Great hotel, welcomed back like long lost friends

This was our second trip to the Colony Club and it was lovely to be welcomed back with such enthusiasm, it felt like we had never been away. The hotel is just as lovely as last time, staff are friendly and the one bedroomed suites are really spacious and traditionally furnished. The hotel has a great atmosphere, and so many of the guests are repeat visitors, it was so nice to meet people again that were there the last time we stayed.It was great to see the watersports guys again, particularly Keon who is such a character, and always so patient (especially when trying to teach me to sail)There are however a few improvements that I think could be made:1. The quality of breakfast is poor and definitely needs looking at.2. The hotel needs to fog to try and cut down on the number of mosquitos that are ever present. Everyone we met had been badly bitten, and other hotels seem to manage this process very easily. I left with over 20 bites, not pleasant.3. There is a definite problem with the number of sunbeds. If you are not up super early it is impossible to get one by the pool, and heaven forbid if you want to go to the beach in the morning and then move to the pool. We saw one bed which had used towels on it but no one had been anywhere near it for hours. I asked if we could have it and we were told no as it must belong to someone. We eventually moved the towels ourselves, and no one did ever come back. There has to be a better system. We stayed at the Fairmont for our second week and they find beds for you, no one reserves them at all.To summarise, the hotel has a lovely family feel to it and I would definitely go back, but it is a 4 star and not a 5 star experience.

Beautiful beach and surroundings, fantastic stay at the Colony Club, Barbados

We (2 adults, 2 children, 12 and 15) had a 6 night stay at this wonderful, beautiful place. We had a garden suite which meant we stepped right out to the lagoon swimming pools and tropical gardens, with the beach and sparkly turquoise sea just through the trees. Loved the beach, swimming platform, water sports (we stuck with non motorised sailing, paddle boarding, snorkelling and kayaking but water skiing etc available), swim up / beach bar (happy/ cocktail hour was fun) and the beautiful, light, airy, calm interior areas of the hotel. Not forgetting the Colony club rum punch, the great breakfasts and last but not least would recommend the tour organised by the hotel to the St Nicholas Abbey (not an abbey but an old plantation house) and the wild East Coast. Great tour - thanks Andy!Lovely place, lovely holiday, would go back like a shot, but stay longer!

Very well managed, old-style traditional with lovely service from almost all of the staff

This really is a charming and well-managed property. It was our first ever visit but clearly almost all of the guests are returning regulars and that speaks volumes. We particularly liked the lunch service and the lady who always served us was an absolute treasure...full of joy, funny, very together and welcoming. I wish I could say the same about one of the pool/beach attendants who was unbelievably impolite/unhelpful but one horrible employee out of a hotel where everyone else is so lovely isn't that bad. The management know who he is!It really does retain some of the feel of the old style "gentleman's club" it once was and that is quite a plus, especially these days...all clearly appreciated by the understated clientele. Our favourite meal here was always lunch and so it should be, given most of the guests tend to venture out for dinner. We had a split holiday moving on later to Sandy Lane however for a relaxing stay in charming surroundings all overseen by Susan, a totally hands-on general manager, this is an elegant, old-style, very comfortable property where relaxing is easy.

A great local lunch with lots of atmosphere

I have never stayed here, but great place for lunch and if you are cute a swim by the swim up bar.There is always lots of atmosphere, amazing staff. Always friendly and very helpful. Great drinks at happy hour with snacks and little tasty ice cream desserts handed to those on deck chairs, and if you are lucky you may spot a . Treat yourself to a Stone Massage in the Waves Spa and a teen massage
