My husband and I traveled to Club Med Miches with our two boys who are 20 and 22. The resort and the location did not disappoint! We had an oceanfront suite in Carribean Paradise (hubby and I) and the boys had oceanfront family suite in Explorers Cove. The locations of these rooms was ideal, as it was in the center of the action. Perhaps if you have small kids you might wish to consider Emerald Jungle, a bit farther from the late night party noise that occurs near main bar. For us, the noise wasn't a problem, as we were likely making the noise! :) The food is exceptional---we are not buffet people, but this is unlike any buffet you have experienced. Fish and meat is finished grilling before your eyes so it's perfection! We had dinner reservations for 4 evenings (Coal and Copper/steakhouse and Coco Plum/seafood) so we split up our time between the buffet and the restaurants. We treated ourselves to a bottle of champagne from LeCave one evening, but honestly we were completely content with the wonderful house wines and champagnes. The bar features top shelf liquors too---12 year Macallan whiskey included!
Special mention to the wonderful team members that made our visit exceptional:
Perrine (mgr of Carribean Paradise) asked the restaurants to make room for us since there were no reservations available when we checked in. Tulio (mgr of Coco Plum) heard our challenges with reservations and added us to his list the following evening. We arrived (anytime we wished) and he accommodated us! Tulio made us feel very special. On the tennis courts, Ramon was warm and welcoming; Marco was patient and encouraging as he taught me tennis 101. Our favorite bartenders were Alexis who made the perfect espresso martini for me everyday at 5pm. Julio not only made exceptional cocktails, but also searched the bar TV stations so my family could watch the 49ers beat Minnesota! Jhonny at Coco Plum bar made us the best Pina Coladas daily. Eddy arranged a wonderful horseback at sunset for us! Arturo (#2 in charge of resort) not only treated us like family upon meeting him, he's an amazing entertainer each evening! This is definitely a resort you could comfortably attend by yourself and never feel lonesome. Both staff and all the guests are welcoming and friendly. We loved the vibe at the resort.
Other reviewers mentioned the shower temperature fluctuation (Carribean Paradise), this happened to us as well, but not a big deal. Likely it's being worked on.
tips: Push for the restaurant reservations you want but understand that the buffet is excellent too! Perhaps request 2nd floor for your rooms. Couldn't change at check-in.

Room tip: Archipalego is closest to ocean with best views.

We visited Miches a couple of months after opening. We stayed in the quiet adults-only "Emerald Jungle" - next to tennis, trapeze, and 2 story outdoor tree-top yoga. Room was spacious, nicely designed at the level of a top Hilton/Marriott.

Activities were classic Club Med - lots of tennis (great team), yoga and fitness and also tried the electric surfboard, aerial yoga (great instruction by Jonathan) As is typical at Club Med you can be as active, or relaxed as you want.

Food was excellen - main buffet did a great job with plating and composing single-portion dishes - interesting appetizers and small treats so you simply choose a couple of small plates for these options. Meat and fish grill stations at dinner offered steaks and many fish choices. The dessert bar was lovely with many options.

2 restaurants required reservations and offered waiter service - a steak restaurant (Coal and Copper) and the seafood restaurant (Coco Plum) had lobster tails and scallops. Very popular so reserve a couple of days in advance.

Service was excellent across the board. The team at Coco Plum (also a great lunch spot) was universally friendly and fun - Esterling, Enrique, Nestor and Lizet were all great. Wilson at Coal and Copper - a gentleman and a phenomenal server. The overall tone was fun, happy, positive and encouraging - even the "buggy" (electric cart) drivers were eager to give rides and be helpful all day and into the evening. Clearly the culture and training is strong and going well.

