The Club Barbados Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My friends and I stayed at The Club for our first cropover. Our room was very nice. There was a weird smell in the bathroom which was addressed by housekeeping staff. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The front desk staff answered all our questions and concerns. The drinks were good even though they ran out of drink ingredients at times. Elvis and Sophia were wonderful bartenders. The restaurant staff were very attentive and sweet. Heather made the best omelets. She's the best. Patricia and the wait staff were excellent. I ate at Enids but it wasn't a great experience. The food was always on point. I would like the resort to offer more island foods. At times the food was more Americanized. Overall my stay was memorable and I would definitely visit again.
Overall I enjoyed my time at the hotel. The room was a nice size, though oddly the bathroom cabinet was fixed with plywood. While you can't walk directly into the water, the beach is only a couple of steps away. The food was typically all inclusive I.e. Not great but edible. What made this place shine was the staff, who were really friendly which is really important if you're traveling solo.
My wife and I returned after a two-year break, on our last visit the hotel had not long been taken over and was under refurbishment, we at that time found a few points not to our liking, two-year on, we had a fantastic holiday all the fantastic staff are still there withSome new. The only minus point is the beach, for the best part of the day there isn't one but the steps to the worm sea are great, (if you want a beach a two to three minute work will get you to a fab quiet one) I could name all the staff form the ladies who cleaned our room to the most helpful girls on reception but our stars has to be Heather who's smiling face at breakfast set you up for the day, at night who could resist the charm and smiling greeting of Cathy-Ann in Ends backed up with a cocktail supplied by our man Elvis.To say we had a good time, YES this in most part to the fantastic staff, well Eeite Island Resort's you have done it again keep the group growing so we can have some more fantastic holiday. To the club all your hard work over the past year has been a success thank you for a fantastic holiday.
This will be a somewhat lengthy review, so I apologize in advance. We spent a week at this resort at the end of July. June starts their rainy season and the first few days we had several isolated rain showers but we found that the rain only lasts about 20 minutes and it clears back up. This property is small compared to typical all-inclusive resorts, but because of that, we found that the pool, bars, and ocean were in close proximity to all the rooms. The exterior of the property, specifically where you enter your room, needs cleaning/paint. The wood stairs to your room are very worn and the entry ways outside the rooms need pressure washing. Because of this, my first impression of the resort was not good. However, the rest of the grounds of the hotel on the interior side, were kept very clean and manicured. Our 1 BR pool view suite was very clean and looked like it had been recently updated. I would say the room is similar in quality to a Marriott Courtyard in the US. The 1 BR has a spacious, separate living room area with a small empty fridge for storing your own snacks/drinks. Our room did not have a coffee maker, instead it had an electric tea pot. When I called the hotel operator about getting a coffee maker, they said they only had teapots in the rooms. Later in the week I asked the front desk and they had housekeeping provide a coffee maker. Also, there are two large professional expresso/coffee machines in the back of the downstairs restaurant that are self serve 24 hours a day. Very convenient.PROS: The service at this resort is excellent. We only found a couple of staff members with attitudes, but everyone else was super accommodating. Once you get to know the staff, they are a lot of fun. It is the people and service at this resort that sets them apart! We are experienced snorkelers, and spoke to Dana in the Watersports hut. He was very helpful and informative. Dana told us about the reef and the 2 wrecks that are located to the right of the resort (as you are facing the water). We had to walk down a particular path and pass another resort to get to a good entry at low tide, which Dana explained how to do. We swam from the shore and found very good coral reefs and two wrecks to explore. The water visibility was spectacular with very little current. Boats come out to this spot by 10:30am, so you really need to wake up early to get the place to yourself. The boats are gone by 2:30pm, so you could go back out in the afternoon to avoid the boat chaos. The food at this resort was very good. I was worried that they only had 1 or 2 restaurants to choose from and it might not offer the variety needed, but they did an excellent job of providing you plenty of choices and good quality food. We love fresh seafood and in one week, we had mahi, tuna, swordfish, and marlin. All very good. I even tried flying fish one day, but it had too little meat on it. Their spa services were excellent as well. They run various specials during the week. I had an aromatherapy massage by Alicia and she did an excellent job. The view of the ocean and water at this resort is just spectacular! You can sit and watch the sunset every evening while you sip on your cocktail. It is really something special.Across the street from the resort is a very large duty-free shop that has snacks, liquor, gifts, makeup, perfume, clothes, purses, shoes, and even nice clothes for men. There prices were in line with US prices. I was really impressed with the variety of items they had. One of the most convenient things we did was ride the Yellow "Reggae Bus". It is $1 US dollar to go anywhere this bus runs and they come by the front of the resort about every five minutes. You can just stick your arm out and they will pull over and pick you up pretty much anywhere. If you want to ride to Holetown, Bridgetown, or to Folkstone Marine Park for example, it is really convenient. Plus, you can stand on the bus if you are wet from swimming, which is great. Check it out.CONS: Because the ocean water is so close to the seawall, there really isn't a beach (i.e. a lot of beach sand) to speak of at this resort. There are steps down to the shoreline where you will find a little sand in order to get into the water, but for most of the day, the water is only about knee deep. The resort set up some rocks (like a jetty) to slow down the waves and provide a protected swim area there, but the consequence is shallow water. They do set up beach lounge chairs up above the ocean near the restaurant and bar and have laid some white sand, so you can still lay out and get the ocean view.The Sunset restaurant is not air-conditioned. We are from Florida and we thought the humidity and temperature was nice compared to Florida this time of year, but I noticed other guests perspiring at lunch time. The hotel does pass out lavender scented ice cold wash cloths at lunch to cool you off, which once again, shows their attention to detail/service.Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Club. We will definitely stay at this resort again.
This was my first trip to Barbados, and it was one of the best experiences I have had on vacation. The Club, Barbados Resort, and Spa is an adult all-inclusive hotel with wonderful staff, good food, great excursions and fun entertainment. You will love the DJ and the Piano Bar...can you say Karaoke? The scenery of this property is gorgeous. I got a good workout daily walking the stairs because there is not an elevator, but that's okay because it was only four flights. So with all the good food I endured, I needed a workout. Me and one of the bartenders became great friends after he made on the first try, an excellent, Lemon Drop Martini. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. It was such an amazing trip and a wonderful stay at The Club, Barbados Resort, and Spa!
