Dear Sandy, 


I recently had the opportunity to visit the Krystal Resort in Ixtapa and get familiar with Ixtapa and Zihuatenejo. 
The Ixtapa area runs along 26 kms of hilly tropical coastline with dozens of sandy beaches and scalloped coves.  The average temperature is 78.8 degrees and the sun shines approximately 340 days a year!

KRYSTAL IXTAPA - The Krystal Ixtapa is located on one of the best beaches in Ixtapa's hotel district.
IXTAPA - Once a coconut plantation, Ixtapa boasts the high-rise hotels, all-inclusive resorts, air-conditioned restaurants and upscale shopping you associate with Mexican beach resorts and luxury travel.
The property features a great combination of modern architecture, hotel accommodations, cuisine, and Ixtapa's most spectacular swimming pool with its own waterfall and water-slide!


The Krystal Resort is located on a beautiful beach!

 The junior suites are the rooms on the diagonal and very spacious.


Great pools for kids and adults

Breath-taking sunsets


The resort offers 3 restaurants and one a la carte which is the famous Bogarts Restaurant. We were fortunate to spend an evening at Bogarts.  We began our our  evening with an amazing caesar salad prepared at our table by our waiter Reynaldo, followed by a homemade sorbet, main course of chicken codon blue, then an delicious  flambaed crepes (which were out of this world) and finishing off the perfect meal with a Mexican coffee.

The fantasy of "Casablanca" is brought to life at Bogarts Restaurant.  Enjoy the international cuisine, piano music & exotic, romantic ambiance of one of the most memorable film classics


Christine's Disco was so much fun, but I think we are getting a little old for this!


The hotel is built in a triangle so every room has an ocean view



It was hard to say good-bye to my colleagues at the Krystal Ixtapa, as they made our stay memorable and an awesome experience!  I will miss my office at the beach as I head back to Calgary! 

Of course the first part of your job as an agent is selling the destination.  It was great for me and my husband to get out and get to know beautiful Ixtapa!   

Travelers include the neighboring beach towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, in the state of Guerrero, as favourite destinations, but that's where their similarity ends. Visitors to this area will encounter two decidedly different vacation destinations just 6.5 km (4 miles apart).

Zihuatanejo, on the other hand, evolved from quaint fishing village to backpackers' hotspot to today's incarnation of winding streets of galleries and folk art shops, small boutique hotels and palapa-style seafood restaurants serving the catch of the day. Backpackers still holiday here, but share the experience with honeymooners, snorkelers, swimmers, and cultural travelers who appreciate "Zihua's" laid-back vibe and postcard-worthy scenery of rocky cliffs, sand and sea.
