Club Med Sandpiper Resort - Florida

It already seems like our trip to Florida was a lifetime away! Its hard to believe just 2 weeks ago we were soaking up the sun there.

If you are looking for a place that will give everyone in the family a true holiday, Club Med Sandpiper is the way to go!

We all had such an amazing time.  The food is great, the facilities are amazing, and there are activities for children of all ages as well as adults from morning to night.

First, we got a suite with 2 bedrooms, which was awesome, because sharing beds or rooms with our kids never turns out well.  The girls even had their own half bathroom.  The rooms are definitely not luxurious, but there are some nice touches like chocolates on your bed every night, bathrobes and slippers for the adults and decent toiletries.  There is also a mini fridge stocked with pop, a coffee maker and a selection of coffee and tea.

The food can accommodate even the pickiest of eaters with everything ranging from pizza, French fries, hot dogs, chicken nuggets and ice cream, to steak, duck confit, curries, stir-fries, pastas, a bazillion salads and veggie dishes, fresh breads and fancy pastries.  The food is served buffet style and is all you can eat, and there is a bar to serve all your beverage needs that opens at 10am.

There are 3 pools, one salt water that is not heated (was too cold for us!), one where you can do laps, aquafit, or just horse around, and one for adults only that also has a hot tub.  There is also a splash pad for the little ones.  In addition, there are paddle boards and sailboats, a golf course, tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, trapeze and circus!!

Below is the adult only pool.


There are camps from 9-5 for kids, which the girls loved, which kept them busy doing circus, trapeze, swimming and arts and crafts.  There is even babysitting for babies and activities specifically for teens 11-17.

Below is Big A, with a new friend, performing at a kids evening talent show.  She had such a great time!

Adam and I are not usually impressed by fitness facilities, but the gym at Sandpiper is pretty awesome!  I was able to keep up my weight lifting most days we were there.

 

 
There are also fitness classes such as muscle conditioning, Zumba, Pilates and yoga every day.  I did the Pilates a few times and didn't think the instructor was very good, but it was fun. If you have big bucks, you can hire a personal trainer to work with you while you are there.

Also, for additional cost there are spa treatments available at the spa, from massages to facials.

I can't stress enough how much I recommend this place for a visit, we all thought it was the holiday of a lifetime.
