John is right about Zihuatanejo. It is a nice town, but Ixtapa (right next door) is not for everyone. Think hi-rises on the beach. There is a GREAT hotel in Zihua called La Casa Que Canta, and another very nice one down the beach called Villa Del Sol. La Casa Que Canta is expensive but (IOHO) worth every peso. When we arrived, the maid had drawn a picture on our bedspread using flower petals. The restaurant is very good. I can still remember the lime pancakes for breakfast.
