Our Opinion

The Fontan Beach is a very basic resort that delivers exactly what you pay for. Basic but clean rooms, average food and pretty good service considering it is only rated 2.5 stars. The Fontan Beach is a good choice for those on a budget who are looking for a low cost vacation and are not expecting anything fancy, but still want a clean and comfortable resort.

Fontan Ixtapa Beach Resort

In the hotel zone with an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Course virtually across the street. Deep sea fishing for marlin and sailfish may be arranged at the Fontan. Restaurants, nightclubs and shopping are a few minutes walk away.
Location: Right on El Palmar beach in Ixtapa, 15 minutes drive from Zihuatanejo and 20 minutes from the airport.
