Our Opinion
Like the Tesoro Ixtapa, the Presidente is an older building and probably more along the lines of a 3.5 star rather than a 4 star. The location is good, right in the hotel zone and pool has a swim up bar with lots of activities going on. A combination of low rise and a high rise building, the Presidente is a good choice for singles and couples who want to be in the hotel zone.
This popular holiday resort is an All Inclusive pleasure mecca for sun and fun seekers, where one price covers all the comfort of this tropical sanctuary.
Location: Right on El Palmar beach, 15 minute drive to Zihuatanejo, 25 minutes from the airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Wayne G : Aberdeen, South Dakota, United States

Quick review today... We stayed here for a week in March 2016. The location of this Hotel... well there is no better location if you want to visit the shops and bars/restaurants across the street! Which you will want to visit as the Meals here get old after the first day! Food was good not great, drinks on the other hand were the WORST drinks ever by any all inclusive we have stayed. The rooms and grounds were kept beautifully clean always.. Nothing to eat after 7pm ish. Have to go across the street for food after 9 for sure. Price here was really cheap to eat out. I would recommend going to Ixtapa Island... at least 2 times for a day trip!! The waves are not so big to get some decent snorkeling in... lots of fish but sort of cloudy. Food really cheap too! Taxi? Jerry the self proclaimed "Mexican Morgan Freeman". He and his boy were top notch! local # 755-115-7563 It is really safe to go out on your own... So I would come back to Ixtapa, I would not stay here again I would stay at a Higher end resort or rent a condo on the beach in Zihuatanejo. Have fun and don't turn your back on the ocean waves!

A nice surprise...

This is my next visit to the Pacific after many years and really wanted to have a good vacations experience. Spent weeks reading Tripadvisor reviews and found it a bit tricky to identify which one was the best hotel option, so I chose the one with good reviews and decent price. This hotel has everything it offers, they have good food, good drinks, comfortable rooms, excellent beach and pool, the most impressive wifi complementary service, and I mean it, it was perfect! I had a massage in their spa and although the facilities are not impressive, the service is good and extremely inexpensive (give it a chance!). The tour services were perfect and again inexpensive. The hotel is located right in front of a mall so you can find all your souvenirs at very good prices, or you can take a local bus in front of the hotel that will take you to Zihuatanejo in 20 minutes and can take one back with no issues. I had a great time visiting Ixtapa Zihuatanejo and have no buts at all, I will choose Holiday Inn one more time, no doubts. Mention apart to front desk concierge Jorge Luis for being of great help during our stay. Thanks Jorge!

  • Edith G :
Horrible check in

Just arrived and was asked for a print out of my reservation, why I don't know. Took over 30 minutes to check in because the girl Keylin, at the counter insisted on having a copy of the reservation when we were already in their system! The WiFi wouldn't work and we got a room with two beds instead of the King size I reserved. I sure hope the service gets better because the welcome was not upto par!

Excellent staff, from the porter to the administrative personnel.

Clean room, efficient controlled air conditioning. Because it was off season most (99%) were Mexican tourist, mostly from the neighbor State of Michoacan. We enjoyed some side tours but one of them we didn't like at all: A 'sail" boat 2 1/2 ride, good only for those who want to get drunk with very cheap beverages. Very bad taste on board "show" (?).
