My wife and I have just stayed 8 nights at the Royal Pavilions. The location, facilities, gardens and incredible friendliness of the staff at this hotel helped make our first stay in Barbados truly memorable. We intend returning and will certainly stay again at the Royal Pavilions.

So dropped off the car keys and bags at 12.00 room not ready yet (as expected) welcome drink and tour of the facilities- escorted to beds in the beach and checked in whilst we had snacks in the beach bar. Service, standards and food all excellent. So lovely to experience this type of luxurious before going home 🏡

Fantastic rooms overlooking the magnificent ocean!!! Can be a bit isolated. The food selection could be added to include more options. Still the setting is breathtaking & the sunsets amazing!!! The service is very, very friendly!!!

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...

I stay at the Fairmont quite frequently, over a hundred nights per year, so I had high expectations when we arrived at the Fairmont Barbados. I have to say they "hit it out of the park", from the welcome we received, to the personalized service the whole stay. The beach location cannot be beat. The food was fantastic. But it...

I stayed there last year for my brother and his wife's wedding. I didn't think to write a review until coming across this app. Where to start? This is an absolutely majestic property, I can't imagine a nicer location. The layout of the facility and its location adjacent to the ocean is literally from a dream. The staff are incredibly...

My wife and I have just returned from an 11 night stay at this hotel. It is in an excellent location, on a beautiful beach, blue warm seas and very friendly staff. This was not a cheap break and we knew Barbados to be expensive. The current exchange rate of $1.20 makes it VERY expensive. The rooms were nice, but...

We've just returned from a lovely 5 day break at the Fairmont. The location is super, about 30/40 minutes from the airport, right on the beach and not too far from Holetown. The staff are polite and friendly. Our room (one floor up) was bright, clean and had a very comfortable bed. The shower was quite weak though. Our sons...
