Review Of Our Stay at Club Med Sandpiper Bay, Port St. Lucie, Florida - The Only All Inclusive Resorts in the United States
Club Med Sandpiper Bay is located in Port St. Lucie, Florida and this property is the only all inclusive resort in the United States.
Being that Nelson and i are used to the Caribbean properties we were a little skeptical about this one.
1st of all, not every all inclusive resort offers the same things. Each business partner we offer our clients is different.
Being that this is a family resort and is located just 1 1/2 hours North of Orlando, FL which means if you want you can take day excursions to the theme parks or Kennedy Space Center or you can go South to the Ft. Lauderdale and Miami area.
If you are a baseball fan, like us who are Mets fans, their Spring Training Stadium is less then 10-15 minutes away. We are hoping to do a weekend group here next Spring and go see one of the games.

Make the most of your stay at Gregolimano to discover the natural beauty and fascinating culture of the region.
The Island of Eubea, where Gregolimano Club Med is located, is Greece’s second largest island after Crete. There are numerous villages, beaches and historic sites to explore in the surrounding area, including
,What we liked about Club Med is that it is all about family and activities like the local sports and activities. There are even areas for infants to stay while the older children and parents can take in the activities together or the kids have their fun and the adult have their fun.
Food here was some of the best we have ever had at an All Inclusive. Since the company is owned by the French, the breads and desserts are some of the best. You have to try the Chocolate Bread if you love chocolate. Pizza being originally from NY, you are picky about certain foods and pizza is one of them. They have some of the best pizza every.
Plus regional and international foods that are changed out every day. The buffet is opened Breakfast, lunch and dinner; in between there is an area to get snack and more!
Club Med focuses on sports activities. Whether you know how to play them or not. We learned how to play golf which is included in your stay, if you go with a group, you also have individual and private lessons for extra, but we loved this. There is also Tennis again same idea as the Golf and Volley Ball. The resort is not a huge one, but has all the amenities that you want. Whether for family, couples or event a business seminar. They offer everything here.
If you are disabled, especially since this is located in the United States, they are ADA Compliant, no stairs to worry about, the buildings where the rooms are have elevators, if you are on a second floor, all of the rooms are wide enough that you don't have to get of wheelchair or collapse a scooter.
Another thing about their rooms. Lower levels all have walk out patios that either face the Marina or Gardens. Either way, you have a beautiful view.
Don't over back when traveling here. They have Washers and Dryers you can use, so one carry-on suitcase is enough. They even have detergent and dryer sheets.
Pricing are very economical and we will have updates offers for you and your families available in our e-newsletters; on Facebook and on Linkedin.
We give ClubMed Sandpiper Bay 5 thumbs up on location, activities, food, international locations, and staff. We will be back.

Over the next few weeks, we will be posting reasons to visit the "Country of Spain".
We will be hosting a group to Spain for the 1st week if June 2018, the itinerary, pricing and more will be released the first week of April 2017, and anyone throughout the United States may join us, as long as, you are 21 years and older. Please remember we can do your friends, family, romance and business groups anywhere in the World. But, our hosted groups are to those of ages indicated.
Now, one of the reasons to visit Spain is just the country itself! How important it is not only to the United States, let's face it, without Queen Isabella, Christopher Columbus would have never found the Caribbean. Yes the Caribbean (Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Cuba), yes, I can hear it now, that others were here first, etc. Laughing.
Toledo, Spain is one of the many reasons to visit Spain! Why? You Say!
One of the reasons, whether or not you are a religious person; all 3 main religions have had influence in the area (Christian, Muslim, and Jewish) from the Moorish gate (Puerta de Bisagrai), to the Gothic convent of San Juan de los Reyes. Toledo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of all these wonderful cultural attractions throughout the city.
Another reason is that it was immortalized by Spain's renowned artistic genius El Greco in a cityscape that currently hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The city has changed little since El Greco captured it on canvas in 1597, with its golden spires and Gothic buildings spreading across the Tagus River Gorge, overlooking the plains of New Castille. Toledo was established by the Romans in about 192 BC and some Roman ruins are still visible outside the city walls.
Spain itself is the 3rd largest UNESCO Country in the World. If you are unsure what UNESCO is. A World Heritage Site is a place that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as of special cultural or physical significance.

It is so easy to confuse cost and value. Once of the problems with the entire shopping experience is the tendency to focus on cost rather than value. A $79 dollar hotel 20 miles from town is certainly going to be cheaper than the hotels in the center of the city, but cost only tells a small part of the story. Convenience, transportation costs into the city, the quality of the hotel properties and amenities are all important components of value. Remember it is not so much what you PAY as it is what you GET for your money.
