Spent 11 days at the Vic. We arrived and got a room in block 2. It was very musty and did not have the 2 double beds I requested. I was given a room in block 5 right by the beach. The room was very plain and the bathroom awkwardly small.
The food was good as was the service. The pool was a but outdated but clean and there were always lots of lounge chairs. The grounds were very clean and beautiful.
The entertainment was good. The best entertainer was Melanie who played with the kids. You could tell she loved her job. My kids really liked spending time with her. As for the rest of the entertainers? They had their favorite guests that they talked to. The shows were great! My kids loved the mini disco with Melanie.
Now for the down side. There was a group of French speaking guests and it appeared that everything revolved around them. They had their own entertainers called club lookè and they only spoke French. All activities were done in French as were some of the shows. Their kids entertainer only played with the French kids and when she ran the mini disco my kids did not understand anything as she spoke no English and during the games did everything so that her French girl would win. I felt like a second class guest as everything was catered to the French.
The best part was the close clean beach. It was great for the kids as well as adults. The pizza at the snack bar was also delicious.
