Watersports team made our holiday
Having visited CC many times, the hotel lived up to expectations. Despite Covid checks being in place, the hotel coped very well. As always the place could do with being maintained a little better than it is. The beach is great. But the whole holiday experience was made special by Jamal and his watersports chums. Friendly, helpful and skilled at helping guests get the most out their activities.
Old World Charm
I was a little apprehensive having read the reviews about the hotel being tired and dated, but what I experienced was very different. Yes it could probably do with some painting and renovations in areas but what Colony Club has in spades is colonial charm and the feel of a private club rather than a sprawling corporate hotel. We found the staff to be lovely during our stay, accommodating and helpful. I wish I had got the name of a particular gentleman in Laguna, who served us with drinks in a kind and jovial manner each evening. I think it may have been Terry but didn’t see him again to ask. The food was very good overall although a few more vegetarian options would have been welcomed, especially on the Curry and Seafood special nights. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, better than those I’ve had in larger hotels. Cocktails delicious - Kir Imperial one of the best I’ve ever had and Mai Tai’s pretty special too. Colony Club is on a beautiful stretch of beach and the sunbeds with thick, comfortable mattresses and plentiful pink beach towels make it even more appealing. The grounds are well maintained and there’s lots of areas to sunbathe around the four small pools in the resort. If you’re looking for a shiny, modern, polished hotel then this probably isn’t the place for you but if you want laid back understated old world charm then definitely plan a stay. I hope that Marriott will keep it that way rather than going down the all inclusive road as they have with Tamarind, Crystal Cove etc. We visited those two and there was no charm at all. Colony Club, you are lovely as you are. ❤️
The hotel is situated at the west coast of Barbados, ideally for watching the beautiful sunsets. The beach is very nice and the water warm and clear. The hotel has very nice resort-feel with lots of greenery and palm trees. We had a luxury pool room on the second floor with its own stairs directly into one of the 5 pools. The individual pools are not connected which is a bit sad, as they are not very large and they are really warm so you won‘t cool off. The room itself was spacious and clean. The restaurant was open, so mind the mosquitos and the birds, who constantly try to steal food from the table and are dangerously sitting above your heads. Some of the workers at the restaurant seem a bit unmotivated, but the majority is very friendly and helpful. The best is Sandy who serves at the deck restaurant and on the beach who was always cheerful and always had a few friendly words when passing us by. Very helpful were Rico and Anique from the front desk and Emma from housekeeping. We had a really nice stay and would recommend it to friends and family.
A very nice hotel not to expensive on Barbados standards main restaurant Is lovely and the menu is excellent. The free water sking and sailing is also excellent. The location is close to many fantastic restaurants if you want to go out and explore,the island is in a 9 pm lock down at the moment but did not affect our trip as the hotel bar stays open later. The airport testing is fast and you get your results 24 hours after landing no big problem as you can stay around the pool until you get the e mail and eat in the main restaurant no problem We came with ba holidays and I think is excellent value Don’t be put off by the early closing or the testing on arrival it’s easy
Really relaxing and stunning
We have stayed here before and still beautiful as before. Beach is stunning and love the pools. Meals very good and staff very friendly. We stayed in an ocean view and my only niggle is the bathroom is dated and the shower a nightmare to use. The staff work tirelessly.
