This is a great place for a chilled weeks stay. We were at the end of the season so it wasn't at all crowded, the staff were all very friendly, the food was well presented and cooked and there was always plenty of choice (I am vegetarian and had no issues despite my inital concern about the lack of protein sources and just getting vegetables and rice all week - there was plenty of variety including a superb local blue cheese) Special mention to Gillian who was very professional when we arrived and resolved the mess Booking.com had made of the booking calmly and without a fuss and the seafront table and fizz at dinner on the first evening were very much appreciated. Richard was also very helpful with all our luggage. We had a blast with the staff who all seemed to enjoy working there. The seafront room was excellent and the maintenance team has to be the most efficient I have ever experienced. Two issues were resolved while we were out of the room in less than an hour both times - including fixing/replacing a broken tap - well impressive! I also woke up with a debilitating bout of Chronic Labrynthitis the morning we were due to fly home and a spare room was found for me after we checked out and I was looked after very well apparently although I really don't have much recollection of what was going on - so a very big thank you to everyone who helped me out that day including a couple of lovely guests sitting in the foyer. Swimming at the front of the hotel was easier than it looked so don't be daunted by the waves, it's quite safe (except on the occasional stormy day when they have to fly the red flag). Other beaches are within an easy stroll so the lack of beach wasn't an issue for us although it might be if you like to stroll straight out onto a beach from a hotel. We do like to try different hotels and islands but would happliy return here for a week as part of a two centre holiday.More
Club Barbados (The good & bad)
Where do I start? First of all the staff was very friendly. Always speaking and trying to make you as comfortable as possible. This was our first time visiting an all-inclusive property. The food was o.k. The breakfast omelets were the best. Lunch buffet was plentiful. Dinner was a buffet when we first arrived then switched to a menu for the remaining days we were there. I really preferred ordering from the menu. The restaurant upstairs didn't seem any better than the more casual one. With that said...a lot of food for the money. You never will be hungry! I will tell you I witnessed someone licking one of the buffet spoons and then placing it back down for others to use. I thought I was seeing things! The drinks were plentiful. But really not a lot of top shelf liquor. And if you wanted one you must request it. The frozen cocktails were always good but you can only drink so many of those. We upgraded our room to an ocean view which was nice. No negatives with the room at all. The wifi is a bit archaic. To be able to use it you have to be in one of the common areas. We did find that we could go walk out the back of our room and get it. We found that annoying. For those of you who like to take long walks on the beach forget it. Even though we knew we couldn't put our toes in the water behind our room we thought we could walk just a bit down the way to do that. We never found that. We are avid walkers and did not find Barbados very walking friendly. So we gave up and just ate and drank...lol! We did a couple of tours with Amir who is the tour guy for the resort. Our first tour was a tour around the Island. What delightful tour it was! We were the only ones on the tour and it was a lot of fun. Great sights on the other side and Amir was most informative about the Island. One of the highlights of our trip. Would highly recommend this tour. Then the next day we went on the Cave tour with Amir. It was a rainy day so it could have been better weather wise. The cave is a sight to see. Beautiful and then we visited Orchid World. Beautiful flowers and gardens. Made for a nice morning on a rainy day. We did the cooking class the resort offers and had a nice time doing that. Chef Ruby was very nice and fun! I must warn those who are over 6'2 or so to watch your head as walking around on the property. My husband came home with bruises and gashes on the top of his head from bolts that hang down from the ceilings everywhere. Even though he knew they were there at times sometime you just forget...and no he wasn't drinking at those times. I saw him fall to the ground from the hard hit he took from the low hanging ceilings with bolts. They really need to put up some padding or something to help with that or maybe a warning of some sort. The entertainment at night was nice. Have to say everyone seemed to be very talented. We went to the Piano Bar a couple of times and had a really nice time. Found it to be the late night crowd still looking to have some fun. All in all..we had an o.k. time but we will not be back to The Club or Barbados. Just not what we were looking for in a "beach vacation." Been to Aruba three other times and always had a much better experience. We were just looking to try something different.More
