Hi. I'm coming to Ixtapa/Zihua in 32 days and counting for my first time. I feel as if I've been there 20 times after reading this message board every day the last 4 months. It's great and I can't wait to experience one blissful week with no cares and doing nothing except going to the beach, drinking margaritas and reading a good book - my idea of heaven. I've read all the archives on this hotel but most are quite old. Does anyone have any recent experiences to share on this hotel? Is anything not included I should know about? Any tips for which rooms are best (low rise or tower)?
We plan on going out for dinner most evenings. Are the theme nights ones where I'll want to eat on property or not? My perspective on all-inclusive is that although I don't plan on eating the majority of my meals there, it is worth it to me to not have to carry cash around the hotel or worry about how much I've charged to my room.
I'm happily waiting to see paradise!! Thanks!
