Please let me start by saying that I work at a family and golf resort owned by my wife's family in Upstate NY (Great Northern Catskills). They are a very successful resort and we know a little bit about what a family resort should be and shouldn't be.
This place was SOOOOOO much more than I thought it would be. The setting is incredible. The first couple of days the beach had a bunch of seaweed that had washed onshore. With that said, there was an entire crew that worked for hours each day to rake and bag the seaweed off the beach. The next few days the seaweed subsided and it was non-existent for the rest of the trip. This is an example of the length they will go to make everything as nice as possible.
We have 4 kids under 10. Obviously this was a concern of ours. After being there for a few hours we were so pleased to see that the entire resort was geared toward their safety and entertainment. I can not say enough about their staff, especially Olga and Alma who worked literally day and night with energy and enthusiasm.
Because of the Mini Club Med and Kids Club Med options, my wife and I were able to enjoy tennis lesson with Jose Luis!! He was the perfect coach/instructor for that setting.
I went into this vacation vowing to NEVER to let my children go off with anyone much less take my eyes off my children. Believe me when I say there is no need to worry about their safety. I am a vigilante father when it comes to my kids well being . You know where they are at ALL times. There is a schedule and is followed to almost the minute.
FOOD - I can honestly say that the food selection is probably the best I have ever seen. The food was fresh, well prepared and the variety was second to none. It was clean, the staff was incredibly helpful and so pleasant at EVERY meal. Even when the resort was getting full towards the end of the week we NEVER waited for anything.
We stayed there for 7 nights, 6 days and not once were we disappointed by any meal, activity, interaction with a staff member, or timeliness of an event.
The pool is huge! The beach couldn't be closer or cleaner. The restaurants are extremely well run and efficient.
Another great byproduct of being there is the opportunity for you and your children to meet people from other countries and cultures. My second oldest daughter met a girl who spoke only French. My daughter speaks only English. I can't tell you how many hours they spent with each other while teaching/learning the other language.
The weather is really amazing at this time of year. Warm, but not hot. The water was warm. I'm sure the summer months are scorching, but at this time of year it's amazing!
I can't imagine vacationing anywhere else after being here.
Again, I recommend this place with a firm knowledge of how resorts should be run and operated. This one passes with flying colors!!!!!
