“First Time Club Med VERY Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

What a wonderful treat and surprise. We traveled myself and my two children and we joined several other friends and their families.

Our first thoughts were our friends were there so no matter what we would have a great time. The level of cleanliness and maintenance at the facility is exceptional. The rooms are good but average but you don't go for the room itself. The overall experience really exceeded our expectations.

I tried activities like kayaking that I would not normally have tried and the signature Aquagym which was really a great workout and lots of fun.

Our children (6 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed kids club. It was an easy sell for me to the kids. "You are welcome to stay with me in the morning but do not think that by noon you will have gone sailing, flying on the trapeze and tennis." They spent the morning in kids club on a few days and then we had great time at the beach or pool in the afternoon.

We took two excursions the Coba/Cenotes where you go to Mayan ruins and swim in the underground caves and sailing/snorkeling half day trip and everyone enjoyed. The excursions as explained to us by one of our guides are set up to meet the standards of Club Med sort of as Disney Vacations to different locations; so you are getting the same level of service which was wonderful and should allow you to book excursions if you choose with confidence.

The food was good, suggest taking advantage of table dining a few times for dinner just for change. My other suggestions were we used more sunscreen at a high SPF than I expected or brought (especially with so much time in the ocean or pool). Also there are in room amenities like shampoo but there is no conditioner and with sun and salt water/chlorine you will probably need it!

I am still absolutely unclear on the variations between room types. We had a room with an ocean view which looked practically identical to my friends' room directly across the hallway with a very slight difference in square footage by the sliding glass door.

I called for turndown nightly, which we needed with three of us showing etc. However, when we changed rooms for the last two nights I again called for turndown and was told in no uncertain terms that only certain rooms could get turndown. The second room again was pretty identical to the first the fridge didn't have 6 soft drinks as the first and it had the slightly less square footage by the glass door to the balcony.

The only challenging area that we continuously encountered was the front desk/reception. We had issues with our door locks and had to go back for new keys 3 times. I felt they could have been much more proactive and when I was calling from another room come there themselves instead of having to hoof it over to the desk. My friend needed internet service and was told that she could not use the internet since her folio of extra charges was not signed and just had a credit card. She explained that her daughter was asleep and it was a nominal charge for the internet could they just let her use it and first thing in the morning she would sign. She was told no. It just seems whatever request was presented to the front desk it was not possible or at best not a proactive stance on how they could help only advising us that they couldn't or not making the effort. Again, minimal concern in that generally once you are checked in you are done. And even with this experience with that particular area we would happily return to this CM or try another.

Of the many good experiences I think the best had to have been the announcement that Rodrigo (GO at Aquagym) and native to Mexico City gave on Friday of our stay which is often the last day for many. He gave a very sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of us for staying at Club Med and for visiting his country. Rarely do you see such genuine thanks expressed and it was charming.

This is a great resort for both couples and families. The tennis pros were wonderful. Very friendly and excellent instructors. The week we were there there were a lot of tennis players, but even thought the lessons were packed, both my husband (an advanced player) and I (intermediate) got a lot out of them. The snorkeling is easy, right off the beach and a good selection of fish. Food is very good. The property is beautiful.

Room Tip: We paid a little extra for an oceanview and I think it was worth it. We didn't stay in the Jade...

Dear dobbs36NewYork,
Thank you for this Club Med Cancun Yucatan review. We are pleased to read that you and your husband -- although at different levels -- were able to take advantage of and learn much from the tennis lessons. Furthermore, we’re very happy you were satisfied with other elements of your stay, such as the snorkeling, food, and property overall. Once again, thank you for your review, and we hope to see you and your husband in the future.

