We spent 8 nights in an ocean-view family suite. It was spectacular. We walked right out our patio door to the beach and spent the majority of our time lazing on the comfy cabanas drinking cold sparkling waters and yummy virgin cocktails. Boogie boarding is a must, and if you can, bring your own. The ones at the gift shop break easily. We also bought sand castle equipment that we left behind for the next family.
We were 100% safe and 150% taken care of by the fabulous staff at Club Med. I want to give special props to Candy, our personal concierge, who went well-beyond just being nice and helping us out. She is truly an amazing woman, and smart as a whip. If you need it, she'll make it happen. She arranged everything from babysitting to dolphin-swimming, but mostly she became my friend. I hope to see her often in my life. Martha took great care of the messiest room ever. Seems we could have filled a sandbox with our tracks!
I also want to mention how great Amador was with our needy family when it came to serving beverages. We adored him and thank him for putting up with us. Hey, if you want a FANTASTIC massage, speak to Raphael (?), who will fix you up in a jiffy with the best at the spa.
Finally, just want to thank the staff at the day camps for everything. My kids (ages 3 & 7) had an amazing time and did everything from sailing to trapeze to tennis. I am especially fond of Eugenia who works with the younger kids. She was amazing with my family and I wanted to bring her home! And, thank you to Allyn (hope I got that right), the assistant manager of the camps. He saved our lives by personally putting together an fantastic lunch for our trip home. He is a great man. Hey if you ever find my son's Adidas soccer shorts, send them (and our missing Netflix movie) our way.
I have a few wishes for our next visit. First, PLEASE get on-demand movies, or at least dvd players, and wireless internet for the rooms. Next, my family was pretty tired in the evenings and would have loved the option of room service. The food at the main restaurant, though, was definitely worth the effort. Finally, my little one got a pretty good case of bedbugs. Heaven only knows how since the room was always immaculate!
Thanks to everyone for what my husband called "the best vacation of his life."
