Colony Club, - Don’t tell everybody!

Brentwood, United Kingdom

Our fourth trip to Barbados, each time to a different hotel, they have all been very reasonable but somehow none of them have been attractive enough to lure us back. This time the Colony Club had it all and we will definitely look to return. Location: West coast, about 45 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes walking into Holetown Accommodation: First appearance – very good, the hotel and grounds were well presented and well maintained, we were warmly greeted with a welcoming cocktail, after completing the usual formalities of checking-in we were shown to our Ocean view room. This was excellent, a clean decent size room, the usual formalities, including a mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, iron/ironing board, flat screen TV. The bathroom was a good size, with a twin sink set-up, the bath/shower was good it was easy to step in and out of the bath without feeling you were risking life and limb, complimentary toiletries were provided and regularly replaced. Double doors from the bedroom/sitting area opened on to a balcony area with a table and seating/lounging facilities. The balcony looked out across the beach area to the ocean. A great place to sit and watch the sunset. Dining: We were booked on a bed/breakfast arrangement however it was always a pleasure to eat all meals in-house. The wide variety of the food on the menus was always well prepared and well presented. It took away the incentive to go offsite but if required good restaurants can be found within close distances either by walking or by taxi. Beach/Pool: A good sandy beach, a smallish but adequate pool located in well maintained gardens, plenty of sun-loungers with umbrellas and small tables, also a number of loungers under natural shade provided by the palm trees. The beach was raked clean daily. There was of course the proverbial problem - reservation of sun loungers by early, early risers who then leave them unoccupied until sometime considerably later in the day. The hotel was trying to curtail this situation by implementing and policing a non-reserve policy before 7.30 a.m. - this was partially successful. We found that there were always sun loungers available either on the beach or around the pool. The beach attendants were always ready and willing to assist in relocating loungers if required. After 10.30 there were a number of attendants servicing your bar needs and also providing occasional complimentary canapes selections. Water Sports provided free of charge – paddle boards, Hobie cats, kayaks, water ski-ing, snorkelling Staff: What a delight – it was like being part of a big family, everybody was warm, friendly, cheerful and helpful. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Special mention goes to • Anita – omelette counter • Sandy – beach service waitress/attendant • Shane and Sobers – The Rum Lounge – this should not be missed! educational, enjoyable and just a lot of entertainment So many others – thank you I just didn’t get all your names! I’ll try to get them on our return!

It’s a shame as so much else is perfect

Water Sports at CC It’s easy to separate the hotel from the water sports because one is fabulous and the other is an embarrassment. The key is that staff at the water sport are contractors and are not employed by Elegant R and different from their other Barbados 🇧🇧 Hotels. Our first three days involved no water sports as red flag 🚩 but there were clear windows when a water ski boat could easily have gone out and done a few runs. Every piece of literature says they open at 9:15 but most days we saw the first ski at 10:45 after a turtle trip block booking. This usually involves the first six 15mins slots! They charge $50adults. So that means the flattest water opportunity early am is lost to a non water sport. Why? I made the Leisure Guest relations Manager aware of these issues early in our stay but nothing changed! The guys here get an hours shut down for lunch and everything’s stops but not so at other ER hotels. I offered to pay for an extra ski but was told they weren’t interested. In the end I went to the neighbouring hotel and hired their water sports guys. Incidentally their water sports cabin is spotless and resembles a BMW show room the Colony’s equivalent is a student digs. I am also concerned that the safety of swimmers is also being compromised. Paddle boarders regularly move across the swimmers sectioned off area without being told not to. There is no discipline from the water sports team to stop or correct the paddler or when he is coached. The hotel is fab with great staff and many repeaters. Big thanks to Ian on arrival, Trevor the best unknown guest relations advert, Sandra who runs many restaurant events so well, Tyrone behind any bar, Wendell for his great service. Many more who are always there. I only hope the management can sort out the watersports fiasco and ensure that more repeaters will continue to come every year.
