Enjoyed our stay
The overall cleanliness was good, however upon arrival our condo had not been cleaned like promised. We found out that new ownership took place just before our visit and some kind of communication lacking. The condo was cleaned within 2 hours upon our arrival. So kudos to the condo staff!! Our stay was overall awesome however the resort has put in place a reserving system effective 2020 for chairs by the pool and beach. Was proven to be a HUGE hassle getting chairs without complaint and checking in 2-4 times a day with staff if any chairs opened up. We didn’t find this to be relaxing!, before booking again I will be confirming that they have changed the reserving chairs policy.
Overall Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo is a great place to enjoy perfect sunny days and the heat as long as you don’t mind the humidity. We will be returning!
Hello Roxane! I hope you are doing well, just catching up with your recent stay review. Yes indeed I am the new owner as of February this 2020 and catching up with information of rentals and guests.
The reservation of the pool and beach chairs is being reviewed by the staff in charge of the building. I understand it was a hassle and I do apologize. The staff is currently checking to change the policy to make it easy for travelers.
Once again, thanks for your feedback and looking forward for you to return to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Bay View Grand Marina .

Have been to Ixtapa many times and always stay at Bayview Grande Marina. Experiences have always been good. This time not so much. Condo was not clean and bad smell in the place. Seriously needed a good cleaning and sanitizing.
Dear Brad. We have never, ever gotten any review regarding cleanliness in the las 6 years we have owned and rented the condo in multiple times.
We never had any communication from your part either regarding an issue in which you base your complaining.
The only communication was the misunderstanding you had regarding the $40 usd that we charge for first cleaning before your arrival and then a cleaning when you leave. This is the standard procedure we have always used and we explain in the welcome manual I’ve sent that if you require additional days of cleaning you need it to arrange it with my local administrator who welcomed you at your arrival.
I asked you to read again the advertisement and description of what we offer as well as what I sent before your arrival, it is all very very clear there.
You stayed there 14 days and didn’t hired nor ask for any cleaning in those 2 weeks.
What happened actually is that you lost a pool towel which I’ve deducted from your deposit, which makes me think if your review is vías because of that.
Sorry but I just don’t understand your complaining months after, and it make no sense if we compared it with the impecable history of reviews that we have.
This complain damages my wife’s and myself reputation and I just can’t accept it. If something we are is very clean and we take perfect care of our property.
In case you did find the apartment not clean at your arrival why you didn’t complain about it with me, and just wrote that you didn’t understand the $40 dollars charge which I did explain. Everything is written in our Conversations.
For anyone that reads this answer to such a bad review I invite you to read the rest of our reviews to have a sense of what we really are and offer.
It is our home and we treat it as such, with continuos maintenance, cleaning, changing any furniture, appliances, etc necessary to be replaced.
Sincerely Bill and Karin SOLOMON
Ixtapa (officially known as Ixtapa Zihuatanejo) is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun and the sea (temperatures do not vary much during the year at around 25-30ºC/80-85ºF). Unlike Cancún and other resorts, it has fewer attractions and nightlife so has a more relaxing atmosphere. The beach is sandy and not usually too crowded. The bay is shletered so swimming in the sea is not a problem.
The town is well looked after by the Mexican Tourism Agency, with well-tended gardens along the boulevard and good roads. There are several good restaurants but more exclusive restaurants are to be found just outside Zihuatanejo, the fishing town some five kms. from Ixtapa.
Other good beaches are also in Zihuatanejo (La Ropa, Gatas) and further along the coast in Ixtapa (Playa Linda, a with a small crocodile sanctuary (but don't worry, there are no crocs to worry about in Ixtapa itself). Ixtapa also has a fine marina where other good restaurants are to be found.
Behind the beach area, Ixtapa has an inland lagoon with mangroves and a good activity is to rent a bicycle and ride throughout the 8km ecological park where water fowl can be seen at an observation point.There are two very good golf courses open to visitors
