The hotel had a lot of what I was looking for: not too big nor too small, a wonderful calm beach, kids friendly but nor specific for children, good food. I was surprised, positively, by the great amount of complimentary water activities as well as of other tours, etc. Rooms were great, they had a kids club, my kid really... More

We just returned from our vacation in mid July 2014. This was our first time in Barbados and we did a ton of research on the Island and hotels before landing on a few. Colony Club was our first stop. We are a family of four, with two kids 13 and 11. This resort is amazing (and I use the... More

We came here on our honeymoon for 8 days in July, 2014. The hotel was amazing, we had a great time. Some of our favorite aspects: -Watersports! They have a huge selection of included activities--water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, banana boating, along with hobby cats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and snorkel gear. We were never bored if we wanted... More

This was my 5th visit and we agreed the best yet. I have been with both family and mums and daughters trips and this hotel has been fantastic for both. Pros: - The beach/sunset deck/pool area is absolutely idyllic. Great that you can sit on the deck or the pool and actually be by the sea. (Note most or all... More

Our first time in Barbados after a couple of busy days in New York and, despite our late arrival, we were greeted with a cheerful receptionist who treated us to a complimentary rum punch. Our room was exactly what we wanted- Spacious with a balcony overlooking the intimate beach. Flower petals, champagne, fruit and treats were also available. The breakfast... More

The Colony Club ticks all the boxes. Nice staff, particularly Carol, Shernell, Trevor and Henderson, who all deserve a special mention. Breakfast and dinner at the hotel are very good, and the location lends itself to a a short walk to Holetown if you prefer to try something different. The guys at the water sport cabin do a great job... More

Second stay at Colony and sixth trip to Barbados so I feel I know the island quite well. The hotel has beautiful and peaceful gardens and a stunning beach location. Unpretentious and quietly elegant the hotel owes a lot to its attentive and long serving staff. They give all guests genuine and professional service. Good value compared to other high... More

I just got back from Colony Club 3 days ago. I have to say I was a little disappointed. I will share the many Pros and Cons with you so you can make a good decision. When we first arrived the entrance is nothing grand and the outdated koi pool is not a great welcome, I would suggest removing it.... More
