We both love Barbados. Many visits over 20 years to various locations have been experienced from Sam Lords (when open) to this year with 10 days at the Colony Club. Half board selected and a... Read more refurbished de luxe garden room has provided a truly memorable holiday. The refurb design to rooms is tremendous and having viewed but not stayed last year the difference and finish is stunning. The staff all say the chef is young and shy but his daily output is excellent and offers a truly varied a la carte selection. The hotel staff and organisation is focused on you the client having a great vacation! Water sports were such a great team, thanks to Rolls and Jason for the superb ski experience! First time yoga on Thursdays was so well conducted as was Jennifer's Pilates. Restaurant staff were all exceptional with such strong characters defining our enjoyment in such an easy style: Trevor, Livingstone and Monica are just brilliant and new blood stars like Shinietta and Corey display inspired recruitment. Don't miss Thursdays Lobster and Jazz and visit if not staying as its not just outstanding but provides six/eight choices of lobster starters and main! It's a one off choice! No need to venture out just book the half board option and relax at the island's most polished, naturally friendly hotel for the extra special holiday we all crave, Colony Club won't fail! Read less
The Colony Club is a beautiful resort with recently refurbished rooms, and the design of the place is so unique you really feel it was someone's heart felt vision. The pools are lovely and not very... Read more chlorinated, and the beach is so close that you get from your room to the sea in seconds. Points of criticism would be, firstly, whilst the evening meals and Sunday lunch were wonderful the lunches were generally poor and they seemed incapable of chilling a drink to a suitable temperature. Secondly, I know the beach area is somewhat small but you really need sufficient loungers for the capacity of the hotel, and failing that a no reserve policy. It's not Benidorm in the 80s. Finally, whilst some of the staff were lovely (notably Karen on reception), some of them were a bit terse and unfriendly. However my biggest gripe was nothing the hotel can do much about beyond enforcing a little etiquette. I found the place simply attracted a type of clientele who thought they'd 'arrived'. This comprised wannabe 'it' girls swanning about looking down their nose at people, and others variously wearing their munificence on their sleeves. Of course not everyone was like this but I don't think the Colony Club is for you if you just want a good down to earth laugh in pleasant surroundings and company. Read less
We spent 11 nights in the colony club, and loved every second of our stay there. The property itself is amazing, the old colonial building is furnished beautifully and the fact that it is almost... Read more entirely open means that there is nearly always a lovely breeze going through the building. We were staying in an ocean view room that had just been refurbished and it was very stylish and comfortable. Another high point was the general friendliness of the staff - there were of course one or two exceptions to this but overall the staff could not be faulted and it was lovely to be greeted with a smile wherever you were on the property and it really added to the lovely relaxed feel to the hotel. We were recommended the colony by friends who, in particular, raved about the breakfast and it did not disappoint! The breakfast was amazing - the sheer variety of the food was incredible. All these factors combined to make this one of the best places we've ever stayed and the fact that we were in a clear minority of guests as "first timers" to the colony club demonstrates that we are not alone in feeling this way, and we will definitely be returning in the future. The only negative that I can report would be that at the beginning of our trip the beach was not too crowded but towards the end of the trip, when the hotel got busier, the beach got almost uncomfortably busy and it did get quite annoying that often people had placed belongings on the sunbeds by 7.30am and still hadn't come down to the beach by 4pm - probably not a fault of the hotel but it was quite irritating! As a result we would probably be more mindful to avoid higher season when we book our next trip. Read less
We brought a group of 50 to the Colony Club for a week and it far exceeded our expectations. The staff were incredibly friendly but efficient with it. We enjoyed the pools as well as the beach. A... Read more nice touch was regular circulation of little nibbles. The pool bar sometimes struggled with demand but remained good humoured! The hotel did us a superb buffet dinner one night and generally the a la carte was good quality and value. Breakfast buffet also excellent. Rooms were spacious & comfortable and no complaints from any of our party. All had views of pools or beach. Kettles tea and coffee were apprecialted as we woke early with jetlag Read less
Despite the need we all have before we commit our timeand money, I have lost faith in the ability to rely on trip advisor for guidance. Far far too many reviews are so glowing they can only be... Read more either suspect or written by those with little comparative travel experience We were at the colony club last week and it is a Beach hotel with a very narrow too short strip of sand between a row of trees and the sea with sun loungers packed closer than in Cannes. When the tide is high or the waves rough, the two rows become effectively one The staff are split between those who are very helpful and pleasant, with others who are in the wrong industry or jobs For two days we had little no water in our bathroom. It was not helpfully advised and on enquiry handled as "it's a water company problem not ours" The soft furnishings in our two room suite were tired and needed cleaning or replacing The food was good, but the service staff attitudes especially at the inclusive breakfast was on occasions not what I hoped from a hotel with a purported 4 star rating & cost We paid the hotel directly, excluding air fare, and later moved to another hotel where the service and every aspect was far better than 5 star for a minimal extra cost So please, can reviewers in future guide us with meaningful reports of the negatives we need to be aware of and not just the high points And trip advisor - where individual staff are named as being superb, check the source of your published reviews. An excellent example is Read your Buccament Bay review and then google it and read the reported problems and comments on the possible sources of your reviews Read less
