Staff all lovely, hotel perfect, couldn't fault breakfast or lunch. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect family holiday (though I do hate people putting towels on sunbeds and either not sitting on them for... More

The Royal Pavilion is situated on a lovely beach washed by the warm waters of the west coast Caribbean Sea. A lot of the rooms have recently been refurbished. We had a beachfront junior suite ground floor with a large doors opening on to a private terrace directly in front of the beach. The room was lovely with all required... More

Our room (245) was fantastic and had clearly been refurbished reasonably recently and in fact the whole site was in good shape. The main restaurant is amazingly grand with a glorious position overlooking the beach and sea with an amazing feel about it. The fact of the matter, however, was that the food was decidedly average and hugely over-priced which... More

We arrived just after New Year, like most people we couldn't fault the staff. however the whole resort needs a facelift, there is peeling paint outside on all of the buildings, the towels round the pool were going threadbare and the lift to our room, when it was working, was a bone shaker, with the emergency phone falling of the...

Barbados is an amazing island. I have been going there for many years. I went there alone, as a single female; been there many times while married; always enjoy this place; feel safe; enjoy the exquisite beach of St. James. Like the "suites" on first floor where one may easily walk from room directly to that crystal clear sea. Staff... More

The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is a fabulous place to stay on the wonderful Island of Barbados. The beach is ten out of ten and we swam in the sea at least twice a day during our holiday. You can swim with the resident Turtles right from the beach. We also really enjoyed the pool which was really relaxing and the... More
