It had been 14 years since my last Club Med experience and I wasn't disappointed! The beach was very special, the dining was better than I had remembered and the GO's were as friendly as ever.

Still as beautiful as before, Again the sailing team was incredible from Nick to Patrice to Paul and Oscar their performance was impeccable . Columbus seems to be totally private even though it's not. You can walk anywhere on the beach and you feel that it belongs to you, though the sand fleas this August were horrible. Remi is a... More

This is my second visit to Columbus Isle. I was there in 1994, 2 yrs after it opened. The island got hit by a Hurricane last year, but the club has recovered and it is as beautiful as ever. The food is always consistent at most of the Club Meds I have visited over the years and this one was... More

I haven't been to a Club Med for 30 plus years, but arrived for a week with my two adult daughters to get scuba certified. Resort is a classic Club Med with great GOs (Oscar and Pirate get the gold stars), unbelievable food (thanks to Club Med's French heritage), nightly GO variety shows (the "spectacles"), beach bar and nightclub, spa,...

This was by far the most beautiful and peaceful Island I have ever been on! Club Med hit a home run here.

What a great time we had in the Bahamas! This is my favorite Club Med because of the diving. It is the only resort on the entire Island. That being said, Club Med has something for everyone.
