Our family of 4 stayed at club med ixtapa for 1 week this January. We have a 4 year old and a 10 month old. Our holiday was spectacular. We upgraded to a family room with balcony. The room was very nice. It was spacious and offered us our "own space" away from our kids. The balcony was a nice addition as well. The food was very good. Specifically the pastries and desserts! Fortunately we did a lot of walking while there to make up for all that we consumed. We booked an in-room babysitter one night so that we could dine at the ala cart restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the dishes served and the change if pace from the "big restaurant. " The beach was beautiful and it did not feel crowded. We enjoyed a cabana everyday but we did have to get there early to obtain one. The pool was very nice as well. We swam in it plenty but preferred to lounge by the beach. Our 4 year old went a few times to the kids club. He enjoyed but wanted to be with his family most of all. (I think this was age related related.) Overall the staff go above and beyond catering to the guests. We felt completely indulged and spoiled throughout our stay. We cannot wait to return and would highly recommend this to any family for their holiday!

We just got back from two great weeks in Ixtapa Feb. 15-March 1 2014. The first week was full to capacity with almost 900 Guests
While we had to search for tables, and wait a bit a meals we still had a great experience.
They seemed to staff up for the kids clubs and while the time on the trapeze was reduced to one time per kid the circus team stayed until 6:30pm some days to make sure everyone got a catch.
Also we had to get up "early" and put towels and books on beds to reserve. I think they might have done a better job of moving people's stuff if they didn't use beds all day.

In the second week it almost seemed like a different resort. School holidays were over and the occupancy reduced to around 70% the pace just seemed to slow down to Mexico time. The GOs had more time we could do all the activities as many times as we wanted you, didn't feel rushed in restaurant. It was amazing.

The Iguana building was nice and central to activities, beach and restaurant. Rooms were clean and bedding was good. It was not like a Fairmount hotel more a better Best Western. But if your spending all your time sleeping in your room your doing it wrong.

The shows were of great quality with the circus shows and kids night my favourite. The Michael Jackson also very good. Better than Cancun last year.

Can't say enough good things about the Kids club and GO team. They go above and beyond every day. Well done! Many were club med kids and they seem to want to bring the same experience to our kids.

We also spend a lot of time with the land sports team. Jacqueline, Logan, Pedro, Cristian all played well with the kids during the day and had fun with adults during the evening.

If I had to say something bad, it would be the bugs in the evening were worse than expected. Maybe in the gift shop don't charge full resort markup on the bug spray?
All in all a very great time, I would highly recommend CLUB Med Ixtapa for any family. Our kids are 8-10-12 and loved every minute.

Our family just returned from our first Club Med experience. We traveled with our 4 1/2 year old daughter. The Club Med Ixtapa allowed us the opportunity to have time together as a couple only, and as a family.It was the perfect mix. We would play on the beautiful, sandy, child-friendly beach (soft sand, small waves) in the morning and then our daughter would attend Mini Club and play with other children for the remainder of the day and we could have some time as a couple. The Mini Club does fun activities, but really it's the leaders who make it special. Thank you to Oscar, Fer (pronounced Fair), and Elie Boom Boom. They treated our daughter like she was their own. When we left it felt like we were leaving family. Such energy and care. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, quiet. The food was excellent. I have absolutely no complaints. We booked the Junior Suite so our daughter had her own space and that worked really well. When we first arrived we were given a view of the back garden, but they moved us when we asked for an ocean view. We had to walk a little farther to get to the Mini Club, but felt it was worth it to look at the beautiful ocean. Friendly, great staff.

This is probably my 12th visit to a Club Med, but Ixtapa was very special. The location is perfect, lots of greens and a very unique Pacific Coast view and Amazing Sunsets.

The Team of GO were just perfect, from Morgan, Ellie Boom Boom, Alan , Fer, Oscar, Josia, chiwawa, and all others that took care so well of our 3 kids … this made our adult time fantastic…and they had the best time ever.

A special thanks to the team at the dinning room : The sous chefs Fabien, Germain, Chef Antonio, and all the staff… Thank you!! big thanks also to Pepe and Carlos! we were a big group and always made us big table to accommodate all of us.
The rooms were huge compare to other Club meds…4 time larger than Punta
Bar vendors were great and beach staff amazing - specially to Alexis
Thanks to the great staff at the boutique, we even got to have the best time shopping there...

the other reviews describe well this number 1 family resort
Special Thanks to the Chef of Village Mehdi and his wife Amy - you-you- you!!!

The five of us made our fourth trip in 14 years, and all of us connected with different things to love. Though the village was full at nearly 900 people, everything worked so well. The food was phenomenal. Visiting the stations where a chef makes your dish in front of your eyes led to pleasant surprise after pleasant surprise. The activities were really well-run and the sense of humor was spot on. We all got good sun and good exercise. The grounds and room were immaculate. We all want to come back.