We stayed at Club Med Cancun for the second time after 5 weeks of being home in the cold and yet again it was great!
This time we stayed at Jade, the 5 trident space. It was a beautiful accomodation, the pool was so peaceful and with the beautiful weather our holidays were just perfect.
But not only these ingredients made our vacation wonderful, also the GO's & GE's made sure our stay was amazing.
All the GO's & GE's (also very important to mention) were extremely friendly, but there are a few ones who are worth a special comment!
First of all I want to start with the team of the boutique:
-Shanel: she is just a wonderful, beautiful girl! She's very very friendly & sweet and she does her job really well! The first time we went to Cancun, we entered the shop to buy a hat for my mom and Shanel welcomed us so warmly and wasn't pushy at all, which is really nice
-Ana Belen: the second time we wanted to buy something in the shop Ana helped us out! She also did her job so well! Thanks to her we walked out the shop with a beautiful pink cowboy hat, ready to hit the Mexican party! Ana is a great GO, she also always dances the crazy signs & was every day adorable!
-Massimo: he's just soooo funny! We laughed every day with him and his performances in the shows were awesome! He's a super GO: always very friendly & enthousiastic in his job! Also with the coffee games with the Michael Jackson show he was incredible! He knew everything and made us win the quiz!! :D
I'll continue with my appreciation for the sport GO's:
-Margot: she's extremely good at her job! You can see she does it with her whole heart! She's so motivated and enthousiatic that you want to be in her classes even though you're not sportive at all (this was our case)
Also her appearences in the show are worth a mention, because she dances like a real pro! She's also enormously friendly and smiles all the time!
-Rodrigo: the first time we were at the club, Rodrigo was in the mini club team, so we only talked to him at the nightclub. We already knew he was a social and motivated GO, but this fact was even confirmed more this time. Now he switched from mini-club to landsports. He gave us magnificent aquagym classes! The day after my muscles were sore, so that means the classes were intense and terrific! He was motivating us all the time by yelling yeah yeah - oeh oeh! There was a lot of variation in his classes, which we liked a lot! We're sure Rodrigo will have a beautiful career in Club Med, because he really has a great (Club Med) attitude and spirit!
-Josh: our chief of landsports! He did a great job! The first time we were in Cancun he was our aquagym instructor. He's just like Rodrigo very talented to give the classes and he motivates his 'students' all the time! Just like all the others mentioned, he's a super GO
-Johanna: she's a lovely girl! Even though we just went once to the waterski she was superfriendly all the time! She's always so enthousiastic!
It's thanks to her that I got out of the water with the wakeboard! It's not easy, but thanks to her directions I managed to do a whole tour of waterski after only 2 failures! She's a wonderful waterski instructor and a magnificent GO in general!
-Casey: although we didn't sail nor surf, he was very friendly when we saw him around in the club! We got to know GM’s who like to surf and they told us that Casey was the right person to learn it from. We’re not sportive, but if we would decide to take surf of sailing lessons, we would be happy to have Casey as our teacher!
-Sergio: he’s a brilliant GO! Always helpful, always ready to answer questions, always saying hi to everybody and last but not least always dancing the crazy signs in a fabulous way! He always goes for it and that’s really amazing to see! During waterpologames he made sure that little girls didn’t get hurt and in the meanwhile he was guarding the goal. His chief, Maravilha complimented him: a good GO is always accompanied by a GM. We couldn’t agree more: Sergio is a marvelous GO and it was a pleasure to accompany him as a GM.
-Maravilha: the chief of sports and entertainment. He’s a splendid GO! Always happy, always smiling, always encouraging people to join the fun (crazy signs, coffee games etc…) When he was presenting the crazy signs you got a real club med feeling, which is a good feeling!
He’s got certainly the capacity to become a chief of Village, because he knows his job really well. No doubt that one day we’ll go on holidays to a club med where he will welcome us as a ‘chef de village’. Also worth the mention: his performance in the clap show was extraordinary and incredibly funny!
Then I would like to compliment the bar team:
-Sasha: she’s a fabulous and fashionable chica! Always smiling, always working really hard!
-David: very good bartender, friendly all the time! Great guy, great GO
The mini-club team:
-Diana: she’s a wonderful girl! Always happy and supernice and when you see her with the kids, you can tell she really cares for them!
-Jeff: such a sweet GO! With the kids he’s splendid and as a dancer he’s also impressive! His Michael Jackson act was stunning!
-Coco: always kind and smiling, she’s a very social and interesting GO. We knew she was South-African and asked her a few questions since my mom has to go there for her job. She was so sweet and willing to answer all our questions and in the end she said she would be always available to answer more questions, this gave us a warm feeling
The other GO’s who are worth kudos:
-Mariana: always smiling, she gave us a very warm and professional welcome and made our stay at Jade even more pleasant and also her performances in the shows were marvelous
-Leilanie: she was so nice all the time! We had so much fun with her during the coffee games! Always ready to help!
-Armando: he’s adorable! Such a lovely and social GO! He made beautiful decors and every time we saw him in the club he was sooo kind and positive
-Jaime: he was incredibly friendly and he was also always present at the crazy signs and the nightclub, which really is a good thing
He welcomed you always in the restaurant very professionally and made you feel at home immediately.

