I recommend the golf team

Decent club in a great spot. I truly enjoyed the golf lessons given by Enzo. Demanding, professional and really talented to improve your swing. Demanding but friendly and generous n the way he manages his students. Thank you Enzo!

Great for children, not for couples without kids

We’ve been to many Club Meds before and this was the first Club Med we weren’t too happy with. The room was ok , unfortunately the bathroom didn’t have a Toiletrie Kit. We bought the things in a supermarket 20 min away. The Club has a lot to offer for kids. For couples without children we wouldn’t recommend the Club though. Usually the shows at night are amazing at Club Meds but at this Club Med they were really bad definitely for children… Overall a nice stay but we wouldn’t come back (only with children).

Amazing, Friendly Staff. Language and Dining Challenges.

This is a tough review to write. First, the staff that we interacted with were excellent. Yohan, Clement, and Ligia in the Mini Club were so lovely, our kids loved going to Mini Club every day just because they had such fun with the caretakers. We loved how much they seemed to love and enjoy their job. The setting is also very nice, as were the facilities for archery and circus. That said, English-speakers should know that 90% of the staff and guests speak French. Some have more English than others, but as much fun as the kids had in the Mini Club they really struggled to make friends because there were so few English speakers. Plus, while the caretakers did their best, when 90% of your kiddos speak French (as do you) you are going to speak that more often. Not necessarily the worst thing, our kids definitely got to practice their French, but something worth knowing ahead of time. Our biggest complaint was the food services. The food itself wasn't bad, solidly average, but the dining buffet was never prepared when it should have been. If the schedule says that it opens at 7am or 7:30pm, it should be staffed and ready at that time. So often we would arrive and machines weren't plugged in, or only one staff member would be facilitating very hands-on stations. At breakfast one time there were dirty dishes left on a table from the night before. It seemed much more like a staff management issue, rather than an issue with the staff that were there. The staff we interacted with were so helpful and nice, there just weren't enough of them. In the end I would say that if you are comfortable with the French and are not there for the food, you'll enjoy your trip. The activities are plentiful and the Algarve is gorgeous.
