Colony Club by Elegant Hotels
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Porters
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We have now visited the Colony Club 6 times in the last 3 years, with our full family and just myself and my wife. We have already booked for January 2015. We are fortunate and could well afford to stay anywhere on the island, but we choose the Colony Club. That should say it all.

Stayed: March 2014

We have just returned from the Colony Club for our second time and have had the most amazing holiday. The location of the hotel is beautiful and the food of a very high quality. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, however we must give a special mention to Keown and Jason at the water sports centre who were both so helpful and patient and helped to make the holiday one that we wouldn't forget. The saying of our two weeks "take your time"!!!

Spent a very relaxing week celebrating my wife's 50th birthday. We couldn't have been looked after better. Had a beautiful Ocean View room and woken each morning tempted outside by the lapping of the waves against the golden sands. Seafood in the hotel was excellent especially after the customary Bajan Rum Punch. Loads of water sports including Scuba available although the beach alone is much more than adequate.

Lovely medium sized hotel and staff really excellent.a real Bajan feel.
Probably not for you if you are a Hotel Snob but for high quality relaxed accommodation and excellent food you will find the Colony Club hard to beat.

Special mention for Meschelle one of the waiting staff who was so lovely to our youngest boy.

If we came back to Barbados we would definitely consider this Hotel.

Ps although the Spa is small the massages are one of the best I have had....and I have had a lot.

Lovely holiday. keep up the good work Colony Club.

Mr and Mrs Wardley.

We spent a week at the Colony Club and had a great time. The room was overlooking the beach and was clean and adequate. The bed was very comfortable and huge, needed a walkie talkie to speak to my husband!!!
The staff there could not do enough for you they were polite and helpful at all times. The grounds and garden were kept beautifully. The pool cleaned every day and the beach combed everyday too.
Some of the staff were so helpful Chucky thank you, also Terry your smile and laugh were very infectious, thank you.
I did the yoga and aqua aerobics and both were fantastic , I enjoyed them very much. For the money we spent we both thought it was reasonable. I would recommend this hotel for couples and couples with young children.

Room Tip: Our room was a good view of the beach and the sea. 205

Had two weeks here recently having been before 18 years ago and found it much the same. Since our last visit we have travelled extensively and are therefore more critical than we were first time round. Staff were mixed in terms of friendliness and helpfulness. Food was average- certainly not 'fine- dining' and breakfast quality was not as good as other hotels in the West Indies. Omelettes made to order were the best choice. Making toast was a long- drawn out experience as the two toasters were so inadequate that bread had to be put through twice which meant queues -with frustrated guests. The Sunset Bar and Terrace were lovely after an afternoon on the beach but service was very slow and often took 15- 20 mins to get a drink. Eating at night here was difficult as candlelight was not sufficient to dine with. The Bajan Fish buffet was average but the International buffet was better. We ate next door at the Coral Reef Club several times where both the service and food - for almost the same price- were impeccable.We also ate at other local restaurants which were equally good. Such a pity that the Colony Club with a better beach couldn't
match the culinary expertise of their neighbour.! The beach is great for swimming and combined with the water sports is hard to beat. Downside is the close proximity of the sun- loungers which are hard to get front- line if you arrive late. Beach touts are around a little but are well- mannered and not intrusive.Our room was at the back of the hotel and away from the main building. It was a bit dated but a very big room which we kept rather than asking to change. Housekeeping was a bit erratic - not consistent- and our room wasn't usually serviced until mid- afternoon. The supplied hairdryer was so sticky and was obviously not cleaned regularly.Footpaths were hosed every morning which made them slippery- a bit dangerous,The hotel is in a lovely situation with a great beach but we feel that if we came back again we would use it as a base only and eat out much more often- which a lot of guests seem to do.

Room Tip: Room 127 was very spacious, secluded but with no view. A bit dated but very private with lots of war...
