There are many reasons why we have returned to the Colony Club every year for the past 5 year: the wonderful, incredibly attentive staff; the meticulously maintained grounds; the excellent location on the "gold coast"; the comfortable and quiet nature of the place. But perhaps the most important reason was shown to us again this trip. We arrived and were...

After much research on this site we decided on The Colony Club for our first ever visit to Barbados to celebrate a wedding Anniversary. The hotel on being told this presented us with a bottle of Sparkling wine, which we enjoyed on our terrace one evening. Overall we were very happy with our stay in this most attractive hotel set...

This was our first time in Barbados. Wow. We loved it. The Colony Club is fantastic. Quiet enough to feel special, enough going on not to be bored. Rooms are fab. Food is fab. Location is the best. We will be going back next year.!

It was our first and not last trip to Barbados and we are glad that we stayed at the Colony Club. It is truly a nice laid back place. Not elegant or luxurious but very nice and pleasant. Our room was very good. I would say one of the better attributes was the pleasant and helpful staff. They really care....

We have stayed in great hotels all over the world but our stay at the Colony Club was outstanding!

I recently stayed at the Colony Club for three nights as a short vacation prior to a business trip elsewhere in the Caribbean. Considering the hotel is pitching itself in the market as a 5* star premium resort there are several factors which fall somewhat short. Firstly in agreement with one earlier recent review the rooms are not what you...

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.
