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.

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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • dc2jz : San Jose, California
Budget hotel with modest amenities

This hotel is nothing fancy but it certainly isn't bad either. There are a few pools separating the beach from a large restaurant area. The food was good however the place was relatively busy during meal times. Your room had a TV and AC with a decent bed but was nothing fancy. The balcony was nice but it rained while I was there. The all inclusive package provided an inexpensive weekend getaway .

Great location

I have stayed that this hotel eight times, I have had smaller rooms and larger rooms. Almost always it works out after talking with the conseguir. The hotel itself is being made better by renovating the pools and refinishing the hotel.I'm looking forward to February 2017 as I will be going back and seeing all of the changes.

  • Carole C :
This hotel is quoted as a 3. 5 but it should be higher because of the service and the staff. there

Well this in January we went to Ixtapa and stay at the hotel Fontan for 12 weeks just love it and know we are going back for 17 weeks we are already book leaving on December and coming back in April. With all the renovation done on the hotel can wait and tell you when we come back from the vacation so you will hear from me back in April 2017. Bye bye Carole and Yvon. We go back because we love the staff and it s very very clean and the food is very good. So you will hear from me back in April 2017. Thank you

Did not get what I rquested.

Had to pay too much for upgraded rooms even though we had paid for all-inclusive rates. Reception not willing to answer any of our concerns. Front desk just don't give a crap as to what you booked and paid for before you got there. Can't recommend this place. Too many bad things going on.
