Dear Salary Guru,

I'm not sure if you wanted to know about Mexico, Cancun, or our vacation. I'll do the latter.

Club Mediterranee ( my spell-check refuses to let me type it correctly) was perfect for our three generations. When we were younger Club Med was for youngies, singles, newly weds etc. Now they have changed their image.

The accommodations were very comfortable. The day-time pleasant weather enabled you to do whatever you wanted, beach or pool. For the oldies ( my group) there were many enjoyable programs and a daily show. For the younger marrieds there were a lot of physical and out door sons in law loved sailing, table tennis,water polo, a trip to the island...etc. For the children there were different aged "camp" the 11 year old did not have to be with 7 year old brother etc.

We met for an excellent buffet breakfast, casual lunch, and then you could choose between a more formal steak-house-type sit down served dinner, or a huge and very varied buffet dinner at very comfortable for kids, sophisticated French food for adults, ordinary American stuff, Mexican specialties...and French style,..a cheese table for my cheese loving husband! There was a third restaurant on the premises we didn't use.

Our daughters and sons in law really appreciated the freedom to be alone, and yet also family activities as desired. There was no hurry or pressure on anyone. The kids would LOVE to go back if Gran and Opa would spend the money!!!!!

Hope this helps. We have heard the one at Ixtapa is not as much fun.
