We initially wanted to stay at another hotel but they made a mistake with our reservations, so we ended up at the Fairmont instead. Good things first, we were offered an upgrade to a suite but as I was traveling with a friend, we did not want to give up our 2 beds for one king and one sofa in...

Returning from a second stay at the Fairmont and what a wonderful break it has been. Concierge, reception, room attendants, restaurants from a staff and service perspective all 5 star. Nothing too much trouble whether it was Valentine's Day and a Cabana on the beach or a table for 2 at short notice in a restaurant. We stayed half board...

I loved this hotel. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The room was very large, with plenty of space to move around. The bathroom was set up nicely. The toilet and shower/tub were all partitioned, so two or more people can use at one time. The pool was very nice. Even the pool changing area was incredible to...
