 14 day vacation in Ixtapa. We were there from February 21 to March 7. This was our first time there and we fell in love with it. The Fontan Hotel is a 3 star hotel - as rated. There is nothing really that we can complain about EXCEPT the dinner buffet. It wasn't horrible,...

You definately get what you pay for when you stay at the Fontan. Most of the clientel that go there are mexican families, so if screaming kids in the pool all day is your thing go for it. Finding a chair was impossible, so make sure to get up extra early. I felt the staff was always talking behind our...

Recently we booked an all-inclusive 2 week vacation at the Fontan Hotel in Ixtapa. The hotel was rated as a 2 1/2 star so we did not go there with 4 or 5 star expectations. I have to tell you, we were very pleasantly surprised!!!! Before we went, we had gone on trip advisor to read up on some other...

We stayed at the Fontan Ixtapa Mexico February 2006. We liked it very much, but it is definitely a 3 star resort. (Don't expect 4 or 5 star quality- Check out the Barcelo instead) It is great for those seeking a nice all-inclusive vacation at a great value. The staff is friendly, and the beach was beautiful. The Fontan is...
