I think I got really lucky for my first Club Med experience! The grounds are gorgeous, and the oceanside location unforgettable. And all my snooty ideas of what an "all-inclusive" resort was like were dashed after my first delicious buffet lunch in the main restaurant. Go for the guacamole!
It was raining (unusual) when we arrived, and the charming and always-game young staffers ("GOs" in Club Med lingo) passed out giant golf umbrellas as they showed us to our suite in Sol. That first night we enjoyed the Vintage Circus show featuring the talented trapeze instructors. And while the rest of the shows might have been a little corny, depending on your mood, the kids in the audience seemed to love them. There was also a really good Cuban salsa band that played our last night.
The trapeze lesson was fun, and I'm grateful that Gui talked me into going through with it. But most of all, I liked the friendly multinational vibe which set it apart form other luxury resorts. And I hope I can go back with a posse of my nearest and dearest.More
