Park Royal Ixtapa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This was our first time in Ixtapa and we were very impressed. The resort and room was very clean food was good. Pool was nice. Ocean was a little too rough to swim in every day but we did manage to get in. We had a great time, close to downtown and shopping and casino if desired. The staff were very helpful and nice. Will return in the fall.
We had a pleasant stay at Park Royal in Ixtapa, even if he had a few hickups at the beginning of our trip (not the room we booked, toilet leaking, too much solicitation upon arrival). Fortunately, the toilet was fixed two days later without us asking. Our room is pretty austere and the beds were not the most comfy, but the outside installations are number 1 and extremely clean. We loved the bars' staff, especially Marcos, Omar and Angel :). The pool is nice and the beach is perfect (even though the break was too intense for us to swim). Overall, this was a very nice trip and we would recommend Park Royal!
Spent 6 days in middle of 14 day vacation with severe diarrhea. Food handling unsafe and unhealthy. Only hot food was at Italian restaurant and the soups at the buffets. Steam tables do not keep the food adequately hot. Pool and beach drink servers are often scarce. Bars open not until 11am so no place to get even water or juice until then. Beach bar closes 6pm. Bridge over the pool in terrible condition...........needs to be replaced....appears very unsafe. Need some umbrellas around pool chairs - out in the hot sun and shady areas often taken. Chairs on beach uncomfortable.....need some pads; also some upright chairs and small tables. Lounge- disco plays loud music until 2am......no sleep until they close. Entertainment mediocre.....karaoke every other nite. Hotel did a promo camera shoot for 3 days...pool out of bounds one morning until 11am and shut down part of beach as well. Pool deck dangerous........slippery to walk on. Have seen these problems noted by others on tripadvisor . Hopefully the hotel will make some changes........It could be a lot better vacation destination.
if you are a resort type person/family this is a great place to visit. lots for the family to do. the swimming is a bit rough in the ocean as the waves are a bit big and there seems to always be undertow. be careful with the kids. for a great beach to visit with the kids is in the town of Zihuatanejo. the bay there has a very calm setting for all to play in. the showers were not the greatest but they did the job. the food was amazing, all inclusive bar was great, hotel activities were fun to watch and join.
Beach was nice, service good...pretty much like everywhere in Mexico. Food was bad.... Very little variety, cold. Don't eat at the snack bar at pool..mystery meat hamburger-awful. Chicken meals were basically bones with chicken on them. Had the same presentation of tilapia every meal. One night had a dish called beef but actually it was liver. Pork was same basic thing every time. Salads and pasta were the best things to eat. Italian restaurant was pretty good. Pool was overrun by screaming kids, mostly Mexicans. Must have been their spring break. Staff did not speak English well so was hard to communicate. Room had safe. No refrigerator, no coffee pot. Only one 2-prong electrical outlet in the bathroom and one 3-prong by the TV, so bring along a power strip if you have to charge any electronics. At least it was clean. Had 2 shower curtain rings missing. Guess they can't afford to replace them. Had the cheapest hardware for knobs on dresser drawers & louvered doors. Were hard to grab & one came off the screw. Not the place for early sleepers. Band plays in open-air lobby from 8-9PM and 10-11PM. Can hear throughout hotel. We were just a couple floors right above-really noisy. The disco was open -air as well and was open 9PM-2AM so you have to keep your sliding door closed and AC running to block the noise, but can still hear the bass. Not good for light sleepers, which I am. Drinks were low-end alcohol & beer was Tecate & Indio which were pretty tasteless. Won't be returning to this place.
