The spa in Ixtapan de la Sal is a pleasant remnant from the past - nothing fancy about it, but the spa treatments are superb. This is a place to relax and unwind, between massages, hair treatments, pedi/manicures, facials, etc.

Have been going there for years and then have not been for several years because of the violence that was going on. Looked on the web and thought it was purchased by the Marriott so booked Hotel Rancho San Diego Grand Spa Resort in place of Ixtapan. Am very disappointed now and hope we can return next year.

This was my second trip to this Spa and it will NOT be my last. The staff are amazing; really service oriented and patient with some of the "ugly Americans" I observed.

The spa treatments are excellent and the Holistic spa is really beautiful. We took an excursion to Taxco and had a wonderful time with our driver who showed us all of the sights. The lunches were great by the pool and the service was excellent. All of the staff was very accommodating and helpful. I would absolutely go back.
