My wife and I go to all-inclusive resorts for years. I ahve been to over 20 in my life. Now with a two year old, we are looking for fun with the little one, and all the luxury amenities for the adults. Club Med Ixtapa was perfect.
We went four nights.
Check in and airport transfer were perfect and fast.
Our room ws in Iguana Area (very close to the action).
The Room wasspacious and clean and well stocked.
The food at the resort was very good.
The difference is that,...as opposed to the standard "Kids Club" at most resorts, this resort has different clubs for different ages - such as 0-1, 1-2 years old, 2-3, 3-5, etc. The activities are age appropriate. The G.O.'s are reliable. The areas are cleaned, and parental requests are honored. We have a 2 year old and he loved it. There are plenty of playgrounds and pools for kids. ovely beach , clean, no big waves...
Goodweather in January. The pool water was warm, .
I would recommend walkie talkie's - in general, the resort is nothing to compare with the mega-resorts on the Riviera maya , but still it makes life easier, ...and you can leave a walkie talkie with the Kids club to call you if your child is having a rough time.
I found the food to be very good.
In summary, for the all-inclusive connoissuer, but now, ...the father of a toddler, this was the best..It might be pricier but it was worth it as you get all the amenities geared towards kids of all ages but still the luxury all-round treatment.
I would not go here if I was just two adults beacuse it really is more meant for the families....Two adults together alone might enjoy a "couples only" resort, and club med has some of those in different places.
Club med is a world ahead of other standard 4 and 5 star all-inclsuive resorts in catering towards families that travel.
I highly recommend it.
