We stayed at Colony Club in 2012 and didn't expect to return. However having had a poor experience at Galley Bay on Antigua in 2013 and knowing that the hotel had been rennovated in the meantime we decided to go back. We were not disappointed. Our room was one that had been refurbished and it was very nice. The Laguna restaurant has also been improved.
The food is a very good standard, no complaints at all. We stayed half-board and the special evenings such as lobster night help to break up the menu.
We find the staff all very friendly and helpful - special thanks to Corey and Matthew on the beach.
There are one or two irritations however. There is a group of older English couples who clearly have been going for many years and they seem to get preferential treatment - seated before everyone else at breakfast for example. By far the biggest annoyance is the way that they bag all the best sunbeds by getting up in the middle of the night. One couple had 4 chairs for the day, 2 in the sun and 2 in ths shade. The hotel needs to stop this somehow.
Generally we loved Colony Club and have already booked for next year.
