The Club, Barbados Resort and Spa

Reviewed 28 August 2012

We stayed at The Club for 5 nights in a beachfront room. The sunset view from our room was absolutely breathtaking. The beach and pools are well maintained and the staff throughout the hotel were always happy to help us. The landscape throughout the hotel was beautiful and well upkept. We had meals at both restaurants and were pleased with the food throughout our stay. When we travel we like to get out and adventure a little bit, and Barbados had an abundance of things to do and they are all just a quick taxi ride away. The nightlife in barbados is a must! Can't wait to return!

Just got back from a very nice vacation at this resort. Was very impressed with all of the recent upgrades and remodeling that was done. The resort was very clean and welcoming. Staff was extremely nice and accomodating. Food was good and there was plenty of activities to keep us busy. Would definitely return for another vacation.

Our room was amazing, 3rd floor right on the water. We felt secluded yet close enough to the action that we didn't have to walk far. The food was outstanding and a great variety each meal each day. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We highly recommend taking the chartered catamaran trip, it was worth every penny, and utilizing the spa, it was outstanding. The only two down falls were the locals haggling us daily to rent a jet ski as we laid by the water on resort and we had to walk across the street to the conveinece store to buy bottled water for our room.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side, water front, are quieter.

Great resort for adults-only all-inclusive getaway. The accommodations are well maintained, the food delicious, the staff superb and the views are amazing. The location is outstanding as they are walking distance to shopping, movies and 5 star dining. The landscape makes it feel like you are secluded from the rest of the world.

Dear Valued Guests,

Please know that we strongly disagree with this guest's comments. We greatly appreciate feedback from our valued guests, but we also feel it is important to let you know when we disagree with a review.

The Club is a terrific property located on the popular West Coast of Barbados, just minutes from popular attractions like shopping and restaurants in Holetown, tours, excursions, and nightlife.

The resort's staff works very hard to ensure our guests enjoy a lovely Caribbean holiday. Over the past several weeks, significant improvements have been made around the resort.

The oceanfront sunbathing area has been topped off with fresh white sand, landscaping has been improved, new sun loungers installed, menu upgrades, and more. We continue to re-invest in the resort, making improvements on an ongoing basis to keep our guests happy and returning year after year.

The Club has a very loyal following, with a strong repeate client base. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, then The Club may not be for you. However, if you are looking for a fun, friendly, neat and clean resort....the only Adults Only All-Inclusive resort in Barbados...then The Club is the perfect place for your next Caribbean holiday.

The Club provides a refreshingly informal setting, while focusing on excellent service and developing strong, long-term relationships with our guests.

Please note that The Club receives very good reviews on a regular basis, and we continue working hard to maintain high levels of guest satisfaction.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this reply, and we hope to see you soon.

Kind regards,

The Staff & Management
The Club, Barbados Resort & Spa

Lovely holiday, food wonderful, complex amazing, rooms could do with updating, staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. On the whole an experience I want to repeat, we are fairly well travelled people but nowhere is more relaxing and calming than Barbados, the people are lovely, for the ultimate chill out this is the place to be. Shuttlles are available to take you to the sister hotels, the village was an amazing place, with the complimentary water ski-ing and boat rides to see the turtles in the clear blue water you feel spoilt rotten and if you like to party then an excursion to the Friday night Oistins fish fry is a must - a street party like no other, we have to get back there sooooon !!!
