Today, many hotels and resorts offer all-inclusive packages, but if there is a leader in all-inclusive vacations, it is Club Med!
This chain developed the all-inclusive concept and popularized it, where the price of a stay includes accommodation, meals, drinks, activities and entertainment, all in paradise destinations.
With its first vacation village in Alcudia, Spain, in 1950, Club Med‘s innovative concept quickly gained popularity, and the company continued to expand by opening new vacation villages around the world.
With their unmistakable GOs and unbeatable entertainment, Club Med offers memorable vacation experiences for the whole family. Some of them, however, are for adults only, such as Club Med Turkoise.
Around the world, each Club Med distinguishes itself by its unique atmosphere, exceptional service and quality facilities.
In addition to the rich program of activities offered on-site, Club Med organizes excursions and guided tours to help you discover the wonders of each destination.
These complexes also have different types of rooms adapted to the needs of families. Of these, family rooms generally offer a separate space for parents and children; family suites may include a separate room for parents and a living room; while connecting rooms are linked by an interior door.
Here is our selection of the best Club Meds that guarantee an exceptional stay.
