Whether you want a daytime snack by the pool, something more substantial for lunch, or an evening meal with a view of Vista Hermosa Beach, Emporio Ixtapa serves it all. At Condimento Restaurant, classic Mexican dishes celebrate the best of the local cuisine, while Arrecife Restaurant serves up freshly made pastas and pizzas. Next to the beach, Sunset Restaurant cooks fish and meat to your liking, always presented with a glorious coastal view.
Arca Lobby Bar – A chilled drink at the end of a perfect day is one of life’s great pleasures. So head to Arca Lobby Bar to settle beneath a uniquely domed ceiling and decide on an expertly crafted cocktail from the bar’s lengthy list. Then sit back and relax to a soundtrack of carefully curated music or have a sing-a-long at the twice-weekly karaoke sessions.
Arrecife Restaurant – In the welcoming cool of a breezy Mexican evening, this slightly more formal restaurant serves up classic pastas, risottos, and pizzas. Dinner here is perfect, whether inside the restaurant or out on the terrace under the stars.
Condimento Restaurant – Begin your day with breakfast at Condimento Restaurant by choosing something light and fresh or asking the chef to rustle up a heartily cooked dish just as you like it. If there for lunch, go with classic favorites such as fried plantains, rice and beans, and chilaquiles, along with à la carte international cuisine as well. Three times a week, you can head to the garden for the fun themed nights.
Snack & Pool Bar – When you decide it’s time for a break from lazing by the pool, swim up to the bar or take a seat underneath the palms and order appetizers and a round of cold drinks.
Sunset Restaurant – Try the Surf and Turf buffet or choose your favorite fish, meat, or shellfish and have it expertly grilled before being served with a fresh salad. Just be sure to take a moment to watch the sun go down over the horizon, before indulging in a rich dessert.
Treat yourself to a revitalizing wellness package at Oriental Spa to be at your most relaxed as you head out for live music and nightlife fun. If you find yourself looking for more action and adventure during your stay, there are so many water sports available on site or nearby, such as sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, water skiing, and windsurfing.
Take a ride along Ciclopista, a family-friendly bike path that passes through animals’ natural habitat at a relaxed pace. If you are a golfer, make the most of Emporio Ixtapa’s special guest rate at Club de Golf Marina.
With a central location at Palmar Bay, Emporio Ixtapa puts beach life at your doorstep. Just 10 minutes away, you can explore the charming town of Zihuatanejo – or Zihua, as the locals call it. Meander along the cobbled streets of the former fishing village, stroll the waterfront walkway — known as the Paseo del Pescador (Fisherman’s Path), beautifully lined with palm trees and restaurants — or browse the 250 boutiques of the Mercado de Artesanías (crafts market).
Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport is 3 mi / 5 km from the hotel.
