- What's Included
I enjoyed my experience at Club Med due to the fact that the resort is well organized, offers a variety of activities for its customers, and provides strong customer service. Club Med also provides its customers with the opportunity of meeting new people-one of which I connected with on linkedin after I returned home. The beach is beautiful and food is served throughout the day. I should also say that winning the ping pong tournament was so much fun.Some of the associates that went out of there way to enhance the customer experience were Dre, Ayerton, Simon, Lee, Sebastian, Lauren, and Kelly. A thank you to all of them for doing a great job.The room was clean and is cleaned by the housekeeping staff (which does a thorough job) on a daily basis so you won't be disappointed with the accommodations. There is also a television in the room with plenty of channels to watch. The food was prepared well, but you won't get anything fancy-don't expect lobster or veal marsala. Most of the dishes served are basic foods that you eat on a regular basis. The desserts are really good and fresh fruit is available daily.The entertainment also needs improvement. Instead of having the staff (who are not professionally trained artists) perform on stage the resort should show a movie or have a low-key social similar to something used at a college orientation so the customers can get to know each other. The club style music performed at Sharky's (bar) after the trapeze event is more suited to a younger audience, but was enjoyed by some of the members. I did like the folk style singer who performed in the afternoon at Sharky's.The pool area is a nice hangout for customers to chill and chat. I would recommend that the staff provide a couple of umbrellas at the edge of the pool to create a shady section so people can stay in the water and get out of the sun.The atmosphere is laid back and the customers are mostly focused on getting rest & relaxation. The staff tries to pump up the members during the day at the pool with a "let's go" type of act which is definitely overdone. The staff doesn't need to charge up the members because everyone really just wants to chill. Instead, play some 80's new wave music with songs from bands such as INXS, The Pretenders, and Tears For Fears.The temperatures were hot in October and are probably like that for most of the year. If you're looking for weather in the 70's and low 80's, you should probably go in the winter time. In general I had a nice time and would definitely go back again. You really can't beat the price for a week's stay. Not long after I got back home I missed being at Turks & Caicos. I hope to go again soon.
This was probably my 15th time to the exact same location. I go back again and again for several reasons. One is sentimental. My first trip happened at a pivotal time in my life. Another reason is the beach and the water are amazing. For me, a vacation means I don't have to think or make decisions. I don't expect fancy accommodations or gourmet food. It is a very good vacation for anyone on a budget.
The scenery, ocean views, and a lot of the people are really interesting, and cultured.It's not complete luxury but it is nice. Especially for what you are getting in return. Although I would not drink the water!Max, the tennis instructor, was ultra talented, and a great guy. Max was Very knowledgeable, energetic, and a quality person. He can improve your game in just one lesson!
Great vibes all day long, the most beautiful turquoise beach I ever saw, Amazing staff esspcialy the sailings and scuba team with our wonderful sailing instructor Eric ZabalGreat parties until the morning NO Kids!!!! Keep it that way
We visited the resort 10/14 - 10/19 to celebrate my wife's birthday. I prepaid for the transportation, but didn't expect to be shoved into a cab and have the hatch slam on the luggage. I could have paid that price and gotten more room.The resort is aged as I'd seen in other reviews. The GO's are nice. We were on the far west side past the trapeze. Beds aren't great and I slept poorly, but we spent little time otherwise in the room. A renovation would be beneficial.Food was average in our view, but acceptable. We celebrated my wife's birthday by the pool, and the staff brought her a birthday cake and song. It was very nice.We tend to be active. I don't like laying around really at all. Sailing was fun, and my wife did the trapeze. We also went SCUBA diving which was our main purpose for going. The staff at the SCUBA shop are very nice. Also did massages which were nice.We met folks who go regularly and love the place. We have only done a couple of all-inclusives but expect there are better. Since this was a quick trip purchased as a special, we have no big complaints. Not a big drinker, but they are free, and could use a lot less ice. It was a nice time and at the end of the trip, we were ready to go home. It was nice to visit Turks and Caicos as well as Club Turkoise. Don't expect we'll return soon since it doesn't seem to be our type of crowd. We missed the shows because we were getting up early for SCUBA.
