We found out about flyboarding here as well as having our own little patch of beach to swim with turtles and drink rum punch. The staff were courteous even when we left half of our belongings behind. When we wanted peace and quiet we could swim out to the raft and when we wanted to go out on the jet... More

We have returned for the past 4 years to Barbados and it only gets better. This Hotel has all the service of a 5 star hotel without the " pomp and ceremony " of others. Great beach which is what the Caribbean is all about , great friendly efficient staff. Excellent casual dining and a location which allows you to... More

My partner and I have just stayed inside this beautiful hotel for 12 nights and truly pleased with the service received. Our holiday got off to a slow start, but within a couple of days the service improved and remained spot on. I would stay here again in near future.

My wife and I have been coming to this hotel for 7 years. It is our favourite place to get away from the UK winter. The hotel is very comfortable and it has the best beach of all the hotels on this stretch of coastline (Sandy Lane included)! The staff are fantastic! Many of them have been here for years... More

As regular visitors to Barbados, we have always searched for a hotel where we could comfortably return time after time. Although we have enjoyed all of the ones so far encountered, none have really fitted our criteria. We have often seen the Pavilion from the sea but dismissed it . We were wrong. Our criteria: -a good beach for bathing... More

The Royal Pavilion is the place to stay for a totally relaxing break. It does not make full use of its potential though.... The bar and restaurant are a bit dull - but maybe that is because practically all the clientele seem to be over the age of 60... The Palm Restaurant is hardly ever open and if it is... More

From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, the staff is attentive to your every wish and need. The location of the Fairmount is perfect. The rooms are all oceanfront and literally right on the beach. The on site restaurants have excellent quality. This is the way a five star resort should be run.
