Sun. Sand. So. Much. Food. Just got back from a ten-day stay at Club Med Sandpiper Bay for our family vacation. It's our second time at this resort. We actually discovered Club Med last year and spent the Christmas holidays there playing, swinging (not that kind), and basking in the sunshine.
Now that we've experienced close to one month over the last two years in total as guests of Club Med, I feel qualified to share my thoughts on this family resort.
Imagine you're feeling the Florida sun beating down on you as a warm breeze tickles your skin while you watch this short video review.
One thing I failed to mention in this video is actually the big reason why we loved our stay so much. It's all about the relationships. Almost everyone on the Club Med staff was friendly, and made it a priority to create an emotional connection with the guests. And then there are the guests. We thought it would be a largely American clientele, but were happily surprised to see a large European contingent staying at the resort. Both our kids and my husband and I made friends with people from the UK, France, Germany, and Switzerland.
Yes, there's a lot to do to keep you busy at Club Med, and way too much to eat. But at the end of the day a vacation is about making memories. And that's what keeps us coming back.
This time, we when decided to make Club Med our all-inclusive winter vacation again, there was a special twist. We had so much fun last year, my husband convinced Club Med to run a music program at the Sandpiper Bay Resort using his League of Rock program. And they agreed! Every day over the holidays, guests had the choice of taking drum or ukelele lessons on the beach for an hour. It really hit the right note!
This was an amazing vacation in more ways than one for us! We hope to be back next year!
