Everything here was wonderful, but especially the staff with a special mention for Ryan at the water sports.The room was great with a comfortable bed, great bathroom and exceptional view. Lovely beach and great breakfast options. We only ate dinner here once and found very little choice for vegetarians like me. So would recommend dining out in the amazingly good... More

The positives- Location fantastic on a great stretch of beach within a 10-15 minute walk from Holetown. Great gardens surrounding the hotel. FANTASTIC staff.... Every single one was friendly, smiley and helpful. A particular mention for Charlene though- she went the extra mile and really looked after us and made us feel right at home...

This hotel was a truly fantastic experience. Everything exceeded our expectations from the pick up at the airport until we left. The view from our room was simply breathtaking. The staff was extremely polite and so accommodating. The hotel bar and restaurants were also fantastic. There was live music nightly,yet the resort was still quiet and serene. The beach club...

Second visit as a family group of 6 adults and two children. Astonished and delighted that staff genuinely remembered us from 2 years previously. Every aspect excellent. Small things add up to a memorable experience such as the cold towel and planter's punch on arrival to the Manager's drinks reception, followed by gala dinner and the ability to arrange to... More

Just back from Barbados having stayed for the first part of our holiday in the Fairmont Royal Pavilion. This hotel is a low rise of two blocks with three floors in each block.

We left The Fairmont one hour ago, and in its simplest, we had the most brilliant of times. Staff were an absolute credit to the hotel, and nothing was too much trouble.

Clean resort with calm beach, excellent for a 2-5 night get away. Service is excellent and new owners are making improvements. Excellent restaurant options near by. Recommend premium room lower upgrade, with larger room + resort representative greats you at the airport and expedites you through customs - NO WAIT!
