We have just returned from a very pleasant stay at the Colony Club. The hotel is nice, and we had a sea view room which was great, although a tiny bit tired in places. The staff are welcoming and the service is good. The hotel is conveniently located with a lot of popular restaurants being just a short taxi ride away. Holetown is around a ten to fifteen minute walk, however at night it is easier to take a taxi because in some places there is no pavement, but during the day it’s a pleasant walk. The hotel is not huge and everything is within easy reach. The hotel has a good beach although the beds are set up very close to each other, however there is room to move around. The sea is lovely. The food in the hotel was good but quite pricey, and breakfast could have a little more variation. As there are lots of restaurants nearby, we ate out most days. The food on the island was amazing everyehere we ate. A few negative things I wanted to point out for management. On one ocassion I was given dirty beach towls. The beach and pool beds are quite filthy. Although the beach towels cover the whole bed, it is no excuse for these not be cleaned regularly. I found the music in the restaurant playing at breakfast and dinner quite unsuitable. No wants to hear British music, instead it would be nice to hear some local music more fitting for the caribbean and the island. Lastly, during the majority of our stay we found the hotel to be mainly adults, however, within the last few days a few families appeared with very small children. Personally I do not feel the Colony Club is suited for families with small children. As I mentioned the proeprty is not huge and the hotel doesn't seem to focus on children's activities and areas. I really think the Colony Club would be suited to an Adults Only property. Other than these few issues, we had a lovely holiday.

Elegant and comfortable luxury

We spent a week here. They have great facilities. The room was beautiful and comfortable. Great pool and swim up bar. Awesome beach service. Staff is friendly, they offer complimentary tour and activities. We enjoyed our stay. The only negative was the overpriced and not so good food.

Cannot fault at all

From arriving in our frost day to departure, I cannot fault this hotel at all. The location is fantastic, the staff have gone out of their way to be incredibly helpful and friendly, and the upkeep has been brilliant. We arrived in off season, and was given a complimentary bump up to a Junior Suite room which has the nicest amenities and location right next to the pool. The breakfast has a great choice of food, and the food in the restaurant for dinner was excellent. The complimentary ice cream they serve to their customers even in the beach in mid afternoon was just the icing in the cake.

Great service and beautiful hotel.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay! What we loved: 1. We thought the service was warm, friendly and welcoming. As other reviewers mentioned sometimes the pace is slow, but in my experience that is everywhere in the Caribbean 2. We were upgraded to a junior garden suite and appreciated the extra space 3. The pool and beach are beautiful 4. The breakfast each morning was great and convenient before we went diving 5. Our housekeeping staff came 2x a day and were very responsive to requests 6. The location was good for a 15 minute walk into town for restaurants 7. Dive shop right next door (Hightide) was convenient What could be improved: 1. We didn't think the bedding and pillows were that comfortable. 2. The shower was awkward. It was included as part of the deep corner tub so we had to step up over the high tub wall to get to the shower. Would be really tough for elderly or anyone with any issues. 3.The bugs! Mosquitos and small black files were constant, even in mid-afternoon. Made it tough to sit on our balcony or even by the pool to read. Could just be the season but the bugs were relentless even with spray. 4. The food was good but not great. 5. Limited pool and beach seating. We vacationed in the off-season (sept) but still not easy to get a chair. Overall we loved the people and had a great time but some slight improvements would have made it a 5 star revies.

Fantastic holiday

Have just returned from a lovely 2 week stay at the Colony Club. The hotel is fantastic, perfect location on probably one of the best beaches on the west coast. We had a luxury poolside swim up room which was amazing. The staff were friendly and efficient. Contrary to other reports there was no problem with sun loungers. Beach ambassadors came round 3-4 times a day with fruit ice cream and other treats. Complimentary breakfast was fab. Restaurant food was good quality and always served with a smile. Would 100% recommend Colony club.
