    Touting 96 guest rooms and suites – each with a flat-screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access, an espresso machine and a private patio or balcony – the Colony Club in Holetown, Barbados, prides itself on its family-friendly atmosphere. Kids can attend the resort's Aqua School to learn how to snorkel or windsurf, or the whole family can embark on an island excursion and swim with local turtles (a must-do, according to recent guests). Children of all ages can also enjoy seasonal kids activities and are welcome at the two on-site, open-air restaurants, which boast kid-friendly menus. If you don't have youngsters in tow, Colony Club offers an array of adult-focused amenities, including yoga and Pilates classes, couples massages and private dining, including inside the guest-approved Rum Vault, where you'll have your pick of 150-plus kinds of rum. You can also explore the restaurants or beachfront activities available at other west coast Elegant Hotels properties by hopping on one of Colony Club's free water taxis. Overall, recent visitors loved staying here, although a few said the property's facilities did not warrant the high room rates.

    Blending the signature refinement of the Fairmont brand with the soothing atmosphere of Barbados' Platinum Coast, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is a luxurious hideaway. Guests praise the elegantly decorated oceanfront rooms, suites and villas, which were refreshed in November 2017. Standard room amenities include furnished balconies or terraces, coffee makers and flat-screen TVs with DVD players. Plus, all accommodation rates cover in-room Wi-Fi access, on-site parking, daily breakfast for two, one afternoon tea credit per seven-night stay, twice-weekly yoga classes, daily swimming with turtles experiences and access to tennis courts, a fitness center and nonmotorized water sports equipment. Additional facilities range from a freshwater pool to a business center to a salon with hair, makeup and nail services. Travelers can also enjoy in-room spa treatments, such as massages, facials and body wraps and scrubs. And as of December 2018, this AccorHotels-affiliated property welcomes children year-round. Though recent guests report a satisfactory stay, some say the cuisine served at the resort's three restaurants is pricey, especially given the subpar quality. To save some coin, members of the Le Club AccorHotels rewards program can use points to pay for rooms.

    Set on a white sand beach about 3 miles south of Holetown, Barbados, Crystal Cove is all-inclusive in both its amenities and atmosphere. Catering to travelers of all ages, Crystal Cove entertains youngsters at the Flying Fish Kids Club, while candlelit dinners and side-by-side spa treatments appeal to couples. Crystal Cove offers plenty of aquatic activities, including complimentary water sports, organized beach games and off-site excursions (at an additional cost). After you've worked up an appetite, head to one of Crystal Cove's two sit-down eateries: casual Drifters Beach Bar and Restaurant and upscale Reflections. Previous visitors praised both dining establishments for their delicious food, though some lament the occasionally slow service. When it's time to bed down, retire to your room or suite. Each accommodation features a private patio or balcony, free Wi-Fi access, a minifridge and Caribbean-inspired decor (which recent guests said is a little dated).

    Tamarind offers tailored experiences to a range of travelers. Kids can participate in educational activities through the Flying Fish Kids Club or join their parents on the family-sized daybeds surrounding the three pools. Meanwhile, lovebirds can indulge in a sunset cruise for two or a couples spa treatment. Tamarind also boasts Caribbean-inspired rooms and suites with oversized balconies or patios, flat-screen TVs, minifridges and free Wi-Fi access. Another bonus: Because Tamarind sits on a 750-foot strip of Paynes Bay Beach (on Barbados' western coast), guests have access to plenty of complimentary shoreline activities, including snorkeling, water skiing and paddleboarding. When it's time to eat, travelers can indulge in a beachfront feast at one of the three on-site restaurants. Though recent visitors praised the family-friendly dining atmosphere, many said the dishes were subpar at best. For a change of scenery, hop on a free water taxi and try the cuisine at the other Elegant Hotels properties throughout Barbados.

    Mangobay Barbados blends the all-inclusive conveniences of a large resort with the personalized touch of a small island hideaway. Located in Holetown on Barbados' western coast, Mango Bay sits within walking distance to various shops, restaurants and nightlife venues. At the hotel, you'll find a small beach complete with complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas, as well as free kayaks, Hobie Cat sailboats, snorkel gear and more. When it's time to relax, head to the Elements Spa for a rejuvenating massage or the on-site restaurant for some buffet-style or a la carte eats. Recent patrons gave the eatery mixed reviews; some raved about the cuisine, while others said the selection is a bit limited at times. Previous guests also lamented the accommodations' dated interiors. Every room and suite comes outfitted with bathrobes, beach towels, a cable television and a coffee maker. Keep in mind, Wi-Fi access is only available in the hotel's public areas.

    The old adage "don't judge a book by its cover" rings true at Waves Hotel & Spa: Despite the all-inclusive hotel's roadside location and small size, recent guests were more than impressed with its decor and amenities. Rooms feature South Beach-inspired furnishings and fixtures, plus perks like flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, minifridges, free Wi-Fi access and yoga mats. And because this Elegant Hotels outpost sits on Barbados' western coast in St. James, travelers are never far from a palm-fringed beach. If you're more interested in a sand-free swim, visitors recommend stealing away to one of two pools, including an adults-only, free-form spa pool. Finish off your day with a treatment at the spa and a meal at one of Waves' two restaurants. Although some previous visitors said Seascape's buffet-style dishes were a bit underwhelming, others praised the property's cuisine, especially at Asian-inspired Shiso.

    Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels

    Free WiFi
    Perhaps Treasure Beach's biggest draw is its position on Paynes Bay Beach in Holders Hill, Barbados. This adults-only Elegant Hotels outpost provides guests with a variety of complimentary water sports and free land-based activities, including morning beach walks and food-styling workshops. If you're more interested in relaxing, head to the on-site pool and order drinks and snacks via the pool ambassadors. But the oceanfront setting isn't the only thing travelers applaud. Visitors also praise the suites, which were renovated in 2017 and boast private balconies or patios, free Wi-Fi access, two flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars. (Some of the deluxe suites also include a private plunge pool.) Along with revamped rooms, Treasure Beach features stellar culinary service. The property's eatery, Tapestry Restaurant, serves globally inspired, buffet-style dishes for breakfast, as well as seasonally influenced a la carte items for lunch and dinner. All room rates cover daily breakfast and a chef's dinner, which is hosted inside the resort's wine cellar. Though recent visitors praised the on-site cuisine, they warned that a stay here is expensive.

    The Club, Barbados Resort & Spa is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort (guests must be at least 16 years old to stay here) on Barbados' western coast. Along with the relaxed atmosphere, visitors gush about the on-site restaurants. Two eateries are available, including the Caribbean-inspired Enid's Restaurant and the oceanfront Sunset Restaurant, which serves a mix of international classics and local specialties buffet-style and a la carte. Room rates cover all meals and drinks, plus an array of outdoor activities. At the beach, travelers can borrow water sports equipment like Hobie Cat sailboats, paddleboards and snorkel gear, while the gym and the resort's activity pool host water aerobics, Caribbean dance and other fitness classes. The property also offers complimentary tennis, rum tastings, nature walks and Bajan cooking classes. For those who'd rather relax, there's the on-site spa, with fee-based treatments, such as massages, facials and manicures and pedicures. Or, guests can unwind in their spacious room or suite, which features bright (albeit dated) decor and dark wood accents and comes outfitted with a minifridge, a satellite TV and Wi-Fi access (for a fee).
