I had a really fantastic holiday with my family at the colony club apart from 2 days where my 14 year old son was in incredible pain. This was because he swam and touched a rope which was rife with sea lice - yet there was no sign whatsoever! So please, please keep away from the rope in the sea with the yellow buoys on it.Apart from this our holiday was excellent, we stayed in a junior suite which was great but beware that there is no lift. Please make use of the awesome watersports but you must queue at 8:00 each morning to book activities, and must be up earlier to reserve sun beds by the beach and pool. All staff were absolutely brilliant but a special thanks to Karene, Shecwin, Matthew and Clare. Would definitely return.
l have been to the colony club a few times over the last 15 yrs,the last time l was there they had started to up grade some of the rooms bringing them up to date ,so on my return this time l was expecting a change but it appears they spent the money on buying a new hotel (wave or something) the standard of accommodation is good by a lot of standards just bathrooms are tired (every thing is clean just old) .We did 12 nights full board and 5 nights 1/2 board hoping that we could mix the 5 nights in the17 for eating out but the management were ridged it was 12 full at the start or 12 full at the end which was a little disappointing .The food in the past has been as good in the hotel as any of the restaurants on the island ,but this year we weren't as impressed.l also had a small issue with the water skiing which had to be sorted out through the hotel management this had to be taken up with three levels of management before it was sorted .the water sports are very good and the staff are excellent and friendly in both the water sports and the hotel (just management staff could have been a little more flexible)
This was our third stay in 6 years and they have made small but noticeable improvements. We just love this place. The junior garden suites are excellent, the garden location just perfect. We enjoyed the new organic garden tour and cookery demo. We liked the restaurant and new bar, and the food remains very good indeed and very varied. The wine list seemed better too. Excellent beach and water sports. Treat yourself! We will be back.
we had an amazing stay at the Colony last week. the layout of the hotel is ideal for those who want poolside or beach seating all day. the staff are always ready to help you with any need you have. included watersports make it easy to do an activity without the worry of finance. happy hour is something to look forward to as there are so many choices.take advantage of some of the daily activites the hotel offers, we did.we loved our room thanks to Stephanie who will look forward to more American visitors after reading this review.(ask for her and let her know) This is the resort to stay at on the prime west coast so book it now, you will be happy you did.
