TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
A gorgeous hotel right on the beach. Small enough to allow very attentive service by the nicest hotel staff in the world. Great facilities and lots of extra touches such as free ice cold scented... Read more towels, iced water , ice-cream and nibbles brought to your sun bed daily Free watersports such as kayaking , sailing on the beach In house restaurants serve excellent food. Superb rum punches during happy hour. Perfect quiet position in Holetown within easy walk of the town We will definitely return as will many of the other guests we spoke to. Read less
This was our second vacation staying at this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The rooms are of a high standard with free wifi 50in flat screen tvs and all mod cons expected from a good hotel. Ours... Read more had a sea view and steps off our balcony down to the pool. The breakfast offer a wide variety of foods to suit all tastes and can't be faulted. The beach and sea are superb and there is regular bar service on the beach. The food in the evenings is good but with so many top restaurants within a 15 min drive we ate out most nights. The hotel can be a little quiet after 10pm but we were either out or we had drinks by the beach with our friends. I have booked this hotel again this year so that probably says it all. Read less
We have been to Colony Club for a number of years now, so clearly have always enjoyed it! But it has continued to find ways of improving - if you want a relaxed atmosphere but high quality hotel... Read more , then this, in our view, can't be beaten in Barbados. It has a beach front on a lovely small bay; it has the best hotel gardens on the island, kept beautiful by constant work; the free form swimming pools complement the gardens perfectly; the rooms have been updated over the past three years; the kitchens now produce food of a consistently high standard (the international buffet night has, among other things, sushi that the Japanese would be impressed by.) But all this would be undermined if the staff were not first class. They are! In fact, to a person, they are wonderful. There isn't the formality that you might expect in a top, city-centre hotel in London or New York - but that is part of the Bajan charm. And it doesn't stop the service being excellent, even if friendly and informal. For some years now the manager has been Gayle Talma. She has led the general raising of standards on all fronts ( from "generally acceptable" to "first class in all respects"). From the moment we're dropped off at the entrance, the welcome gets us into the holiday mood. We relax at once (helped by the first rum punch!). Dinner varies between the hotel's own (very good) restaurant; and the excellent dining options on the West Coast - from The Cliff for stunning setting and genuine fine dining; to SeaCat (just a couple of minutes walk from Colony Club) for excellent fish and chips! Colony Club has upped its game - for a relaxed high quality holiday in the Caribbean it would take some beating. Read less
Having read reviews on TripAdvisor prior to staying here we were convinced we would struggle to get a sun bed, in fact I emailed the hotel first with our concerns. However, whilst there are... Read more definitely "bed blockers" who have no thought for anyone else, we found we were able to get a bed either on the beach or by the pool each morning. I would also say that they are some of the most comfortable loungers we have ever experienced. As for the hotel itself we were very impressed. Our room which had an ocean view, was good and room service was twice daily with a turndown service. The location is simply stunning on a beautiful stretch of beach which is great for long walks passing by some very impressive villas. As everyone else mentions the staff are friendly and extremely accommodating and the hotel features themed evenings with entertainment. We would certainly return. Read less
This was our third stay at this hotel. Rooms are on the whole lovely- personally prefer the garden rooms away from the beach and pool. Staff are delightful on all levels. Everything is clean and well... Read more kept and the hotel is pretty and quite Boutique in style. Location is excellent right in the middle of St James' close to good restaurants and the town of holetown which is fun. Food in the hotel was average this year- breakfast was good but evening meal very expensive and lacking quality. Restaurant very lacking atmosphere. unfortunately the hotel this year seemed to be more like an old people's home than a swish hotel which may account for the lack of atmosphere- whole place is asleep by 10 pm and although I am far from young I found it a little depressing as not much in the way of jolly chat. Real problems with sun bed bagging which seems to take place at 6 am often by the older fraternity who then only use the beds for a couple of hours! The staff are working hard to address this. I have a great affection for the hotel but not sure I will return as would like a more buzzy atmosphere. Anyone intending to visit Barbados in peak season which is now should book restaurants a minimum of a month before departure as the popular ones are fully booked by the time you arrive. These are the ones I would recommend: Tides, The cliff, Lone star, the fish pot, Mullins for a beach side lunch. All are expensive and very well known . Also book a day trip on R & R ' catamaran- lovely couple who will provide lunch with wine, swimming with turtles and a great family day out. Read less