Club Barbados (Tranquility at it's Best)
My wife and I returned after 35 years and it is on the Beach with all water sports available. Pro's. Location, Staff and pristine beaches. Con's. Mandatory meal plan. Very mediocre and repetitive. Omelettes for breakfast were superb. Lamb chops for dinner super. That's where my compliments end. Chicken, seafood, beef, were served daily and were not edible. Same buffet mush everyday for lunch. Considering mandatory meal plan, rip off to the max. Open bar fully stocked with wonderful bartenders. Rooms lacked water 2 out of 7 days. Ridiculously handled by lack of respectful managers. The owner needs to pay attention to required needed upgrades and managers. Will not return. Too bad because Bajan folks are most engaging, sweet and kind.More

Just keeps on getting better
Firstly I must confess to having visited this Hotel 13 times, but it really does keep on getting better, nothing major but just lots of little improvements and tweaks that make the difference and there are always some more planned. The hotels greatest asset is without doubt its staff, I can't possibly name any of them as I am bound to forget someone and I can't let that happen, what I can do though is tell you that the staff here are the nicest, kindest most generous people you will ever meet, it's such a pleasure to walk around or sit by the pool and without exception every member of staff you see will say Hello or good morning. On this occasion I do have to say a particular thank you to two of the Managers at the Club. My wife and I were caught up in the BA debacle on 27th May, we were due to check out and fly home that day. If it were not for Troy on the Saturday and Gillian on the Sunday we may well still be stranded in Barbados. On second thoughts ........More

My Most Restful Vacation - Ever!
This is an excellent all-inclusive tropical resort, the best I've experienced over the past thirty years traveling in the Carribean, Hawaii, and Mexico. In fact, The Club (Almond Beach Club) has become my "second" home -- this is my 9th vacation at The Club, always for 10 - 14 days vacationing with one-three women friends. (It's a very long trip from our West Coast of Canada homes, plus overnight stay in Toronto each way, and there's lots of much close vacation spots. We all agree: The Club is deeply worth our effort and financial investment!!) Barbados is a beautiful Island, white sandy beaches around the entire Island (Barbados beaches are all public, just like in Canada), nice warm ocean waters from the Gulf Stream coming back up from the Equator, and interesting coral reefs within a few steps no matter where you're staying. Two vacation tips: 1) the West Coast is the quieter/more restful side of Barbados and 2) vacationing all-inclusive is absolutely essential on Barbados because of how expensive food/drink otherwise would be for you. The Club (formerly Almond Beach Club) is located on one of the nicest areas of the West Coast. It's beautiful, small/intimate, adults-only, thoroughly-comfortable and relaxing all-inclusive Ocean-side resort. All-inclusive at The Club means: great food and cool drinks available nearly the entire day, bathtub warm ocean and warm sandy beaches, coral reefs and colourful fishes and a wide range of water activities right at your doorstep, four pools within beautiful gardens, friendly gentle Bajans staff everywhere, snorkles/ fins and watercraft, all gratuities, and nightly live Bajan entertainment. (Heather the main breakfast chef at The Club even won the best ambassador Award last year, for ALL of the Carribean Islands!!) ESSENTIAL to a truely "all-inclusive" resort is the live local evening entertainment, and I (and many other guests) were especially impressed this spring -- my deepest thanks thanks to the Sophia the entertainment director!!:) The evening entertainment is frankly "The BIG Plus" that brings me back -- and more frequently. I LOVE dancing improv and THIS May 2017 The Club has dramatically enhanced its evening entertainment program!! (I've most-recently vacationed at The Club with three friends last May 2016 and with another friend in November 2016 for Barbados' 50th Independence Day.) We had three hours of live Bajan dance bands EVERY evening of our two-week stay -- the Project, Aura, and Sapphire bands were fantastic, and the Rhapzody and the Cyclones were very good playing albeit older tunes. Plus, new this spring, every second Sunday evening is Dancing With The Stars, a great evening to learn/ practice several dances with three Bajan professional dance teachers!! (And, Violinist Shawn Holder was a wonderful surprise for our Tuesday early dinner, esp. when he perfectly performed several well-known classics.) This was, indeed, my most restful vacation -- ever!More
