excellent beach. close to airport - yet no airport noise. food pretty good for a buffet style, and beautiful open air ocean views from one dining hall.
internet access is atrocious. complete rip off to require paid access by the hour and only in
in certain areas. dial up access speed in the free so called business center.
kids clubs constantly parade groups of kids shouting nonsensical phrases near the beach which is very annoying for a quiet nap on the beach.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
the snorkeling trip which leaves from the hotel is excellent and a good value
From the time you arrive you are taken care of by the excellent staff who are really eager to do so. They seem to genuinely want to make sure you have the the best time on your vacation and forget about your worries at home.
This is my first Club Med experience so I cannot compare it to other Club Med's. There are many activities to keep you entertained throughout your trip. I had a tennis lesson everyday and there were many other active events you could do. I was
amazed at how active you could be if you wanted. The staff is very friendly and the food is good with enough variety of choices. Where the club really shines is with a family of young kids. There are camps for the kids that are very good and age groups up to tennagers are included. My one regret is that I did not go with a group and I do not have kids. Going with just my wife was very fun but this place is best with a group of people or with kids.
The one negative was getting a seat by the pool. It seems like a contest to wake up as early as possible and reserve your pool or beach chair even if you have no intention on sitting in that chair for hours. Once the chairs are claimed, they will not be given up all day regardless of use.
To begin with, my daughter (17) and I had a great time. The staff is helpfull and fun! The property (at least inside the room) is a bit outdated, but kept clean and tidy. Food is good, you can always find something you'll like. There is a lot to
do in the resort, one really needs to try hard to remain inactive. Personal advice : get up, participate in anything and everything! Exceptional place for vacationing with kids. There were lots of them, but they were well engaged and not in our faces. We enjoyed the nightly shows as well. People! Please, show your appreciation and clap, the performers need your support!!! To Europeans: get out of your comfort zone, most Americans (North, Latin and South) are kind and open people even those who do nor speak French :) In other words - make friends from around the globe, it is fun and enriching! The beach is amazing. All sport instructors are wonderful! Loved the place, will be back!
