Loved our stay at the Colony Club, hotel and rooms are lovely. Super beach. Staff are really friendly and efficient and the food is as good as many of the higher ranked restaurants on the island! Would love to return!

We spent a splendid week at The Colony Club, the first three days guests of Mount Gay Distillers, and found the resort and island to be wonderful. The historic Colony Club is situated on Barbados' West Coast, the leeward side, and is a great get-away. The Club provides a fine beach, several pools, bars, restaurants and water sport activities. But...

I first visited Colony Club with my wife 38 years ago! We booked bead and breakfast but on arrival, after the advice from my brother in law, negotiated half board. This turned out to be a smart move. Colony Club is a top hotel and is renowned for good food and service. By going half board you can control your...

First time we have used this hotel although our third time in Barbados. From the moment we arrived the week has been perfect, a friendly reception and check in. Ocean view room nicely finished everything fresh and clean and working. We are here on a half board basis after being all inclusive on previous trips to the island.The ability to...

This was our first time to Barbados for our honeymoon and certainly wont be out our last! We stayed at Colony Club for 1 week in a Junior Suite with Garden view. We were greeted warmly by the General Manager Susan which was a nice touch and then offered a Rum Punch as we were told all about the hotel....

Checked in for 10 nights and in the main everything was good. You will need a taxi when going out in the evening as the main restaurants are a mile away along a dark and busy road. Great beach. The majority of the staff were great, especially the breakfast and pool guys. Some of the reception desk personnel were very...

We returned to the Colony Club for a short stay recently, the greeting you get from the minute you step out of the taxi is just great - which then continues on through every member of staff during your stay. The Staff, Location, Rooms, Food and overall feel is just brilliant - we love this place, it just feels like...

I returned a few days ago from a short stay at the Colony Club. I generally travel solo and was looking for the right resort that would be a good fit, and the Colony was perfect! There are roughly 90 rooms and suites which makes the resort not too big or small. I never had an issue finding a beach...

Spent two weeks here - initially disappointed has we had chosen a sea view room. We found the room dark and small compared to our usual room - a luxury poolside. However, although fully booked, the management offered to move us after our first week to the room we had had before. Much better. The holiday was relaxing and we...

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.
