The Good: see long list below. The Bad: see short list below. The Ugly: me in a bathing suit. First let me stipulate that we were at the resort exclusively for scuba diving, so my comments cover only that aspect and the overall accommodations. There are many other activities offered which we did not take advantage of. The good: Excellent,... More

We just returned from a week at Columbus Isle, rested and refreshed. It is one of my favorite Club Med villages, and though a bit worn, still quite comfortable. I was pleased to find that the food quality of the alfresco White Night was significantly improved as compared to prior visits, and also liked the addition of the custom salads... More

The setting is really spectacular and the hotel is going to be renovated in the next months so it will soon have a much better infrastructure. There were fun activities for everybody in the family and we had a big range of ages with very different interest, but everybody had a great vacation. Scuba, snorkel, sailing, yoga, beach volleyball, kayaking,... More

Columbus Island is a great location, a lot of sports to do, good food, outdoor activities and a great place to rest. However we were expecting a better service like we had in Maldives Club Med, but it was really poor.

We have been there 2 times, it is an amazing place, the food was amazing, the night time activities really entertaining, I just love it,,,and also the island is really private, it is not like a lot of commercial islands which makes it even more amazing,,,

We spent a week at Columbus Isle. The weather was perfect ( I mention this because the day we left, and for several days thereafter they had torrential rains!). We sailed everyday, went snorkeling, and basically enjoyed the low-key ambience. If you're looking for shopping, and a wild night club scene, this is not your place! However, the bars were... More

Being Club Med Gold I have to say after so many different Clubs Columbus comes up as being tops. My deluxe room ( minus shower etc conditions) had the best view ever and was clean. The amazing part of this trip were the GO's from sailing like Mamadou, Maximilian , and the other 2 from Senegal whose name I cannot... More

I am a teenager who spent two weeks in Club Med Columbus Isle with my family. They were hands down the best two weeks of the year. First of all, the place is beautiful. The sand was soft and the water crystal clear and filled with fish. Next, so much extraordinary activities were offered to us. We could water ski,... More

This was our 8th Club Med experience and our first at this resort. My wife and I spent 2 weeks at this great location. It was just about the perfect island retreat we were looking for. Getting off the airplane we encountered one of our more unique customs and baggage claim experiences, all I can say is that it set... More
