Overview

All-inclusive room rates cover sailing, tennis, windsurfing and more
Some say rooms could use a refresh

Scuba divers will feel right at home at Club Med Columbus Isle. Because of its Atlantic coast location in the San Salvador archipelago of the Bahamas, this Club Med property attracts divers keen on seeing the region's abundance of healthy coral and underwater life. (Keep in mind, scuba diving is not covered by your all-inclusive package.) If you prefer to stay above the waves, the resort boasts plenty of complimentary activities, including sailing, windsurfing and tennis. A spa, a pool, three bars and two restaurants that serve fresh Bahamian fare are available as well. Inside the resort's accommodations, you'll find colonial-style decor, flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and balconies that overlook Bonefish Bay Beach. However, some past guests cautioned that their digs lacked adequate air conditioning and appeared worn and dirty.

Critic Reviews

Frommer's

READ MORE 

It's unusually luxurious, and unusually isolated, for a Club Med, and it occupies a gorgeous beach. The sheer difficulty of reaching it adds to the get-away-from-it-all mystique.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

Fodor's

READ MORE 

This 89-acre oceanfront village is one of Club Med's most luxurious resorts, with state-of-the-art dive facilities and every water sport and activity imaginable. The resort caters primarily to upscale European, Canadian, and U.S. couples, but the vibe is more low-key (except during parties!) than at most Club Meds, and it is one of the most recommended by Club Med fanatics.

READ MORE 

One of only three hotels on San Salvador, in the Bahamas, Club Med Columbus Isle delivers an amenity-filled escape on an island that still seems as far off the tourist trail as when Columbus came ashore in 1492. Set on one of the destination's prettiest beaches – a white-sand stretch along Bonefish Bay – the hotel’s 236 rooms open onto balconies with views of the ocean or garden.
