Concierge Charlene greeted us warmly when we arrived, and provided the very best service during our entire stay, arranging everything from island tours to dinner reservations with the utmost efficiency and grace....

Everything about the Fairmont is welcoming.The rooms are all beach side,generously proportioned and well equipped. The bar and restaurant area are perhaps a little dated and ready for some refurbishment as is the Beach Club. However none of this detracted from a lovely stay. The staff were brilliant with a particular mention to Ryan on the beach and Simon around...

This hotel is tucked away in a little jungle like setting. So peaceful and quiet...you can actually see little monkeys on the property jumping tree to tree. The staff on this property is just absolutely AMAZING. Patricia is beyond accommodating. She truly took the extra step to make sure we had an exquisite experience. We have never experienced such genuine...

We went to the Fairmont Royal Pavilion for a family holiday with our eleven-year-old son and we had a fantastic time. We loved everything about this hotel, it’s special and I say this having stayed at some of the world’s top hotels.

We absolutely loved the island of Barbados and were amazed with the level of service and hospitality of the Fairmont Hotel. The concierge, Charlene, was excellent. She recommended excellent restaurants and helped organize activities on the island. The kids club was also very fun. They had a movie night, painting activities, and dance classes for the kids. All of these...
