If you’ve spent hours looking for a resort that will take the load off of worrying about what to do with the kids when you need some time to relax, Club Med Resorts is for you! Club Med is a wonderful option for families that allows mom and dad to relax and enjoy the vacation too.
Here I’ll share with you the three Club Med Resorts that I highly recommend considering when booking your next family vacation.
Club Med is an all-inclusive resort, where the pricing is per person rather than per room. The exciting part is that children aged 0-3 stay for free, 4-11 enjoy a 50% discount, and 12-15 receive a 20% discount.
Club Med has locations in many beautiful places around the world, and they pride themselves on providing the perfect escape from the hustle of everyday life so that you have no excuse to take a break and spend meaningful time with your family.
When you let Club Med know you are traveling with a child who is 4-23 months old, you will be given the “baby welcome” as part of your all-inclusive package which includes baby beds, a bathtub, strollers, bottle warmers, and everything you could possibly need right in your room.
At an extra charge, you can leave your babies in good hands at “Baby Club Med”, where they will experience age-appropriate activities so you can enjoy some adult time. Children aged 2-3 have access to 24/7 childcare, which is a great feature exclusive to Club Med (most other resorts with kids clubs or childcare starts at 4 years old).
At the “Petit Club Med”, your young ones can partake in activities suitable for their age ranging from a baby gym to support their learning motor skills to crafting to engage their creativity. It is a small additional cost to your trip because, as we noted earlier, kids under 3 are free.
The services don’t stop at sundown. The “Pajama Club” runs from 7-11pm and allows for children to play and wind down in a group setting, and there is also individualized evening babysitting offered at an extra charge if you request it.
Children ages 4-10 years old have access to many enjoyable activities at the complimentary “Mini Club Med” where they can play sports, games, do arts and crafts, and even take circus school lessons! It will surely be a unique experience they will never forget.
Teens between 11-17 years old get to have their own space away from their parents where they can learn film design, play video games, learn how to DJ, take circus lessons, and play sports with their peers. They can even partake in the same sports lessons offered to adults such as tennis, golf, and scuba. Teens have access to their own juice bar at the Miches resort!
Club Med’s Punta Cana All-Inclusive Resort on the island of Hispaniola in the Dominican Republic is the best selling property and for good reason!
The most notable feature for families wanting to plan a tropical vacation at this tranquil resort is that there is childcare service for children as young as 4 months old, which is extremely hard to find at most resorts.
And while your child is enjoying activities provides through childcare, adults can also have fun in an exclusive area for adults only at the Zen Oasis.
Another convenience included is the flight from Miami landing directly on the island, with transportation available to the resort.
There are a variety of restaurants and bars to choose from with delicious cuisine across the resort. Upgrade to the Exclusive Collection Space and enjoy 1 of 32 exclusive family suites that has a separate bathroom and bedroom for the parents and kids.
Other exclusive services included with this add-on are the infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea, continental breakfast served in your room (at an extra charge), and priority booking at the spa.
There are 28 included activities in your stay and another 31 on demand activities. Some of the popular options are sailing lessons, paddle board, trapeze and circus lessons, horseback riding, snorkeling, tennis, scuba diving, and much more!
Club Med’s Michès Playa Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic is described as a resort where casual elegance meets eco-chic paradise.
There are four different boutique villages each with their own unique environments and accommodations. Two of the boutique villages are adults only and the other 2 are accommodating to families. Wellness is their mission, with an emphasis on yoga, facials and other spa features, activities, and sports.
Enjoy jungle to table dishes that feature locally and organically sourced ingredients. The childcare program introduces your children to fun with nature such as the little gardeners’ house where children can grow plants, fruits, and vegetables.
Club Med offers a program called “Amazing Family” to encourage families to participate in games and events (like a treasure hunt) that will bring the whole family together through bonding.
Other exciting features offered for children are the splash park, the chocolate room, a kids zipline and ropes course, and even paddle boarding for children over 6 years old.
Along with wellness and nature values shared by this resort, they place much importance on sustainability through a no single use plastics program and the development for the local community through sustainable tourism.
Club Med Cancún Yucatán Resort is located at the tip of Riviera Maya. With three white sand beaches next to the world’s second largest coral reef, this magnificent resort offers an extensive array of water and land sports, a variety of activities for families and kids of all ages, and direct access to ancient Mayan wonders.
Some of the exclusive services provided are an oceanfront infinity pool, a full-service pool side bar, luxury cabanas and gardens, and for an upcharge, room service.
There are many luxurious restaurants and bars provided at the resort, just make sure to reserve a table ahead of time for your dinner. You can also find baby food and high chairs at restaurants.
The resort includes childcare services in the price for kids 4-17 and they must provide it on demand for children under 4. This resort offers 30 included activities in your stay.
Any Club Med Resort can be great for families, so whichever you choose to bring your family to, expect to have an amazing time with lots to do and plenty of space to unwind and relax while your kids can enjoy a variety of activities in specialized childcare programs offered.
I hope this inspired you to consider a Club Med resort at the next location for that family trip you’ve been dreaming about! Now is the time to make it happen and I’m here to guide you through the entire process.
