On April 1, Club Med took a serious approach to a day known for pranks by launching an April Fool’s Flash Sale for bookings made at select properties through Wednesday, April 6.
Considered the all-inclusive vacation pioneer when it debuted in 1951, the vacation resort company is offering savings of up to $3,000 per booking (varies per property) on stays from April 30 through October 28, 2016.
The sample discount is based on savings for a Club Category seven–night stay for a family of four. Valid on new individual bookings for select travel days, the Flash Sale requires a three-night minimum stay.
As a bonus, children 15 and under stay free at Club Med's two Mexico resorts during the months of May, June, September and October.
Club Med Cancun Yucatan
On the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, this recently upgraded resort appeals with three expansive white sand beaches, new family oceanfront accommodations, refreshed Maya Lounge and Amphitheater, and a complete renovation of Las Cazuelas international buffet and La Estancia Argentinean grill. The 436-room resort’s colorful bungalows range from Deluxe Garden to Club Room categories.
Club Med Ixtapa Pacific
Stretching along a golden sandy beach with the Sierre Madre Mountains as a backdrop, the 298-room resort’s hacienda-style architecture enchants in beautifully recreated arches, pergolas and colonnades. Parents can explore the nearby fishing village of Zijhuatanejo while kids engage in supervised activities created especially for their ages.
As a highlight at these resorts (that are Green Globe certified for Sustainable Tourism), families can plug into four tiers of kids clubs — Baby Club Med (ages 4-23 months), Petit Club Med (ages 2-3 years), Mini Club Med (ages 4-10 years) and Juniors Club Med (ages 11 to under 18 years of age).
Other Club Med properties participating in the April Fool’s Flash Sale promotion include Club Med Sandpiper Bay (Florida), Club Med Turkoise (Turks & Caicos), Club Med Columbus Isle (Bahamas), Club Med La Caravelle (Guadeloupe) and Club Med Buccaneer’s Creek (Martinique).
Elevating the all-inclusive vacation concept beyond upscale accommodations and gourmet dining options, the Club Med brand provides all day dining, unlimited premium beverages, children’s clubs, land and water sports (with professional instruction and quality gear), activities and nightly entertainment.
