A lovely stay despite the weather

We had a lovely time at the hotel despite arriving during a hurricane. Despite a blackout on our first morning the staff managed to serve a perfect breakfast for everyone and remained cheerful and friendly. The GM was very attentive and the entire staff was throughout friendly and kind despite the weather and situation.The ground were wonderful, our room was large and nice. Some of the pool and pool bar staff went above and beyond their duty. Thank you very much!My only issue was the spotty internet, but then I shouldn't travel and try to do some work when I am in such a lovely place!

Absolutely Brilliant!!

My wife and I stayed at the Colony Club for our honeymoon at the end of October for ten days. What an unbelievable time we had. Everything was delivered at such a high standard. The service is second to none. The food, cocktails and staff were phenomenal! Nothing is too much trouble. The location is brilliant too. You can swim and lounge by one of their four tropical swimming pools or lay on a lounger right on the ocean with staff serving you the whole time. They also have water sports that you can book on a daily basis from water-skiing, tubing, padling all included in the price. Jet skiing was the only one you had to pay for which was roughly £30 for a half hour. The sun sets are divine and there are so many fabulous restaurants to choose from if you feel like going for a wander which I highly recommend as the island is beautiful. The front desk will arrange anything from tours, to taxis to restaurant bookings. I honestly cannot praise this hotel enough. My wife and I have never been so sad to leave a place it was just that good. Take advantage of the numerous activities the hotel provides for you such as fishing trips , tour of the East coast among many others. You will not be disappointed.

Very disappointing

Great location, stunning sea views, everything should be perfect. But...... 5 * prices and 2* service. We went for drinks in the evening - had to wait ages to be served, without any explanation, reordering was just as bad. Then when it came to pay I had follow the waitress to reception and wait for the lady at the desk to finish what she was busy doing then finally to make payment. It should have been fun and relaxing, it wasn't.

Delightful spot for a break

The hotel's grounds are pretty, with the pool running through the center of the property. The vibe is very relaxed, with lots of tropical drinks coming from the bar all day long and with hotel "ambassadors" serving little treats like frozen grapes or a bit of ice-cream at the beach. The staff is well-trained, pleasant and experienced, obviously very happy to be working there. There's a great breakfast buffet. We were happy to meet the hotel manager at the weekly cocktail party...she couldn't have been nicer. The clientele is mostly British. The atmosphere was conducive to chatting with other guests and meeting people easily if you wanted to. We were happy to be able to get a dehumidifier in the room as it was very humid. (The air conditioning units cool the air but don't take out the humidity.) We enjoy eating out in Barbados. Lots of great restaurants not far away if you want to go out. Only small complaint: I would have liked an umbrella over my beach lounge next to the sea. There were some but not along the first row of lounges, which got hot in the afternoon. Lovely spot!

Nothing short of stunning

First time in Barbados and we stayed at the Colony Club hotel. I cant thank the hotel staff enough for making this our best holiday ever! Ever! Reading some negative reviews had left me apprehensive but from the moment we walked into the hotel, I knew it would be a great holiday. The hotel itself is wonderful, with its colonial design which adds so much to its character. The grounds of the hotel have been designed to fit within the island's landscape and whether its the birds chirping at night or the toads croaking at dawn, you are ensconced in your own little part of paradise. The food was great (pumpkin fritters and banana bread at breakfast a firm favourite)! The outings organized by the hotel spot on and the water sports are endless - yes it took me 2 days to learn how to paddle board but I did do it! Even the fact the rains were very one evening and our room got flooded does not take away anything from our wonderful stay - the staff response was swift and if anything, it is their swift response to rectifying this that reinforced our view of this place. The only thing that would have made my stay even more perfect was if the library had a few books in it about the history of Barbados - but when I did mention this to my son, he gave me a look of disdain saying that "Dad, people don't come on holiday to read". We will be back for certain next year but until then, many thanks to the wonderful staff at the Colony Club. If you are teetering on the edge of booking a holiday there, my impartial advice is " go for it - you wont be disappointed".
