This was our third trip to Club Med Ixtapa (you can read my prior reviews) and the best yet! This is a wonderful respite from the winter and the craziness of the world. My husband and I traveled with our 19- and 14-year-olds and it was again perfect for us all. Once again we were each able to find our needs fulfilled at Club Med. I always like the campy nature of Club Med: it's not glitzy or pretentious, just family relaxation. I can say that the energy level of the GOs was higher than before and things seemed more smoothly run than before (though they were fine before, too). I didn't get to meet the Chief this time as she was at a meeting, though the very capable Estrella took over and she was great. The leadership must be excellent though, as things were very well run.

Beach: This cove on the beach is really magical - the water is warm, the waves fun yet gentle, it all feels very quiet and protected and not touristy. The chairs and palapas are comfortable and well maintained. We never had trouble finding a spot to sit in near the water. The service on the beach with Felipe started each morning beautifully with iced coffee and other refreshments during the day. He was so friendly, always smiling and kind.

Food: We love fresh vegetables, salads, and Mexican food so loved every meal at the restaurant and emerged from our trip feeling healthy and refreshed.

Rooms: We were in the Pajaro building this time in two rooms, and they were very comfortable and roomy. We had standard rooms but even then saw the ocean from them. The sunsets are exquisite.

Teen club: The teen club continues to be awesome! Israel and Alex were the best. It is great for young teens to be able to roam around and have fun that is unsupervised yet safe. I think this is the thing that keeps us going back to Club Med the most.

Activities: All of the activities continue to be great. We loved kayaking, paddle boarding, yoga with Rose & Sebastien, trapeze with Mauricio, Tonio, Charlie, Ben, and Cynthia, were all oustanding. Crazy signs and dancing at night are always fun. This is a quiet family-friendly resort and things quiet down early which allowed for quiet conversation on the terrace which was really nice. I missed the salsa dancing but maybe will have to go back for that someday!

Restaurant: I was so touched by the restaurant folks: they remembered us even though it's been almost 3 years since our last visit. They are so kind and start every morning off so nicely. Hilda, Juan, Albert, Ignacia, Samuel, and the whole group are amazing. The omlettes are the best! Eating outside at every meal is a delight.

Front desk: Salvador is wonderful - we had a complicated reservation (college student coming/going on different flights) and he was lovely and figured it all out.

The shows: I don't get people's complaints about the shows! It is just like being in camp as a kid... seeing the GOs who work with you during the day on stage is so much fun and they make it fun and funny, it isn't supposed to be serious. I heard a number of complaints in the audience and they seemed out of line. The staff is having fun and being silly so we can have fun and be silly, so we can relax. They work so hard the GOs and deserve applause. Rafa does a really amazing job. This goes around the resort: everyone does a fabulous job. They are so generous, and it is this feature that allows us to have a good time.

Overall, another amazing trip from which we all returned rejuvenated and happy. It was great family time, and I highly recommend this as a restful vacation for families.

This was our first time at this hotel and Ixtapa. The location was fabulous. The weather was always consistent and the ocean was clear.

The resort was great but older. It was clean and the staff was always friendly and helpful. We had our 18 month old son in the baby mes. We loved it and he loved it. They were structured and had lots of experience with kids. I didn’t have any concerns leaving him.

There are two restaurants, one by the beach and a buffet. The food was good but not a lot of variety.

This trip was a great fit for the whole family: perfect weather and the warmest ocean water on the pacific coast. This was our family's second time 'round with Club Med and we left wanting more. Ixtapa is a smaller, more intimate experience than Club Med Cancun and more relaxed in many ways. The food is definitely a highlight here.
We traveled with 2 other families, and 2 of us celebrated 50th birthdays. Amazingly, our wives were able to pull off a surprise private birthday dinner on the beach with the help of the catering team. Unbelievable setting, fantastic food and personalized service. Many thanks to all the GO team for making it such a memorable trip!

My husband and I have vacationed here with our two daughters 6 times over the years, and it continues to be a great family vacation. The girls (9 and 6 years old) have a ton of fun in the kids club - the GOs are attentive and energetic (Nitzia, Vale, Anais, and Matt).

The food is excellent. The white chocolate bread in the morning and taco station at lunch can’t be beat.

The rooms are fairly basic, but we don’t really spend much time inside so we are fine with that.

We felt totally safe at the resort. We didn’t spend any time in town, though, so can’t comment on other areas.

Ivan - sports GO - made our stay this year particularly fun and memorable. He ate with us every night and entertained the girls (and us adults!) with magic tricks. We love him!! Other GOs that were great included Cynthia (circus), Juanito (tennis) and Javi (archery). We felt like we were part of a big family by the end of the week, and we were sad to leave.
