Great holiday! Easy to get to from London either flying or apparently by car.
We expected Club Med in France to be very French and to try out our French. In fact, staff (called GO's) were keen to make everyone feel welcome and practise their English out on us. We met 2 British GO's who worked at the bar (Hello Sam & Jodie!) - both brilliant. Many other English speakers around.
Food - great, especially the local seafood and regional specialities. Some queuing for certain dishes, but plenty to choose from.
Accommodation - fine, comfortable, quiet, clean where we were.
Loads of activities (sports, beach etc as per website) plus fab pool party, 10 year resort anniversary party, Dynamo type magic tricks at the bar, dancing and entertaining GO's, (Tito on mic) and great ex pro footballer who had us in stitches with his famous footballer impressions. Hope we haven't missed too many people out...
Compared to other Club Med resorts, we met loads of people at this one (other Brits & French). Sun loungers around the pool being packed in was actually a good thing! But there's a feeling of openness to the resort in general.
Take plenty of insect repellent and a pump for lilos etc as the one in the shop is rubbish. Only gripe is with the pricing of the holiday, ridiculously expensive over school summer holidays until last week in August, then it was full to capacity apparently for the first time....
