TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
My husband and I stayed here several nights prior to boarding a cruise ship. The brief stay at this resort was one of the overall highlights of our 10 day trip (including the cruise!) The grounds... Read more are lovely; the beach small but very nice, the water sports available to guests were plentiful. The food was very good - but huge portions! We split two meals and were very glad we did. The setting at the resort around the bar area makes it inviting to meet other people. The time we were there, we were outnumbered by guests from the UK. Made conversation interesting and lively. We were surprised at the price however - and have been told by numerous people that Barbados is just expensive. I'd love to return - and would want to stay at this same location. Read less
This was our second stay at this lovely hotel which is part of the Elegant Hotels Group. My wife used to also go there in her teenage-years with her parents - this really is a hotel that people come... Read more back to - they even have a returning guests cocktail party each week! The staff are very friendly and there is minimal turnover, this in itself says a lot. The beach is very nice if a little crowded and sun bed competitive, but there is ample pool space to compensate. lunches and certain dinners on the large and well appointed sun deck are very nice, the food good and the wine list extensive. with so many top class restaurants in the area within ten minutes we elected to stay B&B this time eating in the hotel perhaps just two nights a week but lite lunching and taking breakfast each day. the Gym is quite well appointed but gets crowded and this they need to take account of in my view.

The whole visit to Barbados rates as one of the most enjoyable holidays I have ever had (spanning several years)! So many, many friendly people, ideal weather (early December, not overbearingly hot... Read more ) and just so relaxing. I could go on.....the reggae buses, Oistins fish fry, island tours (especially by the famous Ted), the sunsets from the hotel beach and more . Now the Colony Club, which played a major role in making the holiday so great. A lovely location on the west coast bordering a sandy beach, and the various types of accommodation set amongst gardens with tall trees, some providing shady areas, and swimming pools. Plenty of choice for breakfast, very occasionally in the two weeks there may have been a short wait for a table, but, hey your on holiday - this also applies to the birds that visited from time to time, but it was pleasant not to be sitting surrounded by brick walls. Sometimes we ate in, and sometimes we ate out. A big choice of eateries available nearby, particularly Hole Town, 15 minutes stroll (holiday mode), B$2 on the bus, or 20B$ in a taxi - you take your choice. Taxis available at the hotel at a moments notice. Whatever we ate at Colony Club we enjoyed, and it was fun trying out some of the other places, we made only one dodgy selection! I have no complaint about any the members of Colony Club staff plus those running the speedboat trips. They contributed so much to the holiday. Now, once or twice you may not receive a customary greeting, but if you smile and greet the person......he/she they responds. It would be unfair to pick any out, but the beach ambassadors were something else providing a much appreciated service. The occasional seller on the beach did not worry us. They only came along now & then and left you alone as soon as you said no thanks. As all beaches are public, the hotel has no control over them but they did not seem to cross the boundary into the hotel grounds. We were pleased with our ground floor luxury poolside room. Decent size for two and a pleasant patio with access to the lagoon pool. Room service was to a high standard, not always done at the same time each day but the staff would return later if inconvenient when they arrived. The tree frogs call continuously during the hours of darkness but I didn't notice them after the first night. Finally, the sun beds. Ahh, the really comfortable sun beds. Much has been written about the sun beds. It is such a shame to watch a lonely hat or bottle of suntan lotion laying for an hour or much longer on a sunbed with no one for company, when all you want to do is to find two sunbeds together with your chosen company. I say no more, except we are returning later this year. Anyone got two sunbeds that fit in your hand luggage?! Read less
It is hard to beat the Colony Club. The location on one of the best beaches on the west coast is fantastic. Good water sand and swimming right next to the bar ! Able to walk a long way on the beach... Read more . The hotel rooms are varied and spacious. The restaurant provides varies and quality food. The pools are more for dipping in to cool off rather than swimming... But then there is the beach. The buildings tastefully surround well kept gardens. The staff and management are helpful friendly and efficient. Easy to walk to Holetown. Not as glitzy or as highly specified as some other quality Barbados hotels. But if you want a high quality friendly hotel, superbly located, the Colony Club is an ideal choice. Read less
Wonderful holiday, loved the hotel & it's location, staff very friendly and everything was great except the situation with guests reserving sun loungers at some unearthly hour in the morning by... Read more placing small items on them and then not actually using the beds for hours. Very annoying, particularly when you try to find a bed later & you can't find one (but there will be a number occupied by just a "Book","Suncream" or a "Hat" rather than a person!!).This happened to us on occasions and we ended up going back to sit on our terrace rather than being on the beach or by the pool. We often went for a walk at sunrise and it was amazing to see how many beds were already "reserved". Why do people feel they have to do this, it's crazy!! A difficult one to sort but Hotel management need to address this problem. I understand there is supposed to be a sun lounger for every guest but something is going wrong somewhere. Do Colony Club have any suggestions on how to resolve it? We've booked to stay again later this year, we hope the situation has improved by then. Read less
