The resort is older, shows it's age in places, but clean, that is my #1 want with a resort. The only thing we noticed that did not get cleaned, were the beach and pool chairs - not sure why, but it was not a deal breaker either. We were on the 6th floor with a great ocean view. The buffet is small, but there was always something good to eat. Breakfast had the "eggs your way" and bacon. There was hotcakes every morning, a couple of types of fruit, Cottage Cheese, Yogurt with fruit, pastries, etc. Lunch, you had a choice of the Snack Bar - burgers, hot dogs, etc. or the Buffet with a pasta bar, or the A la Carte which had good Club Sandwiches, BLT's, Fish and Fajita's. For dinner, they had the pasta bar, quite often a roast pork or beef, always 2 kinds of soup, they had pizza 3 nights - 2 of them were pretty good. The potatoes cooked with bacon and onions one night were very good. During the week the resort was quiet, on the weekend it fills up. The towel art in our rooms was spectacular, best I have seen, always had plenty of towels and face cloths. You are about 50 steps from the bus to go to Zihau, walk across the street to catch the bus to Playa Linda to go snorkelling on Ixtapa Island. If you would like to eat out there are many restaurants across the road from the resort in the Plaza
