There is just no way.
I was recently asked how beachtag could hope to compete with the Club Med all inclusive Option in Mauritius. My answer was quite simple, there is no way that Club Med could hope to compete with the beachtag all inclusive options at Le Mauricia, Le Canonnier, Le Victoria and the all inclusive 5 star property Shandrani . As you know beachtag represent Beachcomber because we love Beachcomber, as the preeminent Hotel Grouping in Mauritius they undoubtedly had access to the best sites and therefore present simply the best properties on the Island to this day, with the ultimate in service & staff who continuously portray remarkable enthusiasm.
Granted that Club Med first came up with the all inclusive scheme which undoubtedly offers good value, but here is the trick - did you know that Beachcomber also offers the all inclusive offer at Le Mauricia, Le Canonnier, Le Victoria & at the 5 star all inclusive Shandrani, all of which offer not just good value but magnificent value. So what is the difference I hear you say? Well firstly my impression of Club Med is that it is fashioned on the "with apologies" old Fully Inclusive Butlins methodology where everyone can do whatever they want, when they want so long as it is part of the programme. Club Med have these GO's (glorified PR officers that to be frank generally get on the guests nerves, very similar to the Old Butlins Red Coats) who organize your holiday within an inch of its life, freedom & flexibility is not part of the programme. If you are going to relax & unwind be warned as this is not part of the programme. The hotels can not be compared on a like for like basis & Club Med trades on the fact that the all inclusive Beachcomber option is not as well known in the South African market place. The facts stand for themselves, Beachcomber resorts are of a far higher quality, rooms are more spacious, beaches are well structured & inviting, guest relations are always present but not in your face & the overall experience is undoubtedly far superior at all Beachcomber Resorts.
Whilst it is not my intention to knock what is a quality product, comparisons between Club Med & Beachcomber are to be frank - unfair. Beachcomber in my opinion is far superior in all respects, for the party set Le Mauricia, Le Canonnier offer a vibey nightlife & great entertainment but more at your choice & less in your face. For those clients looking for an energetic, casual but lively holiday - Club Med is good but Beachcomber is fantastic. For those just wanting to chill and to enjoy what the island has to offer Beachcomber is the only choice. Combine all of this with professional staff, brilliant resorts, magnificent beaches & superior facilities and the only question really becomes - why was I not aware of the Beachcomber all inclusive options?
