The Club Barbados. Visited 21 March – 4 April 2024 Package – All Inclusive Room – 135 – Garden View Ground Floor. On arrival we were shown to our initial room which was very small and quite dingy. Added to this we both smoke and smoking on balconies is not allowed. We asked for a ground floor room with garden view so we could smoke on the veranda. This was actioned and sorted in 2 minutes of asking and we were very grateful. Day 1 – Hotel orientation delivered by Adam from the activities team – Funny, witty and very well delivered with all important points covered off. Set us in a good mood for the rest of our stay. Room – Bathroom was tired and dated but clean and functional. Room had a large TV with the apps such as Netflix installed and just awaiting you to login if you wanted to catch up on something. Large uber comfy bed and lovely pillows was perfect for chilling after a day on a sun longer. Food – Large Sunset restaurant – Buffet style with 2 x Al A Carte evenings per week during our stay. Always something to please everybody. I really enjoyed the cooked to order area. Omelettes for breakfast, burgers and chicken at lunch and fish or meat in the evenings. The hot dishes didn’t disappoint, although was expecting a little more Caribbean spice. Strongest point was the staff in the restaurant and the banter and brilliant. Dined in Enid’s once, and it was nice but we preferred the sunset restaurant. Activities – Aqua Fit 1100 every day was always a fun activity to get involved in and the activities team did a great job in getting everyone involved. Staff – The staff here were the reason I would return. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left they were 100% attentive. From front desk calling us a taxi to go off exploring to explaining the best bar for a sunset drink in Holetown. The bar staff making drinks just how we liked them. The restaurant team were brilliant from the moment we were shown to our table to the last lunch before we departed. The chef – Vicky the burger and grill queen thank you for adding 4 inches to my waistline. Points to improve on – Place USB sockets in the rooms as most hotels have them these days. Shame there was no drinks service around the pool area. Look at improving the décor in the bathrooms. Read less

Stayed from 10th April for 9 days with friends Fantastic - those poor reviews out there absolute nonsense - don’t be out off by them Positives- great location and an easy walk to Sandy Lane beach which is stunning Food- considering only 2 restaurants the choice was not repetitive - well presented and tasted good. Buffet breakfast and lunch was varied - the girls on the egg station thank you - always 🙂 staff in the restaurant always happy to help too many names to remember Donna was a queen and the lady that got us the coconut water , thank you. The bar staff just ask them they will make it a great Harvey wallbanger shaken to taste. The pool guys keeping the pool clean - Jermaine who serves the drinks poolside what a great guy always ready for your order and a good laugh thank you from Paul and Nigel (Jessie) 😂 Caroline the GM always around first thing and in the day for a chat The room number 264 lovely and clean lots of room a little noisy at times when clearing up pool and bar area Entertainment - varied and lovely singers finishes by 11 so if you want late night they have the piano bar. Cons - sunbeds why do people feel the need to keep their beds all day and they are not there. Yes hotel staff could perhaps stop this first thing but I feel it is down to selfish people. If you are going off to the beach or a trip for a few hours - take your towels off the beds . We will be back hopefully one day we had a great stay.

I stayed at the hotel from April 11 through April 15 .... Let's start at the RESORT FEE!!! That apparently is not included when you book your room.

I stayed at the hotel from April 11 through April 15 .... Let's start at the RESORT FEE!!! That apparently is not included when you book your room. They call it incidentals, and have you sign for when you check in, but you are not made aware of the additional $100 until check out! There were a certain members of the staff that were extremely nice and helpful but the great majority were not. They Do not give the same service to all the guests. It was like a golden corral, Motel 6, shut down at 10 o'clock type of place. I don't understand why it's called a resort. It is nothing like a resort. Accommodations at a place can make a break my trip and this really broke my trip. I was very happy for the group that I traveled with because They made my experience in Barbados wonderful. Read less

Apr 17, 2024 Curious02698193599

I would not recommend. Some of the staff are friendly and some not so much. The food choices are poor. My room barely cool as the Air Conditioners were old and hardly blew cold air. No hot water in the bathroom so cold showers every day. Would NOT recommend.

Club Barbados Resort and Spa was AMAZING! We just got back. We own in Grand Cayman so I was concerned my expectations would be too high but this place was incredible. The water is literally steps away from the restaurant and bar and oceanside rooms. Best sunsets I have ever seen! The food was delicious - lots of variety! And the drinks were delicious and strong. The staff were all so friendly and they would make any accommodation you needed. They all got along so well and happy to be working. Very clean resort. It is on small side so everything is walking distance. Entertainment every nite. I like to be in bed by 10 pm after a long day of ocean but for the niteowls they had a piano bar until 2 am. This was my first adults only vacay and while I love children it was wonderful not hearing screaming kids all week. The GM of the resort walks around all day to make sure guests are happy. She really does a great job. We will DEFINITELY go back ! Read less
