The Club Barbados Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
What we wanted was to find a beautiful, relaxing holiday / wedding and honeymoon all combined into one, The Club spa and resort in Barbados did not disappoint. It meet and exceeded our expectations.The resort is far better than some make out, the food is of high quantity and the menu changes daily, The all-inclusive drinks is also very good, local beer (Banks) and obviously local rum (Black label is very nice). The apartments and facilities, we were pleased with our superior garden view room, although there is room for improvement here. I felt the bathroom could do with a makeover, nevertheless for the time that you spend in your room, it's well good. The nightly entertainment could be better I guess, it depends on what you go on holiday for. After a long hard day, lounging, sun bathing, drinking, swimming, I personally didn't feel the need for a long, late nights entertainment. There was plenty of time to relax after dinner with drinks, talk and laugh with new found friends. The bars close at 23:00 except the piano bar (02:00), which again I feel it just about right. Going to bed just after 23:00 back on the beach by 06:30 .. Awesome.As for the staff (bar / restaurant / porters etc.) .. Well, they make the holiday, they are all absolutely brilliant and deserve a massive round of applause for their hard work. There are too many individuals to mention, but to name a few and say hello to if you decide to stay here, are, Adrian, Vinny, Elvis, Lesley-Ann, Heather and Paulette.If you are planning a wedding here .. Paulette makes it happen, she was great and looked after us.We absolutely enjoyed ourselves, a very memorable holiday come wedding come honeymoon.
Spent 7 nights in this hotel....The Good bits:* Excellent choice of food that was outstanding. You won't go hungry.* Good range of drinks / cocktails etc and they have a tea/coffee point open throughout the day. Really good cocktails, try the 'Monkey Business' one with dark rum. * Lovely pool area with good amenities* Well maintained grounds, that are really pretty* Adult only, so nice and peaceful* Good beach area* Lots of activities all included (all inclusive package)* Good tours desk available* Exceptionally friendly and helpful staffThe not so good bits:* Total lack of sunbeds as people were getting up and putting towels on sunbeds at 5am - seriously they were! They were the same people doing it and if you dare try and sleep in, you have no chance. They were all gone by 7.30am (when breakfast started). The hotel policy of removing towels that weren't being used wasn't enforced at all. So frustrating. I have been in other hotels where they have a pool attendant issuing towels, so they can monitor and remove the ones that aren't being used and you don't get this problem. This hotel doesn't have that and it really impacts on the pool area.* Allowing smoking around the pools and the total disregard for people who don't smoke. There should be an area for this and it only be allowed there, so it's contained.* My room was on the 4th floor and there are no lifts. It seemed to be a reject room because the air conditioning leaked onto the floor, so I had to keep moving the bin to catch the drips etc. The electricity kept shorting, so could't use the extension lead. The TV kept going off because of the dodgy electrics. Also, had a faulty fire alarm that went off really early in the morning.* The towels in the room (both bathroom and pool towels) weren't changed all week. I kept on having to use small towels to mop up the air conditioning leak and these were taken away and not replaced, even through it was obvious why they were on the floor catching the leak!* You have to book your dinner reservation at breakfast time and woe betide you if you have the audacity to sleep in as you end up being left with the really late booking(8.45pm), so I found myself getting up early to ensure you get a decent dinner time. Started to get really annoying as the week went on.Overall, a nice enough all inclusive adult only hotel with lovely pool (when you get near it), but due to the comments about what I didn't like, I wouldn't return and would rather try somewhere else on the island.
Just returned from The Club, as always staff fantastic, rooms always good, lots of choice with food.Not sure about entertainment as I went away to rest & missed it due to being flaked out by 9 !Could of been 5 stars but due to the lack of beach towels, temperamental wifi & gold dust english breakfast tea bags it's has to me a 4.
This is adult only resort. The staffs were wonderful, polite and friendly.The reosrt has paid internet in the room but free wifi at the bar and reception.They offer airport transport at a fee, also do scenery view. Good food at all time for all inclusive including unlimited drinks.
Stayed here from September 3rd for 11 nights.Garden suite room was a good size and had excellent air conditioning, that is definitely required.Breakfast opened at 730 and was good.Plenty of fruit,plus the usual Fry up foods.Heather the chef was so bubbly each morning and made great French toast and omelettes. Lunch like breakfast was buffet service and usually had pasta,chicken,beef,chips etc and Heather cooked hot dogs,burgers and fish in front of you.Excellent salads and desserts also.Dinner was a LA carte each night except Saturdays (barbecue night) and Mondays when Enid's Restaurant was closed.Again a good choice of food and the fish on offer was amazing.Tried tuna,marlin,kingfish,flying fish and others on our stay and was never disappointed.Waiter service in both restaurant s was excellent and your wine and water glasses were always topped up.I liked both restaurants but preferred Enid's as it had air con.Was fairly quiet in our first week but occupancy was practically full second week and some people were booking restaurants days in advance,which was a little unfair as we were first for breakfast on our last day but unable to book Enids as it was fully booked.Think it would be better to have bookings on a daily,first come,first served basis than the present procedure.Also as has been mentioned sun loungers were all taken by 7am in our second week.I went to the fabulous gym each morning around 6 am and thanks to Troy and the security staff for opening up so early for me.Very much appreciated guys.Drinks were excellent and great Cocktails and premium drinks on offer,all part of all inclusive like Gordon's,Smirnoff,Jim Beam,Canadian Club,Cointreau.Entertainment was fairly good with lots of daytime activities and live music most nights.Water sports were excellent and tried scuba diving,sea kayaking and speedboat trips again all free.Went on a few trips from the hotel like Oistons Fish Fry,Scenic Barbados Tour,Harrison's Cave and garden tour and was most impressed by Amir who was very informative.Travelled into Bridgetown on the reggae bus too which was great fun and only cost 4 bajan dollars for a return journey. Beach is fairly small and is only a small bit of sand but safe to swim.Millionaires paradise Sandy Lane is only a short walk away and has a cracking beach.All in all a fantastic holiday with great staff.Particular mention to Kerrie Anne who brightened my day,also Mia,Sylvester,Elvis,Vasdelka,Ingrid and Anthony.Only gripe was booking restaurant on last day but hotel was busy due to transfers from Antigua etc and holidaymakers travelling back to USA being delayed for days due to Hurricane Irma.
