Want to take an all-inclusive vacation in the next few weeks, or even in early 2016? Club Med's Fun in the Sun flash sale offers incredible value -- with rates as low as $95 per person, per night.You'll have to hurry: The deal is only being offered until September 29 for stays of three nights or more between October 3 and April 27, 2016 at five resorts. We did the math and found that guests can save up to a whopping 57 percent, depending on the property.
As you're considering these deals, keep in mind what's included in the resort brand's all-inclusive program: dining, a full open bar, sports and activities, shows, parties, and more. Remember, though, that if you’re not already a Club Med member, an annual membership fee of $60 per adult and $30 per child will be tacked onto your reservation.
Here’s what’s available:
Club Med Punta Cana: For stays October 3-29, plus November 8-11 and 15-18, nightly rates per person start at $135 -- a nice discount from the regular $238. Thinking about putting off the trip until spring? For an example of next year's rates, stays over April 2-20 start at $128. (Without the flash sale, rates are $226 and higher.)
Club Med Cancun Yucatan: Visit any night in October and pay $156 per night per person, typically around $250. And while regular rates for next April are higher here, around $262, the special rates are actually a bit lower still, from $152.
Club Med Sandpiper Bay: Feeling like you need some Floridian flair? We found $122 rates for October 4-6, 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27 at this property in Port St. Lucie. For just $5 more, you can stay November 4-18, January 20-31, February 1-10, or April 2-20. These prices are around half-off the typical rates of $215 and up during the same time.
Club Med Ixtapa Pacific: We already liked the sound of special $114 rates over October 3-8 and 16-31 as well as November 1-18, since they’re regularly $202. But we love the special rates that start at $95 that we found for December 12-16. (Without the promotion, you’re looking at rates from $221 on those nights.)
Club Med Turkoise: Who doesn't want to vacation in Turks and Caicos, one of the dreamiest Caribbean destinations? Here, on travel dates like October 3-28, November 8-30, and December 7-16, find nightly rates from $132 -- almost $100 cheaper than non-promotional rates. Prices soften further to $122 for April, during which they’re normally $214.
Bonus for Families: Have kids or grandkids in tow? Guests ages 4 and under stay for free -- while ages 4-12 can stay for up to 50 percent off the adult price, and children 13-15 can stay for up to 40 percent off.
