Here we are, back from an amazing trip to Club Med Cap Skirring. After a lot of problems with Transavia last time, it took us a while to go back. But, we're happy we did it!

The +'s of this village:
- The village itself :-) you really have the feeling to be in Africa.
- No problems with Transavia this time. Really friendly staff and even the food was ok.
- The GO team: even if the CDV didn't blow us away (our feeling is that he's only there for the "habitués" of Cap Skirring and quite invisible and not always honestly friendly for the others), the GO team was full of energy!
- The GE's! Always friendly and helpful.
- The golf is one of the reasons we came back to this village. Great responsable Bacary, golf-team, caddies,... You're not going to Cap Skirring for the best golf course, but for the total experience! We loved it!
- Sailing: thanks to the sailing team for the great trips, tips and tricks ;-) I was always feeling really welcome!
- No reservation of chairs, tables,... possible anymore :-) conclusion, you can always find a spot where you want to.
- White and Senegalese evening around the swimming pool.
- One of the only villages where you still have the real Club Med "Esprit" with for example a lot of big tables where GM's can meet each other.
- The room surprised us! We had a nice and clean room with sea view totally at the end of the village.

The -'s of this village:
- The restauration is good, but the food is not always hot like it should be.
- Swimming pool: water is way to cold! Even during the aqua gym I was still freezing. It's not a surprise that the swimming pool is always empty...
- After all those years, still no flight possible from Brussels...
- Maybe it would be nice to propose African activities such as Djembe or percussion lessons, dance classes, cooking lessons,...
- The quality of the excursions is ok, but they are way too pricy

25 years @ Club Med now. Price-quality maybe not the best village, but Cap Skirring is one big experience that you can only love! Thanks and see you next year ;-)

Disappointed as far as Club Med is concerned. Expected better room and WiFi for the expensive deal.
Food was good considering the large amount of guests. Entertainment was very good. Staff great. The offer of activities is not bad!

Very nice place with very nice people. Climate is wonderful. Golf is only 9 holes but it allows you to do something else the same day. Rooms are OK and above african standard. Food is excellent and everyday different choices. Better to specify if you prefer yr room to be closed ro the bar/resto or if you prefer a little more quiet and a nice sea view from the zen place it can be a big difference walking. A lot of sun beds and beach is huge. Really to recommend. If you can bring clothes and school material for the kids it will give you a very nice feelings believe me...

As the family are Club Med travellers, we had something to celebrate and decided to head to Cap Skirring. The one on everyone's to do list.

1) Beautiful renovated Club
2) Great Chef de village. Soirée blanche tombée dans l'eau, the chef is running around with his crew to have everything sorted and willing even in between to go on a picture. Awesome job Jeremy.
3) Stan, golf teacher. Born to do this. Learned a lot. Thx Stan.
4) Please go out and take the excursion Legende d'Afrique. Great day, seen a lot and puts even your own life in perspective.
5) Thank you to Club Med Ghent and Wendy Claeys for arranging a marvelous room. Great service.

One big big big disappointment and unfortunately big part of the trip: crappy Transavia flight. Funny to hear @ the club that even French travelers are heading to Brussels to catch the Dakar Brussels airlines flight. Instead of the Paris Orly one. So even if the management in Paris didn't even have the respect to answer my letter, please do something as your GM's are looking for alternatives.
On top, For a full flight, the only two rear toilets were open. This to keep it quiet for the Gold and silver members in the front. You had a waiting line of more the half of the length of the airplane. Not pleasant for the people with aisle seats, but we had on top persons fainting, who were waiting.

So, GREAAAT club, but as other GM's, happy to come back asap when you have a decent Brussels flight making sure you can go to the toilet in a normal manner.

Caroline, from Belgium, week 5-12 November 2012. With the family.

We are back from a great week @ Club Med Cap Skirring. It was the season opening for the village (first week after raining season), but we didn’t feel that once arrived. The G.O.-team was well organised. Overall we had a great stay, and I’m sure we will go back another time, once they put a flight from Brussels instead of Paris.

