Second visit to this village at exactly the same time of year. It's still good, very good, but Club Med used to be excellent at the all inclusive holiday (they were the pioneers) and now I can see signs of cost saving.
Firstly the bar staff were under so much pressure and complained to us that they just didn't have enough staff to manage. On more than one occasion non bar staff had to come and help out.
The food although plentiful and highly enjoyable was not quite up to the same standard as Club Med used to be. This did not affect our holiday at all- it was just something I noticed.
Our hotel room was clean and a good size but there weren't enough useable hangers in the wardrobe- just a minor irritation but nevertheless noticed. It was also noisy- high heels from upstairs clattering around and babies crying.
In the old days Club Med would have a few current films broadcast through a special channel on the TV- they've gone too. Again, it didn't affect our holiday, but noticed just the same.
All in all we had a lovely time but it just doesn't feel like an upmarket holiday anymore. And this shows in some of the clientele too.
Sorry Club Med but you used to be so much better.
