« Fabulous except for food in Taboras and being overrun with birds soiling everything including guests »

As always we enjoy staying at RP we have already booked 2 more visits, it was slightly spoiled by Breakfast being moved to Taboras while building work being carried out in Palm Terrace, the Birds are a major problem as well as a health hazard in my opinion. There were several power outages, which were Island wide, there are usually power outages on every trip but this time there were more and for longer periods. This would not be a problem if the Hotel invested in an emergency generator as other locations on the Island have done. There appears to be a major power generation problem on the island with no long term fix imminent an emergency generator would solve this an allow guest to better enjoy their stay rather than wait for the lights to go out!

« Beautiful location, expensive in terms of value for money »

Relaxing after two weeks at sea. Rooms, particularly on ground level spectacular with waterfront, beach access. Food and restaurant average.

« Disappointing »

The location and rooms are about the only thing going for the hotel. The quality of food is simply abysmal. You are using the cheapest possible products whether it's bread, sausages or yogurts or fruit juice. I couldn't tell you what the manager looked like as I never saw him or her. The majority (but not all) Staff at the restaurant were disengaged and the barmen really couldn't be bothered. When we checked out there was no facility available other than a room 2 hours before we were due to transfer. We showered and washed our hair by the pool and then changed in the toilet because there was no other facility. We then waited in the boutique as that was the only "public area" with air conditioning. When we left, no one helped us with our bags and no one from management could be bothered to say good-bye and thank us for our stay. And you have no generator so the power cuts weren't great.

A very enjoyable and comfortable few days.

« Great location, but doesn't make up for the tired hotel, poor food and lack of service »

Really dissappointing. We got married in the hotel 11 years ago and it feels like the hotel hasn't changed in any shape or form since. The building(s) look and feel tired, the food was terrible quality and lacked presentation and although the staff were lovely, it felt very understaffed in order to deliver 5 Star service. We come to Barbados once or twice a year and have been since 2008 therefore stayed at a number of places on the west coast. For the price, Fairmont is extremely expensive if i compare the quality of food and service, compared to somewhere like the Coral Reef Club or Sandpiper (500 yards down the road). We paid for half board and ended up eating out every night with the exception of one. The food presented for room service on the day of arrival was abysmal. Neither mains had any form of garnish on the plate, so was simply steak and chips and fish and chips, no attempt to present the food in an appetising manor. The steak was over cooked and bland. For the night we did eat in the hotel, i was asked by the chef why i hadn't eaten the tagliatelle carbonara. Carbonara doesn't use cream or onions and used pancetta not bacon, finally the use of nutmeg is correct, but not in the excessive quantities used (all i could taste was a very strong over powering flavour of nutmeg). The response was that my understanding of a carbonara was like a true italian carbonara; the fairmonts "version" as i was told, was more like an alfredo, although alfredo was a seperate dish on the menu so not sure how you would differ or why you would call something carbonara on the menu if it wasn't carbonara. The gesture to remove the dish for the bill was correct if we weren't on half board. Breakfast - Some mornings we had to wait an extended period to be seated as no staff was at the desk. We assumed was just a buffet as a la carte was never offered. However website research prompted us to ask one morning and to our surprise found it was offered. Anything served on the buffet hotplates was lukewarm at best. Whilst we were there, it took 3 days to fix the lid on the fresh fruit so that it didn't fall off backwards onto the floor everytime someone tried to access the fruit. Beach Club - i was expecting a different lunch menu here to that of the main restuarant, however it appeared to be the same. Missed opportunity for another differentiator. Additionally, service was slow, for most of our lunch, only one member of staff was operating having to dissappear for periods of time to collect food orders. Beach and Pool Service - outside of the ritual morning "smoothie" i think it was supposed to be icecream or sorbet, service was significantly lacking. One member of staff appeared to be working both the beach and pool areas to serve drinks, but was rarely seen to make requests and rarely proactively approach us to ask if we needed anything. Afternoon Tea - I'm just glad it was complimentary. Sandy Lane is a destination for Afternoon Tea drawing in locals and tourists from other hotels. I can't believe anyone would come to the fairmont for Afternoon Tea. Someone needs to find a new scone recipe. What was served resembled welsh cakes. No napkins were provided and the only cutlery supplied was the butter knife on each slide plate. We were two adults and a 2year old, however, no additional plate was offered for the baby despite her being sat in a baby seat at the table. (a very wobbly table that split tea unless i held my foot on one of the table leg feet). Finally, upon checkout, nobody asked if we had enjoyed our stay, simply asking if the bill was right and taking payment. I find it shocking that despite knowing that we paid for half board but only ate once in the hotel that no-one questioned this or asked about our stay. I wonder if our experience would have been any better re food if the Palm Terrace Restuarant was actually open, but we were told 2 days prior to our stay that this would be closed throughout our stay. I was shocked that the hotel had no backup generators for power as we found out due to experiencing a number of power outages on the island. Apprecaite that you can't control the electricity supply, as a 5 star hotel, it's expect preparation for such events. Sadly a number of other guest we talked to throughout our stay also expressed dissappointment with the food, so i know it's not just us. I would like to say that this is the first time ive felt so strongly about my experience somewhere that i've had to complain. We won't be staying at a fairmont again and am currently planning our next trip to Barbados next year at one of your competitors.

