We just returned from a Thanksgiving week at Club Med Columbus Isle. Not a sand flea to be seen! We did have twice-daily sprayings for what we thought were for mosquitos. But after reading some reviews we wonder if they were for sand fleas. Anyway, good trip - our 6th. Food maybe dropped a notch, maybe some residual mold in... More

Tennis and sailing GOs are great! They are excellent instructors, are very friendly, and have a good sense of humor. They organized fun competitions. The beach is very nice, just sand, no weed nor coral. The food is varied and excellent, especially the fish and the desserts, but also the fruits and salads and daily specials. The rooms are not...

Had a great week! We had no significant problem with sand fleas?? As usual food was outstanding. Thanks for all the hard work from water sports team led by Mamoudou. Also, great tennis instruction from Ivan and Danilo. Will certainly be back to San Salvador.

We are a French couple in our early 30's living in New York city and we had never been to a Club Med before this. We decided to go to Columbus Isle during our Thanksgiving break because of the closeness and good price-value. We had a wonderful time overall, but let's start with the things that need improvement: 1. Airport... More

disappointed about laminated sand flea warning in our room. Club med could have advised its guest proir to arrival that the fleas were so bad that using the beach would result in bites that require benadryl, and prescription hydrocodone cream.. very disappointed, actually angered as this was the hole purpose of our vacation was to relax on your beautiful beach....

Beautiful setting, blue ocean, but a notice that the beach is infested with sand fleas and how to avoid being bitten and your room full of these biting fleas, was a very shocking beginning, now i don't blame club med for this, its nature, but if there are notices laminated in your rooms, then Club Med is well aware of...
