TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
The hotel had a lot of what I was looking for: not too big nor too small, a wonderful calm beach, kids friendly but nor specific for children, good food. I was surprised, positively, by the great... Read more amount of complimentary water activities as well as of other tours, etc. Rooms were great, they had a kids club, my kid really enjoyed everything. Visuals are very nice too! Kid loved feeding the fishes. A lot of great restaurants nearby. Negative surprises: I had read several reviews about how everybody in the staff is nice and polite, and while some were indeed and really wanted to help, some were almost rude and not helpful at all. Maybe some guidance and training can help, because this was a problem we met almost everywhere in Barbados, with very few exceptions. Other negative issues: people "reserving" the beach lounges for hours while they go do other stuff. I ended up having to go to a farther pool with my child or sitting far because someone left a book in a chair at 6 am and the chair remained empty in front of me. Not the hotel's fault, of course, but maybe they could adjust the number of chairs and adopt more strict guidelines for using the beach and pool structure. After all, still think it was the best option for my family, really enjoyed the stay and it was unforgettable for my kid, which was the whole point of the trip. Read less
We just returned from our vacation in mid July 2014. This was our first time in Barbados and we did a ton of research on the Island and hotels before landing on a few. Colony Club was our first... Read more stop. We are a family of four, with two kids 13 and 11. This resort is amazing (and I use the word resort because not all all hotels in Barbados are resorts). The staff is so friendly from the moment we arrived. Below is an overview: 1. Beautiful resort! 2. Get room 111 if possible. It is a garden view, Jr. suite that steps right out to the pool with the waterfall. 3. Rum punch is great - though be careful, it is lethal. :) 4. Incredible beach - we visited three beaches and this is by far the best. Calm, clear, not rocky at all. 5. Great activities - swam with turtles, water skiing, snorkeling. 6. Food - the food is great and the breakfast each morning was excellent. 7. Family friendly - we met two other families while there. The kids ran around all week while we were there and it was great to be able to let the kids roam the resort and know they were completely safe. We try to never go back to the same places twice, but believe we will be coming back here again. Our other two hotels were Ocean Two and Tamarind. I will write separate reviews on them. Colony Club will not let you down if you are looking for a fantastic resort in Barbados west side. Read less
We came here on our honeymoon for 8 days in July, 2014. The hotel was amazing, we had a great time. Some of our favorite aspects: -Watersports! They have a huge selection of included... Read more activities--water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, banana boating, along with hobby cats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and snorkel gear. We were never bored if we wanted to do something. -They also have great complimentary tours included (SUP turtle tour, deep sea fishing, walks to town)--though if you want to participate book as soon as you arrive, they get filled up. And beach cricket on Saturdays! -even Pilates, yoga, and other classes are all included. -the beach is great--there is some coral off the beach which is great for snorkeling--if you want though just to the right of the resort there is a public beach with no coral. -They bring around vegetable canapes, fruit and ice cream around 10 AM and some afternoons--which was just great!! -The staff is really great and eager to please. Very helpful. We switched rooms to be on the third floor for a better view and they were happy to accommodate. -Breakfast buffet had a great selection and was always very tasty (which is a surprise for a large buffet!). Lunch and dinner were not super cheap but were delicious! -Happy Hours are great--and the afternoon happy hour comes with complimentary sweet potato crisps. -Very close to holetown which has a great deal of dining recommendations (The Tides is a perfect splurge meal!) We wish we were back already. Read less
First went to the Colony Club October 2013 for a week had a great time but it was too short. Went back this year July 2014 and took our 2 daughters for 10 days . We all had a great time and did not... Read more want to come home. The staff are exceptional very attentive to your every need . Rooms are very nice , kept to a high standard. The water sports are great and Jason and Keo do everything to accommodate you. Read less
This was my 5th visit and we agreed the best yet. I have been with both family and mums and daughters trips and this hotel has been fantastic for both. Pros: - The beach/sunset deck/pool area is... Read more absolutely idyllic. Great that you can sit on the deck or the pool and actually be by the sea. (Note most or all of the other comparable hotels have the pools at the back often all in shade) - The beach is big, lots of space to sit and beach ambassadors who bring canapes, fruit and ice cream as well as come round for drinks orders - Food is delicious (breakfast, dinner and deck all day menu all great) - Happy hour cocktails - Water sports boys (Jason, Roy and Keon) are all excellent, really helpful and very friendly. - Good proximity to Holetown, approx a 10/15 min walk or a 5 min bus ride, we were a group of girls and felt very safe and the locals were so helpful. - Sun loungers are very comfortable Cons (or maybe points to note rather than cons): - The wifi is good in the rooms but round the pool and beach is very difficult to connect. However I would point out you are on a holiday and if your wifi need is that desperate there is a beautifully air-conditioned computer room or you get better wifi on the chairs in the pool 'island'. - Depending on who serves you some cocktails do seem to contain slightly less alcohol at happy hour Read less
