Fodor's Review

In 2014, nearly $10 million was spent to redecorate and refurbish every room at the island's legendary British colonial-style hotel. Sky and ocean blues and greens and sunset corals from the natural scene outside its windows, along with a banana leaf and tropical bloom motif, were brought indoors by decorator Carleton Varney. The Colony sits in a particularly convenient location, just one block from Worth Avenue and one block from a pretty beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The pool area has ornamental plants, fountains, furniture, and billowing white panels reminiscent of South Beach's grand art deco hotels. The pool itself is actually shaped like the state of Florida, although the panhandle is severely reduced in size. An attentive staff, youthful yet experienced, is buzzing with competence and a desire to please. Spacious suites have sleeper sofas, and luxurious two-bedroom villas have laundry facilities and full kitchens. Reserve early for the in-house dinner cabaret shows in the popular, jazzy Royal Room, which boasts featured entertainers such as Diahann Carroll and John Pizzarelli. The polo bar is super popular with locals during the early evening hours.