The positive things about the village:

- A great G.O. and G.E.-team, with a great talented ‘Chef de village’. Merci Jérémy!

- Beautiful Club Med with nice gardens, common areas, … even in the village you can feel you are in Africa. In the most Club Meds you don’t have that feeling.

- People are complaining about the room, but I still don’t understand why… We had a nice room on the first floor (better then the down floor I think), with a great view on the beach/sea. Ok, it’s a 4 tridents Club Med, but the room has everything you need. You are only inside to sleep… The decoration is very nice, in the same line then the common areas, you can feel you are in Africa!

- The Golf! Every day we were at the clubhouse for the group lessons and the 9 holes. I want to thank whole the golf-team for their professional approach and kindness. Stan, Bacary, Martin, Dédé (the chief), … But also a special thanks to our caddies René and Matthias!
By the way… Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

- A special mention for LouLou at the tennis. Great group lessons and always a lot of energy. You were a pleasure to watch on the shows :o)

- Cap Skirring, and whole the region around the Casamance, is a great area to discover. We did one excursion witch was really good (maybe a little pricy).

- The food is really well presented and tasty. Maybe they need to bring a little more variation to be on the level of a 4 tridents Club Med, but it’s ok!

- Thanks Omar for the surf casting (fishing at the beach). Not a lot of fish in the sea when I was there, but I’ve got a real beautiful one :o)

- A really nice beach with a sea at 30°. No wind to sail… Maybe it would be a good idea to put body boards at the sailing house, because the waves are fantastic!

- Not unimportant, we had a really nice weather. One thunderstorm during the 2nd day (1 hour) and one during night, but nothing terrible.

The negative things:

- There are not a lot of negative things to say, but the TRANSPORT was a real nightmare. We thought we have had our dose on our way to Cap Skirring (1h blocked in de bus and plane in Paris, because of the catering witch didn’t arrive), but our way back was horrible. The check-in in Cap Skirring was really slow, and after my luggage was gone, they told me my tennis racket was not allowed as hand luggage (why it is from Paris to Cap Skirring then?). After the security control we waited in a little room for quiet a long time, cause they had troubles with the luggage getting in the plane. They were throwing with our luggage, while everyone could see it… The take off was 1h too late, but the pilot told us we would only stay 30 minutes at Dakar to be sure we will not be too late in Paris. Unfortunately, from then on everything went wrong. We stayed more then 3h in the plane at Dakar before taking off. Why? The catering AGAIN!!! Because of our late arrival, impossible to land in Orly where we were supposed to land. To Charles de Gaule then, were we arrived at 1:00 AM (instead of 9:45 PM at Orly), to take a bus to Orly (more then 45 minutes away) to finally arrive in our hotel at 3:00 AM to pick up our car to go back to Belgium. Finally we arrived at 8:00 AM, so our workday was gone, cause we could use some sleep.
A question for Club Med: Why are you still flying with TRANSAVIA, witch is a LOW COST company? I think we pay enough to get a normal company no?
Why are there still no planes from Brussels if 65% of the G.M.’s on the plane is from Belgium?
A little detail… more then 6 hours in a plane where you have no room to stretch your legs, not normal in my eyes. The food was horrible too.

- We had a lot of dogs and cats in the restaurant, witch is not very hygienic if you ask me. They were not very tidy and had fleas and wounds everywhere. One word: Bwark! The worse thing is that some G.M.’s were feeding them and insulting G.O.’s who tried to get them away.

- The local market on Tuesday and Saturday (in the Club Med) is a little pricy. The people are really friendly in the beginning, but once you don’t want do buy something or you buy it at a price they think is too low, they lose there kindness.

What can be a + for the village?
- Body boards
- Yoga and/or Tai Chi at the beach
- African dance lessons instead of Salsa… We are in Africa!
- Djembé lessons

Conclusion: A great Club Med, the best I did, but Club Med needs to change the transport to bring it to a higher level. You need to do that club once in your life!
