First Visit to Barbados
Posted Sep 25, 2016
We were very pleased in our choice of hotel upon our arrival at the Colony Club. Overall, the condition of the property is very good, landscape very lush and appears well cared for. Each building had their own pool area for the most part. There is a beautiful pond surrounded in stone with koi fish and water lilies near the reception area. An open air/indoor restaurant (The Laguna) and an outdoor restaurant (Sunset) is available. The room was pleasant, plenty of hot water for showering, mini bar and good air conditioning system. Our stay was for 6 nights and we used the restaurants at the hotel for most all of our meals. Breakfast was included and the food selections each day was somewhat varied and very good. The hotel has a very good chef and the food served for our meals was excellent and of consistent quality. The beach was gorgeous- no grasses/weeds, clean sandy beach, crystal clear water, plenty of beach lounge chairs, towels. The hotel does offer some complimentary sport activities like stand up paddle boarding and small sail craft. The staff were really great people, friendly and accommodating if you needed anything. There were adequate staff at beach area, restaurants and public areas. Each day an information sheet is provided letting you know what activities are available that day provided by the hotel. We went on two tours arranged by the hotel - Mount Gay Rum Distillery and an Island tour going north of the hotel area and over to the east coast.
