Just returned from another bit of r & r at the Club, where the staff make this such a highly regarded resort from the majority of returners.Many of the team treat you like long lost family, and their warmth and desire to do everything they can to ensure you have a good time is genuine and heartfelt.This was our second visit under Elite Resorts ownership, and can see they are investing in improving some of the facilities, including the rooms. You have to be aware they can only do so much given the age of the basic property, but it is in keeping with traditional Barbados, not some clone of an international resort where you could be anywhere.The resort has relaxed the long trousers rule in the main sunset restaurant, but you still have to wear long trousers at Enid's, their other restaurant, which I think works well. You have to book you meal times and locations in the morning at breakfast, and Saturday is a beach barbecue day, when Enid's is closed. All of the food is of a high standard, especially good is Heather, the Grill Chef, who cooks perfect eggs for breakfast and fish at lunch.We hope to return, as will many!
We have just returned from 10 days spent at The Club, Barbados. As always I will explain my expectations to set the scene. This was a special holiday to celebrate my wife's birthday so expectations were high. We were led to believe that this was a small resort, catering to adults only providing high quality food, accommodation and customer service and they delivered this in abundance. From the moment we arrived the welcome and efforts of the staff were exceptional, within the first few days the staff knew our names and seemed genuinely focused on making sure everything was perfect for us. Although there was a cross section of age groups the majority seemed to be between 45 and 55 with the entertainment and activities catering to all. So from early morning strolls to water skiing and everything in between there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained. Evening entertainment was a variety of good quality cabaret acts which could be enjoyed equally whilst sat enjoying a nice relaxing cocktail or having a dance. At 11pm the main entertainment finishes and if you wanted more it is on to the piano bar. The piano bar was fantastic entertainment especially the piano karaoke which entertained young and old alike. Who doesn't want a chance to sing alongside such a talented pianist, many of the guests did say they wished the piano karaoke was available every night, maybe one for the club to consider. The food and drinks... The food was wonderful, the Sunset restaurant is used for breakfast, lunch and evening meals with plenty of choices available (at least for our 10 day stay), and Enids provides classic Caribbean dishes in a more personal setting. This was where we celebrated my wife's birthday, if you make them aware of your special occasion they will provide a pleasant surprise for your evening... Drinks... cocktails galore and quality spirits. Unlike some all inclusive venues the spirits available were good quality, Stolichnaya vodka, Gordons Gin and Jim Beam bourbon to mention a few and enough varieties of rum to keep everyone happy. I was aware that the beach had been mentioned before we went. The beach itself is small and gets covered at high tide, but there are large sandy beaches on either side of the resort if that is your desire. That said the resort has a sanded area that sits above the beach which has loungers, tables and chairs for the sun worshipers and the sea in front of the beach is protected by a small reef and I recommend you grab a snorkel from one of the water sports team and check out the fish, the full cast of Finding Nemo within 25 metres from the shore. If you ever fancied swimming with Turtles speak to Steve who can be found by the beach daily, ever helpful and ever smiling. I could go on and on as this resort really impressed me and the staff made a special holiday even better than I could have hoped for. If you want a nice, relaxing holiday in paradise with people who really seem to want to ensure you have a great time then you would be hard pushed to beat this. Thank you to all the staff at the club, I guess we'll be seeing you again next year!
I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights at the end September. This hotel has lovely first impressions with very helpful reception staff. Rum punch on arrival always goes down nicely and our room was fantastic. Our room was a deluxe double room with pool view and balcony. We could tell it had been recently renovated due to the modern, clean décor too. The hotel is sweet in that there are 2 pools running through the middle of the hotel, with rooms either side. I think the hotel needs one more pool as there is a grass area space unused near reception and some days the sun beds can seem close together. The pools were exceptionally clean. Enids Resturant I found in little need of atompshere. Some music playing would have been great and the food was nice but a little on the bland side. The main buffet restaurant though was really good and the choice of food was brilliant. Lots of varierty, delicious fish every day, meat, salads, wraps for lunch etc. BBQ night was amazing on the beach and the steak on the Barbie was superb. Only problem was how long it takes to order a drink. One day I waited over 30 minutes for a cocktail with lunch, to then be told they had no passion fruit juice. Very annoying when hot from sunbathing. When the drinks do arrive though they are delicious. Water sports was great, gym was good. Quite old equipment but all worked fine and there was a tv on the wall and air conditioning. This hotel is next to the Sandy Lane hotel which I didn't realise before I went, so that was a nice surprise too - swim in the same water for a fraction of the cost! Hotel staff were friendly but not as friendly as other Caribbean islands I have been too. Adults only was wonderful.I would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Barbados looking for a relaxing retreat to read books, drink, eat and unwind.
We arrived a day late following a diverted flight due to Hurricane Mathew to be greeted like old friends. We found the layout of the resort very "user-friendly" and the staff are fantastic....so helpful. The kitchen produces meals which are substantial and varied and the dinners really good.
Went solo not knowing how it was going to be as it was my first time. The staff at the Club Barbados made you feel welcome and not at all alone, they were fantastic, the hotel is lovely, very clean and has everything that one needs. Will go back again very soon. Very welcoming and very professional a wonderful place to visit, very friendly.
