At the end of the day a hotel is just bricks. It’s the sole of the palace and this place has it in bucket loads in its people ! Yes the location is stunning but it’s people are the true essence of this destination! Polite and welcoming given a true Barbados welcome.. However if you are after a true 5 star service The Colony has its failings. It lacks the attention to detail you would expect. The rooms are getting a little old looking and need some love. The grounds are lovely and very well kept. Service is a little hit or miss - maybe down to lack of staff. The main pool was closed while I was here so made most guest move to the beach front that clear can not cope when busy. Most guests would reserve sun beds in the morning and not return to later in the day which was very frustrating for some guests. This needs to be managed by the hotel. During the stay we did have water outage due to ongoing works and the ground works was sometime bothersome. It’s low season so I guess these worlds were all taking place. Breakfast staff are great ! The outdoor furniture needs updating. I did not eat here for dinner as it lacked atmosphere so went to some amazing local restaurants - Tides - The Cliff - Lone Star ! All amazing. I was given an upgrade to an ocean view room 141 that had no ocean view. I asked to be moved back to the original swim room which was much better. Would definitely recommend this type of room

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

Out of few Marriott properties, we finally chose Colony club. It turned out it was such a good choice. It's a boutique hotel with traditional colony decor. Due to September is the low season, it was very quiet. From the room to the pool area and the beach, everything is just perfect, and what exactly you expect for a Caribbean holiday. The food is also very good. The service is a 5 star!

Just back from another fantastic holiday staying at the Colony Club with my husband and two children (age 12 & 7) We returned to the Colony Club for our fourth time and were so glad we did!! we all had an amazing time and we didn't want to leave! We have visited other hotels nearby which confirms what an amazing hotel the Colony Club is and with the beautiful gardens and pools the other hotels settings are no comparison. We opted for B&B as we wanted to explore the nearby restaurants and we are really glad we did we went to some amazing places including, Lone Star, Tides, QP Bistro and Just Grillin' to name a few. The food at the hotel was great, good quality and lots of choice, the kids menu has a good varity of food which even catered for my fussy 7 year old. We stayed in the One bed Suite which suited our needs and the hotel were kind enough to honour our request and gave us the room we've always stayed in As always the room were clean and had everything we needed including a coffee machine ! the beds are amazing and are so comfortable. The room is attended to twice a day which is lovely having freshly made beds, water and towels. The watersports at the hotel are amazing and are all included which is chargeable at other hotels. There is a great range of things to do and the kids loved going on the speed boat! The Water sport team are amazing and help you book in what you want to do and we were in very safe hands. We did the 'Cool Runnings' catamaran day trip which we have done many times, we had the best day swimming with turtles and seeing the wonderful coral and fish when snorkelling over a ship wreak as always the drinks were flowing and the music was going the food on this trip is amazing lots of choice and one of the best meals we had on our holiday. The crew are great fun and look after you well they get you up dancing and having fun ! this is one of our favourite trips. We ran out of time to go back to Hunte's gardens but this is also another amazing place to visit and a must do if you get chance. Karene, the Guest Services Manager is very visual and introduced herself to us on our first morning she wanted to check we were happy with everything and asked if we needed anything which was lovely, she made us feel very valued and welcome. Along with the beautiful setting of this hotel the staff are really what make this place so special with many of the staff working here for 20 years plus ! As soon as we stepped out of the taxi we were greeted by Sherwin who is always on hand to arrange your taxis and greet you when you arrive back at the hotel. Sherwin looked after me when i need to go to the medical centre to get some eye drops - he arranged the taxi and made sure the driver stayed with me until I had what I needed, and he even came looking for me later that day on the beach to check I was ok !! Tonya and her team on reception were awesome sorting out our trips and giving some good local knowledge nothing was ever to much and she arrange our late room check out so we could spend as much time enjoying ourselves on our last day. Sydney and Ryan kept us refreshed with Rum and lots of laughs at the bar ! we had met Sydney before and he really is amazing guy, so kind and works so hard as always he made us feel really welcome and looked after us making sure we had everything we needed - Happy hour ( two hours of half price cocktails) was a fun time of the day watching the sun set in the most amazing setting. Matthew and Nicholas kept us refreshed when we were working hard on our sun tans on the beach and around the pool bringing us food and drinks along with lovely canape's, fruit and cold towels which were all very welcomed !! Wayne and his team looked after all our beach needs and ensured everyone had what they needed. We met Wayne on our last visit he is a true legend and also helps us with 'turtle watch' we were very fortunate again this year to see turtles hatching at our hotel which the kids found amazing!! Thank you once again Colony Club and all the amazing staff we had an amazing time and really cannot wait to come back. See you soon The Castle's

We couldn’t have had a better start to our long awaited holiday. Arriving at the colony club our bags were quickly brought off to our room and we enjoyed a welcome punch in the lounge area while the check in was completed. In no time we were in our beautiful swim up pool king suite. The furniture was all well appointed and very good AC. We made use of the outdoor pool very fast. As you would expect from this category of hotel all the restaurants and bars were excellent. There was even drinks service to your beach chair. The buffet breakfast which was included wAs a grand affair. Big selection of hot and cold items which were changed around daily. There was evening entertainment and a managers cocktail party while we were there. Would have no hesitation to return here in the future. Great work guys, shout out to Stacy at the pool bar for her outstanding service.

We are just back from an amazing stay at the Colony Club, the hotel and gardens are beautiful, the food is incredible and the staff are friendly. Special mention to Tyrone on the bar, the loveliest man. And also the lovely porters, nothing was too much trouble. The selection of food at breakfast was vast and the quality was great, we were pleasantly surprised, considering a review we read before our holiday stated that the hotel only offers yogurt, fruit and nuts for breakfast, not true at all. The beach at Colony Club is beautiful, one of the best we saw during our holiday. The water taxi is a lovely addition and made days out much more fun. A lovely way to see part of the West Coast. Our room, 124, was clean and a good size for the 3 of us. We were really impressed at the little garden area we had too. The cleaners do a great job and we loved the ‘turning down’ service at night time, with a note and bottles of water left by each bed, really lovely touch. (The complimentary rum punch on arrival and also cookies, bottle of rum punch and fudge left in our room for us when we arrived with an invitation to a welcome cocktail party - made the experience feel extra special) The water sports included are also amazing and really made our holiday special, we tried things we wouldn’t have done otherwise. The pools could do with a touch of paint in certain areas, but it didn’t take away from our experience at all. They were clean and tended to everyday by the pool attendants. There are also plenty of sun loungers, no need to worry about people claiming them first thing in the morning and having to get up super early to get a seat! The only ‘negative’ I have is that a bird pooped on my head during breakfast one morning, however, we found it funny and certainly gave us something to laugh about. The hotel cannot control the wildlife, considering the restaurant is all open. Just beware when dining that the birds fly freely around the dining area! We absolutely loved our stay and hope to come back one day.

We always stay at Colony when we holiday on the island as we love the hotel’s chilled feel and it’s staff…. and so last week we had our wedding on the beach with close family. It was absolutely perfect. Karene from Colony planned and booked every detail once we had chosen the package and extras .. She made it stress free in the planning stage and on the day. We had the ceremony on the beach and had reception drinks served on the deck with a steel pan band. Karene went the extra mile and so if you’re planning to marry or even take a holiday in Barbados.. definitely consider Colony Club . Amazing 🤩

There is a reason we come back here every year and that’s because of the amazing staff. It’s so nice that the second we get dropped off we have the warmest of welcomes . To check in is very simple and straightforward and you do this why drinking your complimentary rum punch of course. The rooms are always cleaned to a great standard. Highly recommend this place.
