Club Med Cancun Yucatan

Reviewed June 25, 2014

We have been to a couple of Club Med's and by far this facility and staff are five star. Starting witht he plane fairs to Cancun we found several excellent flights and saved money. There was my wife and I and one child and one teenager. There was so much to do for everyone and the food was out of this world. We had an issue with condensation in our first floor room and they immediately moved us up to a second floor overlooking the Lagoon where we could watch the water skiing. The snorkeling was by far the best you could ask for. There is a protected coral reefe on one side of the resort that has an abundance of beautiful coral and fish. They taught us how to sail on both a hobbycat and windsurfing and we even took lesson on scuba diving at no additional cost. There was a cost if you wanted to go deep sea diving but we were not ready for that. My son did go and loved it. The night time shows and kids program were outstanding. This resort was recommended to us by a friend and I have thanked them several times over. This resort is my top choice of all the "all inclusive" resorts that we have been to and I highly recommend this facility for a great family vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second level. The humidity is high so keep your airconditioning running at al...

Was very concerned about going to a Club Med. All inclusives often have bad food, too many people and crappy rooms. That was not the case here. Food was excellent and always fresh, people were VERY friendly and the place was well maintained. Activity choices are outstanding and we all really enjoyed the experience. We paid extra for the fancy accomidations and there was very worth it. All in all a great time was had by all.

Overview: Traveling with teens (15 and 17) can be difficult. They often pretend to be jaded or disinterested and it's up to the parents and staff at the resort to bring them round. This vacation fits the bill. The resort is very well organized with something happening at virtually all times of the day and night. The GO's are at the center of it all, presenting such a cool example of what it means to have fun that the kids were singing and dancing along with them by the middle of the week. Both my children remarked that they wished they'd done the "crazy signs" earlier since it was so much fun. They were unconsciously humming the tunes as we left... literally music to my ears.

Food: The buffet is wonderful. We took small portions and tried everything we liked or were curious about. It's a great chance for the kids to try new dishes. Frogs legs were a hit. The two restaurants you make a reservation at can't really compete. We ate at each of them once. It was fine but after the bountiful harvest of the buffets which serve gourmet dishes every night, it felt restrictive to be forced to eat only one dish.

GO's: Great folks work at this place. They seem to really love what they do and they make the trip more fun. We had several meals with various GO's and it was amazing to hear about their lives, where they're from and how they ended up at Club Med. They're interesting and engaging. Karim is a gem. Very sweet, very earnest and very fun. Our family was really honored to get to know him.

Accommodations: Perfectly fine. They aren't world class (unless you are in Jade maybe?) but they are very comfortable, kept immaculate and all anyone would need when there is so much going on outside the room. We didn't stay in Jade but the location does not seem to be as ideal as the rooms that open directly onto the beach.

This resort is very well organized and obviously run by folks with real experience handling whatever the guests throw at them. We had two ridiculously large groups of High School students come while we were there (all told, around 200 kids with "chaperones"). The first day was mayhem. The kids were mostly 18 which is the legal drinking age in Mexico and they had just graduated from HS. Their behavior was alarming to say the least, they were drunk, loud, rude and took over the whole place. By the end of the second day the GO's and Aziz had made a few structural changes (opening a second bar to move them to, giving smaller cups to the kids, creating a separate dining area for their group, etc.). They also had a few conversations and sent one kid home. The results were magical, it was suddenly just a fun place to be again.

Hats off to the whole Club Med Cancun Yucatan staff. Well done and we'll be going to Club Med again for sure.

We stayed at Club Med Cancun for 6 days with our four teenagers, and all gave it a stellar review.

As others have stated, the rooms are comfortable but not fancy. We were grateful that the staff was willing to put an extra roll away in our second room so the teens could have one room an we could have privacy in the other. We were rarely in the rooms at all--- except to sleep and change. The bedding was comfortable, and the bathrooms quite nice.

The beach was fantastic. Beautiful blue green water! Even though the resort was nearly at capacity (the new family buildings haven't opened yet, though) we had no trouble finding lounge chairs under thatched umbrellas or cabana beds on the sand. We really didn't have a significant wait for any activity, and no matter what we did the GO's were enthusiastic and supportive. The beach staff was always at the ready with cold drinks and smoothies brought to our lounging place on the beach.

The buffet was huge, and offered something different every day. There were plenty of choices for everyone. We don't have little ones, but I noticed there was even a "baby food of the day" plus a blender available to mash up whatever else the children might choose. Our family loved the many fresh fruit choices and the great breakfast buffet the most.

The teen club (called the Car Wash) was a huge hit for our kids. It was an easy going experience that made it easy to meet other teens and participate in all the activities the resort had to offer. Kids could come and go as they wanted, and my kids especially appreciated that there was no pressure to do anything you didn't want to--- but everyone made you feel welcome. My only disappointment was that we had a hard time getting our kids to want to hang out with us because they were having so much fun with their new friends. While we didn't have kids in the mini-club, I couldn't help but notice GO Wanny (aka Chicken Nugget) who was extraordinary with the little ones. Truly one of the most energetic and engaging people I've ever seen with young kids. Later in the week, he joined the Car Wash and my kids just adored him-- as well as everyone else there including Hoshi, Giovanny, and Jaime.

All of the staff are pleasant and friendly, and work so hard. I was especially impressed by the bartenders who were kept very busy while we were there by over 100 recent high school graduates who came on a senior trip. We were really impressed by the Club Med Management that quickly responded to the change in culture at the Village by opening a bar specifically for the teens (drinking age in Mexico is 18) which allowed the rest of the resort to maintain its family atmosphere and still allowed the grads to have a great time too.

It was a fun, relaxing trip. Certainly not a cultural experience in any way shape or form. However, if you are looking for a fun beach getaway with something to offer every member of the family with low stress for a good value this is a great place to go.

I would highly recommend Club Med . The staff was friendly, the food was good, and the activities were plentiful. Our young kids really enjoyed Mini Club. I was apprehensive about going at first as I do not like beach vacations, but I definitely enjoyed myself.

We have stayed here for 2 years in a row now. The rooms are roomy and spotless and the views are breathtaking. The staff always treats us with kindness, courtesy, and with the highest level of professionalism. The restaurants are terrific and the same for the pool and beaches. A great value-a 5 star resort for the budget conscious as it is all-inclusive. highly recommended