Then we would like to thank all the beach boys for the good service! They were all magnificent!
Also Santiago from the main restaurant was wonderful! So friendly, so social!
The team of the bar in Jade was splendid! The people who drove the buggies were very helpful and friendly!
We’re very thankful for our clean rooms and the clean club thanks to all the cleaning ladies! They did a great job!
And last but not least we want to congratulate the chef of the kitchen, because every day the food was extraordinary!

There are just two more things I would like to say: we thought it was a pity that we could only sit with one GO at a table. This is a new rule, but I have no idea what the purpose is, because all the GO’s are so nice, you want to eat with them all, which is easier when you can sit with at least 2 GO’s at a table!!!
The only thing that disappointed us was not an act from the GO’s, but from the GM’s! We thought it was such a pity that nobody stood up to give the GO’s a standing ovation after their smashing Michael Jackson show! They really deserve a more positive feedback from the guests!

THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING! YOU GUYS WERE FABULOUS, WONDERFUL, BRILLIANT, MARVELOUS, EXTRAORDINARY! IT WAS REALLY SUPERDUPER!

We'd had enough of DisneyWorld and set our sites on a warm beach vacation for our March break. After researching many beach vacation options with that would satisfy us and keep our kids (10 & 5) happy, we found it in ClubMed Cancun. It was the heavenly turquoise beach we've dreamed about. It's a little more expensive but worth it for the MiniClub, endless activity choices (kayaking, sailing, trapeze, tennis, water skiing, etc.), top notch beach options, on-site snorkeling, safe and friendly atmosphere. We aren't 'foodies' and would never choose a vacation based on food but it was so good.....too good. The MiniClub for kids 4-10 and 'CarWash' for teens 11-17 is what really sold us. Houda and the GOs were fun, energetic and caring. They organize activities for every age group which are a blast. In addition to daytime activities, they have a number of dinner and after-dinner activities each week which allow parents to enjoy an upscale quiet dinner. They get the kids performing, trying different sports, interacting with other cultures and so much more. Plenty of GOs to accomodate different ages and interest levels. You can do as much or as little as you want and it's all included. The GO (Gracious Organizers) who work there are bright, friendly, well traveled, enjoy their 'jobs' and want to help you enjoy yourself..."As you wish". Kids even said it was better than Disney. No lines or obnoxious people! My only negative is that the main pool was not heated, no big deal to us. Upgrade to Jade if that is super important to you or swim in the warm ocean. I could say so much more, but the bottom line is that this an ideal option for the active family looking for a peaceful yet fun vacation.

Room Tip: Jade area has heated infinity pool away from main part of resort.

Great GOs from all around the world. We were looking for French speaking entertainment, this is the place. Lots of activities for everyone. Excursions are also very well presented, a little more expensive than other places we have been before but it worth the extra money spent. Over all, exceptional value for the money spent. Only negative comments, their internet connexion is not stable (lots of disconnect) and is expensive.

Room Tip: ocean front !

Everything was said about restaurants, bars, so I won't bother going there. Also, I'm pretty much sure you don't care about the weather either. So I'll concentrate on several other sides.

This is our second time to CM Cancun and we really enjoyed our stay. This time we have booked Jade (the 5 trident area of the village). Being at Jade has some privileges : private pool, private bar, very personalized service etc. For us, it was also very convenient since :
- in the morning, close to water sports
- in the night, close to the night club

From the moment we stepped out of the car, we were greeted by all-time-smiling Mariana, who took care of us during all our stay. What a nice person.

We traveled with our 10yrs old son which was offered to chose between the kids club (9-10 yrs) or the Car Wash (11-14). It was a nice attention. He choosed his age range club, but actually didn't spent lots of time there. He instantly made friends in the club and then they hang around as a group, the day and evening long, doing their own activities. Useless to say the club is very very safe, there are private security guards everywhere.

Being in Cancun, we wanted to do a nice tour, without however spending useless time in places we weren't interested of. So we went to the excursion desk and were greeted by Denis, who offered an excellent service. He put together a private trip, and organized exactly the way we have planned it, while providing his own very helpful insight. Days later, we found this very spacious Lincoln Navigator brand new, waiting for us, with a driver and a guide. A word about the guide (Adriana) : priceless !!! During the whole tour, she gave us so much information about Mexico, Mayan culture and so on. She is a real encyclopedia. If you have the chance, ask for her service, she speaks perfectly french and english. We chosed to visit Tulum, swim in the Cenotes and stop to Playa del Carmen. And still we were able to get back by 17:30.

