This is a solid 3.5-4 star hotel for the price their bracket. I'm not basing this on a 5 star luxury accommodation. The check-in was very simple and efficient. The lobby was presented very well, very clean and the staff were courteous, accommodating and personable. Please make note that there are really only three things that are very important to me: bed to sleep in, cleanliness and hot water. Overall the bed was comfortable but the sheets were a little 'harsh', not luxuriously soft but we slept well enough to allow us to enjoy our vacation and activities. The room and common areas of the hotel were kept very clean and there was always someone tidying up. The room had hot and good pressure water but we had two days without due to main 4" pipe break. They worked diligently to get this back in working order but afterwards, our toilet then whistled for 2 days due to air being in the lines. There are two restaurants located on the property and a snack menu for ordering in between big meals. One restaurant is the main one and the other is secondary and not open everyday and only for dinner on the days it is open. As for the food, it was very tasty and with a good variety of items to choose from. Sometimes the main dining room would have a buffet style dinner and others would be menu items; breakfast was always buffet but eggs could be made to order. In addition to their all-inclusive meals, they had purchase options for steaks and seafood based on season and availability. We did not participate in any activities so I cannot speak to that. There is limited beach due to erosion but they make the best of what they have and have made a 'beach' area for chairs and such. We had an oceanfront room which had a spectacular view. Feel free to ask questions and I will do my best to respond in a timely fashion. One last note, all the staff we had interactions with where fabulous! Read less

The Club is a great hotel. My partner and I stayed for a week, along with my parents ho were celebrating their 50th Wedding anniversary. The hotel and its grounds are excellent. The staff in the hotel are fantastic, and we'd like to name Desiree (who runs the floor, and was excellent and very attentive), Collis (who's an excellent drinks mixer and we saw in the beach bar and piano bar) and Heather (who cooks excellent eggs for breakfast). Our room was fantastic, and we had an excellent sea view in one of the lofts, it was kept spotless throughout our stay. The food, throughout the week, was fantastic, whether we ate in the beach bar or main restaurant (we weren't as sure about Enid's as the food is tasty, but as it's more Caribbean it may not be to everyone's taste). The staff are very friendly and helpful, the pools great, the gym well-stocked, the beachside and sunset views, and the evening entertainment is very good with in the main bar and piano bar! Overall we really enjoyed our stay! Read less

I believe that The club market the hotel as luxury, but the little things are missing that Do not make it luxury.

I believe that The club market the hotel as luxury, but the little things are missing that Do not make it luxury. Staying here for three nights and was a little surprised to here that you have to pay for WiFi in your room. It’s free in the public areas but you either can pay $10 for 24hr or $50 for a week of access In your room. It’s a little disappointing as this is the first luxury hotel to do this. Our room is lovely, it’s a third floor ocean view which is amazing, your so close that the sound of the waves sends you to sleep. Lying on your bed looking out you’ll be mistaken on being on a cruise ship. The view is amazing, right out to the west, perfect for sunsets. We had a bottle of champagne in ice on arrival, but another little let down, the in room fridge is NOT stocked. When I go to luxury hotels this is always a must, we’re in Barbados in hurricane season, the rain got torrential once or twice and there is no option to relax in the room as there is no in room drinks. Also another little thing which I always expect, umbrellas. It’s always nice to have a umbrella in the room, but there are none. Now these little things are a ploy to make more money out if guest, which I think to be a luxury hotel it should be there without issue. There is a onsite shop that sells utensils and bottled drinks, and umbrellas. The hotel gardens are lovely, and the pools are nice and gently heated for pleasant cool temp for the heat of the day. They have a bar waitress/waiter who will take your drink orders. The bar area is very contemporary with comfort and class. The main Reasturant could do with a food revision, all the GOOD food on Menu is chargeable (steak $100) Very limited buffet. They had a chicken rice mix on, it looked like a 1800’s childs workhouse broth. The lamb is good and so were the grilled burgers. To me these little things let the hotel down and them little things is the difference from luxury to a normal hotel. A luxury price tag on it. To me luxury is not having to ask for things and expecting the little things. The little things are missing. The location is brilliant. 10-15 min walk to Holetown. There is a duty free store opposite the hotel and a cash point too inside the international Carib bank. Staff are lovely and friendly. But not five star from me due to the little things Read less

The staff are wonderful, food, Heather the egg cook did the best eggs ever. I wanted to change rooms my choice it was done very quickly. You can easy walk into Holetown. The mall in Holetown is very expensive but worth a look.
