Just stayed for 12 nights at this lovely hotel. We had a great time. Hotel is located perfectly on a great beach on the west coast within easy reach of many top restaurants. One of the best lone star is a couple of hundred yards walk along the beach. Rooms are great as is the swi

Stayed in a suite at the hotel for 8 nights. The newly refurbished suite was beautiful and having its own patio area and being on the beach was wonderful. The added benefits of the suite made the holiday feel very luxurious - Butler service, complimentary afternoon tea and even

I was so excited to stay at the fairmont when I booked my vacation. It had such great reviews and was rated #1 hotel in Barbados on Trip Advisor. HOWEVER that was a lie, the service, and the food were very below average. Considering every meal is about $50 Canadian I expected mor

Hi! What water sports are available at or near the hotel? I’m interested in jet-skiing, surfing, SUP, etc.
They have a couple of small catamarans (like a Hobie). At first you go out with staff and then you can take out on your own if you are safe. They will arrange jet skis. They contact one of the many jet ski locals. They do a little snorkeling trip down the beach - mostly beginners. They have SUPs and kayaks on site. Surfing is on the other side of the island (Atlantic side). The concierge desk is very helpful in arranging activities such as lunch/snorkel cruises and might help arrange surfing. Hope this helps!

My husband and I will be arriving next Sunday. Are the electrical outlets different from those in the US? Do I need to bring a electrical converter or adapter to use my hair dryer or hair straightener? What voltage does the pavilion use? Thanks, Rhona
As mentioned the electricity and plugs are the same as the U.S. and there is a hair dryer in the room. The best part of Barbados is that you can go out and enjoy yourself. We often take the local bus. All the restaurants mentioned are excellent and I would like to add there is The Cliff and The Cliff Beach Club restaurant, which we prefer though you cant beat the Cliffs "drama". Hope you have a great visit to our favourite island.

Hi, I am looking at this property for a stay with my family of 4. Was there a lot of families when you stayed? I think the room rates are outrageously high as it is $2,400 a night to a king and pull out bed. Is this property that magnificent that warrants this kind of rate for a regular room? I can book a full suite at the Ritz in the Cayman Islands for this rate....what makes this place so special? Thanks!
They have raised prices, the place is fab but.....!

My husband and I are considering a stay at your hotel in October. We will be taking an overnight flight from JFK, New York, USA . Therefore we will be arriving at the airport in Barbados around 5:00 am Sunday morning. Does the hotel offer a transportation service.? Also, is it possible to get an early check in or to store our luggage until our room is available? Thanks, Rhona
Luxury Car Must be reserved at least 48 hours in advance Rates: approximately $210 BDS ($105 USD) one-way between hotel and airport or $300 BDS ($150 USD) round trip For 4 or more travelers a luxury van can be arranged at an additional cost. Just call the hotel . Good luck .

We are looking at a holiday at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion on a B & B basis. Please could anyone tell me how much we could expect to pay for an evening meal either at the hotel or nearby?
Meals at hotel will range from approximately $50 Bbds to $200 Bbds. Eating in main dining room (open a few nights per week) will be at high end while Taboras Restaurant will be less. Many very nice restaurants within easy cab ride from Royal Pavillion. A few restaurants a short walk down beach but have not eaten there in our multiple visits to island so can’t comment on those restaurants.
