Villa Ixzi plus in Ixtapa

The taxis are not that expensive-certainly affordable for someone who can afford to spend a month here. 100 pesos gets you almost anywhere. Golandrinas is the street that starts across from the street that takes you to Las Brisas. it winds around the golf course to the back side of the shopping center. Not familiar with the particular property you mentioned as there are several apartments, condos and homes back there. Most are pretty nice.

I know you mean well, but with all due respect most people who spend any amount of time here, especially locals, think the taxis in Ixtapa are particularly expensive, charging more than their Zihuatanejo counterparts for much shorter distances, and when they read comments like yours (and they do) they are inspired to raise their rates even more or at the very least to gouge foreigners and deny rides to Mexicans. When visitors toss around hundred peso bills like Monopoly money, it only causes prices to rise, and those of us who earn a living here who aren't narcos or políticos only see our meager pesos able to purchase less and less. So please, try seeing things from a local perspective. Locals already have a hard enough time getting taxis whenever there are foreigners around because too many taxi drivers believe they can get away with gouging foreigners instead of having to abide by the official rates for centavo-pinching locals. Local business owners would much rather see you make purchases in their establishments than to have you waste money unnecessarily just to get around. If you stay in Ixtapa and take a taxi more than four times a day you might save money by renting a car. Especially if you want to go to any other beaches besides Ixtapa's El Palmar.
Saludos.
