Recommendations for language schools?

Hey folks -

I’m seriously considering coming back this summer to attend a Spanish language school. Does anyone have any experience with any and have a recommendation? I’m not so much into the home stays with a family. Thoughts?

Have you tried Chichen Itza Language School? Chichén Itzá | Language School

My daughter takes their online classes but I know they have immersion classes as well.

Somehow it's already been 10 years, but I had a wonderful experience at Playalingua. In looking at the website, it appears they have nearly the same offerings that they did when I was there. I stayed onsite at the school for the first part, and then in a hotel with my parents my last week. My room was clean, with a private shower/bathroom and a small balcony. Breakfast was included each day and was excellent. Classes were just in the morning, allowing time for beach, activities, shopping, etc. in the afternoons. Many of us also got together for drinks or dancing at Kitxen in the evenings. It's located in a great, central location that is close to both the beach and "the action" that Playa offers. The building was monitored at night, and I didn't ever feel unsafe during my stay.
Though it was 10 years ago, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, based on my experience.

I've read good things about this school. They don't offer very much information on their website however!

Awesome! Did you find it worthwhile? Did you learn a lot? I guess what I'm asking is, is what you learned enough to justify the cost. LOL

I had a pretty strong background in Spanish before attending, so much of it was repetitive for me, however there were many other students with little to no prior Spanish experience and I remember them feeling like they were learning a great deal.
