We love coming to Zihuatanejo and have stayed at Club Intrawest (Embarc) on everyone of our 6 visits. We've stayed in 2-bedroom, 1-bedroom and studio suites. This is the first time in the Lookout Studio. It's great for a couple and the view is stunning because you are at the very top of the resort. However, being at the very...

However, the resort is starting to show its age. Crews were competing maintenance while we were there but more is constantly needed. Cracks are appearing in the paint both...

I've been to 6 Intrawest destinations, and after having been here twice, I can't wait to go again. The resort food is delicious, there's a lot of security and their beach is amongst the most pristine that I've been to. There aren't too many costly add-ons, and the view of the ocean from your room is the cherry on top....

We went to Embarc, formally Intrawest on HGVC points. This the last year this will be available to us using HGVC. The staff is excellent, from the first we arrived giving us the towels to freshen ourselves and water to drink. As others have said there are a lot of stairs to go to the pool area and beach. The...

We spent a week at the end of June/July. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were nice any very large. We used points from Interval International last minute and didn't get a room with much of a view. If we wanted to pay for an upgrade we could , but it was pretty expensive. One thing we...
