The main languages at Club Med are in general French and English. Next to that, the language of the country the village is located (i.e. Italian in Italian villages, etc.).
Since I am a regular in Mauritius, I can tell you that La Pointe and Albion are very French (since it's also spoken on the island itself, English being the offical language though). The Mauritians speak Creole (a bit different from the Caribbean Creole) among themselves which you can understand a bit, if you're fluent in French.
Most of the GO team speaks pretty good English just like the CDV. The actual CDV Aziz in Albion is Moroccan and is multilingual. Maybe you know him from Rio das Pedras.
Announcements are made in French and English, since you'll find quite some South Africans, Australians and more and more SE Asian GMs there.
Usually, you'll also have at least one GO at either village from Italy, South Africa, Japan, maybe Korea or Tawain also.Country information from CM's web page:
