Food - a little samey if your stay is longer than a week, the Ribs were to die for - loved the breakfast - wonderful selection of fresh fruit.. Beach -... More

This was our second time staying at the Royal Pavilion, and I must say it was just as good as the first time.

We have recently returned from an 8 night stay at the fantastic Fairmont Royal Pavilion. Myself, my husband & our 2.5 year old daughter stayed in a beach front suite and had a brilliant stay. I could write so many positive things about this hotel but will try to keep it reasonably brief!!! It was relaxing & convenient to have... More

This is our second visit to the Fairmont and we were certainly glad we made the choice to return. The hotel is on a beautiful beach and rooms are lovely, particularly on the upper floors as the views are gorgeous and a most welcome respite on a hot sunny day. The icing on the cake is the staff though, friendly... More

This is our 2nd visit to the Fairmont, however this time we have a tiny human who is nearly 2. The hotel itself is located on a fantastic beach on the west coast. Simply step out of your room and you’re on the warm golden sand and into the stunning turquoise bajan sea. Put your snorkeling gear on and swim... More

So much to say, such little space. From the moment we arrived we were treated like film stars. It was evident from the outset that exceptional customer service is of paramount importance at The Fairmont. The web site does not do this hotel justice. It's set on the most beautiful, well maintained beach. Every room has a view of the... More

First time to Barbados, and after reading numerous reviews decided to choose the Fairmont for our mid year beach vacation. We were slightly concerned about visiting at the start of Barbados’ rainy season, and having travelled extensively within Asia our expectations of five star hotels were extremely high. The weather during our stay was generally outstanding, a little overcast at... More
