    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.

    Fairmont Royal Pavilion
    St. James
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1320 reviewsTripAdvisor (1320)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    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.

    Coral Reef Club

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 520 reviewsTripAdvisor (520)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    Much like its sister property, The Sandpiper, Coral Reef Club sits surrounded by lush foliage on Barbados' western coast (near Holetown). Occupying 12 acres, Coral Reef Club's 88 rooms, cottages, suites and villas all feature furnished balconies or patios, separate showers and tubs, work desks and feather beds. If you don't opt for a cottage or suite with a private plunge pool, Coral Reef Club boasts two tree-lined pools, not to mention complimentary access to water sports equipment like kayaks and snorkel gear. Prefer to stay landlocked? The resort also touts two tennis courts, a fitness center and a set of garden pathways that snake throughout the bougainvillea-shaded grounds. Navigate the labyrinth on your own, or sign up for a complimentary garden tour, which are available every Wednesday. If a stroll through the foliage isn't relaxing enough for you, venture to the spa for a massage or some meditation. Coral Reef Club also offers alfresco dining at its restaurant, which recent guests enjoyed despite their meals' high prices. To offset this added expense, Small Luxury Hotels of the World patrons with INVITED loyalty program memberships can use accrued reward night vouchers to pay for rooms.

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    Positioned on the northwestern edge of Barbados by Godings Bay, Cobblers Cove is an intimate retreat that touts just 40 suites. Each accommodation includes a private balcony or terrace with garden or ocean views, a sitting room and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. Plus, all suites offer twin or king-sized beds, bathrobes and slippers, minibars and free Wi-Fi access. Previous visitors raved about the gorgeous, roomy lodgings, though some warned that the nightly rates are expensive. But Cobblers Cove redeems itself with complimentary inclusions, such as swimming with turtles outings, tennis lessons and nonmotorized water sports equipment rentals. After working up an appetite, head to the Camelot Restaurant for fresh seafood. Past diners praised the eatery's impeccable service and delectable cuisine. Cap off your day with a relaxing treatment at the Sea Moon Spa. Cobblers Cove is the only Relais & Châteaux property in Barbados; if you're a Club 5C member, you can take advantage of exclusive perks during your stay.

    The Sandpiper
    St. James
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 338 reviewsTripAdvisor (338)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    At The Sandpiper, it's all about the gardens. Nestled in Holetown, Barbados, this small, family-owned and -operated hotel receives consistent praise from guests for its well-manicured foliage. The hotel even houses three Tree Top Suites (lodgings surrounded by palm leaves but not actually suspended in the trees), which include luxurious amenities like terraces, open sun decks and private plunge pools. If you don't want to splurge, opt for a Garden View Room. Each includes a patio or balcony that overlooks the hotel's signature greenery. Extending its well-groomed vegetation to the beach, The Sandpiper boasts a shaded wooden dock that overlooks the shoreline. When you're not lounging dockside, take a dip, set out on a Hobie Cat sailboat or kayak (equipment rental is complimentary) or learn how to scuba dive at The Sandpiper's sister property, Coral Reef Club. Given that Coral Reef Club sits within walking distance, the two properties also share a spa. Just make sure you head back to The Sandpiper for dinner – guests highly recommend sampling The Restaurant's Caribbean-inspired dishes. But remember, the eatery's menu is limited, so travelers with dietary restrictions, such as vegans, may want to consider dining elsewhere. Also keep in mind: Members of INVITED, the Small Luxury Hotels of the World rewards program, can cash in accrued reward night vouchers for rooms here.

    Ocean Two Resort & Residences
    St. Lawrence Gap
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2427 reviewsTripAdvisor (2427)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    Situated on Barbados' southern coast in the St. Lawrence Gap area of Christ Church, Ocean Two provides all the amenities of a four-star resort without isolating travelers from island culture. Recent guests said they appreciated being able to leave the resort grounds and immediately interact with local residents. Along with the property's proximity to St. Lawrence Gap's amenities, Ocean Two overlooks a secluded bay where land-lubbers can relax along the sand while seafarers swim, snorkel or scuba dive. If you prefer fresh water over salt water, Ocean Two boasts a 150-foot pool and sun deck. After soaking up the rays, recharge with an in-room spa treatment or at the on-site eatery; Taste Restaurant serves international eats with a Caribbean flair. When it's time to turn in, rooms and suites feature Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, rainfall showers and private balconies with partial or full ocean views. Previous visitors recommend splurging on a spacious one-bedroom oceanfront suite, which offers a fully equipped kitchen and a separate sitting area. Also consider requesting a room away from the bars, since some past travelers said noise from the venues can be heard inside the accommodations.

    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 SoCo Hotel
    Hastings
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 888 reviewsTripAdvisor (888)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    If you're searching for an all-inclusive experience that is better suited for couples, then the adults-only SoCo Hotel in Barbados is your safe haven. Couples describe this southern Barbados hotel as relaxing and romantic, with its comfortable accommodations and picturesque location right on the beach. The property's 24 rooms are bright and modern in design, decorated in a predominately white color palette and outfitted with white leather headboards, couches and bedside tables. Flat-screen TVs with DVD players, coffee makers and free wireless internet access are available for those looking to stay connected. But since each room is equipped with a private balcony facing the ocean, who needs technology? The property's cuisine – which is part of the all-inclusive rate, along with unlimited beverages at the beach bar – also earns rave reviews from guests. Another standout feature for visitors is the staff. Many say the hotel's employees take care of every guest, adding that no task is too small or too big. However, some report minor inconveniences, such as malfunctioning room safes and worn beach lounge chairs.

    Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels
    Paynes Bay
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 60 reviewsTripAdvisor (60)
    Free Parking
    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.
