Service very good, staff wonderfully friendly - I just think that reflecting on the cost v the accommodation that this didn't live up to our 5 star expectations. Don't get me wrong, it is a very very nice hotel with many great features - to name a few individuals, Brian at the beach club is a super super guy. He's... More

Well, where do I start! What a wonderful holiday, sun, sea, great food and a wonderful hotel. The rooms are very spacious, all with a gorgeous sea view, lovely large bathroom with beautiful toiletries. Everything was spotlessly clean, which I am a stickler for! The staff were all so lovely, helpful, friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful, with the... More

My wife and I stayed in November for a week and we have stayed at Sandy Lane, Colony Club and Cobblers Cove and regard this as the best hotel we have stayed in for the beach, the Junior suite beachfront rooms, the service and the food, the evening entertainment was excellent too. No kids was a real bonus, itv was... More

We have just returned from a stay at this hotel and it was amazing, the service was faultless and all the staff did everything possible to make our stay the best possible. Our room had everything we could need with a few we hadn't even thought of. The food was lovely and plentiful, and the afternoon tea was such a... More

Beautiful hotel in a lovely setting with very fine service. Our room was spacious with attractive décor and ample closet space. The very large terrace overlooked the ocean to enjoy magnificent sunsets. Apart from one breakfast, which was less than satisfying, we dined at local restaurants. Evenings at the hotel appeared to be quiet. All in all, a very enjoyable... More

We enjoyed a 10 day stay at the hotel and regard it as 5 star plus. Setting is superb. We had room on second floor with great sea views - and excellent coffee machine! All the staff are welcoming, friendly and efficient. The reception staff are certainly worth a special mention for their efficiency and friendly manner. The concierge also... More

We had the pleasure of staying two nights at the Fairmont in June of our 7 night stay in Barbados.

Following a recommendation, we visited the hotel to sample the afternoon tea which unfortunately turned out to be a non - experience. Whilst the setting was good it was marred by the number of flies, granted it was the end of the wet season so this may have exacerbated this issue. The tea itself is unfortunately not worth a comment... More
