I was lucky enough to secure 1 cent each way airfare on Spirit Air (taxes came to $80 roundtrip...) so I went looking for a place to stay for a week in May. I am a diver and Club Med was running a special for $900, so I booked it. This included a $100 voucher, so that paid for one day of diving. This also included your Club Med membership, good for one year.
I am a 50 year old single woman, and while there were lots of single people there, most were 25-35. I don't think there was any man there my age. I had fun, though, thanks to friendly people and the Chief, Eduardo, who made everyone feel welcome.
Check the weather before you go. It rained the entire week I was there. I just checked weather.com for PLS and it said with the humidity it felt like 107 degrees, and I concur! Take bug spray, and itch medicine with you. Be careful to avoid walking around 6 at night when they spray for mosquitos and there is nowhere to get away from the toxic spray! Take good books to read because after the dance lessons and snorkeling trips, there is not much else to do in the rain. Also, keep in mind you can get sunburned on cloudy days, even under the palappa, so wear sunscreen!!!
I enjoyed my night at Le Mer restaurant. I loved the scallop appetizer. At the main restuarant, the white and chocolate breads are not to be missed, and the spread of desserts for the French night was worthy of a photograph. Yes, you can get tired of the food, but try something different every night and this will help.
The rooms are nothing to write home about, but there was plenty of hot water and lots of fluffy towels. It took a while for the air to get cold in the room. My suggestion is to leave it on cold all day to help maintain the coolness. TIP: The lightswitch for the light above the bed is hidden in the headboard.
There was always something happening around the pool: latin dance lessons, aqua gym, trivia, etc. You can be as involved as you want to be, or have solitude when you wanted at the beach.
The diving is good. There are some terrific walls there and tMatt and the dive staff is friendly and helpful. The day after I dived, they saw a shark. Be sure to bring a computer if you have one, as they will let you buddy dive if you use one.
All in all, Club Med is hard to beat on this island for all that you get. Provo is expensive. I think when you consider all that you get in the all-inclusive: food, drink, room, lots of things to do, it is well worth the money!
