This is a beautiful club med in a gorgeous location. There's many great activities that are infused with fun. We had 3-generations with us and there was something of interest for everyone. There were extensive excursion offerings to see the precious surrounding areas, which we delighted in. And another highlight was the food. What delicious and expansive offerings for each meal. I have several food allergies and the chefs took great care in making sure I had delicious and safe food for me to eat every meal. I felt so special and was treated like a queen. I would highly recommend it.

This is a gorgeous club med although the rooms are ready for some renovation as there is mold on some of them and the beds are old. Our main disappointment was with the GO and organization of the teens club. We have two teens who had been looking forward to going to club med again and when we got there the GO wouldn’t speak English and actually told us for our kids not to go to the club. We found two other families from the US in the same situation and at least out daughters had fun together, but looking back this was really not what we were expecting. We are definitely not coming back to this location.

Helo Delfos71,

Thank you for taking the time to review Club Med La Caravelle.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed our beautiful location, but disheartened to hear you were discouraged from the teen club. Any display of uncooperative or unprofessional service by our staff is certainly not to the standard which we expect in our resorts, nor the reputation we are known for in the industry. We truly apologize that your experience was less than what you expected as our only intention is to provide you with a superb and relaxing vacation experience.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to one of our beautiful Club Med resorts in the near future.

Kind regards,
Your Club Med Team

We’ve been to several all inclusive holidays but this was the first with our adult children.
This is an excellent resort for young families. It would be perfect if you speak French.
For adult children looking to party a bit and have some fancy blender drinks - this is not the place. There wasn’t outdoor bar - or any beach service.
Food was plentiful and interesting. There wasn’t the fresh fruit and fish options we are used to. Salad and fresh bread was excellent.
Drinks really weren’t great.
There also was seaweed that Club Med did a fantastic job removing from the beach but not everywhere did and that made an incredibly awful smell - very sulphurous.
The water was incredible - sandy bottom, warm and calm water. We just stayed in for hours. If we could have had drinks it would have been perfect.
Beautiful place - all the families - and bikinis everywhere - fun place!
Glad I went but would I go back - nope. Would I tell my friends to go ... probably not.
One thing we didn’t figure out until end our trip - each employee has flags around their name tags indicating the languages they speak. Wished we’d known to look for that.

Me and my brothers all arrived in the club to rejoin our parents who had already spent a week there beforehand, and I can describe it as quite simply the best Club Med resort I have been to.

Every year we go to a different Club Med, and despite always having a great time at all of them, this club really stands out.

It is by far the most picturesque resort I've ever visited, with the beach almost on the doorstep of the restaurant and the rooms; and what a beautiful beach it is. Glorious white sand and a beautiful turquoise sea. Purely based on the looks this is a 10/10 resort.

But on top of that, the GO team make such a huge effort to ensure that you're having the best time. The most notable of which were Anne and Constance, who were always there whenever they could be to ensure we were all having fun and happy. In the evenings they felt like friends that I could just have a laugh with, and my trip wouldn't have been as amazing without them.

Thank you so much for an incredible week Club Med La Caravelle!!

It's our third time in a Club Med Hotel , and we pretty much know what to expect but at this particular Club Med we felt the rooms were completely outdated and need an update urgently. The old decoration and the lack of good lightning in the bathrooms made us felt it was always dirty. Lucky for Club Med our housekeeper Jocelyme was always with a smile in her face and made us forgot about the room conditions.
Usually , Club Med has the best spots and again they made it. The beach , though it's a public one , is great and with all the infrastructure for the water sports if you are a big fan . The whole team were great - Guido, Aurel, Anne,Théo ,Quentim and Samy. We used for the first time the Mini ClubMed and my daughter loved it ! She's 4 and even though she does not speak french after the very first day she asked us if we were going to be upset if she spent the week with her new friends! The team of GO's CriCri,Dorian, Emilie,Anna,Marina,Nathan,Cristina,Camille made her felt confortable and welcome.
The strongest upside at this particular ClubMed is the food. Every meal was a struggle to decided what to eat. And i do recommend try a bite of everything , even the pizza made by real italian cookers was to die for. The downside of the restaurant was the fact ALL the waitress looks like they were making a HUGE favor of serving the table, there were no smiles and no sympathy AT ALL.
What brings us to the last point of my review, MOST of the staff, even the GO's are french speakers only and we felt a lot of times there were no effort of speaking anything else but french. And between my wife and I we spoke 5 languages. So it looks to us , their business strategy is to host only french guests . So if you decide to go to La Caravelle ,expect a language barrier.

Room tip: There's some parties at the beach , so if you are with children avoid the front beach rooms
