Visited this resort years back: Snorkle was very good- went daily, saw tons of fish. Waterskiing, bike ride, beach volleyball, sunset cruise, wind surfing, was also awesome. Some folks stayed by the pool and read a book. This club med was very nice and clean, on the quieter side compared to Turks and C. Food, was good, plenty of selections,... More

This was a standard Club Med experience for me-great service, lots to do, good food, nice rooms (not fantastic), etc. I would say, however, that the beach here is one of a kind. Definitely take out a kayak or a catamaran and enjoy the water. I was paranoid about the sand fleas after reading a lot of the reviews here... More

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

An amazing stretch of white sand beach and crystal clear turquoise waters is really the biggest highlight of the village. The infrastructure is a bit dated but rooms are large and well appointed. Get a sea facing suite in the numbers around 450 to be close to the clubhouse and restaurants while still at safe distance to guarantee quite nights... 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,,,
