Palmyr 22-29 Aug 2020. We had previously been to Club Med Serre Chevalier, Bintan and Mauritius and enthusiastic about the quality of the services. After experience in Palmyr, not anymore... Palmyr certainly is not worth the 4 tridents it claims, compared to Serre Chevalier and Bintan that have 3. In addition to 1/ restaurant where the food looks better (showing off ) than it tastes + long queues, 2/ general approach from the beginning to the end of not providing spontaneously information, if you ask something you get referred to the Club's (cheap) app not including all the information and not working - also because the poor free wi-fi capacity of the resort , 3) cheap stylish shows for which you might be seated waiting for half an hour with your mask on and admiring drones above you waiting for a "spectacle" …..to discover ou are watching GOs "acting (seriously) Odyssea" in the swimming pool of the resort....the worst WORRYING MINICLUB ISSUE: our daughter 7y & mates in Miniclub missed their little train (Clubmed navette) after sailing lesson as the GO was trying to manage 12 kids alone (we saw the situation as finishing our lesson at about the same time......yes, we tried to help but at covid times the allowed is limited), the kids got shouted at by the GO that it was their fault they missed the navette, they had to wait for another navette of Clubmed 40 min (if it is Clubmed navette why can't they call it back?) sitting on the ground, arrived late for the lunch. Checking, I found the children eating in kids’ restaurant with no water nor anything else to drink. By that time (2pm) they had been outside, in the sun - including sailing- since 10 am. According to the GO she could not do anything as "the restaurant was closing and the drinking glasses and water were taken away "and that they will give kids water in the afternoon. (I certainly was not relaxed with the Miniclub after that but my daughter wanted to continue as she had made new friends). To my concerns the Miniclub personnel told me it's waist of time to complain, the reception told I should talk to the Miniclub chief whom I had never met (I was given the name and told she is of dark colour...) and that I should find her myself Friday evening between 9-10 pm during Kermasse in the resort's inside yard area (in a resort hosting 800 clients?). When I raised the issue with the "chef de village" (whom you can see always hanging around in front the restaurant like a jolly during meal times), he wanted to show me where you can find water in the kids' restaurant as if I were the GO and said that this could happen as they use in peak periods less experienced staff to cover the needs. At that point "j'ai laissé tomber". I have the impression this resort is simply not managed by anybody. Tanto fumo per poco arrosto.
We enjoyed the food and appreciated the recent renovation of the rooms. While it was clear that it was tough to communicate in English, we appreciated that most staff did try and some were good. The spa was great, and the GM running the Family activities was excellent!
Unfortunately we had a bad experience at petit club, which is child care for 2-3 year olds. My daugther arrived for the day with her bag with her swimming gear as requested. This was received and probably due to bad organisation was put in a locker with no name. This meant my child went the whole day with access to her swimming costume, hat and sunblock, along with her sleeping aide. In addition, when we went to collect her, the staff had the arrogance to say that we had not brought a bag - until my wife asked them to open every locker until we found the bag inside, unopened since the morning. Needless to say we did not send her back for the rest of the trip.
In addition to that we had a bad experience in receiving advice from reception that all tours were cancelled for the next 4 days due to tour de France. The day before the trip I went to check again and found that the tours were in fact on, but were now fully booked. Thankfully I managed to find a tour company in Royan that arranged a boat trip for us, despite Club Med not being able to oblige in any way.
It was a good stay, that could have been great. These incidents really make me question the club med experience.
