Spent ten days at The Colony Club and must say overall had a wonderful stay. The initial greeting from the general manager was fabulous and check in was carried out in the lounge over a glass of rum punch,which was a really nice touch. The hotel is in a wonderful location directly on the beach, the pool and gardens are...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Our second stay at this wonderful hotel with our friends. Ten days went far too quick as we relaxed on the beautiful beach, had wonderful meals under the stars on the sun deck and swam in the lovely pools. The staff were all wonderful and very helpful, many were there last year and it was nice to see them again....

I had the pleasure of staying at this resort with my mom. Only my second time in the Caribbean, first in Barbados. My mom has been at the Colony Club several times so it was great going with someone who knew the area because the location is perfect to take advantage of trips into Holetown. The resort itself is wonderful,...

Visited here for my 50th birthday and wasn't disappointed at all! Room (junior suite) on first floor with a pool view was lovely! Location of the hotel is great for a nice wander in to Hole town (very friendly people there) the staff at the hotel were great - especially Rachaud who worked on the bar and made delicious cocktails!...

I have never had such a wonderful holiday at such a wonderful hotel with such lovely people. We are saving hard to come back next year. The guests were lovely and friendly and the staff fantastic.

What more can one want from a hotel? We received our normal warm welcome and welcome cocktail and were introduced to the new General Manager, Susan Spinger. Throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble, service was good (carried out in the main by the same staff as in previous years) food was great and the room kept to a...

Stayed B and B for our 3rd time at the hotel. Visited all the usual fine dining restaurants but the best meal by far was in the hotel. We could see the new manager had made improvements. Would certainly recommend for a relaxing holiday.

This was our third trip to Barbados but first time to the Colony Club. We absolutely loved it. The hotel is small enough to feel special but there was plenty of space in the restaurants and on the beach for everyone to relax. The staff were amazing. Once checked in the reception staff knew who we were and were so...

London, UK

I am staying at the Colony Club in a week's time and am getting married whilst there. I have a few questions:

(i) I have heard terrible things about the shortage of sun loungers and the fact that what little few there are have towels placed on them before 6am and thus cannot be used. Is it possible to reserve sun loungers with the hotel or to ask the hotel for them during the day when we need them or do we have to do without? I know that some other guests have emailed the hotel about this in advance of their stay. Is it worth me doing this?

(ii) As our trip is will be both our wedding and our honeymoon we are staying in one of the 'Luxury Ocean View' rooms. Has anybody stayed in such a room? Are they nice? Are they noisy? Do they have a proper sea view or is it a side-on restaurant view like some people have suggested?

(iii) How isolated is the hotel? Is it possible to walk into Holetown either along the beach or along the road? I would prefer to walk than to have the hassle of arranging a taxi every time I wanted to leave the hotel. I also understand that buses pass by the hotel but that they are not very frequent, especially at night. Roughly how long would it take to walk into Holetown?

(iv) There have been quite a few very negative reviews of the restaurant at Colony Club recently. Is the food / service as bad as they seem to make out?

I am sure our stay at the Colony Club will be nice but as it is our wedding and honeymoon I would like it to be really special and I am becoming increasingly worried about things like the unavailability of sun loungers and sea views and so would appreciate it if someone could put my mind at rest.
