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...

Just returned from 3 weeks in Barbados staying at Sugar Hill with membership at the Fairmont Royal Pavillion Beach Club. Having holidayed in Barbados 20 times previously we obviously love the island, it's people and have generally received excellent customer service wherever we have stayed. However this year the membership of the beach club and the level of customer service...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the wonderful Fairmont Royal Pavilion, myself, my husband and our 10 year old son. We were allocated a room on the 3rd (top floor), every single room overlooks the sea with the best view of the sunset. Spacious considering there were 3 of us, however the ground floor junior suites...

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. Don’t get me wrong the Royal Pavilion isn't the glitziest or most impressive looking hotels but that is...

West coast Barbados. Need I say more. Yes this restaurant is expensive but reassuringly so. Sometimes you should treat yourself to the best and you will not be disappointed here. The hotel offers spectacular views with friendly staff and good amenities. The room service is efficient and the breakfast on point. It's also in a convenient location so should you...

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...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week in March. I agree with all the positive reviews in terms of the excellent staff, stunning beach, brilliant position, good food etc. However what I haven't seen much of is a call out for the excellence of the Fairmont brand.

Once you get over the sticker shock (this is Barbados afterall), you will appreciate the boutique hotel feel and amazing service. The hotel is in a lovely location, beautiful beach, close to Holetown. Lovely grounds, beach etc. Well kept tennis courts. Restaurant is good What gives this hotel 5 stars is a combination of 'setting' and outstanding service. Very accommodating...
