Listen I am not one to take the time out of my day to write a review. HOWEVER we checked into ClubMed Turks on May 4th. After a VERY long end exhausting travel day we FINALLY made it to our room 1038 in building B. I sat on the bed to take a moment and felt bugs instantly jumping on my skin. I very swiftly jumped up and pulled back the comforter to my surprise it was COVERED in bed bugs. The man bringing our bags just arrived at the same time. I said DO NOT BRING ANYTHING in this room. He came in and said and I quote "WOW that bed is FULL of bugs". My husband and I then walked down to the front desk and they all responded as if this was almost normal. Very apologetic, but simply moved us to a new room and stated that a claim number would be given to us at check out! A claim number? Well check out came and went the front desk manager even reassured us while entering the transfer van to the airport that she would be emailing us. Well it has been 9 days since we left and NOTHING! This is horrible. WHAT IF we didn't even sit on the bed for a brief moment? And is this a common problem all signs are pointing to YES!! Do I want anything in return NO, but a follow up would have been appreciated!!
This was my 12th trip to Club Med Turkiose in Turks and Caicos and it was terrific.Food: Great, Service: Great, Room: Great (don't expect 5 star, but it's clean and very comfortable plus the view was Unbelievable). Sports and Activities: Fantastic. Always so much to choose from. Beach: One of the best in the world - really. Staff: great - Special shout out to both the SAILING TEAM: Nick, Brit, Joey, Daniel as well as the CIRCUS TEAM: Emily, Rivers, Ally, Mani, Jayson and Patrick. As well, special thanks to Alan in charge of rooming for his excellent and patient service as well as the Chief of the Village: Françis, for Managing such a wonderful team and facility.
I spent an amazing week at Club Med Turkoise with my girl friends. It was a week of friends, guitars, swimming, sailing, dancing and much needed R&R. Actually who am I kidding, I didn't relax or rest much.PROS:• The beach is beyond beautiful - AKA: heaven• The staff are incredibly friendly and fun to hang with• The sailing was amazing, especially the trip to see the iguanas. - Thank you! Brittney, Joey, Nick, and Dorian! You're amazing peeps!!• Food was great! Oberto was so helpful and has a great smile!• Awesome DJ! Maximo kept us dancing all night. • Amazing happy people there on vacay. We made amazing new friends.• Snorkeling and swimming was cool. • The trapeze peeps literally blew my mind.CONS:• This is not a luxury resort so take your upscale self somewhere else. With that said, the bed was comfortable, the AC & plumbing worked, the rooms are large and the doors lock (kept that creepy guy out).• Not enough covered seating on the beach. That's right girl, you are getting a tan or burn.• Wish there was more yoga.Bottom line: This place is fun, you don't have to worry and there is a lot to do or you can just sit on your buns and relax.
Club Med Turquoise April 30 to May 10.Compared to my expectations, the food, the accommodations, the sail/snorkling team and the resort in general were excellent. The only problem is the tennis. There are only 2 resurfaced good courts. The rest are in really bad shape. The head of tennis (Matthew) would use one of the good courts during a scheduled afternoon doubles tournament to just hit with his friend (note that this was not a tennis lesson since Matthew does not give lessons. Really odd for a head of tennis). This pushed GMs (guests) to the bad courts.If 2 GMs had been playing on one of the good courts during a scheduled tournament, those GMs would have been asked to leave and use one of the bad courts. Since Matthew was the GO (organizer) head of tennis, he stayed on the good resurfaced court. In my opinion, priority use of the 2 good courts should be given to a scheduled event (class or tournament). Outside of a scheduled event, priority should be given to GMs (guests). If the 2 tennis GOs(organizers) want to hit with each other, and GMs are present, the GOs should move over to one of the bad courts. The problem is that the GOs will never use one of the bad courts. Only GMs use them. This should be a easy fix for Club Med management if they really care about their guests. Had it not been for this, I would have given an excellent review.
