“good accomodation in great location might need a make-over”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I'm no ClubMed fan, but since we were traveling with our 12-year-old grandchild a ClubMed could be a convenient option and it totally was indeed. Trancoso in Bahia is a great spot, exotic and unspoilt. It takes you an hour on dirt roads to get from the Porto Seguro airport to the ClubMed. The location of the club on the red Atlantic cliffs is amazing. The overall plan of the accomodations is great. Rooms are fine, but rather unattractive. The service is very friendly, but you better speak some Portugese... Lots of things to do (from private beach to tennis courts and soccer pitch and an amazing golf course next door), but with the rather bland buffet food and poor wine choice not a destination for gourmets...

Those who wish to temporarily disappear, this is the place! But face it, there are nicer environments ... Hotel difficult to access, with rudimentary road associated with comfortable facilities. Poor coverage from the driver greet you at the airport to check-out: it lacks naturalness gradually smiling for convenience. Comfortable rooms, charming restaurants with no delicacies. Anyway, do not return

Beautiful location on top of a cliff overlooking a beach that is as good as yours, except on weekends when a handful of locals might occasionally appear. Be aware that it is a charming yet intense 200-steps walk to the beach and back.
Service is friendly and efficient, and we know this part of Brazil well enough to not take it for granted. A few misses did not affect the overall experience (like an unnotified change of schedule due to "weather conditions"... the day before!)
Sports activities are good, although not extremely diverse. The highlight is trapeze and other circus-ey activities.
Food was very satisfactory, and I'm not easily satisfied : diverse, fresh, tasty and available at the right time at the right place (eg barbecue on the beach)
Our kids loved the kids club, and we loved the fact that they did.
The massage at the spa was very good, and the overall experience was great (having the whole place to myself made it quite a spoil)
Family rooms are pleasant and roomy, not overwhelmingly beautiful but it did the job for us.
Save your money on excursions, the historical places around the resort are not exceptional. Instead we recommend a stop over at Belo Horizonte and trip the gold rush cities such as Ouro Preto on your way to/from São Paulo or Rio.
Overall a very pleasant and relaxing experience we would recommend to our friends and even to irritating people we don't like so that they become happier people :-)

The pros : Great Chef de village (Julien), with an excellent deputy, present on all fronts and looking after his guests. Beautiful location. Excellent for kids with traditional Mini Club setup.

The cons : access road in bad condition for the last 5 km or so, making it an uncomfortable ride. Internet access in some areas of the resort is restrictd or inexistent. As pointed out by other contributors, variety and quality of food seems a bit below par when comparing with other Club Med resorts (with exception for the very wide choice of bread including chocolate bread). Some of the tennis courts also require refurbishment.

The site and landscape are superb. Located on the top of a cliff, with a tropical, blue water and sandy beach just below. The cuisine ánd GO's were also above average some years ago. Our last visit confirmed what other friends were telling us: Club Med Trancoso is no longer the same. Cuisine has dropped to just acceptable and GO's are as energetic as a 80 y-old grandmother

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tucked away in a coconut grove well away from the tourist roads, the thatched roofs of the Village's Bungalows are like a relaxing haven perching on superb cliff tops. Down below, a long sandy beach runs along the ocean's edge, a sight that can also be enjoyed from the neighboring golf course. The place is teeming with wildlife, with sloths clinging to the branches and multicolored parrots setting the sometimes wild, sometimes peaceful pace of nature, in a subtle Brazilian blend. ... more   less
