The was one of the worst accommodations I have ever seen, especially for an all inclusive resort. The amenities were deplorable and outdated. I am truly shocked that this resort has the rating outlined and is one your Agency recommends to those traveling abroad. I was truly disappointed.

Almond Beach Club Resort in Barbados

First, let me say that my husband & I had a wonderful time in Barbados. The hotel staff was excellent from the front desk to the water sports staff. The all-inclusive meals were fabulous. We had the pleasure of dining at both our resort and the sister hotel and we were never disappointed. We were surprised to be one of a few Americans at our resort but had so much fun hanging out with the British tourist and the Bajan people. Now the only minor downfall is that the hotel rooms need some updating and the internet connections barely existed. Because we know the resort is going through a transition and the fact that our room had a spectacular view with a great bed and decent furniture we would still recommend this resort. Some of the things needing updating are the refrigerator, tv, bathrooms and the gym equipment. The location of the gym in the spa area was perfect but besides the cardio equipment the weights system were completely outdated and a stepping machine didn't work at all. But the sauna and the entire spa layout was first class as well as the ladies who did the work. Overall, I would definitely consider returning once upgrades were done.

My husband and I were the youngest guest there and we’re 40. It’s definitely a venue for older clientele. The food was excellent, the rooms comfortable. The staff were hit and miss... some friendly, some rude! There is no decent beach for this hotel... the photos and description are misleading! Also the pools are very, very cold!!! The evening entertainment was ok... but again geared towards an older generation. Would not return.

We had a timeshare week to exchange and used it to stay at Club Barbados. We have stayed in Barbados a few times over the years and also enjoyed as a port of call on at least one cruise. We had previously stayed at this resort on our first visit to the island years ago. The facility is showing it's wear and tear. Our first room was on the right rear area of building where the dumpster and car traffic were heard. We had a number of problems with the safe not working properly. The room needed to have renovation as the bathroom cabinet and entry doors were worn. Since we attended the manager's cocktail hour, we had the opportunity to express our concern about the frequent problems with staff needing to attend to our safe and the noise making it difficult to sleep at night. Thank you Rodcliff Massiah for addressing our situation and placing us in another room that was much more renovated and not with heavy traffic. Although there are only two restaurants, the one main restaurant changed their menus daily. Breakfast buffet was good with an cook to order station. Lunch was buffet and was okay but could have used a few other additions. Dinners were very good. Liquor was limited to generally once choice by type. Wine was generally good selection with white, red and rose'. We had stayed at Sandals Barbados for a day trip and the food and liquor were on par although significant difference with the facilities as one was significantly renovated and the other suites were brand new and beach expansive although quite windy and rugged water.. Some entertainment or local artists were at Club resort daily. Guests were predominantly from UK, Canada and with some U.S. Guests were very cordial and many had stayed at the Club for some time and man'y times before. Age group of guests would be primarily over age 45 but there were also some younger adults as well. They also offered some free water sports such as reef fishing although in a small boat with shared equipment for guests. As has been noted, there isn't a beach but a patch of area before the sea wall with some sand and loungers. Most of these were occupied early in the AM. There was more of a beach when we were there years ago but the storms and surge have taken a toll on what remains and the sea wall. Staff was very pleasant. Wi-fi was okay in the public areas. The spa is small and the therapist was very good. The sauna and steam room were not running as they need to be notified ahead of time if you plan to use them to turn them on. Unlike some other islands you will be more comfortable traveling about (although we didn't drive as they drive on left side). Buses exist although can be very crowded. There is a small shopping center across the street and a few miles down the road a Chattel village with shops and a few restaurants. Overall was a good vacation although they need to do some more extensive renovations in some of the rooms, facility and beachfront areas.

8th visit!

Travelled to the Club for the 8th time and this time with our grown up family and partners. Introduced them to the wonderful team. Loved our beachfront rooms and the food in sunset. Water skied and enjoyed the sunsets every night. Fab as ever.

We've stayed at The Club Barbados twice and had breakfast at the resort on several occasions. Each time has been nothing less than perfection. As locals on the island, it is very refreshing to experience genuinely friendly staff. I can truly say the resort has never let me down where this is concerned. During our last visit (Easter holiday), the hotel had lots of entertainment including an Easter egg hunt, Bingo, Cultural show with Tuk Band, Mother Sally, Stilt Walkers, a flag girl dressed in Kadooment costume and Shaggy Bears. If that wasn't impressive enough, there was also a limbo show with fire. The true spirit of Cropover was brought to the resort. Our room was beautiful, the water sports were fun as usual, drinks and food to die for. But all of these things can't compare to the staff. Thank you Janee, Geraldine, Richard, Saneta (bar). You were all wonderful! Until next time.
