The hotel

This adults-only, all inclusive resort is perfect for a relaxing holiday in the Barbados sun. Situated on the west coast and overlooking the Caribbean sea, it’s a peaceful place to while away sunny afternoons with a good book and a refreshing drink. Tucked away and intimate, there’s a split-level swimming pool and a full-service spa, offering couples massage, aromatherapy salt scrubs and body wraps or build up an appetite for dinner by diving into the abundance of water sports. The two restaurants will tempt you to dine in house or lively Bridgetown is just a short drive away and well worth exploring. The Rum Shop Bar is a true Bajan experience, where you can partake in Rum tasting, as well as being a great place to round off another day in paradise. Join the Sunset Restaurant for their weekly Caribbean barbecue including traditional Bajan music and entertainment, a favourite with guests.

We stayed in March 19 and were lucky to be given an upgrade to a seafront room which was decorated in typical Caribbean style and very clean and peaceful. Food in buffet for breakfast was plentiful and Heather’s omelettes are the best! Evening buffet good and again varied. We ate in the a la carte restaurant Esme? which was “ok” but food there a bit on the heavy side as traditional Bajan fare. Beach, like a few on the West Coast is sadly non existent so you have to go up or down Coast to get proper sand between your toes! Sun beds plentiful though and both beach team and bar staff really welcoming and attentive. Water sports such as Paddle Boarding, Hobie Cats or Water skiing none existent for all of the ten days we were there due to weather apparently but I’m not so sure, just seemed a bit odd? Overall I think the new ownership will ensure The Club’s already higher standards are enhanced even further in line with others in its Caribbean portfolio. We would return. Read less

I normally do not post reviews, but wanted to acknowledge how the hotel management truly cares about the guests. I have stayed at the resort numerous times. The food is very good, and the staff very friendly and attentive. Last month, the resort was closing for renovations and, on the last day, was down to 16 guests (I was one of them). The dining room had closed, and they took all of us out to dinner ... at one of the best restaurants on the island! Heather encouraged everyone to have whatever they wanted (both food and drink). It was truly a fun evening, and I was tremendously impressed how they went to such great lengths to make sure that we all had a great experience. Well done! And, thanks again. Read less

Club Barbados was not what I was expecting, but found to be a nice little gem in paradise. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent, thanks Chef Matthew! You can tell there was a lot of thought in the preparation and presentation of all the meals. The grounds and rooms were well manicured and clean. I had a room with a balcony and view of the bar and pool area – you would think the noise level would be a negative, but it wasn’t bad at all. I especially enjoyed Manager’s Cocktail party with the entertainment, the opportunity to purchase items from the local craftsmen/women and the fish fry with the other guest and locals. My only recommendation would be to consider cross-generational activities and music; such as afterhours lounge for baby bombers. Not everyone want to turn-in at 10:00p, especially on holiday! I understand that the resort will be closed for updates, I look forward to coming back and seeing all the updates (to include my suggestion)! Read less

Accommodations for handicap is poor, but all other amenities were fantastic! The service was outstanding, the entertainment was of good quality! The grounds and related maintenance were exceptional,with gorgeous flowers and well trimmed landscaping.
