Trying to pick a hotel to stay in Barbados? Stop looking, this is it. I have stayed in some nice hotels e.g. Carlton Cannes, Waldorf NYC etc but this really is the best place I have stayed at. We... Read more had a lovely luxury pool room that was clean and new with a large private open space leading directly to a c.20m lagoon (only 1m deep but deep enough to swim). The staff are absolutely first class. Really nice and friendly from the chambermaids to the bar staff to the reception team all were lovely. But it is the little twists that really made this hotel stand out. On their own they are not remarkable but over the course of the week they really add up e.g. rum punch on arrival and in the room, free weekly annual island tour (you pay entry to attractions), short guided tour of their organic herb garden followed by a small free lunch of the herbs you picked, free fishing trip on a motorboat with bait and tackle supplied many more examples… The breakfast was excellent much better than the average slop you get in some hotels. Beautiful carp pond (they also let you feed the fish). 10-15 minute walk into Holetown and a nice small luxury shopping mall and some decent mid-range restaurants surrounding it. The beach is lovely, sandy with rocks on the side so you can have a swim rock free but also snorkel over the rocks at the side to see fish. Diving platform 25m out where you can sunbath or jump off. The West coast sea of Barbados is also a lot calmer. We stayed a week here after a week at the Hilton on the rougher South West point. The Hilton was much cheaper but I wish I had spent the two weeks here. Of course you can find faults (the free wifi was constantly cutting out but they have 3 free computers that always worked and who goes on holiday to go to the internet?) The gardens are lovely but frequently dropped flowers and leaves into the water etc. Basically if you went looking for faults I'm sure you'll find plenty of minor ones but on the whole this place is unbeatable. Many of the guests I spoke to were repeat visitors, I know why… Read less
The colony club made our trip to Barbados. It was excellent and we would go back time and time again. 5 of us travelled myself and partner, our 4 year old and my parents. The rooms were beautiful... Read more , large spacious, clean and niceley decorated. Had no complaints whatsoever. The food was out fo this world we went full board and every meal was a good as the last. The service, everyone was friendly and would be happy to help at any point, some great characters there for sure! The beach was lovely and the pools were beautiful, the sunbeds were beyond comfy and it was just so relaxing. Really would recommend the only quarm I had was there was little to do at night after eating, but to be honest after dinner we were all sof ull and relaxed we were ready for bed anyway!! Read less
Our first visit to the Caribbean, and hopefully not our last. We very much enjoyed our stay here at the Colony Club, made all the better by friendly helpful attentive and careing and considerate... Read more staff who genuinely appear to enjoy being so. The room we took at the rear of the complex was spacious clean and quiet with a nice shaded terrace, where we could while away the time planning our next siteseeing, when we could tear ourselves away from this little gem in paradise.

Very happy with this hotel. Booked one of the more basic rooms situated back from the beach but actually thought this was better as room was very quiet without the busy beach/pool area. Excellent... Read more choice of food for breakfast but was not impressed by the only dinner taken which was overpriced for what it was. A number of small eateries are a short walk outside the hotel for a more informal local atmosphere. Very good bus service runs from just outside the hotel to Bridgetown at a flat rate of 2 BBD if you want to avoid taxis all the time and do not have a hire car. Read less
