Visited the Colony Club last year with my husband to watch cricket. This year I took the "kids" (aged 21, 19 and 14). We had deluxe poolside rooms with private access to the lagoon pool - lovely for the extra outside space. A bottle of champagne awaited us as returning guests, and the staff were as helpful as ever.

We looked up this hotel on the internet. The pictures showed a luxurious nice hotel and the price indicated it should be a good hotel. It was a bit of a disappointment though. It felt quite run down, both the outside and some things on the inside. We stayed in a poolside room, so called Swinm up room that has... More

We have been to the Colony Club on more than one occasion and each time we think why did we rebook again! It has to be because of the location and size of the beach (not covered by trees). The other good bits are the male waiter service by the beach/pool and the water sport team. Very helpful, polite and... More

Was a little worried after reading some bad reviews but we stayed for a week in February 2010 and had a lovely holiday and would definitely go back. The room we were given had recently been refurbished and was spacious with a nice large terrace (not that we used it). The pool area was lovely & clean and the grounds... More

If this is your first time at this hotel... beware... the bad reviews are 100% accurate.. I am writing this review having returned from a 10day stay and having spent $10k USD.. I paid up for a decent room and got allocated in some 2 Star hole.. It didn't help that ALL the staff knew that we had been side... More

If you are at all concerned about booking this hotel, then don't be. The hotel is on the nicest stretch of beach in Barbados and is one of the more charming hotels on the island. My partner and I stayed for one week in a luxury ocean view room. The slight extra cost was worth it. The room was exceptionally... More

2nd visit in six months which probably tells you all you need to know. Not necessarily the smartest and the public areas could do with a few dollars spending on them, but we were welcomed back like old friends and enjoyed every minute. Perfect location to enjoy the best that the West Coast has to offer. Great staff, nice pool... More

This was our first stay at Colony Club after being recommended. We had a standard room which was nice and spacious enough. My only conplaint was the shower screen over the bath was a bit tired looking and for a 4* hotel should be replaced. There was not constant hot water and filling up one bath, the water soon went...

I had to respond to some of the reviews of this hotel/resort. My wife and I spent a week here in December and truly enjoyed the hotel. We found the staff to be professional and quite helpful. Our garden view room was typical of most Caribbean hotels of similar ratings. We had breakfast included in our room rate and it... More
