Today is the last day of a week long stay here at Colony Club, and I have to say I am very sad!!! This is place is so relaxing, pampering and kid friendly it's awe inspiring. I have be traveling to Barbados since I was a child (about 39 years), so I have stayed at a lot of places on...

Our second stay at the Colony Club and quite frankly we will happily return. Our visit was over the Easter holiday and the hotel was in fairly full swing. Being the school holidays it was a true family hotel with children a plenty. No complaints at all - it did everything it needed to. Lovely staff, clean and well equipped...

The food is great at all times but Sundays are better. Easter Sunday was exceptional. From the seafood starters to the fantastic grill to the carving table...exceptional fare. Staff service is great and ambiance is fantastic. Beside the freeformed pool for the eye, you have a pan band for the ear. Highly recommend.

We have just come back from a fabulous time at the Colony Club. Perfect for families. People lovely. We will be back next year for sure but hope that they improve the kids club and use the tennis courts more with the fab coach Ian! They could turn it into a kids tennis academy.

best suited for families with young children. The mornings are always fun as they start early (7-7.30am) when staff activity in the gardens and service areas (e.g. shovelling ice for the kitchen etc) and are full of competitive endeavours - our favourite being the 'get a beach chair' game which starts anywhere from 7am and finishes promptly at 8.30am (when...

We regularly stay at this hotel and, as usual, thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In particular noted the improved food in Laguna restaurant at night, and the entertainment and special nights were also better this year. As a result, we ate on site much more than in previous years.

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.
