We chose Barbados and the Fairmont for our first trip to the Carribean after a lot of research and we could not have chosen better. Both the island and the hotel exceeded our expectations and what was to have been a one-off 'trip of a lifetime' looks like becoming a regular destination. After unpacking we were stolling round the gardens...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 December 2016 via mobile

Spent a beautiful ten days at this stunning hotel. Genuine warmth from all the staff, remember you by name and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are large and well stocked with toiletries, serviced twice a day and there is also a turn down service. Breakfast is served buffet style with a view of the ocean. Plenty of choices and...

Kerry rocks the bar and does an amazing job. We walked the beach from Folkstone just to eat their coconut shrimp! They serve it with a tangy sauce. A perfect side salad with very elegantly detailed content, showing the care of the kitchen. This is NOT typical BEACH food. Ergo, our returning for the last THREE years in a row....

I love the fairmont as staff are always attentive and friendly - particularly the wait staff in the restaurant. Pool and spa are lovely and great place to relax. Dessert from the restaurant is exquisite. Great location, Porters is really lovely, close to Holetown too.

This is the most amazing location for an island vacation. We weren't quite sure if the photos were somehow misleading, with the hotel appearing to be right on the waterfront. We were prepared for it to be "slightly different" in reality. However, both buildings (and there are only 2, other than for a single villa) ARE "right there". We understand...
