When Club Med says all inclusive, they mean ALL inclusive. For the next 6 days everything we wanted was taken care of, from tennis lessons to wind surfing to dining and bar tabs. With dances and entertainment every night, exercise from Zumba to aerobics every day, and one of the most picturesque sites on the peninsula in between, we never felt the need to make an excursion, though there were several available. The Mayan ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza, the village of Cancun and special scuba trips were all available for a premium.
The Cancun Club Med is especially family oriented as are the CMs in Ixtapa and Sandpiper, Florida. Others are more singles oriented. We enjoyed the variety of ages and activities, with evening shows featuring the staff. It was great fun to see my tennis coach playing a DJ and our dance instructor doing the moonwalk a la Michael Jackson.
As a French-owned resort in Mexico, it was fun and interesting to hear the variety of languages spoken, French, English, Spanish, Hebrew, Portuguese, to start. This diversity was reflected in the dining as well, with fine French cuisine coupled with American hamburgers and hotdogs, Brazilian Feijoada, Mexican fresh fish tacos and guacamole, and Asian delights like sushi. There was something for everyone to eat and it was all beautifully prepared and presented. I longed for a tour of the kitchens! The weather was mostly perfect – 74 degrees, sunny and breezy, with just one rainy day. Our comfortable room gave us plenty of privacy and quiet and was just 5 minutes’ walk to every location in the resort. We liked it so much, we’re taking our entire family back in August for a week!
