Colony Club in Saint James, Barbados

Sprawled along the platinum west coast of Barbados, the award-winning Colony Club is a legendary resort on one of the Caribbean's most spectacular shores. Once a former colonial club, this now-modern hotel still sings the songs of its past, evident through beautifully maintained architectural details, richly vibrant gardens, and an atmosphere of warm hospitality. Just under 100 rooms and suites boast private balconies or patios, luxe marble bathrooms, and high-tech amenities like iPod docks, wireless Internet access, and flat-panel televisions. Light and airy in feel, each guest space reflects the beachy vibe of the paradise outside, with arched entryways, whitewashed ceilings, and colorful accents throughout. Waves Beauty Spa is an ideal place to start your vacation off well, perhaps with a Hot Sugar Body Polish, Aromatherapy Massage, or Waves Signature Facial. Additionally, the resort offers a 24-hour fitness center, and yoga, pilates, and water aerobics classes weekly.

When you are fully relaxed and refreshed, head out to the resort's four lagoon-style swimming pools, and find your perfect place in the sun. Check out Colony Club's own Aqua School to learn a bevy of water sports - including snorkeling sailing, boogie boarding, and paddle boarding. You can even take the Stand-Up Paddle Turtle Tour or a guided snorkeling excursion at nearby Folkestone Water Park. The concierge is expertly trained, and will provide you with just the right amount of assistance to book any island activities or off-site plans you find interest in. From catamaran cruises and glass-bottomed boat rides, to ATV safari tours and shopping trips, Barbados is quite literally your playground. Dining is a flavorful pleasure at the resort's dynamic venues, including The Laguna Restaurant for seafood and an open-air dining room, Daphne's Restaurant for oceanfront fine dining, and a duo of bars serving fresh cocktails and live evening entertainment. At Colony Club, relax and let your dream vacation fall into place, with an unforgettable Barbados experience and the best of everything.

Love staying at the Colony Club. Start the day with the great breakfast buffet after an early morning swim. The beach is well kept & organised with the sun beds & umbrellas. The diving/swimming raft is fun (& in much better repair than that of the neighbouring hotel!) We hadn’t realised the spa/hairdressers was still in action until the girls handed leaflets around so a lovely manicure saved the day and getting hair done before returning was brilliant. It is nice to have that facility. Well done ladies !! The wee gym is very good and has all the basics. The hotel is in a great location with an easy walk to Holetown. Staff are so lovely & friendly too. Can’t wait to come back to the Colony Club

After reading some negative reviews earlier in the year, we were a little concerned as to what to expect from the Colony Club. Having recently had our holiday there, I wanted to write an honest review in the hope it may help others. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay at the CC. It is set in beautiful grounds, the food and cocktails are great and the area is close to some very nice fine dining type restaurants. We personally didn’t find it in need of a renovation- our room was lovely and the main hotel areas were also well-kept. There were a few small scuffs/marks on our bedroom walls/floor but the overall quality, cleanliness and appearance of our room was excellent. There is an issue with sun beds on the beach still and we only managed to have two beach days due to people reserving beds from the early morning. The hotel does have a policy about not reserving for more than two hours but it’s near on impossible to police and many people don’t adhere to this unfortunately. Most of the staff are friendly and one beach ambassador in particular, Antonio, is fantastic. He was so friendly without being intrusive and was regularly providing us with lots of lovely things poolside, like frozen grapes and ice cream, on his working days. The main negative that perhaps other reviewers have picked up on is the service consistency. Some days we would have a beach ambassador like Antonio, always checking in and making sure the public areas were tidy and other days no one would be around at all. Some days, customer service at breakfast would be fantastic, other days not. Overall, we had a truly lovely holiday. The hotel is beautiful, reception helped with everything from dinner reservations to car hire and you had everything you could want right on your doorstep. We visited at a time when room prices were lower and so perhaps the little inconsistencies that didn’t bother us would be more noticeable to someone who paid peak prices. To us though, it was still a fantastic experience and we would come back again.

Colony club is definitely one of the best hotels I have stayed at. Very welcoming, gorgeous grounds with a private amazing beach. Great food and drinks. Small enough to make it cozy and somewhat private. I was there during my bday, the staff was so sweet they followed me to the beach where I was with a piece of cake and song happy bday to me, plus I received a bottle of bubbly. Very beautiful touch.

my husband and I recently visited the Colony Club whilst we were guests at the Tamarind. We have visited this hotel several times over the past 5 years. We got the water taxi to the beach and looked forward to spending another lovely day sunbathing, swimming and having lunch at the Sunset deck. Upon arrival we put our beach bags down and got 2 towels from the poolside and were very quickly pounced upon by a very rude 'beach ambassador' who was not 'friendly and going to attend to our every need'. He shouted and asked if we were staying at the Colony and I explained that we were guests of the Tamarind. He told me we were not allowed to use Colony towels and I explained that we had forgotten our own towels. By this time I had put one towel on my sunbed. He took the towel off the sunbed and turned it over - I thought he was going to take the towel off me. He then asked if iI had I. D. on me and I said that I did but then he didn't ask to see it and just marched off! Had he been wearing a name badge I would have reported him for his disgraceful,attitude. One female guest at the Colony Club came over to see if we were ok. I couldn't believe this young guys attitude - we have never been spoken to like that the whole time we have visited Barbados. LAter we decided to have lunch and asked for a table for two. The waitress advised there was a buffett that day but we just wanted to order from the set menu as we had done many times before but we were told that the menu was for residents only on Sundays!!!!By this time we decided that we had had enough of the Colony Club and went back to our friendly welcoming hotel (Tamarind). ALthough the hotel is lovely some of the staff are surly and need to go to any of the other hotels for customer service training. It has put us off going back.

It’s been six years since I last stayed at the Colony Club and this was my third stay to date. I was greeted by a familiar face and a ‘welcome home’ I booked a luxury ocean view room and I wasn’t disappointed. Room 239 was indeed Home from Home for two blissful weeks. Apart from the proud and friendly staff the Colony is in a fab location on a pretty stretch of beach with a front row seat every evening to watch the beautiful sunsets sipping cocktails or having an early dinner. It’s very well placed for many restaurants and strolling into Holetown is easy. For me these are the strengths of Colony Club, they offer something above and beyond which brings guests back sometimes year after year. Special mention to Housekeeping and Michael Jackson , a friendly smiley cab service from the hotel.
