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
  • 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.

  • Lisa D :

Unsatisfactory and average pool was to close to the lobby for me. Staff were not knowledgeable or concerned to help. Food not available enough Lines for a drink at bar were long. Had to wait up to 15-20 mins. Food was less than desirable. Not much variety. Compared to my 40th other stays throughout mexico. So....disapointed

  • Lizabgonz :
Great experience!

One of the best experiences We've ever had.The room was very spacious and comfortable and super clean, also the view was beautiful. We loved and enjoyed each and everyone of the the hotel amenities (has too many) specially the pool and the entertainment/animation where my kids had a lot of fun. The hotel personnel was very kind and friendly I can say they really tried to make our stay very pleasant, I would definitely recommended Hotel Fontan Ixtapa to everybody, I can't wait to go back and visit again!

No words to describe the excellence of this place

Well, i don't know were should i start, there are so many good things in this hotel that let me amazed specially the service that the staff offers, the restaurants, the pools and the good thing is that is close to the beach so, if the pools are full there is always a second option that is go to the beach that is never bad.
