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!

From the moment we checked in with seating and complimentary drinks to the moment we checked out, everything was done to accommodate your wishes. A lovely Koi Pond in the reception area. First night tapas dinner at the rum vault, with seating for 8 plus excellent prepared food and drinks, plus an excellent presentation of rum distillery and many different drinks, We had a garden view room, with plenty of tropical foliage and mango tree to tease us with not yet ripe fruit. Very laid back, If your are looking for a hot nightspot this is not for you, but if you want ocean, swimming, snorkeling with turtles, relaxation plus super service. This is the way to go. Side trips like deep sea fishing, trips to the caves, and many more can all be arranged from hotel.

This was our 4th visit to the Colony Club. We stayed in a ground floor room which fronted a small pool, exactly the same room from our previous visit. Our 2 sons and their wives/partner also stayed in similar rooms nearby. Although it could do with a lick of paint here and there and some refreshing in areas, it would be a disaster if it changed radically. We heard rumours that the new owners, Marriott group, were planning to make it an all inclusive resort next year. Everyone I spoke to, including many regular returnees, said they would no longer stay if that was the case. I cant see the point, since Barbados has many great restaurants, cafes and bars. We have stayed at a large all inclusive Marriott in St. Kitts but there were few local places to eat and it made sense there. Other islands, like St Lucia, Grenada and Antigua which we have visited, also have more all inclusives as there are few good local restaurants to choose from.
I fear that the introduction of all inclusive would change the demographic of clients, and would necessitate the building of at least another restaurant. Why change a winning formula?

Hi, We really love the Colony Club but we found out on our last trip that The Marriott Group have taken over most of the Elegant resorts including this hotel. I just don’t know just what changes they are going to make to the hotel so for this reason I could not suggest it . I know the Tamarind too, but that looked very tired in Feb!! I would wait and see. I hope this helps and have a wonderful trip!!

Are the poolside swim up rooms ground floor only or could you be given a first floor room with steps down ?
Answer from acr7
Nov 2019 |
Thats right - there are first floor rooms that would be described as poolside. It may be possible to specify ground floor (i.e. true swim up) when you make a booking? Either way, the poolsode rooms are all nicely located in the hotel

We were in the ocean view one bedroom and it was perfect. We could not get sun on the patio, there are trees between the beach and the hotel. But it was lovely and we had coffee and drinks outside everyday. If we go back I would want the same exact room.
