Title says it all. The beach is the best about the property along with all the options for taking lessons. There really is something for everyone. Yoga, Zumba, fitness classes, tennis, trampoline, trapeze, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling. I loved all the activities.
Having said that there are some drawbacks to the AI and it is naturally the food and the accommodation. As for the food I was always able to find at least one thing that I really liked at the buffet, mostly it was the cook to order station with Anne, who was extremely friendly. It is very easy to overeat - I must have gained 10 lbs.
We were in building D behind Sharkies, which turned out to be great. We did not hear any of the music. The rooms are ok, nothing to write home about. Upon closer inspection you will find mold (on the ceiling and/or the lamp shades or curtains/ shower.. etc)
The GOs are very hit or miss. Many try and are friendly Richard and Kory come to mind here for me, but there are some that are either snooty or rude or not interested in teaching you anything (Alex and Derf/Thor to some extent). To me it seemed that the GOs were interested in partying/talking only with each other. I noticed this a couple of times at night and also in the evenings at Sharkies. I didn't care about that since I was there with my wife, but others might have been bothered by that.
The reception is a mess, so you better not have a problem. Not very friendly (esp. Laura who does not know how to smile and the GF of the chef de village-struts around like she owns the place) The friendliest receptionist were not from the US and or Canada.
Mike the Chef de Village is a good entertainer and has a great memory for guest, but is not really a manager of a hotel. He seems like a kid trying to keep the other kids in line. Energy-wise I hear that the staff does not just like the powder from the beach.
The shows were ok, the acrobatic ones being the best. Be prepared for either some stereotypes that might make you feel uncomfortable like jokes about people's origins and about gays. Def not something that my wife and I appreciated. Most of the guests laughed though (shows you what type of clientele you'll run into there)
If you go there as a couple, spend all your time doing activities you like, go to the beach and go to bed early as you want to. As a single male in your twenties or maybe early thirties you are probably getting laid here. If you are in your forties or older and are a single male: Good luck trying!
The scuba diving is well worth it, but not part of the Club Med package. See my separate review on that.
