This was our fourth year of staying for a week in early December with our now five year old. For everything that's available, a week at this Club Med is truly a vacation for the whole family. Our son had the best time ever in Kids Club with GOs Ellie Boom Boom, Capt. Chicken Nugget, Julie, Augustine, Faust, Fer and Martine. The GOs take such a genuine interest in the kids that we never had to worry that our son was having fun and meeting kids from around the world, like French/German Melody from Brittany, France.
My wife played tennis daily with GO Sergio. Fabien was always attentive to make sure we had whatever we needed and was helping me improve my French.. A minor issue with our bed sheets and pillows on day 2 was immediately handled without a problem.
The food continued to amaze us with its quality and variety, never a dull meal. The deserts and pastries were fantastic. Unless you're exercising three hours a day, be prepared to gain a few pounds with the great food and plenty of drinks. The rose wine was surprisingly good at dinner.
This has become such an effortless vacation that I look forward to it every year for some great R&R. From the welcome at the airport, van to the resort, welcome drink and greeting, to all of the well-prepared and well-presented choices at every meal. Who would have thought that mashed potatoes could be so tasty?
I'm not sure if there's anything significant that I would change or improve. They could possibly sell a more varied assortment of Club Med "logo" wear, t-shirts, polo shirts, etc.. but that's a minor point.
