We had a fabulous family mini summer vacation at the Colony Hotel. Best of all it is right across the beach so we didn’t have to worry about walking long distance with our daughter. The service was superb… Harold took care of all our needs and requests. Do recommend 100 % BBQ

This was the worst hotel stay of my life. When we opened the door to the hotel room , the room was humid and stuffy. The bathroom had gnats flying all around and dead ones splastered on the ceiling of the bathroom. We were exhausted so we didn't bother speaking to the staff. The next day, we asked Harold to...

Only a straight 5 miute walk to an awsome beach, awsome restaurants and stores a short walk away, You can't beat the hotels restaurant for breakfast $3.95, lunch $8.95...

To call the Colony Hotel a 3-star hotel is a joke! When we arrived we had to wait for half an hour before we could get our room. The walls, floors, dados, windows, carpets were all worn-out, the doors didn't close properly, the linen was dirty, we didn't get the room cleaned while we were there, the internet didn't work,...
