TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Having stayed at the sister hotel - The House - which we enjoyed albeit with a few caveats, we were looking forward to our stay here. We were not disappointed and it did score a few brownie points... Read more over the house e.g. more extensive gardens, better pool(s) areas and an on site restaurant. OK, unlike The House, children are welcomed though whilst we were there we did not encounter any overtly boisterous activity just kiddies enjoying themselves which if you cannot do at that age, it is a sorry state. We had a poolside room which was super though the pool was about 3ft deep so not the best for a chubby like me but great for cooling. The pools nearer the beach were deeper so for the 'missus' - a keen swimmer - it was great. Though not expecting to see any, a family of green monkeys turned up outside the rear of our room which was an unexpected treat which gave us a few moments of hilarity. The hotel is expensive as is The House and having talked to others, there are apparently other hotels of a similar stature but offering an all inclusive package which would be an attraction to us next time as meals in the hotel and elsewhere are EXPENSIVE! However, it did not attract from our stay and would seriously consider again. Read less
I have very mixed emotions about this hotel because I did have a wonderful holiday in Barbados and the staff were so friendly. But sadly there were a string of disappointments that cannot be... Read more overlooked, especially when you're paying a significant sum of money to stay here. The first and most important is the fact that the hotel now seems to cater for large package tour holidays. This gives the hotel a bit of a down market vibe. Rather unfairly, it appears that the independent travellers (who invariably pay full price) are given the worst rooms right at the back of the compound, whilst those on the package tours get rooms right on the beach. Second the rooms do need to be updated. The bathrooms appear tired and some appliances just don't work anymore. For example, our air conditioning unit kept leaking water all over the room and bed! Finally (and most annoyingly of all) the hotel management do nothing to stop people laying their towels out on sun loungers early in the morning to reserve places by the pool or the beach. It's absolutely insane - by 7 am people are going out in their pyjamas to chuck towels onto deck chairs! The management need to stop this from happening and remove towels and items that have just been left to reserve places. They also need to remove some of the loungers from the beach - it is currently rammed full of deck chairs that are so close to each other. This looks tacky and is more akin to a cheap Spanish beach resort than a pricey Bajan hotel. Read less
Beautiful design and location, right on the beach with a pool perfect for both kids and adults. Excellent food, superfriendly and helpful staff, the hotel manager Gayle Talma goes out of her way to... Read more make sure that everything is perfect for you. We will definitly come back for many years to come! Read less
Today is the last day of a week long stay here at Colony Club, and I have to say I am very sad!!! This is place is so relaxing, pampering and kid friendly it's awe inspiring. I have be traveling to... Read more Barbados since I was a child (about 39 years), so I have stayed at a lot of places on Barbados. This is my second stay at Colony Club and it's now my home away from home when in Barbados for the next 39 years or as long as I am able to travel. The property is perfect island living, the beach is perfect in the true meaning of the word perfect, and the STAFF from Gayle Talma on down are world leading (so above world class). My 8 year old daughter said it perfectly this morning when the hotel manger asked about her stay. As we all know kids and drunks are the only ones that tell the truth!! :) "It was a great trip BUT next year we are staying two weeks not one" Sean H. George Read less
Our second stay at the Colony Club and quite frankly we will happily return. Our visit was over the Easter holiday and the hotel was in fairly full swing. Being the school holidays it was a true... Read more family hotel with children a plenty. No complaints at all - it did everything it needed to. Lovely staff, clean and well equipped on a beautiful stretch of the platinum coastline. A good honest hotel and with a happy wife & children I can ask for no more. Read less
