Just back from our Caribbean Winter Holiday where we stayed at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion for the first time. We always check tripadvisor before we book ,the reviews were in the main favourable so we booked . There were just a couple of adverse comments in tripadvisor but these seemed and were proved to be incorrect and a little out... More

The pavilion is set in fantastic location, beautiful beach and a nice stroll along the coastline to holetown. Room was very good and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially the concierge's who were excellent. The only disappointing aspect of our 10 night stay was a rather strange breakfast policy, which gave the impression that the hotel was scrimping... More

Have just returned from a week here. Its a tribute to the hotel that many of the staff have been there over 20 years. We found them all charming, particularly Charlene and Tawandra in Concierge, who could not have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble - a great asset to the place! We did a wonderful garden... More

My bf and I stayed in January. The resort is beautiful and the beach is very nice. We were greeted with a rum drink while we waited for check in. The resort is Adult only, but opens up to children during their low season so make sure you check if you're looking to not see any children around. There was... More

We had a fantastic holiday and stay at The Fairmont over Christmas and New Year. The location on the beach is superb and the rooms comfortable and sea and beach views stunning. The staff on concierge (particularly Charlene) were all friendly and helpful. Do all your hiring of cars (open top jeep is fun and travel around, particularly over to... More

This hotel is right on the beach with all rooms having a wonderful view of the sea. The rooms are very clean, tidy and well equipped, and the beds are lovely. The water sports are very good although there was only one sailing dingy working when we went. The sports staff are probable the best in the hotel as we... More

Was so disappointed!!! Small rooms with an awful humid/moth smell. Looked more like a motel than a hotel. We were supposed to stay 1,5 week but left after the first night. Thank good we found something better at this busy christmas time!!!!

The hotel was comfortable and in a good location. We enjoyed being able to use the catamaran every day. Staff were very friendly and helpful., great beach and good swimming. We were disappointed with the food, which was overpriced, and very average quality. The bonus was the afternoon tea!

Excellent beach front location with ocean facing rooms. The staff were welcoming and the front desk staff very knowledgeable. Comfortable and spacious rooms. Would definitely return to this hotel if back in Barbados.

We enjoyed another wonderful vacation at Royal Pavillion in Nov 2014. The hotel is peaceful and has the perfect beach location. It also has the most dedicated staff. The outstanding ladies at the concierge desk went above and beyond to ensure we had our requested diner reservations. We even sat at the balcony table at The Mews which was recommended... More
