- best hotel beach in Barbados. - grounds are a bit tired. - rooms lovely; clean and spacious. - bar and restaurant 'okay', but the island has amazing places to go so we don't stay at hotel often. - staff great, but classically laid back... - location is ideal, right on the west coast near lots of good restaurants. -...

I went back to the Royal pavilion last month and it's just as amazing as I remember ! I was put on the north side ( behind the bar) ; actually didn't know that even existed but I by far prefer the other side . Either way waking up to the ocean and watching the sun set everyday . Hell... More

We stayed at the Fairmont for a week after viewing a couple hotels. It is beautiful with its gardens and lays right on the beach. During our stay everyone in the staff from gardeners, maids, front desk, waiters and sports were super friendly and created this awesome personal experience. We did stay in the junior suits which was just amazing... More

Wonderful staff that is helpful and friendly. Beautiful beach! We have been going here for several years and love it. Only wish they would bring back the local sugar to the restaurant tables. Miss that yummy stuff with tea.

The location is amazing. Just in front of the beach. However, the service is terrible. It felt every time I requested something, they were doing me a favor. Too expensive for what it offers. Only One restaurant was opened. Extremely expensive. USD40 per person for buffet breakfast. Totally not worth it. Taxis offered from the hotel are 50% more expensive... More

The staff were amazing, the venue was beautiful and the hotel management ensured that everything was perfect. It was a truly wonderful experience and I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday whilst being well looked after... More

We returned again to the Fairmont this year and noticed some changes. Room keys are now touch keys rather than the insert keys which were prone to being wiped by phones, tablets and the ilk. The hotel now offers the excellent Press Reader app for your daily newspapers and magazines. There are moves afoot to introduce a service call system... More

This is a wonderful hotel in a fantastic location right on the beach. The sea views are spectacular and the hotel facilities excellent. The staff are warm and friendly and their service impeccable. Special thanks to Ryan who took us sailing and snorkelling with the local turtles. If you are into yoga, visit the nearby Sunshine Kula studio where Pamela... More

This was our first visit to Barbados and from the moment we arrived at the Royal Pavilion we were extremely well looked after and made to feel very welcome. We had an Ocean View room on the third floor which had a spacious balcony and fabulous views of the beach and sea. The breakfast was extensive with all of the... More
