This beach is really quiet. Ideal for not experienced swimmers as well as for more expert swimmers.

An ideal spot to expect a few hours enjoing either sun or shade. Food and drinks are OK. Prices are ok, not cheap not expensive.

This is primarily Club Med and a few other private condo type buildings. Nice walk - clean and relatively quiet.

Clean sand and fun waves to play in. No load music and no too many people. I was worried that the sea may be cold but no way. The sea was like a hot bath. Pure joy to relax and swim on this beach.

This beach was adjacent to my hotel. I walked down the service road and public access lane beside Club Med. While there were many people on the beach, they were spread out and I was able to hang out on my own. The view of the rocks was great and there were lots of pelicans there. Kids seemed to enjoy...

Beautiful walk down Playa Quieta beach. Nice little restaurant to stop for food / drinks on your way down. Make sure to go here at least one evening around 6:45 p.m. for the beautiful sunset.

This is a small beach bordering the property of Club Med. It is very quiet, very few vendors, and the water is usually calm. It is really lovely.

Beaches are shorter than some (e.g. Nyarit Vallarta) but are still very nice. Warm water with some sandy stretches ; can be rough at times but is swim able. Not really a snorkelling beach

If you want good service and good food, I recommend you go to a different resort! ! Same food served 2 days in a row . Should bring your own lounge chair if you want to lounge by pool, not enough there. Learn Spanish because there is only a few workers that speak a little English. Pool bar is closed... More

My wife and I got up early to go exploring, we decided to go left from The Azul Grand to this beach. Very nice, took about an hour or so to walk and explore. Waves weren't too bad but we just went shin level. Massage hut right at start of beach.

Very nice beach. Water is calm unlike many other beaches in Ixtapa. Nice clean sand beach once you get away from the entrance from the street. Gradual drop off. I believe the beach is sheltered by Ixtapa Island which makes the waves not so high and rough. great swimming beach. We stated at the Azul Grand which is right next... More
