We spent two weeks at Colony club to celebrate both mine and my daughters birthday in August. The hotel itself is lovely, very elegant and understated. The staff are polite and friendly and always ready to help. I have to mention the water sport boys who work so hard, were continuously friendly and very patient. They really are a tremendous... More

We had 2 ground floor 'swim up' rooms by the small pools, in the garden and they were great and kept immaculately clean by the staff (despite the best endeavours of our teenage daughters to trash one every day!) Front desk staff were very helpful and booked numerous restaurants for us, bar staff were attentive, beach waiters seemed to differ... More

Stayed here 3 times now and just love it. Superb location, lovely staff who remember us, great facilities. We had a pool villa this time which was wonderful, like having your own private pool and with a lovely terrace area. Understated luxury at its best.

We chose this hotel mostly due to its excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The location is fantastic - directly off it's own private beach, with one of the pools a few steps from the sand. We didn't have any problems getting a sunbed on the beach at any time of the day. There were plenty of clean towels available... More

The Hotel remained beautifully elegant, with a wonderfully warm reception and great staff service across all aspects including the restaurant, beach staff, housekeeping and watersports.

When booking your honeymoon you may think of going somewhere new; not us. We knew that after our first visit in 2011, this was where we wanted to be. We weren't disappointed. The charm, facilities, staff and great customer service made our ten days the best ever. I can not recommend this hotel enough. Having travelled around the world I... More

We spent a week here in July/August of 2014 and stayed in a first floor ocean view room. The room was updated, luxurious and very well air conditioned! One step out of our room and we were onto the beach with a stunning view of the water and some spectacular sunsets. The staff was kind, welcoming and friendly and went... More

Spent 2 weeks here and enjoyed our stay in the garden suite. Staff were very friendly and the facilities were great. We went in May/June time and had perfect weather and hotels were not overly crowded. The hotel is very pretty with lovely gardens and swimming pools, plus the beach was very private being at a more secluded end. About... More
