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 right on the main beach of Ixtapa, Playa el Palmar.
An excellent all-inclusive beach resort!
My rating of the park Royal Ixtapa Beach Resort
My family and I have stayed in many all-inclusive resorts across Mexico and the Caribbean over the years. The Park Royal far exceeded our expectations for a 3 ½ star resort.
From friendly staff, exceptional service, immaculate rooms and facilities to wonderfully prepared meals, it was a pleasure to stay at this hotel during our two-week stay in Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo, Mexico!

Park Royal Ixtapa – A beautiful beach resort
Main beach with shade huts
This resort hotel is ideally located in the center of the main beach of Ixtapa and within walking distance of all sights in Ixtapa. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the city of Zihuatanejo and only 25 minutes from the Zihuatanejo International Airport.
The beach of Playa el Palmar is a beautiful 3 kilometer long stretch of beach that is ideal for hiking, water sports and enjoying sand and surfing.
The surf can be tricky on this stretch of beach, but there are plenty of other nearby beaches that offer safe and calm water for swimming and snorkeling!
We were able to swim in certain sections at certain times of the day and the water was a nice 27 degrees Celsius. Lifeguards are on duty on the beach, but heed their warnings and be careful!
Park Royal Ixtapa Hotel facilities
Ocean view room with king bed
Choose from standard ocean and garden view rooms, all with 27-inch cable TVs, air-conditioning, secure electronic passport doors, washrooms with showers, and well-appointed amenities such as hairdryers.
The balconies are large with tables and chairs to relax and enjoy the view from every room.
Well-equipped and immaculate washroom
Our room was very clean and there was an excellent housekeeping service every day, including pretty towel decorations made by our housekeeping staff every day for our enjoyment.
Room staff decorations
On the beach there is a huge, warm outdoor pool with a bar for swimming. The staff have organized daily pool and beach activities for you to enjoy.
- Pool aerobics;
- To dance;
- Organized games and more.
Nice outdoor pool with La Langosta swim up bar
There is also a full service beach bar and an additional bar in the hotel lobby. During our stay we never waited in line for the bar service and the staff are always there to take your drink order directly from the beach or on the hotel premises.

Fresh towels all day at the beach towel hut
There is a beach towel hut by the pool where you can get fresh towels at any time of the day. Again, we never once came across a time when there were no fresh towels available.
I even remember some of our all-inclusive cruise deals where the pool towels were used up and weren't available all day.
We had never experienced this level of service in one of our previous 3½ to 4 star hotels!
All-inclusive restaurants at Park Royal Ixtapa Resort
The main buffet restaurant, La Veranda
Don't worry about going hungry at the resort. There is plenty to eat all day and into the evening.
From the well-stocked buffet in the hotel and on the beach to the open snack bar El Jardin by the outdoor pool, you can enjoy delicious fresh meals prepared daily by the hotel chefs.
The resort also offers a nice a la carte experience at the hotel by prior reservation, which is only referred to as El Italiano Restaurant.
This is free for guests who prefer a more formal dining experience during their stay.

From beautiful rooms, free drink service, excellent food and service to activities for all ages, I know you will enjoy your stay as much as we do at Park Royal Ixtapa!
