We had a wonderful stay there. It was our first Club Med experience, and we weren't disappointed.
The variety of food, service, and rooms were fantastic, and even without any activities to participate in, the stay would have been great.
We tried our hand at archery, windsurfing and snorkeling. There were a good number of other activities but we were especially enamoured by the windsurfing experience. Our instructor, Arsa, patiently taught us from scratch, and we were up and about on our windsurf boards in less than an hour! Of course, it helped that the conditions were perfect for beginners: consistent, gentle wind (pros would be dreadfully bored!) and a thigh-depth underwater plateau which made capsizing a non-issue, and the mandatory life jackets quite redundant. Each time we capsized, we found ourselves standing or sitting on a bed of sea grass, half our bodies above water, ready to get up and go again!
Snorkeling was fantastic. We were taken to a portion of reef about 1-1.5m deep and allowed to explore. The coral was beautiful and visibility about 20m. Good experience, considering we scuba dive. We even managed to spot a banded sea snake up close (very venomous but also very gentle creature)
The only shortfalls are: lack of options for scuba diving, the beach was surprisingly mediocre, and the resort sort of 'blended' with its neighbours along the same stretch of beach.
If you want an awesome beach to park yourself on, skip this place. Otherwise, there's little reason not to visit if a Club Med vacation is your kind of thing!
