Very good 8.0
Great stay at the colony club
Fantastic location for Holetown and beautiful spot on the beach. Not the fanciest of places but friendly staff, great cocktails and food.
Jenna, gb8 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Poor value for money
Generally good all around, no complains. Massively overpriced for what it is though. Full of Brits and with their offsprings, if you after a quiet escape, it is not, look elsewhere.
Denis, gb7 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Very relaxing good location staff v friendly - a lot of returning customers which speaks volumes - lacks the pretentiousness of other resorts in the area

Colony Club
Colony club is central place for all thats happening in Barbados, great restaurants, bars, architecture and beaches. The locals are friendly and kind. The Hotel is excellent, great service, great people and good value. Some bits are looking a little tired. Ive stayed in Barbados 14 times, 8 at the Colony Club, twice this year

Amazing hotel
This hotel really pays attention to detail, the staff are so welcoming and can’t do enough for you! Would definitely visit again the food was out of this world and the beach on your doorstep with freshly laid towels every morning by the staff who will ensure your stay is one to remember
Melissa, gb5 night romance trip

The most relaxing place ever with so many wonderful restaurants nearby. Great that they do bed and breakfast rather than all inclusive.

Excellent hotel
This was my second stay at the Colony Club. I would recommend the hotel to anyone and will definitely return next year. Overall I have no complaints. The only negative is the wifi - this was very slow and often did not connect.
