“Family paradise in Ixtapa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2008

We are telling friends about this Club Med and recommending it to all the families we know!! From arrival to our departure a week later we had nothing but great experiences at the Kids Club, Baby club, restaurants, reception, bars. Great staff...in particular the G.O.'s who were all fun, energetic and upbeat.... everytime we saw them with our kids everyone was laughing and having a great time.
The food was really outstanding and the fact that much of it was offered buffet style in the main dining room makes it even more impressive! The salads were always crisp, the breads and pastries fresh and delicious and the selection of hot entrees too plentiful for us to sample it all!
The property has recently been renovated and is extemely clean and well maintained. The pool area is family friendly with a large adult/lap pool and another shallow pool for kids. (That doesn't take into account the additional pool in the baby club for the wee ones and the kids only pool in the Kids club...
The two older kids learned how to sea kayak, sail, swing on a flying tapeze, hip hop dance and cook..they played hockey, ping pong, learned yoga and swam, they played mini golf and tried archery, they built sand castles and every night of the week there is a family show, several of which the kids participate in.
The beach is clean and was never crowded during our stay. The family suite had a bedroom with a King size bed, another bedroom with 2 twin beds and an adjoining bathroom which was prefect for our family of 5.
We had an awesome vacation and look forward to returning to Club Med Ixtapa.

  • Liked — spacious rooms/ family suites a great option
  • Disliked — mattress on the King bed very hard

The Club has just received a $25M remodel & it is like a brand new resort. The General Manager was extremely friendly & managed a perfect staff. All the amenities from the room to the food were great. The child care was outstanding.

I wish there were more opportunities for exersize. More hikes, bike rides, fitness classes. ect. aside from that it was great.

Fantastic family vacation.

This is a fantastic location for families with children. We had a 2.5 and a 1.5 year old and they went every day to the baby / petit club. Heather Dawn in the petit club was absolutely wonderful with our daughter who is a little shy and usually likes staying close to her parents in new surroundings. Heather made her extremely comfortable holding her hand, having lunch with her, playing with her etc. At the end of the vacation it was very clear that we didn't rank very high on her priority list any more. More generally, all G.O.s (Club Med speak for employees) were extremely friendly making this a very special experience.

Renovation turned out very well. Club Med has changed tremendously over the years. We have been on many occasions to Club Meds all over the world and after the renovation this Club has achieved a completely new standard (think about a 4 star resort at the minimum). The rooms are very nice (with great A/C, very comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, flat screen TVs etc.). Most of the other facilities have been updated as well: new restaurants (one just for the children), new baby / petit / junior clubs, new beach bar, new kids pool and (what we liked the best) big beds and couches on the beach and around the pool (yes, this is not a typo).

The restaurant is now enclosed (and air conditioned) but there is still outdoor dining available with amazing sunsets, the food is much more high-end than it used to be (the chef did an amazing job).

The new chef de village (Jean-Marc) seems to be everywhere in the resort at the same time talking to guests and making sure everything is perfect (we wondered when he actually does the administrative work, probably at 3 a.m.).

We have now been every year in Ixtapa for the last 3 years, while we always had a wonderful time, this year was above and beyond our expectations and we will definitely be back next year.

This was our first stay at a Club Med, not our last ! We have gone to Mexico for vacation for the last 14 years, this was definitely one of the best. The accommodations were very comfortable. The rooms were not the biggest, but the comfortable beds made up for the lack of space. The food was excellent. We ate at the buffet most days as the menu changed daily. Some of the better items included lamb chops, beef wellington, paella, bbq ribs... and yes this was the buffet. The deserts were incredible, from a fresh scoop of ice cream to tarimisu (not sure about the spelling, but the taste was the best) everything is made by the pastry chefs daily. I have read alot about all-inclusives and there dinner menus. You will not be disappointed at this resort. I can make this statement since we always stay at top end resorts.The pool is large enough to hold activities and still accommodate lap swimmers along with loungers. The separate kids pool is adjacent to the main pool in case you are with a group of all ages. There are also covered cabanas around the pool area for a nap or a good book. The activities are endless and include basketball, bocce ball,rollerblading mini golf, soccer, tennis, archery and these are just the ones we did asthere were many more. The shows were O K to great (the 80's show). They even had 2 poker tourneys. The service was great as the GO's were everywhere and very friendly. The village cheif (Jean-Marc) was always around to ask if everything was perfect, and it was. The kids club is by far the best kids activity filled day we have ever seen in a resort. My granddaughter would wake up in the morning and ask if it was time to go to the kids club. We were a little unsure about how they would treat her so we constantly peeked in on her, by the 2nd day we were totally comfortable with the GO's in charge of her. They even have babysitting (pajama-time) till 1am. There have been many bad raps about all-inclusive resorts on the Ixtapa forum, if they gave this one a try there attitude would be totally chaged. Book this resort and have the time of your life !

we just returned from an 11 day stay and every day was wonderful.
our 1 yr old son was well cared for and entertained all day long by the great staff at the baby club. each and every person doted on him and made me feel very much at ease.
all of the resort facilities are very well done. the rooms are nice. while they are not luxurious, they are modern, updated and very clean. my only complaint is that it would be nice if they had an area rug of some sort in the room. something a little soft under the knees of children not yet walking.
the resort itself is beautiful and has an expansive and amazing beach.
the staff - all the GO's were very friendly and helpful.
whatever you are into for activities, they will have it.
and if you are there to simply relax, they won't make you feel pressured into anything.
the food was great. i am a VERY picky eater, but i found plenty of things i enjoyed.
be sure to check out their spa. services are worth the prices. i had one of the best massages ever.

i can't say enough about this resort. it's great for a family vacation where everyone actually comes home relaxed. we met so many wonderful guests and GO's that added even more to an already great trip.

  • Liked — central location within the resort
  • Disliked — no soft floor surface for crawling baby

We couldn't have asked for a more ideal family vacation. The mini club and petit club were an amazing way for our 2 and 4 year old girls to spend their days. The food was excellent and varied. One can do as much or as little as desired. The GOs are warm and welcoming, making every guest feel like a VIP. Thank you for a wonderful break from our dreary winter!

This was one of our best vacations ever! We have 2 sons aged 3 and 1 1/2 and they also loved it. Room was great, had family suite, the boys room and ours was separated by 2 sliding doors, 2 doors to the outside and our door went right to the grass where the boys could play. Laundry was included in our package. Food fantastic, staff sooo nice, activities unbelievable! 2 huge main pools,one was 3 feet deep the other was the adult pool and was nice and never crowded. Also pools at the baby club med and mini club med sites. We were able to drop the boys off at their own club meds and they had a great time, staff there was fantastic, always saying hi and remembering their names at all times! So much to do, mini golf,tennis,roller blading, archery, also exercise classes, yoga,power walking and beach volleyball, and a ton more that I have forgotten. Weather perfect every day! We would go back in a second!
