The resort is located in a relatively new area of the town in a beach called Playa Quieta (calm beach) due to the calm waters. The nice Isla Ixtapa is in front of the resort, stopping the huge waves from entering the bay and providing the calm waters where you can swim, sail or practice other water sports.

At the airport, a Club Med representative was there to greet us, we were driven to the resort (30 min. ride - the transfer is included in the fee, they'll either send a van if there's a large group arriving or they'll get you a cab) where we were greeted by a GO (that's Gentile Organisateur, the term that indicates a staff member at CM) who gave us a refreshing towel and a cold drink while he took us for a tour of the resort and explained how everything works, then we were taken to our room, where the luggage was delivered in no time.

The all-inclusive formula entitles you to eat and drink whatever, whenever. The food in the main restaurant, El Encanto (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner), is delicious and various, like at lunch: cheese bar, salad bar, pasta bar (which of course we avoided), ice cream and desserts bar, grilled stuff (sausages, burgers, etc), the delicious Mexican specialties like chicharrón con Chile, chicken in guajillo sauce, fish Veracruz style, etc. And the nice women making tortillas and tacos in a special station are great. Every evening there is a special theme for the food and the entertainment: Brazilian, International, Italian, Mexican, etc.
