Ok let me start by saying this was our first trip to the Caribbean and what a friendly nation Barbados is - the staff at the hotel, the people you meet were, without exception incredibly polite, warm and friendly. The room Rooms are lovely (they are smaller than they appear in the hotel photos) but really well appointed and very... More

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel. There were 5 of us this time, me and my wife, 2 sons aged 20 and 16 and our godson aged 21. We were met at reception with cold towels to freshen up and our choice of welcome drink. We were then personally shown to our rooms on the 2nd floor in... More

I would strongly recommend this Hotel for a great experience but make sure you have your itinerary and check it before you travel. I ended up paying for 6 breakfasts for 6 people for 13 days when it was defiantly book by never received my confirmation email.

The rooms, restaurants, beach and gardens are all wonderful, but it's the staff that make this place really special. Without fail we felt a genuine kindness from all who we encountered, the gardeners and cleaners, as well as front of house.

Have just returned from my 3rd stay at the Fairmont. Once again, we had a wonderful stay made special by the attentive and warm staff. As always, the hotel was full of return guests which speaks volumes. The location is truly enviable on one of the best beaches in the west coast. It has a very long stretch of beach... More

When we arrived we were initially impressed. But then we quickly found out that our room wasn't ready as promised, ice machine didn't work, remote control for tv not working, etc. When we called to complain, either no response or waiting four hours for a response. The food is quite questionable. Had to wait 25 minutes for a menu. Really???... More

Even before we arrived the staff at the Fairmont had started to take care of us, we had emailed in advance asking about transfers to and from the airport. The Concierge contacted us promptly giving us details about price etc. We were driven to and from the airport in a smart, clean large BMW saloon with professional and courteous drivers.... More

My partner and me chose this hotel for a short stay and had a great time. Very friendly and accommodating staff; also very personal that actually remembered a day after what we talked about the day before. Very good location on the beach and comfortable rooms with great view. Good breakfast. Can be pricey but you get what you pay... More

We had a hard time picking a hotel for our Barbados vacation. After reading many reviews on TA we decided to go with Fairmont, and did not regret it. Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted warmly and check in was a breeze. We had 2 connecting rooms on the second level. The rooms were clean and roomy, despite... More
