What to expect

We just use the beach club at the Fairmont as we stay away from the beach. The welcome has always been very warm and friendly especially from Ryan on the sand. Our only criticism is that the bar food and drink used to be so nice to have during our visits. However, more recently the costs have gone up and made this sadly unaffordable.
Like Stepping Back In Time
My husband and I literally walked into this hotel without a reservation after we planned a last minute holiday over the Fourth of July. From the welcome we received, you’d never know they hadn’t been expecting us. Chantal was more than ready to help us get promptly situated in our beautiful room. The hotel has an elegant vibe that isn’t at all stuffy. It’s not like other newer hotels that are hip but somehow seem to be trying a bit too much. The ambiance definitely makes guests feel relaxed and welcomed. The rooms are perfect and have everything you could ever need. It’s great that every room faces the beach, which is literally just steps away from any room. My favorite aspect of this hotel was the personal feel of it. All the staff members made an effort to know you very quickly and greet you by name. This level of personal service seems increasingly rare. Any issue was addressed by a staff member in under ten minutes. I’ve stayed in quite a lot of hotels, so I feel confident in saying Michael is one the best hotel managers I’ve come across. The fact most of the staff stay for decades also speaks to how much pride is taken at the Fairmont. It was nice how the hotel hosted various themed dinner nights plus a cocktail party for guests on our first night. I really enjoyed late night drinks in the bar. Gregory and St Clair were so kind in entertaining all my questions about Bajan food, rum and local music. If you go to Barbados, you can’t go wrong if you book the Fairmont.
Luxury in Paradise
This beautiful hotel is set on an amazing beach, and every room has a full beach view, and you can see fabulous sunsets from every balcony. You do feel that you have checked into paradise. Service is excellent, and if you are fortunate to have a room with butler service, you won’t be disappointed, as it is an unobtrusive, or as full on as you want, you choose exactly what you need, and they iron as well. If you can drag yourself from the perfect beach and sun loungers, there is a good sized pool, well maintained gardens, 2 restaurants and a bar. The restaurants serve a mixture of cuisines, but do try the local fish, and the West Indian Buffet, a perfect opportunity to experience new flavours. You won’t be disappointed. The rooms are very well appointed with everything you could need, and the ones on the beach level, are perfect, as you can get up from your bed, and go straight out to the beach, and swim, or sit and drink tea watching the sun rising. Not to be missed, everything is quiet, and you feel as if you are in your own perfect world. The beach never feels crowded, even if as when we were there the hotel is almost full, it never feels busy, and you can spend your day lazing in the sun, or use the complementary water sports, and snorkel. There is a huge variety of amazing fish literally meters from your room, so a snorkelers paradise. Overall, this is a fabulous place to have a luxury holiday. Peaceful, but still plenty to do, not busy, but still good choice of food, and a fun bar area, and most importantly one of the best beaches I have ever had the luck to experience. All this, and a luxury and friendly hotel to stay at, what more could we possibly want? To go back…
What a great location
This was the first vacation (and we have had many) where we just enjoyed the hotel and beach. We were in the water many times throughout the day including snorkelling and were able to secure our beach chairs at all times if the day. The Texas barbecue was excellent. We will likely go back.
We just came back , was there for a wedding. From friends staying in other places , this was the best beach ! Loved Ryan at the water sports. He was the best, so smart, friendly and fun . Michael on the beach was great too, always remembering conversations. Food just ok. Loved Lone star and cliff for dinner.
