Azul Ixtapa Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionThe Azul Ixtapa is one of the nicer looking resorts in Ixtapa with a spectacular pool area. It is located about a 10-15 minute drive from the hotel zone. Three fun pools and a kids club and baby club make this a popular resort for families.
We arrived days after chriatmas and were greeted with an authentic band & a giant chriatmas tree 🎄the staff are friendly - will take Spanish lessons before next trip- suggest the indoor a/c restaurant for a mid day break from the sun . Pack bug spray for the outdoor dinner & show at dusk. Front desk exchanges Canadian money for less then bank rates at home. Already saving for return trip
Fist time to ixtapa but been travelling mexico for 15 yrs beautiful resort great service nice location if just looking for cold beer and chair checked out 9 different beachs everyone amazing ...the views were amazing and room service top Noth! Highly recommend resort
We stayed at the Azul Beach Resort and Convention Centre from Jan 7 - 14, 2018.Overall the resort is great and the whole family had a wonderful time.Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff and service and the hotel were also excellent. Service was always prompt and friendly. The beach was great! We had heard complaints about it being muddy but it wasn’t bad at all. The sand is very firm and easy walking on. Ocean water is warm and once you actually get in was pretty much gin clear. The kids were amazed at the amount of fish w could see.The pools were AWSOME. The lifeguards were very attentive and get things safe around the pool. The bars and bar service was good. The lobby bar does get crowded in the evenings but all in all it was nice.We checked out the dinner shows in the evenings and the shows themselves were very well done and made for great evening entertainment.The baby and kids clubs were well run and our kids had a good time there. the Buffet restaurants were ok. The food was cooked well and there was plenty of it but there was not much variety and it tended to be the same thing day after day. Overall though we were always able to find something we liked.The only a la Carter we went to was the Oyster Bar. The food there was delicious and service was excellent. The portion sizes tended to be on the small side however. We walked down to the shops on the beach at Playa Linda (a 5 min walk down the beach). The shops there we nice and well run.Prices were reasonable. People were polite and it was a very nice time. We also visited the crocodile sanctuary and it was pretty cool to see the crocs, turtles and iguanas as well.We spent one day out on Ixtapa Island. Checked out 3 of the beaches there and it was a great time. Bring lots of money if you go ( preferably pesos). Food and drinks there can be expensive but the food is excellent!I also spent one day fishing on the Panga Hermanos II with Cheva. This was money well spent. We tried doing some inshore fishing with medium to light spinning gear and managed to catch over 30 fish.Mostly black skipjack tuna (bonito) but we also managed to catch a large needlefish and jack cravaille. Also had a few follows from dorado as well. The cost for the boat was $250 USD for 6 hours of fishing plus 200 pesos for the live bait.It was recommended That you tip the captain 10% of the cost but I gave him $40 USD because he put me on so many fish. I also tried to fish off the rock jetty at the pier at Playa Linda on a few mornings.Caught a few small fish up saw some bigger fish in the area as well.For anybody interested in trying to fish offshore there I would suggest bringing some bright silver and gold spoons, small and medium sized rapalas, and some surface poppers as well. I was useing a 9 ft medium action rod with a igh capacity reel spilled with 40lb braided line. We are already talking about returning to this area and resort next year since we had such a great time.
We took 14 people, 7 children with 5 four and under and this resort was an excellent choice. The whole place was clean with friendly staff working hard to keep it clean. The 3 large buffets had lots of choices for even fussy children but they liked the snack area best. 3 a la cart restaurants were easy to book. We spent the most time in the 3 large pools and kid pool area. Bins of water wings were provided, there was a large staff of lifeguards and waiters brought any kind of drink requested. We celebrated New Years with a wonderful outside meal with two big bands that alternated playing and with singers and a bit of ballet and finished the evening with excellent 15 minute fireworks display. The beach was wet and hard packed so easy to walk, and not hot but harder to build sand castles-but we did every day.
yet again we revisit this resort for the 7th time and we just love it. We arrived at the resort on Friday January 5th at 4:30 got checked in very fast and got to our room within minutes of arriving, and heading to the pool they are now keeping the pool open much later which is very nice. we woke up early on Saturday morning and headed straight to the Playa Linda just down the beach where they have the market and got some Oakley and ray ban sunglasses and my daughters hair braided she got flower beads and an extension and they charged 300 pesos. also bought a sponge bob square pants woven backpack for 300 pesos. Spent the day on the beach and in the pool which is so lovely and relaxing, by now all the servers and bar tenders know us by name. considering we got married here 2 years ago. They have a new dinner show on Tuesdays which is like a circus Olay production with clowns, acrobatics and juggling. it was really good and entertaining, the supper started at 7:00 and you would eat till around 8:30 and the show would start, the food was a lot better this time around. As a;ways the breakfasts are always good and as evryone should know that when you travel with sunwing you get free room service and then they now offer 24 hour room service but they will charge you 70 pesos for your service but if they amount you order the amount goes up, over 5 drinks or 5 items of food they will charge you another 70 pesos which is still cheap. the kids club is absolutely amazing my daughter went for 2 days and they are constantly doing activites from yoga, rock climbing, swimming, getting ice cream, painting shirts the staff are so happy and welcoming, I felt very comfortable with the workers and the safety for my daughter. a cab ride from the hotel to ixtapa should be 130 and a cab ride to zihautanejo is 210, this should be the fix rate and don't get in if they want anymore. I had had some problems with a tooth so I decided to get into a dentist in zihautanejo and he got me in very quick and he realized that I needed a root canal and a cap, so within two days I had gotten a root canal and a cap done and all it cost was 3000 pesos which would convert to about 210.00 cad. it feels great and I got a prescription for a pain medication and it cost me 100 pesos, that I picked up at the mega store just down the street. I highly recommend this dentist he was very cautious and particular and took his time to do the best job, and he sure succeeded.To travel to the island it is 50 pesos and their is two sides of the island one side has more coral reef for snorkeling and the other one doesn't have as much but both have a lot of fish to see. each side has restaurants that you can order food and drinks on, the sand on each side is totally different one is much rougher to walk on then the other side. it was a great trip and I would love to be back at the resort right now, the weather was amazing.i will always recomend this resort to families and older couples but other then that i wouldnt recomend it. if anyone is interested in ixtapa or this resort please dont hesitate to message me and i will forsure give you all the information you will need.
