We spent 10 days last end of December 2012 with our 3 children in a Deluxe Family Room.
Everything in this club is dedicated to children : a true heaven for them.
The beach is very nice, clean and the Pacific ocean with big waves where you can jump in and have a lot of fun. We always found some place without difficulties to relax and enjoy.
The swimming pool is not very big but as a lot of people is more on the beach, you can always find some place to stay, even in this very crowded period.
The resort itself is very nice, not so big and our room facing the ocean was well maintained with a nice shower room and two sinks.
The beds were good and comfortable. Furniture is ok but this is Club Med, service is average but this is not the Four Seasons!
Club Med is a resort for people who stay OUTSIDE of their rooms.
The restaurants are good also with a large choice of food at the buffet for the main restaurant.
The New Year's Eve was very recreational and we all had a lot of fun. All the staff try to be nice and invite you to enjoy your time / have fun. They do their job very well.
We did try the SPA : massages were excellent in a very beautiful place.
GO are very kind and very welcoming. If you want to stay on your way just in order to relax, they leave you in peace. If you want to have more fun and contacts, they are always on your way to have a nice talk with you.
A lot of activities are available and you pay your stay for them.
Our children really loved their holidays, they had a lot of fun with and without the mini club.
During our stay, there were major customers from US and Canada as these countries are in a shorter way with almost no jet lag.
Ambience is cool, casual and not snobbish at all. You can dress the way you want, very few followed evening dress code (more intended for GO as I noticed) but it was nice to see how most of people try to be quite smart without any arrogance.
All in all, I would truly recommend this Club Med for travelers with children looking for a very nice spot, with an excellent location and very safety place.
