Our Stay At The Park Royal Ixtapa All Inclusive Beach Resort

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Park Royal Ixtapa Resort in Mexico. A first class all – inclusive resort hotel located directly on Ixtapa’s main Playa el Palmar beach.

An outstanding all – inclusive beach resort!

My Review Of The Park Royal Ixtapa Beach Resort

Front Desk Staff

My family and I have stayed at many all – inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean over the years, and by far, the Park Royal has exceeded our expectations of a 3 ½ star rated resort.

From friendly staff, exceptional service, immaculate rooms and grounds, to wonderfully prepared meals, it was a pleasure to stay at this property during our 2 week stay in Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo Mexico!

Park Royal Ixtapa – A Beautiful Beachfront Resort

Main Beach with Shade Huts

Ixtapa Beachfront

This resort hotel is ideally located in the center of Ixtapa’s main beach and within easy walking distance to all area attractions in Ixtapa.  The hotel is located an easy 15 minutes from the Town of Zihuatanejo just over the hill, and a quick 25 minute ride from Zihuatanejo International Airport.

Playa el Palmar Beach is a gorgeous 3 kilometer stretch of beach ideal for walking, water sports and just enjoying the sand and surf.

Helpful Tips Banner

The surf can be treacherous on this stretch of beach, but there are many other nearby beaches that offer safe and calm waters for swimming and snorkeling!

We were able to swim at certain times of the day in certain sections and the water was a beautiful 27 degrees Celsius.  There are life guards on duty on the beach, but do heed their warnings and use caution at all times!

As well, there a beach front bar with full service and an additional bar located in the lobby of the hotel.  Not once during our stay, did we wait in line for bar service and on top of this staff are always present to take your drink order directly from the beach or on the hotel grounds.

Fresh Towels All Day Long At The Beach Towel Hut

There’s a pool side beach towel hut where you can receive fresh towels at any time during the day. Again, not once did we encounter any time where fresh towels were not available.

I remember even on some of our 🛳 All Inclusive Cruise Deals where pool towels had run out, and were not available for the entire day.

We had never experienced this level of service at any of our previous 3 ½ to 4 Star Rated hotels in the past!

From well – appointed buffet dining both in the hotel and at beach front, to the outdoor El Jardin open snack bar by the pool, you’re covered with delicious fresh meals prepared daily by the hotel chefs.

The resort also offers a lovely a la carte dining experience in the hotel by reservation only called the El Italiano Restaurant.

This is complimentary for guests who prefer a more formal dining experience during their stay.
