This was our first summer club med, having done skiing last year.
I was really impressed with the accommodation, food, staff and facilities. Fred was an excellent chef de village, multi-talented (made a great john Lennon) and appeared to be everywhere at the same time. Momo ran an impressive sailing area, and his staff were great. The whole family really enjoyed the catamarans.
For someone with no willpower, mealtimes were difficult as the food was brilliant, well presented and it was difficult to stop eating!
Our rooms were immaculate and we had no issues with cleanliness.
The GO's were very enthusiastic and good fun.
I think it is advantageous to speak at least some French, some of the GO's English was not quite as good as others. Nevertheless, Club Med is French and as I like speaking French it wasn't a problem for us.
My only gripe is nothing to do with Club Med but the extraordinarily aggressive porters at Tunis Carthage airport snatching cases out of your hands in order to get their tip. Whilst I appreciate this is their livelihood, they were so unpleasant about it there was no incentive to pay them at all.
Other than this a great holiday, highly recommended
