“Such a fantastic holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We arrived home last night, full of stories and memories of our time in Ixtapa. The Club Med experience is perfect for our family ie kids have fun and lots to do, we can relax or be active and spend time together. The setting is beautiful and the suites well worth the little extra. But what really makes the holiday is the people from the ladies in the store, to Stephanie the Zumba teacher extraordinaire, the amazing circus acts and show, Daniel the Brazilian Mr Bean and sports co-ordinator and Remy the Village chief they all made it special and went that extra mile!
My daughter actually didn't want to leave! We will be back!

Room Tip: Suites are def worth is for the private beach and your own reception with coffee, snacks and drinks...

It is an unbelievable experience. This is our 2nd year there and it just keeps on getting better. We will also be there next year for our third time. The shows were better especially the Circus show. The food higher quality if you can imagine that being that its great already. The staff, what can I say unbelievable. At your back and call at all times. Daniel S. the sports GEO was incredible, funny, entertaining a true pleasure to be around. And what Joe Machado did with the circus show was phenomenal. What makes this resort all that it is aside from the spectacular location, bright sun and splendid beaches is the Staff. The Geo's are extremely friendly, entertaining and pleasing. Its truly difficult to place into words what 7-10 days here can do for you. It is a must experience. From the moment you arrive at the Airport to the minute you return it's 1st class all around.

We stayed at Club Med for a week in June 2012. Our family is typically into more adventurous vacations (camping, skiing etc), but we were looking for a really great relaxing vacation, that would allow us to recharge and our 3 small kids to have fun.

Based on friend recommendations and TripAdvisor we selected Club Med, Ixtapa, and this turned out to be a great choice. The child program is absolutely fantastic. The staff is nice, warm, and passionate about working with kids. We dropped the kids first thing in the morning, and had the entire day to ourselves to eat, read, relax, and do several different sports (swimming, beach volleyball, soccer, sailing).

Some other things:
* The sunsets are unreal. Go for a wal on the beach during sunset!
* Food is fresh and of good quality.
* You can rent a boat and go to the Island in front of the hotel. Great for a day incl fresh seafood lunch


Overall highly recommended!

Super pleasant staff, great food and excellent beach. Stayed in a suite and walked out the bedroom door to the delightful beach. Room was well decorated and in perfect shape. Computer in room but so what. It is escape time.

Room Tip: Go for the suites. Other rooms may be fine, but this is a bargain for near private beach time.

Thank you Club Med for providing the perfect atmosphere. Our family reunion consisted of 20 somethings to 90 years old. I think we participated in every event. The GOs were so kind and enthusiastic, and we particularly enjoyed getting to know Christian, the chief of the village. He was
so gracious to us, and easily got us into the Club Med family fun feeling! We are already planning out next Club Med experience.

I traveled with my family to Ixtapa for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed the Club as there was always something for everyone to do. The food was delicious and very plentiful. I was particularly impressed with the Chef de Village Christian who was very gracious and made our stay wonderful!!! He is very friendly and makes everyone feel special.

This was our first family trip and I can't imagine it going any better. From the moment we arrived at the airport, the Club Med staff was literally there with open arms and this was just the beginning of our stay. From our first steps on site, we were greeted and given a complete tour of the grounds. This trip can be whatever one wants it to be. I enjoy sports and had such a great time going from tennis in the morning with fantastic instructors to volleyball on the beach. Soon after pool sports such as water basketball and water polo. Table tennis in the afternoon, with trapeze and archery to follow. After great theater and dance shows at night, poker capped the evening. The only hard part was choosing which events to enjoy as I only played soccer once. My wife took the relaxation side of the trip, enjoying pool and beach side cabanas under the sun. We were able to have adult time with the evening pajama club services. My kids had such a great time, the baby club and petite club staff made them so happy to be there, they wanted to go as soon as it opened each morning. The staff became like old friends after just a couple of days, so warm and accommodating. I could go on and on, but will leave the rest for you to discover. This vacation can be whatever you want it to be and I've already recommended it to many family and friends. The food was exceptional and again, from eating very healthy to indulging on the guilt free vacation, they had it all. Our room was spacious with ocean views and the kids enjoyed there own space with privacy doors. Every need was taken care of by the staff and it all worked so smoothly. I can't forget the release of baby turtles to the sea, which will live in my families memories forever.
