The two restaurants will tempt you to dine in house or lively Bridgetown is just a short drive away and well worth exploring.

This was our second visit to The Club and we were disappointed. The hotel is due to close so perhaps this is the cause of the hotel being so run down. Food was ok - but everything tasted of bacon fat. Breakfasts were good. The room was clean and large with an amazing view. The drinks were seriously lacking. No tonic, no diet mixers, no fizz and really poor range of top shelf drinks. Staff are lovely and made the resort. Collision, Cheryl, Elvis are to name a few. The sports staff, esp Dana, are excellent. But you can't canoe or hobby cat from the hotel. Snorkeling is good. When we arrived the hotel was packed with a cruise ship set of guests. I mean packed - it was rammed. Really very unpleasant. The hotel couldn't cope with the volume of demands. This really spoilt our trip and in the end we wanted to come home. The room whilst large and clean was close by the entertainment area so at night it was difficult to sleep. The music did generally stop by 11pm but the volume until then was bad. The general manager ignored us. The other managers kept passing our concerns down the 'chain of command'. All in all really poor leadership. We were very sad, as we so enjoyed our first trip. The hotel needs to decide the type of holiday guest they wish to attract. The previous week we had spent at a sister hotel in Antigua - Pineapple Beach. This was amazing. We wish we had stayed in Antigua. Read less

Part of a cricket tour type holiday for just a week. Clean hotel, nice room but traffic noise did wake us early. Food was good, buffet breakfast and lunch and then served meal with a few choices on menu in the evening. Service was at Caribbean speed. The bbq night was good. Entertainment in evenings was good and not intrusive. Small bar area was pleasant too. If you walk to the right(standing back to dining room) along the path passed a few villas you get to a lovely beach and the sea is clear, clean and warm, the other side of the small reef snorkeling trips anchor up. You can snorkel too if you want either with own equipment or get from hotel. Nice to sit on terrace looking out to sea with a gin and tonic for sundowners. A nice week of winter sun. We had a few very short showers so take your cheapy brolly in your pool bag. Read less

I have just spent a delightful week at the Club Barbados, after a week long cruise we decided to have a week just to chill out and the Club Barbados is just the place. I have read the reviewsand find some off them very strange , I wondered if i was stayig at the same hotel? Yes Checking in was a long drawn out affair butwhen you have a volume of people all arriving from a cruise ship that was to be expected. The Staff at this hotel were excellent could not fault them, Bar Man Collis was a very good bar man and a nice bloke as well. The Food was very goodin both resturants could not fault it. The rum bar was a good alternative for adrink. The Beache bar , well yes it was on a beach and it was a bar , what more do you expect from a Beach Bar. The rooms werein need of some paint but lets remeber this was the end of a 6 month season so it was looking a bit tired. The Beach was not as you would expect but the sea wasvaccesible. The only down side i would say to the management please get an area designated for smokers as some of the American travellers seem to think you can light up a cigar any were you want, very annoying a designated area would solve this problem. The only other problem is spend some money on the steps tomake accessing the Sea on the Beach easier. A longer set of steps would be beneficial. But overall the Hotel was very good. Read less

We are here from 6-13 May had a beach view suite which was lovely amazing views over the Ocean. Fantastic friendly people excellent varied menu with lots of variety. The shows in the evening were also very good with really professional artistes - would recommend this as a resort - the staff could not do enough for you. Typical Bajan decor with lots of charm. Would also recommend the boat trip for snorkelling and swimming with the turtles. Also Amir and his island tour - he is really knowledgable and takes you to places that you would perhaps not visit normally!discovering different elements of this beautiful Island. Read less
