Best Club Med Resorts

Established in 1950 with the key objective of providing travelers with a relaxing escape, Club Med infuses breathtaking natural landscapes with high-end, all-inclusive accommodations. The hospitality group now boasts more than 70 outposts across 30 countries worldwide, and its portfolio continues to expand. But what's kept travelers allured for nearly half a century isn't Club Med's gorgeous surroundings: It’s the properties' versatile vacation packages, which appeal to a broad spectrum of traveler types. Each of the varied styles provide travelers with a refreshing and rejuvenating retreat tailored to their personal preferences. And because all meals, activities and family- and couple-oriented services are included, budget-minded guests can unwind knowing that all of their expenses are covered. Club Med also offers frequent visitors loyalty privileges (such as free room upgrades and discounts on vacation packages) through its guest loyalty program, Club Med Great Members. Several Club Med properties claim a spot on our Best Hotels in the Caribbean and Best Hotels in Mexico rankings lists; those hotels are listed below.

  • TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Unlike other Club Med properties, this location caters more to families than to couples. Sprawling across white sands just north of Punta Cana proper, Club Med's bright red buildings feature 631 rooms outfitted with colorful decor and flat-screen TVs. Despite the spacious accommodations, some guests claim that the guest rooms could use a facelift. Visitors also recommend reserving a suite away from the resort's three bars, as late-night noise can make it difficult to sleep. While the kids are busy at one of the resorts kid's clubs, parents can unwind by the pool or with a massage at The Club Med Spa. When family play time rolls around, sign up for trapeze or tennis lessons, or take to the seas with your windsurfing, kayaking or snorkeling gear. After a long day, sit down to family dinner at one of three on-site restaurants, L'Hispaniola, Samana and the newly renovated Indigo Beach Lounge Restaurant. Previous travelers preferred Hispaniola to Samana because of its open-air seating. more

Its 376 accommodations feature warm mocha and tangerine hues, and include TVs, minibars and robes and slippers, among other amenities.

Plus, you and the kids can take advantage of water sports equipment, such as snorkeling gear, and lessons for activities like wakeboarding, windsurfing, waterskiing and sailing — all are included in your rate. Whether or not you're traveling with young ones in tow, you'll probably want to dedicate some of your time in Mexico to relaxing on the beach.

Rising above Plage Caravelle's picturesque shoreline near the Grande-Terre town of Saint-Anne, Club Med La Caravelle offers guests an all-inclusive retreat with primo beach access. But there's plenty more to do besides lazing along powdery sands (although most guests agree that lounging is a very pleasant way to spend the day). You'll find a wide array of outdoor activities here: Everything from tennis to trapeze lessons. Then cool down with a therapeutic massage at the spa while your youngsters take part in the resort's kids-oriented clubs. However, some previous guests note that many kids staying at Club Med La Caravelle speak only French, creating a difficult language barrier for English-speakers. At the end of the day, enjoy a family dinner in one of the swank restaurants: The Hibiscus and Biguine. Then, curl up in your plush red and orange bedding, and enjoy the resort's creature comforts, like its minifridges and flat-screen TVs. more

Occupying the southeastern corner of Martinique, the all-inclusive Club Med Buccaneer's Creek resort offers Club Med's signature luxury with a dose of Creole spirit. Facing Diamond Rock, the resort's bungalows neighbor a coconut grove and a white sandy beach and feature amenities like air conditioning, sea views and flat-screen TVs. Let Club Med school you on proper scuba diving techniques or sign up for an island excursion (both at extra cost). When you need a break, head to The Club Med Spa by PAYOT for a body scrub or a massage. Continue recuperating with the buffet at Pays Mélés, or try Lô's light lunches and Asian-Creole dinners. Though recent guests say the resort deserves kudos for its bevy of activities, they bemoan the fact that the property caters to French-speaking guests and the fact that it's located on a crowded public beach. Pack a phrasebook and your own sunscreen­ — guests say the supplies offered in the on-site shop come attached to steep price-tags. more

Scuba divers will feel right at home at Club Med Columbus Isle. Because of its Atlantic coast location in the San Salvador archipelago, divers are treated to an abundance of healthy coral and underwater life, not to mention clear visibility and warm waters. (Keep in mind scuba diving is not included in your package.) If you prefer to stay above the waves, the resort boasts plenty of complimentary activities, including sailing, windsurfing and tennis, among others. If you never want to stray from the shoreline, the resort's accommodations overlook Bonefish Bay and tout colonial-style architecture, flat-screen TVs and minibars. While the rooms feature air conditioning, recent guests mention that it isn't always reliable. To unwind after a day of diving, head to one of the three in-house bars or schedule a rejuvenating massage at the seaside Wellness Centre. The two on-site restaurants are also located along the water where impressive sea views complement the menu of fresh seafood. more
