The rooms are in two groups, one near the tennis and horse stables (A-D), and the other spread along the beach toward the sailing and scuba (S,T,V,Y,Z). Depending on your interests, you might prefer one over the other. The beds are in alcoves and can not be pushed together, like most other villages.
Note: This village is open from March or April through October, only.
Trivia note: The beach scenes in the movie Catch-22 were shot on what is now this village's beach. Also, on the hillside behind the village you can see the dirt runway made for the movie.
This is a Dedicated Dive Center. Club Med is really pushing it on this one, about all it means is a 2 tank dive per day. The water temp can be anything from freezing to almost too hot; depending on the time of the year that you are there. Wetsuits are available free of charge. There just are not any good dive sites locally and the vis can be pretty bad. There was only one local spot that I can say I really, really enjoyed. The diving off Seal Island is very nice and there is a good chance of seeing dolphin and/or whale on the trip over. The down side of going to the island is it burns up most of a day; which is why they don't do it everyday. Diving with the playful seals is great fun; just watch out for the big males. The Diaz wreck is a worthwhile semi-local dive also. There is no dock for the dive boats to tie up to, so transfers are by skiffs, boarded on the beach. If the ocean is rough, the boarding may be done in the lagoon. A night dive is done on Wednesday. A computer is not needed at any of the dive sites.
