Very Good 8.0
We stayed at the Colony Club for 5 nights in early November 2019. The best part about this hotel is its location and beach. Of all the hotels nearby, Colony Club has one of the nicest beaches. It's also only a 10 minute walk south along the beach to a bunch of restaurants and the town. The service is my biggest complaint. There are a lot of regulars or "returning guests" who seem to be treated with a higher level of service than those who are staying with the hotel for the first time. Also, the lunch at the hotel was not very good and overpriced. Other than that, our ocean view room was wonderful and the breakfast buffet was delicious. I would say Colony Club is the nicest of the mid-tier hotels on the island that won't break the bank.

The location is on the gold coast and the property has a nice secluded beach and calm waters since it is located on the Caribbean coast.

JULY 2019 stay. The colony club is on the smaller side but nonetheless a really nice vacation. The beach is small but the water is absolutely amazing. No need to save chairs, they will set up chairs upon your arrival. We stayed in a king pool view 229. It was cute, clean and well taken care of. The AC does not go higher than 16c and for the 1st day or 2 the maid kept lowering it to 23. It’s way too hot and humid to be playing with the AC regardless that it leaked. Other than that the accommodations were fine. Where we were it felt like we were in a private jungle like garden setting, very pretty. The food at this resort was top notch. From the free breakfast spread to the Tues night buffet and ala carte dinners, everything we ate was excellent. Try the BUSHWACKER drink it’s fantastic. The service, although the staff is very friendly and accommodating, the service is a bit slow. I think it’s just a very laxed way of life for the islanders and they don’t realize they have 2 speeds, slow and slower lol. This is not your typical 4-5 star kind of service but again it was fine. In 5 days we were never once approached on the beach or by the pool and offered drinks, we had to get up and get them. That kind of stinks when you’re on vacation. It rains daily on and off be careful it’s slippery. I fell cracked my knee and another guest broke her arm. This is a very British hotel.90% brits who are lovely people too, very friendly to us Americans.

This property is boutique in feel and size. It is well maintained and comfortable. Furthermore, the beach is beautiful. It is clean and the water is pristine. The staff is pleasant and friendly, but certainly on island time. We wanted to disconnect and relax, and this trip was perfect for that.

This property was excellent. The beach is great and right outside the door of our room. They have lots of water sports available. They have two sunning/diving platforms in the water. The pool is very nice and the winding river is pleasant. The breakfast was exceptional with a very large selection. The only negative experience was that beach and pool chairs were "reserved" very early in the day by people who never showed up or didn't show up for hours and the staff never released them for our use. We were slightly disappointed with the pool and beach service for drink availability by waiters, but we were able to go to the bar and get our own drinks. They do offer occasional fruit and snacks at your chair.
