This is my fourth Club Med visit, but my first visit to the Club Med Cancun Yucatan.
I have to give Club Med credit for being one of the first beach resorts in Cancun, and being first gave it a prime beach location. And we had a wonderful view from our room, overlooking the water.
But the whole experience was just average. The facility looks a little tired - lots of little things need repair or upgrades. Stair treads, for example - I must have tripped four or five times over the course of the week because of loose edges or unmarked grade changes). And the air conditioning in our room never got very cool, which meant we didn't sleep very well. Given how sweltering and humid it was outside, good a/c is important. There aren't enough beach shelters for the number of people at the resort; we learned by the second day that we need to send someone out no later than 7am to reserve a shelter and lounge chairs for the day. There don't seem to be as many activities here as at other Club Meds; there are plenty of things for kids (and there are kids EVERYWHERE here), but not so much for adults, other than aerobics, tennis, and snorkeling. Speaking of snorkeling, the snorkeling area has no easy entry/exit area from the beach; you have to crawl over some very sharp rocks to get into the water. On exiting, I slipped on a rock and cut up my shins and one of my hands (there's an infirmary there, so I was able to get patched up). Couldn't there be some sort of dock or platform to avoid this risk?
On the plus side, the beach is very nice, and the water idyllic - smooth sandy bottom, gentle waves. And the spa was the best I've experienced at a Club Med, with a beautiful facility and skilled masseuse.
In all, though, the positives and negatives probably canceled each other out - but I would rather have a beach experience that is consistently good.
