Some changes here (updated March 2010 ) - note that village was on "Club Med time" in March (and typically in December, too - an extra hour of daylight compared to the city of Cancun):

GYM and Fitness Classes

  • The gym layout is relatively unchanged (since the Hurricane). All new weight machines plus free weights and several ellipticals, plus a few stationary bikes and a stairclimber
  • GYM published hours: 6:00am-10:00pm
  • They often have a GO on duty to help with workouts, etc.
  • A variety of fitness and aerobics classes held regularly including Yoga and Zumba (March 2010)

Tennis Updated January 2010

  • 7 Tennis courts. This has been reduced from 8. The reduction was caused by re-routing of the main village access road to make more room for Jade grounds
  • TENNIS club published hours: 8.30-11:30am and 4:00-7:00pm, 3p-6p; Miniclub 10.30-11:30am; Advanced lessons 8.30a; Intermediate lessons 9.30a; Beginner lessons 10.30a; Tournaments on Sun, Tue, Thur, Fri at 5:00p and Thursdays at 8:30am
  • Lessons available every day except Thursdays
  • Good feedback about the tennis program. Good partner matching and tournaments as usual
  • Most courts are lit for night use
  • One minor oversight was the lack of wind dampening slats in the chain link fence around each court

Court Sports and Soccer

  • BEACH Volley-Ball is well attended and takes place behind the mini club
  • HARD COURT Basketball at the hard court area next to Circus
  • HARD COURT Volleyball has not been happening, but the place for it is the same as for basketball. Gone are the days of volleyball tournaments near the main bar
  • The former basketball court near the main bar is now an outdoor lounge area and night time entertainment area
  • Soccer takes place on the beach near beach volleyball - the grass field is gone due to re-routing the entry road for the Jade expansion


Miscellaneous

  • There is a beautiful SPA right next to the GYM - occupying the former outdoor walkway area. The entry to the spa is right next to the new GYM entry. The spa has an amazing list of services - anything you can imagine
  • SPA: Greatly expanded! April 2008 Spa brochure with prices (thanks Jim)
  • SALSA dance lessons daily: 10:30 am and 4:30 pm in the main bar - taught by Monica!
  • DISCOVERY CENTER (EXCURSIONS): February 2011 Excursion list with prices
  • Two pool tables - now located in the main theater, along with a foosball table or two
  • Two table tennis (ping pong) tables are located near the entry to the main restaurant
  • There was a kid's games night in the theater before the show one night
  • Olympics and sports awards night is toned down - less awards overall, but still fun
  • Powerwalk every morning at 9:00am
