My partner and I stayed in the colony club between 9 and 19 May 2015. On arrival we were offered a cooling fruit cocktail and shown to our room. We had booked a luxury pool room but were upgraded to... Read more a junior suite overlooking the pool and gardens. The room was large with a lovely lounge area, 4 poster bed, beautiful bathroom with a sunken bath and there was a bottle of champagne on ice compliments of the hotel. The pools and beach are lovely and I have to mention Corey and Antonio two of the beach ambassadors who bought us drinks, cold flannels, fruit and savoury snacks. They were delightful with excellent customer service skills. Food in the restaurants at breakfast, lunch and dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Fitness centre is well equipped and Waves beauty salon offered fantastic massages, manicures etc. we booked on a bed and breakfast basis but I would strongly recommend booking a half board option as food was very expensive ( very nice though so worth it) also if you decide to go to Chattel Village to do some shopping walk!! The first time we ordered a taxi and it cost $10 U.S. It only takes 15 minutes to walk!! evening entertainment is very good, usually singers who were all very good. I would strongly recommend The Colony Coub and would choose it again Read less
Our first trip to beautiful Barbados, and the fabulous Colony Clubâ€¦but sure it will not be the last! The hotel was recommended to us by friends who have been visitors for many years, and as expected... Read more we had reservationsâ€¦will it live up to our expectations?? Should not have worried! Everything & everyone at the Colony Club is excellent. Lovely, spacious, very clean Luxury Ocean view room,â€¦.and it REALLY was that! Large bathroom area. Daily cleaning, and evening turn-down service. Good choice at Breakfast. We ate once in the restaurant for the Steak night. Great food,quality Steak, cooked to perfection with accompanying sides. Relaxed atmosphere. Each day at the beach you are served with frozen grapes, canapÃ©s, then afternoon ices. Cold towels are handed to you to help cool down. Excellent service by Antonio. The entire Staff are friendly, welcoming, polite, attentive, and helpful. We spoke to many guests who have been visiting the Hotel for many years now, and they were all very helpful with hints & tips on things to do, places to go etc. Thanks Guys! If you are thinking of going to Barbados, PLEASE give Colony Club a tryâ€¦you will not be disappointedâ€¦..Honest! Read less
First time for us at Colony Club after recommendations from our travel organiser. On arrival we found that one of the rooms we had booked and confirmed had not been allotted to us. This was quickly... Read more resolved by the reception staff, however one of the rooms had been renovated and the other had not, therefore we paid the same price for two rooms of different quality. Although the hotel tries hard to provide a 5 star product, this is not achieved. Breakfast is only served until 0930hrs, unless you want to take it in your room. So if you miss breakfast by a couple of minutes, you can't get anything to eat until 12.30hrs when the sun deck restaurant opens (poor). Considering this is a 5 star hotel, I would expect to be able to stay in the bar after 12 o'clock midnight, however the bar is closed and it's off to bed because there is nothing else on offer. I don't want a party/night club hotel, but as I keep saying, this is a 5 star establishment and I have never known in any hotel across the world that I have visited that the bar closes without question at midnight. Sun lounger wars!!! At 0600 hrs every morning the same people emerge from their rooms with magazines or flip flop in hand to command their entitlement to their own sun lounger. The hotel policy is that loungers cannot be reserved. The management should explain this to the staff because you end up with two rows of unoccupied loungers whilst their 'owners' disappear for hours on end whilst people who have not been so greedy and ignorant are unable to claim a lounger. Management please note. This needs addressing urgently. I don't travel half way across the world, pay a premium rate for a hotel to be treated as though I was in a 2 star hotel in Benidorm. Good points are that the majority of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, although there are one or two grumpy faces now and again. For most of the time service is good, however on occasions we had to wait over half an hour for ordered drinks to arrive. I appreciate that the hotel is situated directly on to the beach, which the public have access to, but it gets a little annoying when you continually have to say no to the beach hawkers. Security is present on the beach, but they don't seem to have much effect. Because the hotel is so close to the sea, it does get weathered, however it is now a little grubby around the edges and not as clean as I expected. Overall a nice hotel, great poisoning, friendly and attentive staff (most of the time) and a relaxing place to be. I would question the 5 star rating and would suggest it is more 3plus - 4 star. Would we return. Possibly, but would try out other options first. Read less
Everything about this hotel is first class. Service is amazing!! Our favourite is Antonio (I think that's his name) from around the pool. He is a credit to the hotel! Staff are always helpful And... Read more smiling! Breakfast is wonderful. Water in the room Every evening, fantastic huge rooms and bathrooms. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we will be rebooking. Read less
When arriving at this hotel you can get the wrong impression if you have travelled a lot! Once you settle in and start enjoying the quiet friendly atmosphere of the hotel you will be very impressed... Read more with it. This hotel is great value for money compared with hotel around this area. The food at the restaurant was amazing (not cheap). If you enjoy your food this restaurant will not disappoint you :-) Read less
