The drive over there was beautiful. I could stare at this view forever.
It was rainy & cloudy the day we arrived but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the beautiful views.
We stayed in the deluxe family room. This is the view of the master bedroom. There was another room with 2 beds.
My daughter made herself at home as soon as she arrived. (Pictured: Skip Hop Zoo Luggage)
As you can see, my daughter made great use of the couch. As soon as we got there, she turned it into a toy zone. Squinkies galore.
I loved this lamp and the peacock blue chair. So cute.
The next day, the sun was out and the rain stopped. It was a little cloudy but that didn’t stop the paddle boarders and sailers.
Coffee time, ah yes. Fabulous.
We put the arts & crafts room to good use. We were in there a lot. It was fun and they basically give you free reign as long as you pick up your mess.
The mural in the arts & crafts room was awesome. So colorful. I loved it.
My daughter (okay, we all did) made great use of the playdough.
Ah yes, the kids pool area. This was designated for the younger kids and it was an easy way to get in some water time with the younger kids.
White Chocolate Bread. Enough said. (Here’s the recipe)
After meals, it was fun to relax and walk out by the water. These comfy chairs were a great place to sit and watch the water.
In the evenings, there was always some sort of performance or show for entertainment.
You can choose from a wide variety of classic or deluxe rooms and suites according to your personal preference or depending on your need.

We were very pleased with the Club Med Sandpiper Bay Resort. It was very kid-friendly and relaxing. My 5 year old had no problem finding fun things to do. It was nice to take a few days and experience all the fun things that Club Med had to offer.
Club Med provided us with accommodations for this trip. All opinions are my own.
