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

My partner and I stayed here as part of a dual visit to Barbados, the first being at Sandals. The hotel is located on a fantastic stretch of beach with calm waters, which was the highlight for us. The room was beautiful although the bathroom could perhaps use a little update although perfectly serviceable. We found the hotel food to be nice when using room service or eating in the beachside restaurant, however, breakfast was a disappointment to us, so much the last two days we could not face it. If going out on the evening a taxi is required to the main restaurants along the west coast. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Unsure if we would return.

Colony Club Comments A charming hotel which preserves a certain intimacy notwithstanding the number of rooms The beach frontage is compact (you’re seated cheek by jowl) but the sand and sea are almost picture postcard perfect (although the beach can shelve quite steeply when the tide is going out). But it’s not without its faults Room We’d booked an “Oceanview Room” - but be aware the rooms don’t have a direct view of the sea (and those at the end if the block are in the corner of the courtyard) The room itself was pleasant with reasonable lighting, hanging space, hangers and iron and board. There’s a coffee machine and a kettle (but only 1 plug serving both resulting in having to scrabble behind the tv unit to switch them over). Only 1 large and 1 expresso sized cup for the room! And hardly any coffee pods or tea bags! Plugs generally were in short supply - we found only 1 spare for our rechargers etc Bathroom was well lit with twin sinks and a large mirror. Shower is positioned over bath - an overhead shower only and no hand held shower. Products are screwed to the wall! No cotton wool or cotton buds etc are supplied Hairdryer (thankfully not screwed to the wall!) was reasonably powerful but not very hot Sunloungers outside on the patio - but very little privacy Breakfast Adequate but not great. The staff seemed somewhat disorganised with tables not being reset quickly etc and on some days there was a small queue. Coffee served in a jug - just about ok! Lunch and Dinner - we didn’t eat in so can’t comment Sunset Bar - very slow service! We had an issue with the minibar when we were charged items we hadn’t used. Although we pointed it out immediately, they were still included on our final bill. As were included the drinks we were invited to have at the bar whilst our new room was being made up! Overall - we enjoyed our stay. The things that went well made it great - but it was somewhat marred by things that didn’t go so well and were more of a battle to resolve than they should have been But would we return? Yes - and we’ve already booked again for next year!

We are due to holiday here this year again but wanted to write this review now. We have been visiting this hotel for quite a few years and are devestated by the news mariott will be turning this into an all inclusive after there recent acquisition of the hotel chain. This is a fantastic hotel with caring staff and high quality food why change it!? We would not visit again after this year if the proposed changes take effect next year 😭 it's been our best place to holiday.... Anyone from mariott viewing this please reconsider!!
