9.2.Superb.
  • 6.0.Good

    The property is shabby and the rooms out of date. The baths are too short. Things kept breaking - the lamps, the fan for example. The staff (front desk, beach and poolside) are wonderful apart from the breakfast team who were mostly awful and sullen. I found your food prices exceptionally high for what you got. Yes it was good enough but certainly not excellent. Shame. There are some excellent restaurants outside the hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed and didn't resent paying good money for. I loathed the hassle to reserve sun beds on the beach. If you did get up at 6.30am and get one, they were so close together it was uncomfortable.

    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.

    Colony club is central place for all thats happening in Barbados, great restaurants, bars, architecture and beaches. The locals are friendly and kind.
