I went out of season in September. The value for money was outstanding. Quiet, but not too much so. The room was outstanding. newly refurbished and the one I had 136 was perfect. Felt very safe, swimming right from the patio and the option to sit in the shade if necessary. The upper floor rooms, same price but restricted balcony...

Trying to pick a hotel to stay in Barbados? Stop looking, this is it. I have stayed in some nice hotels e.g. Carlton Cannes, Waldorf NYC etc but this really is the best place I have stayed at. We had a lovely luxury pool room that was clean and new with a large private open space leading directly to a...

Very happy with this hotel. Booked one of the more basic rooms situated back from the beach but actually thought this was better as room was very quiet without the busy beach/pool area. Excellent choice of food for breakfast but was not impressed by the only dinner taken which was overpriced for what it was. A number of small eateries...

Stayed here for two weeks in August 2014 with my wife and two teenage children. Easy half hour drive from the airport, which is situated south of Bridgetown.

We've just returned from a very enjoyable 2 week stay. The location is good with a great beach front and excellent watersport facilities. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful but sometimes you wish they were a bit more adept.

Ask a question
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.
