This was our first experience of Club Med and we had an absolutely fantastic time! Still wishing we were there. We went with our children (15 and 9) and our daughters friend (also 15). They didn't join any of the clubs mainly because the majority of the children were French. But they didn't miss out. Our son met friends around the pools and we hardly saw him and the girls joined in alot of the fun and games around the villagio pool. The watersports were great and tennis and lots of other activities for all.
Considering the hotel was full, it never felt horrendous. You could always get a sunbed (we were mainly around the hotel pool) and there were lots of available beds on the beach. We stayed in the front of the Hotel which worked well. I think its probably the quietest side. The only downside is that the showers are very weak.
The shows were brilliant - very professional. The GO's made the holiday though. They always had a smile (considering they get little sleep) and made you feel welcome. Our special thanks to Antoine (Circus) - he is a lovely man with a lovely heart, full of life and always smiling. Alban (Manager of Passworld) - again a lovely person with lots of energy, very helpful and great fun. Laurent (water skiing) - he met us at the airport and instantly made us feel welcome with a good personality and great at teaching waterskiing. Kevin and Faustine (Tennis) - both great personalities and good fun. They were all in the shows and at the clubs afterwards - I don't know how they do it. We miss them all.
The chefs and waiters were also very friendly and helpful especially Sergad and Haman. The barmen around the Hotel pool bar were great too. Food was wonderful and they do different themes each night. White night is very special - the organisation is excellent.
We quite liked the fact that it was mainly French - but everyone speaks English. Wondering when we can return!
We would definitely recommend this resort as its good for fun and relaxation.
