It’s on the outside of town which means large coaches can stop here so groups like it and although at night on the whole it’s quieter than sleeping in town as it also caters for functions and we had one evening where we were disturbed by a band quite late into the night. Add to this the tour groups arriving and departing in the nighttime hours and voices and suitcases bumping along the cobbles reverberating around the complex and it doesn’t always make for a peaceful sleep.

It looks OK on the surface and is tastefully done up to look like an old colonial town and has a nice courtyard garden area but it lacks charm or personality, the staff aren’t particularly friendly, the rooms are rather dated and certainly the ground floor ones smelt damp and needed airing, and the beds were hard. Breakfast was poor with fruit which was on the turn and needing to be replaced and the scrambled eggs were very overcooked; on the other hand the Sunday buffet was much better. On the positive the bathrooms were good with powerful showers and decent towels and the Wifi was good too.

I was very surprised to be charged for water as no other hotel I’d stayed in did that and as for the laundry don’t get me started. I made the mistake of assuming that it would be cheaper here than to do it at the amazing 5* hotel in the centre of Antigua I moved on to when my group left. Wrong, Villa Colonial charged 3x the amount of the other hotel and it wasn’t even particularly well laundered. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

Bottom line, if you are in an organized group this is fine but for any kind of quality head elsewhere.

The hotel is located on a quiet street just outside the city centre but it is only a short walk in. It is a typical colonial hotel and has a large open courtyard and the rooms are in a sort of "typical village" street inside the hotel! On reflection it is built as a sort of "mini" town. The room we had, on the first floor was quite small and had no fan or A/C - it was warm and on opening the windows - there was no mossie screen! Room had a double bed, no fridge or tea/coffe makings, wardrobe, chest of drawers with a TV on it, and a suitcase stand. The toilet/bath/shower was small but functional - the shower was powerful! There was also limited toiletries available. Bottled water in the room was $US1.00. We had a shared verandah. Hotel does have a lot of stairs!
Breakfast was good.

We stayed at Villa Colonial for my birthday in february.
It´s a cozy hotel, with great Antigua colonial style. The restaurant is very convenient for breakfast and dinner, specially because the hotel is pretty far from the plaza and all the hustle and bustle. It´s not centrally located, you NEED a car.
The pool is disappointing, so small.
I was able to get a great package including breakfast and dinner, so we were satisfied with our stay.

This is a classical colonial type place with comfortable rooms, somewhat sparsely decorated with few amenities. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and workers are often observed maintaining the grounds. However, the pool has a lot of leaves and stuff floating, as if it hadn't been cleaned in a while. It also had a somewhat unpleasant odor which really detracted from my enjoyment of the pool.
Lunch was pre-ordered. The salad was not fresh and had to be returned. It was replaced with a plate of nice, ripe avocado slices and onion, which was barely adequate. The sautéed fish was good, nicely prepared and very fresh.

Overall, this is very popular among groups, and the hotel needs some improvement in attention to detail..

I stayed 3 nights. Room without window - if one does not count with the bathroom window facing a courtyard. The outside of the hotel looks very nice, the garden is well kept, there is a swimmingpool that noone used during my 3 days stay. The restaraunt has brilliant service and food adjusted to US tourists.
Laundry service - very quick but the pants i had washed still smell detergent. And the room - dark with little decoration and a dust-cover over most things. In reception they claimed that one can see international news channels on the TV - no you cant - you can only see 3 local channels, most of the time with "dramatic" soapoperas or programs where Laura Bozzo screams. But the bed is comfortable.
In the bathroom one is asked to throw toiletpaper in a basket and not flush it - but then.... install wastebaskets with lids.... please.
Reception is a sleepy and tired place .. it took them 10 minutes to organise the opening of the meeting room...
