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!
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.
I would recommend this hotel. People are very pleasent. It was peaceful, great for just relaxing.
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 security informed us that they would deal with it before we left and when we confronted him the next morning he said we had never showed him that we could break in and our door was faulty so the staff was extremely sketchy and i felt unsafe the whole trip. Also NO variety of food. Same nasty food every day and room service knew NO english. Got our order wrong every time. My boyfriend hates sour cream and the last time we ordered room service he said 5 different times please no sour cream and they still put it on there, with extra on the side too. HORRIBLE service, horrible staff, and you WILL get robbed.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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 the food service. The restaurants and bars are attractive, but the food is expensive and low in quality and quantity. We rarely drink, but decided to have one cocktail each. The Bloody Mary, which is not a difficult drink to make, was awful. The beach is beautiful to look at, but the waves are strong and rough in this area, and hardly anyone entered the water. However, overall, this hotel was a delightful experience for a group of five people, ranging in ages from 74 to 1 yr. old. We highly recommend this hotel, but strongly suggest that you eat and drink elsewhere, and go to a beach in nearby Zihuatanejo, such as La Playa de las Gatas or La Playa de la Ropa, where the water is tranquil in a beautiful bay setting.
The hotel is funky... not well maintained. Beds are hard, sheets are scratchy. Air conditioning didn't cool as much as I'd have liked. The elevators didn't work well. They would frequently stop on a floor not marked for stopping & one time it stopped at every floor. The pool & hotel need an overhaul or at least some maintaining - paint etc. Service by staff is fairly good. Surprisingly the food there was pretty good - cost too much though. The location is good, the beach is nice, people are friendly.
The hotel was clean, but the pool situation is crazy. People get up as early as 4:00 AM to start reserving chairs. Evidently, shortly before I arrived, the staff limited the chair reservations to 6:00 AM. So, as I laid in bed at 6:00 AM, I could hear the bells of the elevator as everyone was going to the pool to reserve their chair. Other reviews complain about the chairs and I didn't heed their advise. It really is miserable to go to the hotel and literally not be able to get a lounge chair at the pool - but that is the reality at this place.
