This was our fourth Club Med vacation. As usual, I was full of doubts as our departure date got closer. As soon as we arrived at Rio das Pedras I knew my fears were unfounded. The resort itself may not be quite as "fancy" as the other Club Meds we've visited (Ixtapa, Cancun, and Punta Cana), but the atmosphere is...

Its amazing to witness the enthusiasm of the Club Med staff. The high energy is infectious. Smiles and greetings all day long from the bosses right down to the servers and cleaning staff. This is a mature property but it is aging well. Grounds manicured. Rooms spacious and clean. Enormous eating hall with excellent selection in buffet style. Kids club...

This was Good for the place, but quite below other ClubMed services and GO team, namely Mauritius Albion and Cancun. There wasn't any beach lunch or party and the shows were weak (only 2 within a week were fair enough - the worst Michael Jackson show I've seen), because the training of the team seemed to not exist. Finally, a...

South of Rio de Janeiro, the Village of Rio das Pedras nestles amid lush greenery set at the edge of a long beach in Brazil. The Village's colonial style bungalows mingle in harmony with the surrounding wildlife. The large seafront swimming pool lies next to the restaurant where after a day of water-skiing or excursions, a variety of buffets await you. Here in this unique location, the live music and warmth of the Brazilian welcome will sweep you away into another world. ... more   less

Dear Clubmed team!

We have to report a complaint about unprofessional and unethical behaviour of management of Rio Das Pedras resort in Brazil. Could you please advise how this can be done?

 

Please kindly find below a description of the event.

My wife and 2-years old daughter are currently staying in Rio Das Pedras resort in Brazil (January 10 to 23, 2015). They arrived on Saturday, January 10th 2015. The stay was relatively smooth till Monday, January 12th.

 

On Monday morning they both were swimming in a small pool located in the remote part of the resort (piscina calma). They were approached by a Clubmed employee requesting them to leave the pool since (as per employee explanation) it was 'for adults only'. This did not happen on Saturday and Sunday though (since employee was not on duty during those days).

 

It should be mentioned that this is the only pool which has shadow in the morning hours. Since our daughter is sun intolerant, this was the only option for her to swim without being exposed to direct sun. So my wife asked for an explanation from resort management.

 

Mr. Nicola Perucchio, a village manager, arrived and stated again that this is 'adults only' pool. This restriction however is not mentioned in any of the resort descriptions and is an absolute nonsense in a family resort.

 

Then he behaved in unprofessional and unethical manner: (which was witnessed by several guests around)

  •Mr. Perucchio stated that my wife and daughter must leave the pool immediately.

  •Instead, they should go to a pool in Petit Club (where our daughter is inscribed for the entire stay). Since it is exposed to direct sun during the whole day, Mr. Perucchio said that they would bring an umbrella and an electrical ventilator to the pool. This option is extremelly hazardous so it was rejected by my wife.

  •Then Mr. Perucchio stated that my wife and daughter can use 'adults only' pool outside of working hours (before 9am or after 6pm). However, during this time the pool is cleaned and desinfected so it might be harmful.

  •This conversation finished with Mr. Perucchio threatening and intimidating my wife that he would call security 'to take them out from the pool if they do not leave now' (quote). He also called her 'crazy' in front of other guests and personnel.

 

My wife took this very close and had an emotional breakdown. She called me crying and being very nervous. As a result, the next night she was feeling bad and could not sleep.

 

Please I appreciate your assistance in investigating this case. This is absolutely unacceptable for a family resort to have management that threats a woman with a small child and make them crying instead of enjoying vacations. Please contact me so I can provide the details as well as contacts of the witnesses of the incident.
