I can’t wait to share this review of Club Med in Sandpiper Bay, Florida!

A little backstory first…

We had originally planned a family vacation to the Punta Cana location of Club Med, but with all of the craziness happening there, we decided to switch our trip to Sandpiper Bay, Florida. Thankfully, Club Med was very accommodating and switched our lodging with just a small penalty. The airline, however, was not so accommodating. Whomp whomp. Mal and I joke that we took the most expensive trip EVER to Florida. We had a great time, but, whoa, it was expensive. (FYI: This vacation was not sponsored in anyway; I’ve had no contact with Club Med’s influencer/media team.)

Instead of my usual vacation blog recap, I decided to go a different route with a video review. I had a lot to say about our vacation and wanted to make sure that I gave you guys a full review of everything. We absolutely loved our time at Club Med Sandpiper Bay and highly recommend it, especially if you have kids. We really had THE BEST time!! You’ll definitely see my enthusiasm come through in this video review of Club Med in Sandpiper Bay, Florida! 🙂

Review of Club Med in Sandpiper Bay, Florida

Day 1:

  • Quinn was PUMPED about the bunk bed + tv in his room!
  • He was also psyched about all of the lizards and birds around the resort
  • Quinn learned how to do a backwards flip underwater
  • Part of Quinn’s dinner included a mug of white chocolate from a fountain at dinner
  • We went late-night swimming, which was definitely one of our favorite activities!
  • Quinn ate shrimp for the first time! 🙂

I brought 2 pairs of sunglasses on my trip. Both are the HALE from Kohv. You can save 10% of any pair of Kohv sunglasses with code carrotsncake!

Day 2:

  • Mal and I participated in AquaFit (water aerobics)
  • We spent almost the whole day in the pool
  • Our happy hour included a round of pina coladas and Go Fish
  • Quinn participated in a Mini Club performance. He was Pikachu (his favorite Pokemon), and I cried when I saw him dressed up and dancing on stage. We were so proud of him, and he did such a great job!

My rainbow hat is from the RUN PROUD line at Brooks.

Day 3:

  • Mal, Quinn, and I went paddle boarding!
  • Then, we spent the rest of the day at the pool
  • Quinn swung on the trapeze!
  • It was tropical night!

My romper and sandals are both from thredUP.

Looking for more family vacation recommendations?



  1. This looks like an absolutely incredible vacation! I’m so sorry to hear about the airline – that can be the most difficult part, I experienced something similar years ago. The resort looks like a beautiful one and I love all the bathing suits you wore! They are the kind I’ve been looking for.

  2. Looks like a great trip. We too were supposed to go to Punta Cana. First tropical vacation with my kids and wanted to do it before the oldest went off to college. Had to cancel and ended up at the Kingsmill Resort in Virginia. Did Busch Gardens and Water Country. The resort was super nice so I was happy with that. We had same experience with the airlines as you did. We have five tickets that we are not sure we will be able to use before they expire, plus if we do we will have to pay even more money. Bummer on the money end. Better safe than sorry though.

    1. I’m glad it worked out in the end for both of us! And, yes, dealing with airlines is so frustrating! They just keep charging you more and more money!

  3. Isn’t Club Med the best? My family went to various Club Meds while I was growing up and I remember adoring the Mini Club. I’ve since gone to the Cancun resort as an adult a few times and still really really love the activities and trapeze. You got me wanting to book a vacation 🙂

  4. We went to two Club Meds growing up – one was the same one I assume in Florida and the other was in the Bahamas. It was years ago, but I remember there were a lot of families that went to the Florida location every year during spring break. And it was tough as a kid coming into the kids club because there were a lot of cliques and the kids mostly all knew each other already. I’m curious – did you encounter families that go the same week every year? It sounds like Quinn had an amazing time – which is great! It’s great to hear that maybe that’s not as big of an issue now and/or during other times of the year.

    1. We didn’t encounter that. Quinn seemed to make some friends there, but I’m sure it happens for spring break. We’re debating going back in Feb or April, so we’ll see!
