    Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa

    4.0-star Hotel Class

    If you're headed to Mexico's Pacific coast on a family getaway, don't rule out the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa. Thanks to the Unlimited-Fun package at this AMResort, globetrotting clans can get a lot of bang for their buck. In addition to spacious digs (equipped with flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, coffee and tea makers and private balconies or terraces), Sunscape Dorado's room rates also cover everything from meals at six restaurants to access to a variety of amenities and activities. Younger guests will especially love the resort's water slides, while complimentary childcare, the educational Explorer's Club (for kids ages 3 to 12) and the entertaining Core Zone Teens Club offers parents the opportunity to lounge on the beach or unwind at the Sunscape Spa by Pevonia (treatments cost extra). Golf enthusiasts should note that Sunscape Dorado's central Ixtapa location sits less than 2 miles from two separate golf courses. Overall, guests sing Sunscape Dorado's praises. However, there is one caveat: Many past visitors call attention to the limited number of lounge chairs by the pool, saying that you'll need to get up early to snag a spot.

    It's hard to miss Las Brisas Ixtapa: The resort's orange exterior proves a stark contrast to Ixtapa's verdant landscape. But the resort's industrial design works in its favor. For example, the slanted facade allows every room to boast its own balcony with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean. And previous guests describe the rooms' contemporary furnishings and amenities (such as minibars and satellite TVs) to be well above par. If you're looking to splurge, some travelers recommend upgrading to a junior suite, which comes equipped with a private terrace outfitted with a hammock, chairs and a Jacuzzi. But don't plan on staying cooped up in your room; Las Brisas Ixtapa offers plenty of ways to get out and about. Golfers will appreciate the resort's southern Ixtapa location, which places putters within 3 miles of the Marina Ixtapa Golf Club and the Ixtapa Golf Course. On the property, you'll find four swimming pools and four tennis courts, and the adjacent beach provides a great setting for a day of lounging. Las Brisas Ixtapa also houses six restaurants, though former guests note that the food here leans toward the pricey side.

    Azul Ixtapa Beach Resort & Convention Center

    Boasting a prime seat along central Mexico's Pacific coast (about 4 miles northwest of Ixtapa), this resort catches guests off guard. While the convention center aspect of Azul Ixtapa Beach Resort & Convention Center unsurprisingly appeals to business travelers, this all-inclusive resort's beachfront locale and ample amenities proved to be unexpected perks for many previous visitors. Leisure travelers applaud the upscale accommodations, outfitted in neutral tones (with a few bright accents) and dark wooden furnishings. All guest rooms also feature cable TVs, views overlooking the ocean and, in some deluxe rooms, balconies and jacuzzis. Though Azul Ixtapa isn't surrounded by the entertainment of central Ixtapa, the resort does provide numerous ways to pass the time, especially if you've got kids in tow. One of the resort's three pools is tailored specifically to children, and younger guests will have a great time at the on-site theme park and mini-golf course (taking a swing comes attached to an additional charge on your bill, however). Meanwhile, Azul Ixtapa's six restaurants (plus a casual snack bar) cater to a wide variety of tastes.
