Fun activities and very friendly staff. The energym class with Marco is a great morning workout. It tones and stretches the whole body! The vacationers are mostly families with young children and pensioners.

Overall, this Club Med is very good. Nice food, ambience, atmosphere, staff, etc. However, almost all activities are held in French so it's difficult for us (English speakers) to join activities. Of course if we asked something in English, staff spoke and answered in English,...More
