Our group consisted of myself, wife two kids 16 and 12, mother sister-in law and her boyfriend. We went scuba diving daily which could not have been better, great visibility, beautiful healthy dive sites and a great dive team. As far as all inclusives go none really compare. The food at club med resorts is in a league all to... More

The beach is breathtaking...there are no other words. As you fly over the water from Ft. Lauderdale you can feel yourself relax. The colors... More

When my husband told me he wanted to get away from everything and enjoy a great beach, I thought about Club Med. They have the best part of beach wherever you go. They charter the air from FLL and it is from Saturday to Saturday. We had a great time, the beach is absolutely stunning, the colors of the water... More

I can't put into words just how fun, relaxing, and enjoyable our week was. The beach and water has to be one of the most beautiful in the world. The colors change minute by minute and it is amazing just to watch nature's show. Given the heat, the temperature in the pool and ocean is perfect. We spent many a... More

This resort is a unique blend of remote tropical paradise and sophisticated international entertainment and cuisine. The white sand beach is over a mile long and the Club is the only resort on it - paradise. The Club itself is energetic and fun. We loved choosing activities based on our mood, from fun seeking to relaxing on a quiet secluded... More

My wife and I spent a week here at the end of April / beginning of May. It was my 11th Club Med vacation, and our third time in Columbus Isle. Still, this trip was definitely one of my best Club Med experiences. We have previously enjoyed the quiet low-key setting, the excellent sailing and snorkeling, the gorgeous beach and... More
