Ixtapa All Inclusive Resorts

Our review of the top Ixtapa All Inclusive Resorts. Ixtapa is kind of the Pacific Coast's answer to Cancun in that it is a government created and well kept beach resort. These towns are created tourist friendly spots and facilities and amenities are concentrated in them. Ixtapa is quite the Pacific Coast beach haven with quality bars, restaurants and the huge granite mountains as a backdrop. If you like diving Los Morros de Potosí is a must. The area is a little north of even more laid back resort of  Zihuatanejo.

The big attraction is the Playa del Palmar which is surrounded by cliffs and endless sunshine evident in the dry terrain. This part of itself lends itself to ocean adventures and a trip out on the sea to spot whales is always on the cards. There are also a series of day trips you can make to nearby beach havens and old fishing towns. Set in a quaint and lively part of the world with plenty of upbeat nightlife and restaurants. It's a good choice for an all inclusive vacation.

Club Med Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort

The Club Med All Inclusive Ixtapa resort is really on of the class acts on the block. Club Med doesn't always win out against the opposition resorts but Ixtapa they are our top rated resort. The whole place looks like a 1940s hacienda-wonderland with arches and pergolas predominant.

One of the things Club Med does best of all are their kids and activities programs, in which they have more than 40 years experience in providing quality care. They provide great experiences for kids which really help their development. And the programs are delivered  by really well qualified practitioners who often have a degree or better. Where else can you get instruction at things like Archery School, Flying Trapeze School, circus and Tennis School! This is one of the few places you can have real confidence in leaving your kids in a kids program. 

Parents are not left out either with more than enough activities to fill extended vacations, stay excited, and not get bored.

There is also more variety here at the bars and restaurants than at many other resorts in the area. Included is water, and fruit juices for the kids, as well as non alcoholic cocktails. Mum and dad get theirs with and without alcohol and can have hot beverages. We like the mix of local and international options at the restaurants. You will need to upgrade to a premium all inclusive for some of the higher shelf wines and  and liqueurs however.

What really sets Club Med apart is the wonderful work of the GO's who become like members of the family and really set the scene for memorable vacations. With such a lot of activities it may think it may seem difficult to relax but this is not the case. You take part at your will and there never seems like any pressure to participate.

Barcelo Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort

Set on the main beach the Barcelo Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort has good access to local facilities, including the golf club. But the compelling reasons to stay here are, the excellent all inclusive meal plans which feature international and local food, and a good entertainment program.

There are more than enough pools and recreational spaces. There is a hot tub as well as three family pools, a kids pool. Also for the kids there is a quality program at the kid club daily from 9am to 5pm.

Best of all for families the entertainment gets rolled out every evening with some entertaining shows.  The entertainment program here is a little more comprehensive, than some other resorts. Then don't get surprised if you see a Broadway style show, a big Mexican Party, Tropicana, A Las Vegas show, Michael Jackson and more, all in the same week.

The Spa is professional and well appointed with multiple treatment rooms, hydrotherapy, hairdresser, beauty salon, massages including hot stone, sports and more. 

Rooms are neat and have with a refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. 

Whilst the Robert Trent Golf course is close guests also can enjoy on the resort itself a couple of tennis courts.

Overall: While the resort has been around for a while they are managing to hold things together and guests are appreciating what is a comprehensive all inclusive program. A good option for families rather than those seeking an ultimate luxury experience.