Some points that may need reviewed by the club :
- Night club : except for tuesdays (mexican) and thursdays (brazilian), it's quite calm. Very few GOs there.
- Restaurants : there is a new policy allowing only one GO per table. I'm not sure I understand the reasons, in Punta Cana the rule was 2 GOs per table, which is way better (in my oppinion). Not only we get to know them better and faster, but it also allow them to more easily find a table.

Some other good points now :
- very nice animations at the main pool (even though we had our private pool, we prefered to go to the main pool at noon)
- awesome cocktails at Jade, every monday
- nice Chef de Village, quite present (Aziz) and : what a good singer. You MUST see him performing Lionel Richie

Finaly, I cannot end this review without mentioning some of the GOs we really hanged with :
- Josh (Land Sports Manager) : I love you brother. Keep being who you are. I loved the discussions we had at the night club
- Alex (DJ) : thank you for everything you have shown me, I loved being by your side and seing you at work
- Hassan : you are such a nice company and we really appreciated your natural way of being
- Maravilla (Chief of Sports) : we still laugh thinking of Dorito and his mom !! awesome show
- Coco (Mini Club) : we enjoyed every moment we spent together, with your numerous skulls and crucifixes ;).

That's it folks, I wrote a lot, but there was a lot to say.

Cheers,
Andrei Manitiu

PS. Did I mentioned that during our stay I have booked same hotel next year?

We had a terrific 9 day family trip with our preteen children. We went with another family and the children had a ready made group when we arrived. It is really the perfect family holiday.

Aziz runs a tight ship, and the GOs keep the mood fun and active, all day and night. He is also very funny. It is a lovely place for people who like being around other people and like being active.

The boys spent most of their time at the ski dock (thanks to the wonderful ski-dock GOs, who probably saw more of them than we did!). Ping pong, poker, bocce too. The girls had a more mellow time, swimming in the waves, sailing and reading. They loved the shows (especially circus). Perhaps because there were 3 of them, and 12-13, they didn't want to join into the scene at the Carwash - maybe next year.

As a vegan & vegetarian, the buffet was fantastic. So many options, and most of the food labels indicated ingredients. The vegetables were always fresh. We ate at the a la carte Mexican restaurant (Cazuelas) 2x but it was not as good as it could be. Cazuelas is severely understaffed and our poor waiter could barely manage, and was embarassed to receive a tip, apologing for his service. However, Cazuelas at lunch is wonderful, with the best salad bar.

The adults had a great time - we played tennis, ran, swam, walked the beach, did fitness classes, waterskiied and wakeboarded, snorkelled, sailed, kayaked etc. We had lovely lazy evenings in the bar.

The property is gorgeous with the best location in Cancun - right on the edge of the beach, with a rocky portion with some lazy iguanas, that feels a million miles away from the busy part of the beach. The property is lush and spacious. Even during March break (with the exception of some tennis lessons which had 12+ people on the court), the place doesn't feel packed. And while Cancun is overbuilt and a bit ugly, the beach and turquoise blue ocean with perfect waves (which you have to walk down the beach to find) is hard to beat.

We did one excursion to Coba. The guide was terrific and the trip was varied - a visit to the Coba ruins (and a climb up the pyramid), lunch on the beach in Tulum (so beautiful) and an afternoon swim in the cenotes (underground river). A little bit of everything.

The only negative was the booking experience. We booked 2 rooms in October 2012 for March 2013 and made a request to have the rooms beside one another. The booking agent told me no guarantees and tried to upsell me to a family room, at a significant price increase. I called a couple of weeks prior to find out if we had the rooms beside one another, or even in the same building, but the person on the phone rudely told me that I should have taken a family room, and he could not tell me if our rooms were together. I found the entire experience stressful and unnecessary. The rooms were beside one another, with an ocean view in the Granate building (a perfect location). It seemed that the whole reason was to make us spend more money on the family room (really just interconnected rooms).

The family we booked with (within minutes of each other) were able to get the family room, at the same price, but were told they had to move halfway through their stay. They too had rooms beside one another, but were forced to move, mid-week, which was a hassle.

Another family we met booked earlier (in the summer), paid much less, but said that they are rewarded with rooms on the lagoon near the MiniClub each year.

Also, we booked our flights separately. If we booked through the Club Med website, we would not have had direct flights. We had perfect WestJet flights, booked separately.

Room Tip: We were ground floor in Granate - on the ocean side. lovely to walk out on to the grass and see the...
