Good tourist class hotel with friendly staff. Clean public spaces and rooms. Food is the only dissapointment; but many good restaurant choices across the street in the plazas. Room maintenance issue was quickly resolved. Been there five years in a row and keep going back.
We had a wonderful time in Ixtapa where we stayed at the Dorado Pacifica. We went with friends who were returning for the seventh time. My husband and I understood why our friends keep going back to the same hotel. It was situated in the middle of the Ixtapa hotels along the ocean and across from the market and restraurant area. The staff of the Dorado Pacifica were very personable. The restaurant and bell staff greeted us like old friends. The rooms were comfortable and the pool area was great. We joined the bocce ball games, watch water volleyball and other activities. I recommend the Dorado Pacifica to new visitors to Ixtapa and to old visitors if they aren't staying there already.
Although we are not fans of the A/I format, it was better than we expected. There was no problem getting any drink and most foods requested. The food was generally very good but did get a little tiresome after 2 weeks but there are still the excellent restaurants nearby. We just hope they will be able to survive with so many hotels going A/I. We probably would go back as we love the Dorado, especially their staff, Felipe, Jorge, Saul, Antonio and so many others. Our only concern would be the A/I. We would like to have a choice or maybe just A/I breakfast.
Loved staying here. It is a family based hotel, so expect family hours. Pool bar closed at 6PM. not a huge resort, but a few high quality restaurants. Better than most resorts I haves stayed at in Mexico.
We could see the improvements made from last year with the all inclusive restaurants. The food is very good. Service around the pool is second to none. Allehandro was our waiter all week. We seldom had an empty glass... except when they ran ran out of beer 3 times! Remember folks with all of us from the midwest.. especially Wisconsin we're a bunch of beer fans.. as opposed to Bear fans! lol The pool staff really makes your day around there. Alberto, Himer, Lisbeth, and Bianca keep everyone entertained and brighten your day. Hope to be fortunate enough to return next year!
I would recommend this hotel. People are very pleasent. It was peaceful, great for just relaxing.
We stayed here just one night because we were not starting our timeshare until Saturday. We had so much more fun here in one night that the whole week at the time share. Great swim up bar,friendly staff, fun activities and great weather. It is just a great place to stay.
If you want to lose all your money this is the resort to come to. To start, our room 2027 was extremely dirty. When we first arrived there was puke in our toilet already, and it appeared to not have been cleaned at all since the last guests. Also there was a trail of drips coming into our room from the room above ours that honestly looked like dried blood and there was a LOT of it. We mentioned it during our stay but it was never cleaned. Also my boyfriend was robbed 220 USD. The strange thing is is it seemed as if the person who took it knew exactly where to look because nothing else was missing only cash right from his wallet, his bag was even zipped back up. I do NOT trust the employees they barely spoke any english or at least pretended not to and would not do anything about the stolen cash. Also i showed security that i could break into our own room just by slipping the card between the door and lock so it was THEIR responsibility and liability that it was taken. The head of secur...
The hotel was very nosiey, dirty elevators and the food was vengeful. Especially the 'kosher' turkey/bacon. The room had a nice view, and was cleaned well. Typical problems at checkout with extra charges.
We have stay at this hotel at least a dozen times and we will continue to come back. They have great staff and an outstandingcaring general manager.
All of the staff are friendly and efficient. Our 2 rooms were ready when we arrived. The lobby is open and attractive. Our rooms were not luxurious, but were nicely furnished and sufficiently spacious, with small, but comfortable balconies with ocean-view. It was only a little disorienting that our pool view was of the hotel next door, and our wi-fi connected us through that hotel's system. The washrooms are large and attractive with a large, really nice floor to ceiling shower enclosure. The pool is great, with a consistent 4 ft. depth. At one end, one can swim to the bar, where the depth becomes shallow, so that you can have a beverage while staying in the pool. The only 2 drawbacks are that, in Aug., the heat and humidity are intense, and the upstairs corridors are all glass-enclosed and not air-conditioned. Just by going from our room to the lobby downstairs, I was sweating so profusely that I could have easily returned to the room to shower again. The other negative is t...
We really enjoyed the hotel. The service was always friendly and responsive. We were surprised that we did enjoy the food, mostly appetizers, breakfast and lunch at the hotel. They did a wonderful job of preparing the fish that was caught on our fishing trip .We knew we would be back when we were checking out. We were there for a week and met so many guests that had been going back for years.
el hotel es comodo, bonito, bien ubicado, tranquilo, excelente para descansar, no habia agua caliente
el servicio fue excelente las instalaciones un poco descuidadas
La ubicacion del hotel La comida del bufette no ers muy variada, ni las bebidas tampoco
Hotel viejo. Pobre mantenimiento. Fallas múltiples Nunca arteglaron el aire acondicionado
Lo mejor del hotel es su ubicación y la relación calidad/precio. Está bien si buscas un todo incluido en la playa. La comida, aunque sabrosa, no es muy variada. El gimnasio tiene aparatos viejísimos. Algunas habitaciones tienen hormigas diminutas (nada serio). En la piscina se junta mucha suciedad, la limpian poco.
Su ubicación La presión del agua de la regadera es demasiado baja y el mantenimiento de bañera deja mucho que desear, deberían tener mejor calidad los baños.
Tiene una playa muy bonita y buen servicio en bebidas y alimentos. En la playa no tienen camastros, solo unas sillas muy viejas e incomodas. Las regaderas las tienen que remodelar, quitando sus tinas viejas.
La ubicación Aunque los empleados son amables, tardaron mucho en encontrar la reservación.Necesita una remodelación de la recepción y loby
Es un hotel que se encunetra bien ubicado y permite tener despalazamientos por toda la costera de Ixatapa Los precios de los desayunos, si fuesen más accesibles, una mayor cantidad de personas lo aprovecharian.
La alberca y el acceso a la playa No nos respetaron el tipo de cama que solicitamos pedi king size y nos asignaron habitacion con 2 matrimoniales, solicite el cambio y no fuimos atendidos. Las instalaciones son muy viejas, las llaves del baño muy duras, la tina muy sucia, las toallas grises creo que algun dia fueron blancas, en general no tuve confianza en la limpieza, la terraza sucia. El personal siempre el mismo, es decir, quiza haga falta darles descanso para un mejor servicio. No se nos informo sobre el evento de la noche mexicana, si era con costo, nos pudieron avisar y decidir nosotros si asistiamos o no
El precio y la cercanía a todo. Saturado de gente, poco estacionamiento, no cabe uno mas.
perfect location very good staff service exelent reception service nice evening enterteinment shows , dance contest karaoke etc too many kids (hotel policy) children under 8 unlimited ? stay free even worst the lobby bar //////////// adult only ////////// serves no alcohol drinks to children on late hours
Newer facilities. Grotto was a nice kid-free environment. Bike tour was a fun, included excursion and staff was friendly. Connection to sister resort was a nice walk even though the other hotel was inferior. Lobby bartenders took care of us. Rooms and balconies were comfortable and well kept compared to other resorts in the area. Proximity to Isla Ixtapa was hard to beat- walking distance to ferry. Food was pretty bad, limited options and not even presented well. Beach access was a joke. Not many restaurants were open, even though they were advertised as such during booking. Far from town. Layout was a little strange - too tiered/broken up. Back-of-house operations were a little too exposed. Would have been nice if the oyster bar was open during our stay.
