We just returned from one week vacation at Club Med Columbus Isle on San Salvador Island in Bahamas. It was our third stay at this CM. We like this well run resort with relaxed atmosphere, because it is small (216 rooms), offers most beautiful beach and good assortment of water sports. The G.O. are very friendly and together with Antonio,...

Gorgeous beach beautiful water. Excellent water activities. Nice snorkling. Friendly GO's and resort staffs. Specially Sofi at the beach bar making the best special coffee. She always made the milk in my cappuccino nice and hot. Loved her smile and great attitude. She made our vacation enjoyable. The food was great. I will go back for sure. Veronique Calgary, Alberta

There was always lots to do including yoga,water aerobics, games at the bar, tours, blackjack night with great prizes, evening entertainment, dancing at the beach bar etc. The GO's were friendly and fun and we...

Once the Club Med started restructuring in the American zone they kept the best and let the rest go. Having visited them all (and many several times), the result is still very good. Columbus Isle is a family friendly resort with one of the better layouts and facilities Club Med has to offer. As of winter, 2017, Columbus Isle may...

We spent time at the Club Med in Guadeloupe recently so it was interesting to compare the two. We generally preferred Columbus for the following reasons: Columbus is smaller in size but the beach is much longer so good for walking.(although the sand is not quite as fine as in Guadeloupe) Food is definitely better although it lacks local fish...

The resort is consistent over the years in quality of all aspects. Most of my activity centered around diving, and the team there is superb. David, Tamaro, Kindle (sp?) and Jean-Paul are reasons to keep returning.

We stayed at CM-CI during the week of February 11-18. Although I read many reviews of this village, the actual experience was even better than I thought it would be. We visited San Salvador last year and stayed at the only other place on the island. As we were checking out beaches on the island, we walked through the CM...
