Absolutely loved this two week time in Ixtapan. The elevation is over 6,000 feet so the air is crisp and clean, and the setting is like a tropical rain forest with beautiful landscaping and water falls. August is considered the 'rainy season', but all of the rain occured at night while we were there, so every day was truly perfect weather - high 70's for the day, and high 60's for the evening.
The spa staff became like family, and many friends were made around the tables at meal time. The morning began with a brisk hour walk with yoga, pilates, tennis lessons, and aerobics available throughout the morning. The spa treatments throughout the day were heavenly - massages, facials, wraps, etc. were part of the package.
This was my first time at Hotel Spa Ixtapan, but it will not be my last. This was one of the cleanest places I have every stayed. Also, many of the people I met were there for their 15th or 35th time!!
