Well it is 28 days and counting till I have my feet in the sand and thawed water of Ixtapa!
We stayed at the Barcelo last February for 10 days, and this year I'm taking my 2 - 20 something daughters for a mom/daughter trip March 1-8th . We had an oceanview room last year, and that was a great perk. My question to you....
I emailed the hotel in September, requested a 4 or 5th floor ocean view room, and received a confirmation email that they would give us that. So now that the time is getting close, I thought it best to reconfirm my request. I've emailed them twice, and no reply. Any suggestions, or should I just take the initial email granting my request, and hope that they honor that? This is my daughter from Alaska's first time to a beach in 16 years, so want to make it special for her...and I know they will both love the sound of the ocean at nite.
Sorry this is wordy...just looking for some advice.
Also...wondering about suggestions for snorkeling...I read that the Picante is good...or should we just take the water taxi to Ixtapa Island? Like I said...I want this trip to be very special for my daughters.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