« Not to Fairmont standards »

The room was lovely as was the butler service but the restaurant was a bit unfriendly, we were hassled on the beach.

« Great suite in a fab location »

Thoroughly enjoyed, we’ll be back next year. Could do with it’s own spa & some lounge space for when it rains. Staff very friendly; many could remember our names. Bathrooms need heated towel rails(they don’t dry & need replacing frequently) & ventilation to stop dampness. Food & drink is expensive but so are most things in Barbados.

« WE ENJOYED OUR STAY, THE HOTEL IS IN A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION »

THE ACTUAL BED ROOM WAS MODERN AND OF A HIGH STANDARD, HOUSEKEEPING WAS AVERAGE. THE BATHROOM WAS OK BUT TIRED. WE WERE VERY SURPRISED AND DISAPPOINTED THAT THERE WAS NOT A SEPARATE FACILITY ( NOT A ROOM)FOR GUESTS TO USE TO FRESHEN UP BEFORE CHECKING OUT, ALL OTHER 5 STAR HOTELS HAVE THIS FACILITY. TO BE FAIR AFTER MUCH DISCUSSION WE WERE PROVIDED WITH A ROOM FOR A FEW MINUTES IN THE END

« Exceptional stay at the Fairmont Royal Pavillion »

The hotel is situated on a beautiful beach with incredibly clear blue waters. The rooms are all ocean front and recently renovated. The balconies have amazing views. And the groiunds are immaculate. And the staff are really exceptional: professional. courteous and friendly.

We were incredibly disappointed with our stay. The service was terrible an d we complained to the manager 3 times. I have a food allergy which was frequently missed despite reassurance that everything I was going to eat was ok. 4 out of 7 times that we had room service something was wrong or missing - cheese on salad despite a dairy allergy, no chicken on a chicken salad, etc. It got ridiculous. We only had canapes 2 nights because despite guaranteeing that they could cater the canapes to the food allergy, they still came containing dairy and gluten. Our aircon was broken for 4 of the 7 days, with big pools of water from a leaking drain and lack of consistency of cooling. After 3 technicians came finally the last one replaced the drain, and it was resolved. For the price we were paying we were completely shocked at the service, In addition, one of the restaurants was closed, which was not communicated to us at the time of booking. Overall incredibly disappointing and ridiculously over priced for what we experienced.

« A place to return »

The staff are wonderful. All rooms sea facing makes the hotel a great pick. We picked the wrong two weeks as the main restaurant was closed for refurbishment. We were told the day before we travelled and quote from hotel “don’t worry it will not affect your holiday”. That was not true. The pressure on the remaining restaurant at breakfast was too much and waiting times for a table was not acceptable. Although we were given a 250 US credit this did not make up for the bad experience at breakfast. Ultimately the lack of effort to accommodate people at breakfast left an overall feeling of disappointment. I love Fairmont but this one is not for me in the future.

« The hotel is run down. The rooms were disappointing. No water to drink in the rooms. »

We were disappointed in the room based on the price. We also needed help with an item that was lost in a storm and it was difficult to get any follow through from the hotel team.
