We would definitely return to the Fairmont The staff was always pleasant and helpful. We asked for a room upgrade and they were very eager to make sure we had what we requested. The concierge was knowledgeable and friendly!

I have stayed at hotels all over the world. The hotel was lovely, on the beach, and the staff team made my family and me feel so special throughout our stay. This is a truly wonderful hotel because of their people. We will book again next year!!!!

The Royal Pavilion is exactly how they made me feel...like Royalty. I traveled alone and stayed 10 days in July at the Royal Pavilion. Needing some desperate R&R from a growing NYC company, Barbados was just the place to de-stress and relax. From my first contact while planning my trip Tawanda Thompson was a godsend. Traveling by myself and crunched... More

We keep coming back so they must be doing something right! Another great stay seeing many of the staff who have become friends over the years but also spending time with friends who also make a point of returning each year at the same time. The hotel and its staff are special and it's like having a second home abroad... More

. Fabulous hotel and location. Can't rate highly enough. But ..... before people start writing, up in arms, re the review of blonde Canadian Christine (below) - she DIDN'T eat dolphin! 'Dolphin' is just a local name for the fish known as Mahi-Mahi ! .

I've stayed at other fairmont hotels so we picked this one in Barbados. It was a fantastic stay. Amazing beach which was our first priority. Beautiful ocean view, clean, comfortable room, friendly staff and good food. Just not sure it's really a luxury hotel. However no complaints.
