TazzDiscovers spent their recent #WestCoastTwist at Club Mykonos in Langebaan on the West Coast Way Foodie Route and Scenic Route
I’ve grown up hearing about Club Mykonos in Langebaan, but it has taken 38 years for me to actually stay there. Back in the days of time share, many friends and family members spoke about taking holidays there and it sounded idyllic. The very idea of living in a luxurious home for a week (instead of your own) where you could stay up as late as you wanted, while you visited the restaurant for every meal, was my idea of heaven.
Club Mykonos in Langebaan
We spent the night in a very luxurious apartment, right on the marina as part of our recent #WestCoastTwist and loved the family friendliness of the resort. Situated across the way from the kid’s club, we were spoiled for choice in terms of restaurants while the kids could run around and play and we could enjoy a meal in (relative) peace. When we checked in, we were issued with a map as well as a schedule of kiddies events that we could enjoy for the duration of our stay. The kids could choose whether they wanted to watch a movie or sign up for a craft activity instead. We were a little pressed for time though so, we chose to grab a pizza and take a walk to see all the facilities.
From indoor (and outdoor) swimming pools, mini golf, health spas and casinos, there is something to do, no matter what you enjoy doing. If you don’t have access to your own yacht, you can choose to take to the water on a boat tour or just laze about on the beach. It is a resort where you can easily spend a few weeks without ever getting bored. In fact, it may take a few weeks to actually enjoy all the facilities you have access to.
Once we arrived back at our home for the night, we had just enough time to cook a quick meal which we enjoyed while watching the seals play between the boats. We found the music from the neighbouring restaurant to be fairly intrusive however, it did stop at 9pm so we could enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Our apartment was a home away from home. With cozy beds and fluffy throws, we snuggled up on the couch, watching movies, before the kids went to bed. Once they were tucked up in their beds, these parents got to break out the chocolate as we chatted about the day and made pans for the rest of our trip.
Of course, as every parent knows, “sleeping-in” is a foreign concept so we were up with the seals (who never actually seemed to go to sleep in the first place). Watching dawn break over the marine was a sight to behold, and freezing toes were a secondary concern as we tried to take as many pictures as possible.
Sunday morning cartoons are something the kids aren’t really used to, but they enjoyed catching up on their favourites while we whipped up breakfast and started gathering out things together. Ideally, it would have been perfect is we could stay another night so that we could experience the spa and casino, however, check-out approached quite quickly, and it was time to go.
As we fondly said goodbye to our home away from home and headed back to the reception desk to sign out and hit the road for our next destination, we started making plans to come back, and experience Club Mykonos in Langebaan properly.
