We have been to many Club Meds (we go once a year) and Colombus Isle was the best experience so far. Better than Punta Cana and Cancun and much better than Florida. Though we have 2 kids (13 and 10) and though there is no Kids Club, we all enjoyed it very much. Beach: spectacular in all key rspects. Magnificent... More

I'm trying to figure out who writes the glowing 4-5 star reviews. Maybe they get a good rate on return-trips? First, I've never tried Club Med before, so maybe it's just the whole concept that isn't for my family. Beyond the whole Club Med philosophy, here are a few basic problems. The staff was not friendly or helpful. One young... More

Very beautiful property. The rooms are a little dated, but comfortable and clean and I understand renovations will be coming soon. All of the staff from the front desk, to the maintenance people, to the kitchen and dining staff were friendly and professional. We did have problems with sand fleas despite taking the recommended precautions....no beach towels or beach shoes... More

This was our 3rd visit to Columbus Isle (we had planned to go elsewhere, but the cost was such a bargain that we decided to repeat here instead). We stayed in early March, and had no problems with sand fleas - and saw only a few guests that had any bites on their legs. I think the fall season is... More

My family and I really love this Club Med. Along with Martinique, I think it's the best in the Caribbean region. Comfortable rooms, friendly but not overwhelming GOs, excellent food, beautiful beach, terrific snorkling and diving, and a nice mix of GMs-about 50% French, 25% American and 25% Canadian. (It helps to speak a little French). The dive center is... More

Personally, I have travelled a lot and usually stay in a 4 mostly 5 star hotels. I must say that this place is one of the the most beautiful and amazing experiences I have had. The beach and location are very peaceful. The pure Caribbean calm water is what you want. The customer service of all the staff is impeccable.... More

We were at Columbus Isle the first week in March - what a fabulous vacation. The water was clear & turquoise, the beach was beautiful & I'm happy to say we saw no evidence of sand fleas! I don't know if it was a language issue, but the Chief of Village (JC) never said more than 2 words to us,... More

My wife, twin 18-yr.-old daughters, and I just returned from an amazing vacation at Club Med Columbus Isle. Truly this was one of the very best vacations we have ever had. For us it was near perfect.
