So where do I start. What a poor experience. I booked an ocean view room for 3 nights as a Marriott Bonvoy member. Asked for a high floor sea view and paid 1072 USD per night for what appeared like a superb room from the pictures. Do I regret it as we got the dreaded room no 102. Tiny room with no sea view unless u stood up and a 1960s bathroom that literally two people could not fit into at the same time. Dated very expensive and very poor and when I told reception they agreed and said they would pass on the message. Marriott up your game in this resort or at least in the block that has these rooms. The shower is in the bath which didn’t bother us but when it turned on the floor was soaked. The wardrobes were also from the 60s and I am not joking ! Very very poor room. What really made me annoyed was the courtesy room we changed in to go to the airport was far superior no doubt for a lower price. If I had only known. The one positive was the bed was comfortable but that’s about it. Bathroom small and pokey and from 1960 as is the wardrobe. Marriott u need to upgrade the rooms if you want people to charge these prices. Beach area very nice and easy to get a bed. Breakfast also good but could have fresh juices / smoothies instead of concentrated. So my recommendation is to look at the room before you accept it and if not happy go to Coral Reef next door. Has the potential to be excellent just isn’t at the moment. Motorised sports are not all free as claimed and there is no airport shuttle. We asked twice as it did there is on the Marriott site. I would love a refund of some type after such a terrible experience. The good news is the beach and beds and water is superb.

Hotel's Favorite
2020 has been a difficult year but thank you for making us feel safe and happy and for the making the holiday as wonderful as the previous 3 years . The staff at this hotel are so special , my daughter celebrated her birthday on holiday and they arrived with a beautiful chocolate cake . Lunch is always perfect just a few steps from the beach ! Breakfast was slightly different as not the normal buffet but the choice & quality was excellent .Everything has been spruced up whilst closed on their Covid break , all spotlessly clean and new loungers and cushions around the pool . We love the ocean view room and listening to the waves at night ! Sitting watching the sunset in the evening is magical . Looking forward to coming back in 2021

Fantastic trip to Colony club this last week. The location of the hotel is amongst the best on the island - mid way up the beautiful west coast and so readily accessible to the best restaurants that run up this side of the Barbados. The beach itself is utterly stunning and arguably sits on the better part of the beach to higher end hotels like Sandpiper. The beach itself was the highlight of this trip - beautiful sand and turquoise water which we never tired of. One thing worth highlighting is that Colony Club offer each room 30 minutes of free motorised water sports each day (water skiing, wake boarding, banana boats etc). This is something I have not encountered before and learning to water ski (at no charge) was very special. Make sure you try the swimming with turtles excision which was amazing. We look forward to going back soon!

We held our wedding on the sandy beach adjacent to The Colony Club just before Xmas. Karene was excellent in organising the whole wedding experience for us with our package. We did not have to worry about a thing. We could not have asked for more and it exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic day. Stayed over Xmas for two weeks and it was all very well thought out, nice and relaxed atmosphere. Good activity schedule appropriate for the time of year. All the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful towards my family and happy to have a talk and make sure we were enjoying our time there. Xmas gifts in the room and Santa visted the children staying at the hotel. The room was spotlessly cleaned everyday, as were all the public areas. Plenty of choice for breakfast of a good quality. If you wanted lunch on the beach, then the beach ambassadors would bring it over to you with a smile. Plenty of chairs on the lovely beach or pool areas, never had a problem finding somewhere to sit and always a fresh towel available. Lots of water sports activities available at the hotel included within the holiday price. Hobbie cat, paddle boarding, kayaking, water skiing etc. The guys in the water sports centre were brilliant. Very helpful and friendly. You could see the genuine interest and patience they had in helping my daughter paddle board and water ski for the first time. Second time we have stayed as a family at the Colony Club, already looking forward to a third.

A family holiday over New Year, something we’d looked forward to but we leave with a sour taste in the mouth. The happy friendly beach staff and most of the restaurant staff were undermined by a number of seemingly disinterested staff who seemed like they were working as a favour to us and who treated basic requests like we were making their lives more difficult. We were not alone on being on the receiving end of this. The beach - Unless you were up early you would struggle to get beds on the beach for a family of 4. The beach itself was, by mid morning, littered with blown paper, used cups, glasses and bottles. It was cleaned but irregularly. Service at dinner and lunch was often slow. At one dinner we sat for an hour before anyone took an order. At another we went for quick smoothies. These arrived 45 minutes later. Room service - with no telephone directory we walked to reception to order room service to be told there was a number to dial. Hmmm. A simple request for some ice cream and a drink again took over 40 minutes to arrive. As I say many staff and people we met were lovely but do I need to fly 8 hours, pay a significant premium for average food and service that made my family feel uncomfortable? I go on holiday to get away from that! Would I return? Probably not. 😢
