We stayed here for 12 nights in an ocean view room. It was a great holiday overall and my wife and I really enjoyed Barbados. The hotel is really well maintained and the room we had was perfect. I did see a deluxe ocean view room and on my return I would probably stump up the extra and go for...

I recently stayed at the Colony Club for three nights as a short vacation prior to a business trip elsewhere in the Caribbean. Considering the hotel is pitching itself in the market as a 5* star premium resort there are several factors which fall somewhat short. Firstly in agreement with one earlier recent review the rooms are not what you...

Our first week of our Caribbean holiday was at the Colony Club and we were not disappointed. Having booked a junior suite garden room we had a large room and balcony.

Although we only stayed one night on route to the Grenadines I felt that I had to submit a review as I definitely do not agree with the previous gushing remarks. We had a garden room which smelt strongly of damp, the paintwork was badly in need of redoing, the floor tiles were grubby to say the least, there was...

From the time that we arrived we were treated to a stay which was wonderful throughout. We had a garden room at the back of the hotel which was nice and quite and comfortable. The swimming pools are very attractive and set in both gardens and open areas to suit all. The restaurant foods was excellent, but not cheap. However...

Loved this hotel.....the staff were lovely and the rooms were a good size. Nice open layout to the rear where the hotel flows straight onto the beach. Have to get up before 7am to get the beach beds unfortunately but that's the norm these days. Get out and walk up the beach to the right for about 20 mins at...

Like many other reviewers I can't give this hotel enough praise! It's spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic, We had a Junior Suite which was fab as it came with a lounge and bar area away from the bedroom so it felt like a mini apartment and was really spacious.

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.
