Positive Reviews

By the Beach

Fontan Ixtapa is ideally located on El Malmar Beach, said to be one of the best beaches on Mexico's Pacific coast. Guests said the grounds are absolutely beautiful and there are some really amazing views from the property. The hotel is also located just across the street from the main town area with many shops, restaurants and bars. The area is bustling with people after dark and guests recommend going out to see it for yourself.

An Enjoyable Vacation

Overall, guests enjoyed their stay at Fontan Ixtapa. The hotel offers spacious rooms, a safe location, has a lot of activities onsite and plenty of good food. Though the restaurants get mixed views, most people enjoyed them and liked that the buffet changes themes day-to-day.

Negative Reviews

Already Renovating

This is an older hotel and it shows. Some of the rooms need look ready for renovation, judging by the worn appearance of the furniture, and older looking bathrooms. Fortunately, the hotel has already begun updating various parts.

Hot Spot

No matter the weekday or season, the resort can get very crowded and the pull can get quite full. Because there are limited beach loungers available, guests recommend getting there early to reserve a spot.

Better Cleaning

Some guests thought that housekeeping could do a better job, as the rooms did not appear very clean upon check-in.
