We were there as part of a group of realtors taking some continuing education classes. We have stayed at the Krystal several other times in the past. There were some deferred maintenance issues this time. We had a couple of problems with the water
and shower in our room. The hotel staff was very helpful and upgraded our room at no additional cost.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Lots of good shopping and dining within walking distance. Ixtapa Island was a very nice experience. I would recommend it to anyone. Especially for snorkeling.
This hotel was very conviently located in the middle of the hotel stip. You are in within 10 minutes to a lot of shopping and restaurants. The rooms were very clean. The hotel says wireless internet, but i found that it only works in the lobby,
bar or on a certain floor. It was vey inconvenient. Overall, i would recommend this hotel to others, but everything in the hotel closes rather early
The Crystal Ixtapa was very comfortable and well located for a variety of shopping and dining in Ixtapa. The rooms are comfortable and clean besides having artistic maid service that creates clever images with hand towels and flowers every
morning. The only downside from our perspective is minor, but the bathroom could use some upgrading. Our only meal at the hotel was breakfast on the morning of departure, but the food and service were excellent and surprisingly moderately priced.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Swimming, fishing, boating, parasailing, surfboarding, large marina with several restaurants, sunbathing, shopping, and numerous restaurants within walking distance.