Club Med Miches Playas was by far the most exclusive experience out of all the Club Meds. The Food was so unique and delicious with each day something new to try. The bar had all the high class brands with the bartenders making delicious drink combinations. The local staff were all so friendly as I got to meet many Bartenders and Waiters as they treated us like VIP. The GO team were phenomenal, ALBERONY the Surf instructor helped me face my fears of the water teaching me how to ride the electric surf board. His friendliness and personality led me to gain his trust and thus leading me to conquer the water. EDWIN helped my kids become comfortable with the pool and activities as he introduced them to the Kids club and helped them face their fears of meeting new kids. The sport Manager ALEX was very kind and organized with all of the sports. His leadership and organizational skills helped set up many great sport activities for the whole club to participate. Club Med Miches Playas is the place to be.

We just came back from a seven day trip to Club Med Miches and we come back with wonderful memories and had a great family time. The location is amazing: one feels like on an isolated island, the water is rough at times but beautiful and one can walk along the beach and watch beautiful sunsets. We just loved it.

Yes, as is noted in some of the reviews, the sand is not white and the water is not always calm, but this is what makes it charming: it is rougher but also more isolated than Punta Cana. Yes, it can rain, but it is always warm and it usually does not last. Yes, there can be mosquitoes at night, but they usually are not there when there is wind and there are also butterflies, birds, and no dangerous animals.

The Club’s infrastructure is beautiful (and will be more so once the plants and flowers grow and animals are back after construction) even though it still needs some fixing (having just opened). We especially liked the pools (chlorine free) and other fitness amenities.

The activities are great and will be better tailored to the surroundings as time goes by (for instance, maybe add surf or take advantage of the rougher sea to have other types of nautical activities), or hiking around.

We also agree with some of the other suggestions: for instance: label the food.

The service staff was very friendly and nice (although for some still learning):
Many thanks to Ellayne, who cleaned our room and was always so nice;
Martin, one of the Explorer cove beach security guard,;
Aurelio (we think) who fixed our lights;
Mercedes (at the main restaurant) who always illuminated our meals with her smile and friendliness;
Victor, our great waiter, the barman and also Diego, the Argentinian chef of the coal and pepper restaurant; and
Victor Manuel and Nestor (we think it was the name of a very kind Peruvian guy) del Coco Plum restaurant.
There were a few other ones in the main restaurant whose names we cannot recall.

The GO staff always ensured that we had the best stay and experience.
Cynthia gave us a great paddle board course and ensured that we did not make fools of ourselves not being able to stand up and being carried away by the current and taught us to stand (less shakily) on our board. We then had several meals with her and Alfredo, another GO from her team and we enjoyed spending time with them;
Élodie from the reception who ensured that we had a second great welcoming and answered all our questions;
Marco who introduced us newbies to the Club Med experience and with whom we had a great tennis below the stars;
Vivi from the mini club was so friendly and nice and ensured our three year old get at ease with other kinds the four hours we left him there;
Mélanie from the fitness center with her contagious energy and who always pushed us, and the GO from spinning.
La Crema who gave the best hidden chocolate experience to our son.
Luiggi and the guy from the fried and spicy stuff in one of the island in the middle of the main restaurant.
The whole circus team with their shows even under the rain.

One point we would like to stress: we strongly believe that since Club Med (and us guests) are taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings and what nature has to offer, it should add a sustainable aspect to its business. For instance, we noticed that as soon as you leave the club’s limits, the beach is filled with garbage brought by the ebb and flow (not by the Club). We would suggest that Club Med assist in recovering this garbage (even make it an activity for guests). We would also suggest that the Club’s ecological footprint be reduced.
For instance, replacing the plastic bottles in the room by reusable bottles that can be replenished at the bar; getting rid of the sensor light or optimizing it (which in addition to using a lot of energy can be very annoying in the middle of the night), ensuring to promote local farmers/fishermen, or promoting eco-friendly habits from guests: reusing beach towels or only asking for a change of towels every other day. In short having a social side to its luxury business.

But definitely, a very nice experience to have in a great place. We recommend it!!!

Room tip: You can choose from a variety of room, some of which with beach front.
