Club Med Ixtapa Pacific

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This was our fourth year of staying for a week in early December with our now five year old. For everything that's available, a week at this Club Med is truly a vacation for the whole family. Our son had the best time ever in Kids Club with GOs Ellie Boom Boom, Capt. Chicken Nugget, Julie, Augustine, Faust, Fer and Martine. The GOs take such a genuine interest in the kids that we never had to worry that our son was having fun and meeting kids from around the world, like French/German Melody from Brittany, France.
My wife played tennis daily with GO Sergio. Fabien was always attentive to make sure we had whatever we needed and was helping me improve my French.. A minor issue with our bed sheets and pillows on day 2 was immediately handled without a problem.
The food continued to amaze us with its quality and variety, never a dull meal. The deserts and pastries were fantastic. Unless you're exercising three hours a day, be prepared to gain a few pounds with the great food and plenty of drinks. The rose wine was surprisingly good at dinner.
This has become such an effortless vacation that I look forward to it every year for some great R&R. From the welcome at the airport, van to the resort, welcome drink and greeting, to all of the well-prepared and well-presented choices at every meal. Who would have thought that mashed potatoes could be so tasty?
I'm not sure if there's anything significant that I would change or improve. They could possibly sell a more varied assortment of Club Med "logo" wear, t-shirts, polo shirts, etc.. but that's a minor point.

Travelled between November 27 and December 4, 2013. First time at the club and to Ixtapa. Quality of this club med was excellent. Wonderful food and activities. The GOs were all so friendly and I was so impressed at how hard they all worked. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Especially great was the tennis program. Sergio is an amazing tennis GO and always sociable and smiling off the court as well. His assistant Omar was so kind and helpful too. This is a top notch Club Med resort as I have been to many.

Room Tip: I stayed in Cielo which was very nice and extremely quiet and clean-really satisfied with this room.

We were there from December 12-21st of 2013. First time at a club Med. Our Experience echoes much of the great reviews below. Kids were excellently entertained, beach was beautiful and food was out of this world. None of the previous all inclusive resorts we attended come close.
We were only recently converts to an all inclusive experience and try to switch it up every year at least. But we'll be back to Club MEd Ixtapa for sure. The staff really makes you feel like one of the family and even today, two weeks later, we're still singing the songs and comparing everything to the experience we had. WAY TO GO!

Room Tip: go for rooms on the second floor or higher if high traffic bothers you. no elevators so you'll h...

We were there for only 4 days from Dec 28 to Jan 01- We spent the New Year there.. What a great evening...Food was amazing, the shows incredible and the Fireworks simply magnificent.
This is a family oriented resort though, but If you want some quiet time, try to book the Suites in the Sol section...Definitely going back

We had the privilege of visiting the club during the holidays with our 2 kids and their grandparents. The food was excellent with a variety of dishes even for the most picky eaters i.e kids ! The club is located about 20 minutes from the airport in a secluded beach in front of Ixtapa island.

The beach is beautiful and the water is very warm - our kids spent most of the day in the water and never complained. You can kayak or sail (no fee) in the beautiful bay in front . There are no rocks in the water and small waves enjoyable for kids. The sand and water are darker than in the Caribean but the view with the mountains in the background is amazing and the warm water is incredible.

The club also has plenty of activities for the hyperactive such as tennis (very nice courts ), basketball, soccer, trapeze, zumba, salsa and toning classes lessons, aquagym, a gym, a spa, climbing wall, beach volleyball, archery etc.

The mini-club was great. The G.O. are very dynamic and know how to take care of kids even if they're shy at first. The mini-club show was exceptionnal given they had very limited time to prepare. Special thanks to Josia, Elie-boom boom, Wannie, Martine and the always energetic Morgane.


We will definitely visit this club again !

We had the most memorable and fun family vacation at Club Med Ixtapa returning a week ago. We travel extensively with our children (ten and almost 14) and have always preferred independent travel. It was a last minute trip and I chose Club Med as I didn't have time to plan our usual type of trip. The experience greatly exceeded our expectations even after reading numerous reviews. My husband and I went to a Club Med "before children" 15 years ago and had a ball but we never considered returning with children. Now we are planning to make it an annual trip! The GOs made the experience extra special. These talented people work tirelessly all day at their specialty jobs and entertain guests all night six days a week. We were so impressed with all they do. There are a few who especially stood out. Gretel, HR by day and dancer/entertainer by night, was super hospitable to us and made us feel like family. We look forward to keeping in touch with her. Felipe from the circus was charming and attentive to our every need. We enjoyed dining with him and watching him dance in the shows. Our children wanted to make sure that I gave him our address to visit us in San Francisco! Diego, funny and talented in so many ways, is also a stellar sailor. We were very appreciative that he took time to enhance our daughter's sailing experience by teaching her to sail the catamarans. Patrick and the circus team were supportive teaching my husband the trapeze and were very encouraging to our children. Chloe made every effort, every day to get our shy teenage daughter to participate in all of the fun activities she and Giovanni planned. She never gave up! Wanny was a like the "Pied Piper". All the children adored him and followed him around. He also made a huge effort to encourage our shy son daily to participate in the fun kids' program. Sergio is a talented tennis player and we enjoyed getting to know him. We only wished that we had more time to play tennis! We were so busy! I enjoyed Jacqueline's Zumba and circuit training classes in an open air hut overlooking the beautiful beach. We always got a kick out of Pedro's and Logan's colorful water aerobics. We never tired of the Club Med theme song - it was so energizing. The nightly entertainment from Michael Jackson, to circus performances, to Brazilian dancing to Mexican entertainment never ceased to amaze us. The kids are still talking about the beach party where we sipped from coconuts, danced under the stars and even participated in a limbo contest. My husband and I felt years younger dancing the night away with the social GOs after we put the kids to bed. On the last night, there were even fireworks and champagne by the pool! The meals were delicious and exceeded our expectations for an all-inclusive resort. We tended to frequent the custom stations such as the salad bar and nightly specialty food stations. One night, the staff went to the monumental effort to set up dinner on the soccer field overlooking the beach - the GOs dressed elegantly in white, there were strings of party lights, white linen table cloths and even the chairs were dressed in white! Magical! It looked like a wedding! It was a very memorable evening. The beach setting of the resort is divine and the grounds beautiful and well-maintained. The rooms, while not the Four Seasons, were spacious, colorful and clean. The entire week was simply pure unadulterated fun and we are already planning our next trip!

Club Med Ixtapa: better food than 9 yrs ago.
New dances etc.
Super Waiter on the beach: Fernando
Prperty was still clean and had security to help out- altho, no one was an issue.
Trapeze was a highlight of my 10 yr old and the 17 yr old found friends, even among the 10+ kids that we were there with...super fun.
Great to have a family outing as there is something for everyone.
Found a guy on the beach that rented us Paddleboards: highly recommend that CLUB MED invest and get some in their sports department!
otherwise great vacation. WHEN DO WE GO BACK.?
