Luxurious Serenity with a smile
I’m glad we picked The Fairmont over Sandy Lane. There’s no music piped out onto the beach and mostly just one row of beach chairs so everyone has a great spot! Service was 5-star! The pool & hot tub were also a lovely spot to spend the day! I’d rate it one of the best hotels in the Caribbean!
Our Latest stay
I write this review partly with a heavy heart as we have been coming to the Fairmont Royal Pavillions for the last ten years . The location and the beach is second to none and you would be hard pressed to find anywhere as good in this part of the world or any part of the world for that matter . However the stars of the hotel has started to dim anc little indisciplines have crept into the place and it’s frustrating to see the wonderful long standing staff who pride themselves on customer service suffering due to poor management and what appears slackness in the standards that were such a benchmark for this hotel . We find ourselves questioning for the first time should we go elsewhere and see if we can better value for our money . The resteraunt is very average and it’s tired , It needs an upgrade and somebody thinking ahead instead of just taking the money and hoping we will all simply return . The thinking is that the location and beach will offset everything , but we know that guests are staring to question the price and standard and some have gone next door . As I say I write this with a heavy heart as we love the staff we have grown to think of as friends and we love the area and of course Barbados itself . But the management apathy has started to set in abc unless that attitude changes then we will begins another casualty . Mr and Mrs G Adams BIRMINGHAM England
Such a beautiful location and incredible staff
We stayed here for 10 nights and had the most wonderful holiday. The location is second to none with beautiful views day and night. All of the staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful but a special shout out to Michael O who works on the beach helping guests relax and make the most of their stay. He goes above and beyond everyday and is a kind and helpful person generally. The rooms at the hotel are really comfortable and clean. Hope to be back in the not too distant further. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness 😍
A Perfect Place to Relax
Although I have visited Barbados previously on cruises this was my first stay on the island and I required an excellent standard of hotel with a quiet beachfront setting. This hotel exceeded my requirements. From the moment of arrival the hotel exuded peace and refinement. The magnificently kept grounds are a tribute to the knowledgeable and hard working gardeners - a friendly chat with Adrian was most enjoyable and it is clear that they are passionate about their work. But the same can be said for all of the staff who greet all guests with a good morning/afternoon/evening whenever you see them on site and nothing is too much trouble for them. All rooms enjoy a wonderful sea view - what an experience to wake up to- and nothing is nicer than witnessing the perfect sunset from your balcony with of course a Rum Punch. Rooms are large, air conditioned and have wonderfully equipped bathrooms (the personalised toiletries is a nice touch). One of the best beaches on Barbados is a step away from your room and needs no further description. If you wish to visit anywhere on the island then the very efficient concierge will arrange a driver for you at a moments notice. Alternatively why not stay and spot the families of monkeys in the trees in the grounds- just don't feed them. This really is a wonderfully peaceful location at which my wife and I were made to feel like honoured guests. I would recommend this venue to anyone.
A Magical Christmas in Barbados
We had a most memorable and magical vacation staying at the Royal Pavilion Fairmont. We were welcomed with open arms from the minute we arrived and left with big hugs when we left. So fortunate to have Chantel there for us upon our arrival 2 days early. She was most kind finding us a superb room with every possible comfort. Jason at the reception was so great with us as well. And of course, Michael Sealy. Such a pleasure to deal with them and others of course and share laughter as well. In the dining room, we had the pleasure to meet Nicole, Tyrisha, Brittany, Tiffany and Sabrina and so many others. Always so attentive and full of smiles. The breakfast was wonderful. So much choice. Later in the day, dont miss the flying fish burger. Delicious. Kevin, the bartender was great and very kind. Peter, who took care of i believe delivering special gift baskets among other things, such a wonderful person to chat with. Cynthia who cleaned our room, among other sweet ladies, was very kind to us and ensured we had anything we needed. On the beach side and pool side, the team of guys were great to us, especially Michael and Ryan. Simon Julian in charge of recreation, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Of course we were so happy to be welcomed by the management at the super cocktail party. It was a pleasure to meet Jean Christophe Martinez and his super team. Pauline, the assistant manager and Robert, Food and Beverage Manager. We felt like family and enjoyed their company. We cannot thank them and all their competent and kind staff enough. We would love to mention everyone. It was so special to spend Christmas with them all in Barbados. It will not be forgotten. I would recommend anyone to go and experience such a paradise. The beach is pristine and beautiful beyond words. The grounds magical with the entertaining green monkeys. Nightly entertainment. Tennis. Catamaran and other activities. We loved it all and wish to go back soon. Thank you everyone so very much.Suzanne Jacques and Pierre Girard, from Montreal, Canada.
