We had an amazing two days at this hotel. Great location with the main restaurants and bars all facing the beach. Our suite was beach facing, a great size and a good size bathroom. The staff where first class, friendly and efficient. No requests where a problem. We highly recommend this hotel.

Expensive but not excellent

We stayed 7 nights in a beachfront ground level suite. As others have mentioned the cost of the rooms is steep. For this I had higher expectations that this would be a 5 star experience. Here are my comments on this hotel and why I have given it a 3 out of 5. If the rooms were not as expensive I most likely would have given it a higher rating. In short I didn’t feel the price matched the experience. The best thing they have going for them is the friendly staff. They try very hard to make you feel comfortable and attend to any need/ wish. The location on the island and the beach are wonderful. Accessible to many great restaurants nearby. The rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and the decoration was tasteful. However the outside deck needs some TLC. The room looks right at the water and you can walk to the beach however you have to step over a wall and there are not steps and there are beach chairs right in front of your view that other hotel guests take. Not how it looks on the hotel website in terms of privacy. The grounds are beautiful. Gardeners do an amazing job keeping looking nice. There are many flowering trees and mature plants. The pool is small and when we were there quite busy so we didn’t use it. There is no spa on the property- however there is a very nice one at the Coral Reef just down the road. However my largest complaint is the food and drinks and the fact the restaurants lack ambiance and are tired looking. Three times there was plastic or tin foil in my food. The high tea was terrible and we only had it once despite it being included in our room. They gave us jam someone had already opened. The breakfast buffet was not attended to and there were flies all over it. Quality and selection of this was poor, with exception of the fresh omelettes. The bar also lacked ambience at night and they should have a better selection of premium alcohol. As a result we ate every meal except breakfast off the property ( Lone Star next door was great) Again I felt the hotel lacked the polish or a 5 star experience and we paid close to 1200 CAD a night and for this I expected excellence. What we got was average and in my view a 3 to 3.5 star level. Having stayed at many 5 star resorts I expected much more - if we had paid 50% of this I probably would have been happy . Sorry I can’t provide a better review I really wanted to be able to.

We do appreciate you taking the time to give us this very valuable feedback and assure you that we will make every effort to use this insight to continuously improve our product. We hope to see you again in the near future, where we would have another opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Staff outstandingly kind & happy x

Best location on the Island, luckily been here since 87'. Yes it is right on the beach, no road noise & stunning approach, Huge Palms superb! Unfortunately though, in recent years kids are allowed, love kids but after a quiet time and didn't get that I'm afraid. Used to be great Nov-Mar Adults only though Commercial times, I understand. One aspect really disappointed, for many years Elegant Casual dress for Dinner,, nowadays Guests in shorts sandals t-shirts in the Palm Terrace, not good at all !!! .Yes, Staff were outstanding, names I remember Shelly, Laverne, Tawanda oh so Wonderful as ever, The Bellman, so sorry forget your name, & JC top man were the best!. I shall return, though sadly though the Fairmont has lost some of it;'s charm. Ps: Don't wish to criticise but while all the team were absolutely outstanding, there was one who was not, she was rude, impolite, chaotic, intimidating, I'm not alone in this view, wish her well but it would be nice if she moved to the Hilton, before I return, as out well out of place at the Wonderful Fairmont Pavilion Barbados. God Bless x

The room was old and gross. Stains on the chaise, an insufferable noisy a/c (I had to read with headphones playing white noise in), the tub would just start running randomly, the toilet had issues flushing and the breakfast was the worst I’ve ever been offered. The first morning the egg lady acted like my husband didn’t even exist. Everything pre made was awful. We even had to play bellman on the way out since there was no one available. For the money we paid this place was so not worth it.
